Charlotte is calling this her researched-powered skin and lip innovation. It include what the brand are terming a breakthrough peptide which re-texturises the lips.

What is Charlotte Tilbury Happikiss?

This new lip product has been designed to tackle the daily stress that is put on the elastin in our lips from their constant movement, whilst giving a gorgeous hit of shiny colour. It combines the action of a Hyaluronic infusion lip mask and plump-effect lipstick gloss balm.

My Review

The texture of the Charlotte Tilbury Hyaluronic Happikiss is pretty special. The sensation is that of a care product rather than a colour product. It really does instantly smooth the surface of the lips and gives a lovely look of fullness.

It doesn’t feel like a sticky gloss. Charlotte calls it a fondue-like texture, and it has a lovely melting action as it is applied and looks like a varnish.

It acts like a hydration treatment mask for the lips and it instantly relieves any feeling of dryness and just smooths everything out. I have been testing these for about a week and it think it is starting to have a long lasting effect on the texture of my lips.

I am interested to see how my lips look after 28 days, seeing as tests show that users saw an increase of volume by 169%! That is some claim!!

The delivery system is a little different and I think some may struggle with it as it’s clicky system, and once you have twisted it up, you can’t twist it back. Charlotte says that one twist is one dose, so you will have to make sure you remember that! The tubes get a little bit messy if you twist up too much, so be warned.

I think that Crystal Happikiss is my favourite because it’s super pretty and so easy to apply and wear. I think it is Charlotte’s too, as it was the one she demonstrated on the zoom press launch. It’s so easy to wear.

I’m also a fan of the two limited editions, Happilove and Happicoral.
