The Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Filters Collection

charlotte tilbury beauty filters

When it comes to all things beauty related there truly is only one brand with which I cannot contain my excitement for when it comes to new releases, limited editions and online exclusives. You might have already guessed it, especially if you've just clicked onto this blog post or read my blog before but without a doubt it's the wonderful Charlotte Tilbury.

And Charlotte has just launched part of her brand new and limited edition Beauty Filters collection*, with more to follow in the upcoming weeks/month and I'm so excited to share some of the products with you, along with a few sneak peeks of the ones that will be released soon.

So let's get right into it, here is Charlotte's new and limited edition Beauty Filters collection;

First up we have the original Filter release, which actually launched about a month before the new Beauty Filters collection and that is Hollywood Flawless Filter. This is honestly one of the best and most unique beauty releases that I've ever tried or owned. You can use it as a primer to give you a super glowy and fabulous base, mixed in with your foundation to brighten it up, which will look particularly gorgeous in the warmer months or you can use it as highlighter. I've even been wearing it as a base on it's own along with my concealer on those days when I'm looking for that 'no makeup' makeup look and I love the fact that the lightest shade, Fair, really does blend in with my rather ghostly skin tone. As you'll have seen me say before, particularly in my The Best Foundations For Someone Who Hates Wearing Foundation blog post, nobody caters for me and my freckly fair complexion quite like Charlotte!

Unlike the rest of the Beauty Filters collection, Hollywood Flawless Filter is a permanent addition to Charlotte's line and is available in seven different shades.

Charlotte classes this as a complexion booster and I would completely agree with that statement. It gives you Charlotte's famous 'lit from within' look without looking too shiny or in any way, oily. It's also not glittery or chunky like many other highlighting and brightening products on the market and it just blends in so seamlessly!

If you buy one product from today's blog post, I would definitely make it this one!

Well, now that I actually think about it, you pretty much need this palette in your makeup bag/life too!

Without a shadow of a doubt (pun totally intended), my favourite eyeshadow palette of all time is the Charlotte Tilbury Dreamy Look palette (as seen here). However, the fact that it was a limited edition release has had me rationing it and saving it for special occassions. I'm so happy to add another one of Charlotte's eyeshadow quads to my collection.

I mean, honestly, this eyeshadow quad is quite easily the prettiest and most wow-worthy palette that I've ever seen. I'm honestly obsessed with this palette so much so that I might need to pick up a backup just so I don't feel the need to ration this one quite like I do the Dreamy Look palette. The shades perfectly compliment one another and blend beautifully and just make my blue eyes pop!

In addition to this Bigger Brighter Eyes Exagger-eyes palette, Charlotte has also released the stunning Bigger Brighter Eyes Transform-eyes palette which has the most beautiful brick red and coppery gold shades in it. That one might be on my list of palettes to buy next...

charlotte tilbury legendary lashes volume 2 review

There's only ever been one product that I've tried from Charlotte Tilbury that I've not liked and that was the original Legendary Lashes Mascara. Now it was in no way the worst mascara that I'd ever tried but compared to her other flawlessly perfect products, I was left disappointed. My main complaint was the fact that my lashes looked fabulous immediately after the mascara was applied but as the day progressed, the formula would inevitably transfer onto my under eye area, leaving me with black smudges all over my cheeks.

I have a feeling that I wasn't the only one who experienced this as Charlotte has released a reformulated version of the original Legendary Lashes Mascara and I am very happy to report that all my prayers have been answered when it comes to this golden tube of goodness. What I loved about the original, the fluttery long lashes that it creates with no clumps, is what you'll find in Volume 2 but now it simply does not budge! I put this to the test on what was officially the warmest day of 2018 and there was no smudging at all. There's also no crispiness to the lashes, even if you apply several coats and it doesn't irritate my sensitive, often teary looking, eyes at all. Now I have another reason to love Charlotte; she listens to customer feedback and actually makes changes for the better!

Now I've also got a little sneak peek of two of the upcoming releases, which will be launching in the next couple of weeks.

First up we have a release that I certainly wasn't expecting to become as enamoured with as I have and that is the Collagen Lip Bath.

Charlotte's lip products are some of my favourite on the market right now so this tube of gloss definitely had some big boots to fill and that's exactly what it did.

It's not your typical lipgloss that leaves your lips and you in general a sticky mess and as a result it lasts a lot longer too. It's a subtler tingle than other lip plumping products that I've tried in the past which I certainly appreciate. Nobody really wants their lips to feel numb or in pain after applying a plumping product! It also adds a beautiful sheen to the lips.

You can apply this on top of your lipstick, with it transforming matte shades in such a nice way. For a more natural everyday look you can wear it on it's own or with a little bit of lip liner to give your lips that pillowy effect we all lust after.

The applicator is also so adorable and essentially a work of art in itself.

And last but not least we have two, or three if you count the accompanying brush, blush and complexion products. Coming in two colourways; this one and a deeper, sultrier colourway, the Pretty Youth Glow Filter is a great cheek duo to check out.

I adore the cream to powder formula of this and the fact that it doesn't feel sticky or greasy like many other cream blushers do. It's soft and beautifully blendable. I can't wait to see how this performs in the Summer months especially.

From what I've seen, the Cheek Hug brush that I was mentioning above, will allow you to apply the shades seamlessly and in one easy sweep. Why no one has created a brush that hugs the cheek until now I will never know because blush is something that I struggle to apply without going too far or not far enough. It's safe to say that I'm keen to try this out once it officially launches.

So there you have it, Charlotte's new Beautiful Filters collection. What do you think?

Be sure to keep an eye on Charlotte's website where the new products will be launching first as well as at CT counters in June.
