Good things come to those who wait, and wait i did. Two years, TWO YEARS it's taken for Charlotte Tilbury to make it "all the way" up north to Newcastle, but she's finally here... and she's fabulous darlings. Her bright lights, rose gold packaging and army of Dolce Vita's, Rock Chick's and Golden Goddesses have pretty taken over the beauty hall - nobody puts MAC in the corner, except Fenwick Newcastle - he he.
So I came, got made up (£35 redeemable against products) and conquered the credit card. I need some time to stare at, I mean road test these beauties but for now, here's a little Tilbury porn...
There were two things that were always going to make it in my basket - Filmstar Bonze & Glow - every bit as good as I hoped it would be, my none-existent cheek bones have never looked so good and the sexy as hell Dolce Vita Luxury Eye Palette. Eye cheat was a surprise hit - a perfect flesh coloured eye pencil that quite literally cheats its way to brighter eyes and the iconic Rock n Kohl Liner in Bedroom Black could possibly be EVEN better than the Urban Decay 24/7 liners. Repeat after me "I will not buy another lipstick, I will not buy another lipstick" - a mantra that went straight out the window as soon as Penelope Pink touched my lips. And the mini miracle eye wand aka 8 hours sleep in two chicks, I never stood a chance.
So that's me living on porridge oats for the rest of the month, but at least I'll look like a screen siren!
