I own more Charlotte Tilbury products than any other makeup brand and I think it's safe to say that it definitely puts them high up on my favourite brand list. Not only is the rose gold casing absolutely dreamy, but the formulas are absolutely gorgeous. This post is a long one, so grab yourself a cup of tea, a snack and a pen and paper as you're going to have a wishlist as long as your arm!
Starting with makeup, I recently got sent the Wonderglow* which is a product I've used in sample form for years now. I can't believe it's taken me this long to own it as if you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll know that it's one of my top primers ever! You only need a little amount to add just the right amount of radiance to the skin before going in with your other base products. If you want something a little bit more intense then the Flawless Filter* will be your best bet. It's thicker in formula and I like to use this on the high points of my face instead of all over, but it offers a similar finish the Wonderglow.
Years ago now I owned The Retoucher Pen, but that's now long gone and has been replaced by the Magic Away Concealer*. The sponge isn't my favourite at all, but the formula pleasantly surprised me as it covers my dark circles and looks natural on the skin too. I've lacking a powder in my collection (trust me it's on my wishlist), but I then finish with the Filmstar Bronze and Glow* which was the first ever Charlotte Tilbury I owned.
The bronzing and highlighting duo is perfect for contouring the cheekbones and adding a luminous glow. I actually owned it first because I won it in a giveaway many moons ago, the bronzer side is the perfect hue and I always wish they sold it on it's own too as I tend to use that up much quicker. The only powder blusher I've owned from them is the Cheek to Chic Ecstasy* offering which I owned before but gave away as I wasn't reaching for it as much as I should, but now I've got it again, I've have to say the coral hue is much more 'me' now.
If there's one product from Charlotte Tilbury that I didn't get on with it's the Pretty Youth Glow Filter* as I just don't reach for it as much as I thought I would. The highlighter is very subtle on the skin, so the blusher shade is definitely the stand out side. It goes from cream to powder, but you do need to work it up to achieve a good dose of colour.
The eyeshadow quads are some of my favourites too as I think they're a great idea if you don't think you'd use a full sized eyeshadow palette and if you struggle to find the shades that work well together then this is perfect too. It's hard to pick my favourite between Dolce Vita and Vintage Vamp* as although they're quite similar they still offer something different.
The Matte Revolution Lipsticks are some of my favourite formulas especially the classic Pillow Talk* shade. The darker hues have to have a mention too as The Queen*, a vibrant pink is absolutely beautiful for this time of the year - I always get compliments whenever I wear it. The Legendary Queen* hue is also a favourite for the Autumn/Winter as although they describe it as a soft neutral wine shade, it's a lot darker than I expected, but it's absolutely beautiful.
It's not very often that I stick to one lipstick for longer than a week before trying something else, but The Duchess* which is part of their K.i.s.s.i.n.g range, is always at hand. It's nourishing formulas works well with my dehydrated lips and the classic pink hue is perfect for all occasions. I particularly like using this with the Pillow Talk Lip Liner* too which I'm glad I have back in my collection after losing it when moving.
When it comes to Charlotte Tilbury skincare I haven't tried much, but the first thing I got my hands on was the Goddess Skin Clay Mask*, a clarifying and detoxing mask that helps to brighten the complexion and tighten pores. I've also tried samples of the Take It Off Eye Makeup Remover* and the Supermodel Body*, both fairly good in my eyes, but I am yet to have the full sized versions yet.
I've enjoyed using my miniature pot of the Charlotte's Magic Cream* for a while now as you only need the tiniest amount at the time, but it goes without saying that the large 50ml is on the steeper side. I think it's great at nourishing dehydrated skin and my complexion seriously loved it in the Winter. I paired it with my sample of the Multi-Miracle Glow* which is a multitasking product that worked well as a cleanser mostly.
Last in the very long post and if you've got to the end then congratulations - it's time to treat yourself to a face mask! The Instant Magic Facial Mask* is a dry sheet mask that you can use up to three times which is something I didn't know until I got my hands on one. It'd be a great pick if you need your skin to glow before an event or a wedding as this seriously packs a punch.
