Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Crazy in Love

Friday, 15 May 2015

Charlotte Tilbury seemed to be the brand of 2014. From the Film Star Bronze and Glow to the Revolutionary Matte Lipsticks it just seems to be an all round, fabulous brand with incredible packaging. We've all heard of the Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk, a gorgeous nude lip liner however some of the other Lip Cheats in my opinion were pushed to the side.


For Christmas I received the Lip Cheat in Crazy In Love as a surprise. I never heard of it before and lip liners were never really my thing until eventually I rooted it out and gave it a whirl (haha oh look at me and my beauty blogging puns). After finding one or two MAC lip liners quite drying I was really taken aback when this was so easy to apply on the lips! It has a very creamy formulation and leaves a satin finish on the lips which lasts a surprisingly long time. As it is a beautiful reddish berry shade it goes perfectly under Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 107, the cult beauty favourite. 

Even though I was sold on the CT Lip Cheats I couldn't help but notice one or two minor things that has room to improve. First of all I found it difficult to apply evenly on the lips but hey- that just could be because I haven't mastered lip liners yet (not even in the slightest). Make sure you exfoliate your lips first before using this but thats just a given before using them anyway.. The thing that annoys me about this product though is the packaging, you have to sharpen it so often. I'm just not used to that at all with products but I guess I'll have to get used to it!

Overall with this beautiful lip pencil, the pros definitely outweigh the cons and I can't wait to get my hands on some more Lip Cheats.. Or even the Revolutionary Matte Lipstick if I'm lucky!

Have you ever tried a Lip Cheat? What's your favourite lip liner?
