When Charlotte Tilbury filmed a video tutorial using her new ‘Quick ‘N’ Easy Natural Glowing Look Set’ and the model looked effortless yet flawless, I was sold in 10 seconds flat.
The ‘5 Minute Makeup Look’ sets are available in four looks, ‘Red Carpet Red’, ‘Smokey Eye Evening’, ‘Daytime Chic’ and ‘Natural Glowing’, which is the one I picked up.
My set contains a 15ml sample of Wonderglow, a mini Legendary Lashes Mascara, full size Beach Stick in Moon Beach, a Colour Chameleon Eyeshadow Stick in Amber Haze and a Matte Revolution Lipstick in Very Victoria. Having three full size products and two minis makes this set excellent value for money and a great way to try the brand if you haven’t already.
The product I was most excited about was Wonderglow, now my skin is dry, it looks a little grey, so I was hoping it would perk up my skin. It’s a light, shimmery fluid, which when blended out gives a beautiful sheen to the skin. It can be applied as a primer or base, mixed into foundation or added over the top as a subtle highlight. I’m really enjoying using this as a base, after moisturiser, at the moment.
The product I was unsure of was the Beach Stick; it’s a cream blusher, which I wouldn’t normally opt for. However, when I did give this a go, I really liked the slight gloss it gave to my cheeks, bringing them to life. The one tip I have for this product is to swipe and dab gently, otherwise you can pull some of your foundation off.
Everyone raves about the Legendary Lashes Mascara, I do like it but it takes some work. You need to apply thin layers to build up length and volume. Once applied the mascara doesn’t leave your lashes feeling crispy.
I already own a Colour Chameleon in Bronzed Garnet, a bronzed brown with a red undertone. This set contains the shade Amber Haze; it’s a classic brown with a hint of gold, suitable for any eye colour. These sticks make eyeshadow application effortless; you just need to blend the edges with a fluffy brush.
I already own Amazing Grace and Glastonberry lipsticks from the Matte Revolution range. Charlotte’s mattes are comfortable to wear and are never drying. Very Victoria, featured in this set, is a very wearable and on trend brown toned pink. I love it as an everyday shade.
I’m so happy I purchased this set, I love the shades Charlotte has chosen and the quality is amazing. I have a trip to Paris this Sunday and I’ll be packing this. You do need to add in other items such as foundation, concealer and brows but this gives you the majority of your look in minutes.
I’m tempted to purchase one of the other options from this line, as well as the Instant Look in a Palette. I’m well and truly hooked on Charlotte Tilbury!
