Charlotte Tilbury Mini Miracle Eye Wand

I wrote about Christmas and her Magic Foundation straight away, but I wanted to really take my time with the Mini Miracle Eye Wand and ensure that it was amazing before I wrote about it.

I’ve taken my time. It’s amazing.

Let’s start with the fact that Charlotte’s wand is a world first in that it has a brush on two ends. Step 1 contains a Hydrating and Lifting Eye Cream, and Step 2 the Illuminate Under-Eye Light Reflector (concealer). Both are released with a quick twist and click, then applied using their respective brushes. As with all of her products it’s just so quick and easy. You don’t even need to pat anything in with your finger, let alone carry an additional brush.

Here’s how it works…

Step 1: Hydrating and Lifting Eye Cream

  • Can be used twice per day
  • Contains hyaluronic acid, plumping the skin and great for keeping skin hydrated therefore no drying, clumpy concealer
  • Bio Extract of Salicornia to reduce loss of water, again keeping everything fresh and dewy
  • Acanthium promotes cellular repair
  • Cyclodextrins to lift the eye dome
  • Rice Proteins to reduce bags, fighting ageing and fatigue

What’s great about this cream is that it slightly tightens when you apply it, really firming the eye area and keeping everything in place. It’s a bit like a pair of spanx for the eyes. If you haven’t had a lot of sleep, this helps to sculpt you back to normality.

Step 2: Illuminate Under-Eye Light Reflector 

I really, really get on well with this. Sometimes I find that concealers with lots of coverage are heavy and ageing, but lighter concealers don’t do enough to colour correct. This strikes a perfect balance of the two, offering instant colour correction and evening out the skin tone but with a light, dewy consistency.

  • “A million lights” light-reflecting micro-particles to diffuse light
  • Mother of Pearl to add radiance
  • Polypeptides to minimise dark circles over time
  • Silky elastomers to smooth over wrinkles

Charlotte describes this as part of her ‘treat and transform’ range of skincare and make-up hybrids, designed to ease the appearance of fatigued eyes over time and brighten them instantly.

If you’re yet to find a concealer to take away bags without sitting in your lines, look no further. This is it.

Charlotte’s Mini Miracle Eye Wand is available in 5 shades and will be £29 available from October.

The Tilbury Trinkets

NEW Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise, £29 
This little sets contain a single eyeshadow and a matching brand new Rock ‘n’ Kohl liner and are simply genius. Charlotte has merged the classic smoky eye concept with a bit of Christmas sparkle to make the perfect shadow. When applied the eyes are smoky and intensified but on hitting the light they reflect a high shimmer finish, giving a 3D effect. These are the perfect alternative to glitter because you get all of the shimmer with none of the drop down. Here are the four shades:

  • On the Prowl with Supernova liner – plum and aubergine
  • Midnight Seduction with Sapphire Sex liner – a deep midnight blue
  • Silver Leopard with Black Magic liner – gunmetal grey and petrol
  • The Huntress with Amber Moon liner – a deep golden bronze and amber

NEW The Gift of Goddess Skin Travel Kit, £39 
Perhaps my favourite item in the bunch, this kit is absolutely perfect for anyone who wants to try some of Charlotte’s classics before committing to the full size purchases. I know it’s Charlotte’s Magic Cream that gets all of the praise but for me it is ALL about the Wonderglow and the two together are just heaven.

  • Goddess Skin Clay Mask 15ml
  • Magic Cream 15ml
  • Wonderglow 15ml

Charlotte Tilbury The Gift of Goddess Skin

NEW The Gift of Red Carpet Skin Travel Kit, £59 
Charlotte told us that she always gets asked what she has used on celebrities and so this kit was designed to give everything you need for that amazing red carpet glamour in one hit. At £59 the value is just brilliant. I think that these sets are going to fly because they offer the opportunity to try some of Charlotte’s best loved products for a fraction of the price tag.

  • Magic Cream 15ml
  • Wonderglow 15ml
  • Goddess Skin Clay Mask 15ml
  • Supermodel Body 15ml (I use this every single night out!)

NEW Limited Edition Make-up Bag, £32 
A crimson and rose gold set of kisses, this would be the perfect add-on to whichever make-up items you end up gifting your loved ones. It’s roomier than the original lip make-up bags if you had one of those and the soft structure is designed to be easily pulled apart and opened so that you can see all of your make-up in one go. Can we talk about the zip? It’s a lipstick. There are no words for the cuteness!

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND Bar of Gold, £32 
Oh my gosh! Do you remember when Charlotte Tilbury first launched and she had the Bar of Gold highlighter? I saw it everywhere and never got one, and before I knew it they’d gone. Now she’s bringing it back and everyone who missed out the first time can finally have it this Christmas. The shade is more golden than the original Filmstar Bronze and Glow illuminator so it’s different enough to justify for someone who already has that. This is one of the star picks from the range without a doubt.

The Tilbury Treats

The Perfect Pink Kiss, £49 
A classic pink trio, this contains Lip Cheat in Pink Venus, K.I.S.S.I.N.G in Coachella Coral and Lip Lustre in Portobello Girl.

6 Shades of Love, £49
A simple duo, Charlotte has created ideal combinations of blusher and lipstick that match and will add a complimentary travel sized Wonderglow to finish the set. This contains a Cheek to Chic Blusher with the counterpart K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick.

Instant Filmstar Killer Cheekbones, £82 
Charlotte’s Filmstar Bronze and Glow along with the tapered Powder and Sculpt brush are two things that I use without fail every day. By Christmas there will be two shades of her compact available (for lighter and darker skin tones) and you can get both in this set along with a complimentary mini Magic Cream. It works out cheaper than buying both individually.

NEW Colour Chameleon Gift Box, £90 exclusive to charlottetilbury.com 
The Colour Chameleon pencils are SO brilliant because they literally make a smoky eye in one minute flat. You simply apply the pencil, buff out the edges with your finger and you’re done. For Christmas she’s created 5 new shades and put them into a gorgeous box with a sharpener. Here are the new shades…

  • Bewitching Black – a matte black for use alone or under your favourite shades to add intensity. This was made as a direct result of customer feedback and demand!
  • Enchanting Indigo for brown eyes
  • Mesmerising Mink for blue eyes (although I think everyone will love this)
  • Intoxicating Violet for hazel eyes
  • Gold Digger for green eyes

The Complete Brush Kit, £240
I must admit that Charlotte’s brushes are fantastic and I use lots of them in my daily regime. She has simplified everything to be concise and straightforward for everyday make-up and yet they still feel luxury with their soft bristles and rose gold accents. Treat anyone to these and I guarantee they’ll use them every day.

You won’t go wrong with anything from the collection, but if I were you I’d be sure to add the Bar of Gold, The Gift of Goddess Skin  and Book of Make-up Magic to the top of your list.

Charlotte Tilbury’s Christmas collection wil be available in store and online from November 2015.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation

Having the quality time with Charlotte was so inspiring. When you hear her speak you realise why her brand is taking over the world the way that it is – she loves women and she genuinely just wants every woman to look the best possible version of themselves. It’s that simple and yet she makes it so utterly quick, fun and glamorous.

Me and Charlotte Tilbury

First on the agenda was an insight into her brand new, upcoming Magic Foundation. Charlotte told us that this product has been 5 years in the making, since before she even had investment into her brand.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation 2

 

Her inspiration was the fact that she had never quite found the perfect full coverage foundation and frankly needed it in her kit. She recalled shoots in which she would mix a little bit of everything to make her perfect full base and said that one of two things would happen. Either the full coverage finish would start to cake and dry out as the day went on, needing constant retouching, or the photos would look beautiful but the model in the flesh would have 6 inches of make-up on. These factors in mind, she began working with both skincare and make-up labs to create a formula that delivered a hydrating, full coverage finish and something to give that retouched finish to the everyday girl.

Now that she has it, she says, “I feel like I’ve given birth!”

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation 1

Charlotte’s Magic Foundation is what she describes as a “new generation” hybrid of anti-ageing, full coverage foundation. What she said of existing full coverage foundations seemed true to me too; she finds that they can feel heavy, be drying, pull on the skin and definitely age the skin. Hers is a weightless, easy to buff formula that will flatter every age, skintone and skin concern. And she’s so confident in how great it is that her campaign images are before and after shots, completely unretouched.

Here’s what it covers and treats…

  • Acne and Acne Scarring: minimises the production of sebum after 9 weeks
  • Redness, Rosacea, Discoloration and Melasma: reduces production of melanocytes over tiem
  • Mature skin: smoothes appearances of wrinkles in 1 hour and age spots reduced by 75%

And here’s what’s in it…

  • Laricyl, a concentrated mushroom extract. Charlotte was laughing that this didn’t sound very glamorous but in French medical legend it was sought after as an elixir for longer life. It firms, tightens pores and hydrates the skin.
  • Hyaluronic Filling Spheres to ensure that moisture is retained and the base stays hydrated all day, thus no drying or caking.
  • Vitamin C (VC-IP) for anti-oxidant properties, great for those of us working in the city.
  • An SPF 15.

For best application of Magic Foundation, Charlotte is releasing a brand new Magic Complexion Brush. You can also see her brand new Mini Miracle Eye Wand in this photo, but I’ll tell you about that in my next post…

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Wand

This sits somewhere between the Tom Ford Cream Foundation Brush and the Real Techniques Buffing Brush, both of which I love. What this does is buffs the foundation into the skin, giving a flawless, air-brushed finish. Charlotte says this will work especially well for women with acne or rosacea because it won’t force foundation into the pores. It’s ridiculously soft and doesn’t pull or wipe products across the skin. This is coming out in September also and comes in at £45.

Personally I just think that what Charlotte does so well is listens to the women that use her make-up. I know from working on the shop floor that women love her Light Wonder foundation (which is also lovely for a fresh, dewy complexion) but that lots of women need to team it with added Retoucher (her concealer) to get a fuller coverage finish. I don’t know another brand that acts on feedback quite so personally, on a complete level and with no other motive but to help the women who love it.

I’ll show you my before and after on Instagram very soon!

Charlotte’s Magic Foundation will be available this September at £29.50.
