Charlotte Tillbury Glastonberry || Review

Probably one of the most hyped up lipsticks in the blogging world last year was Glastonberry by Charlotte Tillbury. Ever since Zoe put it in a favourites video, everybody wanted their hands on this and I have read a lot of rave reviews about it. Luckily I won this in a giveaway and I was so excited to try it because I've never tried anything from Charlotte Tillbury yet since it's still a relatively new brand. I obviously picked Glastonberry because it has such a hype around it and it's a colour that is right up my street. 

The packaging is amazing, if I was a lipstick this is how I'd want to be packaged! The bullet is a stunning ridged rose gold with the Charlotte Tilbury logo embossed on the top and the inside bullet also has Charlotte Tillbury engraved on it. The lipstick itself is a squared bullet shape and everything about it screams luxury.

The colour is a beautiful shade, it reminds me of red wine, a deep reddy purple and it also has a really nice smell to it. Glastonberry applied beautifully, was super creamy and buttery which I didn't expect since it has a matte finish and the shape of the bullet made it easy to apply neatly, quickly. The pigmentation on the lips was incredible, it gave exactly what I was looking for but the problem was it didn't give me it for long....

When you hear matte revolution you think long lasting, not having to top up your lipstick, being able to eat and drink without worrying about whether your lipstick has half worn off but nuh uh you'd be wrong. Everytime I've worn Glastonberry it's only lasted a few hours and if you plan on eating or drinking it wears off much quicker than that. I haven't been wearing it with a lip liner but you can wear a Mac matte lipstick without a lip liner and still keep it on your lips for a good 6 hours so I was quite disappointed. I guess the thought of a matte lipstick being buttery and still retaining it's long lasting powers was too good to be true. 

I do love this lipstick, it's beautiful, the packaging is beautiful and I'm so glad that I won it because it is stunning but I don't think I would buy another one. At £23 each, Charlotte Tillbury lipsticks do not come cheap so not something that you want to have to be reapplying multiple times per day! 

Have you tried any Charlotte Tillbury lipsticks? What did you think of them? Are they worth the splurge?

Lots of Love,
