Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Liquid Lips lipstick, Dhs143

Direct from Charlotte Tilbury's new Hollywood collection, the Liquid Lips line are the perfect combination of gloss and matte. The wand applicator is used as a lipgloss but the finish is a matt-like lipstick effect. It's perfect for summer days by the pool.
