Charlotte Tilbury is a legend when it comes to makeup. If you aren’t familiar with her products, now’s the time to get to know them! She has just released her new Charlotte Tilbury Contour and Highlight Wands which are amazing! Use these contour wands and you’ll have killer cheekbones in no time! With Kim Kardashian recently releasing her own contour sticks, Charlotte Tilbury has brought some healthy competition to the table:)
The Contour Wand is a cream-based contour, it comes with its own cushion applicator attached. I love this feature because it makes it super easy to blend the contour properly. The contour wand is perfect for everyone, from beginners to professionals. It makes contouring really easy and fun. You also don’t need to worry that you haven’t blended the contour properly because it’s hard to go wrong with it. Yes, it’s that easy to blend!
The Contour Wand also has a unique way to be used. When you want to apply the bronzer simply twist the tube to ‘On’ and squeeze the liquid out. For blending simply twist the tube to ‘Off’ and blend away! It couldn’t be any easier than that. The contour applies very easily and is buildable for higher coverage. The texture is really lovely and soft, once applied it’s hard to see you’re wearing any contour at all. That’s the beauty of a cream contour, especially a good one like this Charlotte Tilbury Contour Wand!
The Contour Wand comes in 2 colours, light to medium and medium to dark. It’s not the biggest selection of colours but they are ok for most skin tones. We can always hope that Charlotte Tilbury will add a few more shades to the collection in the near future.
Also known as the beauty light wand, in simpler language – the highlight wand. What’s a contour without its matching highlighter!
When Charlotte Tilbury made this highlight she wanted to ‘bottle the Beauty Light effects from the Hollywood red carpet!’ and it does just that! It has a beautiful glamorous look to it that would totally get you on the red carpet! Jokes aside, if you want to dazzle someone this Highlight Wand is the ticket to doing it properly.
Like the Charlotte Tilbury contour wand, the highlight wand has the same unique design. To use it, simply turn and squeeze the tube, then turn off to blend the highlighter in. The highlight colour is slightly pearl-gold. What I love is how there is no obvious shine but it has a beautiful radiant look to it once applied. It adds shine and glow to the cheekbones in a very natural way and doesn’t have that unnatural dumped look that many highlighters have.
Both the contour and highlight wands are a must-have for every contour addict! They are super easy to use and look so natural and flawless on. I also highly recommend them for newbies to contouring. It makes the whole process really easy and practically fool-proof. It’s very hard to mess up with these contour and highlight wands and you get the most beautiful cheekbones. It’s a win-win.
A small point that people often overlook is that you cannot use a cream contour with a powder foundation. It simply doesn’t work, it will just turn your foundation into a blotchy mess. If you are using a cream contour, using a cream foundation is a must for your makeup to last and look normal! One of my favourite foundation at the moment is the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. It will work really nicely with the contour and highlight sticks.
If Kim Kardashians contour and highlight sticks were a sell-out then I predict these will be a double sell-out. They are of much higher quality than the KKW contour sticks and the Charlotte Tilbury blending sponge is also much easier to blend with.
The only disadvantage to the Charlotte Tilbury Contour and Highlight Wands is the price. At £29 for each, this is expensive. However, in my opinion, they are worth every penny. They are of high quality and do the job perfectly. They are perfect for makeup artists and beginners alike. They are really products you can’t go wrong with.
If you want one of these I recommend buying asap because I predict they are going to sell out in no time:)
