Review – Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation

I jumped straight on the band wagon as soon as I heard about this foundation stalking the Charlotte Tilbury website until it was released, I bought it as soon at the email pinged on my phone to say it was now available at a whopping €40 a bottle. So what sold this foundation to me without even looking up a single review on line (not like me). Well it claims to be full coverage, doesn’t sit in any lines, weather you suffer from acne, redness, discolouration or dull, tired skin Magic foundation will give you a perfect looking skin day, every day! SOLD I was so confident in this foundation I bought TWO, my normal shade and a shade for when I false tan….

As soon as my parcel arrived I cracked it open and couldn’t wait to try it……

First let me tell you about my skin, I have Oily, Acne prone, Redness and very tired, dull skin (tired momma) this foundation was the answer I was looking for! 

The first time I used it I had a freshly washed faced, I applied my beloved CT Magic Cream, primed my skin and used a buffing brush to apply it. I was disappointed straight away it didn’t go on smoothly, it sat in my pores, caked around my mouth it just sucked the moisture out of my face to say I was annoyed was an understatement but I wasn’t ready to give up after the first go! The next day I decided to try it again only this time I pampered my skin beforehand in the hopes it would help. I exfoliated, used Ct facemask, used loads of my Magic Cream, applied CT Wonder glow. This time I used my Real Techniques sponge which never fails me when applying foundation, except this time I just hated the way it looked on my skin, I felt so uncomfortable with the way it looked on my face. I have tried it so many times with so many different brushes and methods to apply it, I just can’t get it to work for me. I would love to know what you guys think of it and how you apply it. I was thinking this morning about writing a review on this foundation, so I decided to put it on to make sure I had made my mind up on it, I washed it off within a half an hour of applying it, I just don’t get it.


I will say I LOVE the packaging and have it displayed in my make-up room.
