Brand Focus: Charlotte Tilbury

15 March 2018

As I mentioned in this post, about my first ever lipstick, you may have seen that I rave about Charlotte Tilbury. For all my teens and early twenties I have always been loyal to my number one make up brand Nars until I discovered CT. I joined the pretty, gold packaged side and have never looked back.

The other day I decided to spoil myself, after keeping all my John Lewis vouchers from birthdays and Christmas to treat myself to a few of her goodies. First off I started with re-purchasing a new tube of the Light Wonder in Medium 5. I love this stuff and think it gives off such a lovely dewy glow. I am definitely one for a more sheer foundation and stay clear of thicker, full coverage ones as I hate when they feel heavy on my skin, and prefer to add a bit of colour using this lightweight foundation then topping up with a concealer on blemishes, circles and what not. 

I then bought a few lipsticks and have such high praises for the matte collection that CT has. My ultimate favourite is Pillow Talk as I'm a new lipstick wearer this glides on like a second skin. I then wanted something a little lighter and opted for Kidmans Kiss which was a gorgeous matte petal pink. I do love this but have only worn it out nights out as I haven't got the confidence to rock a pink lip on an ordinary day, lol. Next up I wanted my first ever red lipstick. I knew I didn't want a bright bright red as I knew I would never have the balls to wear/pull it off. So when I saw the online exclusive Shanghai Nights I needed it! I love this formula and the way it looks genuinely makes me feel good and not like a toddler who got their hands on their mothers makeup! Finally I then bought Bond Girl and oh my. I didn't think anything would replace my love of Pillow Talk but this definitely over rides it! I love the deep berry red colour and the way it finishes off any make up look.

When I first purchased Pillow Talk, I knew I had to have the Filmstar Bronze and Glow Palette because have you seen it?  The first time I saw this palette I knew it was going to be a love affair. I bought it mainly for the compact because I wanted to look like a Hollywood badass whilst applying lipstick (£50 to use it just as a compact, when it looks like that hell yes!) I then of course dabbled with the bronzer and highlight and swiftly fell in love. I love the bronzing powder and it has become my number one now for contouring. I have big love for it as it chips away at my hamster cheeks and I can see serious sculpting happening which means if it gives me some sort of cheek bone its staying.

For Christmas I then purchased the Beauty Glow Instant Look in a Palette and can you just look at it for a moment and look how pretty it is? I heard good things about this palette and was definitely in the market for a travel palette haha is that a thing? I love that this one just has every thing and would love a future reinvention of it having a built in foundation bit as I am cursed when travelling with foundation. I always get an explosion of smashed bottles or lost lids. Any how back to how amazing this palette already is, one of my favourite things about it is the three step eye shadows that are brilliant for day and night. I actually need to stop using this as I want to use it solely for travelling but I can't help myself. At least this leaves me with an excuse to buy some more bits!

Next on my list is:

Are you a fan of Charlotte or do you think I have a problem haha?
