Worth The Hype? Charlotte Tilbury

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick

Sometimes I forget that reviews (and blog posts) can be short and sweet, so this is exactly what this is going to be...

I should begin by saying that I am a matte finish, stay all day, slay all day kind of girl. I do not like a creamy finish on a lipstick, I feel like they bleed and smear and get on my teeth - not a good look. So when I decided it was time to finally try a Charlotte Tilbury product (I know, I know, I live under a rock) I opted for a Matte Revolution lipstick.

I opted for the colour Bond Girl which is a beautiful deep berry colour. The packaging of Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks are a bloggers dream and I liked the unique shape of it BUT this is where my love for it ended.

I found the colour pay off dreadful, it took about 3/4 coats for a decent opaque finish, it felt smeary and creamy and came off as soon as I had a cup of tea. I tried to apply a liquid lipstick in a similar colour over the top but it wouldn't stick to the lipstick, it literally slid straight off. For £23 I expect more than a nice blogging prop. 

Has this put me off trying other products from Charlotte Tilbury? Not at all, every brand has some products better than others and I've only ever heard good things about the brand. If you like a creamier finish then these lipsticks would probably be fine for you but for me it wasn't worth the hype.

Have you had similar experiences with these lipsticks or are you a lover of them?

  1. I've recently been using her new Pillow Talk Matte Revolution lipstick...and I'm in love! I do agree they are really creamy by I love that in a lipstick and for it to still come off as matte, even better! I'm not a shimmer girl at all so these are perfect for me. You need to try Pillow Talk!

    1. Oh really? I'm so wary of trying them again. I didn't feel like it did come off as matte and matte is a real must for me. Next time I pass a CT counter I'll check it out (if its still in stock as I know its LE isn't it? Xo
