Charlotte Tilbury is without question, my favourite makeup brand of the moment. The products have unbeatable quality and ooze luxury with their pretty rose gold packaging.
Back in September, John Lewis began stocking Charlotte Tilbury on JohnLewis.com. To celebrate, they invited me down to be transformed into one of 10 of Charlotte Tilbury’s beautiful looks and become an Oxford Street Window Star. I chose the Golden Goddess look – honey-toned cheekbones, glowing skin and gleaming eyelids, you can see my transformation gif here.
After the makeover, John Lewis very kindly offered me the chance to select four Charlotte Tilbury products to continue to play with at home. I chose one old favourite that I’ve used before, and three new products that I desperately wanted to try again after my makeover.
Light Wonder Foundation* – £32
Whilst Charlotte Tilbury’s new Magic Foundation had just been released at the time of my makeover, I still opted to try her Light Wonder foundation as I prefer a lighter coverage foundation, and was immediately wooed by it’s promise of glowing, dewy skin. I absolutely love this foundation – it has an air-light formula which applies beautifully and adds a luminosity to the skin. I have the shade 4 which suits light to medium skin tones with cool undertones. Longevity is great, it lasts around 6-8 hours on my skin before needing a touch up.
Cheek to Chic – First Love Blusher* – £30
I actually received a different blusher to the one I had asked for, but I can safely say I’m not disappointed. First Love is a medium, peachy brown shade with a satin finish and warm undertones. It’s a shade I would never normally pick out, but feel that it suits my skin tone well and is perfect for the autumn. The pigmentation of this blusher is exceptional, only a light touch is required to give the apples of my cheeks a delicate pop of colour.
Brow Lift Eyebrow Pencil* – £22.50
Embarrassingly, for the longest time I’ve been using a battered Sleek palette to tame my brows, so was delighted to get my hands on the Charlotte Tilbury Brow Lift Pencil. I feel like this pencil was made for me – it’s a 3 step product, which includes a brush to groom, a highlighter to lift, and a triangular-shaped brown pencil which defines and shape the brows. It’s shape is ideal for applying hair like strokes and is the perfect colour match for my brows.
Filmstar Bronze & Glow* – £49.00
Despite having already owned this product before, it’s one of my holy grails. With that said, with a near £50 price tag – it’s a painful process to have to repurchase it when it runs out so I was delighted to be able to receive a brand new one from the John Lewis team. I use this every single day to bronze and highlight my face, and find that it’s the perfect palette to add a sun-kissed glow. The bronzer is a blend of pearl and pigment which contours my features perfectly, whilst the golden based highlighter flatters any skin tone and uses Light Flex Technology to capture the light and radiate it out for a luminous complexion.
If you haven’t tried any of the Charlotte Tilbury products, I’d strongly recommend you do. They’re not cheap, but are more than worth their price tag and would be the perfect items to put on your Christmas list this year.
