Charlotte Tilbury at Selfridges Trafford Centre
Last month saw the power house of Charlotte Tilbury introduced to the Selfridges Beauty Hall at the Trafford Centre Manchester and I went for a nosey at the new stand and to have my makeup done. You should all know by now i'm a huge fan of the brand and a total fan girl of Charlotte herself so I was really keen for someone trained in the art of Tilbury apply my favourite products to see the result.
I was my boring old self and chose the 'Golden Goddess' look because it's the look I always aim for when applying my makeup and I thought if someone actually showed me how I might achieve it one of these days. I loved the result and to say I was glowing was an understatement, the combination of the Wonder Glow Skin Illuminator (Link) as a primer, the Light Wonder Foundation (Link) and Film Star Bronze and Glow Palette (Link) had my skin more glowing than the love child of J-Lo and Kim Kardashian. I hadn't tried a base product from the line before (apart from the Bronze & Glow Palette) and I was as impressed by these as I expected to be as nothing has disappointed me from the brand before and they didn't fall short.
She used the Golden Goddess palette on my eyes which i've already reviewed (Link) and it may be strange to some to choose a palette that I'm already so familiar with but like I said she was applying as Charlotte intends not just my regular plonk it on and go mentality and I'm pleased to say she gave me new ways to use the shades and also how to use the glitter shade which I've barely touched to be honest.
On my lips I was tempted to ask for the new Matte Revolution shade 1975 from the Norman Parkinson collection (Link) which of course is a to-die for orangey red (which I MUST own) but I went for a colour that isn't a usual choice for me which is Stoned Rose (Link) a really natural rosy nude without being too nude. It is the perfect day time shade to wear and oh my god the Lip Lustre in Ibiza Nights (Link) is the most sparkly gorgeous lip gloss/lacquer i've ever tried, my lips looked so plump when it was on and it lasted through a pad thai so great for everyday use. This combo was lovely on and I probably wouldn't have ever chosen it for myself.
If you're near the Trafford Centre Selfridges pop in to see the girls, they're so lovely and they have some skills I can tell you! You can't miss the new stand as it's slap bang front and centre where all Charlotte Tilbuy stands should be and I was told the products are flying off the shelves but I wish the every day women would leave us Bloggers some to buy because my shopping list has tripled after my visit and the new Magic Foundation to launch soon will definitely get me paying another visit because it sounds like it could be 'The One'
Have you tried any Charlotte Tilbury? What have you thought?
