Charlotte Tilbury Beach Sticks & Film Stars on the Go: Review & Swatches

I want to say I made my first Charlotte Tilbury Order in March or so of this year. I have until this week bought most of it off Selfridges or Charlotte’s website. I will be adding more Charlotte Tilbury stuff in the future. For now I have the Beach Sticks in Ibiza, Moon Beach & Formentera, as well as the new Film Stars on the Go in All About Eve & Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I have asked their customer service and Beach Sticks are permanent while the Film Stars on the Go are limited. I haven’t seen them on a US website yet, but Beach Sticks will definitely be coming along with the new Matte Revolution lipsticks I’m dying to try. I’ve almost broke down twice and made a UK order to get the matte lipsticks, but for now I will try to wait…

The Beach Sticks have a nice vanilla scent and are multiple use products for use on lips and cheeks. They are 0.23 oz and smaller than I thought they would be. They come in rose gold metallic twist up and down sticks. They remind me of NARS Multiples the original regular ones, except smaller product wise and a touch more emollient. It’s a cream product so on cheeks it last maybe 6 hours or so, but it’s easy to carry and reapply. They are more comfortable on my lips than the NARS Multiples are so that’s a plus. On my lips they are like a creamy matte.

Formentera is my favorite and is the smoothest. It’s a neutral rose that’s not shimmery and has the best wear of the three. Moon Beach is NARS Orgasm-esque. Shimmery peach with micro glitter. It applies patchy on my hand but blends even. I use it for a highlighter it’s almost too pale for my cheeks plus I’m not a shimmer blush fan. Ibiza is the newest one I got, it’s a bronze shimmer with micro glitter. I am not a fan of the micro glitter in most things. So I really love Fortmentera and mean to check out the other cream ones once they get stateside. The other two would be much nicer without the micro glitter.

L to R: Ibiza, Moon Beach, Formentera.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstars On the Go Palettes are a duo cream eyeshadow and cream lip & cheek product. I have All About Eve & Breakfast at Tiffany’s. They are limited edition. The cream eyeshadow is like any cream eyeshadow to me, creases in a few hours. Reminds me of NARS cream eyeshadows. This is not a cream to powder shadow. The compact is small enough for you to take it with you and touch up which is what I do. These creased on me within 2 hours even with Urban Decay’s Eye Primer Potion. I did find adding a clear finishing powder over one layer of eyeshadow, then adding another layer of eyeshadow over, made them last longer without creasing.

The cream lip & cheek sides are non shimmery creams. They are thick, creamy and emollient. They are a bit tacky or sticky on the cheeks as they don’t dry down, this also makes them not as long lasting as even the Beach Sticks. It works on the lips as it’s emollient, it’s not drying and adds a subtle tint. Breakfast at Tiffany’s has a bronze shimmery eye with a cream coral lip/cheek. All About Eve has a shimmery taupe eye with a neutral to cool pink cheek/lip. Not a must have but was fun for summer and an easy palette.

L to R: All About Eve, Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
