Light Glow FOTD | Charlotte Tilbury Try-Out

While I was playing with a good amount of Charlotte Tilbury products this month, I remember the gems sitting unloved in my stash.  This FOTD was intended to try out the Light Wonder foundation which Sam kindly included in her last package (link), and the rest were basically 'slapped on'.  Hope you enjoy~

((side note, I find the packaging of CT products really photogenic, the rose gold is not only pretty in the hands and to the eyes, but the camera also loves it.))

CT Light Wonder, see how liquid and thin it is

Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Youth-Boosting Perfect Skin Foundation #4 Fair

The 1.5 ml sample is adequate for 2 sheer applications or 1 (too) heavy full face.  This is the original foundation CT released which is has more luminosity and less coverage than the new one.  I find the actual packaging a little humble for the price point (32 pounds for a plastic squeeze tube), whereas the newer Magic Foundation way more reasonable (29.5 pounds for a glass bottle with pump).

I hope this illustrates how #4 is darker than me but blendable.
The colouring of this foundation is funny.  I don't fully understand it so I won't comment further.  #4 is clearly a shade or two darker than me, but due to its consistency, it can be blended in and looks acceptably 'natural'.   I really like the consistency, application, coverage, finish on the skin, wear time and the fragrance, of this foundation.  However, due to the colour-matching issue I won't be repurchasing unless one day I can visit a counter in person.

Charlotte Tilbury The Retoucher Conceal & Treat Stick #2 Fair

Besides concealing and highlighting, The Retoucher's formula has hydrating and filling properties.  I like it a lot and find it better than many of the conceal/highlight pens I've tried, high-end or budget.  Picked this shade out blindly but it matches me pretty nicely.  25 pounds for a 3.5 ml concealer pen is not too bad, too, recommend!

Blush (only the outer rim) by Cheek to Chic #Ecstasy:

A bit of loose powder Hera Precious Powder #2 (brilliant but discontinued), Burberry Effortless Eyebrow Definer #02 Sepia (decent for natural soft not defined look, great for near-black hair), Bourjois Eyebrow Fixing Mascara #24 Transparent

messy application but hope you can see the texture

Luxury Palette #The Dolce Vita

Only the lightest shade dabbed onto lid, reddish shade (top right) dabbed onto outer lid, and then with a blending brush, with the slightest amount of darkest shade (bottom right), tackled the 'outer-v'.  Very rough indeed, the application and blending.  The colours are truly beautiful and the shadows are buttery and pigmented.  They didn't last all day on me without a base/primer though.

Kate Lash Maximizer White (a great base for many mascaras) & Make Up Forever Aqua Smoky Lash (fabulous on its own, but with Kate makes a fantastic combo)

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick SPF15 (my lips like it)

Also, I've decided not to post on weekends.  
Monday to Friday is pushing my limit to the max!  I hope you understand and will support by reading as regularly as I post~ ;)

Beautiful wishes,
