Review: Charlotte Tilbury ‘Pillow Talk’ Lipstick


Charlotte Tilbury’s ‘Pillow Talk’ lipstick is one of the most iconic products to come from the brand. One is sold every two minutes! Nearly all of my friends and family have it but I have to admit I was probably a little late to the party. It was only when my sister text me to say she’d ordered it that I rushed to order myself one too. What’s it like? Well, it’s true what they say. The lipstick is so natural and it compliments most skin tones. It’s also super moisturising and long lasting. My sister is also a huge fan of hers.

Pillow Talk

I mentioned on my stories a while back that during lockdown, I’ve been trialling new products by ordering either travel size or trying to get my hands on a free sample (Charlotte Tilbury offer two free samples with purchases and so do a few other brands). It’s a better way to try before you invest in full size. I’m super pleased with my purchase (travel size Pillow Talk comes with the lip liner too).

‘Pillow Talk’ lipsticks come in three shades (not one as I initially thought). It’s available in OriginalMedium and Intense (you can buy all three in one go here). You can buy the full size Original shade liner and lipstick (currently 10% off here) or travel size lipstick and liner for £20 (as I did, here).


Overall this is a really great lipstick for everyday wear. It glides on and mistakes can easily be rectified. In the pics I’m only wearing the lipstick but I do wear the liner when I’m having an online meeting (and when we’re eventually allowed out for drinks). I’ve quite a wide smile so rather than using the liner to create lip volume I use it to stop the lipstick from smudging and keep the line more precise. I’ve almost used the travel size up (Mia got hold of it and thought it was a crayon) so I’ll definitely be investing in the full size (and hiding it from my two year old). The ‘Pillow Talk’ collection has grown and I’ve now got a bit of a Wishlist going on! I can’t wait to try the Dreamy Eye Kit and the Cheek to Chic powder blush.
