Hello dear readers!
Recently my favorite online makeup store had free shipping on all the CHARLOTTE TILBURY products. So today I decided to write a review of my ambivalent fave, which I bought there some months ago. We’ll talk about the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick.
Usually, the product costs $39.00. Currently, this is the most expensive lip product that I have.
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick
I like the luxurious box and equally luxurious lipstick casing more than the contents… The violet-burgundy cardboard box with gold lettering makes me think about the possible hefty price of the product (and of course, it always makes me think about the reasons why I actually bought this very shade…).
The tube is lightweight and metallic, made in a rose gold color. The top cap has the branded letters CT engraved.

The bullet itself has a rather unusual cut, which my mind can’t help but compare with a thick felt-tip of a pen. It’s so thick that it really looks like a highlighter textliner. Well, a textliner for $39, nice!

It feels like the tip of the bullet is a stump of a usual shape that we’ve all gotten used to see. The shape isn’t bad to scold, but for me, it’s just strange. And yeah, it’s quite possible that I’m just too much into the Huda Beauty lipsticks.

Texture and finish
The formula is awesome. It fits the bill of my makeup so easily.
The finish isn’t dry, which isn’t typical for all the other matte lipsticks. It’s more satin-matte visually but on my lips, I feel it truly silky. The product is able to set fully and turn transfer-proof within 20 minutes of application. No less.
Even though the shape of the bullet is rather strange (in some reviews they even compared it with a sex organ), the lipstick is still convenient to apply. However, it’s still a pain to apply it evenly. It 100% requires a lip liner and a brush. If you’re an artist, then you’ll probably love it, but I need just to apply the texture over my lips and go out, that’s all. I don’t need all that mumbo jumbo.
It doesn’t stain my teeth or feather throughout the day. It just slowly vanishes from them.
I wish I watched through some YouTube reviews before ordering this product.
As for the good, I can list the pleasant aroma of camellia, which is really distinctive when I sniff the tube and barely noticeable on my lips.
The product is undoubtedly comfortable on my lips and it’s a pure pleasure to apply it.
But it doesn’t look $39 and it isn’t worth that for sure.
The shade looks different to what I saw on the official website. I wish I opted for a darker color, because this Amazing Grace isn’t actually my cup of tea.
I don’t recommend this Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick, regardless of how popular and pleasant it is.
Thanks for your attention!
