The Matte Revolution

Will Charlotte Tilbury ever release a product I don’t like? It seems not. 

Her latest launch, Matte Revolution, didn’t disappoint. A collection of luminous modern-matte long-lasting lipsticks enriched with new generation 3D glowing pigments. The idea is that the lips look lit from within as well as wider and fuller. 

Matte doesn’t have to be dry and flat, Charlotte has somehow made matte lipsticks that are still creamy, easy to wear and luminous. The formula doesn’t drag at the lips because it’s enriched with Lipstick Tree (yes, that’s a real thing) and Orchid extract. It feels like velvet on the lips and you can feel the hydration. The bullet isn’t your usual lipstick shape, it’s more square and angled making application even easier, especially at the corners. 

The shades partner up with her 10 iconic makeup looks and some are named after the glamorous ladies she’s made up including Sexy Sienna (worn in this video) and Very Victoria. Lost Cherry is a personal favourite (worn in the photo above). 

The lipsticks are £23, available on counter or online and there are 10 shades available. Swatches here.
