#BeautyTok has a new crush: the matte Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Blush Wands. 

The recently launched goodies, available in four shades, have quickly risen to viral success alongside the Korean blush nail trend, the cloud skin trend and the vanilla girl aesthetic. In true Tilbury fashion, the makeup mogul has blown countless shoppers away. 

If you were thinking of treating yourself to a little something special, beauty buffs are in agreement that the purchase is well worth it. As TikToker @elenamiglino states: "the hype is real."

What are the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Blush Wands?

For a new take on Tilbury's other viral success, Beauty Light Wands, the matte wands are a liquid blush available in the universally-beloved Pillow Talk shade, as well as Pink Pop, Peach Pop and Dream Pop. 

Meant to lift and revive our complexions, the product provides an airbrush-esque finish that can withstand your 9-to-5, and then some.

Should I buy the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Beauty Blush Wand?

Beauty buffs give the new product a resounding "yes," which is the case with most Charlotte Tilbury products. However, there are a few things to note before making a purchase. 

A few positives include that the "satin"-like finish goes on easily and is able to shine for the duration of the day. Those testing out the wands all have noted that the formula is lightweight and flattering, though Pillow Talk appears to be the shade most accessible with a variety of skin tones. And, less is definitely more: a little goes a long way, so only apply a dot or two before blending. (Psst: when you're done, here's how to clean a Beauty Blender properly.) 

On the downside, the liquid blush is definitely on the pricier side and the tubes aren't terribly large, but shoppers do not seem to mind splurging for the quality.

"Infused with lumi-blur technology—light-reflecting pigments—for a smoothing, soft-focused finish," the new matte beauty wands are available in four shades and are meant for usage along the cheekbones towards the temples.
