Over the last year or two I have become a big fan of Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks, particularly her matte revolution collection which has some gorgeous shades to choose from.
Very Victoria has been a long time favourite, and more recently, Pillow Talk and Tell Laura have been added to my favourites list also. There is just something about the creaminess of these lipsticks that feels so luxurious when you wear them, and the matte finish means that a little goes a very long way.
When I was at the Charlotte Tilbury counter a few weeks back picking up a birthday present for someone, I saw Sexy Sienna and liked the coral undertone so decided to splurge and treat myself. The thing about these lippies is, they are not cheap, so you really need to love the shade and the formula to justify the cost. Thankfully for me, I love both!
Because of the matte finish, I would describe this as more of a nude/beige coral – it doesn’t have the pop that say Tell Laura or MAC’s Mangrove have, but it still has a nice subtle tone that makes it very easy for most skin tones to wear.
In all honesty, if I had my way I think I’d buy nearly every lipstick in this range because I’ve yet to try one I don’t like. I often find I’m more critical of the pricier, high-end brands because when I’m spending €32, it really has to be worth the money.
