I know I don’t usually post on a Saturday afternoon, but this weekend is proving to be very busy and I really wanted to get this up for you! The lovely team at Charlotte Tilbury sent me a few of her new products to try, and after much playing for the past week or so I’ve been dying to tell you all about them and give you the low-down on my first impressions..
First up is the Magic Away concealer. Let me start by saying this is absolutely perfect for the under eye area. I can get dark circles if I’m not getting as much sleep as I need, and I’m not exaggerating when I say this erases them immediately! It’s a twist-up sponge applicator and comes in the most gorgeous packaging, as all of Charlotte’s products usually do. On blemishes it can be a bit drying, so I think I would stick to using it for under my eyes only, or if I get a very bad breakout that needs heavily concealing.
Try this one if: you want something that makes you look like you’ve definitely had your 8 hours, if not more!
I’m not an expert to powder, but I was really excited to try the Magic Powder, as I do have oily-prone skin and I hate that feeling of looking greasy. This is super finely milled, meaning it doesn’t clog the skin whatsoever, but just gives a lovely, healthy, semi-matte finish that truly does look natural. I’ve actually surprised myself with how much I love this product, as I usually skip powder on my makeup days but now I’m reaching for this every time. Plus I must add it makes my makeup (which usually disappears after a good 2 hours) last for so much longer, and when I get home from work, I actually look the same as when I left, which let me assure you is a revelation in itself.
Try this one if: you’re in the market for a new powder that looks natural and barely detectable on the skin. I’m pretty positive this would work for any skin types.
Have you tried any of these two products yet?
