These are the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Highlighter and Contour Wand in Fair/Medium. Both are tubed liquid products with a sponge tip applicator. Many have an issue with the applicator while I, personally, don’t really care. They aren’t the most hygienic of tips but that’s never stopped me from loving a product before (um, hello Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer, my love).
Today we are chit-chatting about some fancy products. Specifically, some Charlotte Tilbury products.
The contour product is beautifully matte and semi-sheer, allowing you to layer as needed for depth and/or coverage. I have the lighter shade of this contour wand and find it to be very flattering on my skin tone. If you have a deeper complexion than me you may benefit from trying out the Medium/Deep shade. It really is sheer, though, so expect to build up a few layers to get solid payoff.
The highlighting wand is just…….. disco ball perfection. I wanted this highlighter for so long but put it off because of the price ($38 USD) and availability only at Nordstrom. That was until my fiancé finally bought it for me last Christmas!!! I’ve been using it religiously ever since. The best part about reading about these Beauty Wands now? Charlotte Tilbury is now carried in Sephora so you can rack up those Beauty Insider points by buying them. Solves any issue I had prior when I was holding off on picking up. I would not consider this highlight to be fully “glossy” (i.e. no base pigment and just reflectivity) and would say it’s partially metallic but when applied properly (a little goes a long, long way), it will look extremely beautiful as just an amplified, natural highlight.
Here’s a before, during and after photo. For the contour I applied two or three layers to get the result you see and just one for the highlight.
If you’ve tried the medium/deep shade, let me know if it is just as sheer as this shade appears to be! If I had to pick a favorite out of these two Beauty Wands, I would absolutely go for the highlighter. That being said, if you’re willing to drop the $$ on both, do it. These are high quality face products that will become staples in your makeup routine.
