It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Charlotte Tilbury makeup but in recent weeks, I've noticed that I cannot apply my makeup without using at least a few of her products - I'm having a real love-in! I skipped her recent Icon palette because, although it looks beautiful, there are no matte shadows and I tend not to wear all shimmer looks. (As a side note, I'm a total eyeshadow palette addict but I haven't bought any this year so far - I feel like I have palette fatigue and it's going to take something really special to make me take the plunge and add to my collection) When the new Glowgasm range was launched, I knew I wouldn't be able to resist adding some products to my collection (in reality, I wanted everything!). I love a glowy base as it's youthful and works well on my dry skin and Charlotte Tilbury makeup is all about radiant, glowing skin so I have a number of her products in my regular routine. Here are my most used Charlotte Tilbury products!
Flawless Filter: I just love what this does for my skin! So many people mistook this for a foundation when it was first released but it isn't - it's a highlighting/glow-adding product that can be used under or over foundation. It does blur pores and there is a hint of coverage but, even in my glowing loving mind, it's too dewy to be used as a foundation. I love to wear it under my base, with a little added over in the areas that I want to be highlighted more. Flawless Filter = healthy looking skin!
Light Wonder Foundation: This is a lightweight foundation that offers light to medium coverage with a glowy but not overly dewy finish. It blurs the appearance of pores and fine lines and the result is your skin, but better. Not suitable if you like full coverage but it suits my taste and makes skin look youthful.
Magic Away Liquid Concealer: I love the texture of this concealer - it feels elasticized, which is perfect for the under eye area as it won't settle in fine lines, but also elsewhere on the face, especially if you ave dry skin. It erases my dark circles in an instant and although the finish is demi-matte, it isn't ageing due to the texture. It's also so quick and easy to apply, thanks to the doe-foot applicator. Bonus points for the clear panel on the side so I can see when I'm running low!
Beauty Light Wand: I am almost finished this and can't decide whether to repurchase this or one of the new shades. This liquid highlighter gives the skin a very flattering sheen rather than a 'seen from outer space' highlight. It's easy to blend and doesn't settle into fine lines.
Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder: This powder really blurs the appearance of pores and gives the skin a polished look without making it look too matte/flat matte. Although I have dry skin, I love this powder as it doesn't dry my skin out further and also doesn't give it a cakey look.
Filmstar Bronze & Glow: I feel like this is the signature Charlotte Tilbury product! The champagne highlight is a very flattering shade and the texture blends into the skin without highlighting fine lines. The bronzer is perfect for adding some definition without looking like a harsh contour and is so easy to work with due to the finely milled texture - no muddy cheeks with this palette!
Lightgasm Palette: A new addition to my collection that I have been using non-stop since I bought it! I have a full review & swatches coming soon but for now, just know that I love it and it's worth the hype!
Eyes to Mesmerise Rose Gold: Another recent addition to my collection but I love it! The formula of the Eyes To Mesmerise cream shadows is extremely flattering on the lid - it applies smoothly, even if your lids aren't line-free. This particular shade is beautiful and suits my green eyes really well. For a quick, easy eye look, you can't go wrong with these shadows!
Legendary Lashes Volume 2: Everything I wanted the original mascara to be - non-smudgy or flaky, really black in colour, adds volume and a curl and it doesn't make the lashes go crispy. If you like dramatic lashes, try this mascara!
Lip Cheat Pillow Talk: I don't know how many of these liners I have used! It's the perfect shade to match my lips so if I want to over-line (slightly, I'm no Kylie Jenner!) I can do so without it looking too fake or ridiculous. The formula is beautiful because it doesn't tug on the lips and this shade matches most lipsticks I wear.
Lip Cheat Iconic Nude: If I am wearing a more brown-toned or true nude lipstick, rather than a pinky nude, this is the liner that I will us. Again, the formula is great as it's non-drying and not too stiff.
Kim K-W lipstick: I have quite a few Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks (see post here) but this is definitely my most worn shade. It's a warm pinky-beige and the formula is so easy to wear. It's pigmented - one swipe will do and feels really comfortable on the lips.
I have other Charlotte Tilbury products in my collection but these are definitely my favourites and the ones that I use most often. I'd love to hear what your favourite products from the brand are? Are there other products that you think I should try? Let me know in the comments below!
