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 😄 Thanks in advance!

This does look interesting @Mochapj @Kim888

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

@Mochapj @Interesting !! I wonder if this is supposed to be a blush or more like a finishing powder like the hourglass ones 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

Wayne Goss has published his review of the matte shadows, which includes application. He called them dreadful and used terms like awful and nightmare. He showed how a brush with product drags/catches the skin and how it's difficult to blend multiple shades smoothly. He suggested they would be better suited for younger people with tighter skin on their eyelids.

Oh this made me giggle @TraceyEB .😂 and his face!  Thank you for sharing it! I love it that he calls it likes he sees it!

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

@Sunnysmom, I've never heard him wince and groan as he did trying to blend these shadows. I think this formula is only good for a single shadow and adding something sparkly on top. A big letdown in what should have been a wonderful addition to her line.

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

Yup that had to hurt him to even do it @TraceyEB . That could be a good idea to save it tho with the sparkly on top! Sadly I suspect this product won’t stick around too long! 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

I am new to Charlotte Tilbury as well but am in love with the Airbrush flawless finish Complexion Perfecting Micro Powder. This compact finishing powder is perfect for setting your makeup or I even wear it alone with concealer for a more natural skin look. I have medium colored skin and the color 2 medium is perfect for me. It works wonders on keeping my skin from getting oily during the day too. I hope you try it, you won’t be disappointed.

Rebecca from Not Fit For Print Beauty reviewed the new Matte Eyes to Mesmerise. She found the matte formula to be very different, likening it to putty vs. the mousse-y original Eyes to Mesmerise. She used a cosmetic spatula to remove the product and placed it on the outer lid to keep it from setting while she applied it using fingers. She said it warmed on the eyes and removed with an oil-based makeup remover. Her bottom line: It is very good at being a matte base product that won't budge. It can also be difficult.

 

Charlotte Holdcroft used a brush to obtain and apply the shadows. She described the formula as velvety and crease-resistant.

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

@TraceyEB @Sunnysmom I've watched about 5 YouTube reviews on the new matte formula and NONE of them have been positive.

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

I’m so sad about these lol. They came out of nowhere and i was so excited. I’ve since seen 0 good reviews and i can’t have something drier than a Mac paint pot. 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

@CookieGirl1, it's really disappointing to see the poor reviews for a new product. It shouldn't be difficult to remove and apply a cream eyeshadow. I have seen some reviews where it works for people and many where it hasn't. I hope CT reformulates this product.

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

@TraceyEB Sometimes I wonder how products that seem to overall have such poor performance ever make it through production...

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

Thanks for doing the work for us @CookieGirl1 ! 😊 What a shame. I wonder how @TraceyEB will like hers. Maybe there’s a good trick to layering it as she mentions that makes it work. Has to be some thinking by CT with this product. 🤔 I think I remember some old BB pots that seemed kind of putty like as well . Would that be right? Or someone else maybe. 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

@Sunnysmom  I still have some of those BB pots.  They were like putty, but had enough silicone in them to spread easily, at least the ones I have do.  I'm kind of afraid to try these though.  Even using an eye primer makes my eyes red for a day after removing my makeup, so this would probably not be good.

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

I need to look also @Ispend2much6 . Pretty sure I have 1 as well. I feel like mine dried out though it’s been awhile since I looked at them. Agree on the primer too. The state of my fragile eyelids make any of these probably unworkable sadly. Something more gentle with a bit more slip underneath would have to work for me like a Nars stick or Trinny pot. I’ll go look at them but probably have to pass which is a shame. The idea seems good as I like a good cream shadow as you do. Maybe we will be happily surprised when we hear how Tracey likes them. 😊

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

@Sunnysmom It sounds like the formulation is overall somewhat dry and difficult to blend or work with and that it's lacking in pigmentation.

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

Hmm @TraceyEB , good info. Not sure what I think now, how about you?!

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

@Sunnysmom, to my oily eyelids, this sounds like a product that might apply without the need for eye primer and has longevity without creasing; on the other hand, it doesn't sound very exciting to have and use. The stiffness reminds me of BB matte cream eyeshadow sticks that haven't been used for a while and can feel tight on the eyelids unless warmed. Am still going to try the formula.

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

Yes maybe so @TraceyEB . I have one of those matte eye sticks as well and here it sits. Ugh. I probably won’t try one yet. Love to hear your thoughts when you do though. 🥰
