I bought it on CultBeauty after a thorough online research and my match is spot-on. The shade Fair 1 is perfect for my NC15 skin. At first it may look a little too pale, but then it oxidizes slightly and matches my skin colour well. It’s truly neutral. Not yellow and not pink. The coverage is medium. It feels very pleasant upon application: like a luxe, creamy moisturizer, although the consistency is rather runny. It doesn’t have that siliconey feeling of evaporating in a nanosecond, before you finish spreading it on your face (I’m talking to you, Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue). It evens out my skin tone and looks very natural, not flat, giving me that „my skin but better” effect. Did not break me out. I also haven’t noticed any strong, unpleasant scent, that other reviewers pointed out. I surely will repurchase this when I finish my first tube.

Finally I own it. After years of lurking and reading the reviews I have the famous Pillow Talk in my hands/lips. My hesitation was not for the price (I own even more expensive lipsticks, yes Tom Ford, I am talking about you...) but for the impossibiity to try it in person as I am in Italy and as of today Tilbury is not sold at any counters here (but Sephora is said to stock it soon) so I had to buy online. Sight unseen (yep, relying only via online swathces).Please take a good note of the following: this is NOT that universally flattering shade suiting everyone. It looked the perfect MLBB shade in the pics, sadly it is NOT.It runs way darker in the pics and is way dark in the tube compared to what you get on your lips.It looks sallow and washes me out dramatically. Please note I am blonde, blue eyes, fair/medium skin (I'd say NW15-20 with yellow undertones), my lips are not pigmeneted at all. I would expect a "wash out" if I had pigmened lips, but that's not my case.Fact is I can only wear it with a darker base or a darker lipliner, and it looks nice. But not alone.I think it has some blue undertone that clashes with my yellow undertones. I can't really see any yellow or beige tones in this rosy shade. It is more a pale rosey mauve.The formula is nice, creamy and not drying, but not outstanding, it does not last long hours as other matte shades do. Formula and quality wise, it is very very similar to some Kiko lippies I own, swatched side by side and on the lips (note that Kiko retails for a fraction of the Tilbury price...). I suspect they are made in the same facility, as Tilbury lippies are manufactured in Italy and Kiko (=italian brand) owns one of the largest makeup production facilites in northern Italy.Packaging is super luxury though and this may in part justify the price.To sum up: I was planning to buy other shades and the Pillow talk lip liner... but I will not unless I am able to swatch in person. That's my recommendation: don't buy sight unseen as you might get disappointed.

This is my first review ever and this says a lot!! I got this as a sample first and OMG - this is absolutely life changing!! My skin is oily-combination (and probably severely dehydrated) and in the winter months it flakes on my cheeks and around my nostrils and temples. When I first used it I couldn’t believe how plump and healthy my skin looked in the morning! I did not realize (at first) that this was actually „magic“ and thought that I might have just one of these rare „good skin days“. Well... the same miracle happened five days in a row - this is how long this tiny sachet lasted me... I just realized what had made the whole difference when the sample was gone and I had gone back to my normal routine. So I went back to the CT counter to ask for another sample - it really WAS the magic night cream that had made the difference. YES, it IS sticky! YES - the smell IS something you have to get used to. YES - your significant other might not like it. YES, it IS expensive- VERY EXPENSIVE!! There are so many reasons not to splurge on it! BUT: the key to this is to use only the tiniest amount, otherwise it will stick to your hair/ pillows etc. As I told you above, the sample lasted me for FIVE days, this means that the 50ml will probably last me about a year!!
Don’t expect it to completely sink in before the next morning... Maybe I’m not offended by this because I got used to using Korean Sleeping Packs during my skincare journey - they are much heavier!
This product really makes a difference!! I tried so hard to keep myself from buying it, but I finally gave in... and I‘m so happy I did!!

Legendary lashes indeed... wear this to a party and 20 years later, people will still remember how your cheeks and brow bone were bedecked by mascara smears. Possibly the most expensive way of getting racoon eyes ever, anything good this does is far outweighed by how awful it looks half an hour after applying. Yes, it makes eyelashes look great when first put on, but what is that worth when it doesn't actually STAY on them? I hate the smell, too. I could deal with that if it looked good, but it doesn't. Glad I only got the sample size! I would cry actual tears if I paid full price for this... CT, what were you thinking?!

I got a small one of these in Too Bad I’m Bad from Sephora and it’s lovely, but not worth the price. Comparable to the Nyx cream mattes.
