Review of Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk Matte Revolution lipstick: opinions, price and pictures. Is it worth buying?
After hearing about it for a long time, I purchased the iconic Matte Revolution lipstick in the Pillow Talk shade, which helped make the Charlotte Tilbury brand so famous.
In fact, the Pillow Talk shade is known for being one of the most versatile lipsticks, a shade that looks good on every skin type.
But is this really the case? I’ll tell you about my experience in this honest review.
Also, we will talk about the formula, the different shades, the durability, the packaging and the ingredients. Finally, we will find out if it is worth buying the Pillow Talk Matte Revolution lipstick, or not.
Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick Review
I have to say that I often have a hard time finding lipsticks that have a shade that looks good with my complexion, which is fair and with warm undertones.
And so, when I first saw the Pillow Talk color live, I was a bit puzzled.
Was this the shade everyone was talking so enthusiastically about? It didn’t seem to be very enticing: a kind of brown, uninviting.
But after trying it the first time, I had to reconsider it. Pillow Talk is in fact a nude pink shade that, once applied to the lips, looks very beautiful.
In this article you’ll also find the video where I try the Pillow Talk lipstick for the first time.
The lipstick is matte and has a pleasant formulation. Even after several hours, the lipstick holds up pretty well to food and drink.
It goes well with both light and heavy makeup.
As for the packaging, I find it elegant. I like the gold case.
Another positive aspect of this lipstick is the square shape of the tip, which allows for precise application, even without the need to use a lip pencil.
Finally, here is the really outstanding feature of this shade: it suits all complexion types!
In fact, it has an excellent balance of warm and cool tones and changes slightly depending on the complexion of the wearer.
So if we have predominantly warm tones, the color of the lipstick will appear more on the pinkish side while if we have cool tones it will have a more neutral connotation.
On me, in fact, it tends toward pink.
Now let’s talk about the downsides of the Pillow Talk lipstick. First, the price: it is not a cheap product. Is it worth it? It is definitely a very good lipstick, but the price remains a bit high in my opinion.
There is to say, however, that the Pillow Talk shade is really super versatile, so I can easily use it to create make ups suitable for different occasions.
After a few hours it remains a bit dry on the lips, so I often apply a clear lip balm over it, which provides hydration and nourishment.
Despite this, would I buy it again? Definitely.

Well, we have come to the end of this review of Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution lipstick, in the shade Pillow Talk Original.
I must say that after an initial hesitation (as you can see from the unboxing on Youtube), it has been true love with this lipstick and in particular with this shade.
