“I call these my red carpet diva lights – they play with the light and make you look instantly glowing and gorgeous!”Charlotte Tilbury
When I saw the pre-launch photos of the new Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Collection four items immediately grabbed my attention and the final piece has made its way into my makeup bag! The Pillow Talk Beauty Light Wands recently launched and having never tried the Beauty Light Wands from Charlotte Tilbury I am really excited to give them a whirl!
The Pillow Talk Beauty Light Wand comes packaged in the collections pink boxing (I’m adding pink into my house a little more now I am out numbered by boys!). It comes in a tube and dispenses through a sponge applicator located at the top. It conveniently has an on/off screw cap which is great in case any little fingers get hold of it – I won’t loose any product!
The Beauty Light Wand is designed to give a hint of colour and glow to the cheeks, if you are a regular reader you will know I love a bit of glow! It contains the following to provide a radiant appearance:
- Sensorial Oil – a light non-oily emollient to leave a soft feeling and shine
- Lindera Extract – to give the skin a healthy glow and smooth appearance
- Velvety Silica – to absorb oil and provide a soft focus
- Lustrous Polymers – to enhance the appearance luminosity providing a glossy highlight
- Fast-Drying Film Former – working with the Lustrous Polymers gives a soft finish
- Brightening Pigments – for a soft and radiant appearance
The colour is a beautiful soft champagne pink (see swatch below), a delicate shade which compliments my fair skin but will also look lovely once I start to fake tan for Spring! The formula is light and silky, it applies easily and effortlessly using the sponge applicator. I found that it does dry quite quickly (for those of us that get distracted easily!) and stays in place all day. After dabbing on a couple of dots I can blend the formula easily into my skin using my finger (perfect for us multitaskers on busy days!).
I like to use this as a highlight or mixed in with my liquid blush for some added glow! The Beauty Light Wand leaves a beautiful radiant finish, a soft shimmer with the perfect amount of light reflection which appears natural as opposed to overpowering. It sits beautifully on my skin without accentuating any of my dry areas (thank you Winter!) which does happen with powder highlight this time of year. It is such a pretty feminine and flattering shade which is perfect for my everyday makeup, I use it alongside my liquid foundations and the formula blends beautifully with them. A little goes a long way and I do not require a lot to achieve my preferred finish, I am expecting this tube will last me quite some time!
Have a great Friday everyone! Sarah xx
