Charlotte Tilbury Miss Kensington Matte Revolution Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, light-medium rosy beige with subtle, warmer undertones and fine pearl over a semi-matte finish. It's more of a "frosted matte" in a way, but it doesn't have shine, just shimmer. The texture has a noticeable texture to it due to the high pearl content, and the texture was firmer than 1975 Red, which made it harder to apply. The texture was thinner and prone to emphasizing lip lines. It wore for three hours on me but was moderately drying. Burberry Pink Apricot (301) (P, $30.00) is darker. MAC Kinda Sexy (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker. NARS Barbara (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, darker, glossier. Chanel Sentiment (P, $34.00) is glossier. Tom Ford Beauty In the Buff (01) (LE, $50.00) is glossier. Tom Ford Beauty In the Buff (01) (LE, $50.00) is glossier. Bite Beauty Amaretto (P, $24.00) is less shimmery.
