At Her Vancouver we receive a lot of beauty samples and it’s often a quick rip and swipe before heading out the door that composes our product testing procedure. More often than not, the product is just okay, not worthy of mention. However, once in a while we get stopped in our tracks with a “Wam jam thank-you ma’am!” magic beauty moment. This time that ma’am worth thanking is Charlotte Tilbury.
Not too long ago the products used by beauty maven and make-up artist to the stars, Charlotte Tilbury, became accessible to the masses with her self-titled line of make-up and magic cream. With the view in mind of keeping make-up routines simple but producing unbelievably satisfying results, Charlotte Tilbury focused on products with multi-use purposes and easy to blend formulas.
Currently we cannot get enough of Charlotte Tilbury’s new Quick ‘n’ Easy 5 Minute Kit. Charlotte says, “I have spoken to women all around the world, who are as time-starved as they are tired, and they ALWAYS say to me, ‘Charlotte, I have no time and no skill for makeup.’ I say, ‘Give me 5 minutes with my formulas for quick and easy, mood-boosting makeup. Whether you apply it in the wing mirror of your car, back of a taxi, on the tube, on the school run, in the boardroom, in the gym, or on the runway, my looks are fabulous 5-minute makeup solutions to everyday situations. My whole ethos is about making makeup easy to choose and easy to use with no skill required!”
We tested the Daytime Chic Kit and fell hard for the Beach Stick in Formentera paired with the Mini Wonderglow cream, Legendary Lashes and Classic Eye Liner in Audrey. We were dubious that the Beach Stick would produce the desired glow over our pasty white winter skin, much less that it would blend easy using our fingertips as brushes. We were wrong. The subtle tone of the stick made our natural lip colour pop and without pressing hard or wiping off the product with our fingers, blending the beach stick on our cheeks was a smooth, seamless process. The overall look with the cream, mascara, liner and stick was a healthy glow, slightly more frost bitten as opposed to sun-kissed at this time of the year, but regardless a natural beauty enhancer and sure enough; we had our kit applied in under five minutes. Charlotte calls these kits, “every woman’s secret weapon,” and Her Vancouver absolutely agrees!
