Red lipstick fans rejoice because it’s Lunar Year and red is the color of the Holiday! Today, I present to you the Charlotte Tilbury Lunar New Year Magic Red Matte Revolution Lipstick for Chinese New Year 2020. Magic Red Matte Revolution Lipstick is a new, limited edition shade that looks like a warm brick red in promo images which I can totally dig because more blue toned red lipsticks don’t quite work out for me. However, that being said, I do think blue reds look amazing on Asian skin tones so that might have been a better option to go with for this launch! What do you think? The shade comes housed in limited edition red barrel.
Along with the lipstick there’s a limited edition Charlotte Tilbury Lunar Year Charlotte’s Magic Cream with a red top! These come as a set as well if you want both and that set is available exclusively at charlottetilbury.com.
I do want the lipstick but I don’t need the Magic Cream. I love Magic Eye Cream and Magic Night Cream but Magic Cream simply doesn’t do it for me. I really need to maybe give it a second chance as when I originally tried it I was not impressed.
I sort of wish mine had a red top haha…! Which reminds me! I read an article recently that brands were cashing in on Lunar Year. I had some very strong feelings about the fact that the makeup world was capitalizing on Pride Day. This was mainly because there were so many releases that month and very few were actually helping the LGBT+ community. Great rainbow packaging but what about a donation or two to an LGBT+ organization?
I do not feel as averse about Lunar Year launches. I’m actually pretty happy that this year more than any other year we have so many options to celebrate the Chinese New Year. I also think it’s nice brands acknowledge the Chinese New Year.
