A stunning new lip colour from Charlotte Tilbury: Opium Noir

Charlotte Tilbury Opium Noir Lipstick Review, Swatches & Giveaway

Have you read my Charlotte Tilbury Brand Focus post? If  you did, you will know that I am huge fan of her lipsticks - everything from the packaging to the formula, to the shade selection just speaks to me! I had 11 in my collection and was recently kindly sent Opium Noir, which was previously only available in the Film Noir Nights Makeup Kit

Charlotte Tilbury has two lipstick formulas - K.I.S.S.I.N.G. and Matte Revolution. I actually love both formulas and find them comfortable to wear but Opium Noir is from the Matte Revolution range so that's what I'll focus on today.

Before trying a Charlotte Tilbury matte lipstick, I used to avoid anything matte because I have dry skin and dry lips and anything matte has a tendency to cling to dry patches and accentuate the dryness and any lines, however the Matte Revolution range is a game changer. The formula is the most comfortable of all matte lipsticks I have tried - not drying at all and although matte lipsticks usually look flat, that is not the case with these. I actually find that they make my lips look fuller.

Swatch is completely unedited.

Opium Noir is a deep berry colour and it applies in a lighter shade than it appears in the bullet, which makes it universally flattering. I love the square angled tip because it allows for precise application and only one swipe is needed because this is one pigmented lipstick! I find that I can get around 4-5 hours of wear before it needs topping up but it doesn't fade patchily. 

Of course, I have to mention the stunning packaging - rose gold and ribbed, it looks striking on the dressing table and who wouldn't love to take this out to re-apply their lipstick? Although we are approaching Spring, I think this could still be worn as it's a classic shade - I know I'll be wearing it!

Is Opium Noir your kind of shade? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
