Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipsticks- First Impression

IMG_1189

Charlotte Tilbury is a well known British makeup artist. She is known to work on celebrities and supermodels like Kate Moss and Victoria Beckham. Her makeup collection launched in the US last fall. The only item I have from her collection so far is the Filmstar Bronze & Glow (which I love). I was very upset when her matte lipsticks didn’t launch in the US. After patiently waiting, these lipsticks finally became available! They are only available for a couple more weeks on her website. It took me a couple of days to decide which ones to buy because I really wanted all of them. I ended up purchasing Red Carpet Red and Lost Cherry. She claims these lipsticks can create a fuller looking lip with a “long-lasting, buildable, and hydrating formula.” They are available for $32.

The rose gold packaging is simple yet elegant. I also love how the shape of the lipstick is square. It actually made it a lot easier to apply. The lipsticks are very smooth, creamy, and easy to apply. You can wear these with a light layer as a stain or you can build it up for a richer color.

Lost Cherry

IMG_1216This one is definitely the brightest of the bunch (perfect for spring and summer). It’s described as a “pastel fuchsia.”

Red Carpet Red

IMG_1188This is your typical Hollywood red carpet color. It’s described as a “true ruby red.”

The formula of these lipsticks remind me of the NARS Audacious except the NARS are a lot more pigmented. However, I think these lipsticks were meant be buildable. I think I prefer NARS Audacious lipsticks. I haven’t worn these for over 2 hours so I can’t give you a full review. I don’t want to say I’m disappointed in these lipsticks but I’m not amazed by any means. I prefer more of a matte finish and these feel like a satin/matte. If you love creamy somewhat matte lipsticks then I would pick one of these up! Overall, I am happy I made the purchase. I’m thinking about purchasing Love Liberty. We’ll see how they wear for a full day soon!
