After swatching up the beautiful "Velvet Underground" from the Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick ($38 CAD) range, I knew I had to go back for more so today I want to share with you three more amazing shades from the line. If lipsticks are your thing, you do not want to miss these........
The K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick comes in a gorgeous shiny rose gold tube with decorative ridges running lengthwise across the outside. The cap is etched with the Charlotte Tilbury initial and the tube has a really nice weight to it.
The K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipsticks feature an incredibly rich and moisturizing formulation. All three shades I'm reviewing today are super pigmented. The lipsticks apply smoothly and they leave behind a nice sheen. The only downside is the slightly short wear time (four or so hours, depending on the shade), but that's usually the price you have to pay for a rich and hydrating formulation.
Stoned Rose: Nude rose, I find this shade to be quite a chameleon. Under certain lighting, it looks very warm, almost peachy, but under other lightings, it looks more mauve.
Love Bite: A bright true red, this is definitely a classic yet daring shade.
So Marilyn: This is a deep glam red, so very Marilyn. It's a great alternative to bright reds if you are like me and find reds like "Love Bite" a bit too intimidating.

I really appreciate how consistent the K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick range is. A nude rose like "Stoned Rose" is just as rich and as pigmented as a bright red like "Love Bite". All three shades are slick and hydrating. If you love lipsticks then you are going to have to check out the Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G range!
