Sweet Underground!…A Lipcote Lipstick Review

November 5, 2015


Brand Name: Charlotte Tilbury

Lipstick Colour: Velvet Underground

Price: £23.00

Lipcote Rating: 4/5

Acclaimed British make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury’s signature range of 10 lipsticks have been curated with modern and classic style icons in mind. We decided to try out a flirty bright pink called ‘Velvet Underground’, a shade we think someone like Nicky Minaj would just love! The full range apparently suits any skin tone and includes Tilbury’s break through ‘Lipstick Tree’ formula protecting lips from pollutants such as UV damage or oxidative stress.

Her bold claim that this tropical plant originating from America leaves lips ‘cashmere soft and irresistible’ sounded too good to be true, however this lipstick really does live up to its hype! Steeped in history, the colour from this plants’ seeds were used by indigenous Americans to colour their mouths. When applying, you can feel just how enriching this lipstick is, and because of this make sure you blot well between layers. However, once it stays put the colour feels comfortable for hours and the highly pigmented formula means the finish is nicely opaque.

The colour is a perky and bold candy pink, which smells vanilla sweet and comes in the most gorgeous rose gold casing with a chic column design. Overall, we think this is a fantastic shade that can see you through drab winter weather and then enhance your spring wardrobe too! X
