#NEW Charlotte Tilbury Brightening Youth Glow Primer (Review)

Anyone who knows me or is a keen follower of Jellybluesblog already will know that Charlotte Tilbury is one of my absolute favourite beauty brands!! From her gorgeous lipsticks to those incredible brow products, there is not much that Charlotte cannot put her good name too.

Since getting my (makeup hungry) hands on this relatively new product by Charlotte Tilbury, I must say that for some reason, I haven’t really heard many people talk about this new product?! 

Which is why I, therefore felt like it was very important to share with you all my true thoughts and feelings on the new Brightening Youth Glow, Anti-Ageing, Colour-Correcting, Glow Booster by none other than Charlotte Tilbury.


So, what can I tell you about this primer?

Well, as said by Charlotte Tilbury herself over on YouTube – this primer has carela and chlamydia rose in its ingredients, as well as vitamin B3, antioxidants and olive oil extract. 

As a primer, this product will supposedly bring down any inflammation in the skin, whilst also evening out one’s skin tone and smoothen any fine lines as well. The high levels of active ingredients in this product’s formula will also help to reduce any redness in one’s complexion, which is certainly a positive believe me!

When using the new Brightening Youth Glow as a primer and before applying the rest of your makeup, Charlotte says that you can be assured that your skin will appear fresher and also plumper looking overall! Now, whether or not this product does indeed live up to all of these incredibly high claims is in fact a different story BUT a story that I am willing to share my own experiences on with you all in this post… 

The full ingredients list for this primer can be found here.

With all of the INCREDIBLE claims on the new Brightening Youth Glow Primer, you know that I HAD to get my hands on one and with that try this product out for myself! I am a huge fan of Charlotte Tilbury products and am always a total sucker for any new product release, just like this one!

Now first and foremost, I must tell you that I really like this product… 

I like how this product sits on my skin, how it appears but also most importantly how the different types of foundation that I use sit and blend over the top of this. By using this product as a primer before applying any other makeup product, my complexion is left with a flawless veil of radiance. From the tiny speckles of glitter, this primer gives my complexion a much more awake appearance, whilst also helping my skin to look more fresh and ready for the day ahead. 

Now whether or not this product is benefiicial to my skin, I couldn’t actually quite say for sure, just because I simply haven’t been using this product for long enough. It does however give my skin a much plumper, fresher apppearance which I am a massive fan of. 

Described as a skincare based product by Charlotte Tilbury herself, I would also just like to point out that this product does NOT irritate nor cause any kind of bad reaction to my usually dry, sensitive skin type. Often many skincare products, as well as different types of makeup will cause my skin to breakout quite rapidly, although I can’t say that this thankfully has! 



When using the new Brightening Youth Glow, Anti-Ageing, Colour-Correcting, Glow-Booster as a primer before applying any other makeup, I always like to ensure that I have exfoliated, cleansed, toned and moisturised prior. Simply because I wouldn’t call this product particuarly moisturising nor hydrating. And my skin needs all the help it can get. 

I simply adore how easy and effortless this product is to use. The fast-absorbing weightless cream melts into the skin, revealing a uplifting veil of radiance that I just can’t get enough of. I love it. 

I love how this product smoothens the texture of my skin just slightly, although I would definitely recommend layering this primer with one a little more concentrated for larger pores if you do have them, as the Brightening Youth Glow will not conceal larger pores nor a dramaticially uneven skin texture. Never the less I really like using this product, and would certainly consider purchasing it again, as I love how glowly and radiant this makes my complexion appear! 

P.S. This may also be a lovely product to use in the summer time over the collar bones and shoulders… Who knows, I will have to try this out for myself when the time comes.


What are your thoughts on the new Brightening Youth Glow Primer by Charlotte Tilbury?!

Love, Jess
