Oh be still my heart! I finally got my hands on the Pillow Talk Eye Palette from Charlotte Tilbury! I can’t tell you how many times I crept their site waiting for an update on it!
I’ve heard wonderful things about the Pillow Talk Lip products. I haven’t tried them out myself though the colors scream wearable everyday nude pink which is what I gravitate towards when shopping for lip products. However, I kinda have a million nude pink lip products… but a Pillow Talk eye palette? That intrigued me.
The Pillow Talk Luxury Eye Palette from Charlotte Tilbury is a BEAUTIFUL quad of rosy pink golden pink shades–these shades make the perfect wearable daily daytime makeup–truly they do. I’m not used to wearing rose gold colors on my eyes but these shades made my brown eyes pop.
I have and will always be a smokey eye kinda gal. I love to smoke out the outer corners–it’s a look that I think is most becoming on with my dark eyes and hair. But as you can see in the photo below–I really couldn’t achieve a true smokey eye with this palette. I built up the color as much as I could. I was a bit disappointed that I couldn’t build up the darkest shade as much as I would have liked to yet I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the way these rosy gold shades look against my dark eyes–it’s truly a nice change! I think this is going to be a palette I grab for more and more during the Spring & Summer months. I paired this look with NYX’s Euro Trash Matte Lipstick which is my favorite mid-tone pinky brown lipstick. I think I read somewhere that Euro Trash was a dupe for Pillow Talk which is why I even picked it up in the first place.
All in all–the Pillow Talk eye palette is expensive. The palette retails for $53 but there is something about the Charlotte Tilbury brand… It’s glamorous, luxurious and alluring. It keeps you wanting more.
The packaging is gorgeous, mimicking the styles of cosmetics that you would have seen in the height of the Golden Age, 1940’s Old Hollywood. I have the Luxury Eye Palette in The Sophisticate, the Filmstar Bronze & Glow, and the Bar of Gold Highlighter–anytime I wear any of those products, I feel a bit more put together.
