Surely all lipsticks are the same right? Well no, unfortunately they’re not. After trying nearly every lipstick around, there’s one that I always come back to. Of course, it’s Charlotte Tilbury.
I don’t know if it’s the signature rose gold packaging or the old Hollywood style but I’m into Glamour with a capital G, so therefore I’m very into Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks.
It’s not just style over substance though as one Matte Revolution Lipstick is sold every minute. That’s a whole lot of lipstick, and while the instantly recognisable Pillow Talk shade is in the beauty hall of fame, the formula itself is where all the good stuff is.
A matte lipstick that’s comfortable to wear without looking chalky and easy to apply with the angular square tip bullet. It always makes my lips feel soft and nourished and the colour never disappoints.
But don’t just take my word for it, it’s not only an award-winning bestseller, but Amal Clooney, Kate Moss, Poppy Delevingne, Sabrina Elba and more are big fans.
It’s tricky balancing how a lipstick feels, with how it looks. Usually one suffers, but not with Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks and this is true of not only the Matte Revolution collection but the others too. You get next level colour pay-off regardless of the shade and it doesn’t feel like you’ve used sandpaper on your lips by midday.
Lipstick isn’t always easy to just swipe on and keep it moving, but thanks to the super sharp square tip you won’t have to use a lip brush for precise application.
If your lipstick collection needs an overhaul or you’re in treat-yourself-season, look no further. Keep scrolling for the shades you need on your radar.
