Charlotte Tilbury Launch: What I'm Buying

Today (or, as I'm writing this, I guess it's technically tomorrow) is the day that Charlotte Tilbury's makeup line launches in the good ol' US of A. If you're anything like me, you've been eagerly awaiting this launch since the line debuted in the UK last September, obsessively checking out UK bloggers' reviews of products in order to build your own wishlist (what's that you say? Oh, that's not normal? Yeah probably not).

For those of you who don't know Charlotte Tilbury, she's one of the most famous makeup artists in the business. She's done makeup for just about every A-list star there is, and her iconic looks have found themselves on the covers of every big magazine. Last year she launched her own makeup and beauty line in the UK, with twelve different looks (ranging from the Ingénue to the Vintage Vamp) that list all of her different products you would need to achieve it. Her makeup line is meant to be accessible to everyone from makeup newbies to experts, and offer some of the best ingredients and formulas that she's discovered from her many years in the business.

Just about everything looks amazing from her line, and I'm trying to limit myself from buying absolutely everything by just picking a few favorites to buy on launch day (with many more purchases to come, I'm sure). Specifically, I adore her look the Ingénue and I've found myself drawn to many of the products from that look. So while I've changed up a few, I used that look as a guide and picked four favorites that I plan to pick up on day one:

1) Beach Stick in Las Salinas  - Speaking of the bright and colorful products, this gorgeous pink color stick (for both cheeks and lips) is definitely a flashy piece I can't want to try out. Charlotte's Beach Sticks were getting rave reviews throughout the blogosphere this past summer, and I jealously looked on as I saw many gorgeous pictures of UK bloggers rocking this color on their cheeks. I'm a huge blush fan and this color seems to be just the perfect shade for a natural flush of pink. Plus I think the packaging is just to die for, I don't know what it is about products in stick form that make me go nutty but there's something about them..

2) Light Wonder Foundation in Fair 4  -I've frequently heard this compared to my HG of foundations, the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua. It's described as having an almost water-y consistency that provides a natural looking light-to-medium coverage, my favorite. I'm a little worried about ordering this online, because I'm not terribly sure what shade I would be, but from my research it looks like Fair 4 is a pretty safe shade to go with, and since it's described as having a fairly forgiving formula I feel it's worth giving a try! This is possibly the product I'm most excited for, because I'm such a base fanatic. While everyone else is going for the bright, colorful guys, this is one I'm absolutely psyched to get my hands on.

3) The Retoucher in Fair 2 - One would think I have enough concealers at this point, but I really think I'm going to have to add this to my collection after reading some stellar reviews. It's been described as having the coverage of the Clé de Peau concealer with the lightness and hydration of By Terry Touche Veloutee. I mean....how can I not give that a try?

4) Color Chameleon in Bronzed Garnet - Another stick product (they're just so gorgeous and handy!), and this one is a bronze-y eyeshadow that is targeted for green eyes. Now, I'm a weird case when it comes to eye shadows' targeted for a specific eye color, because my eyes constantly change from green to blue depending on what I'm wearing. I've always thought of them as leaning more towards a sea green, but then someone will compliment my "blue eyes" and I just have no idea. Any-who, this gorgeous bronze color looks perfect for adding just a hint of shadow around my eyes, or even for going all out at night (by which I mean spending the night in watching Netflix with fancy makeup on). There are so many colors in this range that I cannot wait to try for myself, but for now this color stood out as my favorite for a first go around.

So what products are you guys planning to pick up from the line (or, if you're in the UK, what've you picked up already)?
