If there is one lip colour that I totally bought into, it’s Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk.
What started off as a lipstick quickly evolved into just about every colour cosmetic out there, with the brand releasing two eyeshadow palettes, an eyeliner, a lipliner, and a blush. The most wearable way to wear it though? The OG lipstick of course!
I’ve chatted about Pillow Talk before on here and if you are looking to rock it the original way, then get your hands on her Matte Revolution lipstick (C$39). 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.
To add a little more oomph to the lips, top the Matte Revolution lipstick with her Pillow Talk Diamonds Lip 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. I also find, as seen in the photos below, when you pair this with the lipstick it makes your lips look more plump and it mutes the colour out a little bit, so if you like nudes like me, then I think you’ll really love this combo.
Finally, if you are looking for a little shine, then take a look at her Lip Lustre Gloss Magic (C$28), which is available in numerous shades, as well as Pillow Talk. This gloss contains a light-reflecting formula that makes lips look plump, whereas the velvet lustre finish feels comfortable on the lips and not sticky.
I would also say that this shade does look a little lighter applied to the Matte Revolution lipstick, but since I typically gravitate towards pinky-nudes, this one is right up my alley. The formula also contains lotus flower extract to soften and condition the lips, film former to enhance the wear and longevity of the product when applied, and glossy ester to give your lips a glossy finish.
If you are looking for the ultimate Pillow Talk look, then try pairing the lipstick with the Lip Lustre for a beautiful pinky-nude lip.
Charlotte Tilbury doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon with her Pillow Talk releases since she also recently announced her Collagen Lip Bath in the iconic shade, as well as her Beauty Light Wand and a whole range of complementary Pillow Talk colours in her Matte Revolution line as well. Clearly the shade is on a roll here and having tried it in multiple products in her line, I can honestly say that it’s definitely worth the hype.
With so many items to choose from, it won’t be hard to find the right Pillow Talk product for you.
