I wasn’t going to post this at first as the Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic blush in Pillow Talk – one of the new additions to her Pillow Talk collection and joining the cult classic lipliner and Matte Revolution lippie of the same name – sold out immediately after its recent launch, so it didn’t seem helpful.  Annoying even.
