Charlotte Tilbury Look in a Box - The Dolce Vita

My favourite makeup brand has to be Charlotte Tilbury. I didn't think I had a favourite until I actually looked at my collection properly and realised this is the brand I am always drawn to. I think there's something quite luxurious about Charlotte Tilbury, that being the packaging, the marketing of the brand as a whole, and of course more importantly, the quality of the products.


The latest addition to my Charlotte Tilbury collection is the Dolce Vita Look Box. I have honestly never seen a makeup gift set quite as beautiful. The idea behind it is that you get a 'look in a box' and can recreate one of Charlotte's most iconic looks from her collection using everything in this box. I have 'The Dolce Vita' but there are ten looks altogether, and each set is tailored to each particular look. 

According to Charlotte Tilbury herself, The Dolce Vita look is inspired by Italian actresses such as Penelope Cruz and Sophia Loren, with the finished look being a dark copper smokey eye to compliment darker eye colours. 

The Dolce Vita box includes the following;

The Feline Flick (Eyeliner)
The Dolce Vita Luxury Palette (Eyeshadow Quad)
Full Fat Lashes - Glossy Black (Mascara)
Cheek to Chic - Ecstacy (Blusher)
Lip Cheat - Pillow Talk (Lip liner in a nude pink shade)
Lipstick - Penelope Pink
Lip Lustre - Seduction (Lip Gloss)
Makeup bag

So basically, the only things you don't get are your base and brow products, you can use any base you like and then use this box and still achieve the Dolce Vita look. I absolutely love the eyeshadow quad because I have dark brown eyes so I always feel safe with these kind of shades. You can really build them up or tone them down too, I very often just use the earthy brown shade (Smoke) in my socket just to give my eyes an extra bit of definition without it being too glam for taking Rosie to soft play ha! I really like the Full Fat Lashes mascara, my only issue with it is that it isn't waterproof and I have other mascaras that don't smudge as easy as this so I tend to use them more. The volume you can achieve with it is amazing though. The eyeliner is actually a dream to apply even if you don't have the steadiest hand. I feel as though I've moved away from winged eyeliner at the moment but that could be due to having a one year old climbing all over me when applying so it's not always possible!



The three lip products help to create the perfect nude pink shade, and personally I think these three would be perfect for an elegant, classic bridal makeup because they aren't too heavy and just give a sumptuous shade of pink.


Blusher is kind of a danger zone to me, I never really wear it because I feel like it's so easy to just instantly mess your makeup up by applying too much. I actually met Charlotte Tilbury in person in 2015 and she told me I had a lovely complexion (no biggie) but being blonde with dark eyes she said I lacked colour in my cheeks and recommended I wear more blusher to warm my face up. I think I did it for about a week 'because Charlotte told me to' and then went back in to my comfort zone of bronzer and highlighter. The idea behind this blusher is to 'swirl and pop', so you use the shade around the edge to go upwards on your cheek bones and just lightly swirl your brush through the product, and the slightly brighter shade in the middle is the 'pop' to tap your brush gently onto the product and then onto the apples of your cheeks. I won't lie and say I use this often because blusher is still one that scares me but I am trying to brave it a little more! 


The Dolce Vita Look Box is on the high end side but I'm almost positive it works out cheaper to buy the set than if you were to purchase everything seperately. It's the perfect luxury present for any makeup lover and being able to pick a different look depending on makeup style I think is a great personal touch to a gift. 

I could talk forever about Charlotte Tilbury makeup but this post is quite long as it is, let me know your favourite CT product!

  8. I've never actually tried CT before, weirdly enough. I saw her once at Trafford Centre in passing but it turns out she was doing a signing. I always want to go try some of their products but their counters are so hectic but I'm gonna try and go early when I get paid. You're not alone about the blusher though!
