Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand Review



Everybody who has visited my blog for some time already will know that I love everything that Charlotte Tilbury releases. I had tried pretty much everything in her range and I am pretty much obsessed with every single item. So, when I saw her sharing snippets of a contouring wand on YouTube and Instagram last year, I knew that I had to try it out. Literally on the day that it was released, I went straight onto her website and paid for it with next day delivery. Over the past couple of months, I have been trying this out and really putting it through its paces, before I uploaded this post.
As much as I wanted to upload this post, more or less as soon as I bought it, I also wanted to take some time to really get to use the product and see how it performed with other product combinations. Now that I have been using this for around 6 months now, I thought it was time for me to sit down and right about this incredible contouring product. If you cannot already tell from just the small amount that I have wrote about this Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand, I am completely obsessed with it already and it has become part of my everyday makeup routine.

The first thing that I want to touch on in this blog post is the packaging that it comes in. When I first saw it, I wasn’t sure that I was going to love it. It was the foam applicator that really got me questioning if this was going to be my favourite. I imagined the applicator to be quite scratchy, but I will admit that I was completely wrong. The applicator is super soft and applies the product like a dream. All you do is take the top off, twist the top once to release the product and then squeeze the tube to get the product onto the indicator. The packaging is just perfect in my opinion, I have seen others moan about it, but to me it is just ideal for travelling with and keeping in my makeup bag.
Now onto the product itself. This stuff is so incredibly creamy, which is just what a contouring product needs to be. I have tried hell of a lot of contouring products over the years and I can admit that nothing seems quite as creamy as this does. When it is applied to the face it glides on so smoothly and you can just tell that it moves really easily on the skin. I have tried liquid and crème contouring products before and nothing quite feels the way that this does. Plus, the applicator makes it really easy to apply this super creamy product.
Even though the product is super creamy, I want to talk about how well it blends into the skin. It doesn’t matter really how creamy a product is, if it doesn’t blend in properly, it doesn’t work. I have tried to blend this Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand in with my fingers, Beauty Blenders and even brushes and no matter what tool I use, it looks so pretty time and time again. I think my favourite way to blend this into the skin is using a damp Beauty Blender, I just feel that with that, it looks super flawless and seamless on the skin. But, I have also used this with my MAC 187 Duo Fibre Brush and it looks really nice and airbrushed onto the skin.


One big thing that I need to test when it comes to using contouring products similar to the Charlotte Tilbury Contour Wand, is how it pairs up with other makeup products. When I use this product, I always have my foundation already in place. So, I tried it out with various foundations, in order to check that it worked with all of them. To be honest, I don’t have complaints about this product paired with any of the foundations that I tried it with. All of my favourite foundations such as the Nars Sheer Glow, Too Faced Born This Way and Estee Lauder Double Wear just looked perfect with this. Depending on how heavy handed you can be with the product it can displace the foundation slightly below, but nothing outwardly noticeable.
The final thing that I want to touch on is the longevity of this product. I usually apply this product at 7am in a morning and then I just do the rest of my makeup like normal. I can wear this product all day long until the late hours of the evening and have no issues with it. I have an oily complexion and I never have to re-powder where I apply this product so it doesn’t make me any oilier than I normally am.
You can probably tell at this point that I am completely head over heels with this Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand. I reach for it every single day and I am ready to repurchase another and I know that without a shadow of a doubt that I am going to be buying another. I may even buy a couple just to have as a backup. God knows what I would do if Charlotte Tilbury ever discontinued this product, I may just have a mental breakdown. If you have tried this product out, make sure to leave me a comment down below and let me know what you thought about it. I will also leave a comment down below to this product in case you want to check it out!
