Hmmm, I’m not sure what to make of Charlotte Tilbury’s Amazing Grace.
Looking at various beauty blogs, this seems to be one of the favourites of the Matte Revolution range, and it really is a thing of beauty to look at. It’s a smoothly opaque stick of what could be the ultimate shade of tea rose. For a lover of vintage, the colour is like a glimpse back half a century. It reminds me of the kind of shades my Great Aunt used to wear, with her make up tastes forever set firmly in the 1960s.
The problem is that I don’t think tea rose looks much good on me, much as I wish it would purely on account of loving the name. It’s pink with possibly a hint of muted peach, but still too pink for me. I’d say it was more a colour for a cooler complexion, maybe a Spring colouring would be ideal.
It looks quite starkly bright on me, too much for me to feel comfortable to wear by itself. However, I can use its brightening properties by using it to layer alongside other lipsticks. This isn’t something I’d been in the habit of doing, but I find the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipsticks layer very well with each other. If Birkin Brown feels a bit too muted for the way I feel, a sheer swipe of Amazing Grace over the top shines a light on the colour.
