Charlotte Tilbury, Cheek to Chic Blush

So recently on a trip to Selfridges with my friend Megan I picked up a Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic blush, as soon as I heard about the Charlotte Tilbury makeup collection I knew it wouldn’t be too long before I picked up a few pieces to add to my makeup collection. Unfortunately it was much longer than I had hoped before I got to Selfridges but o my god was it worth the wait.

When I got to the Tilbury counter I was so overwhelmed by how pretty everything was I swatched a number of different products and just couldn’t decide so I figured I would give myself a little time to think about it.
I continued looking around the different counters and brands swatching stuff from Illamasqa, MAC, YSL, Nars and Shu Uemura but my eye kept being drawn to this product so I knew it was for me my decision was made and Megan agreed.

Charlotte Tilbury Ecstasy Cheek to Chic Blusher (£30.00 for 0.28 oz.) consists of an exterior shade that’s a warm, coral-orange with a soft, frosted finish, and then an interior shade that’s a pink-coral with gold shimmer.

Tilbury recommends applying the exterior shade across the cheeks in a larger sweep while concentrating the interior shade more on the apples of the cheek. Together, they create a warm, coral-orange with a satiny finish.


“Swish brush around the outer shade, tap off the excess, smile in a mirror then run brush flat on top of cheekbone to add structure”


“Dip tip of brush in the centre colour, tap off excess, pop onto apples of the cheeks to make them glow, blend seamlessly together”

The texture is very soft, silky, and finely-milled, though it can be slightly powdery at times. It does blend beautifully on the skin. The soft shimmer in the finish gives cheeks a glow that doesn’t emphasize pores.
Ecstasy wore well for seven and a half hours, but it was noticeably faded and somewhat patchy after eight hours. Normally, I see some slight fading but most blushes don’t turn too patchy.

My favourite aspect to the product was really the texture, which felt incredibly soft.

I honestly haven’t stopped wearing this little beauty since I bought it, I find myself reaching for it every day and I can’t wait to get my hands on more of the collection.

Have you tried anything from the Charlotte Tilbury collection, anything you recommend?
