It has been a long time since I have done a blog post dedicated to makeup and skincare but I wanted to create a post which is all about the new products that I have been ordering online. So I thought I would sit down and fill you in on what my current purchases have been in the last couple of weeks and what my honest opinions were of them.
Charlotte's Tilbury Magic Crystal Elixir is finally here and I was dreaming of buying this product and then I finally plucked up the courage to buy it. Charlotte collaborated with expert scientist to bring us a ground breaking serum for hydrated, youthful looking skin with a magic matrix of ingredients. The serum has golden Vitamin C for a brighter-looking complexion and hydration powerhouse Polyglutamin Acid which is a supercharged skincare ingredient that's over 4X more hydrating than Hyaluronic Acid.
I was very intrigued to buy this product especially after reading how she created the serum and the results looked amazing, the packaging is on another level and this is another reason why people buy Charlotte's products as they are stunning! So far I am loving the serum, it has brightened and hydrated my skin so much, as soon as you apply the product you notice such a glow to your skin. My pores look so much better and my skin looks so healthy and hydrated. The serum is very pricey however I do think it is worth it, I would recommend going onto Charlotte Tilbury's website to have a look at the product information before buying as it tells you all the information you need to know.
Since we have been forced to stay at home at the moment I have been loving watching beauty video's on IGTV whilst I'm not working and I came across a make up product by MAC which I haven't heard before, strobe cream. It really caught my eye and because I am really into glowy makeup I knew I needed to see what this product was all about. I am in love and let me tell you why.. it smooths my skin, it is very hydrating and perfect for a glowy base before you apply your foundation/tinted moisturiser on. It is very much like a primer and the great thing about is it makes your skin go from being dull to glowy in seconds!
I love Charlotte's Pillow Talk range it is incredible and one of her products which I am just in love with is the beauty light wand highlight which is described as a 'Magical highlighter blush formula which adds a kiss of colour to your checks and plays with the light beautifully for a soft focus beauty glow'. The colour pillow talk original is a very nude pink, I add a little bit to the apple of my cheeks and it makes your skin look glowing and gorgeous!
I did a Charlotte Tilbury delivery a couple of weeks ago, and bought the Airbrush Flawless Foundation and the Airbrush Flawless Finish powder. I have been wanting to try the powder for so long and so far I am loving it! The packaging is absolutely gorgeous, in love with it all! Now the foundation originally came out last summer but I bought the fairest shade that Charlotte does but it was very very white on my skin and I have a neutral skin tone, I matched it online which was hard and I went for shade 2 Cool. On the website you can find your foundation shade by popping it what brand you use and the shade then it will match with the Airbrush Flawless Foundation and it came up with Cool 2. Just to let you know I use the IT Cosmetics CC Cream Fair which is their lightest shade and it works really well for me. I would give this a go as it really does work and even though the Airbrush flawless foundation is matte it doesn't feel and look cakey. I mix with the CC Cream and even the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter and it looks great!
