Charlotte Tilbury’s practically iconic “Pillow Talk” lipstick has become well-known for being an astonishingly universally-flattering pink-nude hue that looks good on just about any skin tone—seriously. Aside from the pigment, it’s also touted for its performance—it has a semi-matte finish with some pretty impressive staying power, but manages to feel comfortable and non-drying all day long.

The makeup artist and brand founder created the now ubiquitous shade after years of not being able to find the perfect nude lip color for all of her clients, mixing and matching different pigments until she found the blend that flattered all of her clients.

Not only is this “It” lipstick a favorite in makeup artist kits for weddings and photoshoots, but it’s also a celebrity beauty favorite, earning the seal of approval from the likes of Hailey Bieber, Alexa Chung, Adwoa Aboah, Emma Roberts, Nicole Kidman, and Gwyneth Paltrow, to name a few. This A-list roster of fans is one such example of how the perfectly muted rosy-neutral color truly works on just about anyone—and not to mention, it compliments any makeup look, whether you’re wearing it with a bare face or dramatic smokey eye.

While opting for the real deal is undoubtedly worth the investment (it really is good stuff, guys), if dropping $35 on a lipstick feels a bit daunting, we’ve uncovered a few dupes that offer a similar hue and formula to the O.G. product but for a fraction of the price. In fact, all of our picks are $23 and under.

This neutral dark pink-brown hue is slightly more warm than Pillow Talk, but when swatched, the two look essentially the same. The comfortable matte finish is also strikingly similar for the two, except NYX’s option will only set you back about $12 (it’s sold in a set of two).

While not technically a drugstore price point, MAC’s “Cosmo” (a shade in their Amplified range) is a pretty uncanny shade match for “Pillow Talk,” and will set you back $23 instead of $34. While this formula is less matte than Tilbury’s, it still delivers the same bold pigment and staying power as the original.
