A cult lipstick beloved by A-listers and royals alike has proved so popular it has inspired its own makeup range.
Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk – a universally flattering nude shade loved by everyone from Alexa Chung to Mariah Carey – is set to be extended into eye and cheek products for the first time next month.
The bestselling beauty product was worn by Kitty Spencer at the 2018 royal wedding and is a firm red carpet favourite among stars including Gwyneth Paltrow, Celine Dion and JK Rowling.
It comprises a matte lipstick in barely-there pink and a matching lip liner, costing £24 and £16 respectively, with the pencil selling every six seconds globally.
Describing it as her ‘backstage secret weapon’, Charlotte Tilbury (pictured with Nicole Kidman) said the product has ‘everything you need for fuller, re-defined pout

Launching on September 6th, the new range is set to fly off shelves and comprises an eye shadow and cheek palette.
The Cheek to Chic will cost £30 and the Luxury Palette is priced at £39, both available exclusively on Charlotte Tilbury’s official website.
The lip liner is such a global success that one of the products sells every six seconds around the world.
Describing it as her ‘backstage secret weapon’, Charlotte Tilbury has previously described it as ‘everything you need for fuller, re-defined pout’.
‘This nude beige lip liner is perfect for pairing with your everyday nude lip,’ she writes on the brand’s website.
The lipstick is designed to glide seamlessly onto the lips, is waterproof to ensure no feathering or transferring all day – and lasts up to six hours without smudging or fading.

‘I’ve purchased this before so it speaks for itself, the creamiest long lasting lip liner, great because it never breaks in the middle of use,’ another reviewer said (pictured: Emma Roberts)

‘Just enough pink with a sprinkle of brown keeping it the perfect nude [sic],’ one reviewer posted (pictured: the Pillow Talk shade)
And despite looking one colour in the packaging, Pillow Talk gives a soft, subtle wash of colour that varies according to the wearer.
For instance, last year three women wore it to the Met Ball, and Pillow Talk looked completely different on Emma Roberts, Gwyneth Paltrow and Alexa Chung.
Reviews online of Charlotte’s Pillow Talk product are almost universally effusive.
‘Just enough pink with a sprinkle of brown keeping it the perfect nude [sic],’ one reviewer posted, alongside a five star rating.
Recently, Charlotte Tilbury (pictured with Natasha Oakley) revealed the best-selling beauty products in Australia, which is the brand’s third largest market
‘I’ve purchased this before so it speaks for itself, the creamiest long lasting lip liner, great because it never breaks in the middle of use unlike other brands [sic],’ another posted.
‘I inherited my grandmother’s very thin lips and light complexion. Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat allows me to extend my lips just enough to be visible without looking like seven year old me drew them on. Life changing!,’ one further reviewer added.
Elsewhere, Amal Clooney, Olivia Palermo, Salma Hayek, Olivia Culpo, Nicole Kidman and Lady Emma Roberts are all fans of Pillow Talk.
But if you want to invest in the liner, you’ll have to be quick – as the product and its lipstick counterpart often have to be re-stocked regularly, due to the speed at which they sell out.
