What are these Charlotte Tilbury’s Beauty Icons?
Wonderglow is described by the brand as the instant soft focus beauty flash primer. It suppose to work wonders in smoothing and evening out complexion and preparing the skin for the full makeup application.
This product is made in Switzerland, fantastic!
I would describe this product as a light moisturising complexion enhancer with a slight floral scent to it. It gives a cooling feeling upon application and it has a very smooth, light and airy texture (almost whipped like). It is infused with light reflecting golden particles in MICRO sizes and these shimmery particles are barely visible to the naked eyes.
On my skin, it enhances my complexion and gives more radiant to it. I think it is one of the better primer in the market. This product helps with blending makeup product as well as helps to improve minor imperfections such as slightly blurring the fine lines under my eyes and my laugh lines.
Charlotte’s Magic Cream is described by the brand as an instant turnaround moisturiser. It is a light moisturiser and it does not leave any greasy residue once it’s absorbed well.
Is it an instant moisturiser as it claim? The answer will depend on the type of skin.
On my dry and sensitive skin, it is not moisturising enough. I have to apply extra moisturiser that is more rich and nourishing.
In this sense, this moisturiser does not work for me. It is an extra step for me to do with the time that I don’t have, especially in the morning that I expect my products to do what they are supposed to do in one application.
I think this moisturiser will work well with people with normal to slightly oily skin.
This product is also made in Switzerland.
Full Fat Lashes Mascara is described by the brand as a five-star mascara that gives curl, separation, length, volume and drama. This is not a waterproof mascara.
This mascara is made in Germany.
I think overall this is a nice mascara that enhances our natural lashes but I don’t see the dramatic effects that it suppose to give on my lashes. And as it is not a waterproof mascara, so unfortunately I don’t reach out to it as much as I wanted to.
K.I.S.S.I.N.G Fallen from the Lipstick Tree Lipstick is described by the brand as a moisturising lipstick that gives satin finish. It is free from paraben and ideal for everyday use as it also protects the lips from UV damage. It also gives a multi-dimensional finish and makes lips look full-bodied and luminous.
This product is made in Italy.
I really like this lipstick! What can I say, It is creamy and smooth in texture and it just glides on the lips. It feels moisturising and enhances the overall look of my lips. It also has a light vanilla scent to it, which I appreciate.
The shade included is Penelope Pink and it is a beautiful nude beige shade with a light rose-pink undertone. This lipstick is one of my favourite products in this boxed-set. Just beware that the size of this lipstick is very small, it can be described as a “charm” size or mini size.
The last item in this set is the popular Lip Cheat in the best-selling shade Pillow Talk. It is described by the brand as a perfect lipliner to reshape and resize the lips. It smooths over lines and improve texture of the lips. The Lip Cheat is a waterproof lipliner and supposedly lasts for up to six hours.
It is made in Germany.
No wonder that this Lip Cheat is included in the Beauty Icons and it is my favourite product in the set. I am glad that they included a full-sized Lip Cheat in this set. The colour is absolutely perfect for a natural look lips. It can be paired with many different types of lipsticks and variety of lipstick shades. It improves the overall look of my lips and feels light and not drying on my lips. It’s just what I’m looking for!
I have mixed feeling with this set as out of five products, only two are my favourites and worked well for me.
Ease of Application ♥♥♥♥♥
