Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick | Review

I spent most of last year avoiding the 90's nude lip that became so popular thanks to the Kardashians. 
I lived through it the first time in the 90's and I wasn't impressed then either but I gradually eased myself in this time. I bought and loved Secret Salma, another lipstick from Charlotte Tilbury which, is still quite pink but certainly got the ball rolling. With that, I paired a nude lip liner from NYX, which I loved. 
Then, Pillow Talk came out. Originally this was just a lip liner and quite a popular lip liner at that. Oddly, I still don't have that because I was quite happy with the one I have from NYX (which I've now lost so I may end up getting the CT lip cheat one anyway. Look, it's a saga, is what I'm saying) but I wanted the lipstick which is from the Matte Revolution range and is described as a 'luminous modern matte lipstick'. 

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick

Charlotte describes this as;

' A gorgeous nude-y pink, it mimics and enhances the natural hue of your lips, so you can CHEAT a perfect pillow-y pout in seconds. Enriched with soothing orchid and Lipstick Tree extracts, lips appear fuller and wider, with a softer, more youthful feel. Finished with an angled square tip, apply straight from the bullet for the best lips of your life!'

I love this shade. On me it's still quite pink but with enough brown in there that it means I can wear a smokey eye and my face ends up being perfectly balanced with this lipstick. It's a very comfortable matte too, I haven't noticed my lips drying out at all. Plus, and I don't want to sound like a total weirdo, but it also makes me look quite classy.

There's two photos here, both unfiltered and taken in natural light but the sun had just come out in the photo on the right so I thought it might be handy to see it in a warmer light! 

If you want this fella you can only get it online, HERE but be aware that it's limited edition so it will eventually be gone, although something tells me they'll be making this a permanent part of the matte revolution collection.

What do you think?
Do you already have Pillow Talk?
Should I just go ahead and buy the lip line too?!

  1. That's such a lovely shade on you, and I love that its versatile, smoky eye suitable and classy too. I love NYX products so I'd say buy anothet NYX liner but maybe get the CT and try it?

    1. Thank you so much! I love NYX too, every time I've gone to get a replacement lip liner it's been sold out! I may have to buy the CT one yet! :D

  2. It's gorgeous on you Chloe. I got it recently too after humming & hawing for ages. See I have the lip liner version & I don't find it great. It comes off very rusty nude iykwim, not at all like the lipstick on me. The lipstick too, on me anyway is very changeable shade wise. One coat is a lovely pinky nude, but if I top it up at all it gets alot more brownish mauve than pink on me. I love it, but I pretty it when freshly applied.

  4. It's my first Charlotte Tilbury lip product. I went to London last week and got the liner and the lipstick. The shade is absolutely stunning, perfect for spring and it pairs well with any make up look. I usually go for bolder colors on my lips but I love how natural this shade looks on me and it makes my lips look fuller so it's a win win :) Totally recommendable and worth every penny.

  5. Very classy lady. I love it too I'd used the lipliner as a lipstick for ages. It's perfect accompaniment for smokey eye. And also very natural look.
    I have quite pigmented pink lips so runs quite pinkish on me.
