Charlotte Tilbury ‘Magic’ Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15

So I tried out Charlotte Tilbury Magic foundation and Charlotte Tilbury Air Brush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder...


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.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
charlotte-tilbury-magic-foundation-broad-spectrum-spf-15I have to give the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation a 3-star rating. I wasn't super impressed.
