For this week's post I've decided to do a review of Charlotte Tilbury 'From Cheek to Chic' blusher, which is one of my most recent purchases and my first from this brand. Well, I say purchases, but I got it bought for me as as a birthday gift, even though my birthday isn't until August! (Lucky me!) Just picture me with puppy dog eyes!
Ever since Charlotte Tilbury concession hit Selfridges in Birmingham, I was drawn to the brand. I like Charlotte's unique approach of creating complete makeup looks and laying out all the products used for you to buy. It's especially great for people who may not know how to pull a look together themselves. Plus, her packaging is flawless and so pretty! The gold really adds a touch of luxe and makes the products so easily identifiable as Charlotte Tilbury.
Back to the blusher - I got it in 'The Climax' and it is such a gorgeous colour! Once applied it really gives a sculpted look. Because my complexion is of medium skin tone, I just preferred the slightly darker tone of this blusher compared to the others in the collection. I can only describe it as a peachy bronze with the centre giving a splash of pink. When built up, the colour also gives off a shimmery effect.

The blusher is also described as 'Swish and Pop' with the idea being you swish your blusher brush around the outside and apply to the cheek bone, and then pop it into the middle section and apply to the apples of your cheeks.
It is a bit pricey at £30, however the quality is clear and my experience is that you generally do get what you pay for when it comes to makeup. It is very pigmented so I can imagine it will last you a very long time before you have to repurchase and blends nicely onto the skin. The blusher lasted me most of the day before I decided to reapply in the evening.
Overall, a great product, and as my first product from the brand, really has me sold. Eek, is this the start of another love affair? Anyway I would definitely recommend!
Have you bought anything from the Charlotte Tilbury range? Were you impressed?
