Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on the Natasha Denona Mini Biba Eyeshadow Palette. I went to Sephora hoping to pick up the Natasha Denona Face Palette in Light but they did not carry it in the store. I ended up seeing this palette and decided to pick it up because I liked the color story and I already own a couple of these mini palettes. Keep reading to hear my thoughts on this palette and to see swatches.

Hey Guys,
If you follow me on Instagram you know that recently announced that I am pregnant with my first child. Even though my blog and Instagram are primarily beauty and fashion related being pregnant has become a huge part of my day to day life. I have decided to add an occasional blog post related to my pregnancy and this is my first. I am currently 20 weeks pregnant and decided to put together a list of must haves that may help other moms-to-be. This post will be based around my personal must haves for the first and second trimester. I kept the list pretty short but these are the items that I highly recommend! Keep reading to hear more!

Review: Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Penelope Pink & Lip Cheat Liner in Love Trap


*This post contains affiliate links. That means if you click on my link and buy something, I may earn a small credit from the advertiser at no additional cost to you. Thank you for supporting Leopard Lace and Cheesecake!

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on some more Charlotte Tilbury products. I decided to try the K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in the shade Penelope Pink since I loved how it looks on _WithSarah who is a fellow beauty influencer. I decided to purchase as a lip kit and get a lip liner to pair with it. Keep reading to hear my thoughts on each!
Review: Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Penelope Pink & Lip Cheat Liner in Love Trap


Here is what is said about this product on the Charlotte Tilbury site:
"Darlings, get this fail-safe recipe for perfect lips! My K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Penelope Pink features ingredients for full-bodied, plumped-up lips. This nude beige lipstick has subtle pink undertones, making it the perfect everyday shade.

WHAT MAKES K.I.S.S.I.N.G LIPSTICK MAGIC:

  • Perfect, full, kissable lips really do grow on trees!
  • The Lipstick Tree protects your lips from UV damage & oxidative stress to leave them soft, soothed & hydrated.
  • Light-diffusing pigments gives your lips a multi-dimensional finish to leave them look full-bodied and luminous.
  • The blend of waxes glides over your lips for a rich, buildable color.
  • Ideal for an everyday nude in a hydrating formula."
On to my thoughts:
While I loved how the lipstick looks on Sarah I do not love how it looks on me. She does pair Penelope Pink with a different lip liner Iconic Nude. I didn't love that combo on me and prefer it with the Love Trap shade that I purchased. The formula is much more satin/glossy and less opaque than the Matte Revolution lipstick formula. It apply more sheer and kind of patchy. I am also not in love with how the nude color looks on me. This just goes to show you that depending on your complexion, lip shape, etc makeup can look completely different on different people. I will say that this lipstick is definitely hydrating. 


Here is what is said about this product on the Charlotte Tilbury site:
"Darlings, lip liner is every woman’s backstage, red carpet, secret weapon! My Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Love Trap is a ‘90s-inspired peachy-brown shade. This nourishing, velvety-rich formula is the key to creating fuller, wider, perfected lips.

WHAT MAKES LIP CHEAT LIP LINER MAGIC:

  • Perfect your lip shape!
  • Smoothes over texture for a seamless line, so you can resize and reshape for a fuller pout.
  • Lasts up to 6 hours with no smudging*
  • Waterproof formula
  • Transfer resistant formula
  • Ideal for perfectly defined, colour-rich lips."
On to my thoughts:
I really like this lip liner and it is on par with the rest of the lip cheat liners that I own. The color is a really nice warm brown nude shade on me.

Review: Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Penelope Pink & Lip Cheat Liner in Love Trap

Here are swatches of Penelope Pink and Love Trap:

You can save some money and purchase a K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick and Liner Kit that includes a lipstick and lip liner at a discount. 

Overall, I do not like the K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Penelope Pink enough to justify the price that I paid. If I got it at Sephora I probably would have returned it but it was too much of a hassle to return directly to Charlotte Tilbury. I prefer the Matte Revolution formula way more and wish that I got a nude shade in that instead. I do recommend the lip cheat liner in Love Trap and think its a nice basic neutral shade.
