Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Love Bite

~purchased by me~


Everytime I foray into a new brand for lip products, particularly lipsticks, I always get one red. If you know me personally or have seen my FOTDs or selfies, you know I rarely wear red on the lips. I love my nude pink, nude peach, pink-mauves and corals but I have a hard time finding a super good red. It’s not my way to measure how good a brand is but since I rarely wear and only use it for certain occasions, mainly parties. So with that in mind, I look for an opaque, non-drying, moisturizing, non-feathering, non-migrating, long lasting formula. Slight staining properties is a plus (stains with same color as the shade used). All the above without any aids, meaning lipliner, concealer on the edges, anti-feathering liner.


This is love at first swipe. Opaque at first swipe, non-drying, moisturizing, long-lasting with slight staining capabilities. And then I find smudges of the lipstick on my chin, above my upper lip, etc. Maybe I should let it dry first. Ugh, I still love it so much.


I would give this a 4/5. I took one point away for the feathering. Despite that, it is still my top red lipstick. Do you have a top red lipstick in your collection? Do share below and thanks for dropping by.
