There’s a new addition to the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless family, and trust when I say you are going to be immediately obsessed. The already iconic product lineup currently consists of the skin perfecting essentials Airbrush Flawless Foundation ($62), Airbrush Flawless Setting Powder ($60), Airbrush Flawless Brightening Powder ($60), and Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray ($48).
Launching today exclusively on the new Charlotte Tilbury App (and on charlottetilbury.com June 15) comes a buzzy new addition to the collection: Airbrush Flawless Lip Blur ($44).
I have secretly been test-driving this creamy liquid formula, rocking this luxe new lipstick innovation for a week, and it was love-at-first-wear. Lipstick is, without question, my desert island beauty item—simply stated, it completes me. I am already a stan of the existing Tilbury lipsticks and this one has already moved into the pole position as my choice formula. Here’s what makes it so amazing.
1. The Texture & Finish
This lip colour is unlike any other liquid lipstick you’ve tried—it feels creamy, buttery and featherlight on your lips. Never too matte, never drying, never chalky. Pumped with hyaluronic acid it moisturizes and plumps up lips to pillowy perfection. It delivers a soft, silky airbrushed finish which is synonymous with the Airbrush Flawless line.
2. The Versatility
What’s so beautiful about Airbrush Flawless Lip Blur is how you can tailor the way you wear it depending on your mood. If you want a soft, imperfect effect, slick a light layer on lips then use your fingers to tap, blend and blur it. For a bolder lip, line your lips in a complimentary shade and apply in layers until you reached your desired intensity.
3. The Endurance
This lippy is seriously built to last. Typically, I only needed to reapply once a day to re-saturate colour. It stayed fresh throughout multiple tea breaks, Zoom calls, five-kilometer walks, lunches and dinners including pizza, and sushi date nights. It didn’t smudge and barely transferred on to cups or paper straws. The staying power makes it a perfect wedding lipstick choice (I’m talking to you brides, bridesmaids, and guests!).
4. The Application
I’m all about divine little details and the AirBrush Flawless Lip Blur’s fine-tip diamond applicator is a star of the show. It allows you to apply colour as precisely as you would using a lip brush. It also eliminates the need for a lip pencil—I love a streamlined beauty regime.
5. The Shade Range
There are eight colours to love, and of course your favourites are part of the mix. The complete range includes (pictured above, left to right): Ruby Blur, Flame Blur, Pillow Talk Blur, Nude Blur, Walk of No Shame Blur, Honey Blur, Pillow Talk Medium Blur, Rose Blur. As a firm scarlet supporter, I totally fell for Ruby Blur. It is a stunning red that suits all skin tones and delivers a feel of vintage Hollywood glam with just one swipe—perfection!
