Review: Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In A Palette, Cheek To Chic, Legendary Lashes, Airbrush Powder, Eyes To Mesmerise and K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipsticks

Charlotte Tilbury is a brand I have long wanted to try, as her products are raved about by everyone that uses them. So when I was recently sent some of her makeup range to test out, you can say I was thrilled.

Today I thought I would share my thoughts on the products I have been testing over the past few months.

Instant Look In a Palette (Natural Beauty)

Due to popular demand, Charlotte’s Instant Look In A Palette is back! Featuring 7 exclusive glow-giving shades, it’s 5-minute makeup MAGIC for every woman aged 18-80. From wide-eyed, hypnotic eyes, to gleaming contoured skin, it’s the ultimate fresh-faced look on-the-go!
A radiance-enhancing, colour-correcting palette, every woman needs this beauty kit in her life! Whether a makeup pro or a complete beginner, this is an instant natural beauty look to treat and transform from dawn ‘til dusk!

I am obsessed with this palette. From the sleek packaging, to the smooth, blendable powders, this is a palette that is great for everyday. The small palette contains three natural eyeshadow shades, two blushes, and a highlighter and bronzer. The eyeshadows are gorgeous everyday shades; one to prime to surface of the lid, a glowing champagne shade to bring dimension to the lid, and a taupe shade to define lids and create a smoky eye look. The two blushes included are to be used together; one in a rose tea shade to be applied to the apple of the cheek and blended out, and one in a pink shade to applied just to the apples. These two shades together are gorgeous and add a gorgeous flush to skin without being overdone. The bronzer is the perfect shade for my pale skin, and warms up the skin and defines without any orange tones at all. The highlighter pan surprised me the most; as it didn't appear as a very intense highlighter, but boy can this highlighter be built up. It is a gorgeous golden candlelight glow that looks so natural on the skin, but can be built up as much as you desire.
This palette would be best suited to those with light/medium skin tones that are looking for a palette that can cover all of their every day needs. Those that like to change up their look everyday probably wouldn't get much use from this, as it has limited shades, but for those that love a gorgeous, glowing, natural look, look no further.

Cheek To Chic Swish & Pop Blusher (Ecstasy)

A 2-step application ritual, each shade is a creamy, colour-rich texture containing finely crushed pearls to give your skin a limitless glow. Enliven dull skin in just a Swish and a Pop!

I love the versatility of the blush shades in this range, which ensures that there is a blush colour for most skin tones. This blush gives a buildable, peachy glow to the cheeks with a hint of glow, minus the excess sparkle. This blush is suitable for both day and night time, and is the type of blush I reach for all the time. Plus it looks like a boob, what more do you need in life?!

Legendary Lashes Mascara

This revolutionary new lash-enhancing elastic formula extends out the lashes like a piece of elastic and holds them there for the longest, most luscious lashes of your life with 13x more volume in just three coats! It doesn’t clump, doesn’t crack and doesn’t drop! Whenever I do red carpet work I will choose to dial up either the eyes or lips, but one thing that is always FULL VOLUME are the lashes. A thick, lush Hollywood false lash effect will enhance the shape of your eye, bring out the eye colour and frame the entire face. This is really important as the longer the lashes, the more flattering the look - whether you are creating a wing, doll, or false-lash look, it is ALL about the lashes!

This mascara is INCREDIBLE. It gives a false lash look in just ONE quick coat. It is a wet formula, and coats each and every lash to give incredible volume and length easily. It is packaged in the most glorious packaging, I mean look at that gold!! One thing with this mascara is that it does have the tendency to smudge underneath my eyes, but for something that can be quickly wiped away, I still consider this mascara worth it. I will go as far to say it gives me the most dramatic, longest lashes I have experienced from a single coat of mascara.

K.I.S.S.I.N.G  Lipsticks

This is my fail-safe recipe for perfect lips… Enriched with a breakthrough, secret ingredient, the Lipstick Tree, an anti-oxidant that naturally protects lips from UV damage and external pollution leaving them cashmere soft and irresistible. Blended with special waxes and clever light-diffusing pigments for pert, full-bodied, ultra-brilliant lips that ensure you leave a lasting impression!

I received two lipsticks in the shades Nude Kate and Love Bite. The lipsticks in this range are the most gorgeous of shades, a capsule colour wardrobe of backstage nudes to red carpet reds made to suit any skin tone. From their opaque shades, the texture, the comfort and the longevity of these lipsticks, Charlotte is really onto a winner with these. These lipsticks don't dry the lips and are comfortable worn all day long. They don't bleed, or sink into fine lines, and lets not forget the packaging!! I just need all of the other shades in this range, pronto!

Airbrush Flawless Powder

A breathable, super-luxe, micro-fine powder features nano-particle technology that blurs away lines and imperfections for a bright, illuminating finish. No caking, dusting or sitting in lines – this is my powder revolution!.

If you are looking for a great luxe setting powder, look no further. This powder is so lightweight and quickly mattifies shine and sets liquid foundation. I find it seems to blur my skin, it really makes my fine lines and pores less noticeable. It really works to mattify skin all day long. Just a great powder!

Eyes To Mesmerise (Bette)

Eyes To Mesmerise Cream Eye Shadow pots – a clever cream-to-sheen formula that creates maximum impact with minimum effort. Simply add a sheer wash of colour with your fingertip for a flattering finish for day, or add drama for evening by applying with my Eye Blender Brush for high-impact, high-shine lids. It’s the ultimate foolproof product and forms part of my One-Minute No-Mirror Makeup.

This coppery bronze shade is just so gorgeous and pigmented (you need the tiniest amount of product!). It is so easy and quick to use, just add a quick swipe to each lid for an easy every day look that can be glammed up. I found to my surprise that it set quite quickly, and lasted ALL day without creasing at all (not even with my hooded eyes!) For this reason, this is probably one of my top picks  from this range!! I need more colours now!


I am obsessed with everything I tried from Charlotte Tilbury, and already have my eyes set on her Bronze and Glow palette, and more of her cream eyeshadows and lipsticks!
