Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Glow Glide Highlighters

Charlotte Tilbury launched new powder highlighters called the Hollywood Glow Glide Face Architect Highlighters ($48 each). There are seven shades total – six shades are available at most retailers like Nordstrom, Sephora, Bloomingdale’s, Revolve etc. and one of them looks like it is exclusive to Charlotte Tilbury (Sunset Glow).

I picked up six of the Glow Glide Highlighters to swatch and test. These are powder highlighters that have a very smooth application. Shimmer is finely milled and glowy with medium to rich pigment. I’d say finish is on the more glowy side but it’s easy to blend/sheer out for a more subtle highlight.

At this point I think I have enough highlighters to last several lifetimes, but I think these are really beautiful. I like that there are tones to suit fair, medium, medium tan and deeper skin tones. I don’t know that I’d call any of these must-haves, to me these have a very similar vibe to the current Dior Forever Couture Luminizer Powders but with slight differences in color and undertone.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Glow Glide Highlighters

Colors include:

  • Moonlit Glow is a pale ivory highlighter on my skin, it has the sharpest contrast on my skin
  • Champagne Glow is a champagne highlighter, also very pale but a bit deeper
  • Pillow Talk Glow is a light pearly pink glow
  • Gilded Glow is a pretty gold shimmer
  • Bronze Glow is a neutral golden bronze, definitely looks bronzey on my skin, I think it makes a great eyeshadow color
  • Rose Gold Glow is the closest highlighter I’ve seen to match rose gold, pulls warm on my skin, almost orangey but I think this would look beautiful on deeper skin tones

Check them out in action on my latest Reel:

 

For my skin twins quick note that I’m a shade to a shade and a half lighter than I normally am. I had to buy a shade lighter in a few foundations because most of them are too dark for me. I do tan easily so I suspect I will get more color soon. For the Charlotte Tilbury foundation I’m Shade 6 now.

Overall I really like the quality and finish. My favorites are Pillow Talk Glow and Champagne Glow although I think I will definitely be wearing Bronze Glow more once I get some more color. I really love the color in Gilded Glow but it’s a bit warm/yellow on me right now. For a more neutral gold I think the Dior Forever Couture Highlighter in Golden Glow is more wearable since it’s more neutral and less yellow. For a less orangey/warm color than Charlotte Tilbury Rose Gold I think you can opt for the Chanel Oversize Highlighter in Or Rose.

Since I love her Glowgasm Beauty Light Wand in Peachgasm I kinda wish she had launched a peachy powder highlighter or a deeper pink to match her Pinkgasm shade. For now I will stick with the wands since I think those colors are perfect.

Charlotte Tilbury Quick & Easy Looks

May 22, 2022

Charlotte Tilbury Quick and Easy Looks

Charlotte Tilbury launched five instant-look sets in her new Quick and Easy Collection. These are kit trios with cream twist up sticks packaged in a mirrored cases for busy women on-the-go. I was intrigued by the concept and ordered a few. There are five color variations total. Kits are priced at $75 each but each component is available separately as a refill ($27 for the highlighter, $20 for the eye wand, $27 for the lip + cheek wand, $20 for the case). All available online at Charlotte Tilbury.

Each kit has 1 Easy Lip and Cheek Wand, 1 Easy Eye Wand and 1 Easy Highlighter Wand. While doing some research on the colors I found that while there are 5 different Easy Lip & Cheek Wands and 5 Easy Eye Wands, the Easy Highlighter Wand is available in 2 colors.

Charlotte Tilbury Quick and Easy Looks

on the nails: Dior Vernis Bayadere 633 

I bought 3 kits and 2 refills. After playing around with these I have mixed thoughts. I love the concept and the colors are beautiful. The packaging is clever and super convenient for on-the-go whether you want to throw it into your purse or travel. Quality and color payoff of the products is excellent. Here are my thoughts on each product.

The Easy Lip and Cheek Wands are really nice! I liked them more than I thought I would. I usually don’t like products that are for both lip + cheek because I find them either too dewy or too dry. These work for both. Swiping on the lips gives you medium to full color payoff. Finish on the cheeks is more subtle once you blend it out. Not 100% matte, still a little creamy, but not super emollient.

The Easy Highlighter Wands come in two colors and if you’re a fan of the dewy highlighter look they’re really nice. They don’t have a dry down and remain dewy but I wouldn’t call them quite as dewy as the Chanel Baume Essentiels. On my skin these have a nice shimmer glow without glitter or frost.

My thoughts on the Easy Eye Wands are mixed. Pros: once they set they are budge-proof, colors are buildable and easy to blend (but you have to work quickly), color selection is nice! Cons: a single shade isn’t enough for a complete eye look, product is a little bit dry so there is a bit of tugging on the skin but once you warm it up it’s easier to work with, product size is very small.

Onto a look at the kits! Swatches below:

Charlotte Tilbury Quick and Easy swatches

Pretty Fresh

I bought the refills for the Pretty Fresh Look with just the Easy Eye Wand and Easy Lip & Cheek Wand. On my skin the Pretty Fresh eye color is a neutral champagne shimmer that pretty much matches my eye lid color so it was nearly invisible once blended. In the look below I added the Easy Eye Wand in Golden Glow.

Pretty Fresh Lip & Cheek is a pretty vibrant coral pink. I think it’s fun and fresh for summer. I also added the Easy Highlighter Wand in Chic Glow which is a pale opal shimmer. Skin-tone wise I’m wearing the Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Foundation in Shade 7 now.

Overall Thoughts

I love the concept and the quality is on point. However I don’t think these are going to give you a “complete” look unless you’re more of a minimalist and want just a subtle pop of color to refresh your look. These kits will cover the basics and I think they’re great for a quick and easy look. As much as I love a simple eye look I find I still need 3 colors for the eyes. Another downside is the price. I think the price points are fairly steep given the size.

I like that you can buy the individual shades. The compact is clever and holds everything in place so product doesn’t get lost in your bag. Individuals also come with caps so the product is sealed. Overall I really love the Lip & Cheek Shades. I think they’re nice for that quick and easy look for both the lips and cheeks. All the colors I tried are super wearable and have good color payoff.

If you were looking for swatches and a review I hope you found this post helpful! I don’t know that I can call them must-haves. I like the concept, quality is great and I will use them.

You can find these available at Charlotte Tilbury right now. Have you checked these out? What did you think?

New Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Launches

April 21, 2022

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk New Launches

There are some new Pillow Talk launches from Charlotte Tilbury and I have a full haul + swatches for you! I have some hits and a couple partial misses in today’s roundup. You can find all the items out now, I hauled my picks from Charlotte Tilbury and Nordstrom.

If you’re shopping multiple items I highly recommend you check Charlotte Tilbury’s website first to see if the colors you’re looking for are still in stock. She has bundles available and most of them are customizable and have a price break.

Pillow Talk Multi-Glow Beautifying All Over Glow Highlighter

Pillow Talk Multi-Glow Beautifying All Over Glow Highlighter

There are two new highlighters called the Pillow Talk Multi-Glow Beautifying All Over Glow Highlighter ($45 each). There are two variations in Romance Light and Dream Light. Both have four shades each for a glass-like glow. Each palette has a mix of finely milled shimmers and a couple sparkle shades. The sparkle is super fine so it’s not chunky on the skin. Finish is smooth even though they’re very metallic.

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Multi-Glow Beautifying All Over Glow Highlighter

Romance Light is the lighter variation which I prefer for my skin tone. It surprised me how pretty the glow is! I don’t know that I would call it a must-have since you can get a similar effect with other highlighters on the market.

Below wearing:

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Multi-Glow Beautifying All Over Glow Highlighter Romance Light

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Multi-Glow Beautifying All Over Glow Highlighter Romance Light

Dream Light is the deeper variation. It’s a semi-miss for me, mainly because the color is a bit too deep for my skin tone as a highlighter. On my skin it pulls very copper, very warm and a bit too dramatic. It would probably work better on someone with very tan to deep skin tone. I do love it on the eyes though! I think the colors are stunning as an eyeshadow palette.

Pillow Talk Multi-Glow Beautifying All Over Glow Highlighter in Dream Light

The product describes this as an “all over glow” highlighter. I found them too glowy to be used all over the face.

Quality wise these get a solid A+ for texture, packaging, lasting power and finish.

Pillow Talk Lip & Cheek Glow

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip & Cheek Glow Colour of Dreams

The Pillow Talk Lip & Cheek Glow ($40) was relaunched in this collection. I bought both the last round but never used them so I gifted them away. I decided to give Colour of Dreams a try. The color is beautiful but I’m not a fan of the packaging style and it is too dewy for my cheeks. If you’re a fan of the dewy cheek look (like the Chanel Baume Essentiel) then I think you will love this.

It’s too dewy for my cheeks, a bit too sheer for the lips for my taste. It’s not a bad product. Just not what I look for in a lip or cheek product. Colour of Dreams is a neutral rosebud shade.

Swatched next to the Pillow Talk lip lineup for reference below.

Luxury Eye Palette + Eyes to Mesmerise

Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Eye Palette ($53) in Pillow Talk Dreams

Charlotte Tilbury added a new Luxury Eye Palette ($53) in Pillow Talk Dreams and I’m obsessed. It has two metallic shimmers with a fine texture and two soft pigmented mattes in a light rose and plum brown. I love the colors and color payoff. I think it’s really stunning!

Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Eye Palette ($53) in Pillow Talk Dreams swatches

I also swatched the Eyes to Mesmerise ($34) in Pillow Talk which isn’t new, but I hadn’t swatched it yet. If you like mauves you will love this one. I think it’s a really pretty shade, but I prefer Rose Gold for the pink tones.

Last I have a quick look at the Pillow Talk Beauty Light Wands ($40 each) in Pillow Talk Light/Medium and Medium/Deep. These have been restocked so if you had your eye on these they’re back! I’m reposting swatches I had from a previous review below.

Overall the quality and color payoff of everything in her new launch is great. The colors didn’t all work out for me, but there are some solid new loves for me. If I had to pick one stand out it would be her new Pillow Talk Dreams Eyeshadow Palette. The highlighters are nice but not must-haves.

Charlotte Tilbury Super Nudes Collection

September 7, 2021

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.

Charlotte Tilbury Nudegasm Face palette swatches

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

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

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.

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.)

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?
