Charlotte Tilbury is a highly praised makeup brand in Hollywood and definitely a celebrity favorite. Kim Kardashian, Cindy Crawford, Emily Ratajkowski, and Madison Beer are just a few of the big names that support this brand. Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk is arguably the most iconic lipstick in the beauty industry. Much like Nars’ Orgasm blush shade, this lipstick shade has become a staple in most makeup lovers’ beauty bags.

Pillow Talk is a muted, neutral shade with pink and brown undertones. It’s labeled as the perfect nude lipstick by its cult-like followers who swear by it. Because it’s a Charlotte Tilbury product, it no doubt has a great formula to it that isn’t easily rivaled. We found some awesome Pillow Talk dupes that we can’t shut up about!
1. Anastasia Beverly Hills Matte Lipstick in Kiss

Anastasia Beverly Hills is another well-known beauty brand in the world of makeup. This specific lipstick is described as velvety smooth with a matte finish and comfortable wearability. The shade is a muted, rose petal pink. [easyazon_link identifier="B074JGXSQN" locale="US" title="Anastasia Beverly Hills - Matte Lipstick - Kiss" nw="y" tag="celebstyleguide-dag-20" popups="n"]This dupe[/easyazon_link] is full-pigmented and in the form of a classic bullet lipstick like the original.

While it is cheaper than Pillow Talk at $24, it’s the most expensive dupe on this list. Although, given the quality and recognition of the brand itself, this is to be expected.
2. Maybelline New York Matte Nudes in Almond Rose

This [easyazon_link identifier="B01LX3WKGF" locale="US" title="Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick" nw="y" tag="celebstyleguide-dag-20" popups="n"]creamy matte lipstick[/easyazon_link] is infused with honey nectar for a hydrating formula. It’s available in their collection of warm nude colors. The particular shade called Almond Rose is a dusty pink with caramel undertones.

This popular product by Maybelline is well-loved for its formula and color range that can fit multiple skin tones, although Almond Rose is known as a Pillow Talk runner-up. At under $10, this dupe is cost-efficient and will satisfy your search for the perfect nude.
3. Mac Amplified Crème Lipstick in Neutral Pink
[caption id="attachment_23406" align="aligncenter" width="500"] Mac Amplified Crème Lipstick in Neutral Pink[/caption]
Mac Cosmetics has a long history in the world of MUA’s, red-carpets, and celebrity collaborations. They have stayed relevant in the beauty scene for a long time based on the quality of their products alone. This full-coverage crème lipstick has an ultra-creamy formula and a ton of color payoff. It has a medium, but buildable coverage with a hydrating finish.
[caption id="attachment_23407" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Amplified Lipstick, Neutral Pink[/caption]
This shade is described as a soft pink beige, which mirrors the warm brown undertones in Pillow Talk. At $19, this lipstick is a much more affordable version of Pillow Talk but it still has the same professional quality.
4. Covergirl Exhibitionist Lipstick Cream in Honeyed Bloom

[easyazon_link identifier="B00OW9NDKE" locale="US" title="COVERGIRL Exhibitionist Lipstick Cream" nw="y" tag="celebstyleguide-dag-20" popups="n"]This creamy lipstick[/easyazon_link] has more of a sheen than Pillow Talk, but the shade is nearly spot-on. It’s a lighter version of the original pinky-brown but has the same warm neutral feel. Although it lacks the matte finish of Charlotte Tilbury’s, you’re sure to have moisturized lips all day with the shea butter-infused formula.

Covergirl is a popular drugstore brand, so finding a dupe for a $39 lipstick in their collection is a major find. This is another product swap for under $8, which is hard t" alt="The 4 Best Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick Dupes" class="hero-img"/>
These are online exclusive products, making them only available for purchase through the company’s website or affiliated retailers. I’m all about being boujee on a budget and finding my favorite designer pieces for less. That being said, here is my favorite Amazon dupe for the Gleaming Primrose Mirror.
The brand Hamilton Hill offers their [easyazon_link identifier="B07CHWM258" locale="US" title="Hamilton Hills Top Gold Baroque Wall Mirror" nw="y" tag="celebstyleguide-dag-20" popups="n"]Top Gold Baroque Wall Mirror[/easyazon_link] on Amazon in 3 different sizes for under $250 a piece. This opulent design is very reminiscent of the Anthropologie original. The main difference between the two is the gold frame itself. While the Gleaming Primrose Mirror is on the thinner side, the Hamilton Hill dupe is a bit chunkier. Though, this doesn’t take away from the sophisticated look it. It’s in rich gold with a detailed apex to give that same vintage vibe that gave popularity to the Anthropologie mirror we all know and love.

Another difference between the two is that the Gleaming Primrose mirror is meant to be leaned against a surface whereas the Hamilton Hill mirrors are wall-mounted. The last thing to consider before diving into the price gap is size. The Amazon dupe mirrors come in smaller sizes, meant to be placed in bathrooms or entryways over a side table. The Anthropologie mirror comes in two larger floor-to-ceiling sizes which retail for $1000 or more.

Their products are labeled as yoga wear but in reality, they’re suitable for running, training, and all other kinds of exercise. Although, their products are on the pricier side. Here are some Lululemon dupes so you can still sweat in style without dishing out the cash.

The Lululemon Align Tank Top is one of their best sellers. With pads inserted in it and a longline hem, this sports bra is supportive and comfortable. It comes in 15 different color and pattern choices that retail for $58-$68. THE GYM PEOPLE Workout Tank Top on Amazon is a great dupe if your love the Align tank tops! They are designed with the same fit in mind, they’re soft and contain pads as well for that support in the bust. These sports bras also come in a variety of colors that are similar to the original ones.

Continuing with sports bra dupes, the CRZ YOGA sports bra is an awesome swap out for the Lululemon Free To Be sports bra. The signature criss-cross straps on the back are extremely similar between the two products. The Lululemon bra has removable pads for support but acknowledges that this product is made for low-impact activity. Once again, this comes in about 15 colors and retails for $48-$52. An interesting thing to note about this sports bra is that the larger size intended for cup sizes C/D is priced higher than the A/B sizes. The CRZ YOGA dupe is sized from XS-XL. This dupe has raving reviews on Amazon to back up the quality. A great option for yogis on a budget.

Another Lululemon best seller is the Align Jogger. These are made of the same buttery fabric that all their Align products are made of. They have a band near the stomach for support and cuffs to taper in the bottom. Bonus; they have pockets! Unlike many Lululemon products, these joggers are available for up to a size 20. They retail for $98. The Colorfulkoala High Waisted Joggers have an almost identical design to the Align Joggers. All the main features are there, including pockets and a buttery soft feel. These are not surprisingly Amazon’s choice given their popularity and are a third of the price of Lululemon’s joggers.

Lastly, but the most anticipated dupe: the Align pants. The Align leggings are the most known Lululemon product to date. Like the joggers that use the same material, the leggings have the signature buttery texture that feels like a second skin. They come in a variety of lengths, patterns, colors and have quite the price range. These leggings can retail from $98-$118 depending on size, color, in-seem, length, and other variables. Luckily, our Amazon dupe is less than $30! The Colorfulkoala High Waisted Yoga Pants have mastered that similar smooth texture. They also have the seamless waistband that people love in their Lululemon Align Leggings. They come in over 30 colors and patterns!

The two that I will be talking about are the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and the CHI Volumizer 4-in-1 Blowout Brush. These two products are both available for purchase on Amazon.
CHI Volumizer 4-in-1 Blowout Brush
The design of this brush is very similar to the Revlon Blowout Brush. The one unique detail about this brush is that it contains Ion Technology to provide shine and reduce frizz. This was the first brand of “Hot-Air Brushes” that I tried, and overall, it worked great. It was able to style and dry my hair in under 30 minutes, which coming from someone with thick and curly hair, was a miracle. I did have a few qualms about this product.

For one, there is a small gap in between the brush and the handle. My hair would sometimes wind around it and it would be painful to get out. From the reviews, there were a few other people who experienced this as well. The next problem I had with this product was the claims on the box.
The Ion technology is supposed to help reduce frizz more than other hot-air brushes. While it didn’t necessarily create frizz, it didn’t do much to reduce it. I would give this product 4 stars from my personal experience.
Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer
This product is much more popular. Is this because the actual hot-air brush is better or is just attributed to the fact that Revlon is a more known brand?

The first thing I noticed with this brush was that the actual barrel was larger than the CHI. This made a big difference in the time as well as the wave it created in my hair. The fact that I was able to grab more hair with this brush allowed me to dry my hair in about 15 minutes, cutting down the time in half. It also created a larger wave in my hair instead of a curl. There is also no gap between the barrel and the handle, avoiding the issue I had with the CHI Volumizer 4-in-1.
I’ve had this brush for over a year now and It’s still working and working well. Though, based on reviews, a lot of people can’t say the same. I think it’s important to note that some people did have issues with their dryer breaking down on them after a couple of months.

Miranda Kerr and Reese Witherspoon are just some of the A-list celebrities who have shown their love for this trend. Our favorite celebrity who really rocked a straw hat was the Duchesse herself, Meghan Markle. She wore Madewell’s x Biltmore Panama Hat.

When talking about bohemian style, Vanessa Hudgens needs to enter this conversation. The actress is known for her carefree, boho style. She’s been seen multiple times wearing straw hats along with bikini tops and various bottoms for a laid-back summer look. These hats can be styled in a million different ways. Like Vanessa, they can be worn to the beach or in a vacation setting, or like Reese and Miranda, they can be worn with casual day clothes and worn around town. For affordable straw hats, Nordstrom is the place to shop. Most of their pieces are $40 or less and as many styles as you can get your hands on.

Wicker bags, while using similar materials, give off a completely different aesthetic than the straw hat. Wicker bags are very European and can look quite classy. Think picnic in Paris or sightseeing in Spain. These are also a sustainable choice as these bags are usually made to last, especially when handwoven by artisans using all-natural materials. Big-name brands have jumped on this trend as well. For example, Ralph Lauren’s Crochet-Straw Medium Whitney Tote or the Panier Medium Leather-Trimmed Raffia Tote from Saint Laurent. These are higher-end options, but the craftsmanship may be worth it for designer bag collectors. But, for the budget babes looking for some fun summer accessories to play around with there are tons of well-priced wicker bags.

H&M’s round straw bag is only $25. This white, wicker bag is on-trend, convenient to carry with the over-the-shoulder strap, and for the price, it really can’t be beaten. The color makes the material aspect of this trend more subtle, letting your outfit speak instead of your accessories.

Whistles Lianne tote bag is a straw tote bag perfect for beach days and picnics. With brown leather straps, it’s ideal for long summer days away from the house. The neutral color ensures that it will match almost any outfit you have on making it easy to grab without a second thought.

This trend is here to stay- at least for this upcoming summer season. Wicker and straw-like materials are a sustainable alternative to synthetic beach bags or plastic totes. Whether you’re wearing it in the form of a UV blocking hat or as a bag to take sunning in the french riviera, you can’t go wrong with a wicker accessory.
