If you haven’t already heard, Charlotte Tilbury has launched in Sephora Singapore. The luxury British brand, founded by the celebrity makeup artist-turned-beauty mogul, is best known for bestselling makeup like the Luxury Eyeshadow Palette, Matte Revolution Lipstick and Airbrush Flawless Foundation, and innovative skincare including celebrity-favourites Magic Cream and the Dry Sheet Mask, as well as the Goddess Cleansing Duo and Clay Mask.
The Tilbury beauty counters here can be found in seven Sephoras across the island, with the one in ION Orchard being the grandest—think a Magic Skin Bar, Makeup Revolution Bar, Lip Bar and a gleaming 10 Looks Wardrobe, featuring a collection of colour-curated “characters” with full face makeup to match every mood, style and personality. At the Lip Bar, you can wear your favourite celebrity’s shade as well, from Amal Clooney’s Amazing Amal and Carina Lau’s Carina’s Star, to JK Magic, named after the one and only J.K. Rowling.
Here’s what’s at the top of our Charlotte Tilbury shopping list:
If models and actresses love slicking this on before going on stage or in front of the camera, you know it works. A plumping, glow-boosting moisturiser that you can layer under your makeup, this is formulated with a “magic 8” of skin-rejuvenating ingredients: Brightening vitamin C and E; essential hydrator hyaluronic acid; moisturising camellia and rosehip oils; luscious shea butter; aloe vera to soothe and smooth; calming frangipani flower extract; and BioNymph Peptide Complex, which boasts the ability to stimulate collagen production, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and help fight free radicals.
This hybrid skincare foundation promises a “flawless, poreless” complexion with a weightless, weather-proof, full coverage formula that sets in place with a radiant matte finish. It comes in 44 shades concocted with a Magic Beauty Skin Algorithm that colour-syncs with skin’s over and undertones, and has fortifying ingredients like hydrating MossCellTec; AirCool for that all-day fresh feeling; C.T. Defense, which shields against pollutants; and serum-levels of Replexium, a skincare compound of two patented peptides that are clinically proven to reduce wrinkles by up to 22 percent after eight weeks of use.
This lipstick formula delivers long-wearing, highly pigmented colour with a cashmere-soft matte finish. We love Pillow Talk and Red Carpet Red, but also the limited edition Hot Lips Matte Revolution Lipstick in Super Cindy, a universally flattering warm taupe (inspired by Cindy Crawford!) takes things to the next level, because it fuses with all lip tones making it a breeze to create an illusion of fuller lips for an effortlessly sultry pout.
It’s easy to go over-the-top with this liquid highlighter in a tube, but that’s ok, because its Glow Gel dewy formula is fluid and blendable, with pearly pigments and lindera extract that mimics skin’s natural glow. Velvety Silica and Sensorial Oil, too, enhance the soft-focused glow effect and silky-soft touch, which you can apply precisely with the soft cushion pad applicator on cheeks, nose bridge and décolletage.
This clay mask has major skin-brightening and -smoothing in mind, with a formula that combines Kaolin Clay and Sweet Almond Oil that first deeply nourishes and gently detoxifies skin by drawing out impurities, product buildup and excess sebum from pores without stripping skin of its natural oils. It also sweeps away dead skin cells without any irritation while a cocktail of botanical extracts, vitamins and peptides infuse skin with calming, glow-boosting hydration.
This highly pigmented, glossy-finish, smudge-proof eyeliner is a key product used in Charlotte’s bedtime makeup look: “I use this to create a more almond-shaped eye, it instantly makes my eyes look lifted and seductive”. Designed for precise, smooth application, this comes with a fine-tipped calligraphy brush applicator, the Shodo Pen, which creates “the perfect angled flick”.
Another must-have for Charlotte’s sultry eye looks, this mascara sets out to create a false lash effect with good curl, separation, volume and length. Its fine-tipped bristles coat and separate every single strand with glossy black buildable colour that doesn’t flake off when dry.
This is the cult favourite eyeshadow quad that’s loved for its mix of shimmer-matte textures and rich pigments that can create everything from a sun-kissed golden look to sultry smokey eyes. Our favourite is Pillow Talk, obviously, for its dusky rose and soft neutral hues, but when a full beat is in order, reach for The Bella Sofia, with a smouldering brown, deep terracotta, glistening champagne and a high-wattage glittery gold.
