I just cannot resist telling you how much I LOVE my recent purchase of “Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre Luxe Colour Lasting Lip Lacquer in Red Vixen”, it’s quite a mouthful, literally 🙂

This Lip Gloss has helped take me from a Winter to a Spring look and it is most definitely getting me noticed, how fab is that at my age.

You can wear the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre Lip Gloss on it’s own directly applied to bare lips, or if you want to enhance your existing lipstick then you can add a coat of the lip gloss to add that touch of sparkle and drama.

Product:  Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre Luxe Colour Lasting Lip Lacquer
Shade:  Red Vixen
Purchased from:  Net-A-Porter.com
Price I paid:  £17 ($22 approx.)
My Rating: 10/10

My Product Overview

For me the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre Luxe Colour Lasting Lip Lacquer delivers the deep, rich and creamy, glossy, polished look that I want from a Lip Gloss.

My choice of the Red Vixen shade is very much in keeping with my passion for vibrant colours that tend to compliment my skin tone nicely.

But….. to be honest if you want to purchase the Red Vixen colour choice looking to create either a sophisticated, glamorous or fresh for Spring image then this shade will offer all of those for most skin tones.

The packaging is every the inch of Luxury that you would expect from Charlotte Tilbury with her makeup artist background, I feel that this product has been designed knowing that we all like a beautifully slim container that will fit nicely into our handbags what ever the occasion and lets face it we do like to show off our makeup products in the “rest room” whilst powdering our nose 😉

The Lip gloss applicator is just the right size, narrow in width and the optimum length for not getting into a mess whilst delivering the correct amount from the container.  My tip would be to remove the excess at the end of the applicator onto the edge of the container in order not to create too much “over load” on the lips.

If you take a look at Net a Porter and click on “Beauty – Charlotte Tilbury – Lip Lacquer in Red Vixen you will see a little video attached to the product, this will help with your application technique.

As directed by the video, I would outline your lip line starting at the “cupids bow” into the corners of the mouth and along the bottom lip.  once this is complete then fill in the rest of your lips.

A Little About Net-A-Porter.Com

Net-A-Porter is a designer online shopping website, they deliver to many destinations all over the world, I have used them to send presents to family in Australia, they offer free and beautifully stylish packaging with every purchase.

There service is incredibly professional and luxurious no matter how little you spend with them.  I love the Black Boxes with tissue inside and finished off with a gorgeous bow of Black and White hence my reason for choosing my presents from their site 🙂

Net-A-Porter Charlotte Tilbury

They have three delivery services to choose from:  Standard – usually within 3 – 5 working days but some times quite a speedy delivery, Nominated Day – again very accurate and Next Business day if you order before a certain time – I have never experienced any problems what so ever.

The word “Designer” can put some people off, as it often equates to “over-priced” but you will be amazed by the leap in quality you can obtain from just a small incremental cost, I don’t spend a fortune on any of my purchases and usually stick to the more commercialised brands such Michael Kors, J Crew and when I really push the boat out, McQueen.

They have an excellent beauty products range to choose from, in my opinion with beauty and makeup you get what you pay for and this adds up to better value for money in the long run.

Please drop me a comment below, I would love to help with any feedback or questions.

  1. Great review on Charlotte Tilbury lip gloss. I especially enjoyed your video on how to best apply it. I’ve never worn the shade of red as I’ve always chosen more neutral tones but we have the same coloring so maybe I should step out of my box and give it a try. I have a question though…how long does it last? Most lip glosses I use wear off pretty quickly and I have to keep re-applying.

    1. Hi Karen,

      Looking at your profile photo, I could most definitely see you wearing the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre in Red Vixen, you are clearly a lady of great taste and look very glam 🙂

      It’s more difficult to choose a lip shade and gloss than any other makeup product, not knowing what works with the rest of your makeup and skin tone etc… My idea of looking at makeup is to play around with different looks and colour combinations and sometimes I do like to look at current makeup trends.

      I do tend to keep to my favourites, it keeps life simple for me anyway, I like to use either my YSL Le Orange, Lip Glosses such as the Charlotte Tilbury and Estee Lauder Lip gloss mentioned in my Estee Lauder post, with it’s neutral tones.

      My colouring lends itself to either Nude shades or very striking colours, Pink tones tend to make me look washed out but then on another person, it is the right one for them.

      In answer to your question: Using today as my guide, I applied the Red Vixen Lip Gloss about 4 hours ago and it still looks great even after three hot drinks, ok, it doesn’t have the full impact of fresh application but you can still see it and I most definitely can feel it’s presence. It would most definitely last all evening on a night out.

      I hope that I have been of use to you and thank you for all your fab feedback, really do appreciate you taking the time.

      Have a great week 🙂



  2. At first I thought it would look to red but after seeing the photo and video, it actually looks really natural I also haven’t heard of the brand Charlotte Tilbury. Is that a european brand? I haven’t seen them here in the Us.
    I’ll definitely do some research about this brand now

    1. Hi Ellie,

      Thank you for your lovely comments, very much appreciated 🙂

      You sound like a lady that knows a thing or two about style and makeup.

      Completely agree, when looking online at makeup it can be deceiving, a block colour of any product be it lipstick or eye shadow can look very dense and overpowering that is my main reason behind my site, to help guide those feeling put off from trying something new and reliable because of how it looks in the packaging. It is always best to try a sample on your face first, for example: Lipstick and Gloss should always be tested on the lips and not on the back of your hand, the skin on your lips is much thinner and will tone most colours down.

      I would always advise to look at your skin tone and hair colour before selecting your colour palette or range.

      Charlotte Tilbury is a British Makeup Artist but her products can be shipped Internationally, I would like to thing so, take a look at Net-A-Porter.com or even take a look at the Charlotte Tilbury Official Website, I buy my Charlotte Tilbury from Net-a-porter and I have taken a look for you, they do ship to the US, they package everything beautifully.

      I hope that I have helped answer your questions, please let me know how you get on.

      All the best


    1. H Maria,

      Clearly a lady of great taste looking at your profile photo 🙂

      Thank you for your question and I can see why the confusion! All skincare and makeup companies have their own unique way of naming their products, it can lead to misunderstandings, obviously with my years of experience and training I can identify a product by the consistency and application method.

      The Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lacquer is indeed a Lip gloss but it has depth of colour to give it a glamorous feel with added staying power, you apply it in the same way as a Lip gloss also, my advice is that if you want a deeper colour would be to dab with a tissue between coats and to draw a line around the top and bottom lip.

      I hope that I have answered your question and please let me know how you get on with trying this product our or having a little test first.

      all the best


  3. It looks very pretty! It’s such a beautiful red color, and is seriously perfect on you! Are these products available world wide? Or only in certain countries? I would love to know if they are available in the United States!

    1. Hi Jessica,

      Thank you for getting in touch and for your lovely comments 🙂

      Net-A-Porter.com do deliver Internationally, with a one charge delivery service or look out for their offers, might be worth signing up with them to keep up to date with any offers they have coming up.

      I’ve had a look on Amazon too and noticed that they have Charlotte Tilbury in Stock albeit very limited.

      I will look into it for you, It would be great to see where you can purchase within the United States to help those such as yourself to purchase any products that I personally recommend.

      I do hope that I have been of use to you but if you are still struggling to make a purchase or to find out where stockists are for this product then please do not hesitate to leave a comment or contact me.

      Wishing you all the best Jessica.


  4. I was looking for a gift for my mom and seems this could be a great choice. I do like how this Charlotte Tilbury lip gloss looks on you – AMAZING! And I like also the online shop you described – their free stylish packaging and reasonable price range. Are you sure these are not fake products? I have read we have to be very careful when shopping online as many of cosmetic products are fake.

    1. Hi Arta,

      Lovely to hear from you and thank you so much for your great comments and compliments, really appreciate and cheered me up 🙂

      The Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre is a perfect gift for your Mom, hand on heart you can trust Net-A-Porter.com, there is nothing Fake about that company, I have used them for a number of years and they have never let me down, their customer care and profession service is second to none and trust me you will fall in love with the way they package everything so beautifully. I completely understand your lack of trust especially if you have had a bad experience in the past and let’s face it, it has happened to us all at some point.

      I have no doubt at all that you will be completely satisfied with Net-A-Porter and any Charlotte Tilbury product, please let me know what you think and how you get on with your gift buying, always great to hear from another point of view.

      Have a great week


  5. Wonderful review. I simply love the color and your demonstration. The brand is new to me but I will look for this on my next shopping spree. The price is comparable to many I have seen but this looks more silky in appearance. Thank you so much for this review. I am always on the hunt for new products.

    1. Thank you for your great comments and for taking the time to leave it 🙂

      Looking at your profile photo it is clear to see that you know your style and looking very glam, someone that knows a good makeup product when they see one.

      I agree the price is “comparable” to many others and I can honestly say it’s excellent value and long lasting with a shine that is not too over the top, some Lip Glosses can look at little extreme for my taste, a sophisticated look is more in keeping with a stylish finish.

      Have a great week and I hope to hear from you again.

  6. Being well over the age of 50, I would have never thought at my age, that I could wear a Red shade for a lip gloss.

    I think it’s a great idea to enhance my existing lipstick, which is a medium nude shade. Placing the red over top of mine would tame the red down a little while adding shine to my lips.

    I wonder if this shade would be a good match for my olive skin tone and brown hair? I think it would be worth the try, I could use a change.

    Thank you.

    1. Hi Patsy,

      Thank you for all your positive comments 🙂

      I have to say that by looking at your profile photo that I would not put you in the over 50 age bracket and just goes to show that 50 is the new 30.

      Red will most definitely suit you with your skin tone and hair colour, you have a warm look, I would tend to go with Orange Red but to be honest your colouring can take a more raspberry red, will look very sophisticated on you.

      A great idea of yours to wear the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre in Red Vixen with a nude shade, a good look for day wear.

      I do like to stand out though, why not hey, we deserve to 🙂

      Enjoy the rest of your week and great to connect with you Patsy.
