The Best of Charlotte Tilbury

Tuesday, 18 July 2017


 When I first bought a product from Charlotte Tilbury I felt fancy as shit. I'd just forked out £39 for four eyeshadows, and while I used a gift voucher I'd got for Christmas, I felt good. Like, sunglass emoji good. Since then, I've felt fancy more than once, picking up a few bits here and there. However, two things in particular have really stood out to me and they're something I use nearly every day. So, welcome to my best of Charlotte Tilbury.

The first item I want to talk about is the Golden Goddess Eyeshadow Quad. This quad is perfect for travelling and sometimes when I go on holiday it is the only eyeshadow palette I will take. While it doesn't have any matte shades (which is usually a big no-no from me!), you can easily create many looks with this tiny little palette and that gold shade (as you can probably see by the huge dent in it) is a holy grail for me! I've never found a gold shade of eyeshadow that is so flattering on my lids! It really does make me feel like a 'golden goddess'.  

The pigmentation of these Tilbury shadows is second to none. They're buttery, swipe on like a dream and are so pigmented that no Fix+ is required! You'd expect quality for the forty-odd quid you spent on them, and quality is what you get! My MAC eyeshadows pale in comparison to these! I attack that gold for an all over the lid shade, a inner corner highlight, a brow bone highlight and even a cheek highlight if I'm in a pinch and it looks insane. With this and Lime Crime's 'Aura',  you'd need never buy a gold eyeshadow again (yet, I still do!). 

My other holy grail product from Charlotte Tilbury is their Magic Foundation which has overtaken Nars in the race for my favourite ever foundation. It's a demi-matte formula which fits me perfectly and stays on my face all day, even in the height of summer. The shade selection is wonderful (I'm the shade 2) and it matches my skin tone perfectly, which I often find hard due to my yellowy undertones. 

The packaging is amazing; a frosted bottle with a white pump and a rose gold lid. Um, heart-eye emoji all around (why am I mentioning emojis so much in this post?!). It looks stunning on my vanity and stunning on my face. The formula is almost gel-like, which I really like. It means it's easy to apply and reminds me of Bourjois' Healthy Mix Serum, which I fell for many moons ago, but haven't gone back to it since. Price wise, it's not too bad either. It's £30 for a bottle which is cheaper than Nars, and only a few pounds more expensive than MAC! I'm obsessed with this foundation and wear it every single day!

  3. Unfortunately haven't tried anything from CT!! I'm always on the search for new foundations though as my skin seems to change all the damn time and the gold bar highlighter has been on my wishlist FOREVER. Maybe I'll just have to have a mini spree on an upcoming payday at some point!!

  5. I need both of these!!
    I've tried the magic foundation in the past and loved it so I'm really not sure why I haven't repurchase! I really want to try one of the quads I just haven't decided which one yet! Film star Bronze and Glow is one of my favs from CT! It is the perfect palette for paler girls!

  9. The eyeshadow quads are soo pretty and great quality. I like uptown girl, golden goddess and rock chick, although I still haven't bought any of them. The price always holds me back! Maybe I'll put one of them on my Christmas list...
