Charlotte Tilbury's Matte Revolution


I love matte lipstick, I think by now you’ll all know this. It lasts a long time and is a lot less fuss to apply than other formulas. Recently, I got my hands on two of the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipsticks in the shades Glastonberry* & Bond Girl* and let me just say, these lipsticks are game changers.

Glastonberry is a beautiful blackcurrant hue which I adore. It’s great for the colder months but also by anyone who wants to pack a punch. It’s eye grabbing, one of my favourite shades to wear - I also love the play on words of Glastonbury. Bond Girl is a dark neutral tone, very Kylie Jenner-esque. This is a very sophisticated shade and if you’re just popping out but have minimal makeup on a swipe of this instantly creates a pulled together look.

The pigmentation of these lipsticks is amazing. One swipe is enough to create a bold lip without having to layer the product - although you can dab the colour for a lighter effect. The packing is divine - I don’t think we need to delve into it too much, it’s rose gold after all. The best thing about these lipsticks though is the formulation. Yes they are matte, but they aren’t the kind of matte that drys out your lips or makes them look dull and flat. These are enriched with Orchid extract to hydrate and protect the lips, 3D pigments which prevent your lips looking flat but rather more full and triglycerides to create a long lasting colour. The shape of the bullet is also very helpful, at first I was put off as I thought it would make application hard but intact it makes it a lot easier. The straight edges make it easy to trace around the edges of the lips before filling it in with colour rather than having to use a lip pencil or a lip brush. They are slightly pricey at £23 a piece but I would say they’re worth every penny.
