Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Super Cindy: Review & Swatches

8:37:00 PM


I love Charlotte Tilbury's Matte Revolution Lipsticks. I've talked about them here and here. I thought Super Cindy would be the shade for me, as it was the most nude of the bunch. It has the same retail of $32 as the other Matte Revolution Lipsticks as well as the same lovely formula. It's my favorite matte formula because it's not super drying. I already reviewed the formula so I won't talk about that here, just about the color and swatches.

Per Charlotte Tilbury's Website:

Darlings, I always say lipstick empowers confidence – it’s happiness in a tube! My beautiful NEW HOT LIPS collection has been created in collaboration with 12 incredible, brilliant, hypnotizing women for an incredible charity: Women for Women International! Featuring my revolutionary, iconic square-angled tip that is designed to mimic a lip brush, as well as my CEW award-winning formula enriched with Orchid Extract, and voluminizing 3D pigments for cashmere-soft lips that look lit from within. Cindy is a timeless iconic beauty. This barely-there taupey nude completely embodies her fresh-faced all-American style and harks back to the gorgeous nudes of the nineties that feel so relevant today. The perfect addition to the classic SOPHISTICATE look!








  • $2 from each lipstick sold will be donated to Women for Women International in the first two months of sales
  • Using lighting trickery, pigments and powders is a trick I use all the time on photo shoots, and have been working for years to re-create this effect in the slick of one lipstick
  • Antioxidant Lipstick Tree and soothing orchid extracts soften, protect and hydrate for healthier, younger-looking lips
  • 3D glowing pigments create the illusion of lit-from-within lips that appear wider and fuller
  • Revolutionary, square, angled tip mimics the shape of a lip brush for precision application
  • A perfect blend of oils, triglycerides and waxes glide on for buildable, long-lasting colour 
  • Ideal for a buildable and long-lasting, cashmere-soft matte finish

    Super Cindy is described as a barely-there taupey nude. I don't really agree with that. It's a medium warm peachy nude with a pretty strong pink feel. There's a touch of shimmer to it, but that's usually true of this formula. It's not shimmery on the lips at all. This feels less like a nude and more of a bright pink peach nude. I was expecting 90s brown and was thinking it would be similar to Very Victoria but warmer. It doesn't feel 90s brown to me. I used a lot of 90s browns in the 90s and this is less brown. I don't feel there's any taupey part to it. 

    You can see Charlotte's product photo below(taken from charlottetilbury.com) and it looks warm taupey nude. It really turns more pink peach when worn. You can see the tone difference in my swatches versus this photo. 
    Beyond the color not being what I expected nor matching it's description well, it's a pretty creamy midtone warm peachy pink nude. The pink and peach take over the nude so it feels like more of a colorful shade than a basic nude. Some will love it, some will not. I prefer Very Victoria to this. The formula is fabulous as always.
