First Impressions : Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation



Im not scared to admit that I’m a total Charlotte Tilbury Fangirl. I ABSOLUTELY adore her. She’s one of the most passionate people I’ve ever met when it comes to makeup and all things beauty and thats a really endearing quality in a person. I love her style and her look and I just… ah I LOVE HER. Im not even ashamed to admit that.

A few days ago Im opened some of my post and I couldn’t believe it when I saw the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation waiting for me. I'd heard so much about the stuff and it's been on my list of products to try for so so long. The Magic Foundation is a full coverage, demi matte and designed to cover everything from acne scarring, redness and discolouration. Sounds like the dream right? While I haven’t given it a full trial yet I thought I’d do a first impressions (which I actually recorded on camera in a vlog which I havent posted yet!). 

As a full coverage girl who has a lot of scarring from spots - I need a bit of extra coverage. I found this foundation to be build-able rather than instant full coverage. I tried the foundation it on a particularly bad skin day, I had a rather large duo of under the skin spots on my cheek as well as a nasty breakout along my jawline so I knew testing the coverage would be perfect.  On first buff it evened out my skintone and gave me decent glow covering the scarring and blurring my pores. I needed a good stipple on my problem areas to cover that and even then after a while it faded on the spotty areas. I felt like the foundation meshed with my skin well and blended in for a really seamless look without that mask like finish. While it felt a little tackier on the face than I’d like, it was nothing that a dusting of powder couldn't fix. The finish was really dreamy too, that lovely soft lit from within glow while also being pretty and matte. Longevity was a little hit and miss, I wore it on a day where it was pretty warm so I was a bit shiney throughout the day which again I had to powder.

Im going to keep using it and see how it goes, like I said I don’t hate it and have a good feeling about the product. I do think it’s nice but I think I need to figure out how to make it work on my blemishes or maybe exclusively use it on "good skin" days. I will do a proper review in time but I do think it's interesting to see what people think of first application. I know I've tried products for the first time and absolutely hated them but then tried them again and grew to love them! Believe it or not I used to actually HATE Laura Mercier Silk Creme and I now lament it's discontinuation!

  2. Love the photo to accompany your post. Have you tried the Estee Lauder Camouflage makeup? It can be a bit chalky on its own but mixed in with the Nars Sheer Glow it is a dream combination - sounds like we have a similar skin type. Gemma x

  6. I'm a fan girl too, definitely (and that's just based on her products). I have a whole bunch of her products, but I haven't yet tried any of her foundations or powders. This one sounds great for my skin at the moment while it's recovering from breakouts (aka, scarring), but I'd be interested to hear how you go with it moving forward.

    I've only ever heard amazing things either way and I do love a good glow!

    Why Laura Mercier discontinued their Silk Creme still dumbfounds me. Hmph.

  7. Nice! I'd love to get a bit of Charlotte Tilbury makeup through the post! ;)
    It looks lovely in the packaging et al but reading your first review, maybe it's not for me as I get the occasional pesky spot too. Can't wait to hear what you think about it after some time.

  12. Firstly, I adore the packaging! Dreamy.

    But I have heard people say similar things to you, that it's a lovely foundation but it just doesn't cover acne scars as well as it says it's meant to.
    I luckily don't have that problem, so I might give it a whirl.

  13. Wow, that's what I was searching for, what a stuff! I really like the way you describe. A good body lotion is an essential part of a good skincare regime. So i regularly use sakare's body lotions.

  33. I was so excited to try this foundation, but to be honest I really hoped fa a better coverage than it actually has. Armanis Luminous Silk Foundation covers my blemishes way better than this one :/ But I will try it again on a slightly better skin day, I really want to love it!

  39. As I have oily skin the tackiness was a bit too much for me, even with Rimmel's Stay Matte which is the best mattifying powder I used after 4/5 hours the foundation was sliding off my face which is such a shame as I love her other items! I hope she'll do a more matte foundation soon <3

  46. My ex husband and I have been divorced now for two years. He remarried one year ago. Last year him and I were still talking, he was engaged at the time and I didn't know. We were meeting each other at the park, talking, emailing, and went out to dinner one time. The entire time he told me I was the love of his life and that he didn't love this woman he is now married to. Of course my response to him was that he was also the love of my life as well. I was the one that asked for the divorce, and it was the biggest mistake of my life. This man is the only man I've ever truly loved and I am unable to love another man. When his fiance found out we were talking she broke all communication..Changed his phone number, deleted his email account etc. I've had no way of contacting him and I also have changed my number so he doesn't have anyway of contacting me either. I feel desperate, I feel like a crazy person because I can't stop these racing thoughts that control my life every single day. I just need to know how he feels. The very last time we talked he told me he could never love another woman again, and now he's married. What do I do? I cry myself to sleep every night. I can't listen to music, I'm afraid to go places for fear I'll see him with her. And when I do go to various places I think of him...Everything reminds me of us. I just want him back, he's my everything!! I love him so much!!!, i never wanted to check the internet for spell casters because i believed that they are all scam, but a child hood friend of mine told me to give it a try and contact a spell caster which i did, i contacted Chief Nwaluta Mallam Zack and was doubting his powers, because he assured me not to worry about anything that all will be well, he did the spell for me and now my ex husband is back in my life and our marriage is saved with the help of Chief Nwaluta, here is his email if you are going through cases like this { Nwalutaspelltemple@gmail.com }. Thank you chief i really appreciate.

  49. Did you know that there are many Cogniflex ways you can objective and change your inner beliefs and habits just approximately weight loss without paying outrageous fees to a physiologist? One of the best and easiest ways is through your creature mind. One particular method which is growing in popularity and getting sticking to of research to pro it taking place is the use of subliminal messages done via audio even though you nap.http://guidemesupplements.com/cogniflex-scam/

  50. My husband and I have been married for 7 years and together for 11. We have 3 children, ages 16 months, 4 and 6. He recently left me and moved in with the woman he has been seeing for only 2 months. We have been living with my parents for a few years because I have been going through school and he has been just working security. He went through the police academy and has been having a hard time getting a police job. He is also in the Army National Guard. He was deployed in Afgahnistan Jan. 2014 – May 2015. I really think he has ptsd and depression. For the last few months he has been very distant from me and the kids. He hasn’t been hanging out with friends or doing activities he would normally do on a regular basis. He would kept saying we need to fix things. He would say I do this wrong and that. It was like he was trying not to love me. One day he’d kiss me and showed affection, we were still having sex, then the next day nothing. I’ve been trying to get him to see a counciler but he won’t. He has admitted he has PTSD and other issues but then other days he says he doesn’t. He thinks this women he is with now is his soul mate. He met her online and lied saying he has been divorced for two years. She has found out he’s married and still wants to be with him. I don’t see it working out. I love my husband so much, I hate what he has done. I just wish he would get some help if it is because of PTSD and depression. Do you think it might be? I still want him back. I was totally devastated and confused until a old friend of mine told me about a spell caster on the internet Chief Nwaluta Mallam Zack who help people with the relationship and marriage problem by the powers of love spells, at first I doubted if such thing ever exists but decided to give it a try, when I contact him, he helped me cast a spell and within 48hours my husband came back to me and started apologizing, now he has stopped going out with that lady and he his with me for good and for real. i want You my friends who are passing through All this kind of love problem of getting Back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact him on this Email: { Nwalutaspelltemple@gmail.com } you can also contact him on his website http://nwalutaspelltemple.yolasite.com . Thanks you Chief , i will always be testifying about your good work.
