I took advantage of the Charlotte Tilbury Mystery Boxes over cyber weekend, as the value was seriously impressive, and the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Diamonds Lipstick was just one of the items in one of the three mystery boxes.
I bought all three of the Mystery Boxes, so I have lots of amazing Charlotte Tilbury reviews coming your way over the next few months…
Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Diamonds Lipstick
The Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Diamonds Lipstick launched last summer, and was one of two Diamonds Lipsticks, with Pillow Talk being the lighter of the two shades, whereas Lucky Diamonds was a deeper toner for darker skin tones.
Whenever there’s a Tilbury Mystery Box deal or a Mystery Beauty Secrets offer, the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Diamonds Lipstick is always included.
If I had to make a guess, it’d be because it perhaps hasn’t sold well, so the brand might have a lot of excess stock, or they’re just trying to generate hype on one of their lesser known products. Charlotte Tilbury makes some really lovely lip products, so I was excited to try the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Diamonds Lipstick as it did look very pretty in the online swatches I’d seen.
The packaging, like all Charlotte Tilbury products, is stunning. With slim, rose gold metallic casing. This is a considerably slimmer lipstick than their KISSING or Matte Revolution Lipsticks. You get a minuscule amount of product too; just 1.8g of product, where’s the KISSING Lipsticks give you 3.5g of product – for the same price.
I received the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Diamonds Lipstick in the shade Pillow Talk Diamonds, which is described as being a sheer rose-pink lipstick with a dreamy veil of golden sparkle.
“Charlotte’s universally-loved, award-winning, best-selling Pillow Talk lipstick is now adorned with diamonds! It’s the secret to lips that dazzle and delight as they play with the light!
Pillow Talk Diamonds leaves a wash of sheer pink, sparkling golden, Pillow Talk magic in its path! Adorn your lips in a diamond-like, glittering finish that POPS, for the most glamourous, bejewelled lips of your life.”
Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks are super pigmented regardless of the formula (Hot Lips, Matte Revolution and KISSING), however the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Diamonds Lipstick isn’t really a lipstick. Instead it’s more of a lip topper, which I guess is why you get such a small amount of product compared to one of their standard lipsticks.
This swatch was done repeatedly maybe six or seven times, and there’s maybe a very sheer hint of pink, but it’s almost completely just sparkle and shimmer.
It’s the kind of lipstick you can layer over the top of matte lip colours if you feel like your lips look a little flat. The Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Diamonds Lipstick doesn’t have the consistency of a lipstick either. Instead, it’s a little thinner which lends itself well for layering over other lip colours.
In all honesty, the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Diamonds Lipstick isn’t a product I’d ever have purchased, and not is it something I’d repurchase either. I would rather use a shimmery lip gloss if I wanted a little sparkle or sheen, but I’m happy I was able to give it a try thanks to the Black Friday mystery boxes.
