Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk







After lusting over Francisca May and Faye Friday's Instagrams since forever, I finally got my hands on the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick & Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pillow Talk. I think these photos were also inspired a little bit by the Tilbs Twins themselves!

As you most probably know, Charlotte Tilbury herself is a makeup artist who launched her own makeup products. The packaging is so beautiful and I really do love her whole branding. The lipstick comes in her signature gold packaging and the lip liner is in an accompanying gold colour.

The Pillow Talk colour is one of those really staple nude shades. It is a dark pink, muted mauve nude shade that suit a lot of people. The colour is one of those where you can easily overdraw your lip line and create a fuller lip as well, always handy for those of us born with slightly thinner lips! I find the colour is very versatile, it can be worn with a very bold or very neutral makeup look. It is definitely a colour that can be worn every day. 

The lip liner is really easy to use, the formula is creamy enough so that it doesn't tug on the lip but firm enough to allow you to be very precise with its application. Again, it really is great for overdrawing the lip line slightly. It's very pigmented and it feels really comfortable on the lip. The staying power is pretty good.

The Pillow Talk lipstick is from the Matte Revolution range, I much prefer this formula to the K.I.S.S.I.N.G range. The formula is very matte, which means it is a little more stiff when applying. But nothing too difficult to work with! I find it goes on really well on top of the lip liner and it is quite comfortable on the lip, but it does feel quite matte. The lasting power is pretty good in fairness to it. I would say the lasting power is better than the MAC matte lipsticks. It does come off a bit when you eat and drink, especially in the middle. So reapplication is necessary.

As for price, the lip liner is £16 and the lipstick is £23 and I have to say, it is a little bit overpriced. As much as I love the packaging and the colour, £39 is a lot of money to be spending on lip products that need reapplication after eating and drinking. I guess I am just a sucker for a label!

You can buy Charlotte Tilbury in quite a few places, I do love visiting the Selfridges stand in Birmingham. Even if it is always really busy! Bae bought mine from John Lewis when they had one of their price match campaigns on, so you can sometimes get a few quid off! Other than that, I don't often see Charlotte Tilbury on sale/discounted anywhere. I think even Feel Unique exclude them from their discount offers, which is a bit annoying! If you know of places where you can get CT a bit cheaper, do let me know!

What do you guys think about Charlotte Tilbury? Do you like the products? Do you think it is a little bit overpriced?

Thank you for reading!
