This lipstick is a beautiful, beautiful color on the lips. It's the MLBB shade I've been searching for. Perfect nudey-pink on my cool-toned skin, but...it is very drying. Not an uncomfortable drying, but more of a sneaky drying. It feels smooth and good on the lips at first, but then an hour later it it sinks into the grooves of your lip lines, and it ain't pretty. If you want to wear this, you need to exfoliate and balm up.
In addition to that, the packaging is hot garbage. When applying, the lipstick wobbles around in the tube, like the base is loose. This lipstick is $34 dollars and the packaging quality is cheap and weak, like a dollar store lipstick. Frankly, I'm insulted. I'm sure I got an anomaly, but for $34 all those lipsticks should be perfect. I've bought hundreds of high end and drugstore lipsticks and I've only encountered this problem with some drugstore lipsticks and one Chanel lipstick. Consequently, that was the last Chanel lipstick I ever bought, or will ever buy.
Since Charlotte Tilbury is too fancy to be sold at any store in my state, I had to order online from Sephora, and now if I want to return it, I have to drive a considerable distance.
