This universally flattering lipstick sells every two minutes — and it's on sale

The quest for the perfect lipstick is a relatable challenge. You can search far and wide for that one elusive color, but how do you find the best shade for you? Turns out there's actually a universal answer — a lipstick that’s rocking the beauty world right now for its widespread appeal. It promises to look good on everyone — all skin tones, all lip shapes, all ages and all styles. It's Charlotte Tilbury's Pillow Talk — and the lip kit featuring the original Pillow Talk shade, lip liner and lip gloss is currently on sale for $62 (was $92) during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

Charlotte Tilbury's three-piece set features the universally loved Pillow Talk hue — it includes everything you need for a classic nude-pink lip.

The shade, which comes from the brilliant British makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury, launched in 2017 and has since become a sensation; Pillow Talk is so popular, in fact, that a tube of it sells every two minutes. With this set, you'll get a full-size Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk, a full-size Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pillow Talk and a full-size Lip Jewel in Pillow Talk. For the perfect lip, apply the Lip Cheat lip liner first, followed by the Matte Revolution lipstick (make sure to apply it straight from the applicator for fuller, wider lips). Finally, use the Lip Jewel to add a gloss.

What makes Pillow Talk universally flattering? It’s formulated for people of all ages and skin tones, with nourishing orchid extract, triglycerides, and a unique blend of oils and waxes. The upshot? It enhances, rather than masks, your natural lip color. And it plays up the pout—because of the way it reflects light, Pillow Talk makes lips look fuller.

The woman behind the lip shades speaks to the impact of the right soft hue: “When you apply a flattering, nuanced nude shade,” says Charlotte Tilbury, “it’s empowering and never overwhelming...the ultimate sultry, supermodel seduction.”

Customers can't stop raving about this much-loved beauty product. "I’m not one that wears lipstick, but I read so many reviews about Pillow Talk and I was curious to try it. I have thin lips and others claimed you can over draw your lips with this shade and it looks natural," said one fan. "They were right — you can! The texture of the liner and lipstick is smooth, and it last a long time."

Another five-star reviewer agreed: "This color is everything! It’s almost exactly what I expected. It’s super silky in application and has a lovely matte finish."

Your job is easy: Hit 'add to bag' ASAP — and watch your whole face light up.

This universally-flattering shade needs to be in your makeup bag, stat.
