Christmas Gift Ideas With Charlotte Tilbury

Monday, December 18, 2017

Charlotte Tilbury is one of my favourite makeup/beauty brands, I have quite a few items in my collection already but I also have a wish list as long as my arm. Today I am going to share with you some products from Charlotte Tilbury that I think would make lovely Christmas gifts and things I would be very happy to receive on the big day. I also have a Charlotte Tilbury skincare post coming up where I share my thoughts on some of her skincare products, so if you're interested in that it will be coming soon. 

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette - £60.00

The Instant Eye Palette contains 12 eyeshadows which are separated into 4 looks, the day look, desk look, date look and disco look and each look contains 3 shadows, one to prime, one to enhance and one to smoke. Charlotte describes this palette as a palette for all seasons and all occasions.  The palette is limited edition and the shadows are a new pressed formula that are designed for less fallout and more control. 

The palette is stunning and although the looks are separated, you obviously don't need to use the palette like that, you can use it anyway you want to but it is handy to have the looks especially if you're like me and not the best at knowing what shade to put with what. There is also a large mirror the length of the palette which is handy to have too. The looks are printed on the bottom of the palette under the shadows to show which shades are which look and the palette comes with a piece of acetate explaining that too, as shown in the photograph above. 

The Day Eye

The Day Look - for a fresh, natural eye makeup look, with a delicate matte cream, shimmering neutral brown & taupe matte perfection.

The Desk Eye

The Desk Look - with pink champagne, chocolate brown & caramel shades, this smokey eye is the perfect power of makeup look for work.

The Date Eye

The Date Look - has sultry, shimmering mauve-cocoa and chocolate shades for the ultimate smokey, soft and dreamt eye makeup.

The Disco Eye

The Disco Look - is the go-to party eye! Indulge with black and emollient-rich molten gold for a dramatic rock chick look.

The Instant Eye Palette is stunning and all the shades are beautiful, they apply well and blend beautifully, there is a little fallout but nothing too much and not enough to put me off using the palette. If you would like to buy the palette, you can find it on the Charlotte Tilbury website priced at £60.00

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips - £24.00

The Hollywood Lips in Platinum Blonde is a peachy/nude shade with a matte finish, it is more peach than nude and a lovely shade to wear all year round. The liquid lipstick is said to have anti-ageing ingredients and feel like a second skin, with a weightless feel that glides on like a gloss. It contains ingredients such as anti-ageing sea lavender, hyaluronic acid & collagen boosting actives which slow down signs of ageing for smooth, plump lips and beeswax to protect the lips against drying out and providing nourishment. 

The Hollywood Lips liquid lipstick applies well, it comes with a doe foot applicator and is opaque in one swipe, the formula feels nice on the lips and isn't drying. I have found the wear time to differ between the shades of the Hollywood Lips, but this one lasts around 6 hours on me before I need to top up, but some of the brighter and darker shades last all day, but the wear time is good and they wear away nicely too. You can find Platinum Blonde and the other shades available on the Charlotte Tilbury website priced at £24.00.

The Dolce Vita Luxury Eyeshadow Palette

The Dolce Vita eyeshadow palette is stunning, with a quartet of eyeshadows in shades of russet reds, earthy browns & shimmering gold tones, the Dolce Vita eyeshadow palette is beautiful and I have created some beautiful looks with it, all the shades are stunning, the top right shade is perfect for a one shade look, applied all over the lid and blended out with a little under the lower lash line and some mascara, it's a super easy look but looks amazing, I have also used all 4 shades to create a warm toned smokey eye and using the golden shade in the bottom left as a touch of sparkle, that shade is best applied with your finger for best results. It really is a gorgeous palette and one I am pleased to have in my collection. 

K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick - Penelope Pink

The Penelope Pink lipstick is a lovely nude/beige coloured lipstick which is perfect for everyday wear, it feels comfortable on the lips and lasts well. It compliments the eyeshadows perfectly.

The Feline Flick - Panther

The Feline Flick is a pen style black eyeliner, the nib of the liner is great for creating a precise line and the liner is easy to apply, even for complete novices like me. It lasts well all day and is easy to remove too.
Lip Cheat Lip Liner - Pillow Talk

I love this lip liner and it is my most worn lip liner in my collection, I already have this so it's nice to have a backup. Pillow talk is the perfect pink toned nude and looks great alone all over the lid or with your favourite nude lipstick. 
The Full Fat Lashes Mascara

The Full Fat Lashes mascara is a lovely mascara that fans my lashes out nicely, gives them length and volume and wears well throughout the day, it doesn't smudge or flake and looks lovely and gives me length and volume in my otherwise really pathetic lashes. 
Lip Lustre - Seduction

The Lip Lustre in the shade Seduction is a gorgeous nude shade, I'm not usually one for lip gloss but this doesn't feel sticky or tacky on my lips and is nicely pigmented, so much so I can wear it alone, it is so pretty and I am definitely going to get more shades. 
Cheek To Chic Blusher - Ecstacy

The Cheek To Chic Blusher in Ecstasy is a real Zoë shade, and if you know me well you'll know what I mean. I adore coral blush, lips and nail colours and this blush is perfect for me, it has got some shimmer to it and usually I prefer a matte blush but this is so pretty and it isn't too shimmery, it just gives the right amount of glow and is beautiful. 
I love all the products in this gift set, and if you were to buy the products separately they would come to £185.50 so you are saving £20.50 buying the gift set. If the gift set is above budget for a gift for one person it can also be broken down and given as several gifts as there are 7 products in a stunning double sided makeup bag, so it could be given to 8 separate people or some products put together and split between others, and there is a saving buying it all together, so worth thinking about if you have a few people to buy for who would love the products included.  
All the products included in this gift guide can be found on the Charlotte Tilbury website and to find the individual items, click on the price I have linked above next to the items.
