Wow, what a Christmas it has been. One of the best and one of the worst. I won't bore my readers with every detail, but we have unfortunately had some unexpected family problems, with two close family members being ill over Christmas. Apart from that, I have been busy revising and getting on with my assignments (whilst juggling the cranberry sauce- I cooked the majority of our dinner for 13!) and have put family and University work first the past two weeks. But now that things are calming down, it's time to stay focused.
I had so many lovely presents for Christmas, my blog content is set for months. One product that I put to use straight away and fell in love was my very first Charlotte Tilbury product, a lipstick. I had admired the packaging and descriptions of CT products on other peoples blogs for months, so when I opened this little baby, I may have squealed.
I received the Matte Revolution Lipstick in Amazing Grace (£23). Firstly, the packaging. It is well thought-out and luxurious. The CT colours, purple and gold, are on every item. It is a rose gold colour to be exact- win win. The colour of Amazing Grace is described as "vintage-tea rose" and in all honesty, I'm not sure what that's supposed to mean. I'd describe it as a gorgeous bright (but not too bright) pink that can be worn daily. It's more nude than rosy. One thing I noticed is the shape of the actual lipstick is almost a square, making it easy to apply a defined cupids bow, which I love the look of.
After reading lots of positive reviews for these lipsticks, I had big expectations for the formula. Let's say I wasn't disappointed. Sometimes when you hear 'matte' it basically means 'drying', but this baby does not dry my lips out. It's very comfortable and not at all drying. It lasts longer than your average lipstick on the lips but for the price, that is what I was expecting. I cannot wait to add to my new collection of CT.
Have you got any recommendations for CT products?
