[productsample/affiliatelink] Apparently a Matte Revolution Pillow Talk lipstick sells every two minutes (as does the Lip Cheat Liner) across the world. That’s a lot of lipsticks and when it comes to the numbers game, highly significant in the face of so much recent competition for this brand.
Obviously, when you’re on to a good thing, keep going, and that’s exactly what the brand has done with the Palette of Pops – a gleaming, shimmering eye quad with rich colours and a glowing finish. As you can see, there’s also a limited edition Lip Lustre (called Pillow Talk) that offers a glossy alternative to matte.
If you like glimmering lids, there’s really nothing not to like here – from a pearly pink pop to a deep red-bronze shade, you can really pick your colour intensity level from the same colour family.
I find it hard to wear nude lips that are this kind of pale, creamy tone – it’s a shade that looks gorgeous on very pale or very dark tones but sometimes doesn’t quite work for olive tones like me who need something with just a bit more brown in it.
The texture is silky and smooth and the shine is high without being vinyl and it has a vanilla scent if you like a bit of sweetness from your lip products. It’s £19.
I’ve done two lots of swatches – one in normal day light and one slightly darker when the light actually hits the shadows head-on which is when they spring to life. The palette is £42 which is a lot for a quad but I don’t think that will stop it selling crazily well! You can find them both HERE.
