Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation | Review/Swatches

Charlotte Tilbury caused another sturr in the beauty industry when the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation launched, Charlotte Tilbury is one of those brands that you just want try to see what miracles each product brings. I was lucky enough to get this foundation just after it launched and I've been trying and trialling it since.

In a frosted bottle with a lid which slots within the casing for the pump I was a little confused and still end up unscrewing it rather than popping the lid off but thats just me being forgetful. I have to mention I like the control of product flow you can get with the pump. The foundation claims has added benefits such as hyaluronic acid and concentrated vitamin c which means it is great for those with dry skin.

Initially when I first tried this on my hand (for this post) I definitely thought it is full coverage, but once I tried this on my face I noticed it soaked into my buffing brush which left me a little confused so I used a much less packed brush similar to flat foundation brush but not as flat that is when this foundation worked better I do still find I have to build up more on certain areas. Once applied I find it is quite dewy which I don't mind. The consistency I would say is average not too runny and not too thick, a little goes a long way with this foundation around two pumps are all I have to use. If you don't mind applying foundation with your fingers you can probably get the full coverage effect with no problem. I also think this may work better with the CT foundation brush as it is recommended on the packaging. Finally although this has added benefits for moisture which is not a negative thing my skin however doesn't like that so I have to set with setting powder and touch up through the day.

Foundation £29.50


  1. Lovely review. My skin is dry so I feel this will work well for me. I'd love to try this.

  2. It looks fab! I definitely need something that moisturises my skin - I'm going to keep this in mind when my current foundation runs out

    Steph -

    1. See if u can get your hands on a sample! x

  3. I've never tried anything by CT but I'm definitely keen to invest in some bits this year! Although my skin is usually oily/combo it has been more on the drier side lately and so the added vitamins are a really good bonus! It's a shame you found your brush soaked up most of the product though, I'm not really a fan of having to apply a foundation with my fingers.
