I know I'm a bit late to the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick party, but I'm here now! There has yet to be a Charlotte Tilbury product I've tried that hasn't been remarkable (this concealer is stunning, these are my holy grail cream eye shadows and this palette in Sophisticate is a regular in my routine), and these lipsticks were no exception. I like to think of them as a matte lipstick for those that don't like matte lipsticks. LOL By that I mean, the formula is creamy, smooth and comfortable on the lips though the finish is flat with no shine.
Unlike other matte lipsticks I have, these Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks last a tad bit less at around 5-6 hours, but my lips don't dry out and they don't require an industrial strength cleanser to remove so I appreciate the difference.

I figured I would initially go right for Sexy Sienna (yay peachy nudes!), but I have been loving Walk of Shame for a deeper dusty rose and Love Liberty which is a beautiful garnet shade that is a nice change from my standard bright, bold reds. Glastonberry was the wild card for me because it is quite dark and I wasn't sure I would love it on, but it has grown on me. I wear it paired with a burgundy lip pencil or gloss over top to make it a bit more jewel-toned, but the deep purple base is different than most of my other darker fall shades. Finally, Lost Cherry was an instant hit because it is like a bright cherry popsicle on your lips. The above picture makes it look slightly coral, but it's is more of a cherry/poppy shade in person. And though a "bright cherry popsicle" may not sound like an appealing lip color, I adore it when worn with a shimmery gold eye, bronzey cheek and bold highlight. These are another hit from Charlotte Tilbury, and after getting a look at what will be hitting the states early next year, I cannot wait!
