Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Swatches | Pillow Talk, Kim K.W & Valentine

When Charlotte Tilbury announces two new, limited edition Spring lipsticks, you know that the makeup community will pretty much be head over heels for it. Whilst the majority have been heart-eyed over the new Pillow Talk lipstick, which matches the already cult lip liner, I fell for the romantic pink vibes of Valentine.

It's a beautiful, soft, petal pink shade which is really pretty and feminine, and totally wearable. The swatches make it look a little rosier than it translates on the lips, where it sits a little milkier. The CT website has a great photo comparison of the lipstick on many different skin tones, which is so helpful if you're undecided (take a peek here). I adore the formula of Charlotte's K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipsticks which feel lovely and creamy, have great pigmentation and give a slight glossy finish whilst still be fairly long wearing. It's such a dreamy shade and I feel like I should sprout Victoria's Secret wings and sit in a bed of fluffy white clouds whilst wearing this (lol).

I thought it would be helpful to compare it to two other similar CT lip products that I own,  Kim K.W lipstick and  Pillow Talk lip liner. You can see that it's quite similar to Kim K.W but much more pink than peach. and it is a lot lighter than Pillow Talk, which does run quite a dark rosey shade on my fair skin. I almost wish I'd thought to swatch it next to MAC Creme Cup as I think they are very similar in colour, with Creme Cup being a little milkier and sheerer. Even though I'm always drawn to this type of lipstick shade, I still feel like I've got something a little different to any other colours I own (they're all different okay ssh!).

So the answer to my title is a blatant, ridiculously obvious, YES girl you need this. Catch it whilst you can!

xoxo

    1. Pillow Talk is definitely a much deeper rosey shade compared to Valentine, so you 100% need both ;-) xo
