As you can tell from that whopper title, I'm going to review another present from underneath my Christmas tree, this time in the form of Charlotte Tilbury's Skin Perfecting Micro Powder. Charlotte Tilbury, much like Anastasia Beverly Hills as discussed in my last post click here, has taken over the blogisphere as one of the most sought after beauty brands of 2014. With this powder and Charlotte's Magic Cream being the main breadwinners of the collection I was lucky enough to get the powder for Christmas.
So is it worth the hype ? Abso-bloody-lutely! I cannot get enough of this powder, it literally does exactly what it says on the tin. It almost blurs imperfections while giving surprising coverage and colour payoff. As you can see from the pictures I was given the shade medium, which is the perfect shade for me. As far as I am aware there are only 3 shades in this powder, light, medium and dark. I use this powder on my lower cheeks and forehead, ie everywhere I don't contour or highlight, however this is only my personal preference and if you wanted to use this just on your T-zone or all over your face that's fine too! As mentioned above, I was surprised at how pigmented this powder is and it leaves a lovely smooth finish to the skin without looking cakey.
All in all I am absolutely loving this product and I haven't been greeted with any unwanted dryness or breakouts as a result of using it which is always a bonus! My mum purchased this powder in Brown Thomas (brownthomas.com) but as far as I'm aware you can buy it in Selfridges as well and obviously the Charlotte Tilbury website.
Until next time girlies, Lola Rose xx
