Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk Lip Cheat is a favourite within the beauty industry and hands down my personal favourite lip liner- it’s the most beautiful neutral pink and goes with the vast majority of the lipsticks I own (I’m a huge fan of pinky nudes). So when I heard that Charlotte was bringing out Pillow Talk in lipstick form I was ridiculously happy and ordered it as soon as it was released. Charlotte also came out with another limited edition shade for Valentine’s Day – named Valentine, naturally – which I also decided to add to my order, and I am very glad I did.
Pillow Talk is part of the Matte Revolution range, which I haven’t had any prior experience with as all of the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks I own are in the K.I.S.S.I.N.G formula. The lipstick is pretty much identical to the Pillow Talk lip cheat (swatches above) and on my lips it is the perfect ‘my lips but better’ shade. I am seriously in LOVE with this lipstick and feel as though it would look amazing on every skin tone- it is also super pigmented, goes on evenly and is long-lasting.
I was very undecided as to whether I really needed another pink toned nude when placing my order on Charlotte Tilbury, but I let my obsession get the better of me and ended up ordering Valentine as well, which is from the K.I.S.S.I.N.G range. I absolutely love this shade and although I own an excessive amount of lipsticks, this is unlike anything else in my collection. I would best describe this shade as a rose petal pink, and again it goes perfectly with the Pillow Talk liner. This is the perfect pinky nude for lighter skin tones and I know I will definitely get a lot of wear out of this in Spring/Summer.
I am so pleased with both of these lipsticks and if I wasn’t on a student budget I’d definitely be ordering back-ups of both (as far as I am aware, they are both limited edition- although I really wish they weren’t)! Both shades retail for £24 and are exclusive to the Charlotte Tilbury website and her London stores; they are both still currently available online so snap them up whilst you can!
