Oh my gosh I can’t believe I’m saying it: My first Charlotte Tilbury Makeup Haul! As a little treat from me to me for all my hard work on my dissertation I decided to finally purchase some of her iconic products, its been a long time coming.
After seeking endless reviews and opinions from people I decided to pick up a Lipstick, Mascara and Eyeshadow. I’ve been in awe since these arrived I mean just look how stunning they are? Packaged perfectly all wrapped up in a CT box.. I’ve totally kept it.
So why did it take me so long to splurge on Charlotte Tilbury?
Well I’m not gonna lie I’ve always lusted over her products but I wasn’t sure what to get and if they were worth the price tag. I don’t have a counter near me which made the decision harder online picking the right shades but I’m so pleased in what I bought. Here’s the low down on what I think of these three beauties.
So with it being summer soon I wanted to buy a lipstick that I could get away with wearing now but also in the next coming months so it had to be a pink right? Well after doing some digging I realised that I loved the Golden Goddess look. If you’re not sure what that is see the overview below:
“With tousled hair, glowing skin and shining eyes, the golden goddess has perfected beachy beauty. She’s worshipped for her sultry style from the beaches of Ibiza to terraces of St Tropez.”
Golden goddess is all about looking flawless with peachy pink tones and shimmer. Well as a fan of looking bronzed and jetting to Ibiza for the third time, I felt the Matte Revolution in Sexy Sienna was the perfect shade to take away with me. I mean just look at it!
I’ve worn this a few times now especially for the Bridges event (here) and I actually love the impact it has on my face, it gives the appearance of fuller lips! Seriously. I always opt for matte over shiny nowadays so I knew this would be a winner for me, I liked pairing it with a nude or light pink liner.
Matte revolution feels hydrating a lot more so than most matte lipsticks which I like, it’s very similar to Mac that way and the more you apply this lipstick the more pink toned it looks. A beautiful mix of peach and pink and I couldn’t have picked a better shade if I tried!
So Sexy Sienna is obviously inspired by Sienna Miller, a golden coral to partner with sun-kissed skin.
To keep with this golden goddess look I just had to pick up one of their bronzed eye creams. I originally was going to go for Jean but after asking for recommendations a blogger told me I needed Marie Antoinette.
Eyes to Mesmerize does exactly what it says! I’ve never seen such a stunning highly pigmented cream in all my life, honestly the swatch doesn’t do it the justice it deserves. This eye shadow is packaged in a great luxe glass jar so its protected unlike some packaging.
This clever eye shadow is a cream that turns to a sheen, the formula makes it so easy to apply for anyone and it dries pretty quick. It looks subtle on its own or paired with your favourite powders, you only need to use your fingers.
Like its name, Marie Antoinette is an antique oyster gold so it is the perfect shimmer of golden with speckles of brown and ivory. After using this I’m really tempted to try another shade.
And finally I had to try their showstopping mascara didn’t I? I’ve heard so many good things about this and I was needed a new one to the collection.
Full Fat Lashes aimed to be the mascara you’ve been searching for, it does it all and this luxury 5 star product has my approval. With any mascara some work well on certain things but it’s so rare to find a product that separates, curls, lengthens, volumes and adds that drama. Well I’ve only used this once so far but I am fairly impressed.
I love the look of the brush, it’s not too big but it’s just the right size to get into the inner corners and the bristles certainly curl the lashes. You don’t have to keep pumping it for more product either, one use goes a long way so I can see this lasting a while before it dries up.
Above I’m wearing Sexy Sienna and Full Fat Lashes – I’m so happy with my CT haul, I can feel an addiction starting. Even though Charlotte Tilbury is quite expensive, its such a luxurious brand and after trying a selected few products, you can see why everyone is obsessed with her makeup collection. Best haul I’ve bought in a while!
I’m in Newcastle in a couple of weeks so can finally visit a Charlotte Tilbury counter so let me know what you recommend me to try next! I’m thinking her foundation and another lipstick?
Have you tried these products?
