Charlotte Tilbury | Very Victoria




(Purchase here)

My sister kindly gifted me with the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in Very Victoria. I couldn't contain my excitement so I tried and tested it and fell in love so I had to share it with you.
Can we all just take a moment to admire the beautiful packaging? *minute silence* It's sleek, sturdy and rose gold. Utter Perfection!
The colour of this lipstick is a pinky browny mauve, perfect for the current "Kylie Jenner lip colour" hype that's everywhere right now. This lipstick was however inspired by Victoria Beckham (as the name would suggest). Two applications would be needed to get the true colour but having said that, you can adjust the undertones with the lipstick depending what lip liner you pair it with. I would advise using MAC whirl, stripdown, soar or spice lip liner. I've also tried a lip gloss on top such as Nars in Dolce Vita or Tanya Burr's lipgloss in First Date. So you can get different results depending on what you want.
Unlike other matte lipsticks which tend to drag on your lips when applying or cling onto dry areas on your lips, this lipstick according to the website is enriched with Orchid extract which soothes and hydrates your lips leaving a soft and cashmere finish.
I love this lipstick with any make-up and it's my go-to at the moment. Charlotte, you nailed it!
