We need to talk about Pillow Talk. If you’re not yet up to speed, the universally flattering shade is makeup artist brand Charlotte Tilbury’s most stunning creations, a cult-status staple for many due to the versatility of what Charlotte describes as a “delicate rose-blush-skin hue”. It’s beautiful on the eyes, across the cheeks, and swiped onto the lips.
And while the dreamy shade first started out as a humble lips liner, it has since expanded into a full-fledged Pillow Talk collection, of eyeshadow palettes, liquid highlighters, and plush matte lipsticks. This year, we’re getting three new items too — the Multi-Glow highlighter, an eyeshadow quad, and a mascara in a unique berry-brown.
The campaign stars include industry icons such as Kate Moss, Jourdan Dunn and Twiggy, as well as rising beauty stars from Fernando Casablancas to Ceval Omar. As for the makeup items, the limited edition Pillow Talk Multi-Glow is set to be the item we want on our vanity tables. The highlighter is housed in a lovely mother-of-pearl compact, for one, and is stamped with a plush pattern that mimics a pillow. Cute!

What’s especially great though is that the powder formula, a familiar medium for many, goes on incredibly soft and, yet, gives us a light-reflecting shine one would expect from a liquid product. The glow is real, but also out-of-this-world! As with all Charlotte Tilbury products, the glitter and pearl elements are always so finely-milled, they give a soft effect on skin. The Multi-Glow also arrives in two shades; Romance Light is a cool shade for a nudey-pink glow, while Dream Light complements warmer complexions.
The other two products added to the family are the Pillow Talk Push Up Lashes! Mascara, in a berry-brown Dream Pop! shade, an alternative to black, which then creates softer-looking lashes, or a tone-on-tone look if you’re reaching for the other items in the collection.
The Pillow Talk Dreams Luxury Palette rounds off the new launches, and introduces a Super Pop shade, a shimmering rosebud hue, that’s all about that disco-light sparkle. This is then paired with a pearly rose-gold, dusky rose, and matte berry-brown, which all go on like a dream.
