Although I love all things fashion and beauty, I hate waste. That’s why you won’t see me with 23 lipsticks in my make up drawer. I like having a couple tried and true lippies that I can throw on quickly and use until there’s not a drop left!
I actually have only two holy grail lip products I’ve used day in and day out for the last nine years. Yup, two. This lipgloss in ‘sandy’ has held down the fort since college and this lipstick in ‘backtalk’ I discovered last Spring.
It takes a serious contender for my to stray from either. That to say, there is a new gal in town and she’s quite perfect. Her name is “Pillow Talk” by Charlotte Tilbury.
According to Charlotte Tilbury statistics for 2017, 1 Pillow Talk is sold every two minutes! Whoa!
When I saw that the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Set was included in this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale I decided to give it a go and i’m happy I did.
For $60 you get:
+Pillow Talk Lipliner
+Pillow Talk Lipstick
+Pillow Talk Lipgloss
So why the cult following? Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk Lipstick is a universally flattering, warm rosy-mauve lipstick with a soft matte finish that makes your lips look full and flush. AKA it’s the PERFECT every day lipstick.
Even when I opened up the tube of lipstick, I wasn’t yet convinced. I was like ‘Meh, looks like an pretty lip product. but I still don’t get the hype.’ Then once you apply it, you understand the magic.
Between the color upon application, the pigmentation, color versatility and overall quality of each product in the trio, this set for $60 is a deal. It also makes a wonderful Christmas gift for any girly-girl or beauty lover!
Today I wanted to show you step by step what each product looked like.
CHARLOTTE TILBURY PILLOW TALK LIPSTICK REVIEW
1.MY NATURAL LIPS WITH NOTHING APPLIED
I usually apply a light chapstick under my lip products, but I don’t with this routine because the liner won’t apply well if you have a slippery base. Even as a matte this lipstick is hydrating so don’t worry about getting cracked lipstick or dry lips!
2.CHARLOTTE TILBURY PILLOW TALK LINER APPLICATION
Lip liner holds your lipstick in place and prevents against it bleeding onto your skin. You can also over line to make lips appear more full! The pinky nude hue allows this liner to be a great base for ANY lipstick.
3.CHARLOTTE TILBURY PILLOW TALK LIPSTICK
Oh boy. Look at that pretty color! The pigmentation is amazing! The rosey nude hue looks gorgeous on ALL skin tones and the finish is the perfect mix matte and cream hybrid.
4.CHARLOTTE TILBURY PILLOW TALK LIPGLOSS
I’m a gloss girl! I love a shiny lip. This gloss looks gorgeous layered over the last three steps OR on it’s own. It adds the perfect touch of sheen and has the perfect amount of pigmentation.
So tell me! What’s your go-to lip products?!
