Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation


 

I recently got my hands on a sample of the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation. Considering that full price this stuff is like liquid gold retailing at £29.50, I thought it would be useful to do a review on the sample before any serious bank damage is made...

The foundation comes in 15 shades which gives some versatility and hopefully if should be easy to find a shade which suits your skin tone. I got mine sent in shade 2 - Fair as my skin is a really pale tone. I find it difficult to find a shade that matches, even when I've been properly matched at a make-up counter, so I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of the shade. 

It has SPF15 which is a must when you're spending that much on a foundation. I believe that SPF is an important element of a foundation so that it provides protection as well as coverage.


The result? I'm really impressed! For once I've sampled a foundation and actually been pleased which is a rarity for me. The shade is a suitable match which I find difficult in all foundations, whether they are cheap or expensive. This one is a lovely porcelain colour that doesn't make my skin look orange. The coverage is even and it covers blemishes well without caking the skin. 

 Here are some before and after pics I took before work. As it was very early in the morning when I took these photos bear in mind that it is artificial lighting rather than natural light:

Definitely worth trying if you're looking for a new foundation and willing to pay the price. Although I think it is a foundation that actually does its job and not only that, does its job well, I'm not sure if I'm willing to spend that much on a foundation just yet.


Perhaps a birthday present idea...? :P

Have any of you tried this foundation? What were your thoughts?
