Say hello to a perfect red lip from Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution lipstick range ; The Red Carpet Red is THAT perfect ruby red that is the one I turn to when I want show-stopping, eye-catching and a perfectly glam red lip. Think Marilyn Monroe red, an amped up Ruby-woo and a red lipstick that you 100% need in your collection for all the seasonal parties.
The texture is absolutely one of the best I have tried from a lipstick range ; full-pigmented, matte yet luscious and comfortable to apply. No dry lips here, it has some magic-ness in it that makes it both matte and hydrating. These lipsticks are enriched with lipstick tree (really) extract and orchid which protects lips, soothes and nourishes. The only lipstick I can liken it to is the Lipstick Queen ‘Velvet Rope’ range if you have ever been lucky enough to try these. I find once applied it leaves my lips really full & plump looking…Google tells me that this could be because of the 3D glowing pigments in the lipstick that give this effect…another hoooo-ray.
With such a bold, matte red, it’s quite nice to leave all focus on the lips so I often team it with a simple wash of colour on the eye and some mascara. Here I have used ‘Isolde’ duo from NARS, a slick of black mascara and then I have kept the skin just light and glowing. The highlighter is the Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate.
I can’t wait to try some of the other shades from the range now, they do 10 in total and they cost £23 which is actually a great price for such great quality and I would quite honestly pay more. Have you tried any of the Matte Revolution lipsticks yet?
