My Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick Collection;

Thursday, 4 December 2014

Hello Lovelies;

The Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipsticks have become a bit of a Pokèmon like obession (gotta catch them all?) If you haven't heard of these lipsticks where have you been hiding? They've been all over the blogging community since they launched and get a lot of well deserve attention. I have 4 shades in my collection and I am eyeing up more. They are £23 each, but before you cast doubt let me tell you more about them.

Pictures & Swatches order (From bottom to top and left to right) - Bond Girl, Love Liberty, Red Carpet Red and Sexy Sienna.

The Matte Revolution lipsticks are the first 'hydrating' matte lipsticks - they also don't make your lips look 'flat,' and give them some dimension and shape. I love the ethos behind CT and her whole make up range. These are great lipstick for people who adore mattes but maybe find them a bit too drying.

I have 4 shades (Swatches in bottom picture from left to right) - Bond girl (A brown toned plum and the most natural of the shades), Love Liberty (A blue toned berry) Red Carpet Red (A blue toned red) and Sexy Sienna (A peachy pink). I actually love the darker shades in the range and find the lightest/brightest (Sexy Sienna) in the range to be the most drying on the lips compared to the bolder shades. These lipsticks are a dream to apply. I love Bond Girl as it's the most natural close to a lip colour in the range, but you can build it up to be the perfect autumn/winter shade. Love Liberty is the perfect shade if you want a bolder berry lipstick.

Can we take a minute to swoon over these lipsticks? They're so beautiful! What girl wouldn't love to pull out this rose gold lipstick for top ups? Yes, Sexy Sienna is squashed - I don't really know what happened there...I've already expressed my love for 'Red Carpet Red' as my perfect red. I cannot wear a red lip if it isn't matte, and a lot of mattes I've tried are too drying until this beauty popped up!

If you're in the market for a new matte lipstick I do highly recommend these. Honestly they've blown all the other matte lipsticks I've tried out the water - the most disappointing thing is that the swatches on the CT website are SO off! Really, they couldn't be less true to colour! The swatch you see above is true to colour with Bond girl and Love Liberty - Red Carpet Red is more blue toned and Sexy Sienna is a bit more pink than in the picture.

With Christmas drawing close there couldn't be a better time to pop one of these onto your wish list!
