First Impressions Review: Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick - So Marilyn

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in So Marilyn £23

I'm not one to review a product after only one use, however after trying this sachet of Charlotte Tilbury's K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in So Marilyn, I was so impressed that I had to share it with you.

I received this cute little sachet in my Dream Box (post here) however I don't think they actually sell these, which is a shame as I think they're pretty nifty, they're perfect for trying out colours from high-end brands when you don't quite fancy forking out so much money on a colour that you aren't sure would suit you and they're perfect for keeping in your handbag.

Charlotte Tilbury does the classiest packaging, whether that be a full sized product or a sachet like this, I love this little envelope and the way the cut out lips on the front reveal the colour inside. Although the instructions, see picture 2, look really simple, my lips are pretty small so I won't lie, it did get a little messy, but I love the concept and it was easily rectified with a cotton bud or two.

This lipstick is super pigmented, long lasting and leaves a gorgeous glossy finish. Formulated with the secret ingredient, a nourishing lipstick tree extract, it provides protection from UV damage and other external factors, whilst the special blend of waxes make the lipstick glide on with ease and leaves the lips feeling smooth and moisturised all day. The formula ensures that the colour doesn't bleed, whilst the light diffusing pigments in this lipstick creates the illusion of fuller lips. It is also free from parabens and the company do not test on animals.

Although the colour looks quite light in the third picture, the second picture is a truer reflection, it is the perfect classic red, not too light or dark but the perfect in between colour. I think the colour suits my skin tone and I am so happy that I got to try it out as I would definitely purchase it.

Have you tried any of the Charlotte Tilbury Range yet?
