CHARLOTTE TILBURY DREAMING


I have always admired Charlotte Tilbury's beauty brand from afar ever since it first launched, but have never actually owned anything for myself. This is mainly because there isn't a Charlotte Tilbury counter anywhere near where I live, and even though I know you can purchase it online, I always prefer to try and test makeup out in person when I'm buying from a brand for the first time. 


This weekend I went to London for the day to celebrate my grandparents birthdays, do a bit of Christmas shopping and soak up the Christmas atmosphere with all of the lights. We spent most of the day around the Covent Garden area which is one of my favourite areas because it's got a mixture of designer and high street brands, as well as the lovely market area too! As soon as we walked out of the underground station I spotted the Charlotte Tilbury store and was so so happy that they had opened one there. Apparently it was the first day of opening so I was really excited to be able to get one of the first glimpses of the new store..which of course was as beautifully designed as the products are!

I wasn't sure what to purchase first but thought Id go with a lipstick and lipliner because lip products are my favourite makeup item to buy, so I knew I'd get a lot of wear out of them! My mum also purchased one of the amazing eyeshadow quads which are also gorgeous. The products themselves are of such high quality and the packaging is just a dreaaaam with everything being rose gold! 

The lipsticks are £23.00 and the lip liners are £16.00. There are so many gorgeous shades to choose from but I decided to go with a classic nude combo that can be worn every day for any occasion. The lipstick is in the shade 'Penelope Pink' and its a gorgeous sheer baby pink colour which would enhance your natural lips. It's really long lasting and has a lovely moisturising sheen to the formula which means its really hydrating compared to some matte finish lipsticks.






The lip liner I chose is in the shade 'Pillow Talk' which is what I was recommended to wear underneath the lipstick. Its a matte dark pink colour which aims to make your lipstick even more long-lasting and enhance the colour even more. I would probably wear this all over the lips before applying the lipstick but some people prefer just to outline their lips with a liner. Even though the lip liner is matte it's still really hydrating on the lips unlike some other lip liners which make my lips feel cracked and tight. 




The eyeshadow quad is £38.00 and is in the shade 'Rock Chick' and is made up of four gorgeous grey toned shades. There are three shimmer shades and one matte shade for the crease to create a whole eye look. I haven't actually applied these myself as they're for my mum, but I did swatch them all in store and they are really highly pigmented and blend really softly. I can't wait to get my hands on one of these for myself!
