Charlotte Tilbury Super Nudes Collection Review | The Beauty Lookbook

Charlotte Tilbury launched her new Super Nudes Collection and as a neutral lip lover I’m thrilled for the new additions to her lineup! In today’s review:

Supernudes Face Palette

Charlotte Tilbury Nudegasm Face palette | The Beauty Lookbook

The Supernudes Face Palette has two shimmering highlighters and two satin matte contouring shades. The colors are very wearable and the shimmer isn’t too sharp which I like. For me this is a highlighting/contouring palette – I still prefer to add blush or some color for a complete look, but for this post I just applied the palette.

Colors include a sparkling champagne gold, a shimmery golden warm peach, a soft cool-toned light tan, and a deeper neutral-cool brown. On my medium tan skin the contour powders show up pretty well. Colors are pigmented on me but easy to blend.

Overall performance has been really good. Textures are soft and smooth, colors layer/mix well with other products, lasting power is really long on the skin.

Super Nudes Easy Eye Palette

Super Nudes Easy Eye Palette Review | The Beauty Lookbook

The Super Nudes Easy Eye Palette is a repromoted palette from Holiday 2020. I remember loving the colors but found the texture to be a little odd. The palette in the Super Nudes collection is identical to the original launch formula, pigment, color-wise. Texture is a soft matte but almost like a bouncy matte which has an almost creamy feel but with a powder texture. Performance-wise it’s great. I think the colors are easy to wear. I like that there is a warmer set and a neutral-cool set within one palette for the light, medium and deep tones. It’s a great smokey eye kind of neutral you can wear everyday. If you’re looking for a good staple with luminous mattes this is a great option to give you everything you would need for a complete eye look.

Super Nudes Duo Liner

Charlotte Tilbury Super Nudes Duo Liner review | The Beauty Lookbook

The Super Nudes Duo Liner has a creamy matte nude shade designed to enhance/brighten if you line the waterline with it. The other is a black brown matte which is creamy and long-wearing. I still prefer to line my waterline with a darker color. If you already own her Rock N Kohl in Barbarella Brown or Bedroom Black those are really similar to the deeper shade in the Super Nudes Liner Duo.

Super Nudes Lip Colors

Charlotte Tilbury Super Nudes Lipsticks Cover Star, Catwalking, Super Fabulous, Supermodel, Runway Royalty

You girls know I’m a fanatic about neutral nude lips even though the colors can be hit or miss. I was really surprised to find that all the new shades in this launch ended up working for me since finding wearable “nudes” can be tricky depending on skin and lip tone. There are four Matte Revolution Lipsticks and one K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick formula:

  • Cover Star is a pale apricot with neutral-cool tones
  • Catwalking a medium peach brown
  • Super Fabulous is a rosewood brown (has a brown 90’s vibe to me)
  • Supermodel is a muted rose neutral (darker than Pillow Talk)
  • Runway Royalty is a perfect neutral pink with a very slight hint of peach (this is exclusive to CharlotteTilbury.com)

If I had to pick a favorite it would be Runway Royalty. I also really like Catwalking for a peachy nude. Formula and wear for her lipsticks in this launch are true to her usual standards. Creamy, easy to blend and layer, smooth, buildable pigment/coverage, long wear.

Swatches alongside Pillow Talk and Pillow Talk Medium.

Charlotte Tilbury x Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives

Happy Friday! I have a look at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale x Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Exclusives and think there some great options this year. Nordstrom launched a new Instant Look Palette for the sale along with some good value sets to try out. I have a closer look with more swatches today.

Charlotte Tilbury x Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives

Collagen Lip Bath Set

Charlotte Tilbury Collagen Lip Bath Set

The Collagen Lip Bath formula is one of my all time favorites. The colors Refresh Rose and Pillow Talk have been staples in my routine for an effortless look. They give the lips a plump lush shine without the strong stinging or tingle sensation (huge plus for me). Pillow Talk is the one that gives me the most compliments and I’ve gifted it to pretty much every single friend and family member close to me. Formula is comfortable and hydrating. There is peppermint which gives it a slight cooling sensation but it’s a pleasant one.

Charlotte Tilbury Collagen Lip Bath Pillow Talk

This year’s Full Size Collagen Lip Bath Trio Set is on sale for $68 (full price is a $106 value). It includes:

Refresh Rose – sheer soft clear light pink

Sunset Dreamscape Instant Look in a Palette Set

Charlotte Tilbury Sunset Dreamscape Instant Look in a Palette Set

The Face and Eye Palette Set includes one of her Instant Look Palettes called Sunset Dreamscape. It also includes a mini mascara. The palette has a good mix of everyday wearbale rose tones. On my medium skin tone it gives me a neutral rose bronze shade without being too pink or rosy.

Eyeshadows include a soft champagne, warm peachy copper shimmer, matte plum. For the face there is a nice soft light tan matte bronzer (neutral tones), two blushes in warm rose tones and a pale sheer highlighter.

Overall pigment level is medium but buildable. Lasting power is excellent for wear time and I love the colors!

Skin Care

Charlotte Tilbury Setting Spray and Magic Cream minis

A couple other mentions I wanted to include are some of her skincare items. There are two value sets including the Setting Spray and Magic Cream Set ($75 on sale, $113 value) and also the Magic Cream Set ($160 on sale, $240 value). I’m a huge fan of her Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray and Magic Cream so I think if you’re looking to try her skincare these are some nice sets available with some good price savings.

You can find these items available at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in store and online at Nordstrom. Sale runs through August 8th. Don’t forget to check out the Gift With Purchase section online as well. They have new ones that rotate every week!

Charlotte Tilbury Look of Love Collection Haul Picks

May 22, 2021

Charlotte Tilbury Look of Love Collection

Charlotte Tilbury launched two new Instant Look Palettes in her Look of Love Collection. I ordered both sight unseen along with a few of the lip products. Swatches and a closer look today! Available at Charlotte Tilbury, Sephora, Nordstrom and all other Charlotte Tilbury retailers.

Instant Look in a Palettes

Her Instant Look of Love in a Palettes comes in two shade variations. They each have 3 eyeshadows, 1 matte bronzer, 1 blush, 1 highlighter and 1 Airbrush face powder. In terms of pigment and color payoff these are among the better ones (I found some of her previous one too sheer.)

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette Pretty Blushed Beauty

Pretty Blushed Beauty is the lighter option with neutral tones for the eyeshadows in a pale champagne glitter topper, medium shimmery taupe grey and soft matte brown. The sparkle shade is best applied in a pressing motion (I like to tap on the eyes as a finisher with my fingers). The medium shimmer shade has super smooth pigment. The matte brown is a really pretty wearable staple color I like to use as a softer contour.

Cheek colors in this palette include a soft matte tan which is on the light-medium side but still shows up deeper than my natural skin tone so I’d call it a soft bronze for me. The highlighter is a pale shimmery champagne with smooth shimmer. Blush is a soft peach on me and the powder matches my skin exactly.

Wearing below:

_____________

Glowing Beauty has deeper tones with a soft peach champagne shimmer, sparkling copper + silver mix of a glitter shade, medium matte plum brown for the eyes. For cheeks it has a deeper matte neutral cool brown for the bronzer, a shimmery peachy color for the highlighter, a deeper warm rose with a hint of shimmer for the blush. The powder is lighter in color than my skin tone but it melts into the skin and I can make it work. Overall cheek tones for this one is deeper and more bronzy, slightly too deep for my medium tan skin but I can make it work.

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in Glowing Beauty

Below Glowing Beauty palette and Wedding Belles Lipstick

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in Glowing Beauty

I think the palettes are lovely and easy to wear for a natural glowing look. However as with most palettes I don’t recommend getting them unless you think you will use most of the shades. I do think the selection for the powder shades were an odd choice since there are so many different skin tones and the two featured in these palettes seem limited.

Lip Colors

Charlotte Tilbury Look of Love Lipstick Nude Romance and Wedding Belles

I have four items from this collection swatched for the lips. I think some of these have been launched in the past so if you own a lot of Charlotte Tilbury lip products you may want to shop your stash. The K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Nude Romance is a medium peachy brown nude (also swatched here). This one has full coverage, is super creamy and has pretty good lasting power. The Matte Revolution in Wedding Belles (I think another repromote) which is a matte rose pink. I find it to be similar to Pillow Talk on my lips with the Wedding Belles to be a bit more cool-toned. It’s a really lovely everyday kind of rose pink.

Charlotte Tilbury Tinted Love

I tried two of the Tinted Love Lip stains in Santa Euphoria and Blushed Rose. I have mixed feelings about these. The colors are lovely when swatched on the hand. They look semi-sheer but can be layered on the lips. On my lips they darkened significantly into a deeper rosy stain that looked nothing like they do swatched straight out of the tube. Color and finish is like that natural just-bitten kind of effect but then my lips looked like they started to look dried out. I could probably top with a clear gloss or balm to help add a bit of moisture. Product itself is not bad, just not quite what I expected but then I am usually not a fan of liquid stains for lips because they almost always darken on me.

Swatches + a few comparisons:

Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick swatches

Setting Spray

Charlotte Tilbury Setting Spray

Last a quick mention includes a look at the Airbrush Flawless Scented Setting Spray in White Tea of Bali. It has a really soft pleasant white tea scent. This has a dispenser that sprays a super fine mist and softens the look of powder on the skin. This one comes in the full 100 ml size for $35. You can find the Original Setting Spray unscented option in the 100 ml option for $35 and a Travel Size 34 ml option for $20. It has a similar effect to the Urban Decay All Nighter or the MAC Fix+ for making makeup last. (If you’re shopping for multiple items, I recommend shopping direct through Charlotte Tilbury’s website because she does have bundles with a price break/savings on some things.)

You can find the Look of Love Collection out now at available at Charlotte Tilbury, Sephora, Nordstrom and all other Charlotte Tilbury retailers.

New Charlotte Tilbury Fire Rose Eyeshadow Quad + Nude Lipsticks Review

November 13, 2020

New Charlotte Tilbury Fire Rose, Copper Sunrise, Rose Sunset and Nude Lipsticks

I’m back with another Charlotte Tilbury haul! She launched more products for the eyes with a new quad and two cream eyeshadows. Also I received so many requests to review the Super Lipsticks so I caved and ordered them to swatch and compare for you today. I ordered everything from Charlotte Tilbury online. Right now it looks like these items are exclusive to her website and I don’t know if she will launch them at other stores or counters.

I wasn’t able to shoot the eye looks as my camera died and I need to replace it. If you are interested in more eye looks let me know in the comments and I’ll try and update this post if you want more looks/photos. It’s been a terrible week with the tropical storm and some tech issues here!

In today’s post:

Luxury Eye Palette in Fire Rose

Charlotte Tilbury Fire Rose Eyeshadow Palette Review

Charlotte Tilbury’s new Luxury Eye Palette in Fire Rose is one of the prettiest ones I’ve seen this year. I like this one because it has only one reddish/plum shade and even though it’s warm, the rest of the palette pulls more neutral on my complexion. The colors are smooth and ultra pigmented. I think this is a winner for me!

Colors include a shimmery metallic pink, shimmery medium taupe plum brown, sparkling glitter champagne top coat and a matte plum-red-brown.

New Shades of Eyes to Mesmerise

Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise Copper Sunrise and Sunset Rose

I’m a huge fan of Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise cream shadows so I knew I had to have both of the new ones. Copper Sunrise is a shimmery warm soft coppery pink that isn’t too warm on my skin. Sunset Rose is a soft plum pink. Both smooth out to a medium luminous sheen. If blended the colors will sheer out more for a wash of color. I like to use these as bases for cream shadows or on lazy makeup days. You can layer for more color but in general they aren’t going to be super pigmented on the lids. On me they last well but I have dry lids so I don’t have oily lid issues.

Swatch comparisons next to a few other shades.

Super Lipsticks

Charlotte Tilbury Super Nude, Super You, Super Starlet lipsticks

Charlotte Tilbury launched three new lipsticks in a limited-edition packaging. The only thing different is the lid which has tiny jewels on the top. All three performed well true to her lipstick standards. I love her mattes because they’re not a flat matte. These have medium to full coverage and have impressive lasting power on me. I think her new colors are really flattering – I hope she considers adding them to her permanent lineup.

I swatched them below next to a few other neutrals. There are similarities to other colors but slight differences in the undertone.

Charlotte Tilbury Neutral Lipstick swatches

All three on the face as I was able to swatch them on my lips with a different camera. I hope to get my replacement today! My foundation shade in Charlotte Tilbury is the Magic Foundation in Shade 7.

Charlotte Tilbury Super Nude, Super You, Super Starlet lipsticks

I think everything I hauled is a solid win. I really love the eyeshadow palette even though she seems to be launching so many. I love her Cream Shadows although I know many of you don’t like her formula – if you have oily lids they might not last long on your skin type. Her new shades of lipsticks are as good as many of you have said they were, however I do think they are dupeable.

If you’re shopping around for her new launches I do recommend checking her website as she usually has bundles available with a price break. Right now until the 15th she has a Gift With Purchase going on for a free Magic Cream Light (which I received with my order).

Did you try anything from this launch yet? Or are you waiting to see what she has coming out before the end of the year?

Charlotte Tilbury Holiday 2020 Makeup Haul

November 10, 2020

Charlotte Tilbury Holiday 2020 Collection

I have a Charlotte Tilbury holiday haul review today! I ordered almost everything from the holiday launch so far and have swatches, beauty looks and thoughts today. I ordered most of my items from Charlotte Tilbury and a few things from Nordstrom. In today’s haul post:

Bejewelled Eyes to Hypnotise Palette

Charlotte Tilbury Bejewelled Eyes to Hypnotize Eyeshadow Palette

Charlotte Tilbury Bejewelled Eyes to Hypnotize Eyeshadow Palette swatches

I fell in love with the look of the Bejewelled Eyes to Hypnotise Palette while shopping in store at Nordstrom. The store lights made the palette glow and sparkle in the most beautiful way! It has four sets of coordinating eye trios. Each set is designed for a certain look for prime, enhance and smoke placement.

I think this is a beautiful palette for a glam look. You can mix or match the shades but I do think you will need colors from other palettes to give you a complete look. On me there weren’t enough deep shades to add depth or dimension, although you can always just add a liner for a completed look.

  • Happy Glow has golden tan tones
  • Love Glow has pink and red tones (I’m not a fan of these by themself, they’re much to red for my taste, but I can make them work on me when layered with other colors)
  • Dream Glow has pretty plum and mauve tones
  • Seduce Glow has pretty neutral bronze brown tones

Eye Looks below featuring Seduce Glow Look (bronze) and also Dream Glow Look (plum)

Also wearing:

Colors are smooth and easy to layer. Lasting power is very good on all colors and the shimmers aren’t too glittery or glitzy if you’re like me and prefer a more subtle sparkle.

The Super Nudes Easy Eye Palette

Charlotte Tilbury The Super Nudes Easy Eye Palette | The Beauty Look Book

I had such high hopes for The Super Nudes Easy Eye Palette and have mixed feelings about this one. I really loved the Easy Smokey Eye x Nordstrom palette from a couple years ago. This new Super Nudes Palette has a completely different texture. There are 6 mattes but they are almost creamy velvety like mattes that have an odd texture to me. They apply smoothly on the lids although you have to use a dense brush and almost pat/blend/pack it on. I found the MAC 239S worked best for me.

Charlotte Tilbury The Super Nudes Easy Eye Palette swatches | The Beauty Look Book

Colors are:

  • Soft warm tan
  • Medium tan brown
  • Warm deep brown
  • Matte ivory
  • Matte soft grey
  • Matte smokey black

The texture is almost like some of the Natasha Denona mattes which are more of a bouncy matte, however I find the ones from Natasha Denona perform much better.

I have mixed feelings about this new Super Nudes palette. I love the shades and think it creates a nice soft smokey eye look. I just don’t love the formula – it’s not bad, but I think it would have been SO much better if they made it a regular matte. I think the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam or Soft Glam II Mini will give you a similar look with a much better texture.

Charlotte Tilbury The Super Nudes Easy Eye Palette Makeup look | The Beauty Look Book

Luxury Palette of Pops in Dazzling Diamonds

The Luxury Palette of Pops in Dazzling Diamonds has four sparkling colors in a sparkling white gold champagne, sparkling soft gold brown, sparkling deeper bronze and sparkling blue-black-grey.

The glitters are beautiful in this one! I think they’re stunning for holiday for a super pretty look although I had trouble getting a good makeup look with this one. I know this one is designed to be a glitzy one with lots of sparkle to make the eyes pop. On my eyes all four were a bit too much for me. The glitter does adhere to the eyes and has minimal fall out if you use a patting method to apply. For me I think this is going to be better when used in conjunction with other matte or satin shades. I am going to keep trying with this one to get a decent makeup look for you in another post.

If you want to see the Pillow Talk Luxury Palette of Pops on my eyes (similar texture/glitter, just in pink tones) you can see my review here.

Jewel Lip Gloss

I am 100% smitten with the Jewel Lip Gloss. These are shimmery glosses loaded with sparkle but the ones I’ve tried are completely smooth and texture free. These have a subtle vanilla scent similar to the MAC Lipglasses. There are three new colors with the holiday collection, I also included two from a previous launch to swatch below. (If you shop on Charlotte Tilbury’s site she has some bundles available with a bit of price break for buying the sets.)

  • Champagne Diamonds is a sheer sparkling gold beige
  • Opal Magic is a sheer pale pink gold
  • Blushed Gold is a pretty neutral pink beige sparkle
  • Pillow Talk is a pink rose glow with a soft sheen
  • Walk of No Shame is a shimmery deeper rosy color

Charlotte Tilbury Jewel Lips Opal Magic and Blushed Gold

These work alone, with a liner or on top of a gloss. I think these give the lips the prettiest and most flattering glow I’ve seen in a long time. I highly recommend checking them out! There is one more shade called ROSE JEWEL exclusive to Sephora. The reviews sound pretty bad for this shade but if you’ve tried it and think otherwise let me know in the comments!

Hollywood Superstar Glow Highlighter

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Superstar Glow Highlighter review | The Beauty Look Book

I’m ending with the product I think is the star of the collection. The Hollywood Superstar Glow Highlighter is one of the prettiest opal glow I’ve seen in a long time. It looks pretty standard when swatched on the arms or compared to other shades but I think it looks so flattering on the skin. If you’re medium tan like me this will look like your skin but more glowing. It flashes peach, pink, pale pink, and opal all in one without looking too frosted. If you have lighter fair skin this will look more peachy on you.

Closer look at different angles shows the complexity of the glow/color:

Charlotte Tilbury Holiday 2020 Collection

That wraps up my haul post! For me the standouts are her Hollywood Superglow Highlighter (wish this was permanent!) and her Jewel Lips Lip Glosses. I think her palettes are nice, but not must-haves especially if you already own a lot of other shades from her line.

She  just launched her Fire Rose Luxury Palette and two new Eyes to Mesmerise Eyeshadows which I ordered and will also have those reviewed hopefully very soon.

Best of Charlotte Tilbury Makeup | The Beauty Look Book

Charlotte Tilbury has been one of my favorite beauty brands for years and I’m excited to partner with them to share a look at my top picks for an effortless everyday polished look. So many of the products in her line have become tried and true staples for me. I think she’s created a great range of flattering colors for a natural or glam look.

Magic Cream

The Magic Cream is one of their best sellers and I can see why! It’s a great versatile everyday kind of moisturizer to balance and hydrate my skin. I like that it helps noticeably smooth, plump skin and hydrate the face without feeling too heavy or thick – I use it as a foundation primer too. I’ve repurchased multiple jars over the years. It has hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C + E to give you a nice glow.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream | The Beauty Look Book

Base Makeup

For foundation my favorite formula from her line is the Magic Foundation for a demi-matte, long-lasting, buildable coverage formula that creates a flawless, perfect-looking finish. It blends in nicely with the skin and evens out everything without feeling heavy. She recently expanded the shade range and my perfect match is 6.75 (neutral undertone). I’ll often add a little of her Hollywood Flawless Filter in Shade 4 to highlight and add a natural glow.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation 6.75

Long-time readers know the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder in Medium 2 is my holy grail pressed powder. It has a smoothing effect with natural coverage to set foundation and blur fine lines. It truly does give the face a subtle airbrush kind of look and I cannot live without it. It’s so popular that they now sell one every minute! They recently expanded the shade options to include Tan and Deep.

Lip Favorites

I’ve been obsessed with all of the Charlotte Tilbury lip products for as long as I can remember. The Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk is my go-to everyday pink rose color that goes with everything. For her traditional creamy lipstick in the K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick formula Bitch Perfect (pretty soft nude pink) and Stoned Rose (warmer rose) are my most-worn shades. For a neutral peachy pink, the Hot Lips 2 In Love With Olivia is another favorite. And of course her classic Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk is a great everyday pink rose color I think everyone should own.

Charlotte Tilbury Eyeshadow Palette Bella Sofia

The Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palettes are some of the best ones out there for a glam look. She has a wide range of colors to choose from with different finishes and textures. If I could only use one palette the rest of my life it would be The Bella Sofia. It has the perfect mix for a warm copper bronze smokey eye. You can wear it for an easy everyday look or intensify the deeper colors to dress it up a little more.

New Charlotte Tilbury: Airbrush Bronzer, Air-Brush and Desert Haze Quad

May 28, 2020

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer, Air-Brush + Desert Haze | The Beauty Look Book

I’m back with a new Charlotte Tilbury haul post featuring the new Bronzer, Retractable Brush and Eyeshadow Quad. I ordered everything online from Charlotte Tilbury as they had an early product launch. The products are now starting to appear on other retail sites like Nordstrom, Sephora and Beautylish. I also have a swatch lineup of a couple other products by popular request as some colors have now appeared at Sephora, Nordstrom, etc.

________

Airbrush Bronzer

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer in Fair and Medium | The Beauty Look Book

There are four shades of Airbrush Bronzer in Fair, Medium, Tan and Deep. These are large refillable matte bronzing powders (pans are magnetic and there’s a hole on the bottom to pop out the pan). Online they have shade recommendations based on your Charlotte Tilbury foundation match. I am a match to the Airbrush Foundation in 7N and 7.5N (when I’m not as tan, reviewed here) so the best bronzer shade for me according to Charlotte Tilbury is Medium. I also ordered Fair out of curiosity also because often times “fair” isn’t always truly light in color, but rather just a light tan.

Formula-wise these are easy to blend and very smooth. There’s no patchy texture and it is easy to layer for a truly natural blurred bronzed look or soft contour. Lasting power is good – it stayed put without oxidizing or looking muddy.

Fair 1 Airbrush Bronzer

The Fair 1 Airbrush Bronzer is a close match to the Medium 2 Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder. On my skin the Fair Bronzer looks like powder. I was hoping because of the size that it would be a good alternate for the Pressed Powder since I hit pan frequently on the setting powder (it’s one of my holy grails!). I tried it as both a bronzer and setting powder since the ingredient lineup is pretty similar. The formulas are very similar in the fact that they blend well. The pressed powder is a little heavier in coverage on my skin while the bronzer seems a tad bit more lightweight. Color-wise the Fair 1 Airbrush Bronzer has a bit more cool tones with more olive so on my skin it looks a little more olive/greenish when applied all over the face. It works as a setting powder, but I prefer the regular pressed powder for all over.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Powder vs Bronzer

Wearing below:

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer Fair 1 | The Beauty Look Book

 

Medium 2 Airbrush Bronzer

The Medium 2 Airbrush Bronzer is a truly natural looking soft matte bronze. Normally I think I might be able to go one shade darker but there seems to be a huge jump in between colors so the next shade up will most likely be too dark for me.

Air-Brush Retractable Bronzing Brush

Charlotte Tilbury Air-Brush Retractable Bronzing Brush Review

The Air-Brush Retractable Bronzing Brush is a super soft plush white fluffy brush for the bronzer. It’s well made and I think it’s perfect for packing in your makeup bag since it has a cap. I do worry it might be a bit tricky to wash but I really like it and think it’s worth the splurge.

________

Desert Haze Luxury Palette Matte Eyeshadow Quad

Charlotte Tilbury Eyeshadow Quad in Desert Haze

The Desert Haze Luxury Palette Matte Eyeshadow Quad is yet another warm eyeshadow palette from Charlotte Tilbury. It has all matte shades with a beige cream, matte orange brown, deeper warm matte brown and terracotta. Pigment on this one is amazing and when applying it from light to dark I thought it was for sure going to be too orangey. The deepest shade however pulls it all together for a more complete warm smokey sunset eye look and I really like it! Pigment is really smooth and easy to blend with a rich finish.

If you can’t do warms but want a good matte neutral palette I think Tom Ford Mink Mirage is the best one available right now.

The Collagen Lip Bath is one of my favorite lip plumpers that doesn’t have an intense tingle. I wanted to swatch all of them side by side for you since all the colors are now available at Sephora and Nordstrom! (Pillow Talk was previously exclusive to Charlotte Tilbury.) Also added a couple other neutrals from the Lip Lustre formula lineup which I also love.

Beauty Light Wands

Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand Swatches | The Beauty Look Book

Last but not least is another look at the Beauty Light Wands as the two Pillow Talk Light and Pillow Talk Medium colors have finally arrived at Sephora. I don’t think I’ve done makeup looks with all of them on the blog, but you can see Spotlight on the face here. Pinkgasm on the face here.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer, Air-Brush + Desert Haze | The Beauty Look Book

That wraps up my Charlotte Tilbury bronzer haul! Hope you found this helpful. I really like the things I ordered. The bronzing powders are smooth and easy to blend for a natural look. I don’t know that Fair will show up as a bronzer even on truly light/fair skin tones as it looks pretty light to me. If you are fair and tried it let me know what it looks like on you! Medium works for a natural bronzer on me right now. As the summer progresses I know I will get more color from the sun so I’m not sure if it will still show up in a month’s time. As much as I don’t like warm or matte eyeshadows I was surprised to find I really love the look and finish of Desert Haze quad. It’s one I think I’ll reach for a lot this summer!

You can find all of the new beauty launches now online at Charlotte Tilbury. Some retailers like Nordstrom, Sephora and Beautylish have the bronzers. I haven’t seen the quad pop up anywhere else yet but I suspect it will launch at other retailers eventually.
