The makeup fairies have listened and at long last the Charlotte Tilbury Genius Magic Powder is here. I’ve had a little wishlist of products I wish Charlotte would make, such as a setting spray called Magic Mist, and a loose powder was at the top of the list.
Now I adore the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder, but sometimes a girl needs a loose powder, so the fact that there’s now one from Charlotte Tilbury makes me happy beyond belief.
Charlotte Tilbury do complexion products really well, so I knew that this would be good, but I didn’t expect it to be this good. Sometimes loose powders just look cakey on me and can feel quite heavy, but this is amazing. It’s lightweight and weightless and it doesn’t feel like you’re even wearing powder and it makes your skin look incredible.
So Charlotte Tilbury Genius Magic Powder is a light-diffusing loose powder that gives you a beautiful matte finish to the skin, but still with a bright and radiant effect – it really is genius.
If you have any imperfections then they will be blurred, dark shadows are reduced and your skin looks smoother. You look like you have had a gorgeous soft-focus veil applied to your complexion and your skin just looks so healthy. I’ve tried many many loose powders over the years and I didn’t think anything could beat my trusted Laura Mercier, but this is a million times better.
There are only 3 shades available – light, medium and dark – which doesn’t seem a lot in today’s more diverse market, but perhaps they will expand this in the future. I have the powder in light, and whilst it does have pink undertones it doesn’t really show up pink on the skin – it leaves no cast too you should be fine with this regardless of your own skin’s undertones.
Charlotte always uses great ingredients in her products and this is no exception.
BIO-COMPATIBLE SILKY MICA – creates a natural opacity with a brightening – radiance effect to instantly create a more youthful look. The Mica is treated with amino acids to give your skin a silky smooth feel.
SPHERICAL SILICA – absorbs sebum, reduces shin and mattifies the skin. It also reflects light for a soft focus effect.
TSUBAKI OIL – a traditional Japanese oil that helps to nourish and soften the skin.
SQUALENE – is a natural olive oil that helps contribute to the skin’s protective barrier.
FACE BLUR VEGGIE POWDER – is made from a talc alternative.
HIGH PERFORMING NATURAL PIGMENTS – have a second skin adherence and a gorgeous creamy feel.
