Hello My Lovelies,
I hope you are all doing well. I have been a little quiet over on the blog this week, with good reason I promise. If you follow me on Twitter (@SophiaMeola) then you will know that I started my new job this week. I had an amazing first week and I am very excited about working with the company and working on some exciting projects.
Firstly, welcome to my 300th post! As I never got round to writing up a 'What I got for Christmas' post I thought I would gradually go through and show you some of the lovely items I was lucky enough to receive this year. I have posted a few already over on my Instagram (@SophiaMeola) if you fancy stopping by and taking a peek. I thought I would start off with a Charlotte Tilbury post...this brand has grown to be one of my absolute favourites and I have to say I am a sucker for the gorgeous rose gold packaging! Before Christmas I had only ever tried the Dolce Vita Palette (review here) and the Film Star Bronze & Glow and now my collection has expanded quite considerably. I was lucky enough to be gifted a goodie box but also win a competition from Jane over at BritBeautyBlog. I have decided to cut my Charlotte Tilbury posts in two and today we are starting off with the goodies I receive for Christmas!
Safe to say I was extremely pleased with this Charlotte Tilbury goodie box that was underneath my Christmas tree this year. I have to admit this was not a complete and total surprise as I actually chose out all of the product when we had a family trip to London at the end of November. Either way I am very excited to play around and use these products more, bring you some full reviews and hopefully use them in some upcoming tutorials.
Firstly, we have the Luxury Palette in Fallen Angel. I first saw this palette when I first saw the Exclusive Supermodel Videobox make-up set on a selection of different social sites. I was so pleased to see that you could actually purchase it separately when I popped into Selfridges as it is literally such a gorgeous palette...I just want them all! Don't get me wrong, I would have loved to purchase the set myself but to be honest I couldn't really justify the £200 price tag. Never-the-less, I was actually lucky enough to win the set through a giveaway and I cannot wait to share it with you. This limited edition palette is the first Luxury Palette from the Charlotte Tilbury collection with a breakthrough formula for a wet and dry finish. You have the option to either use dry for a rich and buildable layer of colour, or with a dampen brush for three times the colour intensity and an irresistible liquid metal reflective finish. Fallen Angel is a gorgeous smokey eye palette which combines a perfect blend of pale golden pearl, antique silver, velvet black and a molten metallic bronze, plus the embossed star design is stunning. I have a love affair with my Dolce Vita Palette so I have full confidence that this little beauty will also be completely well loved.
Secondly, we have a K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Bitch Perfect. I must have tried on a good five lipsticks before eventually deciding on this little beauty. The K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick collection are part of Charlotte Tilbury's signature range of 11 lipsticks curated with modern and classic icons in mind. The collection is a capsule colour wardrobe of backstage nudes to red carpet reds made to suit any skin tone. The formula is enriched with a breakthrough, secret ingredient, the Lipstick Tree, an anti-oxidant that naturally protects lips from UV damage and external pollution leaving them cashmere soft and irresistible. Blended with special waxes and clever light-diffusing pigments for pert, full-bodied, ultra-brilliant lips that ensure you leave a lasting impression. Bitch Perfect (fabulous name) is a gorgeous pinky-nude that works amazingly with Pillow Talk Lip Cheat (see below). The formula is extremely impressive, a dream to apply and well pigmented - I think this will become a new favourite of mine.
Finally, but certainly not least we have the ever so famous Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk. I have the lovely Amelia Liana to thank for this glorious addition. Charlotte Tilbury calls her Lip Cheat lip liners her backstage secret weapon. Lip Cheat is a rich, velvety lip liner that glides effortlessly over the lips and has the power to completely re-shape, re-size and balance your lips. Some huge claims there but I cannot wait to experiment with it and bring you a full review really soon. This is the perfect pinky muted nude that looks beautiful worn alone or paired with a lipstick of lipgloss of your choice.
Now, I think we all need to take a moment to appreciate the exquisite rose gold packaging. If you are a regular reader of my blog then you will know my obsession with all things rose gold and I have to say Charlotte has really hit it on the nail...it is just so dazzling! Overall, I am completely in love with the brand and with the three new addition to my makeup collection. Charlotte can do no wrong haha! I hope you all enjoyed this post, I would love to know your thoughts on the products mentioned above and if you have any tips and tricks whilst using them. Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me on my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and I make sure to read every single comment…they really make my day!
What are your favourite Charlotte Tilbury products? Anything I should add to my wish list?
Lots of Love
