Testing New (To Me) Charlotte Tilbury Products

As I’m sure most of you already know, I’m a huge fan of Charlotte Tilbury. Her makeup is easily some of my favourites and I feel like her products really work for my skin and the look that I’m going for. 

The brand is constantly coming out with new products – so many, in fact, that I can barely keep up – and I’ve finally got my hands on some new-ish (and some pretty old) products that I’ve been dying to try.

All of these products are very glowy (because obviously) and highly-rated, so I thought I’d finally test them out for myself and let you guys know what I think!

BAR OF GOLD PALETTE

I desperately wanted the original Bar of Gold highlighter but never managed to get my hands on it, so when I saw that she had created a trio it became an instant need.

Now, I’m not particularly a ‘blinding highlight’ kind of person, I prefer to just look naturally radiant, so I was a little worried when I saw how intense these could be. I also felt that they looked a little glittery, which is something that I hate in a highlighter.

Needless to say, I shouldn’t have been worried. These actually look wet on the skin, somehow giving the appearance of a liquid rather than a powder. They can also be built up to be more intense or kept pretty subtle – much to my relief.

Obviously I love the original Bar of Gold shade, but I also surprisingly loved the rose gold shade a lot more than I thought I would. Although the gold is too dark for me to use as a highlighter, it makes a gorgeous eyeshadow.

I’m super impressed with this palette and I honestly haven’t picked up another highlighter since buying it – I’d definitely recommend.

HOLLYWOOD FLAWLESS FILTER

Ever since this launched I’d been wanting to get my hands on it, and the rave reviews only made me need it more.

finally picked one up a couple of days ago (after every store I went to had been out of stock in my shade), and I can totally see why everyone is so obsessed.

Hollywood Flawless Filter in Shade ‘3’

As soon as I used it my skin looked even more radiant than it ever has before (which I didn’t even think was possible), and my mum even told me my pores looked blurred – arguably one of the best compliments – and immediately went to buy one herself.

I use this primarily under my foundation as a glow booster, but I also love it for ‘no makeup’ makeup days as a really luminous base all on its own. I know some people like using this as a liquid highlighter too, so I’ll have to try that!

EYES TO MESMERISE CREAM SHADOWS IN ‘JEAN’ AND ‘BETTE’

I absolutely love cream eyeshadows, so I have no idea why it took me so long to try these. I actually bought ‘Jean’ first, around a week ago now, and as soon as I received it I ordered ‘Bette’ because I loved it so much.

I like my eyes to look really radiant and highlighted, and these totally give me that effect. They keep their sheen all day long but don’t crease or transfer – you really couldn’t ask for more.

The shade ‘Jean’ is a soft, champagne gold, whereas ‘Bette’ is a deeper bronze. Both look absolutely stunning patted all over the lid, and are completely mesmerising (ha) when they hit the light.

I actually think these are pretty enough to wear completely on their own, maybe with a little bronzer blended into the crease if you want something extra, making these perfect for a 5 minute makeup look.

 

So those were all the new(ish) things that I tried from Charlotte Tilbury – and who’s surprised that I loved them all? 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments what you’d recommend I try from the brand next! See you next time,
