Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Haul

Happy Wednesday Gorgeous!

So I did it again, I went crazy on charlottetilbury.com somebody needs to stop me - I can't control my CT addiction!

Charlotte offers free delivery on orders over £50.00 making it even harder to resist!


Today I will be reviewing Filmstar Bronze & Glow, The Powder & Sculpt Brush, Brow Lift, and Wonderglow.

Let's start by looking at what Ms Tilbury has to say about these products (If you wish to go straight to my thoughts, just scroll down):

Filmstar Bronze & Glow
This is a secret that silver screen sirens have kept to themselves for years – and once I share it with you – so will you! With FILMSTAR BRONZE & GLOW you can slim, sculpt, shorten, trim and highlight your features. It’s amazing what clever shading and highlighting tricks can do to your facial framework - it’s an illusion that I use all the time, particularly for red carpet scrutiny, and my clients can’t get enough of it. Take what you were born with and maximise your assets with FILMSTAR BRONZE & GLOW!

The Powder & Sculpt Brush
My Powder & Sculpt Brush is fantastic for any facial sculpting or highlighting, to create your ideal facial framework. The tapered end allows you to shade the hollows of your cheeks or temples and highlight your cheekbones, nose or even the bow of your lip. I also use it as a precision powder brush to avoid overloading the face with powder. It will deliver just the right amount of product to your T-zone and nose area. This brush is a must-have for a truly professional finish.

Brow Lift
It’s a well-known industry secret that a perfectly groomed eyebrow can give your entire face a lift. No look is complete without groomed eye brows – they frame your face and finish your eye make-up. I’m inspired by the Supermodel Brow of the nineties to create the prefect shape: it starts slightly squared off at the inner corner, tapers into a perfect arch and finishes in a fine point.

Wonderglow
I have created a miracle fix to turn around tired, dull, dehydrated skin in a beauty flash. It’s called WONDERGLOW and is powered by a breakthrough Fluorescent Core Light Diffuser that cleverly steals UV light from its surroundings and re-emits it as skin luminosity to disguise and transform drab, sleep-deprived skin. WONDERGLOW is a visionary new anti-age hybrid. It’s a cross between an anti-age elixir and a complexion-enhancing light diffuser to give your skin an instant “spotlight” effect. Collagen-boosting peptides and patented wrinkle-preventing ingredients are fused with light-reflecting microspheres with a fluorescent core that fill in wrinkles and scatter light to blur away lines and flood skin with luminosity. Create the definition of youthful, healthy skin: glowing, hydrated and effervescent. It can be used underneath my LIGHT WONDER foundation, on its own for a relaxed, effortlessly dewy look or on top of makeup through-out the day to give your skin an instant pick-me-up – it’s one of my seven wonders for your skin!

Now, time to give my verdict..

Filmstar Bronze & Glow

This product comes in a gorgeous compact, to be honest I wouldn't except anything less from Charlotte her products all look impeccable.


I was initially dubious about buying this compact as I really dislike 'Shimmer'; every picture I had seen prior to purchasing looked very glitter ball-like.

I was pleasantly surprised as the shimmer in the bronzer does not translate onto the skin at all, however the highlighter unfortunately does - now although the shimmer is very subtle and although it does look very beautiful its not a product I will be using on myself.

I think this product will look absolutely stunning on most women, but for me I like that 'no make up, just perfect natural skin look' and if I wore this - people would most definitely be able to detect make up on the skin.

The bronzer is a little stunner in its own right, I kind of wish you could buy the bronzer separately. The colour of the Sculpt is very 'Natural' looking and creates a real looking tan, it is really buildable which is something I love.

Retails at £49.00 - I give this product 8/10

The Powder & Sculpt Brush



I couldn't believe how SMALL this brush actually was when it arrived, pictures can be very misleading. The brush came in a little box, and I thought to myself  'they must have sent me the wrong thing, NO WAY can my brush be in that tiny little thing!' but it was.

As Charlotte says, the shape of the brush is great for the contour of your cheekbones and if your a bit of a novice when it comes to makeup and you need a simple brush to do the trick, this would probably work very well for you as the brush does all of the work.

It feels very nice to hold, and does look very glam, with its rose gold finish !

Retails at £35.00 - I give this product 6/10

Brow Lift Eyebrow Pencil
This brow pencil is fab-u-lous. I brought the pencil in Shade Cara D inspired by Cara Delevingne this is the darkest shade of the 3 however don't let this put you off as the colour is VERY natural.

The pencil has a slanted tip which is perfect for creating 'real looking' brows, you can create natural looking strands of hair and build up the dimension of your brow without just adding block colour.

It is packaged in one of those 'twist for more product' tubes which did concern me as I was worried the product may snap however *touchwood*, no problems.

If you pull the pencil from the middle, you will find a rather nifty little highlighter for your brow bone - its not the highest quality highlighter but its a good little extra.

Only downside is the staying power, it lasts a pretty long time but I've seen pencils last longer however they did not have all of the above benefits - so its swings and round-abouts!

The results!
















Retails at £22.50 - I give this product a 8/10

Wonderglow



I received a sample of this product from The Tilbury customer service team, they are absolutely wonderful just email them on customercare@charlottetilbury.com and I'm sure they will be more than happy to send you a couple of free samples.

Now on first impressions, this product does come out very glittery indeed - AND as a shimmer-phobe I was worried I would be left looking like a drag queen BUT I was wrong, unlike the shimmer in The Filmstar Bronze & Glow it does not translate onto the skin - Hallelujah!

In certain lights, I will notice a very, very slight shimmer on the skin but its nothing offensive and actually looks very nice - even on a guy!!

It leaves the skin looking radiant and awake, I think it looks great on its own - just bang on some concealer and some brow pencil and you have the perfect look for lounging around the pool on holiday.

I wouldn't personally apply this after your make-up, in my opinion in can ruin what you have just created.

Retails at £38.50 - I give this product a 8/10

  3. I can't wait to try this out tomorrow when I go for my makeover at the Charlotte Tilbury counter. Thank you for the review - I like to have complete control over my shimmer products and much prefer matte bronzers so it will be interesting to test this out on my skin to see if the shimmer transfers for me or not.

  5. You're right, Charlotte's products always look of high quality. Excellent brow results! We're always a bit ambiguous of those 'twist' tubes too. Fab detailed post :-)

  8. I'd love to try Bronze & Glow but I'm really pale - I'd hate to spend that much money and then find it was too dark. The brow pencil sounds really natural, your brows look so good! xx
