There’s nothing I love more than a beautiful lipstick and with Charlotte Tilbury’s products, that’s definitely what you get! I picked up this beauty yesterday after spotting it a few weeks before Christmas, when I fell in love with Lost Cherry.
It’s a slightly different style to Lost Cherry which is from the Matte Revolution range, whereas Velvet Underground is part of the K.I.S.S.I.N.G collection. The first thing that caught my attention was the shade of the lipstick, a vibrant fuchsia pink! Although I adore the colour pink, I tend to wear red lipsticks a lot more, I’m not really sure why, I guess I just feel they suit me better.
However, something about this pink felt a bit different to me, almost quite daring compared to the warm barbie shades I’m used to. I was pretty sure that I didn’t have another lipstick like it, however, I did realize a few hours later that this sadly wasn’t the case. When you have as many lipsticks as I do, this happens quite often, but fear not, Velvet Underground has a more glossy fuchsia finish compared to my other hot pink matte shade from Rimmel.
Charlotte Tilbury is quickly becoming one of my favourite make up brands, although I’ve only tried their lipsticks so far, they are so aesthetically pleasing and such good quality! I look forward to trying all of their other products one day too. Compared to the Matte Revolution collection, the K.I.S.S.I.N.G collection have a normal shaped lipstick tip, but still apply wonderfully. There are currently 10 other shades available, my most wanted being of course, So Marilyn – need I even explain why?
Another lipstick on my wish list has to be Amazing Grace, I actually tested it the same day I bought Velvet Underground and it looked like a beautiful rusty red shade. I’ve said this before in previous posts and I’ll say it again, what I love about this brand is the lipsticks are so clearly inspired by so many Old Hollywood Beauties. That’s not just me assuming either, it’s stated on the website!
I decided to wear my new skater dress I bought in the January Sales on Very from South, for just £15 (!), it’s now gone down to £12.99 and is also available in black and pink as well a my colour, cobalt blue. I absolutely adore dresses that are modern but look like they’re from the 1940s and 1950s and this one is just that.
The lace detail creates such a classic vintage feel and it also goes in at the waist – a must for vintage lovers. It’s the rare combination of fairly fitted but comfy, personally, I wish it was slightly tighter on the waist but a belt shall fix that. However, for such a bargain price I really can’t complain! I absolutely love the simple button detail on the back of the dress, the littlest things definitely make the most difference.
