Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipsticks


I feel like I need to start this review by saying that you need these lipsticks in your life. Everyone needs them in their life. Everyone. They're that good. I consider myself somewhat of a lipstick connoisseur and I think these bad boys might just be my favorite formulation of all time. 

L to R: Love Liberty, Very Victoria, Bond Girl
The packaging on the Matte Revolution Lipsticks, like all Charlotte Tilbury products, is gorgeous. I find that the squared off shape of the bullet makes them slightly more tricky to apply than a traditional shape, but it's nothing too difficult. And it's well worth the slight extra effort. 

L to R: Love Liberty, Very Victoria, Bond Girl
The texture of these is very light and—unlike most matte formulas—they are not drying in the slightest. I find all three shades that I picked up to be some of the most comfortable lipsticks I've ever worn. They don't last exceptionally long (I reapplied every 4 hours or so, which is typical for me). I find that there is often a trade-off with matte lipsticks: the ones that are the most drying or tight feeling on the lips usually have the best lasting power. Since I don't mind occasionally touching up my lipstick, I'd take the more comfortable formula any day of the week. 

Very Victoria
Very Victoria is the shade that I had the most doubts about. I've always had difficulty finding nude shades that suit me, and given that I couldn't swatch this in person before purchasing, it was a bit of a gamble. I'm thrilled that I got Very Victoria, though, as it might just be my favorite of the three! It is a beautiful shade that adds enough color that I don't look sickly. It's warm without being too warm (which would not suit my skin tone and color). It is truly my perfect nude and it looks stunning with just about any lip gloss, if you want to get away from a matte look.

Bond Girl
Bond Girl is described as a 'chic natural berry' shade on Charlotte Tilbury's website. I suppose it does have an ever so slight hint of berry to it, but I really see a mid-toned browny pink (with a hint of peach?) when I wear this. It's a fantastic color to wear on days where you need to look polished and professional.

Love Liberty
Love Liberty is supposedly a 'wild-rose flush', but this is the shade that I see more berry in, rather than Bond Girl. It is the perfect berry shade for year round. It's not overly vampy, so it works during the day time and in the summer months, but it does add a bit of a statement to your makeup look. And I love that although it is a cool shade, it doesn't end up pulling fuchsia on me, which many lipsticks do.

The Matte Revolution Lipsticks were available on the US version of CharlotteTilbury.com for a limited time during the month of April, but they will be back (presumably available at all retailers that stock CT products) in September. If you live elsewhere in the world, you can get your hands on these lipsticks now. And I highly, highly recommend that you do. 

Have you picked up any of the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipsticks? Which shades did you get? I think I want something peachy or coraly, so Amazing Grace or Sexy Sienna might be next for me.
