Myself and the artists of Factor Artists had the amazing opportunity to test with Charlotte Tilbury's makeup line before it launches in the US this fall. I wanted to share with you what we were able to play with. I am absolutely INLOVE with this line.
First off, Charlotte Tilbury is an amazing artist, absolutely amazing.
Ms. Tilbury is the makeup artist for the Tom Ford Beauty ads and has worked with top notch photographers, A-list models, clients and celebrities for 20+ years.
One of Charlotte's top assistants, Konstantine, showed us the products first hand. He was so sweet and patient, and he genuinely loves the products. The first product we tried was "Charlotte's Magic Cream". I would compare the texture of the magic cream similar to LaMer or Embryolisse. Charlotte created her own creams and moisturizers for years before launching her line, this particular cream she has used backstage at numerous shows for fashion week. "Magic cream" is very light weight, contains SPF 15, very moisturizing and creates a soft glow to the face. This is so great as a primer, sinks into skin like butter and makes your foundation glow.
The second product we tried was the "Multi-Miracle Glow", made in Switzerland; this gel cream is literally do die for. This is 3 products all in one formula, it can be used as a cleanser, a regenerating night time mask, and/or a body butter to apply before or after your shower. I applied it on my arm and it created a ridiculous glow on my skin without feeling sticky or leaving a strong odor. The fragrance is soft, like gardenias. This "miracle glow" is especially great for photo shoots, it feels silky smooth to the touch, almost slippery, and photographs so well. Stays on skin for hours. I was truly sold on this one!
We were also able to play with foundations, concealers, lipsticks, lip glosses, lip liners and eye pencils. The "Rock N Kohl" liquid eye pencils are so velvety soft, you have to move slowly and carefully to apply it so you won't waste too much product.
These were my top 3 favorite products that stood out to me most and I for sure will purchase them when it launches in the US. Everything else in the Charlotte Tilbury collection reminded me of duplicate products I have worked with, but I can say the whole line has beautiful, rich textures and outstanding quality from the skin care to the color palettes in the eyeshadows.
I highly recommend makeup artists and the everyday woman to try it for yourself; the brand is a little pricey but so worth it.
