Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation – in the shade: 01 fair
The ‘flawless long-lasting coverage, broad spectrum SPF 15’ Magic foundation by Charlotte Tilbury is said to be demi-matte and give skin moisture with also the finish of dewy skin. With that also it is said to minimise your pores too. After receiving this for my birthday (last March) I have only used this product twice, as I am so so disappointed with the results.
With applying this in splodges all over my skin to begin with I soon realised that this foundation has a seriously thick consistency, which also dries more or less instantly in the first splodges you put onto your face. This foundation does blend to a degree but with that you also see the dried areas of where you first put it onto your face and it does have a tendency to appear quite caked and thick even when applying just a small amount. I also find this foundation to be incredibly drying for the skin, so perhaps this would be better suited for those with more oily skin, as if your like me with dry skin I would say to stay away from this! To mention one positive about this foundation, it would have to be the packaging! I LOVE it, but overall I am so disappointed with this product and definitely did not expect such an expensive foundation to be the way it is.
