Along with some Sarah Chapman skincare goodies, the only thing I want for Christmas is some Charlotte Tilbury makeup. It's been a long time since I've been so excited by a makeup brand. Everything Charlotte creates is simply stunning & I have to admit - I want it all. Although she launched her makeup range in 2013, counters local to me in Manchester & Leeds only opened up very recently. I don't really like spending so much money on cosmetics if I can't swatch them in person first so I just waited patiently for those northern counters to open instead of ordering online. In September I bought my first Charlotte Tilbury item, the Uptown Girl eyeshadow palette. The quality is like nothing else & creating gorgeous eye looks with it is child's play. I would've bought more but the Leeds counter had hardly anything left in stock! I was hooked immediately & soon started plotting what to buy next.

I can't resist sneaking over to a Charlotte Tilbury counter whenever I'm in Leeds or Manchester so I have actually bought a few of the items on this wishlist already! I'm being good though & have placed them under my tree ready for Christmas Day. If you're planning on asking for any Charlotte Tilbury products this Christmas I would go for the Fallen Angel eyeshadow palette. This is one of the things I've already bought & it is incredible. I deserve a slap for spending £45 on four eyeshadow pans but I just couldn't help myself! Plus it's limited edition so if you don't buy it now, you might miss out on it forever. The Rock 'N' Kohl liner finishes off any eye look perfectly, it is pitch black & stays put. I never normally care about pencil eyeliners but this is something special. I also finally bought the Filmstar Bronze & Glow with the Powder & Sculpt brush. I was torn between getting this or the Anastasia Contour Palette but the gorgeous shades, the shimmer & the luxe packaging of Bronze & Glow eventually won me over. The Flawless Finish powder looked amazing when I had it applied at a counter. It's quite similar to the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light but less shimmery. I'm obsessed with blushers & the ones that really appealed to me when swatched were Love Glow & Ecstasy. They're highly pigmented, blend so beautifully & feel like silk.

If you're a lip product junkie like me then you have to try her lipsticks. The colours available are so pretty & the formula of both the K.I.S.S.I.N.G. & Matte Revolution lipsticks is just wonderful. I've seen so many people rocking Glastonberry on their lips lately & I need that deep blackcurrant shade in my life. I've heard so many good things about the Lip Cheat lip liner in Pillow Talk. I can't wait to draw on some massive Kylie Jenner lips with this! How cute are the Mini Lipstick Charms? In that adorable box you get a mini version of Penelope Pink, Bitch Perfect & So Marilyn. It would make such a lovely little present & I can only hope someone buys it for me! Are there any Charlotte Tilbury products on your Christmas wishlist?

  1. I really like these type of posts your doing! I have to agree with you, I have seen so much about CT everywhere, but I am yet to purchase something! I have been lusting after the Glastonberry lipstick though. Cracking Christmas list!

  2. Gorgeous picks! I've been craving Charlotte Tilbury products for ages- her Dolce Vita eye shadow palette is at the top of my list :)


  3. This is like looking at my Charlotte Tilbury wishlist, except from the brush and Flawless Finish powder. The Bronze & Glow is on top of my WL and I might just need to splurge on it soon :)

  4. I don't think there is one item from hers that I wouldn't want. Like most, I think the eyeshadows are the top of my list!
