Once in a while I love to try a new foundation and although I don't usually sway from Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua, I always like a more full coverage in the Autumn Winter months. I've been super excited by Charlotte Tilbury's range since it launched and investing in the Magic Foundation seemed to be the perfect place to start.
When this foundation says 'magic', it really does mean it. Commuting to London everyday has meant that my skin has started to look a little dishevelled recently and this formula has been the perfect solution to brightening my skin and covering up the dark circles under my eyes.
Despite being a full coverage foundation, this foundation feels weighless once applied to the skin and I've definitely noticed that this formula is great for hiding imperfections such as redness and dark eyes. With SPF15 and other skin enhancing properties, I really do feel as though I'm looking after my skin as opposed to adding a heavy layer of foundation.
When I looked at the shades online I thought I would be shade 1-2 as I have fairly pale skin, but after trying the foundation in-store I was actually advised to go for shade 4 which is a neutral peach shade for light to medium skin tones. This colour is slightly darker than my natural skin tone but blends really well and still looks the right shade with or without fake tan!
The price of this foundation is £29.50 which is pretty standard for a high-end foundation. So far I've only used two pumps per day and it lasts right through from AM to PM and I'm up at 5:45am which is says a lot about the staying power!
The packaging is also pretty beautiful. The bottle is glass, it has a fuss-free pump and a rose gold top, the only thing I would say is I do wish the lid was more secure, but aside from that this foundation is certainly magic and works wonder for me!
