While Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Liquid 24h longwear SPF 15 Foundation is still my go-to foundation and still the best foundation I have used to date, I wanted to try some other foundations in the hope of finding an even better product to use in my photo and video shoots. So I recently purchased a bottle of Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 and Charlotte Tilbury Air Brush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder.

Why did I decide to try Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15?

Charlotte Tilbury Magic FoundationI came across the product on Nordstrom and found the claim that it was ‘magic in a bottle’ intriguing. My aging skin could certainly use some magic in a bottle when it comes time to take pictures and make videos.

After reading the below claims on the Nordstrom website for this product, I was sold enough to give it a try:

The foundation 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, this foundation will give you perfect-looking skin every single day. A concentrated mushroom extract improves firmness, tightens pores and moisturizes; hyaluronic acid filling spheres reverse wrinkle grooves to retexture the skin within one hour; and supercharged vitamin C gives you a lit-from-within effect. It’s also great for those with acne scarring, mature skin and normal to tired, dull skin.

Research results:

In a study featuring 554 women:

– 89% agree the foundation lasts all day.

– 90% agree it’s comfortable on their skin.

– 83% would recommend it to a friend.

– 77% agree it gives them perfect-looking skin.

– 88% agree it matches their skin tone.

I love my Lancome foundation and yes, it’s the best foundation I have used to this point. But I’m still on the hunt for that foundation that’s going to give me the ability to do a grand jete and a tour en l’air from being so off the charts thrilled with the way it makes me look. So when I read about a foundation having all those abilities claimed in the product description for the Charlotte Tilbury Magic, of course I have to try it. A foundation that can do all that and literally feel like a second skin? What’s there to think about?

So I bought myself a bottle of Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation and a Charlotte Tilbury Air Brush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder, and a much needed application brush.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation and powder

I have to say though, I’m not in love with the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation. I haven’t found that it does the things it claims. For me, it did not glide on like a dream and it did not feel like a second skin. The face powder wasn’t too bad though. But this brand is not going to become a go-to for me. I’m not likely to buy another bottle of Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation. And although the powder is decent, I probably won’t try it again either. There’s nothing about it I find to be superior to the Lancome. And it only costs a few dollars less.
