Tried and True

I’ve been buying and trying a number of light-weight foundations recently and I keep coming back to Charlotte Tilbury’s products—they are great on my dry skin and aren’t irritating. Until something knocks them off their pedestal, I’m sticking with what works.

Light Wonder, Wonder Glow, The Retoucher, Nude Kate lipstick.

  • Hi Preston, I LOVE Charlotte Tibury products but nothing beats VITALUMIÈRE AQUA by Chanel. Oh and yes to Nude Kate! If you want a very chic summer date night lip, dab The Queen as a tint…gorgeous.

  • Charlotte Tibury products have not been working too well for my skin and I tried several since they have been consistently receiving high marks on KiC. Am thinking, it may be the skin type or something to that effect. I am a long time fan of Chanel and their foundation, blush, lipstick, and mascara are just hard to beat! Lighter products are perfect for summer (and I live in Texas and ‘test’ every item in major heat!). I do ‘cheat’ on Chanel with nail polish – Dior has come up with the Abricot line and it is magnificent.

  • For texture, Burberry is still my fave. But I’ve just this second tried Estee Lauder Doublewear Nude. It’s a much lighter, water-based version of the clsssic Doublewear. It goes on like a dream and feels like nothing on the skin but I want to see how it lasts throughout the day. I have a few dry patches so I want to see if it clings to them or not. Charlotte Tilbury’s undereye concealer pen is amazing, I can’t remember if I’ve tried the foundation. Need to hunt it out…

  • Another vote for Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua! I have used Chanel foundations longer than I care to remember, it gives that your own skin but only better.

  • I love CT wonderglow and the lipsticks. For foundation I prefer Tom Ford and Armani. In the summer I love the Armani crema nuda.

  • I love CT for eyes and lips but I prefer Lancome for yellow tone foundation. CT’s Walk of Shame is my favourite lipstick for the evening.

  • Do you know how it compares to NARS tinted moisturizer? That’s been my HG.

  • I used Laura Mercier for years, never tried NARS.

  • I use Nude Kate with Blondie gloss over it – great summer lip.

  • Preston – I also have dry skin. Which moisturizers do you use? Eye and face, day and evening.
