Well, Thanksgiving is over and it's officially the Christmas season! My mom and I spent the weekend decorating for Christmas, and I ventured out on Saturday to Target and Bath & Body Works to grab some Christmas decor & candles.
The entire house is decked out and I'm so excited!
Also, did anyone notice a new look here at Royally Pink? I did some sprucing up and I'm VERY happy with it!
Now that we got that out of the way, the real reason for today's post is to talk about my favorite foundation, possibly ever.
I've been having a love affair with Charlotte Tilbury's products. I only have 2, because they are very expensive, and very luxurious but I just love everything about the products. From the packaging to the quality, everything about the brand is stunning.
A few months ago, the brand released their Magic Foundation. It comes in 15 shades, has SPF 15, and claims to leave a radiant finish but also gives a full coverage, weightless finish. The Nordstrom website says that the foundation is also good for dry & mature skin. It has anti aging properties so I think this is a foundation that anyone, any age can use. It's not geared toward one specific age group.
When I saw this on Nordstrom's website, I knew I had to have it. I was shopping around for a new liquid foundation and this is Charlotte's first "real" foundation (she has the Wonderglow, which is more like a tinted moisturizer), so I jumped at it. The $44 price tag is a bit high, but it's on par with other foundations.
I got the shade "4 Fair" and it's a pretty decent match. The bottle is frosted glass, with a gold cap and is totally luxurious. It's one of the prettiest, if not THE prettiest, foundations I own.
When I first applied it, I used a beauty blender and the finish was seamless, flawless, and medium-full coverage. It claims that it's a radiant finish and I can attest to that, but it's not super dewy or glowy. I have other foundations, like the Laura Geller Baked Liquid Radiance Foundation, that is ultra dewy but this "Magic Foundation" would work for someone with oily skin, in my opinion.
My skin looked flawless with this foundation, and that day, at work, I got so many compliments on my SKIN, not my makeup. People were in awe of how my makeup looked, and I don't think any foundation has ever given me that effect.
This foundation plays well with all other products, and it makes everything look better. It IS weightless and doesn't feel cakey or heavy on my skin.
If I had to choose one liquid foundation to own forever, it would surely be this one. My skin/makeup never look as good as it does when I where the Magic Foundation. It's definitely called Magic for a reason!
What is your holy grail foundation?
