I love matte lipsticks. They look very sophisticated and are great worn with an evening dress or with jeans and trainers. Such versatility suits me as I don’t have to think too much about my make-up look.
In my previous job my lovely colleagues gave me a Charlotte Tilbury case with lots of cosmetics. I’d been watching quite a few make-up tutorials and got obsessed with Charlotte Tilbury. So I was very pleased to try out some of the CT product that came in the case.
Matte Revolution Red Carpet Red was the first Charlotte Tilbury lipstick I tried. I instantly fell in love. Having been a huge fan of the Dior matte collection, there weren’t many makes that could seriously impress me. I love wearing bold colours and I love them matte. Whilst I use a lot of highlighter and a sparkling primer on my face, I dislike a shiny lip. It just doesn’t suit me. Another reason for my obsession with the matte lip colours is that they give me a bit of an age. I look really young and this way people at least take me seriously and don’t ID me everywhere I go.
I am not a particularly steady and careful person. I am also very bad with bright colours whether it’s a lipstick, nail polish or an eyeliner. To make the application of such a deep and prominent shade easy, I’ve got Charlotte Tilbury’s Lip Cheat. I think you need to better define the lip line. The lipstick itself has a very nice square shape helping to form your upper lip and drawing a nice semi-circle on the bottom lip. This truly red colour is very long-lasting and doesn’t get into the crinkles of the top and bottom lip. Even after a long and tiring day at work it looks as great as if just applied.
My next purchase was the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution English Beauty which is more of a nude shade. I’d never ever worn a nude lip. I was a bit scared although nude shades were extremely popular and everyone was sharing how good and versatile nudes were. Let me tell you, this nude colour is incredible. The quick and easy application process is not the only great thing about this product. The lipstick itself shapes and contours your lip after the application so you can save up on buying a lip liner. I use it on day to day as it looks casual but sophisticated at the same time.
CT Matte Revolution lipsticks soften and hydrate your lips so there won’t be any uncomfortable dryness. You won’t even feel that you are wearing any lipstick. They’ve also added 3D glowing pigments into the formula to make the illusion of a fuller and bigger lip, lit from within.
I absolutely adore these two shaded, however, I know there are other super popular shades like Pillow Talk or Bond Girl.
