CHARLOTTE TILBURY HAUL



Can one go to Covent Garden and not go into Charlotte Tilbury?


Well if you are me, apparently the answer is no. I just can't help myself from being drawn into the little makeup boutique and getting lost in just how amazing all the make up is. Like seriously, how doesn't love the rose gold packaging, and how dreamy the palettes are? 

If you have read my latest post, 24 Hours in London, then you will know for my Mum's 50th Birthday she got her makeup down in Charlotte Tilbury. This for me meant an hour deciding what to pick up and deliberating over if I really needed a palette which is £49. The answer to that was yes, yes I do need that perfect bronzer and highlight that everyone raves about. 


Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Cheat | £16

This has got to be the product that was on the top of my wish list from Charlotte Tilbury, and for some reason I have always stopped myself from buying it. Maybe because I thought £16 was a bit too much for a lip liner. However, once the makeup artist put it on my lips, I was sold. I was also sold by the fact that my mum was also going to buy it for herself, and I really wanted it. Pillow Talk lip cheat is honestly dreamy. It is such a natural colour, and honestly my lipstick lasts longer while wearing the lip liner underneath. 




Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick | £24

I knew I wanted Pillow Talk lipstick. I knew if I was only going to buy one product that day, it would be the Pillow Talk lipstick. For me Pillow Talk is the ultimate lipstick colour for myself. It is a nudey pink and works so well on my lips. I have also been a fan of the Matte Revolution lipsticks from Charlotte Tilbury, so there really is no surprise that I am already falling for the dreamy Pillow Talk lipstick. 

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow | £49

Yes I craved and no I do not have any regrets about finally picking up the dreamiest of dreamiest face palettes. I feel like Filmstar Bronze & Glow has been raved about now for such a long time, but I just couldn't make myself spent £49 on a bronzer and highlight, and if I even thought about putting it on a Christmas wish list my mum would have gone crazy at the price. However, the make up artist in Charlotte Tilbury put this on my Mum's face and I knew I had to get it. It looked stunning. Then when I said I was interested, she put it on my face and I was completely sold. Now after using it for around a week I understand the hype. The bronzer actually stays on my face all day (and that included playing sport) and the highlight is just natural and stunning. 



Have you ever tried a product from Charlotte Tilbury?

24 HOURS IN LONDON

I have always loved London, and living just an hour and half by train from what some argue as 'the greatest city in the world', one can sometimes forget it is basically on my door stop compared to others. 

London for me has always been for day trips; whether that is a museum visit, to see a West End Show or see the sites. Funnily enough, that was what last weekend was all about. 

For my Mum's 50th Birthday, we decided to go up to London and see Mamma Mia and make the trip a bit extra special and stay in a hotel, instead of trying to rush back for the 11:18pm last train back to Clacton. While the Friday, was a bit of a stress in the morning (no trains in the morning because of a broken over head line, but the train we were on was the first running of the day), the afternoon comprised of eating cake, drinking prosecco in Charlotte Tilbury while my Mum got her make up done (and I spent 4 week worth of petrol) and having a meal at Smollenky's, before the 7:45pm performance of Mammia Mia. The Saturday, was spent wondering around Covent Garden, walking up to Oxford Street while my Dad moaned about he didn't want to go shopping, before catching the tube over to the V&A museum (which was kinda a let down). While the afternoon was spent looking around the James Bond museum, just off of Covent Garden, before catching the train back to Clacton.
