Can we just take a moment out of this drizzly Monday afternoon to talk about how absolutely beautiful this Charlotte Tilbury lipstick is!? It’s in the shade Pillow Talk which is probably one of the brands most famous shade and I can totally see why! Oh my God it is absolutely beautiful! This is my first venture into the brand and I definitely think that Pillow Talk was a wise choice for my very first toe dip into the Charlotte Tilbury pool.
From the Matte Revolution collection, Pillow Talk is probably one of the most iconic nude lipsticks on the higher end of the market. It’s is a stunning, dark rosy pink that isn’t too peachy or too dark, making it perfect for any skin tone. For real. There are swatches on every skin tone on the Charlotte Tilbury website and it looks perfect on every single one. With the most uniquely creamy texture which is almost like cashmere; I haven’t found a lipstick formula quite like this before, it is honestly amazing, texture alone.
Described as a “modern”, soft satin matte which is unlike any matte I have ever tried. It’s not dry and flaky like many characteristically matte lipsticks end up, it remains smooth with a subtle matte finish without drying your lips out, making it extraordinarily unique.
Now I’m dying to get onto the topic of the packaging which I’m sure you will agree, is amazing. A luxuriously beautiful, rose gold metal, that has that lovely quality weight to it and is stunning before you even look at the product inside. The shape of the bullet is the only thing I’m not sure on, it’s squared off which meant it was quite tricky to apply because I’m so used to pointed or doe foot liquid lipstick applicators. I’m sure once I’ve got the hang of it then it won’t be an issue application wise, I do love the look of it though!
This is fast becoming my new favourite lip colour and will definitely be buying more from the brand and if this is anything to go by, I won’t be disappointed!
I have my eye on Bitch Perfect already which is another beautiful nude. I really cannot get enough of this lipstick already and it’s giving my previous faves, MAC Hue and Shy Girl a run for their money!
