Anything that Charlotte Tilbury brings out turns to gold. That woman is a magician and if you’re into beauty, you’ll know exactly what I mean.
Although the Charlotte Tilbury make up range is relatively new, being just six years old, it’s one of the most lusted after make up brands. And for good reason too.
Everything from the range that I’ve tried; I’ve loved. From the Filmstar Bronze & Glow, to the Kim KW lipstick that I wore on my wedding day, some of the CT products are must haves in my make up bag.
So it’s probably no surprise, that I was SO excited to hear about the Pillow Talk collection.
A dreamy pink range which is all based around Charlotte’s iconic Pillow Talk lip liner. Inside the collection is an eye palette, a blush/highlighter, and a lipstick all in tones of dusky pink.
If a Victoria’s Secret model was a make up collection, this is what she’d look like.
Fun Fact: Pillow Talk liner was used on the VS models for the latest fashion show.
Now, I’m not usually a pink make up kinda girl. You know me, I love a brown smokey eye and a nude lipstick, but I was SO excited to try the Pillow Talk collection out.
I was so lucky to be gifted the Pillow Talk collection, and let me tell you, it is BEAUTIFUL.
So, the Pillow Talk collection is very sought after. When it was first announced, did you know that over 25,000 people signed up to the wait list. It keeps selling out, but it’s back- well for now.
So let’s talk about the products more in-depth;
We’re going to start with the Luxury Palette in Pillow Talk: the eye palette consists of 4 shades, a shimmer highlight, glitter, a matte dusky pink and a soft matte brown. Now this is a lot warmer than I usually go for on the eyes but I did like it. I do feel like I need a slightly darker brown for the crease, but remember I am a self-confessed smokey eye addict.
I did also find the glitter to be a little irritating on my eyes but this was at the end of the day. I used all four shades, and finished off the look with some black liner, the Charlotte Tilbury liner in Gunmetal in my waterline and some false lashes (because I’m mourning the loss of my lash extensions and feel like a potato without them haha)
Verdict : Very pretty, but probably go for another palette from the range if you prefer a smokey eye/cooler tones. The Golden Goddess palette will probably be more up your street if so!
Next is the Cheek to Chic in Pillow Talk: a two-tone blush and highlighter, which is a dusky pink and adds a real pretty glow to your cheeks. I wasn’t sure how much I’d like this, as I’m not really a blush fan, but I have been very pleasantly surprised and dare I say it – be getting back into blush!
I tend to swirl this onto my cheeks very gently, but it gives you a fresh look that I think is very similar to the kinda glow we’re used to seeing on the Victoria’s Secret Models.
Verdict: Gorgeous for perking up your complexion, also check out the Filmstar Bronze and glow for the ultimate bronzy glowy look!
Finally, let’s talk about the Matte Revolution in Pillow Talk: this lipstick is what I was most excited about. The colour is described as your lips but better. Perfect for paring with the Pillow Talk lip liber to give you a gorgeous pout.
This is a really pretty colour, very natural and perfect for day to-day. I tend to pop a little gloss over the top, as I do prefer a glossy lip and this is like the perfect lip look.
I feel this lipstick is one of those that everyone would love, all ages, it’s one of those universal ones. I can see it becoming a staple of mine that’s for sure.
Verdict : My fave from the pillow talk collection, perfect natural nude shade.
All in all, the Pillow Talk collection is seriously dreamy. It gives you altogether a very fresh girly look, I feel it’s all very Victoria’s Secret angel esque, and that is totally okay with me.
I’d love to know if you’ve tried anything from the Pillow Talk collection? Let me know what you thought in the comments 🙂
