Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick

Hello Beauties! I hope you're all doing well and looking forward to the weekend. A little while ago I won a Twitter competition run by the lovely Laura from Laurzrah blog, and the prize was this little beauty! Can you believe it?! I was so surprised because I haven't won anything like this before! I did a little jump when it arrived in the post, in the gorgeous Charlotte Tilbury packaging and with a cute note from Laura inside. I know this has been reviewed a lot lately as it is such a popular shade, but I couldn't resist photographing and reviewing it for the blog!

Charlotte Tilbury's Pillow Talk lipstick was created after the success and overwhelming popularity of the now iconic Pillow Talk Lip Cheat lip liner. I have used the lip liner a lot since Chris bought it for me last year for my birthday; it is just a perfect nude colour that works with a lot of different shades. I can see why Charlotte brought out the lipstick, as there is something about the colour of the lip liner that I haven't found anywhere else. I was really excited to try it and see what it was like in relation to the lip liner and whether or not it had the same gorgeous shade.

The Pillow Talk lipstick is one of the Matte Revolution lipsticks, which has to be one of my favourite matte formulas. They give that lovely matte finish without being drying in the slightest, which is great for me as I really hate the feeling of dry lips. I have talked before about how Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks always seem to make my lips look fuller than they are, and this works the same magic as the others! I also really love the shape of the Matte Revolution lipsticks; the squared off tip makes it so easy to apply. 

The colour is a nude pink, and of course very similar to the Pillow Talk lip liner. It is a darker pink than I would normally wear but I actually really love it! Since wearing Secret Salma a bit more I have got into some darker pinks lately, so this is perfect for me. The shade of the lipstick and the lip liner seem pretty much identical to me, which is impressive considering the lip liner is so well loved. It would be a shame if they weren't quite the same tone, but CT has done a really good job of making sure the colour stays true to the original lip liner.

Please excuse my exceptionally pasty arm with fake tan patches (obviously took these pictures on tanning day haha!), but you can see the gorgeous colour of the lipstick. The pink tone is really neutral, it isn't too mauvey but not too peachy either, so it really does look like 'your lips but better'. 

I am SO happy to have this in my collection, and I was even happier to have won Laura's Twitter competition! Thank you so much Laura, I love it :) Have you tried Pillow Talk? What did you think?
