This is not a sponsored post. I’m just a big fan. =) I first learned of Charlotte Tilbury after reading a profile of hers in a fashion magazine. I was intrigued by all the buzz for her “magic cream”, which she has been mixing backstage for many years, favored by her model and celebrity clients. I’m a sucker for packaging, and I absolutely love the glam Old Hollywood-esque art deco packaging of her products. I was so keen on getting my hands on her beauty products, but back then, no department stores were carrying her line (she’s based out of the UK). Now that our local Nordstrom store actually has a Charlotte Tilbury counter, it’s so much easier to sample her products and occasionally come back with a CT beauty treat for myself.
Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze & Glow Duo case is the most beautifully packaged makeup product I have to date. I initially thought Filmstar would be something I’d use at night, but after a few times, I realize the bronzer is best use during the day since it’s more subtle (I still use the highlight for evening). Her Bond Girl lipstick is now my go-to berry color. Since I’m not looking for a dramatic bordeaux look on most days, I instead swipe on Bond Girl for some color. Plus, it contains no parabens and it’s not drying on the lips (a big win for me). I love her Air Brush Microfine Powder so much that I try to save it for just special occasions. Her entire brush set is admittedly an investment. While I love her lightweight and beautiful brush set (it comes with a free makeup bag to hold your brushes), I can completely understand the hesitation to splurge over $300 on brushes. If you are interested in just trying out one or two of her brushes, I would recommend trying her Powder & Sculpt brush and Eye Blender brush first. Her domed Powder & Sculpt brush is one of my faves. I use that brush to both contour and highlight, and to swish and pop some of her blush onto my cheeks. I’m sharing below products I currently own (plus a few wishlist items!) below.
If you’re already a Charlotte Tilbury convert too, I’m curious to know what are some of your favorites!
