Famed makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury knew exactly when she was doing when she launched her eponymous brand in 2012. The extensive, gold-gilded lineup, which currently spans makeup (base, eyes, and lip) and skin care (cleansers, masks, serums, and creams) strikes the perfect balance between luxurious, effortless, and effective.
It’s no wonder that many of her products boast names like “Hollywood Flawless Filter,” “Airbrush Flawless,” and “Magic Vanish Colour” — they give you results without making your complexion look overdone. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Charlotte Tilbury products lend skin a natural glow and the color products tend to be silky and hydrating, so they never look cakey or emphasize texture. The brand is also no stranger to winning Best of Beauty and Readers’ Choice Awards, which we like to think are some of the highest compliments in the beauty world.
Aside from us, countless makeup artists, such as Tobi Henney and Vincent Oquendo, are ardent fans of Charlotte Tilbury products — especially the lipsticks. For example, Oquendo previously admitted he’s “kind of nuts about” the Hot Lips Lipstick in Tell Laura, a tangerine-tinged red. Makeup artist Quinn Murphy is a fan of the Lip Cheat Lip Liner in the iconic Pillow Talk shade and said that it’s “a great pinky-nude that gives light and soft definition.” That basically translates to a very wearable shade that’s worthy of the Met Gala red carpet, no big deal.
Even TikTok, which tends to skew toward a younger audience who loves a good steal, has fallen in love. So don’t be surprised if you see makeup artists and enthusiasts talking about the dew-inducing formulas on your For You Page. We think it’s safe to say that Charlotte Tilbury attracts both beauty newbies and experts, whether you prefer a more natural, all-over-glowy look or use them as base or finishing products.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up some of the best Charlotte Tilbury products — both classics and recent launches — so you know what’s worth your hard-earned money.
