Lip Treatments -Charlotte Tilbury -Lip Magic

on 2/23/2018 12:59:00 PM

I really didn't like this, wish i could return it!
It smells horrible... Its an incredibaly tiny jar for £26.. And it dries my lips out!!!
I've barely used it, but whenever i think ill try it one more time, its very underwhelming and the strong old lady scent puts me off.


Pressed Powders -Charlotte Tilbury -Airbrush Flawless Finish

This is my favourite compact powder. I’ve repurchased it four or five times and I swear I won’t come back to my former favourite: Chanel’s Poudre Universelle Compacte.
The powder doesn’t look heavy on my face. In fact, it is translucent, but gives a slightly „blurry” finish which is very flattering as I’m in my early 40s. It has never broken me out (while other powders have), it has a very aesthetically pleasing compact in rose gold with a nice CT logo and with a mirror inside. The compact is lightweight, I can even put it in a pocket if I don’t carry a bag. The colour is perfect for me (I’m MAC NC15, Chanel B10) and I would describe it as a neutral fair with a slightest yellow undertone.

This is a terrible mascara. Yes, it does make the lashes voluminous and long but is smudges horribly! I have tried it several times and everytime I looked at the mirror mid-morning/afternoon I had smudged mascara around my eyes. Wondering how long I have been walking around like that. This was not due to humidity or rain. Plainly unacceptable for that price.

Highlighters -Charlotte Tilbury -Filmstar Bronze & Glow

I was so hesitant to buy this product because it is quite expensive. Also, the bronzer seemed a little too light for my skin tone. I gave it shot and all I can say is wow. It’s my go to, every day look. A little tinted moisturizer (Nars) or light foundation (Guerlain Lingerie De Peau Aqua Nude), a quick swirl of bronzer in a “3” technique on each side, a little highlighter, done. The highlighter is amazing bc it looks super glittery but it’s not. It’s just a nice glow. I’m 43- I do not need glitter and heavy contour as it just ages. This is perfect although I do with it didn’t kick up so much product when you brush. I feel like you lose a lot of product in the dust up during application. Definitely will repurchase and maybe consider the darker shade for summer.

Lip Liners -Charlotte Tilbury -Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk

I do like this product. I just don't find it distinctive or special enough to warrant the cost or hype There are a few of her items I think are worth the price but ... not this. The talk about this product has always been glowing and I thought the color or consistency of it would be something outstanding. Frankly, I didn't find it much different than some good drugstore liners and certainly not much better than higher end ones from Dior or Chanel. I did not return this - I will use it - but I am not in love with it. Considering the discussion around it ... I should be. If you are going high end, I suggest Dior ( at least you can go into Sephora and select a specific color ) and if you like drugstore, I recommend with NYX or Rimmel.

The top is a bit hard to use, but I love love love the contour. It blends so nicely with liquid foundation. It's my favorite contour. The highlight is not as good for me but it works well.

For years I had heard and read excellent reviews of the contour powder in Charlotte Tilbury's Sculpt & Glow. However, I prefer the finish of liquid/creme products on my dry skin. As such, I was so eager to try Tilbury's Contour Wand that I purchased this set as soon as it was released, rather than holding out for the reviews of beauty bloggers and MakeupAlley users. Big mistake!

CONS

- First of all, this wand has been completely mismarketed as a contouring product when it is clearly a bronzer. A matte finish alone does not a contour make!

- I purchased the light wand, and found it both too dark and too warm-toned for my complexion. If I wasn't using a self-tanner, it would have been completely unusable on my naturally NW10 skin. This shade would be most suited to someone with medium to tan coloring and warm undertones.

- What frustrated me most about the product was how difficult it was to blend!!! When you first squeeze it out, the formula is similar in consistency to liquid foundation, but it dries down very quickly to an almost powdery texture, making it extremely difficult to blend out seamlessly, let alone to layer. I had to stop 'drawing' on the contour in lines and start simply dotting it on instead, otherwise there was always a hint of a line left over. As Youtube reviewers have noted, it also has the tendency to lift off your foundation underneath. The end result is a patchy appearance.

- Although I didn't buy the set for the highlighter, I find it to be too extreme and frosty, though this comes down to personal preference.

- The wands only contain 0.41 fl oz of product each.

- I don't find it convenient having the product in stick form. To me, it would be just as simple (and more hygienic) to have the product in palette form and use a brush to apply. I suppose the stick is more portable, but creme contour is not really something you touch up during the day, after having already set your face with powder?

PROS

- I do appreciate that you 'unlock' the tube and squeeze out product gradually, so that the remainder doesn't dry out or oxidise.

- It's scentless.

- It has a matte, lightweight feel and finish.

Lip Liners -Charlotte Tilbury -Lip Cheat in Bond Girl

on 2/7/2018 6:24:00 PM

Recently Charlotte Tilbury came out with new Lip Cheats in Bond Girl and Walk of Shame. I've had the Matte Revolution lipstick in Bond Girl for several months now. It was my go-to in the fall because the shade was so versatile. It seemed to be a chameleon that worked with everything I wore, so it was a good one to carry with me.

Charlotte describes it as a natural berry. More specifically I'd say it's a plummy rose with a tinge of brown. Deeper and more dramatic than my usual nudes, it looks sophisticated with a suit. Bond Girl is medium in depth. It's not as vampy as Night Crimson, but if you want a softer look, you can dab it on lightly. A great companion blush to Bond Girl is Sex on Fire. I've used my Bond Girl lipstick so much that I've worn down the squared tip of the bullet. I was glad to get the matching liner so I can be more precise. Sometimes with nudes I skip lip liner, but when wearing a darker shade or a vivid red, I like a defined mouth for photographs. It looks more polished.

I happen to love this formula. It's creamy and glides on easily but stays in place rather than sliding around. This is especially important for those who overdraw as Charlotte does in her tutorials. During my average work day I don't have to reapply this lip liner. Urban Decay 24/7 lip pencils and MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencils are good, too, but Charlotte Tilbury's Lip Cheats are my favorite pencils. However, I do have to reapply the Bond Girl lipstick after I eat or drink. It doesn't last as long as the matching liner.

It's a little cheaper to buy the Luscious Lip Slick set in Bond Girl, which includes the Matte Revolution lipstick and the matching Lip Cheat lip liner for $52. Separately you pay $22 for the pencil and $34 for the lipstick, so you save $4 by buying the kit. The only downside (other than the price) is that you have to sharpen Lip Cheats; they are not automatic swivel-ups.

Ingredients according to charlottetilbury.com:

Cyclopentasiloxane, Synthetic Wax, Polybutene, Isododecane, Hydrogenated Cottonseed Oil, Ceresin, Ozokerite, Cera Microcristallina/Cire Microcristalline, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, [May Contain/Peut Contenir (+/-): Mica (Ci 77019), Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499), Red 7 Lake (Ci 15850), Red 6 (Ci 15850), Blue 1 Lake (Ci 42090), Yellow 5 Lake (Ci 19140), Red 28 Lake (Ci 45410)].

Lip Liners -Charlotte Tilbury -Lip Cheat - Walk of Shame

I already had the Matte Revolution lipstick in Walk of Shame, a deep rose color that I wear when I'm not quite in the mood for a true red. So as soon as I saw that there was a new matching lip liner in Walk of Shame, I snapped it up. I don't always line my lips, but I know that in photos my lips look better when I do. It's a cleaner, more precise, polished look when the liner and lipstick match exactly and you can emphasize the rounded peaks of the upper lip. Sometimes I overdraw the bottom lip slightly for a fuller pout, something I can only do with Charlotte's formula because most lip liners are too smeary. The Lip Cheat formula is creamy when applied. This lip liner lasts all day for me but I do have to reapply the lipstick after I eat or drink. There is also a new Lip Cheat pencil in the shade Bond Girl. This liner does require sharpening; it's not an automatic pencil.

The Lip Cheats are $22 each. Walk of Shame is one of the trickier shades in her line to dupe in another brand, so I am willing to pay this price for the color as well as the long-wearing formula.

Ingredients as listed on the Charlotte Tilbury website:

Cyclopentasiloxane, Synthetic Wax, Polybutene, Isododecane, Hydrogenated Cottonseed Oil, Ceresin, Ozokerite, Cera Microcristallina/Cire Microcristalline, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, [May Contain/Peut Contenir (+/-): Mica (Ci 77019), Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499), Red 7 Lake (Ci 15850), Red 6 (Ci 15850), Blue 1 Lake (Ci 42090), Yellow 5 Lake (Ci 19140), Red 28 Lake (Ci 45410)].

I got a sample of this for $11.00 from e-bay, I was willing to do this for fear of being disappointed! .Glad I did as it is a nice
cream, feels good, but does nothing like it is advertised to do. I saw a video with Charlotte applying it to someone's face and her skin looked really healthy and luminous! After applying this Magic cream I could see a slight glow but nothing more than I get with my other facial creams which cost far less money. I am so glad I didn't buy a whole jar I would have kicked myself.

I can easily say that this is the most perfect lipstick color I have ever had in my life. To me, it is a “rouged chocolate” in old MAC terms. Absolutely mlbb shade lightly applied, with or without lip balm for extra moisture. For reference I’m a MAC NC15-20 and this compliments my skin perfectly. Beautiful packaging, lovely vanilla scent. Looks so very natural on my lips. Highly recommend!

I have a few golden godess, uptown girl and dolce vita . I love the consistency I don't mind the packaging I don't expect a brush id use a proper brush anyhow, an at £42 the packaging is better than a high street not as good as £100 a shot palette so that's fine. What my issue is I find the actual eyeshadow quite irritating my eyes itch mainly with the dolce vita palette. I get itchy red eyes an after I take it off my eye lids are sore does anyone else find this? Its not the glitter shadow just the normal base shade ??? Does anyone else have this issue

What can I say a smudge is all I get within seconds I have 2 black eyes the only way I can use is with a waterproof mascara over the top but why pay for yet another mascara? Until she works out the issue with this formula I'm avoiding it .

Gorgeous MLBB. I use it with the lipstick and it is lovely. The pencil is buttersoft, gives good colour pay-off and you can work pretty precisely. Lasts okay, the lipstick is the one that fades a bit too quick too my taste.

It has taken me months before I dared to take the plunge and order this as I had doubts that this colour would look good on me. I was wrong and not afraid to admit it! This is THE ONE & ONLY REAL MLBB for me. I don’t really like my own lip colour but this enhances it and makes them look so unbelievably good and as if I am not really wearing anything. It is matte but not a flat matte, it has some depth and luminosity, making it an absolute favourite for minimum make-up days or to be combined with an elaborate eye look. Having said that, it doesn’t last very long on me (even in combo with the lip liner) and the packaging is meh IMHO. It is an expensive lipstick and the material feels kind of cheap. I would definitely rebuy this if I ran out or lost it but it is not a perfect 5 in my book.
