When I'm not on a tight budget for the month and fancy treating myself to a luxurious beauty product or two, the brand that instantly springs to mind is Charlotte Tilbury. It's not often that I discover a brand and genuinely want to own every single product in existence (the eyeshadow quads are next on my radar), but CT just ticks every box for me. Not only is each product beautifully packaged in rose gold outerwear, but they also hold the quality that I feel every luxury brand should. One of the things that won me over the most and something that I find completely unique to other high end brands is the fact that you can shop by look as well as choosing the products that are right for you before splashing the cash. Whether it's skin tone, eye colour or hair colour, she has created a range of products that are suited to everyone and recommends exactly who each product would best suit, making the whole online buying process an absolute breeze. Down below is a list of the CT products that I would like to introduce to anyone who hasn't tried them before.
LIP CHEAT IN PILLOWTALK: I most definitely got sucked into the hype of this product and purchased it straight away after hearing such amazing things. Pillowtalk is one of CT's most infamous 'barely there' shades, perfect for an every day effortless makeup look. I never thought I'd see the day that I'd discover a lip liner that would even compete against ones from the likes of Mac, but these ones are just so dreamy on the lips. Granted, the colour pay off isn't as bold as ones that I've tried before, but the smooth, creamy formula and long-lasting texture completely makes up for it.
LIP CHEAT IN FOXY BROWN: I purchased this along with the lipstick in Very Victoria as a duo in one of the lip slick sets. I would recommend going for one of these sets if you're after the perfect combo but are unsure on which colours match up together, especially if you're shopping online. This is a really lovely velvety suede tone that accentuates the shape of the lips when worn in conjunction with nude/brown lipstick. Again, the formula is super buttery and glides on the lips with ease. A brown liner is a staple in my makeup bag, especially in the A/W.
EYES TO MESMERIZE IN JEAN: This wasn't only my first CT eye purchase, but it was also the first ever cream eyeshadow to enter my beauty stash. Can you believe it? If I'm honest, I've always been a little skeptical on shadows with a creamy formula as I just assumed they wouldn't be as long-lasting as powders, but after trying this one, I think I may have been converted. Jean is a beautiful sparkling pink champagne shade inspired by the iconic Marylin Monroe. It glides on the lids with ease and can be used to create some amazing eye looks. This is one of those versatile products that you can just dab on the lids for a slight pop of shimmer, but can also be buildable with a few more layers. I like to keep this aside for special occasions as it just screams luxury to me.
MATTE REVOLUTION LIPSTICK IN VERY VICTORIA: Charlotte Tilbury's lipsticks are the products to blame for me wanting to try everything in her collection. Unlike a lot of matte lipsticks, these ones have an extremely buttery formula and are soft and comfortable on the lips. They provide great colour pay off and a texture that feels hydrating too. Very Victoria is a browny-nude shade inspired by Victoria Beckham, and it's definitely up there as one of my favourite nudes. It's a wonderfully subtle shade that can be built up and paired with a liner to create a more dramatic look.
HOT LIPS LIPSTICK IN SECRET SALMA: I remember this line of products being a complete sell-out when they were first released, and I can see why. I don't think I've ever owned a lipstick more aesthetically pleasing than this one - it's almost too pretty to use. Secret Salma is a natural deep rose-plum shade and if I'm honest, one that I wouldn't usually go for as it's a little more vibrant than my usual choices, but I absolutely adore it. If you're a lover of Mac's 'Mehr', then you'll love this. Again, it has the same formula as the matte revolution shades and lasts all day too.
