The love Team MECCA has for Charlotte Tilbury lip products (especially Matte Revolution lipstick in ‘Pillow Talk’ – and its matching cheek and eye iterations) is no secret.

And we’re not the only ones. We’re fairly certain that if you were to look into the kit of any celebrity makeup artist – or watch any A-list #GRWM – you’d spy at least one from Tilbury’s iconic collection.

It seems like these lip products were always destined for the limelight, with Charlotte Tilbury creating ‘Pillow Talk’ – the white T-shirt of makeup shades – before a fashion show: “[She mixed] different lip colours to create a pink shade that looks flattering on every skin tone,” explains Charlotte Tilbury Pro Artist Kirstie Murphy. (It’s also her personal favourite lip look now that cool-toned makeup has returned; she pairs the Lip Cheat liner with the matching Matte Revolution lipstick on a daily basis.

As Charlotte Tilbury has found global (and viral) love, so too has their lip range, evolving into a rainbow of reds, pinks and nudes in every finish imaginable – from glosses to satins, balms to mattes, liners to lip plumpers.

Curious to discover which other products pair perfectly together, we hit the MECCA shop floor and asked our team for their picks, too. Here is what they told us…

Skin Specialist Michelle says this duo works for any and every occasion: “I love the Happikiss range as it has the look and feel of a gloss but the colour payoff of a bullet lipstick.”

“It feels genuinely comfortable on the lips,” she adds, raving about how she can wear it from day to night: “‘Enchanting Kiss’ adds a pop of colour to my more natural look without making it look out of place.”

Store Host Keisha says this is her favourite red lip of all time, telling us, “It looks so beautiful on a range of skin tones and although it does have a matte finish, it has such a comfortable wear and feel on the lips (not to mention the staying power!).”

Keisha insists this “empowering” shade not be reserved solely for special occasions, either: “Wearing a red lip can feel super scary at times, but the beauty of these lipsticks is that they can be sheered out a little bit for more of a low-key look, or built up for a more ‘Hollywood’ finish.”

Fragrance Specialist Seren says ‘Pillow Talk’ was her gateway into Charlotte Tilbury’s other lip products, and to her current shade of choice: ‘Walk of No Shame’.

This modern take on deep rose is the perfect accessory for special occasions, with Seren explaining, “It really pulls a look together and is a super easy way to instantly make your makeup more glamorous.”

She adds, “This duo is my absolute favourite because it is the perfect combination of a bold pop of colour and a light, glossy finish. Best of both worlds!”

This pairing is Makeup Specialist Pauline’s all-time favourite, giving the ultimate glam, pouty look: “[It’s] suitable for every occasion, whether it be a date, work or even just to take selfies,” she explains.

It’s also the combination she most often applies to customers, giving “the perfect mix between a brown and pinky nude which compliments so many complexions.”
