If there’s one word that can for sure be associated with Charlotte Tilbury’s aesthetic, it is glamorous. From sultry, cool eye looks to glowing skin, her line screams luxury and glamour.
The Matte Revolution lipstick range is no exception, especially with such an ‘Old Hollywood’ color as Red Carpet Red. A gorgeous darkened, blue-based red, this is classic glam at its best.
The texture however, is a far cry from a classic chalky red as it is creamy and comfortable while providing amazing pigment and longevity. This is probably the most comfortable matte I have ever worn on my lips and still, it does not compromise on wear time.
The slightly squared of lipstick bullet is also a beautiful touch, offering a precise line and a lot of control when applying this straight onto the lips. Since it is such a bold color though, I still like to go in with a lip brush to perfect the lines, but if you’re in a hurry, you can definitely skip liner here, there’s no feathering or smudging with this lipstick.
The rest of the range looks gorgeous as well, but I am glad I started of with this red, especially since my MAC Russian Red was on its last leg in terms of the expiration date and this is a wonderful dupe with a much improved formula.
So all in all, Charlotte’s done extremely good on these lipsticks. I am yet to find a product from her range that I don’t like (granted, I haven’t tried that much yet), so please leave any favorites and recommendations down below if you have them!
