Have you been Naughty or Nice this year? I’ve been a bit of both so i’m hoping that Santa still pays me a little visit. It’s no secret that I love Beauty Calendars and Charlotte Tilbury. Put the two together and you have one very happy Bunny. I didn’t think I’d be able to have the calendar this year, but the lovely folks at Charlotte Tilbury popped one in the post for me.
The Charlotte Tilbury Naughty & Nice Magic Box is 12 drawers of loveliness and I absolutely love it. Whether you’re a die-hard fan girl like me, or want to discover more of the brand then this is the Advent Calendar for you.
The packaging is very similar to last yer’s World Of Legendary Parties and has cute little illustrated drawers, each containing either a full-size or travel-sized product. OK, so let’s get the awkward bit out of the way … the price.
This calendar will set you back £150.00 … now before you all throw your hands up in horror, consider the brand. Charlotte Tilbury is more towards the higher end of the market and her products aren’t the cheapest anyway. I mean they’re not Tom Ford expensive, but they’re not drugstore by a long shot. It works out at £12.50 per drawer and 4 of the drawers contain full-size products. Also, the mini products included aren’t tiny sizes, so I do think you’re getting your money’s worth.
Look at the Zoella calendar. That’s £50.00 for 12 products and most of them are utter tat, so suddenly the price of this doesn’t seem too bad. You’re paying for quality and for beautiful products. Also, as this isn’t designed like a traditional Advent Calendar, it would also make a beautiful Christmas gift.
So enough waffling on from me, let’s take a look at what you get.
WONDERGLOW – Travel Size
Aaaah Wonderglow – the stuff of dreams. I use this almost every day and have a drawer full of these travel minis as well as the full size. It’s a light-reflecting face primer that adds a beautiful radiance to your face. I use it as a primer under my foundation and sometimes on top of my makeup to add a little bit more glow. On the days when you want to go makeup free, a bit of this on will make you look healthier with a natural radiance.
MAGIC CREAM – Travel Size
I adore Magic Cream. It’s Charlotte’s iconic moisturiser that is packed full of anti-ageing properties. Now I know that some people think this is basically Nivea Cream and I have to disagree. Magic Cream does something special to your skin and provides you with the perfect base for your makeup. It leaves your skin feeling hydrated and looking healthy and so much better. I genuinely do not understand people who don’t get on with this … it really is a little pot of Magic.
SUPERMODEL BODY – Travel Size
Admittedly this is probably the one Charlotte Tilbury product that I don’t use a lot. Charlotte describes it as shape wear lingerie for the skin. It is a soothing, slimming and hydrating body shimmer that firms and sculpts. Imagine contouring your limbs and you have Supermodel Body. Your limbs look longer, leaner and have a nice subtle shimmer to them. I do use this in the Summer, but I prefer to keep my body covered up, so I don’t reach for it too much.
ROCK N KOHL AMBER MOON – Mini Size
I first got this eyeliner with a single shadow and it is beautiful. It’s a limited edition amber bronze kohl liner that applies like a dream. The Rock n Kohl liners are described as being a liquid kohl and they are so creamy. When you’re using this you’ll find that it just glides on without pulling or dragging at your eyes. I think this formula has to be my favourite for a kohl liner.
FULL FAT LASHES – Mini Size
Holy Grail – yep I went there. Full Fat Lashes is probably my most favourite mascara in all the world. With a gorgeous glossy black finish, it’s a 5-in-1 mascara that does it all. It curls, it separates, it adds volume, it lifts, it adds drama … it is that good. Whilst I don’t mind Legendary Lashes, I have to say that Full Fat is far more superior and is one of Charlotte’s best products.
MULTI MIRACLE GLOW – Travel Size
Oh I love this stuff. You can use it as a cleanser, a mask and even a balm and your skin is left baby soft. I love removing my makeup with this as it feels nice and nourishing on the skin, plus I love the scent of it. Once a week, I will cover my face in Multi Miracle Glow and leave it on for about 10 minutes. To remove it, I just wipe if away with a cotton pad and the difference in how my skin feels is amazing. Also, if you’ve got dry or irritated skin, whack a bit on to soothe and calm the skin down. It’s such a versatile product and I’m obsessed.
COLOUR CHAMELEON MESMERISING MINK – Full Size
Whilst I’m not normally a fan of eyeshadow pencils, I do love me a Colour Chameleon. They work beautifully on their own and blend out like a dream, or as an eyeshadow base. They make your eyeshadows pop and stay on longer and add something really special to you eye look. Each Colour Chameleon is designed to work well with a certain eye colour, but I’ve got them all and find they work well with all eye colours.
LIP LUSTRE UNLEASH ME – Full Size
Charlotte’s Lip Lustres are gorgeous glosses with a high shine lacquer finish. Unleash Me is a beautiful deep plum shade that is great for this time of year. Whilst they can be slightly sticky (like most glosses), they feel comfortable to wear and look so pretty. I like to wear them alone but they also work so well layered on top of lipstick.
GODDESS SKIN CLAY MASK – Travel Size
Bunnies, meet the nicest clay mask you ever did see. It is extremely nourishing on the skin and leaves you with lifted, brighter and tighter skin with a nice dewy finish. There’s nothing I enjoy more than slapping this on my face and curling up with a book and a cup of tea for 15 minutes whilst the mask gets to work. If you’ve never tried this then you really need to.
MATTE REVOLUTION WALK OF SHAME – Full Size
We all know how much I love my Tilbury lipsticks (I have them all). I love how they always include a full size lipstick in the calendar each year and this year they chose a beauty. Walk of Shame is a stunning berry rose matte that I absolutely love. With the Matte Revolution lipsticks, you get the gorgeous matte finish but without any drying on the lips. They’re creamy yet pigmented and the packaging is so lovely too. I am obsessed with her lipsticks.
TAKE IT ALL OFF – Travel Size
I do like a good eye makeup remover and Take It All Off is one I’ve been using for almost two years now. It’s an oil-based two toned remover, so you have to give it a bit of a shake before using. It doesn’t sting or irritate the eyes and effectively removes your makeup including mascara without having to rub. I find this to be quite underrated as it really is a lovely product to use.
EYES TO MESMERISE JEAN – Full Size
Like with eyeshadow pencils, I never used to be a fan of cream eyeshadows. However, the Eyes To Mesmerise shadows are so beautiful to use. They’re very creamy but don’t gather into any lines and work well alone or under powder shadows. Jean is a pretty champagne pink shade that I love to use (I’m now on my second pot) and it’s a great addition to the calendar.
So whilst the price tag of the Charlotte Tilbury Naughty & Nice Magic Box may be a little bit naughty, the contents are certainly nice. It is available to buy here and really would make the nicest gift for someone … or as a treat for yourself.
