On my birthday last August I got my very first piece of Charlotte Tilbury makeup - the Dolce Vita Palette, and ever since then I've been pretty much obsessed with Charlotte Tilbury, her rock and kohl eyeliner in one of my faves, her Legendary Lashes Mascara is incredible and now I'm at that point where I just NEED everything she has he he. Being the lipstick lover than I am I knew my next purchase would have to be a lippie, and seeing as shes just made her best-selling lip liner 'Pillow Talk' into a matte revolution lipstick it just HAD to be mine!
Charlotte Tilburys Pillow Talk Lipstick is a gorgeous nude-y pink which mimics and enhances the natural hue of your lips, so you can cheat a perfect pillow-y pout in seconds. This sort of shade is right up my street, it goes with any makeup look - day or night and is perfect for any occasion - even work, now I can see why the lip liner is a best seller for Charlotte!
The lipstick itself is enriched with soothing orchid and Lipstick Tree extracts which makes the lips appear fuller and wider, with a softer, more youthful feel and is finished off with that gorgeous matte revolution finish. If your slightly weary of a matte lipstick because of that awful dry feeling then you have to try Charlotte's Pillow Talk, despite being matte it's actually still quite creamy in texture and isn't the slightest bit drying! The application process of Pillow Talk is super quick and easy too, the lipstick actually has an angled square tip which mimics Charlotte's lip brush so it goes on great from the bullet and really sculpts the lips as you go. Lasting power is great too, when I wear this to work it lasts my entire shift without any touch ups needed unless I have something to eat, then I might need to reapply in the centre of my lips but I get that with any lipstick I wear to be honest.
Finally can we all just take a moment to appreciate how stunning the packaging is, it's the most beautiful looking lipstick I own for sure and I think we will all agree that anything Rose Gold gets a huge thumbs up! I actually ordered my Pillow Talk lipstick from the Charlotte Tilbury website and I just wanted to add how fantastic the service was, I chose standard delivery and my parcel arrived within two days and everything was wrapped beautifully like it had been gift wrapped which was lovely, there was also six samples to try in a Charlotte Tilbury envelope which was much appreciated too.
Overall I am so happy that I bought this shade and that it was my very first Charlotte Tilbury lipstick, I definitely chose a great one to start with and I can certainly see this becoming one of Charlotte’s top sellers because it's a stunner.
