Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light Wand: Review

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen me banging on about this Charlotte Tilbury highlighter, the Hollywood Beauty Light Wand, about a week ago on my story. I wanted to write about it in more detail on here because I had a few messages asking if it was actually as good as I was claiming it to be.
As I said in my previous post, I’ve never really been a fan of cream highlighters, I was scared of having that strip of shine down my face from applying too much. Whilst I’m still wary of that, I find that a tiny dab of the Beauty Light Wand blended in with my finger gives just enough for a natural glow without feeling like my face is overly shiny. 

The applicator is a sponge top that you twist to unlock underneath and then squeeze to exert more product. I actually really like this because it means you don’t have much wastage, you just squeeze what you need each time. I feel like this will last me ages because I’ve been finding sometimes there’s enough left on the sponge from my previous use that I don’t need to twist it again. Winner!

I’ve always said on my blog that I’m no expert at makeup and don’t claim to be, I just like it and enjoy showing things that I like and what works for me. I never really post selfies on my blog (or at all really) especially not ones focused on makeup because I feel like there is so much pressure for makeup to be Instagram perfect nowadays, but I figured the best way to show the highlight would be this way rather than a hand swatch. Please be kind I know I’m far from MUA level ha. 

I've used it on my cheeks, a little on my nose and forehead (above brows) and a really small amount on my cupid's bow. I was so tempted to edit out the flaws on my skin because I could pick out about a million but I decided to keep it real ha.
The Beauty Light Wand is a very light consistency making it really easy to move and blend with my finger, which I think is why I like it so much. 

I hope you find this post useful, let me know in the comments if you like it/ have tried it/ would apply it differently I’d love to know. And also if I should stick to hand swatches haha!

Thanks for reading x
