Charlotte Tilbury Quick 'N Easy Red Carpet Party Look Makeup Set Swatches And Review


There are a couple seasons during the year that are my favorite; Awards Season ranking right up there at the top.  Yes, that time of year when celebs are nominated in all categories for the most coveted of artisan prizes.  There are winners and losers and behind all the flashes of the photogs are the people who create the beauty.  Charlotte Tilbury is the most in-demand makeup artist creating the gorgeous looks of the top A list stars.  Her team provides the most beautiful looks that I see on the carpets year after year.  She created an incredibly beautiful and innovative makeup and skincare line and I am fortunate to feature a Quick 'N Easy 5 Minute Makeup Look Set, (5 pc/$75) for you today.

The set I was sent is called Red Carpet Party.  The name and the press kit inspired me to do a series on both Snapchat and Instagram Stories that I called Red Carpet Sundays.  Utilizing the makeup set, plus other Charlotte Tilbury items that I already owned, I had a blast getting ready and watching shows with all of you, dishing the stars, the awards and all the beauty.  The PR Kit had a fun clap board to play with, too.  :)

The Quick N Easy 5 Minute Makeup Look set Red Carpet Party features a Mini Wonder Glow Instant Soft Focus  Beauty Flash.  This is a multi-use item and can be used under makeup, over foundation, or over Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream for a lasting glow.  The tube is 15 ml in weight and you can think of it as photoshop in a tube.  It smooths, blurs, brightens and gives you a nice glow.  It is an excellent primer to put down before your foundation.  A full sized 40 ml tube is $55.

The namesake of this set is the Matte Revolution Lipstick in Red Carpet Red. ($34).  This lipstick is a wearable stunner!!  It has 3D glowing pigments which create a luminous finish in a long wearing matte formula providing a lit-from-within look; the makeup look that Charlotte Tilbury is known for.  Both the look and the wear of the lipstick are incredible.  It's a totally wearable red and a comfortable matte formula.  I could never think of enough adjectives to describe this amazing futuristic formula.  You are receiving a full sized lipstick in the glorious rose gold Charlotte Tilbury signature tube.

Pair the lipstick with the included Kiss N Tell Lip Cheat lip liner, ($22).  These liners are iconic, providing great wear and yet are still comfortable.  Lip Cheats are waterproof, which I can attest to, and provide 6 hours of wear, to which I also concur.  These are the best lip liners I've used.  I have several in my stash.  This is a full sized product.

Line, smudge or smoke your eyes with the included full sized  Rock N Kohl eyeliner in Barbarella Brown, a nice rich nearly black brown, ($22).  It is waterproof and wears incredibly even on my runny allergy eye.  Allergy season is 12 months long in Phoenix, but I've never had any problems with unwanted smudging or disappearances by the Tilbury eyeliners.  They're not dry at all; they apply and blend like a comfortable dream and wear just like your favorite pair of jeans.

In the swatches, the Wonder Glow is pictured to the right, under the star below and above, it is under the line at the top.

The fifth item is a bronze makeup bag with rose gold lip kisses all over it.  It's gorgeous and holds a whole day's worth of makeup.  It measures about 5.5" x  3" x 2".  The zipper is the gorgeous signature rose gold.  I put everything from my C.T. makeup looks below in the bag and still had room for mascara, a concealer and a powder.

For my Red Carpet Sundays looks, I utilized a lot of products that I own in the Charlotte Tilbury line, along with the Red Carpet Party Look Makeup Set.

Isn't this the most incredible packaging?  If you saw my Highlighters of 2016 video or blog post, you might know that Charlotte Tilbury's Bar Of Gold was my favorite highlighter of 2016.  It is pictured at bottom left in the picture.  Next to it is the Light Wonder Youth Boosting Perfect Skin Foundation in #3 Fair.  The chocolate bronze circle is the Cheek To Chic blush Sex On Fire.  The retro looking compact at the top is face sculpting bronzer and highlighter duo Filmstar Bronze and Glow.

This is beautiful makeup even before you put it on.  Using these products, I look airbrushed and photoshopped even without filters.

It's totes amazeballs.  The whole look made me feel like I was a star who received the best Charlotte Tilburry application in order to walk the carpet.  Even without photoshop, I feel ready to meet Ryan Gosling.  I have a great imaginary life.  In it, I saw Ryan sitting nearby and did my best "hey, girl, HEY!"

I wondered, as I sat dressed to the nines, if Beyonce has to worry about the glare on her face from her jewelry.  And then I spy Meryl.  I see you, girl.

Thank goodness I had practiced my gracious loosing face as my imaginary lead actress role lost to Emma Stone.

I wouldn't normally post so many pictures of myself on a post, but I had a funny story in my head, so it just had to come out, right?  Just to show you what a photoshopped picture would look like so that you can compare the actual look to actual photoshop, here's a pic I messed with.  I think if you look again at the previous pictures, you can see how truly incredible the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow and Light Wonder foundation make my skin look in my real life.

Oh wait, did I say I lost the award?  No!!  There was an envelope mix-up!!  Here I am after the confusion thanking my fans and the amazing Charlotte Tilbury for my look all throughout awards season.
