It started with the eyeshadow palette for me and then spurred into something more.
Okay, so I think it’s safe to assume that Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk lipstick is the most iconic product in her line of makeup (although there are some seriously wonderful things in her line up in general), and what just started off as just a lipstick has quickly branched into a whole assortment of products based off the blush nude shade.
My first foray into Pillow Talk was actually the eyeshadow palette (C$66), which is a four-shadow palette in complementary hues. Their Luxury Palette (which is also available in an assortment of other colour combos) boasts four shades that totally make eyes show stopping and noticeable. Included in the palette is a shimmery champagne pink, a matte dusky rose, a soft matte brown, and a rose gold sparkle. I love this palette since it’s so versatile, easy to wear, and flattering on the eye area. Since I have blue eyes, it really helps make them pop.
I did do a post on this palette already if you want to check it out in more detail.
Also flattering is their Cheek to Chic blush in the shade Pillow Talk (C$50), which I believe came out a few months ago. I’ve tried the brand’s cream blush formula before, but definitely prefer the powder. The Cheek to Chic blushes are also available in a variety of other shades and they contain Light Flex technology which creates the appearance of capturing light and re-emitting it for a luminous-looking complexion. At first glance you’ll notice the dual design and shades in the pan which are designed to be swirled together to create the perfect shade. The colour is very natural and perfectly complements your complexion. I love this shade and think it’s universally flattering, meaning it would look perfect on just about any skin tone.
To finish up the look you of course need to wear the product that started it all, the lipstick! First start with the Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pillow Talk (C$27), which is a nude pink lip liner designed to be worn with the lipstick. These liners have a waterproof, velvet formula that just glides onto the lips helping you to shapes lips, keep the colour longer, and prevent feathering.
Next, glide on the Matte Revolution lipstick in the iconic shade (C$39) for a matte lip look. This lipstick formula contains trees and orchid extracts to soften, protect, and hydrates lips, leaving them looking younger and healthier. It also have 3D glowing pigments to create an illusion of being lit from within and making them look wider and fuller.
If matte isn’t your thing, then try out the brand-new Pillow Talk Diamond lipstick topper (C$39), which is a shimmery lipstick that can be worn alone or overtop of another lipstick. This topper contains mineral-based pigments to capture and reflect light for a multi-dimensional glow. It also has sunflower seed oil and hops extract to nourish and condition the lips. Worn alone it looks very shimmery, but when layered over top of the Matte Revolution lipstick it adds a glossy effect.
Clearly it’s obvious that I absolutely love the shade Pillow Talk, and honestly, it’s for good reason. This shade is so flattering on most skin tones and I love that the brand has come out with so many different products so it can be worn in a variety of ways. All the products I have tried in the Pillow Talk shade are worth their hype and if you can get your hands on one, whether it’s the liner, the eyeshadow, the blush, or the lipstick, I promise you won’t regret it.
Do you tried anything from the Pillow Talk line up?
