What if I instructed you that, earlier than downloading TikTok in 2021, I had by no means tried a single Charlotte Tilbury make-up product? As a magnificence author, that sentence was embarrassing to write down, nevertheless it needed to be stated. The app, connecting full strangers along with trending songs, movies, and pursuits, actually does have a good grip on customers — particularly magnificence lovers. So many viral movies and tendencies have had us filling our make-up luggage (and emptying our financial institution accounts) with each Charlottle Tilbury make-up product we have been fortunate sufficient to get our arms on. And I imply that fairly actually: merchandise just like the Beauty Light Wand and Flawless Filter promote out quicker than your native pharmacies’ COVID checks.
As a result of I am on a confession streak, it is also value noting there have been some extraordinarily admirable basis launches over the previous few months. That stated, my expectations for the brand new Beautiful Skin Foundation, which launched on January 4 in 30 shades, have been set to an all-time excessive. It promised hydrating, non-greasy put on with a dewy finish, so I could not comprise my pleasure after securing two completely different shades, which I rapidly realized have been a tad too darkish for my pale, winter skin however continued to use anyway. I wasn’t leaving the house in 18-degree climate, so what the heck, proper? Fortunately, the speedy Charlottle Tilbury workforce shipped me a brand new (and lighter) shade choice, giving the liquid basis a second first impression with a full day’s put on — out and in of the house.
Earlier than stepping into what’s frankly a love letter for this formulation, I will let beauty chemist Ginger King get into the nitty-gritty of this basis’s hydrating elements. Its coconut extract and cassia angustifolia seeds are each a “hydrating and a pure supply of hyaluronic acid,” King says. For those who do not already know, hyaluronic acid “is nice at holding water and giving pores and skin resilience and firmness,” New York Metropolis-based board-certified dermatologist Doris Day, M.D., previously told Allure. “This not solely helps the pores and skin look stunning but in addition helps it perform at its finest.” That makes it the proper star ingredient for this hydrating basis.
Two different noteworthy elements make this basis an incredible choice for these with delicate and irritable skin. Bixa orellana seeds, that are “antioxidant-rich and soothing for the pores and skin,” says King. Whereas on the subject of soothing, King can not help however name out damask rose water, “a soothing, oil-toning ingredient” for the pores and skin. Now that we’re clear on the important thing elements, listed below are a couple of editors’ sincere critiques.
