My First Luxury Makeup Purchase!

I am not one to fork out on luxury products very often but this was an occasion. While I was in London last weekend, my granddad very kindly gave me some money to spend and so I thought I would treat myself to my first ever luxury makeup product.

Charlotte Tilbury is a brand that always captures my eye, the packaging is so beautiful and you constantly hear great things about her products. Well, I was in Selfridges just browsing the makeup counters one minute, and then the next I was at the till paying for a £23 lipstick. This is probably my most spontaneous purchase ever, but I am so in love, so I thought I would share it with you today.

Not going to lie I had no intention on buy this lipstick, at all! I heard great things about the formula and all that but I wasn't ready to pay £23 for a lipstick. I had seen the shade Amazing Grace before and didn't really think much of it, it was not very me and I thought I wouldn't wear it. Saying that, I am one of those people who loves anything with there name on it. Therefore when I was in London, I picked up the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in the shade Amazing Grace.

You shouldn't really buy a £23 lipstick just for the name but even though I did, I still really like the colour. The colour is a dark pink, which is very out of my comfort zones, because we all know I love a good nude but never the less, I think I am going to get a lot of wear out of it. I have worn it a few times and I am head over heels in love with the formula. It is matte so the pigment is out of this world, you get an even layer in one swipe, but it is so comfortable and creamy on the lips, it feels like your wearing a thick lip balm. Since it is matte, the colour lasted such a long time but when it did fade, it was even and still looked great.

You have probably seen how beautiful the packaging of these lipsticks are online, but they are even more beautiful in person. It is a beautiful rose gold tube, with the "CT" sign engraved on the lid with the shade name on the bottom. So much thought must have gone into the design of these lipsticks because even the shape of the bullet is made so that it can be applied really precisely and easily.

I hope in the future I can get some more of these because I am totally in love with this one. Do you own any lipsticks from Charlotte Tilbury?
