Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

I already have the Filmstar bronze & glow palette but looking into some of her other products.

 

Does anyone have any experiences they would like to share esp with her Light Wonder Foundation, her blush and the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder? I'm interested in getting these three things but still on the fence about taking the plunge! 

 

Please let me know, many BTers opinions have helped me out on products before Smiley Very Happy Thanks in advance!

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

@flyte the loose one from HG?  I actually just bought the mini during the F&F sale to try it out.  I like it for the most part, better than most other powders that I've tried Smiley Happy.

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

@CookieGirl1It has a matte finish.

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

@SportyGirly125 Thanks, girl.  I want something with a SLIGHTY more luminous finish and I don't have a Sephora that carries CT near me so I don't have the opportunity to swatch anything.  Glad that now I know this so I don't shell out the cash Smiley Happy.

RE: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

So I've been eyeing the Bar of Gold trio palette. What do people think about it? Is it similar to something like the Hourglass Metallic Strobe palette from last year or NARS's? Thanks!

Re: RE: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

@flyte I have it but I can't compare it to the Nars or the Hourglass Palette that you mentioned.  I do love that you can use it wet or dry.  It is really pigmented and looks great on the skin.

Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

So I just purchased the Glow face palette. I've been on the fence (I don't know why since I love my Seductive face palette) I figured I shouldn't wait too much longer because I didn't purchase Supersonic Girl quad during the friends and family sale thinking I would get it during this sale, but it's OOS. Oh well, will probably use the Glow face palette more since my eyeshadow palettes are taking over.

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

Sephora has really dropped the ball on their CT stock in Canada. So many items are sold out, it seems like some have been OOS for weeks. Everything of hers that is in my loves list is currently unavailable: the setting powder, flawless filter, bronze and glow, goddess clay mask. On top of that, all of these products are also OOS: both sizes of the magic cream, almost all matte revolution lipsticks, all but one flawless filter, all shades of under eye powder, and all shades of magic away concealer. I'm not sure what's going on but I'm hoping it gets resolved quickly so I can pick up some items during the sale. 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

The Starlight quad is now live on the CT website for anyone who was still waiting for that!  

LUXURY PALETTE OF POPS

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

For those of you who have tried her Instant Look in a Palette, which one is better- the Smokey one on her website/Beautylish or the one on Sephora? I might pick one up on the next sale to try out her stuff.

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

@makeitup305 I'm the one who posted those swatches below so if you want a closer look any anything let me know I'm happy to post other pics when I get home from work!

 

I Like beauty glow over the smokey but Seductive is still my fave - not sure if that's available anymore though

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

@Kim888 thanks for your swatches! I tried the Beauty Glow in store and it seems right up my alley. I might pick it up at the VIB sale.

@Kim888, I hope you didn't mind me reposting your swatche...

@Kim888, I hope you didn't mind me reposting your swatches, I had taken a screenshot of them when I was trying to decide and they were very helpful. I ended up with Seductive a few months ago when Charlotte Tilbury ran her sale 🙂

Re: @Kim888, I hope you didn't mind me reposting your swatche...

haha of course not @Luvstravel ! glad you bumped the swatches  up especially now they are sold at sephora!

@makeitup305, here is some swatches someone had posted in...

Thanks @Luvstravel! I appreciate it!

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

@makeitup305 I have all 4 and I think the Smokey one is the weakest one of the lot. 

 

However it’s also the one that contains 4 of her FS products (bar of gold, one of her chic to chic blushes and filmstar bronzer.

 

im not sure which one Sephora carries but I think Seductive Beauty is the best one, personally. Natural Beauty is good if you have very fair skin but most of it barely shows up on me. 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

@Mochapj Thanks for your input! The Sephora one is Beauty Glow. I like it when I got to swatch it in store the other day. Sadly I don't think Seductive is available anymore.

RE: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

I was messing around with the Starlight palette today. After swatching it yesterday I was concerned whether it would be able to create a full look because it was not as opaque as the Supersonic Girl palette.

 

This shows the difference between applying it with brushes vs fingertips. I’ve again used her ‘Prime, Enhance, Smoke, Pop’ formula for shade placement as I assume that is how it was intended based on the sticker on the back.

 

Firstly, I wouldn't recommend using this palette with brushes because the glitter in this one is much more prone to fallout everywhere.

 

Beyond that though, the Prime shade (placed all over lid) was extremely transparent; even going over it several times with the brush (and then when I tried with my finger afterwards) I still see most of the colour of my eyelid coming through the clearish base.  In my photos this is most visible in the inner third of my eyelid. The Enhance shade (placed in outer third) was a bit more pigmented using either a brush or fingertip. The Smoke shade (placed upper outer third and crease) really only showed up as olive if I used my finger, otherwise it was just medium brown. Lastly the Pop shade (placed centre of lid) only showed green using my finger and multiple layers; with a brush it seemed to leave only gold sparkle behind.

 

Bottom line is I think this palette is probably better suited to being a glitter topper (pick a shade) for another look than for creating a full look on its own. With how messy and imprecise glitter application is with fingers, and the requirement that 3 of 4 shades need a fingertip application in order to actually show any colour it just doesn't seem like a palette that is conducive to a full look.

Thank you for this review.. ❤️ was planning on purchasing for today’s launch but have decided to skip after reading

Re: RE: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

@shimmerbait You’re welcome!

 

i was really looking forward to this palette when I saw it teased in July and  so disappointed by how sheer it ended up being ☹️ After buying the red one earlier I fully expected the pigmentation would be the same.

Re: RE: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

Well, @Mochapj, that's a little disappointing. Initially, I expected these palettes to be toppers and this seems to perform this way, yet CT intended them as a cohesive palette and this does so, kind of, by finger application and many layers of product. I'm curious how they work as a topper shades. Is the blue or green distinctive when applied over another shadow?
