This has been one of those products that I’ve always wanted to try but always held back because of the price, so after working loads of overtime a few weeks back I thought I’d reward myself and splurge out on a Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in the shade ‘Bond Girl’.
Now unfortunately I can’t go out and purchase CT products so I ordered this online. I was rather impressed with the presentation of my parcel as it came in her branded purple tissue paper with the most beautiful shipping reciept I think I’ve ever opened, a gold embossed lettered envelope.
While we are on the topic of packaging which I do get all obsessive over can you blame me right? is how CT just completely smashes it by having rose gold casing with ridged detail. It is by far the most prettiest lipstick in my collection along with my Kiko Intensely Lavish lipstick. What makes this different to other lipsticks though is the shape of the bullet as it has a flat top instead of a point, my first thought was how will this work? and without a struggle it does. The texture of this is really smooth and doesn’t pull on my lips when I apply. If I rub my lips together the colour blends well on both lips without clinging to dry patches although I’d always recommend you prep your lips before any matte lipstick so make sure you have a smooth base. The colour has easily become a favourite of mine as it’s a reddish brown which is a not in your face kind of red so it’s great for any occasion and everyday, the pigmentation is strong as expected with just two buildable coats and so long lasting with possibly one touch up depending how long you’ve worn this.
I am very happy that I did finally buy this as it’s become a firm favourite which I will/have been wearing this A/W. It is on the pricey side at £23 but it is worth it and nice to own at least one luxury lippy. Overall I am impressed with CT products and already have my eyes on some more to splurge on.
What’s your favourite lipstick?
