Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Mini Lipstick Charms Review and Swatches

Today I'm going to show you a really cute set of miniature lipsticks by Charlotte Tilbury. After wanting them for so long, have they fulfilled my expectations?

Charlotte Tilbury always has some lovely Holiday sets and for a couple of years I have wanted the mini lipstick trio. In 2016 a Matte Revolution set was released, so now you can choose from a trio of K.I.S.S.I.N.G. lipsticks or a trio of the newer matte formula.

I really felt like trying out her matte formulation so I decided to purchase this set for myself. 

Packaging
Charlotte Tilbury's packaging is always impeccable and so stunning. The three lipsticks come in a little cardboard box with three compartments. The box is burgundy with golden lettering like most of her packaging. 

The lipsticks themselves have rose gold cases with small stars and the letters CT on them. They have a burgundy bow at the top to hang from the tree or just to look pretty. 
Formula and Finish
The formula is really outstanding, my lips are usually quite dry and chapped but these lipsticks don't enhance my dry lips. They glide on the lips and once they dry they stay put. 

I wouldn't say they're a chalky matte finish, they're more satin on the lips and offer good coverage. They're long-lasting and comfortable to wear thanks to the lipstick tree and orchid extracts. 
Now that I've tried them I want to purchase more colours in full size because I've been using them a lot since I purchased them. 

Amazing Grace
It's a lovely medium dark pink coral with warm undertones. It's a very flattering colour on my skin tone as corals really suit me. 

It lasts about 5 hours, it is comfortable without being moisturizing or drying. It offers great pigmentation and coverage. 

Red Carpet Red
This is a beautiful medium-dark red with cool undertones, I think it would look great on most skin tones and the blue undertones will make teeth look whiter. 

It doesn't have completely opaque coverage so I usually apply more than one layer or use a lip liner previously. It's a very sophisticated colour just as the name suggests. 

Very Victoria
Here we have a medium-dark rosy brown with warm undertones. It also has semi-opaque coverage so it doesn't look like a mask on the lips but looks more natural. 

Although it's a matte formula it has a satin finish and I really like it as I haven't got any colours like this one. It isn't the most long-lasting of the three as it's more of a nude shade. 
Overall
I really enjoy the formula of these lipsticks, they're comfortable and offer good pigmentation. This set has offered me a great opportunity to try out the formula and these lovely colours. 

Unfortunately I have to admit that I was disappointed when I received this mini set. I knew they were miniatures but I really didn't expect them to be as small as they are. I would be slightly unhappy if I bought this as a gift for someone as they look minute. 

Even so, I love the colours in the set and I have been enjoying them a lot, but perhaps for the same price I would recommend going for a full-sized lipstick. They cost £29, a little more than a full-sized lipstick of the same type.

Would you go for this set of minis or for the full-sized lipstick?
