Charlotte Tilbury: The Retoucher

It’s not often that an entire brand completely wows you as you peruse its counter, but that certainly was the case this weekend as I took a pitstop in Selfridges to visit my good friend (I wish) Charlotte Tilbury.

Everything is just so aesthetically pleasing – the rose gold packaging gives me all kinds of feelings, some may even say it gets me giddy. Is this what true love feels like? I hope so.

I was in the market for a new concealer and have read rave reviews on various blogs about Charlotte Tilbury’s The Retoucher. You twist the bottom of the concealer pen for the product to come out the top on to the tiny brush, just like L’Oreal’s Lumi Magique. I do like the L’Oreal offering and would likely repurchase it, but at the moment I need more coverage for what I can only describe as my black eyes caused by 12 hour days (full time probe). 

I swatched it on the back of my hand and was surprised at the full coverage and just how freaking silky it felt. It blends perfectly into the skin – I have the shade Fair 2 and it’s the perfect match. 

After this little love affair, next pay day I think I may treat myself to something else from this lovely lady’s line (doesn’t she just seem so nice via her social media?). Perhaps one of the new matte lipsticks? Decisions decisions…

What are your favourite Charlotte Tilbury products?
