I’ve been dying to get my hands on a few items from the Charlotte Tilbury line and finally took the plunge! I’m not one to order makeup online just because, I need to physically touch a makeup product before investing my hard earned cash. I practically read every review about the line before I was able to choose what I wanted to try out.
- Film Star Bronze & Glow – I really needed to see what all the fuss was about and it was on my wish-list for a very long time. The sculpt shade is gorgeous and can be used both as a bronzer/contour. I was worried that it wouldn’t show up on my NC 35 skin tone but luckily it does. I have a love hate relationship with the highlight because it’s a little too much for everyday (when it comes to my taste). It’s a yellow golden shade which picks up on camera beautifully but in person looks a bit unnatural. I’d probably use it for a night out or days where I want a highlight to be visible in pictures. If you look at this photo you’ll be able to see how the highlight peeks through. Overall I’m impressed with the quality and pigmentation not to mention the rose gold compact, drools!
- K.I.S.S.I.N.G Hepburn Honey Lipstick – These lipsticks are very reminiscent of a M.A.C Cremesheen formula. They’re very opaque but still moisturizing and can easily be sheered down. This particular shade has a peach base mixed with a browny nude. They have a vanilla scent but it’s very soft and faint.
- Mini Lipstick Charms Trio – This little trio set is a good way to sample the range if you’re skeptical about the lip shades like I was. It contains 3 popular shades which are Penelope Pink (pretty pink nude), So Marilyn (blue-based red), and Bitch Perfect (peachy pink with a shimmer).
- Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk – Currently the most raved about lip liner ! It’s a neutral shade with more of a cool-toned pink base. Its great for achieving a fuller lip and it isn’t dry like most lip liners tend to be. This stayed put on my lips all day, I did have some play time to blend the liner before it set.
*I’ll be uploading a video tomorrow using these products so stay tuned!
