Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow - Instant Soft Focus Beauty Flash

If you're looking for something to give your skin a glow under foundation, I have just the thing! The Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Instant Soft Focus Beauty Flash is a product I won in a giveaway. If I'm honest, it's not a product I would have picked myself, even though I've lusted after pretty much every other product by Charlotte Tilbury.

The reason I wouldn't have picked it, is that it's quite a dark golden product that looks like it would be awful for my porcelain skintone. Don't worry, I was totally wrong!

Yes, this is a warm toned, golden liquid that is full of shimmer but it doesn't look dark on my skin at all. It blends out to be colourless on my skin but it leaves behind a beautiful shimmer. It is far too glittery on its own though. That's why I use it under foundation. It creates an extremely smooth base for foundation which is absolutely perfect for my normally dehydrated skin. This allows makeup to look a lot more flawless as it feels quite moisturising. It's really lightweight though and doesn't leave my skin greasy at all.

When you've applied foundation on top of this, you don't see any of the shimmer, only a gorgeous glow and radiance. I really love wearing this as a foundation primer and I would totally pay the £38.50 (Selfridges) to replace it if I ran out. I can tell this is going to last me for a long time though as you only need to use a little bit and the nozzle doesn't let you dispense too much in one go. Amazing stuff!

Have you tried this product?
Do you use anything similar under your foundation?

  5. I love illuminating products and this looks so lovely when it is on. I have far too many primers on the go at the moment to justify another purchase though!

  11. I love how it looks, the darker golden shade makes it look different! I love illuminating primers, especially to mix them with heavier foundations, and CT always makes me want all the products, lol! :) xx

  12. I always mix a liquid highlighter into my foundation so it doesn't look flat but hadn't considered this one before. It looks very pretty but it is very expensive! xx
