Style File – Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick

IMG_2856

Charlotte Tilbury, the brand which since its launch a couple of years ago has become a staple in any beauty bloggers makeup bag. As someone who still thinks of their self as rather new to the makeup game, in terms of high end beauty game I really don’t want to be spending any of my precious student loan on bad products. With lipstick being the only thing really that I would go high end for, after seeing practically every beauty blogger under the sun raving about the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lip sticks, I had to get my hands on one. And with a nice little Selfridges gift card for crimbo it cushioned the monitary blow and finally I managed to get my little mits on one.

After much deliberation (the with red carpet red being out of stock was kind of decided it for me) I plumped for Love Liberty (points to the eagle eyed amongst you who notices it placed on Liberty London print postcards, thought it was quite apt). Matte will always be the type of lipstick that I go for with hating the feeling of my lips being all sticky and slimy. I like to be able to put it one and forget about it with not having to think to top it up from time to time. 

Now I don’t think i am going to get away with this review without comparing this to my beloved Mac Matte lipsticks with this new one having a high bar to try and match. I went for Love Liberty as I thought this was the closest and the best alternative to my all time favorite being that of Mac Mehr, just being a little on the darker side (see already guilty and its not quite as dark as it seems in the picture)

With all the hype surrounding these lipsticks with most beauty bloggers praising them to the high heavens I was annoyed when after trying it out I was slightly disappointed. I didn’t find its longevity and staying power to be quite as good as I hoped with finding that after just a few hours it was looking patchy feeling that I needed to reapply it. I did find it easier to apply with it being quite creamy in texture but this is what probably lead it to not last as long. 

Also personally I was a little unsure not he colour when first applying it with it being a bit more pink than my usual shades however I have grown to love and it I’ve found it is a beautiful colour when worn with Maroon. Also I can’t not talk about a charlotte Tilbury product without a mention to the packaging, just need to remember to keep it out of reach of any passing magpies.  

Charlotte Tilbury Love Liberty is available to purchase at Selfridges
