Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Lustre ($22) is a new shade that launched in the Lip Lustre Lipgloss Collection that will be a permanent addition but it was previously available in a Nordstrom Set.. I got my hands on it after purchasing the A Pop of Pillow Talk Magic Lip & Eye Kit that included the gloss Palette of Pops Luxury Eyeshadow Palette. I already Pillow Talk Lipstick and I thought this would be a nice addition to my collection of Pillow Talk items!
On with the review and swatches my friends!
Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Lustre arrived in a square tube with a regular slanted sponge applicator that’s 0.11 oz in size and $22. It’s very small at this price but you might be willing to indulge if you love the shade. It captures the essence of the Pillow Talk Lipstick brilliantly. Sometimes taking a solid lipstick and putting into a lipgloss or liquid lipstick formula the color can get changed up and that does happen a little bit here as the shade is a smidge lighter than the original lipstick color but all in all, not too bad a replication. Pillow Talk is a perfect nude pink that should look great on a variety of skin tones. The shade is a medium pink nude that runs warmer which I believe makes it easier to wear.
This formula is a liquid lipstick even though it is marked as a lacquer and it contains no flavor nor fragrance. It isn’t sticky nor tacky but it wears for a solid five hours. It applies a LITTLE patchy initially so I do need to smooth over the color a time or two to get the color looking flawless. It has semi-satiny finish that had a hint of shine with a creamy formula that was lightly hydrating. It gives my lips a soft, pillow-y appearance and the shade works fantastic with other items of the same shade like the Pillow Talk Blush and Pillow Talk Eyeshadow Palette. It’s one of those pinks that looks great paired up with other pink shades!
The formula is rather great aside from the initial patchiness. I thought it wore really long, the pigment is great, and it’s quite comfortable and barely there on my lips. But damn, the price…! I got a tiny discount because I purchased it in the set but still, it’s rather costly at this price and size!
But hey, I guess if you like the formula you like the formula and if it works and it looks great that luxury price tag and the smaller size might not bug ya!
Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Lustre is available now.
Where to buy
Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Lustre is 0.11 oz, $22, and is a just recently launched shade being added to the permanent Lip Lustre Collection. It’s a gorgeous medium nude pink with a creamy formula that’s lightly hydrating that has a semi-satiny finish with a thin bit of shine. It feels a bit balmy on my lips but not sticky or tacky and it wears for a solid five hours. The performance, pigment, and application (initially I had a bit of patchiness but going over it a few times helped give me a smooth finish) all a high score from me but the price and size are a sore spot as this is a small amount of product for the price! That being said, I have to remind myself this is a luxury item.
