Charlotte Tilbury is our makeup fairy Godmother. The woman can do no wrong, in our eyes. From glow giving foundations to amazing primers and the sweetest of eye shadow palettes; her makeup collections have been a blessing to Bride-to-be’s. However, her top product category are her lipsticks and the Matte Revolution formula is one of the most long wearing, comfortable and flattering lipsticks – and trust us, Mattes are hard to get right! So, what does Charlotte say about this nearly new lipstick that was so quick to become a bloggers best buy?
“Darlings, I am so excited to share my incredible Pillow Talk lipstick with you! My friends have been BEGGING me for years to turn my CULT classic Lip Cheat Lip Liner into a lipstick, so I am thrilled to introduce the iconic shade in a magic Matte Revolution finish!
This dreamy nude pink is the ultimate celebrity and supermodel lip colour for naturally fuller, wider lips. The colour 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!”
We’d say Pillow Talk lipstick is a medium-tone, rose-beige with an extremely subtle satiny matte finish. It’s a great every day, don’t-need-to-think-about-it shade that you can swipe on with absolutely any makeup look, or totally on its own. Not only that, but Pillow talk is a gorgeous bridal lipstick, with thanks to it’s ‘flattering on ALL skin tones’ appeal, longevity and it’s perfectly pretty hue.
We put it to the test at The Wedding Affair HQ and on me, Ella (I’m very fair!) it pulled a deeper, more rose colour which didn’t wash me out, but certainly if you’re more of a tanned or deeper skin tone, it will be a great go-to nude shade to wear for your nuptials!
How would you wear Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk for your wedding, loves?
