If you know me by now, it’s safe to say that I have a slight obsession with all things rose gold. This definitely applies to the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipsticks- their packaging is absolutely to die for, which inevitably means that the product itself is good on its own. There’s something very classic about having one luxurious tube of lipstick in your handbag. While stocking up on the product itself isn’t exactly budget friendly, I think it’s nice to treat yourself once in a while. (I blame Parks & Rec for making me say this too often than I should). In regards to aesthetic, I think Charlotte Tilbury checks off all the boxes- how can something so sleek and stunning not look good on anyone’s dressing table?!
With Charlotte Tilbury being based in the UK, I didn’t expect the package to arrive quickly, so opening up the box was a nice treat.
The package says: “It’s a modern-matte illusion: lips appear fuller, wider, & lit from within. A new cashmere-cream texture with a soft-matte finish, enriched with papaya and orchid to hydrate, with glowing pigments for full volume lips.”
I ordered the deep purple/red/oxblood/berry shade (however you want to call it). Of course, this purchase was inspired in part by the beautiful beauty and lifestyle vlogger, Zoella (Zoë Sugg) who rocks Glastonberry on the regular. Although it is a bit of a daring shade to pull off on a daily basis, I think the color is definitely a lovely staple for an autumn/winter makeup look.
FOR FULLER, WIDER LIPS
THAT LOOK LIT FROM WITHIN
Create the illusion of fuller, wider lips with my Matte Revolution – for lips that look lit from within. It’s a trick I use all the time on photo shoots, using lighting trickery, pigments and powders, and have been working for years to re-create this effect in the slick of 1 lipstick. Now everyone can create this full, matte lip effect in a long-lasting, buildable, hydrating formula – it’s the matte lipstick of the future!
Exclusively enriched with Lipstick Tree extract which protects lips and is a natural anti-oxidant, and Orchid Extract which soothes and hydrates for a soft, buildable cashmere finish. Available in 10 modern-matte shades for all skin tones – 1 for each of my signature looks. Update your look – who will you be..?!
