Bitch Is Actually Perfect | Beauty Talk

This was major impulse, I will say this up front, and it had a significant chance of going horribly wrong. I hardly ever buy lipsticks online unless I've seen them in person. I never trust internet swatches when it comes to lipstick. That is, until a few days ago when I threw caution to the wind and ordered two lipsticks from the Charlotte Tilbury website, which now ships to Canada and was offering free shipping for the month of June (!!).

I was a boring beauty blogger and ordered Nude Kate and Bitch Perfect, the latter mostly because of its amazing name. Both are a tad warmer than I'm used to, but since it's summer and the sun is shining, I thought I would try some warmer tones. 

I won't go on and on, though; I really like these. Great colour payoff, not drying, good longevity. I was a bit terrified of Nude Kate when I first applied it straight out of the tube, but after experimenting with application I found a way that really works for me: carefully dabbing it on. Bitch Perfect requires a lot less care, and I absolutely love the result. Bitch is actually perfect.

Both are really natural and not at all daring, but honestly that's generally my jam when it comes to lips. I'm a wimp. Nude and neutral are where it's at for me. 

Next on my list for Charlotte Tilbury may be the Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk, as well as one of the Cheek to Chic blushes. I'm a huge cheek product junkie so perhaps when I'm feeling a bit rich I'll place another order. For now I'll happily parade around with the knowledge that my lip colour is called Bitch Perfect and that I look fabulous in it. Oh, the sacrifices I make for this blog...
