Charlotte Tilbury Brand of the Year 2014


Charlotte Tilbury
This year there was quite simply one brand that for me stood out from all of the rest; stand up Charlotte Tilbury! From first glance the rose gold packaging had me captivated and that was long before I even tried any of the products for myself. From the items I own personally I have to say they are probably the most luxurious pieces of make up that I own, not just from the packaging but from the quality of the products too. This is not going to be review post today as I'm planning on producing individual posts on the various products throughout the next few months. If however you're interested in the lipstick then I already have you covered on that one as I have reviewed Bitch Perfect it its entirety just a few months ago. 

I have being blogging three years in March and I'll be honest with you I've never really been captivated by a brand as much as I have been with this one. The quality is there, as is the passion and the enthusiasm which naturally radiates from Charlotte Tilbury herself. From first-hand experience the make up artists at the Birmingham counter in Selfridges are so incredibly passionate, whereby this is evident from chatting to them about the products. It's clear to see that they're not just there to sell them, they really believe in the brand and want you to too. 

There are currently nine eye shadow palettes within the collection of which the limited edition 'Fallen Angel' palette is still available as of writing this post. Each one of them has its own designated look, for instance 'The Rock Chic' is all about the sultry smoky eye whereby in contrast to this 'The Vintage Vamp' is still very much about the eyes but incorporates a bright bold lip, perfect for New Year's Eve. There are of course more products within the Charlotte Tilbury line, the Filmstar Bronze and Glow is a personal favourite of mine.

I'm keeping this post short and sweet as I really should be revising for my law exams however the urge to share with you my favourite brand of 2014 was just too much for me to handle. In a nut shell the Charlotte Tilbury line made me excited about make up again, I mean really excited and that is why Charlotte Tilbury has been my favourite brand of the year.

  1. I've heard so much about CT recently. I wish I could afford it! Sadly my student budget doesn't allow it. Maybe towards the end of the year when I'm earning! I can dream until then!

  55. I was very luck to win two of these here although I must admit I feel a little embarrassed by how much I have spent on these in such a short amount of time. I'm definitely not buying any make up for a while x

    ReplyDelete
  56. I really do recommend her products, I haven't tried a lot of it (there's lip pencils, eye shadow crayons etc) but what I have tried has been really nice x

    Ooooo. I have such mixed feelings about CT. Yes it's pretty but it's also quite pricey - I don't know what I'm doing with budget make up half the time so it might be an insult to the CT line if I tried having a go with it. I don't know. I think I need to visit a counter and see if they can work some magic on me.
