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.Β 

 

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 Instant Look In A Palette, Gorgeous Glowing Beauty Review & Swatches

During my busy travels, I found myself constantly needing to downsize the amount of makeup I packed. Not only for space-saving reasons, but also because whenever I travel, I tend to not travel for pleasure. Most of the time, I’m running around doing errands, so I barely have any moment to put some colors on my face. Yep, the struggle is real. Add that with jet lag, and that’s when I start to fumble around, sleepy, disoriented, trying to decide which eyeshadow would look best (given the number of minutes I have), and that’s if I haven’t lost them somewhere already.

So, I made it a promise to myself to pack light and to carry beauty products that are more compact. You know, the all-in-one type. Luckily, with the Sephora Holiday Bonus Sale that happened a while ago, I was able to score some compacts that are made to be for full-face makeup. One of them is this Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In A Palette in Gorgeous Glowing Beauty (75 USD). A lot of us fell in love with the Instant Look In A Palette since the time it was first released because it allows us to create an almost full-face makeup (sans lipstick, brow enhancer, and eyeliner) in a small handy palette.Β

The shade for this holiday season is the limited-edition Gorgeous Glowing Beauty. It’s got a combination of matte and shimmery shades for the face, cheeks, and eyes. The compact itself is cruelty-free and it has five shades at 0.07 oz each, and two shades at 0.21 oz each.

This palette will definitely be overused pretty soon. I love the whole look of it and I can truly get a complete makeup look with just this handy compact. Also, I can create different looks with this, going from a natural look to a nighttime glam. The shades may seem to be not as pigmented at first glance, but it is definitely pigmented upon swatching. The colors do somewhat vary in tone once applied to the skin. For example, the #6 Cheek Pop blusher is definitely much more pigmented once on the cheeks, and the #1 Eye Brighten seems to be quite shimmery and has a slight pinkish tone that tends to blend with my skin, so, with that, I use the #7 Face Highlight as my inner eye brightener. The #2 Eye Enhance is definitely well pigmented and enough to define the eyes or even create a smokey eye look. The #5 Cheek Swish seems to slightly blend with my skin tone as well and is quite close to the #1 Eye Brighten, so it doesn’t show as a blush on me, but it’s more of a cheek highlighter which I like to put on top of the #6 Cheek Pop for a nice subtle glow.

Overall, the look of this palette can go from natural to very glam. The tones are earthy yet dramatic, beautiful, and totally wearable. The shades stay for the whole day on my skin without using a primer, and there are no fallouts from the eyeshadows. This is one of those palettes that you’ll be constantly reaching for, and it’s also ideal for traveling, which is just what I need.

 

This palette is limited-edition and is still currently available at Nordstrom and at charlottetilbury.com
