Is The Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation Really Magic?



Hello Everyone,

Today we will be discussing the age old question: What came first, the chicken or the egg? Is the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation really magic?

Well, the answer is a double edged one my friends, yes and no.


I bought this foundation for several reasons, 4 of them being CHARLOTTE TILBURY, all in caps and bold, over and over.
The other reasons were slightly more sane, I needed a new foundation as my favourite YSL Foundation had ran out and I fancied a little change up and I settled on this Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation after hearing it was fantastic.

As usual, the packaging is gorgeous, just like Charlotte herself, Charlotte Tilbury packaging just looks polished and chic.

This is what Charlotte Tilbury has to say about her Magic Foundation.

My Magic Foundation is a miracle in a bottle that transforms skin for all ages, skin tones and skin types. I have worked with laboratories for five years to create a “hyper-intelligent” formula that gives full-coverage yet feels completely weightless, with all the anti-ageing and protective benefits of a luxury skin cream. It conceals imperfections, glides on like a dream, and literally feels like a second skin. Whether your skin needs just a bit of perfecting, or you struggle with a frustrating issue like acne, melasma or rosacea, my Magic Foundation will give you a perfect looking skin day, every day!




So will you be happy or disappointed? Well friends, that depends on just what sort of magic you're looking for here.
If you're hoping for a good makeup day, nice complexion, medium (buildable) coverage and a natural finish, then girl, Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation has your back, now I can't speak for more oily skin types or those prone to outbreak etc but I have 'normal' skin (I bloody hate that term, almost like any other skin type is abnormal, it annoys me... but that's a total side note rant) and I have been really enjoying this foundation.

However

If you're looking for another kind of magic (I'm talking Harry Potter shizz here) then you'll be sorely disappointed. I asked it to conjure up a few things and had no response. I also attached it to a teeny broom and winged it out the window - No Flying Skills

Overall this is a lovely foundation and I love how it magically transforms my face into a more polished version of myself, but please be aware, this foundation isn't actually magic.

  2. I was sorely disappointed when no actual magic came out of this bottle for me as well... lol. I did quite like this foundation but Ii think I was expecting a little more from it, but thats most likely cause of all the hype.
    Great post as always hun xx

  5. I thought this would be the case with this foundation. I'm sure it has a lovely finish, I'd still be interested in trying it but I haven't heard many rave about it. Love the photos as well girl!

  6. I've read lots of mixed reviews on this foundation and the price is too high for something that is only mediocre. Thank you for an honest review!

  14. Completely agree with your review, it's a great foundation but magic, I'm not so sure! I definitely need to make sure when I'm wearing this I take the time with other products otherwise it really flattens me out!

  19. I liked this... But I didn't LOVE it. It didn't hang around that long on my oily skin - but it looks beautiful for the first two hours!

  21. I tried it and reviewed it. Hated it (so sad about that bit since I love CT brand!). I have heard it does work for some people but it did nothing good for me. Major disappointment. Thanks for reviewing it though hon, it's always interesting to see how a product works for others ;)

  26. I have heard so many mixed reviews about this foundation. Many say it is good, others say it is bad. I want to try it, but only as a sample first. It does look beautiful though.

  30. I've tried many of CT makeup but foundations haven't been one of them, although I think her Light Wonder would be more suited to me as I have quite dry skin. This one sounds lovely though, have heard great things xx

  33. I think I'll pass and search for a different type of magic in that case... I have a very oily skin that a foundation needs spells and stuff in order to stay put as long as I need it to be. Great review though, love the way you described the product!!
