Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips

I have been a fan of Charlotte Tilbury's matte lipsticks for quite some time now so when she released her matte liquid lipstick collection, I was beyond eager to get my hands on it and try it out. Fortunately enough for me I was sent a few samples of the matte liquid lipstick from Charlotte Tilbury's Hollywood lips collection to try out so I have gone ahead and tried them on for you and you can check them out below. 

There are about ten shades in the Hollywood Lips collection and I was sent three (Rising Star, Too Bad I'm Bad and Screen Siren) matte lipsticks from the Hollywood lips collection that I chose myself as I felt these shades would compliment my skin shade and I wasn't wrong about that.

I'll admit that I was most hesitant about trying on Rising Star. Although the colour shade looks darker on the website once I received the lipstick and had it in my hand I felt the shade looked a little lighter than I was expecting. However with the aid of my brown lip liner it looked pretty good on and as you can see from the images above, it compliments dark skin tones pretty well. Rising Star has now become my favourite pink lipstick to wear and I find myself wanting to wear it nearly every day now.

Once I had tried on Rising Star, I had no doubt that Too Bad I'm Bad would suit me and look good on my skin complexion given that that it is a slightly darker shade of pink. It's a little bolder in colour than Rising Star and a welcome addition to my shades of pink. If I consider Rising Star to be my everyday lipstick shade, then Too Bad I'm Bad is what I would call my going-out-to-the bar shade of lipstick.

I always feel like you can't go wrong with a red shade of lipstick and Screen Siren is one of those crimson shades that is bound to suit any and everyone. I fell in love with this shade the minute came across it on the website and when I got my hands on it, I had no doubt nor hesitation that it would suit me. I also happen to feel like the texture of Screen Siren is a little bit more smoother in comparison to the other two lipsticks. It seems to be that bit more creamier and I love that!

Overall, I found all the lipsticks I tried on from the hollywood lips collection to be non drying and long lasting on the lips. I was pleasantly surprised by it's staying power on the lips having worn them for an entire day without feeling the need to top up. I found the texture to be paste like and fast drying which is a plus for me. I am now eager to try out some more shades from the collection and I will share those with you as soon as I manage to get my hands on more. I must say that Charlotte Tilbury really nailed it with this product and it may just topple the Hot lips lipstick collection as my favourite lipstick product from Charlotte Tilbury.
