Charlotte Tilbury lands in India and we are definitely picking up these 5 products

Charlotte Tilbury launches in India on Nykaa and we got you their bestsellers with prices.

The beauty business is booming. With Charlotte Tilbury entering the Indian market through Nykaa, it’s going to be a ball for beauty addicts who are looking to splurge on quality makeup and skincare without the overheads and customs. Charlotte Tilbury is a well-known and highly influential British make-up artist who also founded the world’s most loved  makeup and skincare brand, Charlotte Tilbury.

She comes with an astounding 27 years of experience in the beauty business and has single-handedly revolutionised skincare and makeup with her Magic Cream and her Pillow Talk nudes. Her simple but effective makeup tricks and her penchant for creating products that resonate with the women of today keep her in the good books of everything beauty. London-based but lived all over Spain, Charlotte’s creative stance stems up her parents – both in the creative field themselves. Her father was a painter and her mother a fashion producer. And armed with genetics and a love for transformative makeup, Charlotte created a brand that is loved by all for it’s high-performance products and her empowered formulas.

And with Nykaa bringing in some powerhouse labels recently like Murad, we are expecting the bar to hit all the high notes with the Charlotte Tilbury launch too. To celebrate the launch Indian beauty fans can try the virtual pop-up on the Nykaa app where they are introducing the new Indian wedding look created for Indian women and brides. And a whopping 10 looks straight from the makeup artist extraordinaire herself. “Darlings, my new mesmerising Indain wedding look is inspired by Hollywood glamour, confidence and joy. I want to empower you to be the most beautiful, confident version of yourself during your wedding celebrations, with a gorgeous, glowing makeup look of beauty icons to let you light up any room!” says Charlotte Tilbury, Makeup Artist & Chairman & Creative Chief Officer, Charlotte Tilbury Beauty of this new venture, created especially for India and Indian brides.

The quintessentially British, digital-first, hybrid skincare, makeup and fragrance company has won 320+ global industry awards to date and that’s saying something. Here are our favourite products to pick up from the popular makeup label this year.

Luxury Palette in Bella Sofia and Pillow Talk, Rs 4,900

Let’s be honest, nothing beats these concisely-created eyeshadow palettes – with the right amount of shimmer and matte shades to give you a complete look. The colour-coded palette features seductive, molten bronzes, coppery tones, red-browns and shimmering champagne – in all their glory and they are not just buttery and velvety but richly pigmented and formulated with care. We are also a bit partial to the Instant Eye Palette in Pillow Talk which has more shades and is perfect for the wedding season.

Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk Medium, Rs 2,200

We’ve already spoken about how iconic the lip liners at Charlotte Tilbury are. And Pillow Talk is their most popular shade and for Indian skin, medium works much better. The deep berry-pink lip liner defines and recreates the shape of your lips, making them fuller and more plumper.  The lip liner lasts up to six hours and gives you a great pout.

Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk Medium and Walk Of No Shame, Rs 3,150

A warm berry-pink lipstick enriched with hydrating extracts and 3D glowing pigments so you can have a long-lasting, modern matte pout. The most popular colours for Indian skin are the Pillow Talk Medium and the Walk Of No Shame – both stunning and buttery on the lips and never drying. The formula and pigment are rich and glide on beautifully, hydrating the lips and keeping them moisturised along the way.

Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte’s Magic Cream, Rs 5,650

Whats’ amazing is how Charlotte Tilbury balances makeup with skincare and her skincare is known for it’s science-powered transformations with clinically-proven results. This popular, almost iconic, award-winning, best-selling moisturiser was originally created backstage to instantly prep and transform the look of models’ skin before fashion shows and since everyone was raving about it, it was bottled and retailed and boy, we are glad. What’s the secret? It’s magic matrix of oils and Charlotte’s ‘magic 8’ supercharged skincare ingredients along with  SPF15. Just what we needed to transform our skin for 2021. We’ve heard grand things about the Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir too, if you want to add it to this skincare regime.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish, Rs 4,300 

We’ve heard that their Flawless filter foundation is killer but let’s not forget the popularity and fame this powder compact enjoys. Indian  women have told us how they hate wearing foundation but would gladly go for this beauty because it offers full coverage and is not chalk or powdery. It comes in four stunning colours (we wish there were more, considering Indian skin tones) and it’s a super-finely milled powder that gives that silky finish.  Sweet almond oil and rose wax help add hydration and moisture and the formula itself keeps your skin soft and silky smooth. Plus, it gives you that airbrushed look for those selfies. Add in the Charlotte Tilbury Cheek To Chic blush and you’re set.
