Lipstick -Charlotte Tilbury -Hollywood Lips Matte Contour Liquid Lipstick

Awful. I'm a fan of several of her products and have been wanting to try her lipsticks. I purchased 2 of the Hollywood Lips. The colors are beautiful but the formula is awful as other reviewers have noted. It is very drying and leaves a ring of color on the edges of your lips after an hour. The formula is patchy and chalky. Basically it is like an old tube of Avon lipstick you found rolling around in your mom's purse and decided to try out. Returned to Sephora the next day.

Lipstick -Charlotte Tilbury -Matte Revolution Lipstick

I would like to echo the review below. I bought this in the shade Pillow Talk. This is an amazing shade. It's a darker, natural, neutral-leaning almost warm woody pink on my lips. I was afraid it might be a bit too warm, but it works perfectly with my skin tone.

Although matte, the formula doesn't dry out my lips, and it lasts very well throughout the day. The fade is very nice, slowly reaching a shade just slightly darker than my natural lips before finally disappearing.

I don't usually like to spend so much on a lip product, but I have to say that this was a good purchase IMO.

It feels creamy and luxurious on my lips, and the shade seems to make my teeth appear whiter. I love the packaging. It's elegant, and I feel glamorous when I swipe it on my lips.

I would definitely repurchase this once I've run out. I'm even considering buying some more shades in this line.

This was my first CT purchase, and I have to say I'm very impressed!

Brows -Charlotte Tilbury -Legendary Brows Brow Gel

I was hoping that this product would perform as on video ads. Means transform my patchy brows (I have a couple of scars) into uniform perfection. Unfortunately, that didn't happen at all.
For the reference, my natural hair color is in between level 7 and 6. I was hesitant what shade to pick since Linda was looking too light and Supermodel too dark. Good, I went for the lighter one, Supermodel would be definitely too dramatic.
The depth of the Linda shade is a tag too light for me and the color payoff is quite greenish. It makes my brows older looking. Like they are graying or something.
The product doesn't work in sparse areas, it doesn't play well on the naked skin.
I also don't like its heavy gloopy consistency and overall feel on the brows. I didn't overapply, but I don't like tinted brow gels in general.
One star because it doesn't do what it advertised to do.

I have the shade Pillow Talk. This formula is one of my favorites. It's creamy, pigmented, looks matte and feels very comfortable. It fades gracefully, doesn't transfer much and doesn't cling to dry patches. Totally recommend.

Lip Liners -Charlotte Tilbury -Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk

on 12/2/2018 8:24:00 AM

I heard so much about this shade everywhere. I purchased two at the same time and don't regret it. This is perfect nude/neutral lip pencil that can go with any shade of lipstick, when you are not sure what lip pencil shade to use with your lipstick.

It glides on smoothly without skipping, but I find I can go through this pencil quickly and require to sharpen the tip frequently so the application goes on the edge of my lips accurately. The lasting power is fairly good and doesn't bleed or smudge away.


Lipstick -Charlotte Tilbury -Hot Lips: Kim K.W.

I have very pale, neutral undertone skin. This shade, Kim K.W. is very light but give a wonderful neutral look. I use Iconic Nude or Lancôme Ideal lip pencil and the contrast is not harsh, blends nicely and make my lips look kissable, plush and big :)

It goes on creamy, coverage is medium to high, glides on good. The scent is similar, if not the same as MAC lipsticks. I enjoy reapplying without any bad build-up.
The lipstick doesn't come off quickly, but typical wear as MAC lipsticks.
Packaging is old looking with some weight to it, in rose gold shade. It opens well, and closes securely. I'm surprised the rose gold doesn't fade off.

Highlighters -Charlotte Tilbury -Filmstar Bronze & Glow

Really don’t understand the hype, it’s a bronzer and highlighter and yes Charlotte is a luxury brands but 50 quid? Unless I’m going to end up looking like kim k it’s not worth it, mac give me sun bronzer, benefit hoola will do the same job! I still tried it anyway but honestly it wasn’t even worth using again as i found it a boring bronzer, much prefer Mac’s give me sun.

Liquid -Charlotte Tilbury -Light Wonder Foundation

In my search for a light weight/coverage foundation for my mature dry skin I decided to veer to Beautylish and Ms Tilbury. I often use Dr. Jart BB cream but it's so light ... anyway, I like this "foundation" just fine. Sometimes I mix it with MAC's face & body, use a beauty blender and find that the finish is very natural skin like ... If I want a more flawless finish I will use some MAC prolongwear concealer on any assorted broken capillaries, etc before application. I believe I would repurchase this but I would only recommend it to someone looking for super sheer coverage.

Self Tanners -Charlotte Tilbury -Overnight Bronze & Glow Mask

foto

I really enjoy this as a winter self tanner. It’s subtle but noticeable. I like to self tan year round but I go for less obvious tan when it’s not spring/summer. This is my last step before I go to bed. I do my normal skincare routine and wait about half hour for that to absorb. Then I use this sleeping mask and it provides the extra hydration needed in cold weather and I wake up with a bit of a sun kissed glow. This is not an obvious looking self tan- I can’t stress this enough. I use it a couple of nights in a row to maximize the effects and then it wears off naturally throughout the week.

Liquid -Charlotte Tilbury -Magic Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF15

This is just too dry, powdery and flat looking on my skin. I look like I'm wearing heavy foundation when I use it. I prefer foundation to look a little dewy and natural. I bought it after the MUA at Charlotte Tilbury did a mini makeover, but the key must have been the heavy moisturiser she put underneath. I can see how it would work for younger or oilier skin. I keep this in work as my emergency foundation if I've forgotten my make up bag and need to see clients.

Really beautiful foundation for mature skin. One of the best I have ever tried. I use shade 4 in Armani Luminous Silk, shades 1N1 and 1N2 in EL Double wear. MAC shades I’m between NC15 and NC20. I have Light Wonder shade 2 fair and it is perfect for me in winter time. Shade is very neutral; not too yellow or pink.

Pressed Powders -Charlotte Tilbury -Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder

foto

I love the powder. It sets my makeup so well, and is never caky. I can use it under the eyes. It is good for travel. However I find it has almost no coverage, and it is sooo expensive with a quite flimsy packaging. But I would rebuy because so far it is the only pressed powder I can use under the eyes. I have tried MUFE HD, hourglass ambient lightening powders, nars crystal, bourjois healthy mix, essence and catrice etc ... no one compares to this under the eyes. It is as good as the Laura Mercier for under eyes but much more travel friendly and I much prefer the colour.

I kept seeing this foundation doing the rounds on YouTube although I've been a die hard studio fix fan for years now Im open to trying new ones. I work shifts sometimes up to 12 hours at a time so I need something that will last and unfortunately this doesn't have the stamina.
When I first put it on I loved it, its like second skin. I'd say it's medium coverage but is buildable. It's not mask like and looks nice and dewy with a bit of a glow. It feels quite luxurious on the skin and blends easily.
I applied it as I do normally over the top of my baby skin primer and with my maybelline fit me powder over the top.
Unfortunately at the end of my 10 hour shift the foundation had gone patchy in places, especially on my chin. I would say I have combination skin. My chin is definitely the oiliest part of my face but it's not over oily. I am 29 years old so I don't have greasy skin.
It had also come away on my cheeks but my cream ABH contour was still in place so my face just looked patchy. Maybe I should of powdered my cheeks but I don't normally need to.
Luckily I asked for a sample of this instead of going and purchasing the whole thing. I was given shade 6 which was also too dark for me but that's all they had left. I wear mac NC20 with a healthy dusting of bronzer usually so I am quite tan.
I think this foundation would be better for mature skin and for someone who doesn't need it to last a long period of time.
I'll be sticking to my mac for now. Sorry Charlotte

Lipstick -Charlotte Tilbury -Bitch Perfect

I am surprised that I did not review C.T.'s lipstick which I bought as soon as it hit the American market. About me: I am an NC23-25(in Mac speak)a medium light with yellow-toned complexion, medium brown eyes with a lot of gold as opposed to a rich warm red-brown shade, I look best in colors that are not of the same base tone as my skin, but not too cool either. This color hits all the right notes because I am now 65(gasp!)I look best in lighter shades vs. my very brief love affair(more like a one night stand)with red or some fun lush pinks from Chanel. I require a lot of blush(think bozo-ish clown)because I absorb color like mad otherwise I look sickly when I don't wear rouge. I do wear Chanel Joues Contraste in Jersey, Rose Ecrin or Rose Bronze, because the colors are so beautiful, first I apply Chanel's(what else$$!)Les Beiges Healthy Glow blush in N0.21 to increase the powder blush staying power. Which all leads me to have as natural and soft a lip color as possible, without looking pasty or too 'done'(think news anchorwomen on American T.V.). Tilbury lipstick has good staying power, considering I do not go for more than 10 minutes without coffee or tea(iced or hot) or Diet Coke. I wear it(the lipstick not the Diet Coke)with Pink Venus lipliner as opposed to Iconic Nude(too beige) or Pillow Talk, which is usually suggested by Tilbury, I strongly suggest you use one of her liners or as they are called LipCheat, the former mentioned cool nudes make me look like I am stuck in a wishful thinking 1960's Swinging London time warp
