Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Luxury Palette of Pops + Lip Lustre

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk

Charlotte Tilbury added two more products to her Pillow Talk family! She has a new Luxury Palette of Pops in Pillow Talk in an all shimmer eyeshadow quad. I’m also beyond thrilled she finally launched her Lip Lustre Lip Gloss individually. It was originally launched in an exclusive trio from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (reviewed and swatched here). It’s now available individually at Sephora and also in a few bundles on her website.

I’ve been such a long-time fan of her Pillow Talk Lip Cheat Lip Pencil and Matte Revolution Lipstick I thought I’d do an updated roundup of all the Pillow Talk products I have. To date I have 7 of the 8 Pillow Talk products. I do not have the Pillow Talk Diamonds – based on what I saw from other swatches I thought it would be too glittery for me. What I have rounded up today:


Pillow Talk Lip Products

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lips

I’m starting with the lip products. I really love her Pillow Talk Lip Cheat and Matte Revolution Lipsticks for the perfect everyday neutral rose pink. They are among the few lip products I’ve used up and repurchased several times (I just recently bought fresh new tubes). The Lip Cheat is a matte opaque rose, it can be a little dry if you apply all over the lips so I usually apply a lip primer or balm underneath first. My favorite is the MAC Prep + Prime Lip for a base. It lasts a long time since it adheres well to the lips and for me it goes with a wide range of lip colors (I love layering Fenty Gloss Bomb on top).

Her Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk is one of my most-worn lip colors. It’s a luminous matte so it doesn’t make the lips look dry or flat. I know a number of you have mentioned the undertone doesn’t work for your complexion in which case I’d recommend you check out Tom Ford Indian Rose (not as cool-toned) or Charlotte Tilbury Super Cindy (warmer) instead.

The Superstar Lips in Pillow Talk is a beautiful glossy rose. It has a moisturizing feel and beautiful shine but I could not give it a 100% glowing review because of the amount they give you for the price! It’s significantly smaller than her other lipsticks but priced the same. Formula is excellent and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed if you love glossy lush lipsticks. On me the Superstar Lips pulls deeper and more rosy than the Matte Revolution. Previously reviewed here.

The Lip Lustre in Pillow Talk is in the same color family as her gloss and lipstick but pulls lighter in color. It’s opaque and full coverage on my lips. Easy to blend, stays put, and has a soft vanilla/plastic scent. It’s not unpleasant and doesn’t taste bad – it’s actually subtle so after a few minutes I don’t notice it anymore. Review + swatches also here.

Pillow Talk Cheek to Chic Blush

The Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blush is among my favorites for a soft natural luminous glow. I own almost all of the colors. Pillow Talk has a soft neutral to warm rose glow on the skin. On me it’s very soft with a subtle glow. If you are one who feel like you cannot wear that glaring highlight or shimmer that’s super popular these days but don’t want to always do a matte blush, her Cheek to Chic Blushes are the best.

Pillow Talk Eyeshadow Quads Luxury Palette vs Luxury Palette of Pops

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Eyeshadow Quads

The rosy warm tone eye look has been super popular for quite some time now and brands show no sign of slowing down with the new launches. I’ve embraced the warm eye look with a few palettes but in general still really like a good neutral eye. The Pillow Talk Eyeshadow Quad was a miss for me on its own. I found it too pink for my complexion although when combined with other palettes I can make it work. It has a shimmering pale pink, a matte pink, gold-pink glitter and deeper warm rose brown matte. Texture-wise I found the mattes a bit dry and chalky although if I add an emollient cream eyeshadow underneath it’s not too much of a problem. Review + eye look here.

The new Pillow Talk Luxury Palette of Pops looks phenomenal in the pan. It has the most beautiful look to it in the palette. I usually have fun swatching these because it’s often a surprise to see what they look like swatched on the skin. The four shades are super glittery and sparkly. For a single eye look I can make it work but for me it looks like more of a party palette. I think it’s nice as an enhancer palette on top of other shadows to mix and match. It’s beautiful but all 4 glitters on the eye at once is a little much for me. There is fall out if you apply on dry lids or with a brush. I recommend applying over a creamy base or patting on with fingers to help it stick better. It has a sparkly pale rose, a sparkly soft pink, a sparkly warm copper and a shimmering warm red bronze.

If these aren’t your cup of tea (whether it’s too glittery or too warm), you might want to check out her other holiday launches. She just launched a cooler tone Luxury Palette of Pops in Celestial Eyes along with a new Instant Look Palette in Gorgeous, Glowing Beauty. I’m debating whether or not to order them.

Overall I think her Lip Lustre Lip Gloss in Pillow Talk is the best new addition to her line. I really love all the other lip products and wear them on a regular basis. I think the Lip Pencil is excellent for a good rose lip and goes with lots of other lipsticks and glosses. The blush is a nice soft rose although if you’re darker in skintone than me I suspect it might be too close to your skin tone in which case you might want to check out the color The Climax (deeper in color). Nothing would have stopped me from buying the new eyeshadow palette but I do think it’s super glittery and most likely not for everyone. For me it’s most likely going to be used as an enhancer with other palettes.

You can find Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk products out now. The two latest additions Luxury Palette of Pops and Lip Lustre are currently available at Sephora and Charlotte Tilbury. I suspect they will trickle out to other retailers soon. The rest of the line is available at all Charlotte Tilbury counters.

Have you tried any of the Pillow Talk Colors? Which ones and what did you think?
