Charlotte Tilbury | *NEW* Pillow Talk Collection: Review and Swatches
Last week, I shared part I of my review of the new Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Collection (read it here). Today, I am back with part II of my review, featuring all the new lip products from the expansion. Everyone is going gaga over the new Pillow Talk Medium and Pillow Talk Intense Lipsticks but there's so much more to discover! To see some swatches and read my thoughts, click......
Charlotte Tilbury | Lip Cheat Lip Liner in "Pillow Talk", "Pillow Talk Medium" & "Pillow Talk Intense": Review and Swatches
Charlotte Tilbury | Pillow Talk Lip Cheats, Lip Lustre & Superstar Lips
Charlotte Tilbury | Lip Cheat Lip Liner (C$27 for 1.2 g):
Now available in two new shades ("Pillow Talk Medium" and "Pillow Talk Intense") to complement the two new lipstick shades, the Charlotte Lip Cheat is a creamy smooth lip liner designed to define the lips and extend the wear of lipsticks. The silky formulation is not super pigmented so the application is fairly fool-proof. However, the waterproof finish does feel a bit drying so whatever you put on top better replenish the moisture. The original "Pillow Talk" shade is a soft peach nude and it pairs well with the Pillow Talk Lipstick. "Pillow Talk Medium" is a touch dustier in comparison but it's much lighter than the Pillow Talk Medium Lipstick. However, the Lip Cheat still provides a good base for the lipstick. Last but not least is "Pillow Talk Intense", which is a rather stark medium brown. I feel that this is an odd pairing for the rosy brown Pillow Talk Intense Lipstick, which by itself is already very pigmented and really doesn't require a liner.

Charlotte Tilbury |  Lip Lustre Lip Lacquer in "Pillow Talk" (C$28 for 3.5 ml):
A high-shine liquid lipstick formulated with conditioning lotus flower extract, the Lip Lustre Lip Lacquer in "Pillow Talk" is a soft beige pink nude. Although it swatched quite pink on the arm, the color applied rather pale. Because it's much lighter than my own lip color, the finish is rather streaky as the pigments settled into fine lines. The formulation is also on the heavier side with a slightly tacky, glossy finish. Although the Pillow Talk Lip Lustre gives a plumped Kylie-esque pout, the color and formulation are not really my cup of tea.

Charlotte Tilbury | Superstar Lips in "Pillow Talk" (C$39 for 1.8 g):
Formulated with nourishing oils and plumping hyaluronic acid and peptides, the Superstar Lips "Pillow Talk" is a gorgeous nude pink sheer lipstick with a super luscious and shiny finish. The color is flattering and natural and the formulation is lightweight, hydrating, and non-sticky. The wear time is not very impressive but it's definitely a lip color that I would take pleasure in re-applying. The formulation actually reminds me quite a bit of the Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector (reviewed here) so if you are a fan of those, you will love this one!

Charlotte Tilbury | Matte Revolution Lipstick in "Pillow Talk" & "Pillow Talk Medium" (C$39 CAD for 3.5 g):
Swatching a little pinker than it wears on the lips, the original Matte Revolution Lipstick in "Pillow Talk" is a soft peachy nude. The formulation is creamy and buildable and the finish has a soft matte effect. Infused with antioxidant-rich extracts from lipstick tree and orchid, the Matte Revolution Lipstick is not drying but also not very hydrating. The new shade "Pillow Talk Medium" is a muted rose with a brown undertone. The formulation is similar to that of the original but because this is a slightly darker color, the pigmentation feels a bit patchier in comparison. However, the color is buildable so it's still easy to obtain an even finish. As someone who's not a fan of nude lips, this muted rose fits my taste much better.

Charlotte Tilbury | K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in "Pillow Talk Intense" (C$39 for 3.5g):
Interestingly, the darkest Pillow Talk Lipstick shade, "Pillow Talk Intense", is actually available in the K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick formulation instead of the Matte Revolution formulation. A deeper, browner, and less rosy version of "Pillow Talk Medium", this shade is super creamy and pigmented. There is a very subtle sprinkling of fine golden shimmers but the effect is mostly invisible on the lips. The formulation is also much more nourishing and comfortable but the color definitely suits a medium to dark skin tone unless you want to revive the 90s' brown lipstick trend.

Here's a comparison of the five different Pillow Talk lip colors. My personal favorite is hands-down the Pillow Talk Superstar Lips, both in terms of formulation and color! If you are interested in the Pillow Talk trend, the Superstar Lips is the perfect introduction. Which of these Pillow Talk lip products is your favorite? Share with me in the comments below!
