Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few months, you’ll have probably heard of the two cult beauty favourites; Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk and the Pixi Double Cleanse. They’re both incredible products that everyone seems to be loving so I thought I’d give them a whirl and see what all the fuss was about.
I’ve been a huge fan of Charlotte Tilbury products for a long time now, especially her lipsticks, so when Pillow Talk was released I had my eye on it almost immediately. However, for some [ridiculous] reason, I didn’t buy it straight away and it sold out pretty quickly, so I knew that as soon as it came back in stock, I had to get my hands on that baby.
And I can definitely tell you that it does live up to the hype. When I first tried it on I was a little sceptical; I didn’t think that the colour suited me very well, but once I’d had a play around with my makeup and created the perfect look, I knew I was in love. The pigmentation is just wonderful and the colour is really build-able; it’s definitely a “my lips but better” lipstick. Although I didn’t find that it lasted *quite* as long as my Lost Cherry lipstick, (another one of my all-time favourites) I still absolutely love it. It’s the perfect everyday lipstick and I would 100% recommend purchasing it before it runs out of stock again! At a price tag of £24, it’s certainly not on the budget end of the scale but I’ve found that Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks last a LONG time, so I know that it was money well spent.
This two-in-one jar contains one side of a solid cleansing oil and the other side features a cleansing cream. Double cleansing seems to have made a huge breakthrough in the beauty industry recently, which is why this product came at just the right time. The solid cleansing oil is perfect for removing your makeup and thoroughly cleansing your face of all oils, grease and dirt. Although it feels incredibly smooth on your skin, I don’t think it’s quite the *best* cleanser that I’ve ever used, it doesn’t quite remove every last trace of mascara. However, the cleansing cream is great for leaving your skin feeling very soft and supple. I have to say, although I do like this cleanser, it’s definitely not my favourite, (my fave is the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish if you’re interested…) and I think that the £24 price tag is quite a lot for this product.
Call me an enabler but I definitely think that you should go out and buy the Pillow Talk lipstick ;).
Have you tried either of these products? What do you think of them? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter @imjustagirl_16.
