Charlotte's Lip Cheat in 'Pillow Talk' is a lip liner that never leaves my make-up bag and that has replaced my collection of nude lipsticks. Here is why I love it.
|(Excuse the cup of tea, this is a blog post conducted with a hangover)|
First things first, the formula is beautiful. It is majorly creamy and glides seamlessly on to the lips meaning that you can create a soft line that is reminiscent of your natural lip line - hence the name 'lip cheat'. Pillow Talk is a shade that sums up the phrase 'my lips but better' despite the phrase itself being beyond annoying it is undoubtedly true. It is the perfect combo of pink/mauve/brown that really compliments my particular skin tone. Although, this does not mean it wouldn't suit other skin tones. It would look amazing on pale girls with a lighter shade put on the centre of the lips. Plus, on darker skin tones it would look just as great paired with a nude gloss. Take a look at a swatch.
Why buy? Despite Charlotte Tilbury being a high-end luxury brand this lip liner is priced at £16, which in my opinion is a steal. As well as being a reasonable price, there are no other lip liners like these on the market - not as creamy or blendable. It also adds to the whole effect that every time I apply it I cannot help bursting out into song, which may be influenced by a certain commercial pop artist.
Charlotte Tilbury is available in her flagship store in Covent Garden and department stores including Selfridges and Harvey Nichols.
All hail Charlotte!
