Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipstick Review and Swatches

August 29, 2017

I took a mini break from blogging as I just felt exhausted from everything, and after my two weeks of holiday in Japan, I am mentally re-charged again to get back to my usual routine of life including my favorite blogging. This review is long overdue, as I have had the Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips for a while. I ordered 5 amazing beautiful shades on Net-A-Porter based on these online swatches  (big thumbs up for the swatches on her website as they are always accurate and reliable). It was a 100% successful order for me,  as every color is what I expected and they all wear so beautifully that I struggle to pick a favorite!

Charlotte has several lines of lip colors, and the Matte Revolution (reviewed here) is the best for the texture and finish in my opinion. The HOT Lips lipstick range was born under the collaborations with 12 female celebrities (hence all lipstick shades are named after them), and it has the formula as the matte revolution line.  It gives a velvety matte finish without making the lips look and feel dry, and the color stays put for 5-6 hours depending on the color.  It applies silky smooth and streak-free, and it has a lovely buttery but non-slippery consistency so it is easy to blend without feathering. It makes the lips feel soft and plump for a youthful look. Overall as a matte lipstick, this is one of the best formulas you can find in the market.


As usual, I picked up some nude, MLBB and red and pink lip colors. All the colors are very effortless and are great for everyday wear, and they go with all sorts of makeup looks and occasions.

Kidman Kiss – is a medium peachy-pink nude. The color is similar to my natural lip color so it doesn’t wash me out and is a such an easy to wear elegant color for a natural look.



Super Cindy – is a true medium muted nude color. It has the perfect balance of nude and dusty pink that instantly makes your lips look more sultry and edgy. One of the IT shade to get your hands on now!



Secret Salma – is a true medium MLBB rosey pink. This is a must have color that most girls can’t get enough of including myself!




Hot Emily – is a coral red that is just as pretty and hot and takes your breath away like the real person. Dab it to the center for a gradient look that gives a more youthful and girly appearance.



Miranda May – I would say this is a very Miranda Kerr color as she always wears a similar lip color in pictures. It is a very pretty and friendly pink coral that would look flattering on most girls, and it instantly brightens up your complexion.

Love a great matte lip and these lipsticks sound perfect! Can’t pick which shade I like best, I’d wear them all. Thanks for the lip pics!

I was just looking at these the other day, the Miranda May was on my wish list, but I have far too many lipsticks that I am really not wearing enough at the moment!! Gotta remember to use them more often.

These colours look fantastic on you! I’m not CT’s biggest fan but I love the colours and her makeup range seem to be well thought-out!
