Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect Lipstick Review

Charlotte tilbury lipstick in gold packaging with a lip liner

A few weeks back I popped into the Charlotte Tilbury flagship store in Covent Garden (if you’re a CT fan, you need to get there). I knew exactly what I wanted to try, The K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Bitch Perfect and the iconic Lip Cheat in Pillowtalk. After lusting after it online the only thing that was left to do was try this combo myself. I dropped £39 on both (gulp), so I thought I would share my thoughts on the combo, and do a review of the Bitch Perfect lipstick!

When on the quest to try Bitch Perfect I was after an everyday lipstick that was easy to wear and I quickly throw on. As much as I love the collection I have, so many of my lipsticks are bold. I was after something natural looking, wearable and comfortable on the lips.

Full Review: Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick in Bitch Perfect

The Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Bitch Perfect

Firstly, let’s address the price. It’s £25 for 3.5g. It’s not an affordable lipstick, however it does feel luxurious and in comparison to other high end brands I’m actually willing to pay it. One thing we can definitely say about Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks before even looking at the lipstick itself is the gorgeous packaging. The makeup us seriously luxe.

The Formula:

Bitch Perfect is part of the K.I.S.S.I.N.G range. The formula of these lipsticks contains hydrating ingredients to nourish the lips, there’s also ingredients to protect against UV damage and fight oxidative stress too. Basically, it’s a good one for those of us with naturally dry lips. Whilst the formula is glossy, the actual colour is opqeue, and I’ve never experienced any bleeding outside of the lipline. One lipstick from the K.I.S.S.I.N.G range is sold every 2 minutes, so I think we’re safe when it comes to formulation being spot on!

The Colour ‘Bitch Perfect’:

The shade Bitch Perfect is a peachy pink/ nude, not quite in the nude category on me as I’m slightly too pale for that, but it makes for a gorgeous everyday, wearable shade. I find this to really flatter my skin tone and lift my complexion which is exactly what I was looking for. I can imagine it being the perfect shade for a bride. It looks so natural yet still manages to bring a look together. It also contains small flexes of shimmer to help make the lips look fuller – which I’m definitely in need of.

As this lipstick is from the K.I.S.S.I.N.G range, it provides more of a dimensional and creamy looking finish on the lips. The formula feels moisturising and comfortable, a huge benefit of the creamy formulation. Considering the finish it provides it lasts a good 5-6 hours before needing a top up.

Overall I’m really impressed with this lipstick. It’s long lasting, has a gorgeous finish and the shade is a wearable peachy, pink nude that I’m here for!

The Pillowtalk Lipliner 

Since first purchasing the Lip Cheat in Pillowtalk way back in 2016, Charlotte Tilbury now has an entire collection dedicated to the ‘Pillowtalk’ look. I have wrote a full review of liner and comparison to the Pillowtalk lipstick here for anyone interested.

    I dont own any CT product but I know they are amazing and totally worth £36 for a lipstick and lip liner. Also, the photo you took makes it look amazing!

      Thank you Claire! I know this lipstick looks a lot different on other people, my lips aren't really very pigmented so that might have something to do with it xx

    I've heard so much about both of these but actually haven't tried any of the KISSING formula or any of her liners! I need to fix that – this is a gorgeous combination xx Jasmine Talks Beauty

      Thank you Jasmine, ahh yes you do! I think the matte revolution range is slightly more impressive just because they are matte yet feel so comfortable, but the KISSING lipsticks are so gorgeous. I have too many CT products on my wishlist right now haha xx

    I agree, her lip products are definitely worth the splurge! I think people need to try it for themselves to believe it. Her lip cheat pencils are amazing, I have the shade Nude Iconic and it has lived in my handbag since I picked it up. It makes a world of a difference in making lipsticks last all day. I haven't tried any of the KISSING line but the matte revolution ones are a dream and sit so comfortably on my lips. I've been alternating between Very Victoria and Bond Girl as my everyday shades.

    I don't really have a favourite CT product because even though I want to try so many things from the brand, I feel like each of her products cost an arm and a leg. I have heard a few people rave about Bitch Perfect though, it looks like perfect spring/summer lipstick (as you said!).
