Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Collection Review + Swatches

If you’re a big fan of Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk lip shades, then you will most likely fall in love with her newest Pillow Talk Collection which now includes a blush, a highlighter, lip liners, and lipsticks (among other things) that are deeper in tones than the original Pillow Talk color. 

 

I feel like this collection is an answer and a dream come true to those who had mixed feelings or couldn’t make up their mind about the original Pillow Talk shade. I, for one, could not work the Matte Revolution lipstick in Pillow Talk at first because it kind of made me look washed out, and the Matte Revolution’s formula wasn’t very long-wearing on me. But, ever since the lockdown, my skin had lightened a bit and for some reason, the original Pillow Talk shade seems to now complement my skintone. Also, I don’t know if it’s just me, but the latest Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks especially the matte ones seem to be quite long-lasting on my lips now. Hmmm, so, did I just received a bad batch in the past? Well, anyway, in this review, I will be showing you some swatches of my top picks in this newest Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk collection which are mostly lip products, by the way. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the Instant Pillow Talk Eyeshadow Palette because I think the shades weren’t so good for me. I find them to have lots of pinks and reds, however, it’s one big gorgeous palette.

Cheek to Chic Blush in Pillow Talk Intense (0.28 oz: 40 USD) – Described as deep rosy pink, this newest Charlotte Tilbury blush may look deep but this is actually easy to work on the cheeks because the texture is so fine and so easy to build and blend. This gives a beautiful rosy brownish mauvy glow that really defines the cheekbones. I like to swirl the outer shade along with the middle shade to have a more subdued effect when using this blush. I also feel like I could double this as a bronzer or as a contour because this shade is very versatile and also very pigmented, and speaking of versatile, this blush could be used for any season, for sure.

Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pillow Talk (0.04 oz: 22 USD) – I always love this original pink nude Pillow Talk lip liner because this glides very well on the lips and this stays on for hours. This has a nice creamy texture that doesn’t feel dry. Also, this shade works very well with almost all of my lipsticks, so I always repurchase this, but I should have and will definitely try the Pillow Talk Medium soon. I do recommend this, and I think that if you’re looking for a good versatile lip liner shade, then you may like this one a lot.

Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk & Pillow Talk Medium (0.12 oz: 34 USD) – My favorite Charlotte Tilbury lipstick finish is definitely the Matte Revolution and with the addition of this newest Pillow Talk Medium which has a warm berry pink tone, well, I think I definitely like this more than the original Pillow Talk which is a pinkish nude shade, even though that one is starting to grow on me. This shade is what I’ve been waiting for from Charlotte Tilbury and this works really well for my light-medium skintone.

K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Pillow Talk Intense (0.12 oz: 34 USD) – If matte’s not your thing, then you most likely have preferred this satin finish lipstick which has a nice moisturizing effect on the lips, and this isn’t very shiny or overly sticky, which I love. In fact, I love a lot of shades from this line, but this newest Pillow Talk Intense shade which is a deep berry rose is a beautiful step up and a great addition not only to this line but to the whole Pillow Talk collection as well. This shade may be too intense for Spring and Summer, but this will be very perfect for Fall and Winter.

Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Face Palette Review + Swatch

charlotte tilbury glowgasm palette

 

I’ve been looking into some face palettes lately and the Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm (4 shades: 75 USD) is probably one of the most beautiful face palettes released this year, so far. I was really stoked the first time I saw it, both by the packaging and the shade of each pan. It has a very luxe and elegant appeal, along with some quirky embossment of each shade. Speaking of shades, there 4 shades on this palette. Two of them are highlighters, there’s one bronzer, and a somewhat shimmery rose lilac (unicorn-ish) blush.

At first, I wasn’t quite sure whether Glowgasm palette I should get, either the Lightgasm or the Lovegasm? A lot of folks find the Lightgasm palette to be too light and too subtle for them. So when I went to Norstrom, I had the palette for warm-dark skin tone in mind, which is the Lovegasm. Upon swatching the two palettes, I find the Lovegasm to be too pigmented for me. Its blush shade made me look like I got sunburned, it was definitely too much for my face. However, I find the shades to be really pretty. When I tried the Lightgasm palette, I felt like it somehow suited well on my face.

Since then, I’ve been incorporating the Lightgasm palette for most of my makeup routine. I did find it to be a little too subtle on my face. Indoor, it’s almost unnoticeable on my skin, but it’s quite buildable enough to pack the colors on the cheeks, as well as all over the face. I really love the rosy unicorn blush (#3) of this particular palette, and it’s really stunning to look at. At first swipe, it kinda appears like a light shimmer on my cheeks, but I can pack it with a couple more swipes using my Ulta itbrush in #101

Once outdoor, I could see the effect of this palette on my face. It’s subtle but noticeable enough to emphasize and highlight the bony prominences of my face. The nice thing is that you can always use this wet if ever you’d prefer to add more blush and glow on the face.

This palette is also good as eyeshadows, and probably much better if applied wet. So, if you’re looking for a subtle face palette with an au-naturel effect and you have a very-fair to light skintone then you might like the Lightgasm one. You might also be able to pull it off if you have a light-medium skintone. If you’re medium, then you might be better off with the Lovegasm palette. Overall, the new Glowgasm palette is so pretty and definitely a head-turner, however, it’s pricey, so you may wanna carefully examine the swatches online or in-store to find out which palette would suit you best if ever you’re planning to buy one.

 

The Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Palette is currently available at Nordstrom, charlottetilbury.com, Sephora, and Bergdorf Goodman
