I have Pillow Talk but it is quite drying. The packaging is quite light and feels quite cheap for the price. I much prefer the M &S Rosie for Autograph lipsticks. They are comfortable and moisturising and have gorgeous heavy rose gold packaging. Lady Rose is a gorgeous everyday neutral pink.
Pillow Talk is pinker than Bitch Perfect and it's a matte.
I do agree that neutral nude shades make up a disproportionately large part of the lipstick collections, but I think nude lips are kind of her personal aesthetic so she has made a collection in which everyone can find a nude that particularly suits them.
I have Bitch Perfect, Stoned Rose, Tell Laura and Lost Cherry, so two quite neutral ones and two proper colours. I don't wear a lot of neutral shades, so I'm not that drawn to many others, but the ones I have I wear a lot because they just feel nice to wear - not sticky or heavy or patchy and they last well.
I'm actually after a nude pink mauve. There was a lovely one Naomi Watts wore on Gipsy, it was actually the best thing about the series, and they showed CT lipstick in her bathroom, so I think it's a CT one.
Some of the lipsticks are great, others not so great.
I have a few of the lipsticks, and I find some of them look uneven on the lips. Kim K and Miranda May are especially bad at this. I also have Pillow Talk, The Queen, Shanghai Nights, Valentine and they are fine.
I don't think they are any better than any other lipstick on the market.
Yes they are similar Chardonnay but then I have 100s of variations on pink/brown/nude so I could probably say the same about most of my make-up purchases! I also own most of Bobbi Brown's range in those colours
