Charlotte Tilbury has certainly been making waves in beauty land ever since she launched her own high end beauty brand. The entire range by the make-up artist combines amazing quality with jawdropping packaging that just makes you want to buy it all. I reviewed my Amazing Grace matte lipstick earlier and it is now time to turn out attention to another much hyped product from her collection: the Lip Cheat.
I choose the Lip Cheat Re-Shape & Re-Size Lip Liner in Pillow Talk, a soft pink nude color. These waterproof lip pencils are very versatile. First of all, it does an amazing job as a lip pencil underneath your lipstick. I usually line my lips first and then fill them in completely to create the perfect base for long lasting lipstick.
As the Re-Shape & Re-Size in the name implies, these can be used to balance out an uneven lip. Very few people have perfectly symmetrical lips and bright lipstick tends to emphasize even the smallest differences. This pencil is a great way of changing your natural shape just a little and it makes sure your lipstick stays in place perfectly without feathering or shifting. Of course, if you happen to like the Kylie Jenner effect you could use this for a more pronounced reshape but that just isn’t my thing.
I have found myself using just the Lip Cheat on its own as well. Pillow Talk is very close to my natural lip color, so this really gives a my-lips-but-better effect. It gives a great matte look on its own but also looks lovely with a tiny bit of gloss on top.
I completely understand the hype around this product: it is so versatile and convenient. Cannot wait to visit a Charlotte Tilbury counter and check out some of the other shades.
