Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipsticks.



I have been admiring the CT packaging for ages. I mean, who wouldn’t? The rose gold looks absolutely stunning and when you have the products in your hands they feel like the most luxurious makeup items ever. I had a rather big clear out recently and got rid of most of my lipsticks and most importantly: all my MAC lipsticks.. so I had to get some new ones. And that was the perfect excuse to browse Charlotte Tilbury.

As they are not the cheapest lipsticks I wanted to only buy my must have shades. A rich red, a dark red, a matte mid-toned nude and a very light nude. For the light nude shade, I already knew what I wanted. It had to be the Kim KW one, I mean for me she is kind of the inventor of the nude lip haha. I really adore the shade. It is the perfect classic nude and totally what you would expect. Unfortunately, the formula (KISSING formula, not the Matte Revolution) does not 100% agree with my lips and tends to get a little flaky after a few hours. I like to only use a bit of the lipstick and tap it in with my finger.. 

The second nude I got is Very Victoria. It is more of like a mid to dark toned nude and has a very matte finish. I love the formula much more than the Kim KW one and the colour is also gorgeous.. maybe a little too cool toned for me though but I can still get away with it. 

For the classic red, I went for Red Carpet Red and this is for sure my favourite of all of them. The colour is absolutely gorgeous and everything you look for in a classic Hollywood red. The formula feels amazing on my lips not too drying. It feels much better than my old favourite: Russian Red by MAC. And this one lasts equally as long.. I am in LOVE.

Last but not least is Glastonberry. I was looking for something like Diva by MAC. This one is more of a dark purple with a hint of red than a pure dark red but I like this even more. It looks amazing against my skin colour. Again the formula is a dream. I can't tell you much about the lasting power of this one as I haven't worn it too much yet.. We will see. 

These are all the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks I own so far. But I have to tell you a little secret.. I just did another order.. oh dear! The reason is that I was browsing twitter and saw someone talking about the famous Lipliner shade Pillowtalk being made into a lipstick and I was like.. OMG! This can't be true... So I went onto their website and yes indeed, they released Pillowtalk as lipstick exclusively for Valentines day. I know I am on a spending ban but hello.. it is a limited edition so I just had to, right? RIGHT?.. 

Which are your favourite CT lipstick shades or products in general? Next on my list is the Dolce Vita eyeshadow palette.. so stunning!

  2. I remember feeling like some of them were going to be too drying for my lips when I swatched them, but Red Carpet Red definitely looked and felt lovely on my hand! I also love Russian Red so now, naturally, I really want Red Carpet Red!

  10. I'm still yet to try any of the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks believe it or not. These shades look so dreamy though, they are all the exact type of shades I'd go for. Very Victoria might be my fave though!

  11. Red Carpet Red is probably my favourite lipstick ever! I don't wear it all too often but it's just perfect for special events, it really does feel like a classic Hollywood filmstar lipstick. Love your collection!

  12. So shameful, considering I'm a beauty junkie, but I don't own any CT lippies!! I need to step it up and pick out a few shades. Their nudes always interest me :)

  13. I am always in love with everything by CT! my very first purchase was Gastonberry and it is still my fav lipstick. the formula is creamy and soft and the shade is perfection to me. I also heard very good reviews on Very Victoria, so I guess you did a great selection. I wish to try the Magic Cream next, maybe I would need a small because buying the huge jar! XD
