I rarely buy high end beauty products, I think the first product I purchased back in the day (aka Celtic Tiger) was Dior’s Airflash foundation, I thought the fact you sprayed your foundation on would make the make up process a bit quicker for me (this was pre-makeup obsession!!) and let me make you wince a bit more…I didn’t have a brush to blend it out…I used my fingers! Its true in 2007 the only makeup brush I owned was the one I got free in my Rimmel Quad!! It looked like this…
Fast forward 8 years later after the birth of my 5th baby and my beauty addiction was settling in nicely. Every time I popped into the chemist for “shower gel” the hubby began to sweat, he knew I wasn’t going to come out with a small paper bag, he knew within his heart the next time he saw me emerge from the pharmacy I would have have handles on my paper bag and maybe I would have two of them, he often said he could hear our debit card cry and my loyalty card laugh! He had a word with Santa and he kindly left me a very fat gift card for Brown Thomas! He thought (poor hubby) that I wouldn’t have to pop into the chemist as much if I had expensive makeup…I know, I know.
I have bought some other high end brands since then and I would recommend some of them but a product came into my life completely by accident last February and I adore it, so much so that I ration it!
I was in Dublin and I was walking past Arnotts when I spotted the Charlotte Tilbury stand, I wasn’t up to shop but curiosity got the better of me and I walked out of there with a Lip Cheat and Legendary Brows! It was Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk.
Its just a liner you may say, but its not. It completely changes the shape and look of my lips. I have naturally thin lips and I had I have to be careful not to over line because I look fekin ridiculous to be honest.
Pillow talk goes with most of my nude lippies but to be honest if I am wearing it I usually lash it all over my lips!
The consistency is so creamy and not at all dry on the lips. The colour is a beautiful blush pink nude that compliments my skin tone. I say my skin tone because the beauty of this liner is, the colour changes on each different set of lips! I had thought about posting an image of it on my lips but honestly the colour is so unique to each person it would be pointless!
I have been teaming my pillow talk with MAC’s Mehr lately and it is a match made in heaven for me. The raspberry tones in Mehr makes my green eyes pop and the liner gives Mehr the perfect canvas. This is an image of this combo…
If I had to give Pillow Talk a bad point and I really don’t want to!! It would be the consistency it is very soft and you would only get (if your lucky) 3 applications before you need to pare it. But I can live with this as the buttery creaminess on my lips makes up for this! Now you see this is the reason why it is rationed!!
As I said the Liner was €22 in Arnotts and I am definitely going to purchase the Pillow Talk Matte Revolution Lipstick soon, I just hope it lives up to the liner! You can purchase both from the Charlotte Tilbury website and if you do let me know what you think…I am thinking you will love it!!
Til next time,
