Today, I have something extremely exciting to share with you all. I have been in awe of Charlotte Tilbury and her make up range since in launched lasted year. At the beginning of the month the incredible lady with her rose gold packaged goods made there way to the Selfridges in Manchester and I knew I had to pay it a visit.
My eyes were hooked on her latest release. The new Matte Revolution Lipsticks
and I came away with the shade Birkin Brown.
is a nice deep brown lipstick, perfect if you are looking for that nineties inspired lip that is on trend at the moment.
It is a shade that I feel will suit a variety of skin tones as you can either apply a light layer or build it up to a strong deep brown shade which is how I like to wear it. It is perfect to wear this time of year as it looks incredible with winter knitwear!
One of the striking things about this lipstick range is the bullet. It as a rectangle nib which makes the application easier and also great for make up artists who need to use a lip brush. I found it really easy to use and was able to get in to the corners of my lips comfortably.
calls this range a 'modern matte' as they are not drying and uncomfortable, the way traditional matte lipsticks are. They are velvet on the lips and leave your lips feeling soft yet have the lasting power and pigmentation of a matte lipstick.
Mind boggling right? The lipsticks contain Papaya and Orchid extract to help keep your lips hydrated and I have to say it does that effortlessly. I can wear this lipstick all day without feeling like I have it on and it becoming uncomfortable.
The matte revolution lipsticks are the creme de la creme of lipsticks. They have a sweet vanilla, shea butter scent which I adore and makes it even more exciting to apply.
Packaging wise, the rose gold tube is to die for. I actually still keep it in the box because I don't want to drop it and get it ruined in my make up bag it is that stunning. Her name is embossed on the inside on the tube. It is vintaged inspired and reminds me a lipstick you would see in Audrey Hepburn's hand bag.
As you can probably tell, I have fallen for this lipstick range
I have other shades on my list to get (Glastonberry, Red Carpet Red and Walk of shame). They do cost £23.00 which I will admit is bit pricey for a lipstick but in this instance you do get what you pay for. Great product first and foremost as well as beautiful packaging.
If you are looking for a special lipstick or you're a make up collector, obsessive like me you need to take a look at this range. It is the one lipstick at this price point I would say is worth saving up for.
