If you are a lover of luxury makeup, then you are probably familiar with Charlotte Tilbury. The red-haired beauty maven and award-winning celebrity makeup artist has been a shining star in the makeup industry for quite some time. She caught my eye when she launched her cosmetics company in 2012, which caused a lot of buzz and made me eager to try out her products.
The first time I ever laid eyes on Charlotte’s skincare and makeup line in person was in May of 2014 at her stunning cosmetics counter in Selfridges in London.
It was love at first sight. (Are you singing Kylie Minogue now?)
I was so blown away by everything that I became paralyzed with indecisiveness and instead of purchasing something, I didn’t buy anything! Yes, I know! I’ve been seriously working on this trait so I don’t make this mistake again.
Note to self: When a new cosmetics line launches and it’s not yet available in your home country and you have access to it, just buy SOMETHING! ANYTHING!
Her line was being released in the states soon after, so luckily I didn’t have to wait long. The first product I ever purchased was her Filmstar Bronze & Glow, which I received in a set from Nordstrom along with her Powder & Sculpt Brush. I have repurchased this bronzer and highlighter duo a few times and currently need to repurchase it again. Yes, it’s that good! I just can’t get enough. This might be my favorite product – if I had to choose only one.
I have found that almost every product that I have tried from Charlotte’s line has been worthy of the praise it receives. Of course, every person has different preferences and skin types, so a product that I revere may not work as well for someone else.
If you get a chance to visit one of her counters or boutiques, do it! You really need to experience these products in person so that you can get a feel for the high-quality texture of her products and pigments. You’ll want to get your hands on her luxe packaging, and of course swatch some shades to find your best match.
Something that makes this product line even more appealing are her amazing marketing campaigns (have you seen the models wearing her makeup!?) and that night crimson and rose gold packaging is so glam. I love the allure of such luxurious beauty products on display in my home and it makes me smile to reach for these items in my cosmetics bag.
Thankfully I am not the type of person who thinks these products are so beautiful that I can’t use them! They apply and perform extremely well for me. I just couldn’t leave them untouched. I just love using and wearing my Charlotte Tilbury products! I’ve shared a few photos of some of my current collection. I hope you enjoy and of course let me know if you have any questions!
Also, this is NOT an AD. All products pictured were purchased by me. I am clearly just a big fan of Charlotte Tilbury, but don’t worry, I’ll feature some of my other favorite brands soon!
When were you first mesmerized by Charlotte and her products? What’s your favorite product? Is there anything you are wanting to try that you haven’t gotten your hands on yet? Please share with me in the comments below. I would LOVE to hear about what you adore and why!
