Charlotte Tilbury Modern Matte Pillow Talk Lipstick REVIEW and swatches

I've been an increasing fan of Charlotte Tilbury's products. I first started with her Multi miracle glow cleansing balm, which got me to checking out her makeup products. One of her most famous items is the pillow talk lipcheat. I don't really use lipliners so I never purchased it, but when I caught wind of this being offered in lipstick form, I paid close attention for Nordstrom's release. This lipstick is offered through her site, but I personally wanted to go into stores to swatch it first.

Charlotte Tilbury pillow talk lipstick, $35

Pillow Talk is a shade that is universally flattering on all skin tones, which is why it is so popular. I tried on this lipstick and it is an awesome 'my lips but better' shade. It is matte, but doesn't feel drying or wash me out. I especially love how simple it is and does not require much touch ups. The tube that it sits in is gorgeous. The shiny copper/gold color with the ripples make it look expensive but also retro.

Application/texture: Easily glides on and sits nicely on the lips. Does not feel drying or sticky. I almost forget I have it on sometimes!
Staying power: This lasts 3 hours on me.
Scent: It has a sweet vanilla scent, but goes away quickly.
Pigmentation: It is fairly pigmented. Though it is a nude-ish shade, it shows up well on my pigmented lips.
Overall: It is a great product at $35 because it goes with everything. It is flattering on all skin tones and does not feel drying despite being a matte. It is also very easy to apply and does not need a lot of fuss. I think I found my go-to lipstick of all time!
