I've always read articles about how powerful a red lipstick was or how women have a particular outfit that makes them feel comfortable. Both items hold the idea that something you wear can give you confidence and make you present the best version of yourself. 

I never felt this way about anything in my fashion or beauty wardrobe until one lipstick fell into my lap. Charlotte Tilbury's "Bitch Perfect" was a color I was always intrigued by but more importantly, the name caught my eye.

A weird fact about me is that I love the word "bitch". It's probably one of my favorite words ever. It can definitely have a bad connotation but I truly love to use it in a positive, empowering way. Bitch is just another word for powerful or standing up for yourself. Bitch isn't bad... which is why I love the lipstick name "Bitch Perfect."

My Power Lip

Bitch Perfect is one of Charlotte Tilbury's more popular shades and it was definitely the most talked-about before Pillowtalk came along. It's also the first shade I ever purchased and that's why it's my power lipstick.

This lippie is a peach toned nude that has a traditional satin cream finish. The lipstick applies like a dream and leaves the most beautiful peachy pink color behind. Before trying this lipstick, I don't know if I've ever felt this way about a lipstick.

It matches every beauty look, can be a casual or more dressed up lip, and looks good on a variety of skin tones. After a few wears, this quickly became my favorite lipstick and it became the lipstick I wore when I wanted to feel good about myself.

I almost started to think of it as a lucky lipstick. I wore it to every big day at work, every interview I went on, and whenever I just needed to feel good about myself. It made me happy, feel confident, and I always felt better whenever I applied it. I think it's a combination of the name but also how perfect it looks on me! It's not too pink, not too peach or too nude -- it's utterly perfect.

Bitch Perfect is still my power lipstick to this day but I definitely switch it up with Charlotte Tilbury's "Pillowtalk" because that is the most universally flattering shade, although it does tend to lean a little more brown nude than pink so sometimes I reserve it strictly for the cooler months. However, despite everything, Charlotte Tilbury produces my favorite lipsticks, my power lipsticks and I can't wait to continue to find new shades that make me feel powerful and confident!
