Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Collection

I have quite a sentimental relationship with Charlotte Tilbury products, because my Nanna used to swear by the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream, and at the end of 2018 she sadly had a very bad stroke, and even in the hospital she was asking for her Magic Cream to be put on for her. She sadly died a few months later, but whenever I see the Magic Cream online or in shops, it always makes me smile. I personally haven't yet tried it, but one day I am going to save up and order myself one, because my Nanna tried a lot of beauty products in her time and she said that was the best moisturiser ever.
However, today I am going to be focusing on the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk collection, which is one of the most iconic collections in the beauty world. Charlotte's Pillow Talk collection is getting bigger and bigger due to the popularity of it, and I have been lucky enough to receive four products from the range - the Cheek To Chic Swish & Glow Blusher, the Collagen Lip Bath, the Lip Cheat Lip Liner and the Beauty Light Wand Highlighter. 

The Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Cheek To Chic Swish & Glow Blusher (£30.00) comes in a beautiful soft pink outer box and then the compact itself is the classic Charlotte Tilbury dark burgundy and gold colourway. Once you open the compact up, there is a mirror on the inside of the lid and then the dual blush shades. Pillow Talk Intense is a deep rosy pink blush shade, and you get the warmer shade on the outside and then a lighter, slightly shimmery shade in the centre. You can of course use one or the other, and then swirl them both together to create a unique shade. As I mentioned, there is a slight shimmer within this blush, but instead of giving you a highlighter look, it gives a very subtle and pretty glow to the skin. The formula is slightly sheer, which is best with a blush, and if you want a bolder look, you can build it up by layering, but as I have quite light skin, I like to apply this with a light hand. I find the formula very lightweight and comfortable on the skin, and I don't feel like I have heavy makeup on, which is important to me, as I dislike feeling like I am caked in makeup. All in all, this is a high quality blush that is going to add a healthy glowy colour to the cheeks.
Next up is the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Cheat Re-Shape & Re-Size Lip Liner (£17.00). There are three shade options within the Pillow Talk collection - Original, Medium and Intense and here I have the Medium shade. I have very fine lips and so a lip liner can work a treat for me, and even if you have a fuller lip, wearing a lip liner can really help to define the lips and helps to keep your lip colour on throughout the day. Again, the packaging is that pretty pink colour and the liner itself has a gorgeous gold covering. Lip Cheat has a gorgeously soft and smooth texture and so you don't need to go in hard on the delicate lip line area, a light touch will work wonders, due to the pigmentation of the formula. Due to the lip liner being so creamy and comfortable, I would wear this all over the lips on its own as I found that it lasts a really good amount of time whilst on the lips, much longer than some lipsticks! Pillow Talk Medium is a warm berry pink shade and so it is suitable for all year round and will suit the majority of skin tones.
When I first saw the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Collagen Lip Bath (£25.00) released, I knew I needed it, because I love anything to do with baths (Okay, I know this isn't technically to do with having a bath) and because I have those fine lips I mentioned, I need a little collagen and plumping action. This one is in the original nude-pink Pillow Talk shade and comes in a see-through and gold tube. The applicator is a sponge applicator and is in the shape of a heart, and if that isn't enough to make you absolutely 'need' this product, then I don't know what is. In all seriousness, the Lip Bath features a wide range of super-nourishing and plumping ingredients that make your lips feel soft, protected, fuller and with a hint of colour as soon as you apply it. This is more of a gloss than a liquid lipstick, and so even though there is some colour with each application, you aren't going to be getting a full coverage, but I really enjoy that as I find it more wearable on more occasions. Some of the key ingredients include Marine Collagen which helps to hydrate, Mustard Sprout Extract to define the contours of the lips, resulting in a fuller appearance, Coconut Oil to soften and nourish, Peppermint Oil for a fresh flavour, and many more.
My final product from the collection is the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand in the shade Pillow Talk (£29.00). Pillow Talk is the original nude-pink, but you can get the Pillow Talk Medium too. The Beauty Light Wand is one of the easiest makeup products to use. I have known some older girls in my life that were unsure of highlighters, and I recommend this each and every time because of how easy and natural, yet beautifully glowy this is to use. The Highlighter comes in a rose gold tube, and then you switch the sponge applicator to 'On' and gently squeeze the product out of the tube and then onto the sponge and you can then apply straight onto the skin. Whether you are wanting it on the cheeks, cheekbones, tip of the nose, underneath the brows and not forgetting a dab on the Cupid's bow for a fuller-effect on the lips, this is super quick and easy. Pillow Talk is a gorgeous light rose gold shade and the pigmentation of colour and the soft, silky texture makes it super comfortable to wear and really easy to blend into the skin. The result is the most gorgeous sheen to the skin, without looking like a disco ball, but still enhancing that natural beauty. As with the Collagen Lip Bath, the Beauty Light Wand also contains a wealth of amazing ingredients, such as Silica which gives the highlighter a rich velvety texture but also has oil-absorbing properties, so will be great for those with an oilier skin, as well as Lindera Extract which hydrates the skin and keeps it looking radiant and smooth. One thing I noticed about this highlighter is that even though it is a liquid, it doesn't budge or start to move around the face later on in the day, and gives such a beautiful effect.
