Charlotte Tilbury's Liv it Up: My Favourite Lipstick Shade for Spring

A recent makeup look featuring Charlotte Tilbury's Matte Revolution Lipstick in Liv It Up.

I adore bright pink and plum lipstick shades. But this spring, I've developed a love for light pink and nude lipsticks. Some do wash me out—but the right ones are delicious.

I introduced a friend to the wonders of Charlotte Tilbury a couple of weeks ago, and of course, I couldn't walk away from the counter without a treasure of my own. I tried a lipstick shade I normally wouldn't gravitate toward—and I love it.

How I feel about Charlotty Tilbury's Liv It Up.

Liv It Up is part of Charlotte Tilbury's Hot Lips collection, a range of 12 lipstick shades inspired by celebrities. It's a light, neutral pink in her Matte Revolution formula. I presume it's inspired by Liv Tyler.

If you haven't tried any of Charlotte Tilbury's lipsticks, you need to. They're my favourite formulas ever. Seriously, I have 13 of them. The K.I.S.S.I.N.G. lipsticks are softly shiny and creamy, and the Matte Revolution lipsticks are matte without being TOO matte, and not at all drying. Honestly, I have a hard time wearing anything else. They're that comfortable, and that gorgeous.

KMS Color Vitality Shampoo and Conditioner: Review

I used to have incredibly soft, healthy, smooth hair. Even with heat styling. Then I tried colouring, and for the low price of HUNDREDS of dollars, I got blonde highlights and dry, damaged, yucky hair. WAY uncool. Even with oils and damage remedies, my hair still isn't in fantastic shape. So when Faulhaber Communications reached out to me about KMS Start. Style. Finish., I thought, "Why not?" My current routine of Big Sexy Hair isn't doing much for me—not even volume! Phooey.

I received two pieces from the Color Vitality line—the shampoo and conditioner. They're designed to protect colour-treated hair, restoring radiance and making your dye job last up to three times longer. The shampoo is clear, and the conditioner has a light purple tint, which (I believe) helps slightly with toning my blonde hair. I've used both of these products three to four times over the last week, and I can report that I'm very pleased. My hair feels lighter and softer, and on day one post-shampoo, my colour definitely looks brighter and less brassy. Note that I haven't touched up my colour in forever, so I can't say whether these products really triple the life of a dye job. I can say, though, that I'm definitely going to keep using these.

I haven't tried anything else from the KMS Color Vitality line, but based on the shampoo and conditioner, I'm interested.  KMS products are available at select salons, so I'll need to do some investigative work!
