Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in Glaston-berry

3:36 pm

Hi lovelies!

I never rave about lipstick as I am allergic to most lip products and so I have limited options to choose from. And if you know me then you'll know that I always favour well-defined eyes over prominent lips. Regardless of all that, I have been craving the bold burgundy/berry lip recently and wanted to invest in a good lipstick that will suit me. After some speculation as to which lipstick to try and crossing off some brands off my list, I went ahead and tried Charlotte Tilbury's Matte Revolution lipstick in Glaston-berry.. Wow. That's all I can say. I am in love. This may be one of the few lipsticks that I am in fact not allergic to. But that's not why I am complimenting the lipstick so much. The product itself is amazing through and through. 
It has a square angled tip for more precise application

For starters, the application is great. It glides on seamlessly and coverage is great. It is very pigmented indeed. It is matte but does not look 'dry' on the lips and neither does it dehydrate the lips. It contains 'Lipstick Tree extract' - a natural antioxidant to protect the lips, and orchid extract to soothe and hydrate the lips. The lipstick is said to have '3D glowing pigments' to create the illusion of fuller lips. Staying power is amazing - I had it on for 8 hours before I took it off, so I'm certain it would've lasted longer if I had kept it on. I went for dinner and coffee too, and it still lasted through that! The intensity of the colour slightly fades throughout the day (as expected with any lip product) but overall coverage is brilliant. I was very impressed; there was no need to reapply throughout the day. It's a dark burgundy colour but can look more 'plum' and berry in certain lights (on my lips). 

This is what it looks like on me!
The lipstick retails at £23 and can be purchased here. I bought it from Selfridges though. Yes it is pricey compared to many brands (e.g. MAC) but you get what you pay for. Lipsticks last a long time anyway so it's really worth investing in a product you'll love and use for ages. For me anyway, the fact that it suited my lips and didn't cause irritation was a major reason that I bought this. If you also have sensitive lips then I recommend you try out a few different brands, particularly those that pay special attention to retaining the lip's moisture. People often say to me to check which ingredients I may be allergic to but, are you kidding me? Have you seen the list of nonsense names on the ingredients list? It's never ending! How would I possibly know what is causing my lips to react? Sigh. It's just a case of trial and error (and money wasted in the process). That is why I basically never buy lipstick because I just end up wasting my money and giving it away. 

Final conclusions! Would I buy this product again? Oh hell yes!! I am not disappointed at all and this lipstick has convinced me to try other CT products too (if any of you have tried her mascara or blusher, please let me know)! These lipsticks come in 10 beautiful shades, and I am looking forward to trying more soon.

This colour is perfect for this time of year (yay for autumn!) and I'm so excited to use it! You can try various looks with it. For evening wear, I am going to try a bold intense lip with just mascara and a thin layer of black top liner on the eyes, and soft rose blusher. For daytime, I'll do less application so I get lighter coverage with more prominent blusher on the cheeks and coloured eyeliner (depending on my outfit). 

Have you tried CT products before? What's your favourite lipstick brand?

Lots of berry love,

  11. What a cool story!! I am so sorry about your lip allergy, I guess I'd never thought that people could be allergic to lipstick, but obviously this makes sense now.
