Charlotte Tilbury Makeup – First Impressions Review

Charlotte Tilbury Makeup – First Impressions Review

Hey everyone, I hope you’re well.

I haven’t been in the right mind frame for blogging the last few days, even though I’ve been off work and had all the time in the world! Anyway, I thought I’d share my new found love, which is the beautiful brand, Charlotte Tilbury!

I recently bought  few bits from there as firstly, I couldn’t resist the stunning packaging and secondly, I’ve heard super good things about the products.

So firstly, I went on the site and saw there were some items in the sale, which is quite rare I think so I had to take a look! I had seen CT Quick ‘n’ Easy kits since they came out last year and I have always wanted one, but I never had a spare £55. So when I saw they were on offer for £33, I had to buy one.

I got the Smokey eye look – which is now back up to £55!

I still think for £55 it is a really good purchase because you get 4 things in the bag (including the lovely makeup bag as well).

In this one you get:

  • Eyes: Colour Chameleon in Black Diamonds
  • Rock ‘N’ Kohl Eye Liner in Bedroom Black
  • Mini Legendary Lashes Mascara
  • Lip: K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick in Penelope Pink

Charlotte Tilbury Quick n Easy

Honestly, everything is so gorgeous! When it came I was so excited to open it up and look at the each and every one to see if it was as good as I’d hoped.

Firstly, I just want to say, I ended up hosting a giveaway and giving away the K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick in shade ‘Penelope Pink’ and also the Colour Chameleon in Black Diamonds. CT accidentally sent me 2 of those in the bag instead of the Mascara, so they sent me that separately.

Anyway, the lipstick was such a gorgeous shade, and I was gutted to be giving it away because I definitely would have worn that shade a lot.

So that brings me on to the other item I bought to keep (as I needed one of her lipsticks!) which was the Matt Revolution- Pillowtalk!!!! Oh wow, it’s soooo beautiful! It is quite a dark rose shade, so I’m not sure it will suit everyone, and I’d have to wear it with a bit of bronzer to make sure I don’t wash my face out, but it it’s really pigmented and long-lasting (which is what I NEED in a lipstick).

Charlotte Tilbury Pillowtalk

I’d say it is one of my favourite shades of lipsticks! It is £24 (which is on the pricier side!!), you can pick it up here.

So, overall my first impressions of Charlotte Tilbury are really good. I know it is pricey and you have to  pluck up the courage to press the ‘pay now’ button (well I do anyway). However, the products are worth spending the extra bit of cash on.

The eyeliner is SOOOO pigmented and literally the best eyeliner I’ve tried. I don’t wear eyeliner often, only really when I go out for the night, but I will be picking this up whenever I do now!

Again, the Chameleon in Black Diamonds I won’t be wearing often, but when I do go for a drastic eye look I cannot wait to wear this properly. It is also so pigmented and although it’s black the glitter in it tones it down so it’s not too intense which is what I was worried about.

In the back I got a mini Legendary Lashes Mascara. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s the mini version but although I like it, it seemed quite clumpy and thick, however I think it is a good mascara to apply on top of layers bit of mascara already.

There we have it, my first impressions on Charlotte Tilbury, and I feel sorry for my bank account as I’m sure (especially around the next few months) I will be picking up some more bits as it’s such a beautiful brand.

Have you tried CT? If you have what’s your favourite product?

    You know how much I want to try Charlotte Tilbury especially Pillow Talk and now it’s even moooore! It sounds like the perfect shade for autumn/winter and I need it in my life! I can’t believe you got this set for £33 that’s such an amazing deal when the lipsticks are £24 alone! Not jealous at all… haha!

    I love CT products, especially the lipsticks are my favorite ones. Firstly, i got the Pillow Talk which i think i wear almost everyday and then i went for Hot Lips- Kidman’s Kiss which is more pink/nude but so beautiful as Pillow Talk. I love your collection and your presentation! Great review Rebecca!

    Such a lovely brand and so popular these days. Especially in the blogosphere! I’ve had the pillow talk lip cheat liner for ages and love it but dying to try the lippy to go with it! Bet you struggled to give away the Penelope Pink ?

      I did struggle to give it away but I’m sure I’ll be buying a few more soon! Ooo I also need to buy a lip liner ? X

    I am literally obsessed with the Pillow Talk lipstick. It’s my baby! I kinda agree with you on the mascara, I had the full size version and although it was a good mascara to build up volume, I found that it smudged and leaked onto my face throughout the day!

      Ah I’m glad you have the same thoughts on the mascara as me! It really is such a nice mascara isn’t it ? Thank you for reading xx

    I loved this review! I’ve been wanting to try out their products for a while, but they’re a little difficult to come by in the United states. The only way to get their products is online for me, so I’m hoping that the products come here soon! xxx

      Ah thank you for reading lovely. It’s such a shame they don’t! Although I don’t think it’ll be long. I bought mine online, but it’s always good to go into store 🙂 xx
