Charlotte Tilbury Carina’s Star Matte Revolution Lipstick 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.
Red Hot Susan
Charlotte Tilbury Red Hot Susan Matte Revolution Lipstick 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.
Charlotte Tilbury Amazing Amal Matte Revolution Lipstick 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.
