So if you seen my birthday beauty wishlist then you may remember knowing that I had my eye on a few Charlotte Tilbury products. Although let’s be honest here, I always have my eye on Charlotte Tilbury products! Anyway if you follow me on Instagram then you may have seen that those items got well and truly crossed off the wishlist! So after doing a bit of testing (obviously right the minute the postman sent them through the door) I thought I would share my thoughts on my new CT pieces that have heart-eyed emojis written all over them.
First up is one of her amazing matte revolution lipsticks from her Summer 2015 Norman Parkinson collection. As you can see I went for the nude option being Miss Kensington. Her matte lipstick range really is like no other. With a creamy smooth application and a comfortable feeling on the lips it’s hard to believe it’s a matte formula. The shade Miss Kensington is the perfect nude. It is one of those ‘my lips but better’ shades. It really is a perfect everyday shade with an amazing moisturising formula.
Probably one of the most hyped Charlotte Tilbury products going is her Lip Cheat lip liner in Pillow Talk. With a lot of lip lining loving (major tongue-twister alert) going on recently I had to pick it up. The shade Pillow Talk is again the perfect ‘my lips but better’ shade. It really is a very natural pink shade that matches super well with my own lip colour. The formula is super creamy and glides easily on the lips therefore creating much fuller lips is a breeze. It also works as a perfect nude combo alongside Miss Kensington.
Lastly, I picked up one of her Colour Chameleon eyeshadow pencils. The shade range is specifically aimed at different eye colours to help enhance your eyes. For each eye colour, there is a day and night shade option so naturally I picked up the shade Champagne Diamonds, a day time shade for those with blue eyes. Obviously you don’t need to stick to the suggested shades but I loved the look of the champagne toned shimmer. The shade is just gorgeous and looks perfect in the inner corner. As a light wash over the lids it appears a little too sheer on me and more just glittery but built up heavily it can create a gorgeous shimmery lid that would look beautiful during the festive season! The formula isn’t as creamy as the By Terry counterparts but being a lot cheaper it still has a easy glide on formula that can be easily blended out. I am totally up for trying some of the more intense shades out!

So while August may mark the month of going back to school, the ending of summer it also marks something else special (for me anyway). August is my birthday month *celebration dance* So of course that means lots of cake and the perfect opportunity to have a little splurge on some of my wish list goodies. Like all us beauty junkies, the beauty wishlist is never ending but I thought I would share with you all some of the products at the top of my list that hopefully I will pick up during the month as a little birthday treat!
First up is a new lipstick from Charlotte Tilbury cause you can’t have a wishlist without CT and if you’re gonna treat yourself this is the definition of treat yo’ self. Now I do have a couple of CT lipsticks that I would love to get my hands on but Miss Kensington, a gorgeous nude pink makes top of the list as it is a limited edition release… even more reason to purchase! The formula of these are amazing and this colour is so up my street!
Now I constantly hear about how amazing Mac eyeshadows are yet I haven’t purchased a single one. I am so desperate to start my own palette and I want to make a little quad first. Two eyeshadows I would like to get my hands on are Blackberry and Cork which both look super pretty! What Mac eyeshadows do you recommend?
Now time for the ultimate lust worthy product. The gorgeous Tartelette palette. Now I have heard so much regarding the Tarte brand but I’ve still not made a purchase since its pretty tricky to get a hold of in the UK. Luckily though QVC are a UK stockist of Tarte and one item I am desperate to get a hold of is this gorgeous all matte palette. I was never much of a matte eyeshadow fan with my heart more towards shimmery finishes although the look of this palette completely changed my mind. I just need matte in my life. Annoyingly though this is now out of stock, please QVC I need this palette, its my birthday!
Of course I couldn’t just stick with one CT product! One product I’ve been dying to try for so long is of course the well hyped Pillow Talk lip liner. The formula of these are meant to be spot on and the colour looks gorgeous so why not! Also I love the look of her Colour Chameleon eyeshadow sticks! The shades are supposed work with your eye colour and make your eyes pop. Since I have blue eyes I would love to try Champagne Diamonds which is a beautiful champagne pearly shade that would lovely for both during the day and at night.
