HOW TO LOOK AND FEEL HOT IN 5 SECONDS WITH YOUR PERFECT LIPSTICK SHADE

BUT LIKE ARE YOU READY FOR THE LIPSTICK OF YOUR DREAMS?

It’s so yummy & perfect and makes your lips look all pillow-y & plump. BIGGER LIPS TOO!

Looks good on everyone.

OH, YES. Guess what guys? This lipstick has passed every test.

How, you ask, can one say that if we’re all different skin tones? I know, I know- it’s weird! It’s not normal that a lipstick looks good on EVERYONE? But this one just does. Well at least I’ve tried it on 2309 of my friends & they’re all in love. I even ::tried:: to get Michael to test it out because he is 1/4 Japanese & 1/4 Italian!! His skin tone is super pretty so I wanted to double-check you know? Sure he looked at me like I was crazy. But what can you do? I MEAN YES I KNOW I AM CRAZY.

BUT CRAZY over Pillow Talk by Charlotte Tilbury.

Charlotte is always quoted saying: “lipstick is happiness in a tube!”

And this shade is most CERTAINLY happiness in a tube.

First off, it’s a lip cheat lipstick. What does that mean? Well, simple. It means you can fake your lips to appear bigger than they actually are. YES, you can FAKE IT. Completely. In 5 seconds. I love a good ‘fake it until you make it’ moment, don’t you?

The story behind this lipstick is it was initially a lip liner ( I have the lip liner too because it’s so good but I feel like that’s another post ).

Wait, I’ll let Charlotte tell the story because she talks about this particular shade on multiple blogs. She says: “My friends have been BEGGING me for years to turn my CULT classic Lip Cheat Lip Liner into a lipstick, so I am thrilled to introduce the iconic shade in a magic Matte Revolution finish! This dreamy nude pink is the ultimate celebrity & supermodel lip color for naturally fuller, wider lips. The color enhances the natural hue of your lips, so you can CHEAT a perfect pillow-y pout in seconds. Enriched with soothing orchid & Lipstick Tree extracts, lips appear fuller and wider, with a softer, more youthful feel. Finished with an angled square tip, apply straight from the bullet for the best lips of your life!”

You get the idea.

You should know too that it totally creates the illusion of fuller, wider lips. TRICKERY!!!!!! I love- don’t you?    

The only thing: it’s $34 dollars.

Which is highly annoying right? BECAUSE $34 DOLLARS FOR A LIPSTICK IS FUCKING EXPENSIVE.

…HOWEVER, I need you to try it first before you judge! Yeah, we hate the price, I know! But IT IS WORTH IT- not leading you on here. Don’t believe me? Go into Nordstrom yourself & try it. Whatever. I promise you won’t leave empty-handed though. I’m telling you IT’S GOLD. In fact, this paraben-free lipstick is very much TSC-Approved.

I have been wearing it literally everyday.

I do a few things here. The first is when I’m working out I’ll just line my lips with Pillow Talk lip liner & put Burt’s Bees pink grapefruit lip balm over the situation. The second option is if I have meetings- I’ll just do the lipstick, no liner ( well, sometimes liner too- depends on the day ). THEN for a nighttime WHAM BAM THANK YOU MA’AM MOMENT, I do this NARS lip pencil in ‘Do Me Baby’, lined with Pillow Talk, & then top it off with Smashbox’s INSTA-MATTE LIPSTICK TRANSFORMER. I LOVE ALL THREE.

The liner deserves its own special shout out too- I have 3. It’s known in the industry as a LIFE-SAVER. Basically it’s “lip liner to re-shape & re-size your lips.” The liner & lipstick pretty much do the same thing, it just depends on what you’re going for. I got the kit where it comes together- what can I say? When I like something, I like something.

I SHOULD MENTION THIS ISN’T THAT CRUSTY, DRY KIND OF LIPSTICK THAT MAKES YOUR LIPS LOOK UN-BECOMING. This is your lips, ON STEROIDS- K?

( If your lips are ever feeling crusty- I have this HACK THAT WORKS WONDERS. Dry lips begone! ).

Whether you use the lip liner or the lipstick, the color just makes most people look pretty with pouty lips because it’s kind of a lip colored lipstick- so there’s nothing dramatic happening here, just a bigger lip. I love this lipstick & if there are any haters out there- I NEED TO KNOW WHY? WHY? WHY? WHY? Telling you this shade really looks good on everyone I think. There’s something about it. The tube is also gold which very much looks cute in a lipstick stand.

OMIGOD, I hope I’ve convinced you to try it because I personally can’t get enough.

Ok, I’ve clearly exhausted the subject…but nothing new there! I love to go overboard.

Anyway, next Friday night SLAP A BUNCH OF PILLOW TALK ON, grab a sky-high heel, & silently thank me while you sip a skinny margarita ( straw please! ). Your lips will be pillow-y & oh-so kissable.

MWAH, MWAH, MWAH- hope you had a good weekend, lauryn x

P.S. should I try to find a dupe for this? I will be on the lookout if you’re interested in a dupe?

    I saw my photo in this post and immediately was so sad because I worried one of my faves – you – used it without permission or credit but I am so shocked and thankful that you credited me haha. These days I see my photos stolen on IG all the time and it’s so annoying. Thanks for keeping it real, Lauryn! ???

    I can’t wait to check this out! I love a great nude, everyday lip. I’m a huge fan of the NARS Morocco liner Turkish Delight gloss combo — def recommend!

    Have you tried Revlon Matte Ultra HD lip color in Seduction? It’s a pretty good dupe. Very creamy, doesn’t dry out lips and really stays on. You don’t need a liner with it either.
