This is going to be a long one … I have the entire Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Collection for you all today and it is stunning! If you love the glow, you’re going to want to take a look.
We all know that my love for Charlotte Tilbury is probably verging on the obsessive, ridiculous sort of love and I make no apologies for that. When I saw the Glowgasm Collection it was love at first sight. I couldn’t decide whether to buy it all though as money is a bit tight and I’m trying to be good.
Thankfully, the lovely team over at CT have sent me the collection, as well as two new Collagen Lip Bath Oils that I’m guessing will be launching soon. I’ve been swatching, playing and falling head over heels for this gorgeous collection and I’m so excited to show it all to you.
Face Palettes – £60.00 each
I think the Glowgasm Face Palettes are what have got everyone excited. With Lightgasm (for fairer skin tones) and Lovegasm (for darker skin tones), they are 4 shade palettes each containing a bronzer, blush and mega-watt highlighter. Seriously, no photograph can do these palettes justice … they are incredibly beautiful.
My new Glowgasm palette is a magical joy filter … a divine rush of glow that will laminate your skin from every angle.Charlotte Tilbury
With 4 stunning shades that enhance every skin tone, add a gorgeous glow and bring instant Tilbury magic to your makeup, the palettes are a work of art. There’s a prisma highlight, a multi-glow shade, a love blush and a bronzer.
Charlotte describes them as having a ‘magic joy filter’ and they certainly add a gorgeous effect to the skin without any powdery feel or look. You get the signature Tilbury lit-from-within glow thanks to luscious pearl pigments that also add a dreamy rainbow effect finish. A brightening glow gel helps to provide a beautiful glowing translucency that plays with the light and almost stretches over the skin. There are also smoothing polymers that work to give a lovely soft-focus finish to the skin.
Now both palettes have pretty much the same shades, but they’re lighter in the Lightgasm palette and darker in the Lovegasm palette.
LIGHT IT – soft champagne to highlight and illuminate features
GLOW IT – layer your level of illuminating glow
POP IT – youthful rosy blush to illuminate skin
BRONZE IT – neutral cocoa to tone, sculpt and define contours
I have fair skin but I’ve found that the Bronze It shade from the Lovegasm palette actually shows up better on my skin. If I am gentle I can also make the other Lovegasm shades work for me and they also work gorgeously as eyeshadows. For day to day then the Lightgasm is definitely perfect for me, but for the days when I want to go all out, Lovegasm is where it’s at.
Dreamgasm Luxury Palette – £39.00
I am partial to an eyeshadow quad and as part of the Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Collection, we have the Dreamgasm Luxury Palette. This is beautiful, but I have all of the quads and so therefore I have 3 of these shades already. It contains shades from Transform-Eyes, Pillow Talk and Dolce Vita … but it is nice to have them together in one palette.
It’s an ethereal summer glow in a palette!Charlotte Tilbury
Designed to create a glowing halo effect on the eyes, there are 4 complementary shades in gorgeous champagne, bronze and copper tones. The shadows are nicely pigmented, possibly more so than in some of the earlier Luxury Palettes.
As with Charlotte’s other Luxury Palettes, Dreamgasm is easy to use, with a simple 4 step guide to get a gorgeous eye look. You can’t go wrong with it at all, so even if you’re not that confident with eyeshadow, you can easily create something lovely.
PRIME – soft champagne
ENHANCE – rose gold
SMOKE – copper / bronze
POP – copper sparkle
The shadows are lustrously rich and long-lasting and they don’t settle into the eyelid crease. They have a silky smooth consistency and if you like warm tones, you’re probably going to fall a little bit in love with this palette.
Beauty Light Wands – £29.00 each
There are also 3 new Beauty Light Wands as part of the Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Collection and they are bloody gorgeous! When the first wands came out I was a bit scared of them, but I’ve got the knack now and I’m a huge fan.
I call these my red carpet diva lights – they play with the light and make you look instantly glowing and gorgeous!Charlotte Tilbury
The wands are liquid high blushers and a liquid highlighter designed to give you a gorgeous soft focus glow. They play with the light to bathe your skin in light and beauty. They blend out beautifully and almost melt into your skin – but a little goes a long, long way so don’t get carried away.
The applicator is an easy magic cushion that is a soft pad that dispenses the product evenly onto your cheekbones. Sometimes it can take a while for the product to come through on first use, but don’t be tempted to squeeze the tube too hard as then you’ll end up with far too much product. They also dry quite quickly, but they do stay looking nice and dewy throughout the day. Patience and a gentle touch are the key until you get the hang of them.
Glow Gel helps to enhance the skin’s luminosity giving a high-gloss highlight that plays with the light and gives a stunning radiance. Velvety Silica helps to give that soft-focus finish, whilst Sensorial Oil gives a silky, soft feel to the skin. You get that dreamy radiance thanks to Brightening Pigments and Lindera Extract works to mimic the effects of light to give a youthful glow to the complexion.
GOLDGASM – golden liquid highlighter
PINKGASM – glowing pink liquid blush
PEACHGASM – glowing peach liquid blush
Eyes To Mesmerise – £22.00 each
Now these aren’t new, but they have been re-released to fit in with the new collection. I do find Charlotte’s Eyes To Mesmerise to be some of the nicest cream eyeshadows that I have ever tried, and these shades are stunning.
STAR GOLD – bright amber gold metallic with warm brown undertones
ROSE GOLD – soft pink rose gold metallic
The Eyes To Mesmerise shadows have a revolutionary water-infused formula that has a nice cooling effect on the eyes, so great if you’ve got tired eyes. They’re extremely smooth and glide across the lids without any dragging and Vitamin E helps to hydrate and protect against free radicals.
They contain soft focus pigments that illuminate and smooth over any lines and imperfections to give the eyes a youthful finish. I tend to apply them with my fingers, but you can use a brush. They blend out really well and are rich in pigment. If I’m short on time, these are great as they’re quick and easy to apply and give a beautiful finish.
