T h e   h i s t o r y

Charlotte Tilbury cosmetics and skincare launched in Selfridges in 2013 and became its biggest beauty launch, since then they have expanded to multiple department stores, its own flagship store and are currently sold in 37 countries. The company was founded by Charlotte herself whom was born in London in 1973, before launching her brand Charlotte was a makeup artist and even started her own Youtube channel in 2012, which now has over 400,000 subscribers.


Charlotte Tiblury products make for perfect gifts as their products can be utilised by all ages, they also have  sets which contain multiple smaller sized products that are great for someone who maybe is just starting to dip their toe, so to speak, into the big wide makeup world, or even the other end of the scale, perfect for someone who you know loves makeup.

B e a u t y  i c o n s

This is described as a collection of Charlottes best selling, award winning products.

Now this is exactly  the type of product I would buy for my friends and family that are interested in makeup, it includes 5 products, of which 1 is full-sized and 3 are what I would class as deluxe samples and retails for £55, which is not bad considering that it comes already gorgeously presented in a purple and copper box. Over all this box is worth £69.
in the box you receive,

Full Fat Lashes mascara, (3,04ml):  I think a mascara is such a personal preference, so its a pain buying full sized ones ( which have shot up in price the last few years) and then not liking it, with this box it again gives you the chance to have a good while testing it. The mascara is again quite subtle if applied lightly so perfect for those not too confidant, but it can also be built upon to create beautiful fluttery lashes. The full size of this product is 8ml and sells for £23, making this worth around £9

Charlottes Magic Cream, (15ml): This is probably my favourite thing in this box as its such a splurge for the full-size that i personally wouldn't like to spend on myself without knowing I loved it first, the amount of product in this box means you can realistically try it for a while before you make the final decition. The full size of this product is 50ml and sells for £70, making this worth around £21

Wonder glow face primer, (15ml): This product is actually something that I use myself almost every day, I cant even explain how good radiant this makes you look, its literally incredible! I personally use it under my main foundation but I can see this working really well on its own for a more natural look. The full size of this product is 40ml and is £39, making this one worth around £15

K.i.s.s.i.n.g lipstick in the shade "Penelope Pink", (1g): This lipstick is by far the cutest thing I have ever seen, and although it looks tiny, the actual lipstick inside it a decent size! The shade of the lipstick is absolutely great for giving as a gift as its a comfortable shade which will suit almost everyone, its not too "out there". This is a 3rd of the full size which retails for £24 so making this worth £8. 

Lip Cheat lip liner in the shade "Pillow Talk", (1.2g) : A cult favourite product, which due to its natural shade, makes over lining the lips incredible easy for any skill level. Again this shade of lipliner is a safe option as its not a bright colour and something which many people can wear in their day to day life. This product is Full-sized and would retail on its own for £16.


S c e n t   O f   A   D r e a m 
Eau de parfum, 50ml.

I worked in Boots on the perfume counter for a while so I like to think that I know quite a bit about not just what's good, but what kind of smells people class with certain things, for example, people would buy Dior as a splurge for a special occasion as its  a classic, sublte...yet strong soft smell, where as for a smaller gift, people would be looking at the celebraty purfumes which tend to be more punchy and fruity.

Now I’m absolutely awful at describing scents, So here goes. The smell of this perfume is very similar to Miss Doir, which is actually one of my favourite scents, and one of which I get numerous compliments on, its a subtle fruity warm scent which I think a lot of different people would enjoy.

I was lucky enough to be sent some products from Charlotte Tilbury to include in this mini gift guide and I must admit I had a mini fan girl moment, although I am great full ( is that one word? I have no idea)  for any PR received, to be considered good enough for such a big well known brand makes me feel good about myself and the work I create, so thank you to CT.
