Charlotte Tilbury's Pillow Talk lipstick is as iconic as they come, but with such a mighty reputation also comes a comparatively mighty price tag. Enter, Pillow Talk dupes.

For anyone new to the famous, 'universally' flattering, pink nude, Pillow Talk is Charlotte Tilbury's signature hue, which can now be found in nearly every beauty iteration—from eyeshadows to blush—and is even available in two darker variations. The OG lippie itself is the perfect subtle color to pair alongside your fave non-comedogenic foundations, for an elevated, everyday look.

Sadly though, each rose-gold clad tube will cost you $35 but we've sussed out not one but three replica lipsticks and a Pillow Talk lipliner dupe that will easily fill the void and deliver that perfect, matte pout...

The best Pillow Talk dupes

As mentioned, Charlotte Tilbury's Matte Revolution lipstick is actually available in three Pillow Talk variations but first things first, let's start with the original hue that started it all.

And much like these Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter dupes (and these Charlotte Til bronzer wand dupes for that matter), we've got quite the list of budget-friendly alternatives lined up for you...

The best Pillow Talk Original dupe

The fabled lipstick itself is described as a pink nude that enhances the color of your natural lip shade and looks good on everyone. Its formula features a nourishing blend of orchid and Lipstick Tree extracts plus light-reflecting pigments to help your lips appear softer and smoother. As mentioned though, it is $35, which is quite a premium price to pay for a lippie.

Thankfully though, TikTok has supplied us with a bunch of tried and tested alternatives from brands like L'Oreal and Revlon all of which cost waay under the $30 mark, for a very comparable shade payoff!

The Best Pillow Talk Medium dupe

If you prefer the warmer, berry hue of Pillow Talk Medium, it's your lucky day as TikTok has also supplied us with another very comparable swap for under $10!

The best Pillow Talk Lip liner dupe

And in case you wanted the full lip look, the NYX Slim Pencil liner in shade "Peakaboo Neutral" has been dubbed the ultimate Pillow Talk liner dupe. God, what did we ever do without TikTok?

For the perfect Pillow Talk lip look (whether with the OG or a dupe) be sure to exfoliate your lips first—we'd recommend a lip scrub like this one from Fresh (at Sephora)—then line your lips, for a really precise and defined lip before topping it with your lipstick. You can also add a gloss if you want a bit more shine.
