Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation

I recently tried the Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation in 7 medium. Now, I have heard rave reviews regarding Charlotte Tilbury products and I am a huge fan of her work. 
I haven't actually bought the bottle of foundation, I tried the product from sachet samples that was kindly sent in the post. I really wanted to try the foundation first before I spent £32 on the actual bottle. (There is nothing worse than spending money on a product that ends up being rubbish or terrible on your skin)

I decided to try out a makeup look using the sample that I was given. My initial thoughts were that the foundation seemed rather dewy on my skin, this was from placing it on the back of my hand. When first applying it to my face I was unsure as it was quite wet and my foundation brush didn't seem to want to blend it well. After ditching the foundation brush and using my fingers I managed to blend it better and it really worked well. I have been meaning to buy another foundation brush and after trialling this foundation I have finally decided to invest in one. 

Once the foundation was blended in, it was extremely light and provided a fantastic coverage.

I immediately felt the difference on my skin, it was hydrated and light. I have combination skin and suffer from dry patches and oily areas on my face. Light Wonder provided excellent coverage and I thought the colour itself was a perfect match for my skin tone. Usually when I apply foundation I always feel like I have so much makeup on as I do not wear it every day. With Light Wonder it really does feel like your skin, I didn't feel any different but it looked fantastic. Any blemishes were covered and it was perfectly seamless. 

One of my worse fears about foundation is that it blocks your pores and usually brings me out in a spot or two. This usually happens with the majority of foundations that I use which is why I really pick and choose when I wear foundation. However, Light Wonder seems perfect, it doesn't bring me out in spots, it really brightens my skin and my face this morning was smooth and hydrated.

It will be the perfect foundation all year round. It has SPF 15 coverage from UV damage and offers up to 18 hours hydration. (I had the foundation on for 9 hours yesterday and it was still going strong through my work day)  
I would usually have something negative to say, as no product is perfect but I really do not have anything bad to say about this. One thing I would mention is that it took me forever to remove the foundation, which is great for wearing all day but I would suggest buying a good quality makeup remover as you will need it. Other than that, it is really exceptional and definitely worth the money. I will be adding this to my shopping list at the end of February. 
I hope you enjoyed this review! Thank you for reading.
