If you follow this blog you’ll know that Charlotte Tilbury is one of my favorite beauty brands. The packaging, the formulas, and the shades are all exceptional. Charlotte Tilbury has many new holiday gift sets available and the presentation is just beautiful. The packaging of the sets themselves is so luxe and the optional gift boxes and ribbon take it one step further.
The set I was most excited about was the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Archive ($85 US/$100 CAD). This set features 3 best-selling shades of nude pink lipsticks that were limited edition over the past few years. This gorgeous shades have been brought back and and brought together in this online exclusive set. Nude pink lipsticks are my absolute favorite so this set had to become mine! The three lipsticks are:
- Matte Revolution Lipstick in Miss Kensington – English-rose pink inspired by the quintessentially English ‘haughty but naughty’ girls of the swinging ‘60s in Chelsea & Kensington and the pastel hues in Norman Parkinson’s pictures.
- Matte Revolution Lipstick in Between the Sheets – a vintage rose petal shade that encapsulates just-kissed, natural lips with a flush of color that was named by Charlotte’s social media followers.
- K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Confession – a dusky, tawny nude shade flecked with gold particles inspired by the full lips of super models in a nourishing, moisturizing lipstick formula.
