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!

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

I have all the products you are asking about. Here's a couple thoughts: 

 

Foundation: Works nicely. It does oxidize a bit. I've helped with that by patting the face with a tissue right after application. I also use translucent powder during the day to cut down on it. The product has good coverage. Be aware that it does contain parabens. If you are staying away from those, you won't like this product. 

 

Airbrush powder: it's very finely milled and absolutely gives an airbrush look. I like it alot. 

 

Blushes: They are some of my favorites. I have Ecstasy and Sex on Fire. Both have a bit of shimmer, but don't show pores in an odd way on the face. I get great last power and they are both quite pigmented. 

 

 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

thank you so much!!! i have decided to take the plunge 😄 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

I like her eye quads and blushes. The quality is very good, they last, are well-pigmented but not quite up to par with Tom Ford (but her stuff is also cheaper). I wasn't overly impressed with the one KISSING lipstick I got (Stone Rose) because the pigment was just average but quite moisturizing however did not last long. I have 3 eye quads which I love (Vintage Vamp, The Rebel and Rock Chick) and I'd have a few more if it wasn't for the fact that I get distracted by new stuff. I also really like the 2 blushes I have (First Love and Love is the Drug). My fav is FL cuz it goes with almost any other colors I'm wearing since it looks like a nude color on me. I'm not sure it would do well at all on darker skin. But she's got some other pretty, darker blushes as well. The lip pencil I have is average, works fine but nothing special for the price.

 

I I recently got Love Liberty matte lipstick. I am a big fan of Tom Ford's mattes but CT's (at least this color) takes several swipes for full coverage. I'd almost swear it has the slightest sheen to it. But it lasted well on me and the color is beautiful.  

 

I only have experience with her color products. And now that I'm speaking of them, I think I'll wear one of the quads to work later. 🙂

 

 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

I love the matte lipsticks…though others had issues with the formula.  I actually did as well, but only with the shade that is my favorite.  I have an eye pencil and that is one item I'd caution you on.  Beautiful but the wear time was pretty bad.  I'm PM you links to the videos I did on the matte lipstick.  The video add in hasn't been working, at least for me, for about a week!

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

Has anyone (who did this offer direct from CT) receive yet their Light Wonder foundation samples, from March?

 

 

I have emailed them, they did say they ran out and getting more samples, but curious if anyone received.

 

 

 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

yay let me know! what offer was this btw? 😄 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

They were giving away sample sets in color ranges, placed like an order but zero cost. The info page still exists: TILBURY TRY-ON: LIGHT WONDER 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

I haven't tried too many CT items. I only own eyeshadow and blusher. If I had to choose one, the blusher is def my favorite. The colors are lovely and has good pigmentation. 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

which blusher have you tried? 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

I have first love, which I thought would be too light but it's still pigmented! I really want to try sex on fire

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

I have and love several CT blushers, and to be frank the quality is better than my Tom Ford ones. I also love her Wonder Glow, and am onto my second bottle of this. I also have and love many of her lipsticks. I really really like her foundation, but have yet to find a shade that comes anywhere close to my skin tone ...

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

We're finally getting CT here in Canada this summer--can't wait to pick up some blushes and lipsticks. Which ones do you recommend ballerinagrl? 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

oohhh I want to try the Wonder Glow as well 😄 I think there is a shade of her foundation that is a good match for me so I think I will bite the bullet and just try it. 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

the filmstar bronze and glow keeps going in and out of my nordstrom shopping cart. i can't decide....help me decide...lol. how do you like it?

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

I like it  - BUT, if you like a darker contour it is not right for you. I am NC20-25 and the bronzer works for me but just take note that it is shimmery. 😄 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

I like her compact finish powder, but it's been slightly, just slightly dry for my skin (which is already dry without powder). It feels somewhat similar to Guerlain compact on my face. It indeed blurs out pores/uneven texture, but I don't have too many large pores. I think it's pretty good. If you were to get only one among those three, I recommend this one. 

 

I also tried her light wonder foundation. It's pretty lightweight, luminous finish (but not enough for me, since I like dewy finish), but for me, this foundation was somewhat temperamental. When my skin's extra dry (lack of sleep), it would look horrible on me. It's a good one, but I have dewy/luminous foundation with light/medium coverage that I prefer over this. 

 

I haven't tried her lipsticks or blush, but I've heard good things about lipsticks. Shades seem pretty enough. 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

Light wonder foundation is sheer, but the coverage is buildable. It gives you a similar result as Burberry fresh glow foundation. I think it's a good foundation if you don't own any foundation with a glowing finish. I wouldn't say it's my HG though.

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

I have one CT lipstick - Velvet Underground.  This lipstick makes her collection I think.

 

I tested the cream eye shadows today and they are excellent.

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

I think CT's colour makeup is better than base makeup in general. 

Re: Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..

I agree Ivy.  I have heard good things about the bronzers and blushes - but they are not for me.
