Charlotte Tilbury 2019 bestselling cosmetics
.... and it's time to kiss goodbye to Christmas!  I know, it's tragic.  I've literally forgotten how to listen to music that isn't festive and I'm not sure how I feel about not waking up and having chocolate for breakfast.  However, when one door closes, another opens and in this case it means the arrival of a fabulous new year - and decade!  Personally, 2019 was a brilliant year for me that brought about a lot of change and I mean a lot of change.  Most significantly, a move to London and a new job.  How was this past year for you?  It can be hard to determine, but thankfully when it comes to shopping it's muuuch easier to determine what has performed well.  As a festive surprise, a few days before Christmas Day, Charlotte Tilbury sent this fabulous box brimming with goodies to my front door!  It contains a curated edit of their bestselling products of 2019.  The question is: what have my fellow Charlotte Tilbury obsessives been loving lately?

First and foremost, the utterly magical liquid wands.  I've worked my way through three of Charlotte Tilbury's Beauty Light Wands in the past year and so this has been very gratefully received.  I can completely understand why this is one of the brand's bestselling products.  Once applied, it immediately brightens the face - particularly when used on the cheekbones.  I love layering mine over Charlotte Tilbury's Filmstar Bronze & Glow.  The combination is high impact and yet not blinding.  Charlotte Tilbury's Hollywood Contour Wand is a new introduction to me, though not entirely alien thanks to the cushion applicator identical to the Beauty Light Wand.  I've always steered clear of contouring in fear of getting 'carried away', however the Hollywood Contour Wand helps prevent this by providing a more natural, buildable colour.  Having said that, if you wanted to go crazy with it, you sure could!

Psst!  If you're thinking of purchasing both wands, consider purchasing them as The Hollywood Contour Duo to save a few pennies.

As featured in my Christmas Beauty Gift Guide, the bestselling Charlotte Tilbury Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask makes for one incredibly luxurious treat.  Inspired by the technical innovations of Korean beauty, the mask can be used up to three times and to put it simply, lives up to its name - magic!  I've tried the dry sheet mask before and adored the results, and so I'll be using this one to prep before heading out to celebrate New Year's Eve this upcoming week.

I would say out of all of Charlotte Tilbury's bestselling products (head to their website for a complete edit of bestsellers), Charlotte Magic Cream is the product I've heard the most about this past year.  It's been praised by content creators, celebrities and skin professionals alike.  When my skin was suffering from dehydration during Autumn, I was handed a sample of this cream and after a few days I was convinced it was a little miracle worker!  I'm thrilled to have a new pot of Charlotte's Magic Cream after my previous jar ran out quite some time ago.  It's available in both 30ml and 50ml sizes, both delivered in a perfectly Instagrammable jar - ideal for positioning on your dresser!  

Psst!  Take a peek on Charlotte Tilbury's website for the full lowdown on all of the fabulous ingredients included in Charlotte's Magic Cream, explaining just why it's become so popular!

The ultimate, universally-flattering shade of Charlotte Tilbury's lipsticks: Pillow Talk.  It stocks up, sells out, stocks up and sells out again.  It's popular, for sure.  Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk has been one of my regular go-to shades for the past few months, alongside Kidman's Kiss.  During the daytime I tend to opt for the latter, and for the evening I move to Pillow Talk for a slightly deeper nude to contrast with my pale skin (ugh, roll on summer).  I have quite plump lips and so dehydration is an absolute no-no or it looks very bad, very quickly.  This is why I now exclusively wear Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks.  I know, it's a big statement!  They're super moisturising and smoothing, helping lips look fuller.  Bonus point: I find I only have to reapply once or twice throughout the day. Which let's face it, isn't exactly gruelling when you consider how gorgeous the rose gold applicator looks emerging from you handbag...

Alongside the Matte Revolution Pillow Talk lipstick, you have the matching Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Pillow Talk Lip Liner.  If you're yet to be converted to pairing lipstick with lip liners, now is the time to change your tune before the New Year starts!  It helps to perfect your lip shape, prevent your chosen shade from bleeding and of course, helps to create the illusion of a fuller pout.  

Psst!  Based on global sales figures for the Pillow Talk lip liner and lipstick, one is sold every 2 minutes!
