Now I feel like we know each other well enough by now to not have to justify my love and obsession for Charlotte Tilbury. An item from her range features in pretty much every picture on my Instagram. It's all simply flawless and my most recent splurge is no exception.On a recent trip to Selfridges, I saw the amazing Sali Hughes use the Charlotte Tilbury Air Brush Flawless Finish Powder (£33) and I think I practically ran to the counter to pick one up. I of course picked up 1 Fair, the palest as always! We're still trying to decide whether I'm fully human or part ghost.
I have been craving the perfect setting powder for a while. Being an oily skinned gal is a right pain in the backside! If I don't set most of my foundations in the morning, I'll be looking like I've been swimming by lunch. However, I'm a complicated little soul and although I don't want all of my natural glow (sweat) to show through, I also don't want to look completely matte. You see my predicament? I find that this powder is just the right balance of mattifying the skin as well as letting the skin breath and have a natural glow. I love that I can top it up throughout the day without looking like a dry powdery mess. It glides across the skin beautifully to give a gorgeous soft focus finish. It's so finely milled that it's pretty much undetectable on the skin, it just leaves you looking flawless. I use my Charlotte Tilbury Powder and Sculpt Brush to apply it and they are a match made in heaven!
Like most of the products in the range, the powder also has skincare properties. It contains rose wax and almond oil which hydrates the skin and keeps it looking flawless throughout the day, no matter how many times you reapply.
Sound too good to be true? Trust me, it's definitely worth the splurge!
