A Love Story: Pillow Talk

8:30 am

Guys, I have something to admit to you all. I think I have an addiction.  An addiction with Charlotte Tilbury. It all started with Francisca May and her blog post all about Pillow Talk. The moment I read her post, I knew I had to get my hands on this coveted lip stick before it was too late. The beautiful looking nude shade just seemed like the perfect lipstick, how could I not get it?! And so the love affair begins...


On Wednesday 8th of February, it arrived. On the outside, it looked so simple. Just a brown box. Oh, but once you open it, the real beauty comes out. The beautiful burgundy paper, with a crisp white envelope on top. An envelope full of samples. Lipstick samples, face cream, foundation. So many samples. And the samples are always where it's at! Except this time, the samples weren't the hero in this box. No, the hero was still to come. 

Charlotte Talk Pillow Talk (Pink Nude) 
A little burgundy box  house a beautiful rose gold tube. A lipstick. The most beautiful lipstick. Pillow Talk. It was love at first sight, and that is coming from someone who doesn't believe in love at first sight. But honestly, how could anyone not be in love the moment they saw this beautiful lipstick. It is truly the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.






 

Somehow I believe this is just the start of a beautiful whirlwind romance. It will take much self control to not purchase every Charlotte Tilbury product after having this lipstick turn up at my home. It is seriously beautiful.

Charlotte Tilbury Samples - Foundation, Magic Cream, Pillow Talk



Charlotte Tilbury Pencil Sharpener Lipstick Sample
I have been so impressed with my first order through Charlotte Tilbury. Not only was it super quick (only took a week!) but the order came with three lipstick samples and four other samples, which included their clay mask, a foundation and the magic cream. All of which I really wanted to try! 

So if you haven't worked out by my small love story, I picked up the Pillow Talk lipstick. I also picked up the Pencil Sharpener because my current one was eating my lipstick pencils alive, and it had to end. I am in love with my two purchases. The sharpener is great, and not too expensive ($10) and the lipstick is amazing and will certainly become my every day shade. I was worried the matte formula would be too drying, but it's so creamy and wears so comfortably. I was also worried it would be too pink, because I really don't like wearing pink. I just don't think pink suits my skin tone and I feel too girly! But it is the perfect mix of pink and nude. 




It is safe to say my experience with Charlotte Tilbury, so far, has been amazing!! I am in love with the packaging and the products and the amount of samples (I am a sucker for free samples with orders...like the biggest sucker there is!) If you have been contemplating getting this shade, or making a purchase with Charlotte Tilbury, my only comment is 'what the hell are you waiting for!'
