Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation & The Retoucher

Leave a Comment

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation has received a lot of hype since it's release, and after giving a good going over- it really is worth the hype.

Five years in the making this is demo-matte full coverage foundation enriched with hyaluronic acid, laricyl and Vitamin C to give you brightened, plumped and protected skin with an added SPF15.

Hyaluronic Acid holds 1000x its weight in water and plumps up the skin to give you visibly youthful plumped up skin in just 1 hour.

Laricyl is a concentrated mushroom extract that tightens pores and firms the skin whilst packing it with hydration.

Vitamin C- This is supercharged, and the first time it's been used is in the foundation. It fights against free radicals and pollution, and helps rebuild collagen if used constantly for a supple skin and reduces ages spots by 75% in 4 months, and reduces acne if used for 9 weeks. Pretty impressive.

Even though I don't understand everything in this products and what it does in great depth- it's still a bloody lovely foundation. As someone that doesn't usually go for a full coverage foundation this feels like a second skin and not all heavy. A completely flawless finish.
It covers the following:

"Acne & Acne Scarring

  • Tightens pores and reduces shine
  • Minimizes oil production after 9 weeks

  • Redness, Rosacea, Discoloration & Melasma 

  • Weightlessly covers any discoloration or imperfections 
  • Helps reduce over-production of melanocytes (which cause pigmentation issues like melasma) 

  • Mature Skin: Lines, Deep Wrinkles, Age Spots & Thread Veins

  • Smoothes the appearance of wrinkles in just 1 hour
  • Reduces the appearance of age spots by 75%

  • Normal to Tired, Dull Skin
    Antioxidant formula rejuvenates skin from within for a rested, refreshed look"

    The Retoucher is another product that I picked up when I was in the John Lewis store on Oxford Street- here's a link to the whole story and why I ended up with this HERE.

    It contains Lipo-Siliconic compound which acts like an invisible plaster on the skin so can be used to treat and conceal sun spots, blemishes and redness. Black Tea derivative is super packed with vitamins and fills in hollowed areas of skin to make it appears smooth. Finally it boasts a hydration complex to keep skin plumped up and hydrated. I use it under my eyes mostly- more like a Touche Eclat pen and use something like Nars Creamy Concealer on blemishes- but i'll give The Retoucher a go on these kind of areas from now on.

    It's a beautiful products but am shocked to see that it only contains 3.5ml of product. This literally blew my mind and how much packaging plays a part in all of this. It's madness.
    It's nice as a treat but if you were to buy either of these items, I'd suggest you opt for the Magic Foundation.

    They are available now from

    Magic Foundation is £29.50 and The Retoucher is £25.00 - so for an extra £4.50 you get 26.5ml more product! No brainer.
