The Absolute Best Of Charlotte Tilbury Beauty
BY JENNY JUNG
Charlotte Tilbury will be readily available in NZ and Australia on the 21st of September! So here's what to watch out for before you miss your chance at the release.
14 SEPT - 2021
Rumour has it that MECCA will be welcoming Charlotte Tilbury in stores and online. If this doesn't excite you, then I don't know what will.
Darlings! Get ready for absolute havoc at your nearest MECCA because Charlotte Tilbury is coming to town! Here's a rundown of some absolute faves to put on your shopping list!
Goddess Skin Clay Mask
If you are looking for that extra insurance for the perfect complexion on a very special day, or you're a makeup artist looking for an excellent prep option, look no further. The Goddess Skin Clay Mask is one of the best out there as a prep step in your makeup routine.
This is not your typical clay mask that sucks out all the moisture in your skin. It's a soft-setting clay mask that tightens the appearance of pores while relaxing the skin, resulting in a vibrant and healthy-looking complexion.
Peptides, vitamin C, almond, and rosehip oil brightens and nourishes the skin. Goddess Skin Clay Mask won't overwhelm the texture of your skin like a super moist sheet mask, so it makes so much more sense to opt for a product like this before your special event makeup.
Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder
Oh my goodness, this is one of the best pressed-powders for anyone struggling with texture or dryness. You will fall in love with this dreamy formula that is truly suited for all skin types, dry or oily.
The Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder is so finely milled, Miss Tilbury describes Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder as 'cashmere' for the skin, and I totally agree. Powder is a must in my routine, and Airbrush Flawless Finish is like a beauty filter for real life.
I use this powder in a brighter shade for under the eyes and highlighting the forehead and chin. This powder is incredibly soft, so don't take it around your town nights like I did as it shattered into pieces, along with my heart.
This is an underrated Charlotte Tilbury must-have. The Superstar Lip features new shades, as well as adaptations of iconic shades like Pillow Talk.
The formula is reminiscent of the Chantecaille Lip Chic - glossy and bouncy. It isn't a tinted lip balm or an oily lipstick formula. It's almost like a lipstick and lipgloss hybrid that fills in the lines and creates a smooth look. Envelop your lips with hyaluronic acid and peptides to achieve that youthful and perky lip.
Charlotte Tilbury Superstar Lips, 'Sexy Lips'
We can't not talk about the Lip Cheat from Charlotte Tilbury. An ultra-creamy lip liner with just the right amount of firmness so you cheat your way to that full luscious lip. Waterproof, transfer-proof, and kiss-proof - you must get at least one of these bad boys because there is nothing like it.
The shades to look out for are 'Love Trap,' ‘Iconic Nude,’ 'Walk of No Shame,' and of course 'Pillow Talk.'
If you have a darker skin tone, Miss Tilbury sees you! Take a look at 'Pillow Talk Medium' and 'Pillow Talk Intense.'
Collagen Lip Bath in 'Walk of No Shame'
Charlotte Tilbury really outdid the lip gloss game with this one. Collagen Lip Bath is formulated with lip-loving ingredients such as marine collagen, peptides, vitamin A, marula oil, and more.
Why Walk of No Shame? This shade is 100% universal - pale, sunkissed or dark; boost your confidence with this global hit, rosey gloss.
I just imagined this with 'Love Trap' Lip Cheat, and I honestly teared up a little. This gloss will seduce even yourself when you catch your reflection in the mirror.
Eyes to Mesmerise
If you've been wanting to explore the world of eyeshadow but palettes overwhelm you, or it seems too overcomplicated, don't give up yet. My advice is cream shadow. Shimmer all over the eyelid and lower lash line with a coat of mascara is a foolproof makeup look that is effortless yet effective.
Eyes to Mesmerise gives you enough time to blend the colour, but it is set for life once it dries down. Try ‘Pillow Talk’ for that quintessential rose gold shimmer. Otherwise ‘Walk of No Shame’ will fulfil all your copper dreams.
Cheek to Chic
If you are a blush fiend like myself, consider getting yourself the Charlotte Tilbury Classic: Cheek to Chic. Looks a little like a nipple, which is a running joke in the beauty world, but this composition has a purpose!
The two-toned blush is intended to create a realistic and dimensional blushed look. This blush is luminous and makes sure you won't look flat with its light flex technology. At most, the Cheek to Chic is pearly, not shimmery or glittery.
Shades to look out for are 'Pillow Talk Intense,' 'Ecstasy,' and 'The Climax.'

Pillow Talk Lip & Cheek Glow
This one is for the easy breezy guys and gals who want to get out the door with just a few makeup steps.
I have seen many lip and cheek duos that are great on the cheeks but translates ashy on the lips. Sometimes, it's the opposite issue - great on the lips but slimy on the cheeks. Pillow Talk Lip & Cheek Glow is one of the only makeup duos that perform well on lips and cheeks. Formulated with vitamin E for that perfectly balanced dew that won't be a mess by the end of the day.

Hollywood Contour Wand
I'm sure you all know about the Filmstar Bronze and Glow, the coveted beauty favourite. So I won't bore you by gushing on and on about how great it is. Instead, I want to talk about the Hollywood Contour Wand.
The formula is unique and it may seem unfamiliar at first. However, once you get the hang of it, you won’t be able to get enough. Usually, cream contours are cream to powder or opaque and extra defining. The Hollywood Contour Wand, on the other hand, is on the sheer side and almost watery. This makes it great for buildable coverage, liberal use, and no-makeup looks too! An uber versatile product that gives you that snatched contour!

I seriously cannot contain my excitement for this release, and I am ready to splurge on all the beautiful Charlotte Tilbury goodness. Don't mind me if you see a crazy lady screaming in the middle of Mecca near Charlotte Tilbury. Anyway, I'll be watching out for all your fantastic makeup looks using Charlotte Tilbury!
