The Olivia Palermo x Ciate London Satin Kiss Lipstick are a new limited edition collection of lipsticks that Ciate London collaborated on with American socialite, Olivia Palermo. Ciate’s Makeup Collection just launched recently and is still very much in its infancy stages but honestly, that hasn’t stopped the brand from introducing a steam of brand new products each season.
For Fall 2015, they teamed up with Olivia to create a gorgeous selection of warm, natural, nude shades for eyes and lips that was highly flattering for the season.
One of the things that jumped up at me when I originally saw the promotional images for the Olivia Palermo x Ciate London Makeup Collection was the gorgeous nude lip that Olivia was sporting. I think her whole makeup looking was very appealing to me as she had a warm, natural sultry eye with a pop of color on her cheeks and a delicate nude lip that brought it all together. Upon seeing those images I was instantly excited about seeing the lipsticks in person for myself. I feel like I don’t have enough great nude lipstick shades and when I do for ones I love I tend to hoard them away.
Why you might ask? Well, I just feel like a nude lip can prove difficult to pull off and finding that perfect shade to achieve the looks can sometimes prove difficult.
The Olivia Palermo x Ciate London Satin Kiss Lipstick brings together four gorgeous shades, three of which are incredibly pretty nudes.
Let’s take a look!
These are not only positively dreamy shades but they formula is outstanding as well!
First off and almost an important point for me is the packaging. These come housed in a textured black box with gold font. The box feels very Gucci to me with a prestigious, luxury look that we haven’t really seen from Ciate’s Makeup Collection before as many of their offerings have more of a cute vibe. The actually lipsticks come housed in a pure gold barrel with Ciate’s cute ribbon decorating the top. The lipsticks are embossed with the Ciate ribbon at the front and the back displays Olivia’s initials.
The formula is a super creamy, thick texture lipstick with an easy, smooth glide on lips that sets to a soft, creamy satin finish. I detected no fragrance or flavor in this formula for sensitive users. Although thicker and very creamy this formula has a nice weightless feel and gave lips a little light moisture through the five hour wear. They are formulated with hyaluronic acid so lips appear plumper, fuller, while retaining moisture. Color pay off is excellent on both shades I tried with a full opaque finish on a single application.

Olivia Palermo x Ciate London Satin Kiss Lipstick (Truffle)
I loved the shades. I tried Praline which is a dusky nud-ish pink and Truffle which which is a softer pinky nude. Both these shades go excellent with brown smoky eyes or nude, natural eyes with a winged liner!
These are a lipstick that deliver the whole package with gorgeous packaging, excellent wear, and an incredible formula!
