When someone asks me what is my favourite beauty product I’m struggling to choose one as I love so many of them. If I had to choose some of my favourite makeup brands though, Charlotte Tilbury would be top of the list! It’s not only the fab products that have stolen my heart but also the glamorous packaging that makes every makeup bag look like a Hollywood star’s boudoir.
I keep adding Charlotte Tilbury products to my collection and my latest love is the Quick ‘N’ Easy make up kit for the Daytime Chic Look. The set came in a gorgeous bag in the brand’s signature rose gold and deep red colours and it included:
The mini (15ml) version of this iconic product is one of the best things about this kit! This primer works either underneath the foundation, over it or on its own and it’s perfect for giving a radiant, dewy, healthy look. It feels hydrating and leaves the skin very smooth filling-in fine lines and wrinkles. Among its ingredients, is the anti-aging BioNymph Peptide Complex which stimulates collagen, a fact that these days is music to my ears!
I am very fussy about eye pencils a) because I have rather sensitive eyes and b) because I am still far from mastering the art of the perfect flick. I need my eye pencils soft and easy to work with and this pencil didn’t let me down! It is enriched with a mix of fine opaque powders and oils which makes it very soft on the eye and easy to apply. I love its dark brown shade because it gives a subtle intensity to the eye. I was also happy to read on the website that it is enriched with allantoin which is supposed to be soothing for the delicate eye area.
Now this is the only product from the set that I have fixed feelings about. I absolutely love the bold black shade of the mascara, a perfect boost for my fair eyelashes. I also really like the shape of the brush which works really well for giving long lashes. What I don’t like is how clogged it is. I have never encountered anything like that to a newly bought mascara. Everytime I take the brush off the tube, big lumps of mascara come out of it. I’m not quite sure whether this is how it’s supposed to be or I just received a faulty product.
This product has become one of my Charlotte Tilbury favourites! Everything about it is perfect for me! The shade, the easy application and its multi-purpose nature as it can be used both as a blush and a lipstick. Its shade is a gorgeous a sun-kissed orange red that gives the perfect summer glow. It is creamy and hydrating and blends so beautifully on the skin giving a natural, dewy finish. I also love the fact that it is lightweight and buildable to easily adjust to the intensity of the look you are going for. It might be the only product I will need for the summer!
Here’s my make up look using these products!
Let me know if you have tried any of these products and what you think of them! Are there any more Charlotte Tilbury must haves that I should add to my list?
