Have you seen Charlotte Tilbury's new Pillow Talk Collection? Everyone is invited to her Pillow Talk Party! I went her party and picked up the new Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Multi-glow Dream Light highlighter palette.
The Sephora website says this is “A light-reflecting, multi-use highlighter with four shades in one for an all-over, glass-like glow in Charlotte’s iconic Pillow Talk hue.”
Packaging Of The Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Multi-Glow Dream Light Palette
The packaging is absolutely stunning. This beautiful highlighter is encased in a soft-toned mother-of-pearl pink compact. The pink case has a mirror inside. Also the powder has a breathtaking quilted pattern on it. There are four shades inside this compact and you swirl your blush to get a bit of all the colors. Additionally, I sometimes make my own custom color by taking more of one shade or the other.
Formula Of The Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Multi-Glow Dream Light Palette
This powder gives you the light-reflecting shine of a liquid with the easy-to-use power of a powder for a smoothing, soft-focus, blurring finish. Firstly, it has Silky mica which offers a soft gliding effect allowing easy application for a silky-smooth finish. Smoothing polymers that in effect give you a soft-focus effect. It also has finely milled pearls with transparent silky glow pearl filter for a long-lasting glow without the glitter. Lastly the rich emollient oils coat the pearl pigments to optimize spreadability and enhance for a soft-feel finish. Equally important is the fact that this is a cruelty free product.

- Dream Light – Pillow Talk warm pink highlighter
I am just wowed by the beautiful packaging. The mother of pearl compact is so luxurious. When I opened the compact the powders inside looked even more breathtaking. The quilted pattern is so lovely. I could just stare at it for hours. Getting back to the review now. I swirl my brush over the four colors lightly, tap off the excess and then apply it to the highpoints of my face. A little bit goes a long way. On my medium skin this highlighter looks more golden than pink. I am happy with that. Since I have warm yellow undertones, a gold highlighter suits me better than a pink one. In fact I can also use this as a very shimmery blush. If I use it this way I add it on top of a peach brown blush that is not shimmery and it looks like a glowy blush.
In addition I have used the lightest shade as an inner corner highlight and it worked well. The brand does mention you can use the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Multi-Glow Palette on your eyes too. Swatches definitely don't do this highlighter any justice.
Also the 2nd stripe and the 4th stripe have some sort of an overspray that will go away in a couple of uses. I am usually not a huge fan of overspray's and am happy how the colors look after the intense glittery bits are gone.
- Beautiful packaging and cruelty free product
- Can be used on face and eyes
- Provides a beautiful glow
- If you collect highlighters, you may have similar shades in your collection. But the packaging and the beautiful product make this worth buying
