I must admit that I have a really massive obsession with Charlotte Tilbury at the moment. So much so that on a recent work trip to Birmingham and Manchester, I bought items in both Selfridges and then again when I got home online. It's terrible and I blame Charlotte entirely on how very depressing it is to now look at my bank account. I've been quite in love with the Makeup-Artist for some time now and have been waiting to get my hands on her makeup collection ever since it was launched. I started a couple of months back with my first Matte Revolution Lipstick and Lip Cheat and ever since then I'd been dying to buy a couple more bits - you can click to see my first post of the Lipstick and Lip Cheat Review.
As many of you may know, recently I've been dedicated to only wearing powder mineral foundation (my go-to being from BareMinerals) but after being given a sample of Charlotte Tilbury's Light Wonder foundation -£32 (in no other than the exact right shade for me) I ordered it almost immediately and haven't looked back since. I still only wear this on special occasions, I'm not 100% converted back to liquid just yet but I am really loving this foundation more than most. It blends really well with my Beauty Blender and with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and the coverage it gives is just what I've been looking for for a while now. It's really thin in it's consistency which is something that I really love with a foundation; I always steer clear of overly thick formulations. This foundation in particular really lets your skin breathe and I really love how it gives the perfect finish.
The next product I've been loving has been the Colour Chameleon Eyeshadow stick in Champagne Diamonds- £19. I've never been one for eyeshadow sticks before but the colour of this one really did just steal my heart. It's a shimmery champagne gold and no joke, it lasts hours. When I was in Selfridges in Birmingham the sales assistant serving me showed a swatch on her arm and it literally doesn't budge once applied. I absolutely love using this shade in the centre of my lids after applying a base cream shadow and a dark burgundy in the outer corners, it really ties in the look and with a taupe / matte brown shade under my eyes to define them a little more and a slick of the next product I'm about to talk about as my liner, this is a serious contender for my favourite every day look at the moment. No matter how much you try to smudge this product once it is set it really isn't going anywhere, until that is, you decide to take off your makeup with a cleansing water. I really love this product and am already adding more to my wish list!
Charlotte's The Feline Flick Eyeliner Pen (£22) is my next new purchase; I bought this online at the same time as the Light wonder foundation to stop myself from having to pay postage. I mean come on, who wouldn't rather pay an extra £15 to get another product and free postage instead of wasting £5.99 on having your product delivered? - I'm sure there is some logic there somewhere! Nevertheless I haven't regretted buying this product so far and I (here we go again) am really loving the results. I'm not the best at a good flick (let alone a great one) and so perfecting my cat-eye look has always been difficult for me, however this product has made everything so much easier for me. Unlike other felt-tip like eyeliner pens that I have tried in the past, this ones has a very slight nib and so that means I'm easily getting a much more precise line. After seeing a video by Thumbelina Lillie on Youtube recently, I've picked up the tip of using tape / masking tape on my face to get the most precise flick that I can and my gosh with this pen it sure does work (I've tried it in the past with other eyeliners I have not had the best experience). Would definitely recommend this super black 'panther' liner to everyone.
Last but not least are my lip products! As I mentioned above you can see my reviews on the Lip Cheat in Pink Venus and Matte Revolution lipstick in Sexy Sienna here. As for my other purchased product this month, I picked up the Lip Cheat in Berry Naughty (£16). I really like Charlotte Tilbury Lip Pencils, they're soft to apply and last a really long time and the colour pay off is fantastic. I really like applying a lip liner before my lipstick as it stops my colours from bleeding and this colour is perfect for applying under purple / burgundy shades and even though we're now coming into Summer, I do still love a vampy lip sometimes.
My obsession with Charlotte Tilbury is ongoing and I already have the Filmstar Bronze and Glow Highlight and Bronzing powder duo and the Full Fat Lashes Mascara added to my wish list! Have you ever tried any Charlotte Tilbury products or are you wanting to get any? Let me know in the comments.
