Carina’s Star

Charlotte Tilbury Carina’s Star Matte Revolution Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral with strong, warm orange undertones and a satin sheen. The texture was lightweight, smooth and velvety as it glided across my lips, and very thin. It was prone to emphasizing lip texture, my lip lines, and sank into my lines noticeably. The color payoff was medium to semi-opaque and did not go on evenly. It lasted for three hours on me and was non-drying.

Formula Overview

$37.00/0.12 oz. – $308.33 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “long-lasting color” that’s “buildable” with “glowing pigments” that give the “illusion of wider, fuller lips.” Some shades are buildable while others are fairly pigmented in one stroke. The consistency was more velvety, lightweight, and thin without being clingy or drying over time. I found that some shades were flattering on, as they didn’t emphasize lip texture or get into my lip lines, while other shades gravitated into my lip lines. They wore between three and five hours and were typically non-drying. There was no discernible scent or taste.

Red Hot Susan

Charlotte Tilbury Red Hot Susan Matte Revolution Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich copper with warm, red undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in one, fluid stroke with color that adhered evenly across my lips. There was the faintest amount of product that sank into my deeper lip lines (center of lower lip) but not enough that I could see it in person (just in the close-up photo!). The consistency was smooth, velvety, and thin, so it was lightweight but did not feel clingy. It stayed on nicely for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

Amazing Amal

Charlotte Tilbury Amazing Amal Matte Revolution Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly without dragging across my lips. The texture was velvety, lightweight, and thin without being clingy, though there was a smidgen of product that sat in my deeper lip lines–but not enough that it was noticeable at a normal viewing distance. It wore well for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.
