I bought the second Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette (the Seductive Beauty/Dolce Vita one) from John Lewis for £49. This palette differs from the first in terms of colour as the first palette was largely suited to very fair skin tones and was for the most part a cool toned palette.

Despite being relatively fair I chose to pass on the first palette and wait for the Dolce …

I have this lipstick in the shade "Night Crimson" which is a beautiful, deep, cool-toned red which is perfect for the autumn/winter season and bang on trend. It looks beautiful on my NC15 skin and not too vampy as it is more pinky than brown.

As noted by others, the packaging is to die for. The formula is not in the least bit drying - it is more so on the moisturising side if …

My first CT blush and one of my favourite CT products - I love this blush! It is very pigmented, long lasting and easy to apply, even on my fair skin. You get a decent amount of product too 8g which is more than Nars blushes (6g) so the price does not seem quite as exorbitant.

The shade of Love Glow is a cool-toned pink with a lovely warm-toned sheen which catches the light and looks …

Love this blush palette - it has the perfect shades for autumn/winter!

Pigmentation is amazing and the blushes are long-lasting and easy to blend meaning that the quality is on par with high end brands if not better.

Although this palette was likely made for darker skins I am a NC15 and I find these blushes easy to use so long as they are applied with a reasonably light …

Love this foundation! Until I tried it I always thought I needed a more fuller coverage foundation to even out my skintone but I am very willing to compromise on coverage when this foundation gives the most beautiful and natural looking glow.

I am an NC15 and shade 51 is a good match for me and doesn't seem to oxidise too much. I like to apply it with a beauty blender for maximum …

First of all, the packaging is to die for! It's so beautiful... The product itself is also gorgeous: the contour powder gives a really natural sculpted and bronzed look while being neither too cool nor too warm in colour. The highlight is also gorgeous and natural. I think both of these products would suit a lot of skin tones: I'm neutral and pale (nc10-15) and sometimes wear cool toned …Read more

I don't know why there's so much hype over this, it breaks me and many other people out! This foundation gives medium to full coverage, is long lasting and has a satin finish. It feels quite heavy on the face and is difficult to get off. It's not drying though! Id like it only for the fact that it gives me spots and doesn't come in my colour: I have pale neutral/warm skin …Read more

I bought this lipstick while in a hurry and I regret it. Can't really fault the formula, it's long lasting and not too drying, but the colour looks all wrong on me. I'm a NC10-15 and Snob is just too pale and/or too cool toned on me, it looks all wrong!

This product is expensive but amazing and long lasting so I would not think twice about repurchasing. I bought it in the shade 'Chantilly' which is perfect for my skin tone (nc10-nc15) as it is slightly lighter and also yellow toned. I know there are many similar products out there, probably for a fraction of the price, but if you are as pale as I am this is the only one which will work …Read more
