Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Kim K.W.Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Kim Kardashian West

As much as I try my hardest to not buy into any hype regarding new beauty launches, I have to admit I've been waiting for Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips collection to be released. This collection has been devised in collaboration with twelve inspirational women and as soon as I saw the nude shades, they had to be mine. As I already own Penelope Pink (look out for a comparison post soon), there was only one nude which I needed to pick up from the collection, from no other than the Queen of a nude lip - Kim Kardashian-West.

The colour itself is more pink based on me and it reminds me quite a bit of MAC's Creme Cup, personally it doesn't work with a dark smokey eye on me and I'm finding this to be more of a day to day lipstick colour. What I've found with any lipstick from Charlotte Tilbury is that the formula of her lipsticks (even the mattes) aren't drying on the lips and have amazing staying power. What makes these lipsticks different to others on the market is the fact that the Lipstick tree helps protect your lips from UV damage - I'll be honest I very rarely use SPF on my lips, so you're protecting yourself without even thinking about it.

Kim KW does apply very opaque and if you're not a fan of an intense nude/pink lip, I would suggest gradually building this colour up on your lips. This also looks amazing dotted in the middle of a more brown toned nude lip, to give more of an ombre or dimensional look to your lips. Either way this is one lipstick from Charlotte Tilbury you need in your collection asap. Are you a fan of the nude/pink lip?
