Charlotte Tilbury | limited edition | Norman Parkinson lipsticks

CT one

I am so weak when it comes to lipsticks, especially Charlotte Tilbury matte revolution lipsticks. I have had my eye on the new limited edition Norman Parkinson collection for awhile. At first I talked myself out of getting anything but having now owned two matte revolution lipsticks from her core collection and discovering how much I love them I knew I would kick myself if the two limited edition ones went out of stock - that thought panicked me! So I hastily made a Selfridge's online order, paid the next day delivery (because I am super impatient) and these beautiful things arrived on my door step. Firstly, the packaging is the same as her core range apart from the sticker on the bottom of the lipstick is white with rose gold font rather than her signature brown. It smells the same as as her other matte revolution lipsticks which is a subtle vanilla scent and the product is in her classic rose gold bullet.

1975 Red £23.00

I wasn't sure if this was going to suit me initially but I'm glad I went with my gut because it is stunning. The mix of red and orange tones is perfect. It is a lovely sophisticated orange-red which can be applied directly from the bullet. It doesn't bleed and the lasting power is incredible! I had applied it at 7:30am and I didn't touch it up once until after lunch and it was still evenly on my lips! It didn't fade in the liner lip nor did it gather weirdly around my mouth. I was so surprised as I have this issue with a lot of other lipsticks in my collection.

Miss Kensington £23.00

I have been hunting for the perfect nude and I think the hunt is over. This is amazing, again like 1795 it doesn't fade weirdly or gather weirdly. It has a creamy texture but a matte finish (like all her matte revolution lipsticks). It doesn't last as long as 1795 but that is expected from a nude. The pink tones in it are not too pink yet it isn't too nude either as it doesn't wash me out and looks so great with a smoky eye.

I am so glad I got my hands on these two lipsticks. I can't wait to pick up more shades from her range because I so absolutely hooked!


  1. They are both gorgeous shades - I don't think they'd suit me but I really want to pick up some of the Norman Parkinson collection as the packaging is dreamy xx

    1. I didn't think 1975 would suit me but I was so surprised that it did! I love the packaging as well. I hope she brings out another limited edition range at Christmas!
