I don't think I have every been as excited in my whole life about the launch of a makeup range.
Charlotte Tilbury is a world renowned makeup artist - her work has graced the covers of Vogue,Vanity Fair & W just to name a few,
she counts top models & celebrities from across the globe as clients and has created makeup looks for top designers such as
Burberry &Tom Ford.
Ms Tilbury very kindly used her years of knowledge and experience to created a range of cosmetics which launched last year
but it only arrived on our lovely green shores at the end
of August this year. I however didn't just want to order
from the website - I wanted to be able to touch, test and smell
all the amazing products. So I had to wait until yesterday to finally get to Brown Thomas in Dublin.
And let me tell you it was sooooooo worth the wait.
It was VERY difficult to not buy one of everything. But I had just come from the Irish Beauty Show & Lush where I had done a serious amount of damage to the poor Visa card.
My first choice was an easy one though.
I had use the WonderGlow as a primer for a recent bridal makeup and I was SO impressed with it. The girls skin literately just shone.
So that was the first thing in my basket. It can be used under makeup as a primer, over makeup as a highlight or simply on its own to give a beautiful glow to the skin. Charlotte herself uses it as "Bedroom Makeup". She is never without makeup even in bed so uses this at night.
I would say the most talked about product from the whole range is her Filmstar Bronze & Glow palette. She says "This is a secret that silver screen sirens have kept to themselves for years - and now I am going to share it with you". Firstly can I just say the packaging on this is GORGEOUS!!!.
This is simply a contour & highlight palette but it comes in the most beautiful rose gold case and just screams glamour.
The sculpt powder is a lovely warm bronze with a soft satiny shimmer glow. It is the perfect shade for contouring as it doesn't leave the skin ashy looking or too umpa lumpa orange.
The highlight is a gorgeous pale champagne colour. It isn't overly glittery/shimmery and simply leaves the most beautiful golden sheen on my skin. This will definitely be in my kit from now on.
Any my final purchase was the Colour Chameleon is Amber Haze. These can be used in so many ways - as a base for eye shadow to add depth, on there own as a quick simple shadow or as a liner. If you want to make your eye colour pop then these pencils make it fool proof. They use the "laws of contrasting colours and light flex technology so you can literally transform and enhance your natural eye colour". I actually chose Amber Haze which is meant for brown eyes but I just loved the colour and think it will look great with my hair colouring.
WonderGlow 40ml - € 49
Filmstar Bronze & Glow €65
Colour Chameleon - €25
You can buy the Charlotte Tilbury range in Brown Thomas Dublin, on their website (http://www.brownthomas.ie).
It is a luxury makeup range but I am totally addicted already.
What do you think? Would you spend €65 on a contour palette?

Until next time...Be Happy!
