A Look At Charlotte Tilbury*

A Look At Charlotte Tilbury Makeup…..

How it all began….!

Over 1 year ago I started blogging and I remember hitting “publish” on that very first post!! I was so nervous because I didn’t know what to expect. I hadn’t done any research, I had no clue how to style photos, what to write or even how to edit. At that point I was still new to the blogging community and din’t know how it all worked. All I knew was that I wanted to write about beauty products so that’s what I did…

So many months down the line I would have to say that I’m not an expert on blogging but I have learnt some things along the way and that is TO BE YOU, let yourself be seen in your posts. Write how you want to write. Write about what you want to write about but most importantly remember that your blog is your blog, there are no rules(apart form copying others I guess!) in beauty, your blog is your own and you should enjoy the journey!! 

Well let’s just say one of the most loveliest moments in my time as a blogger was receiving a lovely parcel from a brand I discovered on Instagram. I remember swooning over a lipstick and was told all about Charlotte Tilbury Makeup. I fell in love, I wanted everything. All of the website looked incredibly satisfying and all the products looked amazing!! Of course I had a wish-list and that wish-list grew until I received “The Rock Chick” look for my birthday a couple of years ago.  I had wanted some of her makeup for the longest time and was gifted one of her “10 iconic looks”. From that moment the obsession began and let me tell you my Charlotte Tilbury stash is more than just a stash it’s a beauty lovers dream!! 🙂 I absolutely loved the products and how they made me look. I watched Charlotte’s youtube channel for tips on how to use her products and how to create her looks and tot his day I still do even if I have watched them a thousand times…

Now of course I did start buying Charlotte’s products before deciding to blog about them. I knew what products I was loving and those that I was still on the fence about. I have to admit not every high end/luxury brand has products everyone will love, there are going to be those that your a bit unsure of.. Over time I have fell in love with a lot of her products especially the lipsticks and luxury eye quads. There’s just something about the brand that makes me feel like a super bad ass glitzy princess (is that even a thing?!) and I’m forever posting about the brand on my Instagram and blog! I feel that these types of posts especially when there about Charlotte Tilbury seem to be much more popular, I don’t know why though!! The parcel I received quite recently was of course a HUGE box from the team over at Charlotte Tilbury…

I was so thrilled to have been contacted by them and they said they were going to send me some products over to try….reaction (very high pitched scream!). I didn’t know what to expect, I though to myself do they know what I have, do they know what products I love so I waited and the WAIT was definitely worth it!! 🙂

Lets talk about what they sent over! 

When the box arrived it was all sent over in the original Charlotte Tilbury box with the burgundy tissue paper and sealed envelope!! I just love how they send your order form in an envelope, so luxurious. When I looked int he box they had packaged everything up so nicely and it was protected well. I wasn’t expecting a LOT and when I seen what was inside I literally died….literally! They had a sent a mix of beauty and skincare items, things I have tried already and love and products I had never tried. They did so well choosing what items to send over to me!! 

Filmstar Bronze and Glow

This product I absolutely love and has to be one of my favourites from the whole range. The packaging of the product is so luxurious and is travel friendly too. It’s a compact with a sculpt shade/bronzer and a highlighter.  I mainly use this product to contour with my shade is the “light/medium” palette. The sculpt shade is perfect for my skin tone and the highlight is subtle yet gives the most gorgeous glow on the face. This is the product that everyone knows I love and you can tell when I wear it.  I’m almost out of the one I’m using so it’s nice to have a back up..

Full Fat lashes

I believe this mascara was Charlotte’s first launch. It’s designed to give you those magical full lashes we all want. Now I have heard mixed reviews about this product, others prefer legendary lashes whilst some prefer full fat lashes. I actually love full fat lashes as I already have long lashes and what this does just makes them look fuller, I love the effect it gives, definitely a favourite. I’m so happy they sent one over as I had ran out too..

Unisex Healthy Glow

When this product launched I was so intrigued. Charlotte made this product for both men and women which I find interesting! Healthy Glow is a hydrating tinted moisturiser. You can of course wear it alone or you can use it as a primer. It does have natural tanning pigments in it and it adapts to your skin tone. I absolutely fell in love with this when it was released as I used a bottle of it to begin with. I used it instead of my normal primer and it still made my makeup look beautiful and of course glowing too!! I also had some samples of it too that my mum and auntie tried out, bearing in mind there much older than me and they fell in love with this too!! It’s not just a product you can wear in the summer, it’s designed to be used all year round…

Charlotte’s Magic Cream

This magic cream is the “magic cream” Charlotte uses on all the celebrities she applies makeup looks on. I remember looking on Charlotte’s website and just staring at it for hours thinking to myself ” do I?” or “don’t I?”. Of course that meant purchasing it, obviously I did because I wanted to know what it was like especially on my skin. I work such long hours, barely get the amount of sleep I need and this cream is amazing!! I’ll wake up in the morning, look at my skin and think “magic cream” just to give me a bit of a glow to my skin. I went through my very first pot of this so quickly as I was using in day in day out and YES I did see a difference when I had ran out of it!! It is a pricey product but it’s definitely worth the splurge. Of course I’ve had samples of this and mini pots too so much so that when the team over at Charlotte Tilbury sent me the MAGIC CREAM in a 50 ml size I was like WHAT!!! I hadn’t had a full size product in a while pretty much because I can’t always afford the price so receiving this was a dream as it is one of my favourite moisturisers not just from CT but across the board in the beauty industry…

The Feline Flick

I first tried this product when I was gifted the Rock Chick look for my birthday. Back then I always used to wear a liquid liner and hadn’t found one with a tip that was super easy to use. The feline flick has a felt tip that makes application so quick, easy and precise. I don’t wear liquid liner as much these days but when I do Charlotte’s product is the one I reach for. I hadn’t had one of these for a while so I want to thank the team for sending one over!! I like to use these for night time makeup looks and even date night makeup 🙂 If you unsure on applying liquid liner this product can be picked up to practice with too…

Kissing lipstick in Bitch Perfect

Funnily enough CT sent over a lipstick I have had my eyes on for a while. I had never tried this shade before as I didn’t know if it was more of a nude shade or a pink shade. I’m not a huge fan of pink lipsticks but if they have the correct undertone I’m all for them. I spoke to a lot of people on Instagram that seem to love Bitch Perfect and have worn it for occasions and even their own wedding days. Bitch Perfect is the shade on the right in the photo above. It looks like the perfect nude shade right yet it is described as a  peach toned nude lipstick. I have many other nude shades form Charlotte Tilbury and can’t believe I’ve never tried this one. I guess now is the opportunity too…

Matte Revolution in Red Carpet Red

I don’t own a lot of red lipsticks as I find the shade scares me a little. It’s such a bold lip and never really been a shade I’ve ever wanted to try out. I reach for more berry and brown toned lipsticks in the autumn and winter. But for some reason when this arrived I was so excited because the shade looks incredibly gorgeous!! It was at this point that I started looking at other red shades on Charlotte’s website.  I love having darker hair in the winter and pairing your makeup look with a bold lip is so daring yet super pretty at the same time. I am a huge lover of Charlotte’s matte lipstick formula and I can see this shade being worn a lot in the upcoming seasons. I think CT has made way for another obsession waiting to happen…don’t you think?…

From T-B the shades are Bitch Perfect, Red Carpet Red and Pillowtalk Lip Liner

Lip Cheat In Pillowtalk

I absolutely love Charlotte’s lip liners. There true to pigment, creamy and go on so nicely!! The team sent over the shade “Pillowtalk” and I’m so grateful as this is one of my favourite shades. Now we all know Pillowtalk has become one of Charlotte’s iconic lip liners so much so that a lipstick was made in the same shade, I have that one too. Pillowtalk liner is described as a nudey-pink shade and is perfect to wear with a lot of “nude” shades by Charlotte Tilbury. I love pairing Pillowtalk with Penelope Pink, Super Cindy and of course the Pillowtalk lipstick. It’s such a wearable shade and the colour is so so gorgeous 🙂 So happy I have a back up for when my existing one runs out…

Legendary Lashes Volume 2

Last but not least the team sent over another mascara. I was so thrilled to receive this as I love the first legendary lashes mascara. Im a huge fan of mascara anyway so when I saw Charlotte released a second one I knew I wanted to try it out. I haven’t tried this one yet as I’m currently using up my existing mascara. The design of the packaging is beautiful as always and the mascara comes in a gold tube and has the fluttery eyelashes on the outside box. I also found the wand to be much thicker than the original which I love. So excited to try this one loves…

So there you have it, that’s the contents of the parcel the lovely team over at Charlotte Tilbury sent out to me!! I want to THANK them so so much for even recognising me and seeing my content. Of course contacting me was the best thing ever and it was my dream to work with CHARLOTTE TILBURY!! Having people like YOU who follow me on Instagram and read my posts would never have got me to where I am today. Especially receiving parcels like that!! When I started blogging I never set out to receive “free stuff” or write “to get free products” I did it purely because it’s what I love outside of my full time job. Receiving products on the off chance are purely opportunities I never knew I would get. I wouldn’t consider it being “lucky” as such because you have to have to produce  content you love, you have to have motivation to be able to write, determination to keep going and most of all LOVE what you do because without that there’d be no journey. Doing all of this around a very busy and demanding role is what aspires me to keep going and and I will continue to support and love the brand…sorry for the babble lol….

Have you ever tried Charlotte’s products, do you have a wish-list just like I did??
