I've been hearing about the famous Charlotte Tilbury lipstick through friends, specifically this shade called Bond Girl. A lot said it's the perfect 90's brown, it's the perfect daytime vampy lipstick, and some would even say it's Cindy Crawford in a tube (90's babies would understand the reference! Haha!).

Before going to Hong Kong, I only had one makeup to purchase in mind and that is Charlotte Tilbury makeup. Of course, I picked up Bond Girl! They had so much stocks at Lane Crawford! Lovette!

I've been using this lipstick for a week now and I love it! It's my new favorite matte lipstick because it's lightweight, non- drying, not waxy, and it's gorgeous! Also, agree that this is the perfect 90's brown!

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick website says:

Matte Revolution - the words on everyones lips!
Create the illusion of fuller, wider lips with my Matte Revolution – for lips that look lit from within.
It’s a trick I use all the time on photo shoots, using lighting trickery, pigments and powders, and have been working for years to re-create this effect in the slick of 1 lipstick. Now everyone can create this full, matte lip effect in a long-lasting, buildable, hydrating formula – it’s the matte lipstick of the future!
Exclusively enriched with Lipstick Tree extract which protects lips and is a natural anti-oxidant, and Orchid Extract which soothes and hydrates for a soft, buildable cashmere finish. Layer and build the color to create the intensity you want, from a light-as-air matte stain to dramatic full-velvet coverage. Color glides on easily and precisely, thanks to the specially shaped square-tip, inspired by the classic shape of a lip brush.
In 10 luminous modern-matte hues there’s a shade to suit all skin tones:


Some of the popular Matte Revolution shades are Pillow Talk, Very Victoria, and Red Carpet Red. I wanted to get Pillow Talk, but decided to try it first. Had I known I would love it, I would have gotten two more!

One thing that draws me a lot to Charlotte Tilbury is the signature Rose Gold packaging; I love the color and I'm glad she's reintroducing the beauty of vintage packaging to today's market.

Brand insignia carved at the top; it's all in the details, baby!

Matte Revolution is called a modern matte; it's matte, but not flat matte; it starts off with a hint of sheen, but unlike other luxury "modern matte" lipstick brands that don't get past that sheen and fails at becoming matte, this one does. Overall finish is soft matte. It has a floral vanilla scent.

Texture is soft and a bit balmy; it soothes dryness and doesn't highlight patches. It feels moisturizing, but not heavy. Its texture is closest to Illamasqua matte lipstick, but this one is significantly lighter. Oh, it also has very good staying power; it doesn't budge easily!

I'm forever looking for the perfect 90s matte lipstick. I know, I said in some of my reviews of brown lipsticks that they're the 90's brown and Bond Girl is also that, but this time, it's for real.

I delved more into the 90's brown lipstick trend and realized that it's a walnut kind of brown, with a hint of red in it; it's that sweet spot between red and brown; the 90's brown lipstick is sophisticated borderline rebellious. 


For reference, here's the ethereal Cindy Crawford in all her supermodel glory in the 90's wearing a legit 90's lippie.

So let's compare lipsticks that I dubbed as the '90s brown' with the one Cindy is wearing:

Cindy's legit 90s brown lippie vs. Colourpop Lippie Stix in Hollywood Blvd.= Uhm, not quite

Cindy's legit brown 90's lippie vs. Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Heather= It's okay.

Cindy's legit 90's brown lippie vs. Maybelline Creamy Rich Brown in Nude Nuance= Close, but not quite.

Cindy's legit 90's lippie vs. Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in Bond Girl= BAM!

Bond Girl also looks really good on warm skin. I like that the red and brown comes out against my warm skin. It also smells fabulous that I can't help but smell my lips the whole day (So don't get weirded out if you see me and I do this all the time; that means I'm wearing Bond Girl).

Matte Revolution by Charlotte Tilbury is worth the hype. I love it! But I probably would prefer ordering it abroad or have it purchased in Hong Kong for me because the price of resellers here are a bit too much. :(

Overall, this is a good lipstick and I suggest it to you if you love all things pretty, gorgeous, and most especially, if you want a modern matte lipstick that's lightweight and stays put!
