Bond Girl; the lipstick that is moving Velvet Teddy to the back of the queue (and I never thought I'd see the day)...
Pretty similar to my previous every day staple, Charlotte Tilbury Bond Girl from the matte revolution collection is described as a neutral berry, a brown with pink/ purple under tones.. This is the lipstick that is perfect for any skin tone and one of those that looks good with any base or eye makeup - you literally can't go wrong! It is also buildable, it can be worn more sheer or layered up, off course I went as bold as I could go.
Not only does the colour win me over granting it the Holy Grail title, but the formulation is like no other matte I've tried. The tree and orchid extracts within the lipstick claim to protect and soften your lips (agreed, and my lips get so dry). The formula is also seriously long lasting, I needed to touch up after 6 hours of wear (within that time I had scoffed a burger and drank one too many coffees) so it is hands down the most "comfortable" matte lipstick in my collection, which makes it perfect for everyday.
Charlotte Tilbury being as amazing as she is, hasn't just made a matte lipstick that looks flat on the lips, but through the use of reflected pigments and powders made a formula that makes my lips look fuller and more plump, it is amazing! Another impressive asset is the beautiful packaging for one, but also the shape of the lipstick, it makes application so easy, why don't all lipsticks have a square flat top?
It will set you back £23, but I don't even care it is worth it. Be prepared to see this lipstick in most instagram's/ blog photos for the next few
