I'm an absolute sucker for coral shades in all things makeup. Blusher, lipstick, gloss ~ gotta have it! So when I saw one of the nine new Matte Revolution lipsticks from Urban Decay was a hot coral called Tilt, I knew I had to at least swatch it. Matte lipsticks are very difficult to get right you see, truth is I've only ever gotten on with two before Elizabeth Arden's Bold Red REVIEWED HERE and Charlotte Tilbury's Lost Cherry SEEN HERE. Tilt though lured me in from the first google image.
Usually with bright lipsticks I'll swatch on counter and go on my merry way to consider the purchase unless it's out of this world. Tilt is out of this world. I was still gawping at my one swipe swatch when the very friendly SA, Demi asked if I needed some assistance. I was heading to Miss Ireland that night and knew I needed a killer lippie to go with a black gúna. I also knew I can be cack handed in application so she very kindly applied my fill face, Tilt included.
The first thing I noticed was the creamy texture in application, noticeably so for a matte lipstick. That's down to the long list of nourishing ingredients, including a blend of avocado, olive and babassu oils. Shea butter conditions; illipe butter and both vitamin E &C.
The pigmentation is unlike any lipstick I own. I had first thought it a dupe for Lost Cherry but in application it's more a hybrid of Lost Cherry & MAC's Lady Danger together. It packs a seriously colourful punch.
Demi used the matching 24/7 lip liner as, though seriously pigmented, these lippies have a tendency to feather slightly. Normally that's OK but with colours as bright as these you're going to want to contain 'em. I've since used NYX's Wonder Pencil with this and After Dark (a plum matte metallic from the same range) so you really don't need to shell out for the liner too. Clarins also have fab nude lip pencils upcoming to suit your skin tone but more on those soon.
While there is transfer to glasses and hands (if you're handsy like me), Tilt never once smudged for the entire night. I pulled it out to reapply after dinner as my lips felt soft (not the norm with matte lippies) but there was no need. My lips were still as bright as before, it hadn't budged.
In fact the pic below is a screen grab of the message I sent at 2am to say I was safe home after a night of bubbles & boogieing. Check it!
Urban Decay Matte Revolution lipsticks are available in nine bright to nude saturated shades for €19 a pop HERE or on any Urban Decay counter. So enamoured was I with Tilt that I've already picked up After Dark.
What do we reckon? Is Tilt calling to you too?
