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

  1. With 3D printing taking the health trade by storm, printing a solid appeared like a logical step for Anais. The brace was plated with a copper and nickel mix to discover other healing properties. The nickel plating made the brace cooler, which helped aid comfort while healing. But it was also an experiment to blur the boundaries between Heated Throw Blanket Electric drugs and jewelry. If you’ve ever wanted to make designer pancakes in the comfort of your own house, the PancakeBot is what you’ve been waiting for.
