I’m really not a lip liner kind of girl, but after reading about/seeing the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in “Pillowtalk”, I had to have it. While it’s not all that unique — color-wise — I’m finding that I’m enjoying the effects of layering on this product before a lipstick/lip gloss. Also, to be fair, this is the only lip liner own, lol.
I find that this particular shade is like a ‘your lips but better’ kind of color. It’s great to lip line with, but also to lightly shade your lips in before applying lip color. I don’t like to pair it with both a lipstick and lip gloss; it’s just one or the other. It’s not a product that really is needed, but the color is pretty and it’s really long-lasting. I find that when I use this over my lips on top of a good lip balm, the matte-ish effect is long-lasting and mimics a nice lip color without being sticky or noticeable.
I recommend this lip liner, but it’s not a necessity. All in all, in all regards to hyped up products, this is one of them, lol. If you want to give CT’s products, this can be a good start. I have to say that out of all the colors available, “Pillowtalk” is the best one.
