Discovering the Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation


I have wanting to buy the Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation since Mother’s Day 2017, the reason being that last year on mother’s day I took my mum to the CT counter in Selfridges to get a makeover. Of course, I couldn’t just stand there so; naturally, I also booked one for myself.
I got my makeup done by the very talented Lucy Jones. She used the Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation, and I was very impressed. It took me a few months to purchase a bottle as I have been in love with the Chanel Healthy Glow Cushion Foundation for ages and I just couldn’t think about being unfaithful to it, but seeing as it is £43 for 10g, I couldn’t justify getting another one for daily use.

Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation


When I finally got my hands on the Light Wonder Foundation, I was pleasantly surprised. First of all, I do love the packaging. It’s not the most glamorous, but it is the most practical and travel-friendly. The foundation comes in a lightweight, 40 ml plastic bottle with a narrow nozzle which makes it really easy to squeeze out the desired amount. The bottle is also seethrough, and I find it very handy to see when the product is running low. It's really frustrating when my foundation suddenly runs out, and I don’t have any back-ups.

I was pleasantly surprised by initial application. The name suggests that this is a  light coverage foundation, but in fact, it has more coverage than the other light coverage foundations I own. Honestly, I would say it’s a medium coverage foundation that feels like a light coverage foundation. It’s really comfortable to wear and looks very natural on my skin. It does slightly catch on the dry patches in between my brows, but then again I haven’t found a foundation that doesn’t, and it’s only an issue when I don’t hydrate my skin enough. It does a fantastic job at evening out the skin tone and even though it doesn’t completely cover up my acne scars (they are very dark), it does a great job at fading them out. The foundation works by diffusing light and smoothing out imperfections. The finish is slightly dewy but not too much giving you a slight glow without any shimmer. Don’t be scared if like me you have oily skin as it doesn’t make your skin feel any oilier.
 It’s also said to have youth-boosting actives that reduce wrinkles, but I can’t say much about that as I am lucky enough to have developed wrinkles yet.
I love how easy it is to blend. I normally use a stippling brush, and it doesn’t leave any brush marks at all, although I love going over it with a beauty blender. It doesn’t awkwardly cake up throughout the day

The foundation has 10 shades which isn’t overly impressive when comparing to other brands such as Nars or Fenty Beauty, but you do have a good selection. I was overjoyed when matched to shade 4 as it is a perfect match for me and that never happens. Foundations tend to be always slightly too warm on me. I use shade 3

This foundation contains SPF 15 which isn’t very useful in my opinion, when adding SPF to a product I wouldn't go for less than SPF 30, but that’s just my personal opinion.

 It’s pretty evident that I love this foundation, I’m thrilled that I finally gave it a go and it has definitely become a staple in my makeup stash.
