The Ulti-Matte Lipstick

IMG_0240 IMG_0243

First things first *sings: I’m the realest*, can we just take a moment to admire the beauty of this Charlotte Tilbury lipstick? I can genuinely say that a lipstick is more beautiful than me – it’s stunning.

If you’ve been around these parts a while, you’ll know that creamy, moisturising lipsticks are my thing. The words creamy and moisturising usually don’t go hand in hand with the word matte, but Charlotte Tilbury has changed the game. Her Matte Revolution lipsticks are literally a revolution.

My fab friend Jen (hey gal!) got me this lipstick for Christmas, and straight away she said “I know you’re not mad on matte lipsticks, but I think you’ll like this”. And boy was she right – I love it. The formula is a magical combination of creamy, moisturising, non-drying and matte. Saying that a matte is non-drying is like saying snow isn’t wet, but this formula defies all odds. It doesn’t crack on the lips, or fade off unevenly. It’s smooth, long-lasting and simply amazing.

As for the colour? Sexy Sienna is a beautiful coral-pink, that has sneaked its way into my everyday makeup routine. I thought I could never be converted into loving matte lipsticks, but I can guarantee this won’t be the only Matte Revolution lipstick in my collection for long. If you’re looking to treat yourself on payday, pick this up – you won’t regret it.

    Ahhh, I’d love one of these but they’re expensive. I love the packaging so much.
