With NYFW officially over, it’s time to hop right back into our regularly-scheduled content!
I probably have around 15 to 20 foundations, but no matter how many I receive I am always so excited to try out new formulas and releases from brands. You guys know I have a lot of Charlotte Tilbury products, and for the most part, I’ve loved everything that the British makeup artist has come out with. The one product I didn’t have in my collection from her yet though.. a foundation.
Luckily she just released a new one, the Magic Airbrush Foundation (C$53), and the brand was so kind to send over one of the shades. This was the foundation I actually used during Fashion Week, and I have to say that it totally blew me away.
The Magic Airbrush Foundation, available in a staggering 44 different shades from light to dark, delivers flawless and poreless-looking skin. The formula is high-coverage and promises to say on all day, feel weightless, and give you a natural matte finish.
This foundation actually goes deeper than just giving you amazing-looking skin. The formula includes skincare ingredients, including Magic REPLEXIUM to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by up to 22 per cent after eight weeks of use, MossCellTec No. 1 to boost hydration by up to 216 per cent, and AirCool for an instant fresh feel while you wear it.
Like I said, I completely fell in love with this foundation. Not only did it make my skin look amazing, but I really put it to the test, running around and sweating during Fashion Week. This foundation not only didn’t budge or smudge, but it also stayed in place all day long, even while running between shows and waiting for the subways (the brand does say it’s sweat proof, humidity proof, water proof, and transfer resistant… and trust me, I put all those claims to the test). The finish was very high coverage and it didn’t feel heavy on the skin. I would also say that it’s very breathable and comfortable once applied. My skin didn’t feel tight or irritable after wearing it for long periods of time.
I paired the new foundation with her new Magic Vanish Colour Corrector (C$38), which I got in the shade Medium. The Magic Vanish Colour Corrector comes in a teeny-tiny compact that is designed to colour correct, neutralize, and smooth out pigmentation and brighten the appearance of the under-eye area. Apply this product with your finger after you do your foundation and before your concealer to correct any pigmentation poking through and to smooth out the look of your skin.
What really makes it magic is the ingredients in the product. The formula includes flavonoids to help disguise the appearance of under-eye bags, carnauba wax for a smooth application, mica for a brightening effect, and microspheres to make it all blendable.
The Magic Vanish Colour Corrector is available in three other shades as well: fair, tan, and deep. Tan and deep are red coloured and are designed for those who have a darker skin tone. I don’t think that this product is that necessary for most people’s makeup bags. If you suffer from intense pigmentation or dark under eyes, then I would look at picking it up, but I think a concealer would do for most people out there.
Overall, I love these two products (especially the foundation) and highly recommend you stop by the Charlotte Tilbury counter in case you are on the hunt for new face products, or just want to try something new and fabulous.
Have you tried one of Charlotte Tilbury’s foundations?
