Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the Charlotte Tilbury Cheek To Chic Blusher in the shade Pillow Talk.
Another CT product and this time we are talking about the blush. I definitely have mixed opinions about it.
It reminds me of the Marc Jacobs Flash & Fantasy Air Blush which was one of my favourite blush but it got discontinued. The shade is quite similar and to be honest this is the shade of blush I usually go for so I was all over this one and I love me a fancy blush.
You can get it from Sephora for 40$.
On the site, it’s described as a nude pink. It has two shades: a satin dark nude on the outer part (swish) and a shimmery ivory pink on the inner one (glow).
The packaging is stunning: so sleek and fancy. It comes in a pink box and the blush itself it’s the classic maroon with golden details. I’m obsessed with it.
It has a mirror on the inside.
PIGMENTATION & FORMULA
The formula is quite soft and smooth especially when you swatch it, it has a medium pigmentation. You definitely have to build up the colour which as I said in the past is my personal preference with face products.
It doesn’t have any fallout and it’s not too chalky.
You have to be careful with the glow part though, if you swirl in it too much it tends to make the blush too shiny and enhance pores. I wish it was smaller because it’s not shiny enough to be a full on highlighter, but it’s too shiny to be a blush unless you like very shimmery ones.
It is not super pigmented but you can layer it. I tend to use mostly the swish part with just a bit of the glow shimmer.
On me, it lasts around 8 hours before starting to fade.

I really like this blush, it looks like you are naturally flushed, I prefer when blushes are less pigmented because it helps to avoid the clown effect. I don’t particularly love how shimmery it is but you can work around it. The lasting power is amazing. The colour is perfect for every day and it will look good with any kind of look. If you don’t mind to splurge for these kinds of products and don’t mind a shimmery blush I recommend it.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
