I received this beauty of a box for Christmas after lusting after it for so long and I was overjoyed when I unwrapped it on Christmas Day. The contents include products that I adore and I can’t wait to share my thoughts with you!
Charlotte Tilbury has been one of my favourite beauty brands for so many years now, and with the luxury packaging, stunning products and the rose gold finish, it’s not hard to see why.
The breathtaking set contains five of CT’s most coveted products; a full size Lip Cheat lip liner in ‘Pillow Talk’, a miniature K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick in ‘Penelope Pink’, a mini full fat lashes mascara, a mini Charlotte’s Magic Cream and the widely coveted mini version of the Wonder Glow face primer.
I was thrilled with the selection of products, having tried some sample sizes of the magic cream and the Wonder Glow primer before, as well as being a long time fan of the CT lipsticks; I couldn’t wait to give the products a whirl.
The Magic Cream is a highly indulgent moisturiser that I truly believe would work on any skin type. It’s the perfect sample size product for those wanting to try it out before they splurge out on a full size tub. The cream itself is thick and creamy and it instantly gives any lacklustre complexion a boost. It’s not necessarily a cream that I’d choose to use every single day, especially because of the pretty hefty price tag, but it’s ideal for using on days when your skin could use a little uplifting.
The Wonderglow beauty primer gives my entire face a radiant glow while completely smoothing out my complexion, giving it a flawless base for applying my makeup. It’s perfect for adding a bit of a pick-me-up to any tired and dull complexion. It works well under any foundation to create a flawless look; I’m honestly in love with this baby.
Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks are my all-time favourite lipsticks to use as they’re always so highly pigmented and long-lasting and Penelope Pink is no different. It’s a beautiful nude colour with gorgeous pink undertones and it’s truly lovely to wear. I don’t find it drying in the slightest and the colour suits me really well despite my slightly washed out complexion! It’s the ideal lipstick if you’re not quite brave enough to invest in a bolder shade from the CT collection.
Yet another widely loved product featured in the Beauty Icons giftset is the Lip Cheat lip liner in ‘Pillow Talk’. Its velvety rich formula is gorgeous to use and it’s lush when used either alone or underneath another lipstick. Naturally, it works incredible when used with the beloved Pillow Talk lipstick and I know that it’s going to last me a long time as a little bit really does go a long way.
The full fat lashes mascara is a product that I’ve never really considered purchasin as I tend to stick to what I know when it comes to mascara. However, I have to say that this beauty is now a definite staple in my makeup collection. It claims to be a 5-in-1 mascara, offering to curl, separate, create volume, length and drama! I love the shape of the wand and the bristles are in no way harsh whatsoever; it really is a delightful mascara to use.
