With Charlotte Tilbury dropping new launches as quickly as Tarte, Too Faced and Make Up Revolution, it can be really hard for us beauty junkies to keep up. I have been purchasing some of the recent new launches on your behalf so that you can take the time to really think about what your make up collection is missing.
As a luxury brand Charlotte Tilbury can be very expensive and I realise that the FOMO with this brand is real. I am not on the PR list but am a huge Charlotte Tilbury fan and am always purchasing new items from her. Some have become my all time favourites – Pillow Talk Lipstick and Lip Cheat, Exaggereyes Palette HERE, and others have been a bit of a let down – Iconic Palette HERE so I hope to bring you all of the information in a concise and honest way.
Glowgasm (Lightgasm) Face Palette – Charlotte Tilbury has suddenly fallen into the play-on-words-with-makeup-glow category but don’t let that put you off. Glowgasm Face palette is as dreamy to wear as it is to look at. At £60, this Limited Edition Palette is a considered purchase, BUT, if you love Charlotte Tilbury as a brand as much as i do, or are as much of a make up junkie as i am , this is one that is worth saving for.
Firstly, the outer packing is just beautiful and oh-so Instagram worthy, the box, is beautiful then the actual outside of the compact is really something special to look at. The gold tone casing, with the white, pink, purple and glowy hues make your mouth water before you have even opened it. When you do, boom! You become lovestruck. The colours, the embossing, the huge mirror, this palette is an absolute JOY!
Containing four shades that can be used on the face, eyes, cheeks and as a highlight, this multi-purpose palette will soon become your best friend. Now, i have chosen the LIGHTGASM Palette to suit my light/medium skin tone and i find the shades work wonderfully on me. However, if you have a more olive, or deeper darker complexion or just prefer your colours darker then the LOVEGASM would be the one to go for. From the get-go you will not want to dip your brush into the beautiful embossing and just leave it on your dressing table to stare at, but once you get past that stage…..dip you must!
LIGHT IT: a soft champagne to highlight and illuminate your features.
GLOW IT: layer your level of illuminating glow.
POP IT: a youthful rosy blush to illuminate your skin.
BRONZE IT: a neutral cocoa to tone, sculpt and define contours.
Every colour just pops on the skin adding that gorgeously youthful Prisma highlight and multi glow. The bronzer glides on like a dream and adds that lovely sun kissed look to the skin, the highlight pops on the cheekbones and the browbones, the blusher adds a wonderful light to the cheeks that really lifts them up, but also looks beautiful on the eyelids and the glow adds a layer of light glow anywhere you want it over your face. A great palette to really play with on your shoulders and decolette and really have some fun with. I think it is absolutely beautiful and if you love a glow to your skin i can highly recommend it.

If you still want something to add a beautiful glow to your skin but don’t want to go for a full on glow palette, then Charlotte has you covered. The new Beauty Light wand in a range of three shades PeachGasm, Pinkgasm, and GoldGasm, are a must have! If you remember the Laura Geller Cusion Top Highlighters i reviewed a couple of years ago, and are familiar with a cusion top, then these are very similar.
The tube contains 12ml of product and has a cushion top pad, which, when you gently squeeze the tube, allows the product to saturate it and you can apply this to the top of your cheeks bones. You really only need a small amount of this for a fabulously lit peachy glow. It dries immediately without any stickiness and yet the skin will have that dewy look all day long, I also love how just a touch of this highlighter is able to shed a light across the whole face and gently illuminate it.
I adore a liquid highlighter like this and find that it suits all skin types and ages as it is very flattering. If applying over foundation, please note the cushion top may become a little grubby but I like to dab it onto my fingers first and then blend onto my face. I also like to dot the tinest amount onto my eyelid and sometimes the inner corner of my eyes to really make them pop. The beauty light wand is a very versatile product that is easy to travel with and really does last a long time! I love the peach for Summer days and Sunshine. Available HERE
