Rightfully, local makeup junkies have been in a frenzy since the brand arrived at our local Sephora stores earlier this year. With cult favourite lipsticks and acclaimed Magic Cream, we can definitely sense makeup magic in the air. We even caught a sneak peek of the products used for Charlotte Tilbury’s coveted 10 Looks Wardrobe when we attended on the brand’s glamorous launch party on 12 November.  

Beauty Insider honestly reviews the products used for Charlotte Tilbury’s iconic ‘The Golden Goddess’ look and see if they truly live up to the hype.

The stunning ‘Golden Goddess’ look

Charlotte’s Magic Cream

As its name suggests, Charlotte’s Magic Cream works like magic on the skin. Known to deeply nourish and hydrate the skin, this moisturising cream contains a blend of ingredients including Rosehip Oil and Shea Butter to drench your skin in pure goodness. It also contains other ingredients like Vitamin C & E, Camellia Oil, Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Vera and Frangipani Flower extract to pack a punch in the radiance department.

Here is what we love about this product:

  • Brightens up dull skin (thanks to its Vitamin C and E in the formula)
  • Soothes redness
  • Smoothens fine lines and wrinkles

With hundreds of glowing reviews on Influenster, this moisturising cream has earned cult status and we can see why. We love how the Magic Cream delivers on its promise and acts as a multitasking cream for all skin woes. The lightweight texture and non-greasy finish of this product are also major plus points for us!

“I have a deep set wrinkle under my eye and this baby hydrated and popped that sucker right out! I love how hydrated my skin looks,” says one beauty review.

Price: $150 at Sephora

Airbrush Flawless Foundation

There is no such thing as imperfect skin with the Airbrush Flawless Foundation. This foundation promises to blur out all pores and imperfections to reveal a photo-ready complexion. Formulated with a unique blend of ‘magic ingredients’, this foundation also boasts a multitude of skincare benefits, which includes diminishing fine lines and protecting the skin from harmful pollutants.

Here is what we love about this product:

  • Full coverage
  • Boosts hydration
  • Weightless texture

Whether you struggle with parched skin or stubborn acne, this foundation is a potential holy grail for all skin types. We are fans of this foundation for its soft, diffused finish that is perfect for an all-natural look. Reviewers are also raving over this product for its high coverage powers and long-lasting formula that keeps the skin looking flawless all day long.

Luxury Eyeshadow Palette in The Golden Goddess

This eyeshadow palette is the answer to that sun-kissed look that all beach beauties have been dreaming of. It features four golden bronze shades in lustre finishes that are guaranteed to leave a wash of sparkle on your eyes. With its classic neutral shades, this palette is great for creating eye looks that are perfect for everyday wear.

Here is what we love about this product:

  • Highly pigmented
  • Glides on effortlessly
  • Great staying power

When it comes to its pigmentation, this palette was definitely not here to play. From its butter-like texture and easy blendability, the Luxury Palette is on the top of our list! However, for its price point, we wish that there were more shades available in the palette. With that said, this palette has been rated 4.6 stars out of 5 by reviewers, with one reviewer even saying that this palette is their ‘holy grail’. 

“The colours are amazingly pigmented and there are different shades for different occasions. My favourite eyeshadow palette by far,” one reviewer wrote.

Price: $90 at Sephora

The Classic Eyeliner in Sophia

There is nothing better than reaching for a trusty ol’ Classic Eyeliner for perfectly defined eyes. Enriched with a unique blend of oils and fine powders, this medium brown pencil eyeliner is designed to glide on effortlessly without any fuss. With its sharp pencil tip, this pencil eyeliner offers optimal control for even the shakiest of hands. Check out how Charlotte Tilbury uses this eyeliner to create the Golden Goddess look.

Here is what we love about this product:

  • Intense colour payoff
  • Easy to create both thick and thin lines
  • Creamy texture

This product may have had its perks, but it does not come without its share of downsides. Although we love the colour payoff and creamy texture of this eyeliner, it does cause a little bit of smudging throughout the day. Some reviewers also claim that this eyeliner was ‘quite hard and drags the skin’, but we did not find any problem with that. Overall, we were satisfied with this eyeliner but it is not on our list of must-buys.

Trust Charlotte Tilbury to deliver gorgeous flutters with the Full Fat Lashes Mascara! This mascara promises to deliver everything you need to make your lashes stand out — curl, separation, volume, length and drama. It also boasts a wand complete with fine-tipped bristles to grip onto your lashes, no matter how short or fine.

Here is what we love about this product:

  • Adds volume and length
  • Clump-free
  • Long-lasting power

If you are looking for full and long lashes that still look like your own, we highly recommend this mascara! We are loving this mascara for living up to its promise and delivering volume and length without irritating sensitive eyes. However, some reviewers have said that this mascara does leave them with raccoon eyes, so do take note!

‘This is the only mascara that gives me perfect “fake” lashes without looking gaudy. It is incredible,’ says one reviewer.

Reviewers have said that this lip gloss is ‘perfection’ for its non-sticky texture and gorgeous colour payoff.
