Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Liquid Concealer
Ah yes, a season change!  Beautiful in every single way... except on the skin.  My skin is not on its best behaviour right now and so as a result I've been doing a fair bit of damage control (think along the lines of: more sleep, less sugar and more water).  However, for those moments when I'm just really missing flawless summer skin, I've been playing around with some makeup options to save the day.  Then, along comes a dreamy package from Charlotte Tilbury, angels sing, confetti starts falling from the sky and I'm able to emerge outdoors again without flinching.  Say hello to two of Charlotte Tilbury's latest releases: Magic Away Liquid Concealer and Charlotte's Genius Magic Powder.  The ultimate skin-perfecting duo...

Okay, so let's start with my favourite of the two, which has been five years in the making, Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away.  The liquid concealer is a shiny, new and fabulous addition to the Charlotte Tilbury family of products, with some very tempting claims to try it for yourself:

Reduces appearance of blemishes, dark circles, redness, pigmentation and fine lines

NEW! Elastic second-skin texture

Full coverage

Lasts up to 15 hours

Water resistant

My favourite part of Charlotte's Magic Away would have to be the applicator.  The sponge tip ('Miracle Precision Beauty Blender Applicator') reaches those awkward parts around the face - plus, it's pretty damn cute to tuck into your handbag for when on-the-go!  

My most common complaint is redness around the nose and this is undoubtedly the best solution I've found so far for that area.  But like I said earlier, my skin hasn't been on its best behaviour lately.  So how does Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Away Liquid Concealer perform with regard to blemishes?  Very, very well - particularly with regard to the long-lasting claim of 15 hours.  And it has a similar effect when coping with dark circles.  It doesn't settle into creases thanks to the applicator and also helps to leave the area glowing, rather than matte.  Hooray!   

Update: this has become my go-to concealer; literally THE best option for concealing dark circles!!

Another of the brand's glossy new releases includes Charlotte's Genius Magic Powder, a 'revolutionary, light-diffusing powder'. Available in three shades, the powder includes ingredients designed to help blur imperfections, reduce appearance of dark shadows and boost radiance for smoother-looking skin.  Now I'm all about reducing the appearance of dark shadows, and especially when Autumn is arriving and I no longer have the mask of a tan on my face to hide all sins!  Right, so what do they claim makes Charlotte's Powder so magical?

  Bio-compatible Silky Mica creating natural opacity with a brightening effect 

Made with 99% natural, unscented, raw ingredients 

Includes Spherical Silica, a sebum absorber that mattifies and reduces shine

Tsubaki Oil is a traditional Japanese oil that nourishes and softens skin (yes please!) 

... and plenty more impressive features, which can be found over on the Charlotte Tilbury website.  Okay, so how do I feel about Charlotte's Genius Magic Powder?  First of all, I should point out I have dry-combination skin and I experienced no irritation with the product.  Can I get a round of applause?  Secondly, don't be put off by complaints of the scent.  It's an acquired fragrance but wow do I love it!  Pop in-store, sniff the powder and get back to me.  Do you love it or hate it?  It's diving opinion, that's for sure!
