Charlotte Tilbury | The Ultimate Skin-Perfecting Duo!

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!!

(I'm wearing Charlotte's Genius Magic Powder in 1 Fair)

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!

  13. Those of us in the US are rejoicing because Charlotte Tilbury is finally available at Sephora :) I gave up foundation for the summer and I've been using the CT Hollywood Flawless Filter for an effortless glow. These additions do sound totally fabulous Gabrielle! Good to know that the Magic Away concealer has worked so well for you.

  14. I love everything Charlotte Tilbury and these products look so amazing I definitely need to check them out soon! Gorgeous post Hun! x

  15. The concealer sounds amazing! Especially if it works with dark circles, which are the biggest problem for me. It's not a surprise that these products are so good though, I love the Magic foundation already! Have you tried it?

  16. Her brand is so lovely. I am a fan of her new line coming out. It has nice features and doesn't feel like your wearing makeup at all. I love your style in these photos so chic :)

  18. Theses products looks so great especially the concealer.
    The brush looks different.

    Your photos are fabulous, like always.

  19. Looks like such gorgeous products! Have a great week Gabrielle.

  20. Ooh I'm so excited to try the new concealer! I've heard good things about it from lots of different people but I don't think it's launched in Canada quiet yet. As soon as it does though I definitely want to give it a try. I don't know why I love concealer so much and always want to try new ones, but it's definitely a weak spot for me, and Charlotte Tilbury products are another weak spot, so when you combine the two I pretty much have to try it out!

  21. Such a fan of this brand. Also love your hat!

  22. CT is honestly the best brand ever!

    x Lisa |

  23. Anything that helps fixing redness around the nose and I wanna try it haha! Especially now as the colder temperatures are approaching. Great that it also lasts 15 hours. I mean, that's what you need if you're gonna look fresh through the day! Great post babe, would love to see the full outfit too - it looks so good! Xx

  24. Dannnnnggggg girrrrrl! Love those product pictures! I always learn so much from you when I visit your page! I hope to one day be able to edit my pictures half as well as you! You look super cute in your fedora outfit! Have a lovely day Gabrielle!! <3

  25. What a fabulous pairing. I am dying to try Charlotte Tilbury products, especially that Magic Away Liquid Concealer. I have heard such wonderful things! You look stunning as always!

  26. I have never heard about this cosmetic brand dear, but they look awesome. I love your pictures xx I am flying to London tomorrow for weekend to visit my sister ( her baby girl will be have baptism on Saturday- I am so excited cause I am her godmother )

  27. I would try the powder since I do not use concealer. I usually hear rave reviews about the powder never saw a complaint about the smell but I know some people are sensitive when it comes to scents.

  28. This looks really good, I'd love to try this, especially the powder. Thanks for sharing this brand dear!

  30. I only have the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finishing Powder which I absolutely adore, but I'm loving the sound of the concealer! I'm so glad the brand is available at Sephora now, as I'll definitely be picking some up during the sale!
