Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution


It’s no secret I have a major crush on Charlotte Tilbury and it was only a matter of time for me to expand my already existing collection. Being a true matte gal at heart, I purchased her Matte Revolution lipsticks in the shades Red Carpet Red, Lost Cherry and Amazing Grace. Considering the fact I bought them all online based on online swatches – I either did a remarkable job or Charlotte just knows how to create perfect shades – because I’m darn chuffed with my picks. I could’ve added Love Liberty to the stash though …

Charlotte really knows how to please because she once again managed to combine looks, formula and shades in the best possible way. Her lipsticks are almost too pretty to use being so gorgeous from inside and out. The bullet has the sexiest silhouette I’ve ever seen. The shape is breathtakingly beautiful – and yes, we’re still talking lipsticks – the structure, the lines, who would’ve thought that a lipstick could be so seductive? The square angled tip makes application straight from the bullet an actual easy job, where bold shades are no exception to the rule. It’s so well made it omits the need of extra tools, although a mirror would be much appreciated.

Charlotte calls these her matte meets moisturising lipstick range – which by the way sound so so appealing. Whilst I wouldn’t necessarily call these moisturising, they do guarantee a comfortable wear thanks to its lightweight formula and the fact it doesn’t feel like it’s absorbing all the moisture out of your lips. It glides smoothly over the lips without the need of awful dragging or pulling. Pigmentation is equally amazing being opaque in one pass only. It remains there where it should and doesn’t budge or smudge for a good couple of hours, and when it does fade it does so evenly with leaving a beautiful stain behind. I do admit that perfect conditioned lips are very well-advised because they do tend to accentuate fines lines.

I picked up Amazing Grace, a beautiful dusty rose that would suit about about everyone: a demure pinky nude. Next in line is Lost Cherry which I’d describe as a cherry coral. It’s my least worn shade but I’m waiting for spring to whip this out. And finally Red Carpet Red, the kind of red celebreties would rock on the red carpet, I like to call this Hollywood in a tube.

Whilst they are not the longest-lasting out of the bunch, they do feel extremely comfortable on the lips. And since they fade evenly on the lips I don’t mind the lack of lasting power. So matte lip lovers, you know what’s left to do …

    wow theyre ALL so beautiful on you Alice!! and the lipsticks themselves look gorgeous too…i feel like eating them lol. I love how super smooth your lips look in these..not flat, drying matte at all!! Thanks for the great review and swatches pretty girl:)

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      You’re so sweet Dee! Yup, and I very much like the colour range … So many shades I want to add! X

  • Kiss & Make-up

    All colors look amazing on you! You look so pretty. And I love the shape of the lipstick, very unique.

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Thank you Melissa! It’s just unexpected sexiness in a bullet, lol. I love it! X

  • jenn @Abeautifulzen

    these all look REALLY good and i quite like the way the bullet is cut too. the matte isn’t too matte (which can accentuate dryness) from the looks of it. and the fact that they wear evenly is key!

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Hi Jenn! The bullet is very unique, isn’t it? Yes, they are matte but still manage to look luminous, it’s more like what they call the modern matte lipstick nowadays. They are rather creamy especially for a matte formula, therefore they glide onto the lips without accentuating dry patches. However, I found they did accentuate fine lines … Hope this helps! X

  • Sharlynn Ng

    Oh wow! All three shades are absolute stunners! Love how even and gorgeous they look! I can’t wait to try something from her in the future!

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Thank you, Sharlynn. And yes, they look very even and are opaque in one pass. Let me know when you try them! X

  • Lys

    These all look amazing on you! I especially like Lost Cherry!

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Hi Lys! Thank you, so sweet of you! It’s hard to choose a favourite for me, but I can’t deny that Amazing Grace has been used the most, just the prettiest everyday shade out of the bunch – a no-brainer! x

  • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

    Oh so pretty!!! I still haven’t tried anything from CT, but you are slowly convincing me. Lost Cherry might be my favorite here :)

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Hahaha, I know you haven’t. I’m already curious to know your thoughts about her products in general. I love her range so much – no need to tell you that right? :D X

  • Laarni

    ohlawddddz everything is pretty on you and the shape of the lipstick is stunning! =O

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Thank you – you’re so sweet! I know right? I’m so in love with the shape, it’s insane! X

  • EvaBBlogt
