Tilbury Surprise

If you have been reading my blog for quite a while now you will know that I am obsessed with everything Charlotte Tilbury, everything from the products to the actual package I just adore. If you also happen to have instagram you might of seen that Charlotte posted my photo that I took of her Hollywood Flawless Filter (review here) on her instagram a few weeks back now.

Today I thought I would share with you some of the beautiful products that Charlotte's Team very kindly sent me! As you can imagine I was rather excited when I received possibly the most beautifully wrapped gift box I have ever seen. Inside Charlotte's classic burgundy box was four wonderful beauty products.....

Full Fat Lashes Mascara, Penelope Pink Lipstick, Colour Chameleon in Golden Quartz and The Feline Flick Eyeliner. I have used the Full Fat Lashes Mascara and it's one of my all time favourite mascaras as it really does do what it says on the bottle, it adds volume, length & drama to my Lashes. I'm actually wearing it in the photo above and you can see how incredible it actually is, the other three products I haven't actually ever tried until now. Over the past two weeks I've been really putting these products to the test and they don't disappoint.

Penelope Pink lipstick is possibly the most perfect pinky nude lipstick, it really suits my fair skin and adds just the most beautiful warmth, it's of course in homage to Penelope Cruz. Really creamy formula and super pigmented! I honestly love Charlotte's lipsticks as they are very hydrating even her matte lipsticks aren't super drying on your lips they too are quite moisturising.

Feline Flick is something along with the Full Fat Lashes Mascara that I have been using every single day since I got them both. This eyeliner is incredible, it's jet black and has the finest pointed tip. It makes eyeliner so so easy if you struggle with eyeliner invest in this trust me, it's so good and easy to use, I love how it's also jet black, sometimes with pen eyeliner it can not be always as jet black when it dries, this however is. I'm just obsessed with this product.

Golden Quartz Colour Chameleon is something that I've never used before and was quite a different colour for me to venture into using on my eyes, however I actually really love this, very easy to blend and it does make blue eyes pop, it's designed for hazel eyes but never the less it does work really well. I haven't been wearing this everyday but when I have worn it I have added a bit of shimmer using the Stilla Liquid Eyeshadow in Smouldering Satin. Golden Quartz is a really beautiful shade however it isn't something I'd tend to reach for everyday but if you have hazel eyes or want to try a different eye makeup look like me then do check this out. 

If you want amazing quality products, then Tilbury is definitely the beauty department to check out, I love the quality of them, the packaging just literally everything about Charlotte's products are effortless and beautiful.

I will be doing more reviews over the next few days on some of Charlotte's other products, as I have invested in even more of her products including magic foundation (review coming soon) and one of her brand new palettes that is launching on 19th April as part of her brand new #BEAUTYFILTERS collection......You have no idea how truly excited I am about this next collection if only I could buy it all. 

So stay tuned for a lot more Tilbury reviews.

Have you tried Charlotte Tilbury products before?

Glow Getter.......

Move out the way Instagram filter hello real life enhancer. A new product release from Charlotte Tilbury is something I most certainly always look forward to. Tilbury announced her brand new Hollywood Flawless Filter range at the recent London Fashion Week last week & The moment I knew it was getting released on February the 22nd, I sat waiting patiently to hit the add to basket button. I purchased mine in the shade 1 & have been testing it out for the past few days and thought I would share today my thoughts on this very hyped product.

It is as Charlotte says herself it's a "Complexion booster for super starlit skin...". You can use this product either underneath foundation, on top of foundation for an extra glow, mixed in with your foundation or I have been simply using mine on it's own. This wonderful product comes in seven glorious shades and NO.1 was of course the perfect match for this caspar pale face. The bottle is of course everything you'd expect, Charlotte always creates the most extraordinary packaging with the rose gold bottle and her name embellished on the top of the bottle lid you know charlotte means business. 


The applicator is a really big doe-foot applicator which makes it so easy to apply a little bit of  this product goes such a long way, I like to use a tiny bit on top of my foundation and I apply it to all the high points of my face so above my cheek bones to my temples my forehead, down my nose and on my chin ever so slightly......I imagine this product would look amazing on your collarbone too. The texture of this product isn't watery or too think it's texture is the consistency of charlottes magic foundation. The product itself isn't glittery or shimmery it's just glowy and an instant glow. It has the most beautiful pearlescent glow to it. 

It makes your skin look so hydrated and youthful, I've already received a huge amount of compliments on how my skin looks since wearing this product. It's not a punchy heavy highlight it's really glowy and fresh faced looking as you can see from the photos above.

Overall thoughts -

It literally is gorgeously glowing skin in a dreamy rose gold bottle. If you are a matte all the way kind of girl then this product won't be for you however if you are a glow getter like myself and love nothing more then glowy, fresh, dewy skin then this product gets a huge thumbs up from me. It's not greasy at all if anything it's light and blends like a dream. It is very much a skin like finish, I can't wait to see what this will look like in the summer months.

Have you tried Charlotte's Hollywood Flawless Filter yet?

It’s been an extremely long time since I lasted updated this lil space on the internet, I’ve had a huge amount of things to deal with all of which have been shit to say the least and I wish I could honestly forget the past couple of months………I haven’t done anything on here since about October 2017 and I want that to hugely change starting from Today! My blog is somewhere, where I can just escape and I love nothing more than sharing my thoughts, reviews and just my general ramblings on here.

So from now on expect to see a fair few changes around here and some more of me.

All The Pumpkin

To say I love anything Pumpkin Spiced is an understatement, today I thought I’d share with you my two current favourite pumpkin themed/scented products to get you through this autumn, that and to give you all the warm and cosy feels....

What’s autumn without pumpkin scented bath and shower products? Well it isn’t….two products that I’m loving recently, not only look amazing but they feel amazing, First up The Body Shop have just released their pumpkin scented products and there Vanilla Pumpkin Shower Gel has now become my new favourite smell, note this is now my second bottle because I've used it that much already. It smells like a really sweet warm cinnamon bun, it just makes me feel so cosy and warm it foams up really nicely and just smells like autumn in a bottle……I’m most certainly going to get my hands on their body butter and glitter mist in this scent.

If there is one Lush product that just instantly brings a smile to my face it’s these little guys, Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar is probably one of my favourite all time Lush scents. I hope to god Lush never get rid of this! With a beautiful citrus blend of Lime Oil, Juniperberry Oil & Grapefruit Oil it leaves my skin feel so soft and smelling incredible. This is one of them limited edition bath products that I wish they would bring it out in a shower gel or a body lotion it’s SOOOO good.

Now go and head to your local Lush or The Body Shop and stock up on your favourite autumnal beauty products.

What are you loving recently?
