I know I’ve featured the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipsticks a while back when I first saw them, but I only had a couple of swatches back then and this lot just arrived so I thought I’d give them a proper outing.

I have to say, these are precision built lipsticks – no rounded nubby ends on these, they’re practically chiselled to a finish! The presentation makes you think they’re going to be hard, but actually on the lip, they’re butter soft and pliable. In terms of lip comfort, bearing in mind that they’re matte, I’m wearing one of the shades and there isn’t any dry feeling going on at all.. in fact, if I was doing a blindfold test, I’d say they were sheens from the texture.

Also from the look of the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipsticks, you think you’re going to get a whack of pigment. In the brighter colours you do, such as the first red, but there are other, much more wearable and subtle shades that won’t take you over the comfort zone threshold. So on the swatches, the shades from bottom to top are: Red Carpet Red, Lost Cherry, Bond Girl, Walk of Shame, Birkin Brown, Amazing Grace, Sexy Sienna, Very Victoria, Love Liberty and Glaston-berry. If you’re looking at the box picture, I’ve gone clockwise all the way around the box starting with Red Carpet Red.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick is definitely a contemporary matte – a long way of the crinkle-making, moisture sapping formulas of old. Mattes still aren’t for me, but these really have a luxury feel and look. They’re £23 each HERE.
