Makeup Review: Charlotte Tilbury's New Matte Revolution Lipstick In Glastonberry.

Recently I've fallen in love with Charlotte Tilbury's after she came so highly recommended from Zoella and her post which you can see here. Charlotte literally makes me want to buy every single product on her website just because of her passion and enthusiasm for her business. She writes the descriptions of the items herself and her eagerness and excitement really sells you the product.

As titled, I'm reviewing one of her lipsticks which is called Matte Revolution in Glastonberry. She explains that it creates the look of fuller, plumper lips and they are 'lit from within' thanks to the 3D glowing pigments that are mixed in. Available in 10 modern-matte shades, they are suitable for all skin tones and each one creates a different look depending on what you're going for.

The packaging is simple yet so cute, cased in a ridged gold container. The tip is so unusual as it is square and angled in such a way that you can apply it like you were using a lip brush, allowing you to apply it with precision. 'Triglycerides mixed with a perfect blend of oils and waxes' makes it easy to glide on that long-lasting colour, it feels like no work at all. Not only that, 'Lipstick Tree' and 'Orchid extract' helps soften, hydrate and care for your lips while creating the illusion of younger-looking, healthier lips.

I know the title says 'matte' but it doesn't leave your lips really dry and/or flat. Charlotte has really done well here as she has in some way made it so it's still creamy and simple while being shimmery due to the amazing 3D glowing pigments. When applying it, it doesn't drag on your lips and feels like a normal buttery lipstick until it dries.

 This swatch probably isn't one of the best you've seen but this is just an idea of what my chosen shade looks like. This is Glastonberry and it really is perfect for me! The shade creates a rock chick kinda look for me and I love it because I really do favour bold, dark shades over nudes when it comes to lipsticks and lip-glosses. Charlotte describes the shade as 'a sheer blackcurrent hue for sex kittens and rock 'n' rollers like Rihanna, Grace Jones and Rita Ora.' I'm not a sex kitten obviously but I do like the style of the rock chick that comes with it. I think it's just the ideal thing for autumn/winter or those special nights out when you want to go for a bold, gothic look. I'll be using it for a long time, that's for certain.

I do think Charlotte Tilbury is really onto something with this formula for her lipsticks. It's so flattering on the lips and so wearable for any occasion really. You can find her lipsticks and other incredible make-up products on her website. This lipstick can be pricey to some but if you're feeling daring at any point this autumn or winter, Charlotte Tilbury's stuff is definitely worth a look.

Have you tried this lipstick or any other of her products? What do you think?

  2. Ohh I've had my eyes on these, looks so nice! I never use gloss or even shimmery lipsticks (adventurous, yes) so a matte finish with hydration is just dreamy. I love the packaging too, art deco inspiration just gets me. x

    1. Me too. I always prefer bold shades over pinks and nudes. I'm loving the plum shade this season. Thanks for reading x

    2. Could not agree more. Pinks just don't do anything for me beside making me look even more pale. Don't even get me started on nudes. I am jealous of the girls which can rock them all but for me its strong colours all the way.
