What’s in a lipstick Shade/Tone?

Hello everyone,

A bit of a rant today which I rarely do, but I feel I really need to in this case, as it was a high end product and a bit of a considered purchase for me. When I or anyone else buy a lipstick, we are all looking for that specific shade that catches our eye and we want it because .. it is the one for me!

The world is full of lipsticks and lipstick shades and we have our choice of hundreds or thousands. So when I saw the Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in Kidman’s Kiss, I thought it was stunning; the most beautiful pink toned lipstick I had seen in a long time and I had to have it.

What I got this morning looks nothing like the picture at all; not even remotely like the shade on the model and that makes me cross as I was so looking forward to this lipstick.

Charlotte Tilbury is considered to be one of the world’s best makeup artists and if anyone can nail a shade I would like it think she could do that! But sadly not in this instance, the colour is completely off and to be honest the formula goes on a bit patchy too. I put some primer on my hands to get my picture too. Below are the images from the website and the shade I of course selected in Kidman’s Kiss and a couple of pictures from home. One is a swatch of said lipstick.

I am gutted this was not the colour represented online and that the shade is so completely different to the one in the photos. It cost £24.00 and is completely different to what I thought I was ordering. I do not know how companies can do this to people. You buy in good faith, only to be so let down when the product arrives. Well I guess that is all I have to say about that really ..

Just to add I did however get some really good customer service on this from the CT website and I really appreciate that.

Bye for now folks..

 

By for now folks,

yours very disappointed ….
