Charlotte Tilbury Beauty – Preview of The Beauty Look Book Picks

September 3, 2014

Beauty fans will be thrilled to know that Charlotte Tilbury’s beauty line has finally launched in the US. The range has launched online first at, Nordstrom, Bergdorf Goodman, Net-A-Porter and BeautyLish starting September 2nd. Later this fall, the line will launch in select stores starting October 7th at Bergdorf Goodman in NYC and October 10th at Nordstrom at The Grove in Los Angeles. Launch events will also be hosted with Nordstrom in other cities including Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Orange County, Washington D.C. and Las Vegas through Spring 2015.

I fell head over heels in love with the Filmstar Killer Cheekbones Set which was available at Nordstrom during the Anniversary Sale. I couldn’t wait for the line to launch in the US so I decided order a few of her look sets from the UK site along with some other items. I’ll have detailed reviews on all the items, but many of you have asked for a preview post wanting to know what I ordered and whether I thought the sets were worth it (versus buying items individually).

I did quite a bit of research when trying to decide what to buy. Some of the lipsticks and lip glosses looked extremely brown in stock photos so I relied heavily on blog swatches to help me pick out colors. I went with two of the sets simply because I found it easier to purchase an entire look rather than mix and match items. There are definitely duplicates in some of the sets with items such as mascara, makeup bag and some liners. (I gifted my extra makeup bag and mascara to another beauty friend.)

I ordered my items from the UK site and Paypal converted Pounds to Dollars. I think the prices I paid were slightly higher in the UK versus US prices, current US retail prices listed below. (Note all items are available individually as well).

The Rock Chick Set ($225) includes:


The Uptown Girl Set ($225) includes:


Wonderglow Instant Soft-Focus Beauty Flash ($52)
Beach Sticks Bronze and Blush in Ibiza and Moonbeach (not yet available in the US)

There is a lot to digest with her line – it all looks so overwhelmingly good. I’ll have reviews posted in the next week by category: face, eyes and lips with thoughts and swatches. I’m still happy I ordered the sets although you don’t really save all that much buying a set versus individual items. I normally like to pick out items individually rather than stick to one preset look, but the color combinations are really good and easy to use for ideas. Even though I look nothing like the model used for each look, I found the looks helpful to see how soft or dramatic items would look on another face.

I’ve had really good experiences so far. I’m relieved since I spent a small fortune and bought everything sight unseen. More thoughts soon.

  • Hi Sabrina,

    I can't wait to hear your thoughts! (Especially on the lipsticks — which look promising, albeit a bit brown toned). While I don't have immediate plans to jump just yet, I did like the promo photos for Rock Chick set πŸ™‚

    I am going to a Beautylish sponsored Charlotte Tilbury makeup preview and master class tomorrow night. I can't wait! I should get to see all the products so I'll be better able to decide what to purchase. Last week, I think for only a few hours and before I was invited to the Beautylish event, Nordstrom had the line online for pre-orders. I ordered a few things I have been curious about so hopefully they will pan out. I look forward to reading more about your experience with the products and your impressions. Everything you bought looks irrestible!

      Hi Jo,

      Do you mind sharing how do you sign up for this master class? or is this a VIP event? Thanks in advance!

    • Jo

      Hi, I recommend you send an email to or call Beautylish to see if they are able to send you an invitation.

  • You will enjoy Love Glow and Audrey — at least I've used up one Audrey pencil already πŸ™‚ I wish there are more swatches/comparison swatch for the foundation & retoucher available, really surprised of the dearth of this info. I'm sure you will do this when you go to the launch in LA, right?

    I can barely wait! Hope you can post soon πŸ™‚ I went ahead and ordered Bitch Perfect & the Dolce Vita quad yesterday from Beautylish. Everything is tempting me though.

  • Anahita

    I ordered the golden goddess, rebel chic and vintage vamp from Nordstrom. From Bergdorf Goodman I ordered the wonder glow flash primer and the magic cream. I can't wait to play with them. I'm contemplating additional purchases at BG to coincide with their gift card event at the end of the month. I can't wait until the beach sticks and film stars on the go are going to be released here. BG said both items should be available before the end of the year.

  • OMG looks sooo gorgeoous! im still wondering what to buy!.. i will wait your review! πŸ˜‰
