Charlotte Tilbury Valentine K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick

Happy Valentines beauties! Hope you're having a lovely day, whatever you're doing to celebrate! I couldn't think of a more perfect lipstick to post about today than Charlotte Tilbury's new shade Valentine. My heart pretty much stopped when I saw this announced on social media and whilst I know there is huge love for Pillow Talk (and understandably so), my eye was drawn straight to this one. I know there has been a lot of reviews on this so I'll keep it short and sweet but I just couldn't wait to photograph this gorgeous gem for the blog and write a review!

Valentine is a perfect petal pink; a great everyday nude that I think would suit most people. I find it darker than Kim KW, but just as wearable. The formula is beautiful, it has a slight sheen to it but amazing coverage, you only need one swipe of the lipstick to see it's true colour. I love the Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. formula just as much as the Matte Revolution lipsticks, I find that both just have an amazing way of making your lips look plumper somehow?! Maybe it's the magic of Charlotte Tilbury but I seriously love all of her lipsticks and they are fast becoming my favourite formula.

I find that all of the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks last a pretty long time on me, I got about 5 hours wear out of it before I had lunch and then re-applied. I think unless you are using matte liquid lipsticks or some sort of lipstick sealer then you can't expect lipsticks to last the whole day, and I'm always happy if I only have to re-apply twice in a day!

It swatches quite dark on my skin, but actually comes out a lot lighter on the lips. I can't actually think of a lipstick that I own that would compare to this one for reference; my favourite MAC Angel is lighter and more blue based, but I have to say this one is definitely competing for top spot now. I absolutely love it! 

Have you tried Valentine yet? What did you think?
