Going into a Charlotte Tilbury store and walking out empty handed is impossible, everything is just so beautiful!
I popped in the other day and ended up leaving with a new edition to my lipstick collection from the Matte Revolution range, and it looks like it’s going to be my go to nude for the autumn months.
The lipstick in question is Very Victoria from the Matte Revolution collection – known for it’s incredibly comfortable formulation and soft matte finish. I’ve have a few of the lipsticks from the range and they are definitely some of my favourites. I have quite dry lips naturally and for me they are comfortable to wear all day without any drying. One thing I will say is that if you are used to a matte lipstick lasting 6-7 hours on you then these may disappoint as I have to top up every 4-6 hours depending on the shade – however with a lip liner they do last longer and for the finish I think it’s worth it.
Very Victoria is actually inspired by the absolute babe Victoria Beckham! It’s a cool toned taupe nude shade with a hint of purple which really helps to make the teeth look whiter. Nude lipsticks are a go to for me but finding the perfect tone can be tricky, a lot of them will either look too dark or wash me out. Luckily Very Victoria really is the perfect nude shade, the cool undertone and matte finish make it gorgeous for this time of year too.
Like the other Matte Revolution lipsticks the formula actually contains 3D glowing pigments, for me this is the game changer that makes it the perfect nude over other lipstick I’ve tried. My lips look plump and hydrated rather than flat and dull like a lot of other products I’ve used do. The formula is also made up of oils and waxes which really does help make wearing a matte lipstick all day everyday possible.
I wanted to compare it to Bond Girl, which as you can see is a little darker with more of a berry tone to it. In the swatch you can also see the 3D particles I mentioned earlier, such a clever way to add dimension to a lipstick without taking away from a matte finish.
A bit of an old school style post but a lipstick as beautiful as this deserves it’s own post in my eyes. Do you have a favourite shade from the matte revolution range?
