My name is Joanne and I am a Charlotte Tilbury addict. I’m not even sorry. The funny thing is is that this time last year I didn’t own even one piece of Charlotte Tilbury makeup but once I started I haven’t stopped!! So what if you’re looking at this thinking, I’d like to try this brand but I’ve no idea where to begin. This is where I swoop in to help because I’ve bought all of the makeup on your behalf….You’re welcome!!
These are my top picks from what I have tried as a self confessed Charlotte Tilbury-aholic;
Colour Chameleon Eyeshadow Pencils
These are genius if you have minimum time and want to make it look like you’ve made an effort with your eye makeup. I have two shades, Amber Haze which is gorgeous bronzey brown shade and Smokey Emerald which unsurprisingly is green!! They are creamy to apply and blend like a dream. Incredibly easy to work with that you can just blend them into the eye with your finger if you wish. They’re also incredibly long lasting, they don’t move after you apply them. They give the perfect smokey eye in minutes!!
I don’t own a lot of cream blushers because honestly I’ve never found one that didn’t make me look like Aunt Sally. I have this one in the shade Moon Beach, oh my word it is divine. To me this is a blush and highlighter all in one because it gives the skin such a dewy finish. It’s a really universal shade too, lovely on my paler skin but would be equally fabulous with a tan. I will definitely be re-purchasing this.
Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder
If you read Beauty Blogs frequently then you’ll already have heard a lot about this powder. Every bit of praise you’ve heard about it is justified. I was completely influenced into buying this by Karen from Lovely Girly Bits cause lads if she says it’s good, then it’s good!! I bought this in the shade Fair and it’s perfect for my skin tone. It’s now a staple in my handbag, it gives the skin a beautiful flawless finish. I would certainly agree that the powder has a blurring effect on the skin and at 38 I’m all about the blurring. A tiny gripe I have with it and it’s nit picking to be honest is I find there is a bit of fall out with it so just be careful if you’re wearing black.
Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk
Are you even allowed to talk about Charlotte Tilbury if you don’t mention Pillow Talk? This lip liner came and conquered the beauty industry when it was released, it’s absolutely iconic. It’s the perfect nude liner. It suits pretty much every single skin tone there is and it became such an iconic shade that Charlotte went and made a complimentary lipstick. Charlotte Tilbury lip pencils are really velvety and line the lips effortlessly without dragging. A must for every make up bag in my humble opinion.
Filmstar Bronze and Glow
Unintentionally I’ve left my favourite Charlotte Tilbury product until last. I had heard so many great things about Filmstar Bronze and Glow before I bought it but with a €65 price tag I was reluctant to splurge. In the end I got it from my beautiful girls this year as my Mother’s Day present. It did not disappoint. I got it in the Light to Medium shade and it compliments my fair skin perfectly. The contour shade blends so easily and the highlighter gives your skin just a pop of highlight, no disco balls here!! I feel like I can’t blog about this without mentioning the glorious Art Deco packaging, it is beyond spectacular. I know it’s a big investment but this is definitely one product I know I will be replacing over and over again.
So there you go, my top picks for any Charlotte Tilbury novices. Just to clarify, this is a highlight reel as opposed to a complete list of favourites. I have MANY MANY others but these are the products I would recommend starting with if you’re thinking of building up your own Charlotte Tilbury collection.
I’ve spoken at length to anybody who would listen about my love of Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks, I even wrote an ode to her Matte Revolution lipstick The Queen here. I’m also absolutely loving her Hollywood Flawless Filter Illuminator at the moment but I think that deserves a post of it’s own. So stayed tuned for that one!!
