Pillow Talk Medium and Intense Swatches

I bought the mini-sets for Pillow Talk Medium and Pillow Talk Intense, and I’ve been meaning to swatch them for awhile! I decided to combine them into one post since they appeared very similar to me. Each set came with a mini lip liner, too.

These little sets are a great way to try two Charlotte Tilbury products for $25. Each set comes with a mini lipstick and a mini lip cheat liner. You can choose from Pillow Talk original, Pillow Talk Medium, and Pillow Talk Intense. These mini-sets are available at Sephora (Purchase here) and Charlotte Tilbury (Purchase here).

Charlotte Tilbury Comparisons

This first set of swatches is all Charlotte Tilbury products. Note that Pillow Talk Medium is in the Matte Revolution formula and Pillow Talk Intense is in the KISSING formula which is shiny/glossy. The Pillow Talk Medium lip cheat is pretty much the same shade as Medium and Intense lipsticks.

The Pillow Talk Intense Lip Cheat however is extremely brown and much darker, it really sticks out in the swatches. I think the camera/photo is making it look a tad bit darker than it was in real life, but not much, I was truly surprised at how dark this shade is compared to its matching lipstick.

Bond Girl (now MI Kiss) is an extremely close shade and finish to Pillow Talk Medium, I could barely tell them apart. Bond Girl is ever so slightly more berry and less brown.

Dupes from Other Brands

Next set of swatches is similar shades (dupes) from other brands. I’ve arranged these with Pillow Talk Medium first and Pillow Talk Intense Last then the other brands in between. No lip liners in this set. The shades Passion, Real, Rum Raisin, and Brave look like the closest dupes to me.
