Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Comparison Swatches

I'm a Charlotte Tilbury newbie. I had my first CT product few months ago, I bought the Matte Revolution lipstick in Bond Girl and the famous Airbrush Flawless Finish powder. CT makeup is expensive BUT it was worth the splurge!

Recently I received a sample of the Wonder Glow face primer, and I was so excited to try another CT product!

According to Charlotte's website:

Darlings, my Wonderglow face primer features ingredients to give your complexion an instant pick-me-up to create an effortlessly dewy look. 100%* of users agreed that their skin was radiant and appeared more youthful after applying my Wonderglow! 
WHAT MAKES WONDERGLOW MAGIC:
• Use the Wonderglow face primer underneath your foundation OR on its own for a relaxed dewy look.
• State of the art fluorescent core light diffuser absorbs UV particles from the sun and reemits their energy as visible light, illuminating your skin.
• Soft focus ceramic microspheres smooth over wrinkles and imperfect skin tone, creating an anti-ageing optical illusion for a flawless, poreless complexion.
• Anti-aging BioNymph Peptide Complex stimulates collagen to promote elasticity in your skin.
• Ideal for those seeking an effortlessly dewy look.
• Paraben-free
• Fill 40ml

The full size retails for $55 at NordstromSince this is an illuminating base, I compared it with the Heimish Artless Glow Base primer and the MAC Strobe Cream in Pinklite.

 Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Sample



CT Wonder Glow has a gold, champagne color with tiny sparkles, compared to the MAC and Heimish which has more of a white color. When swatched heavily, you can definitely see the color difference.


When blended, the CT wonder glow disappears into the skin and it leaves little chunky glitters, compared to the two which gives more of an iridescent finish. The texture isn't sticky which I like, but the product really doesn't show up on the skin.


My thoughts:
I was really disappointed with this product. I thought it would be like the MAC Strobe Cream where it would make you look dewy and fresh, but I really couldn't see the product once I blended it. This retails for $55 which is expensive, but honestly I wouldn't even buy it even if it was for $10. I love Charlotte Tilbury makeup but this was a disappointment for me.

Have you tried Wonder Glow? What are your thoughts?

XOXO,

Dupe Alert! A'PIEU Water Light Tint VS YSL Vinyl Cream Lip Stain

Dupe alert! A'Pieu Water Light Tint in RD03 ($8.98) vs YSL Vinyl Cream Lip Stain in 407 ($36). 





A'PIEU WATER LIGHT TINT IN RD03




YSL 407 VS APIEU RD03

Swatched side by side you can see that the YSL is a bit more brown, but very unnoticeable once you wear both on the lips. The consistency is the same, and both leave a nice tint. For only $8.98, the Apieu tint is a great dupe! What do u guys think?

Guerlain Meteorites Birthday Candle Pearls


These little cute powder beads always take me back when I was a little girl, and my mama had a similar blush beads on her vanity and I was just amazed at how cute and pretty it was.

Feelunique had a huge sale so I was excited to order this. ๐Ÿ’– this is the Guerlain Meteorites Birthday Candle Pearls. It has that signature Guerlain scent and it smells so nice.

 Swatches:


Heavily swatched



Blended


My thoughts: 

Okay, what is this supposed to do? Is it a finishing powder or a highlighter? Haha! I honestly don’t know LOL. When applied on my face you can’t actually notice the tiny sparkles unless you’re out in the sun. I think this is “that” product that looks good in your vanity but product wise, it’s just okay. ☺️ would i repurchase? Sure if they’re on sale LOL.

This is the Rouge Velvet Lipstick from @Bourjoismiddleeast in the shade Brique-รก-brac. This is their newest lipstick collection and it’s a lipstick version of their previous Rouge Velvet liquid lip.

I love these types of brick red colors and I swatched it together with the Rouge Velvet liquid lip in the shade Beau Brun, and to my surprise it looks like the same shade! Hahaha!






Why do I always keep on buying the same lip color?! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Does this every happen to you?
