Charlotte Tilbury Mini Lipstick Charms - An Ideal Gift

In my opinion Charlotte Tilbury has probably been the high end make up brand of 2015. Launched in 2014, world famous make up artist Charlotte Tilbury's line has already achieved iconic status. Her range just screams quality and class from every pore. Packaged in deep burgundy, gold and rose gold toned packaging, this beautiful range is majorly lust worthy.

Unfortunately such beauty doesn't come cheap, and for me it's a brand that's something to aim towards, rather than something that I would buy everyday. Christmas is a time to treat yourself though, and this year I decided to treat myself to a little something from the Charlotte Tilbury stable.


I'm not a fan of using stock images but thanks to awful lighting and a beautiful product that just needs to be shown, in this case I'll make an exception. The Charlotte Tibury KISSING Fallen From The Lipstick Mini Lipstick Charms Set is a limited edition kit that's specially designed for the festive season, and for me it was a perfect way to lose my Charlotte Tilbury virginity.


Slide open this beautiful, metallic, burgundy box, with rose gold embossed text and stars and you're greeted with three beautifully packaged teeny, tiny lipsticks.


These lipsticks may be tiny, but no expense has been spared. Each 1g lipstick is packaged in a stunning rose gold tone bullet, which is embossed with the Charlotte Tilbuy CT logo, and lots of tiny little stars. This kit contains lipstick charms so each of the lipsticks also features a satin ribbon on the lid which means that you can tie them to your Christmas tree branches or you could even attach them to your keyring.



This kit includes 3 of Charlotte Tilbury's most popular lipsticks from the KISSING range - Penelope Pink, So Marilyn and Bitch Perfect. All of the lipsticks in the KISSING range contains a secret ingredient - the Lipstick Tree, which is an antioxidant that protects the lips from UV damage and external pollution. They also contain a variety of waxes and light diffusing properties.

All of these lipsticks feel super smooth and creamy on the lips. They have a slight vanilla taste, and scent and the colour just seems to glide on and perfect even the driest of lips. The wear time wasn't amazing but I have no problem reapplying such a lovely lipstick with such a glossy finish, and such a nourishing and moisturising feel.


Penelope Pink


All of these lipsticks are beautiful in their own way but Penelope Pink has to be my favourite. On hearing the name I thought that this would be a very Lady Penelope from Thunderbirds pink  - oh Parker indeed, but in fact it's a beautiful  peachy pink / nude.


It's creamy, pigmented and it's absolutely perfect for everyday wear. That said this lipstick could easily take you from day to night - simply wear it with a neutral eye during the day, and vamp it up with a smokey eye at night.

So Marilyn


I'm going to be honest and say that red lipsticks terrify me, and this one was no exception, but sometimes you need to be brave and this is the perfect season to experiment with a red lip.


So Marilyn is your typical, vampy, Hollywood starlet, berry red. It's smooth and super creamy, so I'm not sure how well it will fare under the mistletoe, but it apply it careful maybe with a lip brush and you have the perfect shade to wear with your party frock. I've only tried this out so far but I think I might be brave and team it with my Christmas day all black outfit.

Bitch Perfect


This was one of the first Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks that I added to my wishlist and I'm really pleased to finally have it in my possession. Bitch Perfect is one of those brown toned nudes, with just a hint of peach and warmth that you need in your collection.


I already have about a zillion in my stash but this one is a welcome addition. It looks quite similar to Penelope Pink in the tube but as you can see here, it darker, warmer, and much more of a solid colour. Again it very wearable and very moisturising.

Admittedly these lipsticks are tiny at only 1g each, but they are a great way of trying the Charlotte Tilbury KISSING range. If the full sizes are anywhere near as good as these minis then the KISSING lipsticks really are a must have. They are smooth, creamy, pigmented and beautifully moisturising - wear time maybe isn't the best but these lipsticks are a real joy to use, and the packaging is amazing. The Charlotte Tibury KISSING Fallen From The Lipstick Mini Lipstick Charms Set retails at £29 from both John Lewis and Charlotte Tilbury online and from Charlotte Tilbury counters and the stand alone store. They are still pricey for the size but I think that this kit would make a fabulous gift for any make up addict so to celebrate the festive season I've picked up an extra set to give away to one of my lucky readers.

All you need to do is fill in the Rafflecopter form below and you're in the hat. Please make sure that fulfil all the conditions and follow in all the ways that you say because I will be checking. This giveaway is open worldwide and ends on the 3rd January 2016 so you've got plenty of time to enter.


If you have any questions, or if you want to share the Charlotte Tilbury love please leave me a comment, and good luck x
