There’s no stopping matte and it ain’t slowing down my friend! As a great matte lippy lover, I have this self-imposed mission to find the next best thing to grace my growing matte collex. Why this obsession you ask? let me summarize in two words: effortless statement. You can be bare-faced or wearing old slipphas but trust me, matte lipstick (the brightest or boldest) stops traffic.

The latest to jump in the matte bandwagon? Charlotte Tilbury no less. Named Matte Revolution Luminous Modern Matte (Nordstrom exclusive), I procured 1975 Red (orange red, $32, 0.12 oz/ 3.5 g), initially part of Norman Parkinson limited edition. There are 12 shades available, ranging from neutral to pink to berry.

Aside from the formula, what differentiates this new line from the Kissing Fallen from The Lipstick Tree (review here) is the chiseled tip which isn’t revolutionary but functional to say the least. It conforms to the shape of my lips, thereby making it easy to swipe and glide.

Creamy and matte but not luminous, at least for 1975 Red. Not a big deal because I love authentic and unadulterated matte. This feels light on the lips but it does require 2-3 pass to render enviable opacity. Staying power is relative; while it doesn’t fade when left alone, it wipes off easily after a meal. As with other mattes, it does accentuate dry lips so exfoliation is highly recommended prior to application. Here’s a swatch comparison with some of my favorite red orange lippies:

      Thanks Nidia. I love blue-based too but I think warmer tone matches my skin tone better
