Charlotte Tilbury Kidman's Kiss Lipstick | Worth The Splurge?

If you have followed my blog for a while now, you will know I am absolutely in love with Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks. 

I've raved about how brilliant they are for a pretty long time now, but the price tag? Not so brilliant. Just one of these lipsticks would set you back £24.00. That's an awful lot of money for just one lipstick, when I could happily spend £5 on a decent drugstore lipstick that gives the same sort of effect. 

The shade I've been loving recently is called Kidman's Kiss, it's been my go to throughout May when I want a pop of colour on my lips that isn't too drastic or in your face. 

Kidman's Kiss, which is named after the gorgeous Nicole Kidman, is described as being a "rose petal pink matte lipstick", anything that's named rose petal pink instantly draws me in, I'm a sucker for pretty pink products! It's the most perfect shade of pink for my skin tone, I find it quite tricky wearing pale pinks as my skin tone kind of makes it seem as if I've just slapped a load of foundation on my lips.. not really the look I'm going for. However this shade being a touch darker than my usual pink lipsticks instantly stops that and complements it well. What's also pretty fab is that Charlotte Tilbury doesn't just show product photos on her website, but also has an array of images of girls with different skin tones, all wearing the same shade of lipstick. How handy is that? 

Just to look at, I am completely obsessed with the lipstick, the rose gold packaging, the pretty detailing on the stick itself, it's so effortlessly beautiful - you wouldn't believe how long it's taken me to ruin the 'perfection' of it. Even the shape of the lipstick makes it so much easier to apply than any other brand I own, with the sharp edges I find no need to use a lipliner, of course the option is still there, but I haven't found the need to. 

Is it really worth the splurge?!
Honestly, yes. The quality is like nothing else I've ever tried, being a matte lipstick you would assume that it would be drying, it's really, really not. Quite the opposite in fact, it applies so smoothly, doesn't drag at all, and is super creamy. If you can look past the price tag, and focus on the incredible quality, and beauty of it, I would 100% recommend the splurge. Or if anything else, it looks gorgeous on your dressing table!

  6. This shade looks soo dreamy and I'm still dying to try out a Charlotte Tilbury lipstick - I was honestly super close to buying one this month, but I just can't justify the £24 price tag, especially when I hardly ever wear any of my lipsticks that I do already own.. Hopefully one day I will purchase one of the CT lipsticks xo
