Charlotte Tilbury’s new Magic Foundation has been raved about all over the internet. Taking 5 years to develop, this ‘magic’ bottle claims to reduce the appearance of acne, scarring and redness, as well as minimising pores and making skin look awake.
First off, this foundation was great at evening out redness, however I was surprised by the coverage. Reading many reviews, I found there was hardly any coverage at all and not the full coverage I had read about. One of my current favourite bases at the moment is Chanel’s Vitalumiere Aqua, which is fairly light. I’m not quite sure why, but CT’s foundation gave less coverage than this light base.
It was hard to blend and instead of blending in with the skin, looked a little cakey. Any dry patches I had, it stuck to like glue. The coverage was uneven and a little patchy. I tried using fingertips, a brush and Beauty Blender and it just wasn’t working for me. It seemed to disappear after a few hours. That was even after powdering.
Charlotte Tilbury’s products are always great quality and beautifully packaged, unfortunately Magic has to be added to my ‘disappointed products’ list. I am determined to see if I can make it work somehow and will let you know if I can.
If you do wish to try a great suits-all product from Charlotte then check out my review on Pillow Talk.
