The Charlotte Tilbury Roundup

Over the past year I've been slowing adding to my Charlotte Tilbury stash. Her products aren't super easy to find here (ordering through Nordstrom is really the easiest method) so I've been picking up things here and there - which is probably better for my bank account! However during our trip to LA we finally visited an actual counter and I couldn't resist adding a few new items to my collection. I was fairly well behaved and only picked up two pieces even though I wanted to do more damage. 

While there are plenty more items I want to add to my makeup bag, I feel like I've rounded up a pretty nice collection of her hits. 

The Filmstar Bronze & Glow - A cult classic is the perfect duo for every day contouring and a dramatic touch of highlight. The bronze portion is just that, a nice even (slightly warm) bronze shade. It's very easy to wear and perfect for adding an overall glow. The highlight is a gorgeous champagne shade that packs a serious punch - no glitter, just glow. 

The Dolce Vita Palette* - Probably my top choice for anyone looking to just buy one piece of Charlotte Tilbury makeup. The copper/glitter shade alone does it for me (and you can probably tell by the photograph that one has had the most use). The formula is fantastic, the warm tones neutral enough for day but can be amped up easily for nighttime, and they are long lasting as well.

Glastonberry Matte Revolution Lipstick - This has been on my list for absolutely ages and I finally snagged it in LA. After seeing Zoella sport it along with a few of my other favorite bloggers I knew I had to have it. The color is stunning, the formula (while matte) is super comfortable on the lips, and it's long lasting. The other thing I love is the shape of the tip - the angle makes for a super easy application even without liner.

Stoned Rose K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick* - From her original line that launched this neutral shade is an easy go-to for any look. The formula is creamy, easy to wear, and pairs perfectly with her Lip Cheat Liners.

Lip Cheat Liner Pillow Talk - Speaking of her Lip Cheat Liner...Charlotte created these to help even out your shape and enlarge your lips through over-lining them. The color range is beautiful and the liners work perfectly as an all-over product as well as just a pairing for with a lipstick. They are super creamy and easy to work with, but have staying power.

Color Chameleon Amber Haze (for brown eyes) - I love the idea of this product, a set of eye shadow pencils formulated with each eye color in mind. Each color gets a nighttime and a daytime shade. I went for the nighttime shade (because duh, all the drama) and couldn't be happier. I wear it during the day and during the night. The pencil format is also a favorite - it's super easy to work with and carry with you in your bag. The pigmentation is beautiful, the color range stunning, and the formula fantastic.

ps: For all my DC area girls...exciting news! Tyson's Corner Nordstrom currently has a pop-up Charlotte Tilbury counter and word on the street is that a permanent counter is coming in January. Get your bank accounts ready ;)
