The big glow: Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm collection

Looking for an out-of-this-world glow? Then you need to take a look at Charlotte Tilbury’s Glowgasm collection.

Glowgasm, which came out earlier this spring, features three Beauty Light Wands and a face palette.  The collection is designed to give you an ethereal glow that radiates skin.

The Beauty Light Wands (C$50 each or available as a set for C$132) aren’t new to the line, but Tilbury released three new shades for this collection. These are a liquid highlight/blush product that is in a squeeze tube which you can apply to your face either with your fingers or directly from the rounded brush. The three shades are Goldgasm, a golden highlighter aimed to give you that soft-focused, candle-lit glow; Pinkgasm, a glowing high blush designed to give you rosy pink cheeks; and Peachgasm, which delivers pinky-peach colour to the cheeks with a wash of a sun-kissed glow.

I did find all three colours to be quite similar in shade and also expected them to be a bit more shimmery on the skin.  The applicator makes it super easy to apply these to the cheeks and cheekbones since your squeeze them to allow the product to be dispensed in the sponge. I’m used to an out-of-this-world highlighter, but these are more of a subtle touch, which is great for those who don’t wear highlighters often or are looking for a more natural, flushed look. Since these are a liquid formula, they are perfect for summertime since I tend to gravitate more towards creams and liquids since they are more comfortable to wear on the skin as opposed to powder.

If powder if more your jam though, then you need to look into the Glowgasm Face Palette (C$95), which are two stunning palettes filled with two highlighters, a blush, and a bronzer for the ultimate cheek palette.

First off, this palette is stunning to look at. The outside of it features a beautiful crystal appearance and inside the products are designed to be eye-catching when opened. I received LoveGasm, which is the darker of the palettes. As for the powders themselves, there is a soft champagne (Light It), a rose gold highlight to layer up with (Glow It), a rosy blush (Pop It), and a neutral cocoa blush to contour (Bronze It).

Compared to other face palettes I own, I do have to say that you may want to go in with a heavy hand when using this. The powders are very sheer, which is great if you don’t want to go too overboard, but I found I had to really get my brush in there in order to see the colour on my skin. I think what they were trying to do with this palette is give you the effect of a filter, so it just subtly makes your skin that much better.

For those CT diehards, I would recommend purchasing both a Beauty Light Wand and the palette to really layer on the glow. I found I didn’t get the most blinding highlight from this collection, but that’s okay since that’s not everyone’s cup of tea. I think that this collection is perfect to have since it gives you more of a refined, everyday kind of glow that really will never go out of style.
