Gimme That Colour Pop Oh Charlotte Tilbury With Your Beach Stick in Es Verda!

Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick Lip-to-Cheek Dewy Colour Pop in Es Verda

In the beauty world, hot summer months mean heaps of sunscreen, long-lasting and dewy, glowy makeup. Of course, if it tickles your fancy, you might want to add lots of bronzer and self-tanners too but as for me, I’ll be happy to stick to sunscreen and glowy makeup. Speaking of which, I discovered yet another gorgeous cream blush that is so richly pigmented, you’d think I was applying lipstick on my face.

I’ve only tried a few items from Charlotte Tilbury’s makeup line but so far, I’ve had great results with them. I’m so glad to add this to the list as well. When I swatched this on the back of my hand, I thought “WOAH. Look at that colour!“.

According to Charlotte Tilbury, the Beach Sticks offer a cheeky pop of colour for dewy, youthful lips and cheeks in an easy twist-up colour balm of glowing pigments. It’s practically summer glow in a stick and I couldn’t agree more. The one I have is in Es Verda, which is a bright cool-toned cherry red. It contains gold shimmer which isn’t offensive. It’s just the sort of lip colour I’d typically go for and as a cream blush, when used sparingly, it sheers out into a lovely sheer rosy hue.

The cream goes on slightly tacky but when it’s quickly blended out on the skin, it doesn’t look nor feel greasy. The lasting power for this on the cheeks is pretty impressive. I’ve had this on for many hours and there was nary any fading. As a “lipstick”, it doesn’t last that long and will need reapplication after drinks and/or meals. That’s not a problem for me as I do that anyway regardless of any lip product.

Here’s the Beach Stick multitasking on my cheeks and my lips

Usually when it comes to lip-cheek tints, I wouldn’t bother using them on my lips because they would either be too sheer or it would be gross to apply them on my cheeks and then bring the face makeup on my lips as well. In this case, I’m happy to use this as a lip colour as well simply because it looks fantastic on the lips. To do this, instead of swiping the Beach Stick directly on my face, I used my fingers to apply the product on my cheeks and lips.

Blush fiends who are also fans of Charlotte Tilbury, I wouldn’t give this one a miss at all. I’ve seen swatches of the rest of the Beach Sticks and they’re gorgeous (especially the shade in Las Salinas). Now comes the million dollar question: do I really need another Beach Stick? 😛

Charlottle Tilbury’s Beach Sticks retail at AU$55.00 each and comes in 5 shades. They are available for purchase on the Charlotte Tilbury Australia website.

What I like about it: The Es Verda is a beautiful shade and the quality of the cream blush top-notch. It’s long-lasting on the cheeks and goes on brightly on the lips unlike most lip-cheek combos I’ve tried.

What I do not like about it: Surprisingly? Nothing!

Have you tried any of Charlotte Tilbury’s Beach Sticks? When it comes to lip-cheek tints/duos, do you actually use them for both lips and cheeks or do you tend to favour just one?

    Looks like a stunning product! I have always Oooo and Ahhh’d over Charlotte Tilbery products, but sadly, out of my price range

      Sigh you’re not the only one. I have to wait a while before getting CT makeup as they’re really expensive. It’s crummy that they don’t have a physical counter for us to be able to swatch and try products out first before splashing all that money. Thankfully the ones I’ve gambled on yielded good results. If not, I’d be mighty pissed off! 😛

    This is such a cute cheek colour! I love how natural it looks on both the lips and the cheeks 🙂

      Me too! It’s the first time I actually prefer using this as a lippie because the colour’s so pigmented and beautiful. 🙂

    Beautiful! It looks so deep on the bullet and in your swatch, but it’s a perfect shade on your cheeks and lips. I still haven’t broken my piggy bank to try CT but I’m dying to.

      Do give CT a go. The products I’ve tried haven’t disappointed me so far. Their powders are beautiful. 🙂

    I love the charlotte tilbury makeup line there are certain products that I dislike and this is one of them. This js my opinion: This has too much slip. Not when you apply it but after. The colors are great but it wears off quickly and when I was in Malaysia, doesn’t last on the weather there. My highlighter powder (mary lou) on top made it weird too 🙁

    Just my own thoughts.

      I noticed that a number of people don’t like this too for the same reason you cited. Thankfully, this didn’t disappear on me; reckon it’s the dry weather that’s making it stay. Maybe I shouldn’t complain about it so much then. 😛
