"The new Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Filters Collection is inspired by phone filters to give you that soft-focus glow.
Launching April 19th"
Last month I had the pleasure of spending a wonderful afternoon celebrating the launch of the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter. If you haven't already tried this complexion boosting 'JLo in a Bottle' product you simply must, its more than worth the hype, the buzz, the everything - I genuinely love it! I have a blog post all about it here explaining how to wear it and more about what it actually is. But for a quick overview it basically acts like a filter for your face - giving you a beautiful radiant glow (rather than oil and shine) that just makes your skin look refreshed, healthy and flawless. You can wear it by itself, under foundation, mixed with foundation or on top of foundation (a bit like a highlighter for the latter). Whichever way you choose its certainly a product that has become a firm everyday favourite for me, I do not leave the house without it on and the amount of comments I have had on how good my skin is looking recently which is all down to this product.
Whilst at the London event, I met Charlotte Tilbury herself who is so lovely and inspiring, and if that's not all we were treated to a sneaky peek of her new collection that launches on April 19th! Continuing with the 'Beauty Filter' theme of Charlotte's Hollywood Flawless Filter comes the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Filters Collection which features a line of new products that claim to turn 'your Selfie into Reality'. These products have been designed and created to give us that 'phone filter effect' producing a glowy, radiant and flawless look in real life. And if the Hollywood Flawless Filter is an indicator of how amazing the collection is then we are in for such a treat.
Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes Volume 2
I have to say that when Charlotte announced this product I did an inner squeal. I absolutely love Charlotte Tilbury's Legendary Lashes Mascara, its my go-to everyday mascara, even after trying other mascaras its still my favourite and the one I've been wearing for almost a year. I just love how much fuller and longer my lashes look. It has helped to make my small eyes appear bigger and brighter and it's never irritated my eyes like some mascara's can.
The only negative I have found with the Legendary Lashes Original formula is that after wearing it for a few hours I sometimes end up with a small black smudge on my eye's crease line. I have deep set-eyes so its not only this mascara that does this, I have tried mascaras from Dior, Lancome, to name but a few over the years and had the same problem. I don't have oily eye lids and I always use an eye primer, but its something I am conscious of and will do a quick double check in the mirror throughout the day to wipe any smudging off. My way round it has been to wear a top coat of a waterproof mascara over the Legendary Lashes, this seems to seal the formula more and has certainly helped with little-to-no smudging at all and because I love how my lashes look with the original Legendary Lashes I've always been happy to apply it this way.
However, this new Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes Volume 2 I am hoping will change all of that. I remember Charlotte saying the Legendary Lashes Volume 2 should last longer, be harder wearing in humidity and be smudge-proof, so I am extremely excited to try this new improved formula. I'll be putting this mascara to the test and reporting back in a blog post comparing the Legendary Lashes Original to this new Legendary Lashes Volume 2 within the next few weeks. If this product is an improvement on an already fantastic mascara (with over 500% more volume) then I can see this becoming a huge beauty favourite (and my holy grail mascara).
Bigger Brighter Eyes Palettes - Eyeshadow Quad Palettes
There is not one but two new eyeshadow quad palettes launching on April 19th. These are not just any old palettes, these have been created to help transform your eyes into the biggest, brightest eyes and with a touch of sparkle too! Each quad palette contains a Prime, Enlarge, Define and Pop Shade. I always love how Charlotte's palettes are created with ease of application in mind, whilst also allowing versatility. These are the ideal day-to-evening palettes taking you from the office to the bar with a touch of smoke or sparkle.
- Prime - Ivory Cream
- Enlarge - Rose Gold (which looks so beautiful & I can see being hugely popular)
- Define - Reddish Brown
- Pop - Transparent Sparkle (I love that this is transparent so it can be added to the inner eye or across the lid to create an eye-opening effect without altering the colour of your eye shadow/look)
- Prime - Soft Champagne Gold
- Enlarge - Copper Gold
- Define - Dark Chocolate Shade
- Pop - deep brick red (this shade contrasts to most eye colours to add a vividness to the Iris just like a filter).
Pretty Youth Glow Filter - Blush and Highlighter Duo
A soft focus effect cream blush and highlight duo that have been designed as youth-enhancing cheek filters, giving you a soft focus fresh glow. These cream to powder duo compacts with an inside mirror are launching in 2 shades:
- Pretty Fresh - which is a pop of dolly pink with fresh pink pearlescent blush
- Seduce Blush - which is a pop of coral perfect for the upcoming Summer months
There is also a new 'Cheek Hug' Makeup Brush where the super soft bristles are designed to literally hug your cheek on application.
Charlotte Tilbury Collagen Lip Bath
The packaging for this lip product is just beautiful especially with the attention to detail of the heart applicator wand. Not only does the heart look adorable, its also such a practical shape for application. This will plump those lips whilst adding a gorgeous rose sheen gloss, another product I cannot wait to try.
