Emma Roberts, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Alexa Chung Have This Lip Colour in Common

Victoria Hoff


Finding a lipstick shade that always flatters can feel like a nearly impossible task—I liken it to the constant search for a truly clump-free mascara, a cake-free concealer, or a brow product that doesn't scream Look! I'm wearing brow pencil! But before you start trying to identify the colour of your nipple—a potential hack for finding your perfect shade—save yourself the neck strain and know that makeup queen Charlotte Tilbury has long since addressed this problem. In fact, one of Tilbury's lip pencil shades has been so historically popular among the A-list set that, by popular demand, she recently released it as a full-fledged lipstick.

Pillow Talk is a dusty rose that looks phenomenal across different skin tones—it's essentially a pink that doubles as a neutral. As a lip pencil, it's a great shade for cheating a fuller pout. As such, it just might be the most popular lip product in Hollywood: No fewer than four celebs (Olivia Culpo, Gwyneth Paltrow, Emma Roberts, and Alexa Chung) wore it to this year's Met Gala alone. Meanwhile, both Nicole Kidman and Salma Hayek donned the shade at the Oscars.

An editorial director, Faith, can report that it indeed looks as lovely in person as it does in photos—and for proof, consider this casual image of Faith with Charlotte Tilbury herself.
