Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow: Review & Swatches

I bought Charlotte Tilbury’s Wonderglow Instant Soft-Focus Beauty Flash from the UK website a few months ago. I thought it would be too much for me shimmer wise but did it anyway. When I got it it was nice to see it’s a clear base with a champagne/gold shimmer in it. So it’s not too much for me shimmer wise. I wear it over primer under my foundation. I have mixed it with foundation too. I use my Armani Fluid Sheers the same way. The texture is a gel and thicker than the Armani Fluid Sheers. I did try this as a liquid highlight over foundation and it was OK but like most liquids over a liquid it helped remove some of my foundation. I have not tried it with the new mini micro Beauty Blender, maybe this helps this problem. We shall see…

It has a faint scent, not too overpowering. I have a hard time with By Terry so this is much less than that scent wise. Not scent free though definite rose/floral scent. It’s a 40mL tube and using it as much as I have I still haven’t put a major dent in it, so that’s good. I don’t use it everyday so I can’t speak to it’s supposed skincare effects. I only need to use a small less than pea size amount to cover my face.

This is sheered out on my arm, as you can see not a shimmer fest, just a light shimmer:

Update 6/3/15: I wanted to add that I have recently expanded my review on this some in a more recent post, if you want to read more about it click here.
