Charlotte Tilbury Birkin Brown Matte Revolution Lipstick
Charlotte Tilbury Birkin Brown Matte Revolution Lipstick

Charlotte Tilbury Birkin Brown Matte Revolution Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark reddish-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied with smooth, even color without tugging on the lips. I wouldn’t describe the payoff as buildable; it is as it applies initially, perhaps a little can be built up, but there’s not much to go from where it starts. The color wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Dose of Colors Aesthetic (LE, $18.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Guerlain #04 (P, $33.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Charlotte Tilbury Bond Girl Matte Revolution Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage (finally!) that applies smoothly with a lightweight consistency. This shade had more slip than most shades in the range, but it was also lightly hydrating over the five hours it wore for. MAC Aim to Please (P, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar).

FORMULA SUMMARY | Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to be “long-lasting” with a “buildable, hydrating formula” that has a “modern-matte” finish. The texture has a more velvety consistency (think silicone-based face primers) that feels smooth and lightly creamy, but it is thinner and fairly lightweight. I find they cling slightly, but not in an uncomfortable way, with wear time that ranges from four to six hours. Some shades are drying, others are hydrating, and it seems to vary from shade to shade for me. The formula has a lightly sweet, vanilla-like scent but no discernible taste. They tend to be mostly opaque, and I wouldn’t describe them as buildable–just semi- to mostly opaque.

I’m kind of sad that “Bond Girl” isn’t a color I would ever wear, because I’m a huge Bond fan and kind of want to buy it just for the name haha.

Awww! For some reason, I expected more oomph from it, even though I’m sure they don’t wear tons of bold lipsticks in the movies (I actually have no idea, lol).

Oh man, I like the first 3 – have a real weakness for brown- based lippies. These look great for fall/winter. I might have to treat myself to one. I especially like how Bond Girl is red but not too red. I do love me a bold red lip but sometimes you just want some red that’s really easy to wear and not too bold

I like all four, but especially Walk of Shame and Bond Girl. (No big surprise; I own maybe too many Walk of Shame dupes… and Bond Girl is just such easy to wear shade.)

I think I’d like Very Victoria more in a different finish; for some reason the color and finish work against each other, to my eyes. Birkin Brown is that kind of brown I can ~probably~ make work, but it tiptoes the line of making me look dead. The teensiest shift toward gray-brown and my complexion is toast! Pale, wilted toast.

Yay! The three I wanted most did well and I’m glad Very Victoria is not for me. And since they’re permanent, I have time to get them.

Out of all four, I am liking Birkin Brown the best. It seems quite similar to MAC Paramount lipstick which is a true well-worn and much loved 90’s lippy. I think I’d need to actually try it or most of the others from CT “Matte Revolution” line due to many seeming sheerer than I’m used to for mattes.

I’ve never been interested in Charlotte Tilbury products. She’s soo pushy and the price, i feel, is too high for the actual product you’re getting. But… WOW! I love all of these! Esp the first 3. I might have to take the plunge. 🙂

I can see why you’d say that! I don’t know if it’s any higher than other comparable lines backed by makeup artists, but it’s certainly not a cheap line (and you don’t always get what you pay for at luxury lines).

I love them all, but wow Bond Girl is stunning! I haven’t tried anything from Charlotte Tilbury yet, but I think Bond Girl might be my first purchase.

These are pretty and Birkin is my fave here. I wish we had a CT counter so I could try them. But, honestly, I can’t get over how sheer they look compared to other mattes that are out. 1975 Red doesn’t seem sheer and it’s a matte. Christine, do you think 1975 Red is more opaque then the new line?
