To Buy Or Not To Buy- Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation

I was sorting through my makeup collection when I came across a sample of a Charlotte Tilbury foundation that I must have got given when I last ordered from the website. It's a sample of Charlotte's Magic Foundation in the shade 3 Fair/Pale. So I thought I'd give it a try.

First off I realised that this shade was a great colour choice for my skin tone as it matched my skin pretty much perfectly which was great. It applied very well and smoothed over all my pores and considering I didn't put any concealer on it actually covered my spots and blemishes reasonably well. When I applied it I noticed that it had a slightly tacky feeling to it which was good actually as it made me feel like it would last on my skin as it felt like it wasn't going to slip and slide around my face. It leaves you with a satin finish so it's not super matte or too glowy, however I still powdered my face after putting it on as I know that no matter how good a foundation is it will still disappear if I don't apply powder to it.

In terms of staying power it stayed on well for most of the day, however it did disappear a bit around and on the nose area and my skin did look a bit more dewy towards the end of the day. For that reason I wouldn't buy it, or at least not straightaway as I feel for the price it should last a bit longer as in the foundation shouldn't disappear off parts of the face. Maybe I could give it a go when it's less hot outside and when my skin is a bit drier like during Autumn and Winter but I still think it's a good foundation and if you like your high end foundations it's definitely one to try out.
