Let's Talk About Charlotte Tilbury

 I just think we need to have this conversation.. don't you? 
For me, Charlotte Tilbury came from seemingly no-where and suddenly turned into my most coveted beauty brand around the mid-point of last year. I thought maybe I'd get over this little love affair but, actually it only grew with time. Am I the only one?

If you follow me on instagram you may have already seen these products popping up round those ends, but my first purchase was this gorgeous Matte Revolution lipstick in the shade 'Love Liberty'. I'd originally planned on getting Glastonberry, but after a few trips to my local Selfridges where it was out of stock, I decided that I actually preferred this shade - marginally - and just loved wearing it over the Autumn/Winter period. Spring may be on the approach but this shade is staying on my lips for the forseeable.

I've also picked up the Luxury Palette in 'The Dolce Vita' but I'm sure you already recognised it from the photo am I right? This palette had been on my lust list for so many months but when I figured out that it's cheaper than buying 4 Mac eyeshadow I allowed myself to splurge a little bit just in time for the festive period and boy am I glad I did. I know that with a lot of products, there's so much hype around them, we'll go off and buy them and they won't live up to the hype but seriously, if you take one thing from this post, please let it be that this stuff is worth the dollar, in my makeup loving opinion anyway. The shadows are creamy, super pigmented, and that gorgeous red/brown at the top? you won't find it anywhere else, (and if you do, you're a lot better than me cause boy did I search!) 

I also picked up the 'Filmstar Bronze & Glow' which I can hands-down say has been the best purchase I've made. Ever. Is that a little dramatic? If you also had moonface problems like I do then you might not think so! I'd usually be a bit dubious about a 'one shade suits all' product, but I've read reviews from lots of different skin types and shades and somehow it just seems to work for everyone! I picked it up in the Selfridges sale just after Christmas.. it wasn't that much cheaper to be honest but every little helps! The contour shade is ashy and slightly grey toned so you won't look orange, and is really pigmented and easily buildable. Perfect. Now then, the highlight? It's like heaven in powder form. So beautifully shimmery and golden and can go from looking really natural to  'contoured goddess' within seconds. If you make one high end beauty purchase this January I really would advise considering this beauty!

I'm planning on doing a little 'New Year Haul' video on my youtube channel including all of my recent beauty & fashion purchases.. (there's too many. Sorry bank account) so if you're interested in seeing that that make sure you subscribe so you don't miss it! 

Have you picked up any beauty products in the sales?
I'm going shopping tomorrow (again) so any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!




  1. You've basically placed all my feelings about CT and written them in one post. I bought one of the Matte Revolution lipsticks (Sexy Sienna) in the Boxing Day sales and I'm so in love I'm almost scared to use it because I don't want it to run out :') xo

    1. Haha, I'm in LOVE with the lady!
      Yesss I know exactly what you mean! AND they smell good too right?!!!!!


  2. This palette is so gorgeous, every time I see it somewhere I fall a bit more in love. Even the packaging is amazing. When I have an income I might have to invest in some CT make up because it seems everyone LOVES it!

    1. Ahhh it's so beautiful isn't it! I'd been lusting after it for so long, and finally caved and I'm so glad I did!
      It is obviously high end so can be quite pricey! I would never have imagined myself spending this much on makeup if I'd have been told this about a year ago but it honestly is just SO FRIGGIN GOOD! worth the mooolah if you ask me haha!
