The Charlotte Tilbury Superstar Lipsticks have a finish similar to a gloss. Their texture is light and subtle yet their characteristics remain loyal to an 'everyday' tube of lipstick. If I had to describe this product in just one sentence then I could only say that it is the aftermath of a steamy affair between a lipgloss and lipstick.
It is a product that I would say compliments the best of both worlds. For a lipgloss-lover, they give the lips that desired, high-shine, mirrored-like finish without a sticky consistency. For those of us who don't like the texture of a gloss, however, and just want a comfortable, buttery formula, I can confirm that the Superstar Lipsticks by Charlotte Tilbury deliver the finish of a gloss with the texture of a lipstick. It is quite bizarre.
For me, my Superstar Lipstick in the shade Pillow Talk is the perfect partner for Autumn and Winter weather. With hyaluronic acid, a blend of superior waxes, polymers and emollient oil, this lipstick effortlessly glides over the lips delivering a rich colouring in just one swipe. My dry lips no longer feel like shrivelled up prunes after applying this product. They feel plump, slippery but not sticky or tacky. In the cold, brisk Autumn weather my hair doesn't stick to my lips either, which is one of the worst things about wearing a lipgloss in my opinion! I don't know what it is about a lipgloss but whenever I have worn one in the past my hair has always just clung to my lips and it is arguably quite horrendous.
With a balm-like formula, it can't be a surprise when I say that this is not a long-wearing lip product. You must be prepared to reapply this lipstick throughout your typical day or at least apply a lip liner prior to ensure a more complimenting appearance as your lipstick begins to wear off. I suppose one of the main questions that no doubt you all want to hear the answer too, is whether or not I would say that the Superstar Lipsticks are worth their high-profile claim?
To be honest with you, I would have to say that I do enjoy wearing this product - for the reason being that it gives my lips a gloss-like finish with the consistency of my preferred style of lip product; the lipstick. Although, I would also have to tell you that I wouldn't repurchase one of these in the future for the reason being that I don't think it offers an ultimate nor unique selling point.
