My Favorite Charlotte Tilbury Lipsticks.

Charlotte Tilbury: Bitch Perfect, Pillow Talk, Sunset Lover | The Stripe

It’s no secret that I absolutely ADORE Charlotte Tilbury’s lipsticks. For me, it’s all about the colors.

A lot of my favorite lipstick brands just don’t do nude very well. They’ll have beautiful bright reds and pinks, but the nudes tend to be a little too brown or blue for me. I really like a more natural looking rosy nude and Charlotte Tilbury just does them SO SO well. Pretty pinky nudes that look like your natural lip color, just better! I started with Bitch Perfect a few years ago. It’s the perfect no lipstick lipstick. It’s just a really good pinky nude (see it swatched below). From there, I branched out (this year) to Pillow Talk after seeing Lauryn from The Skinny Confidential rave and rave about it. As you can see from the lipsticks, this is my most worn (though in fairness, I am on my second tube of Bitch Perfect). Pillow Talk is a lot like Bitch Perfect but a little bit deeper and a little bit bluer. But not too blue. I’m Goldilocks with my lipsticks!

Recently, Charlotte Tilbury sent me their newest:

Sunset Lover. What’s fun about this (besides the fact that on their website you can see it on EVERY skin tone) is that it was actually named by Charlotte Tilbury customers! It’s so pretty… a peachy pink (which looks so fab with a tan).

  1. I’ve heard so many good things about Charlotte Tilbury lippies! I wish they were cheaper, though.

    • They are amazing! For what it’s worth, the tube lasts me forever, but I understand the hesitation on price.

    I’m addicted to Amazing Grace. I have one for at home and one for my bag. It’s perfect for work. I will have to try Pillow Talk and Sunset Lover. The only lip pencil I wear, when I wear lip pencil, is Pink Venus.
    Your arm looks so nice and tan!

  6. Agreed; I absolutely love her lipsticks (I even had one of her lead artists do my wedding makeup because I knew it had to be her lipstick, haha!). For some reason Pillow Talk looks good on literally everyone but me (on me it looks like the awful brown I used to wear in high school in the 90s, and I’m too old to re-live that…), but for nudes I love Valentine (which she releases as a limited edition every February) – it’s the perfect pale pinky nude – and also Kim KW – it’s a bit too pale on it’s own but works so perfectly as a base under other lipsticks or gloss or to make brights a little more subtle (it takes your natural pink down a notch so that everything is more true to the colour in the bullet). And Red Carpet Red and Carina’s Love are the *best* true reds around.
