Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation

I have been contemplating purchasing this foundation for months now, but at £29.50 for a 30ml bottle justifying the cost is the main reason I have refrained from purchasing this until now. Charlotte Tilbury is one of my all time favourite brands. It's one of the only beauty brands that I can always guarantee that 1) I will get my moneys worth and 2) the quality is unbelievable.

Magic Foundation provides full coverage and is so easy to apply. The creamy texture is smooth and you do not need to use a large amount to get the look you want. I purchase shade 7 which is very close to my olive skin tone. In winter I would probably use a blend of 6 and 7 as my skin tends to be lighter - which can't be a surprised because in the UK all we get is rain!
I normally struggle with finding the right foundation. It's not the shade that causes the problem, it's how my skin reacts to the chemicals within the foundation. The majority of foundations that I have tried break me out in spots. There is only a small handful that I can use that match my combination skin perfectly. Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation is one of them.

I am not surprised that so many people fall in love with this foundation. The coverage is exceptional and blends so well. I like to use a beauty blender to apply which I find easier to get an even spread.

The foundation is dewy and hydrating and doesn't dry out your skin. One thing I have noticed is that I do not need to use a primer with this as it lasts such a long time on it's own and also doesn't block my pores. However, I do use a translucent powder on top to keep it looking fresh for longer and this also helps my blusher stay on my cheekbones for long.

I would definitely recommend this foundation, but ensure you choose the right shade - £29.50 isn't money you want to just throw away.
