While many beauty brands have leapt on board the diversity train in recent years, the industry still has a long way to go before it is fully inclusive.
In the meantime, make-up maestro Charlotte Tilbury is addressing the issue head-on with her new collection of Pillow Talk lipsticks.
Loved by supermodels and celebrities alike, Pillow Talk was originally conceived to be universally flattering, and the new Medium and Instense shades of lip liners and lipsticks have been developed to flatter darker skin tones.
Speaking about her decision to expand on the range, Charlotte says, "When you apply a flattering, nuanced nude shade, it’s empowering and never overwhelming...the ultimate sultry, supermodel seduction! A world of playful, pretty colour that is safe for everyone to play, experiment and discover. I’ve dialled up my iconic nude-pink Pillow Talk shade adding warmth and deeper, sweeter rose tones, for every skin tone from fair to medium to deep, expanding the Pillow Talk universe for every moment, every mood and everyone!”
And with one Pillow Talk lipstick selling every two seconds, we've no doubt the new shades will be a similar sell-out success.
- Priced at Dhs155, the new range of Pillow Talk products, which also includes eye liner, an eyeshadow palette, Cheek to Chic blush, Collagen Lip Bath and Beauty Light Wands, are available to buy at Charlottetilbury.com and Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Wonderlands.
