The first time Charlotte Tilbury released the Charlotte Tilbury The Queen Matte Revolution Lipstick, it sold so well & quickly that it became their ‘best-selling’ lipstick, that they just HAD to re-release it – makes perfect economical sense after all even though it defeats the whole point of LIMITED EDITION – I actually bought the Charlotte Tilbury The Queen lipstick the first time it was released – yaaaay back in October 2016 – but as the launch was right in the middle of my ‘blogging sabbatical’, I didn’t feel an urgency to talk about it . . . although I did post a very pretty picture of The Queen lipstick on my Instagram.
I’m not really a bright-pink lipstick wearer or particularly patriotic but that didn’t stop me from trekking down to Covent Garden – finding out they had sold out – then actually buying the lipstick on my phone . . . right in front on the store – looking very shifty might I add – because as:
- I love anything limited edition
- I love Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick
- It was limited edition
which is why I’m just a teeny bit upset they re-launched it and made it permanent. . . does my makeup obsession mean NOTHING to you people???
The Charlotte Tilbury The Queen Matte Revolution Lipstick – £24 via Charlotte Tilbury -is a paraben free dark pink lipstick with blue undertones created in homage to Her Majesty, Elizabeth II. Enriched with a breakthrough, secret ingredient from “the Lipstick Tree”, the Charlotte Tilbury The Queen comes in a matte formulation that is long-lasting, buildable and hydrating . . . well as hydrating as a matte lipstick can be.
When worn on the lips, I will admit that the Charlotte Tilbury The Queen lipstick takes on a much darker, bluer tone than you would think when looking at the bullet or on the Charlotte Tilbury website. I actually think this lipstick looks a bit fuchsia on my lips but I still get about 5 hours of wear so I’m not complaining (much).
Even though I am a bright pink lipstick lover – although I tend to wear nude shades on a daily basis – I don’t think the Charlotte Tilbury The Queen lipstick will ever be an everyday shade for me – which I was completely fine with when I though the lipstick would STAY limited edition -but that does not stop me from saying that this pink lipstick is stunning, looks great on darker skin tones and is a great addition to my #365LipstickDays Lipstick Challenge.
The Charlotte Tilbury The Queen Matte Revolution Lipstick costs £24 and is available to purchase exclusively from Charlotte Tilbury
