    Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation Reviews

    Magic!
    I have used this foundation for a hot minute now and I still LOVE it! I used to use it on it's own and then switched to hourglass vanish stick, both was running out just before a trip to Barcelona so I mixed them to get me through and WOW. I now do a few light spots of the vanish stick and brush it all over my face then a light coat of magic foundation again with a brush and then use a Beauty blender to take off excess...dream duo...and I cannot go without.
    Perfect for me
    I got shade two and for me, it is the perfect foundation. Great coverage and easy to apply. Also the colour stays the same all day :-)
    Not great
    I must say have had this foundation for a while but never use it. The shade range is good especially for very pale skin tones and it looks nice when put on at first, but the staying power is too bad that I never bother. It only lasts a couple of hours on my skin before it starts to separate and cake which is very disappointing for the price. Also, it really doesn't work well with the 'Magic complexion brush', I would steer clear of this foundation if I'm honest.
    Favourite foundation
    This is one of the best foundations I have ever used. Its got great coverage in just one pump and lasts ages. Doesn’t feel heavy at all and the range of shades is fab. It’s a great fail-safe and one to always keep handy!
    Waste of money
    Such a poor foundation, stay away from it. It doesn’t work well with a brush but if you try and use this with a Beautyblender it goes patchy and hideous one of the worst foundations I’ve ever tried.
    Standard
    Really wasn't happy with this foundation. I found that even if I touched my face the foundation would come off. By mid-day, I was left with patches all over my face as this foundation really does not last. Disappointing and such a waste of money.
    Worst thing for my skin
    This foundation destroyed my foundation brush, I COULD NOT get the makeup out of it and had to buy a new one after a couple of uses with this. I struggled so much getting it off my face at the end of the day that my skin broke out very very badly. HOWEVER. I've never had another foundation stay put all day long like this one when I got home from work it still looked freshly applied, even in m oily T zone.
    Still on the fence...
    I'm still on the fence about this foundation. I absolutely love the shade as it matches my skin tone perfectly, which believe me is a task! However, I find it quite drying, especially on my forehead and at the tip of my nose and after a few hours, you can see dry skin appearing and the makeup sitting in my eye creases.
    Love this
    The shade and texture are absolutely perfect. Works best in combination with other CT-products (magic cream, primer, powder).
    Needs a good primer
    I’ve had this foundation for a while and when I first tried it I really didn’t like it. However, I tried it again recently with wonder glow and it suddenly looks amazing. I have dry skin and it makes it look flawless and lasts all day. Very happy because it’s one of two foundations I’ve found that is the right colour for my skin.
    Excellent Foundation
    So many negative comments about this foundation, but I have found it to be excellent. I gave it a 4/5 because it does need to be built up to achieve maximum coverage, but that aside, I find it creamy, easy to apply and has a great range of shades to suit most skin tones. I am a fifty seven year old woman who has a normal to dry skin. This foundation suits that combo best and its worth noting that it works really well with after using an excellent exfoliator and moisturiser. If you have patchy, flaky dry skin, then this will not work for you but on my dry(ish) mature skin, its provided excellent hydration, a porcelain finish and perfect 8 hour plus longevity.
    Not for me
    The colour match on this was perfect, I liked the look of it and the bottle is lovely, but that’s all I like. I have dry skin and usually keep it under control but with this foundation it’s like I shouldn’t have bothered. It shows all the dry patches (or makes them where it was fine) and creases awfully. I’m better off wearing no foundation at all. This might be good for those with more oily completions but not for us with dry skin.
    anti-climax
    Treated myself to this foundation, i'm shade 5. Colour match was perfect and that is why it receives 1*. My skin is dry-combo. This foundation emphasises flakes, creases and any imperfections. Felt it was quite thick actually and felt it on my skin through the day. I just couldn't wait to get home and wash my face. Quite drying too. I tried to love this foundation because of the price I paid for it, but no matter what I tried, it just wouldn't work for me. People work hard for their money, there is no reason this foundation should be as much as it is when, in my opinion, it is cheaper drugstore quality.
    Great coverage
    This is my go to foundation if I'm going out for dinner or an evening out. The coverage is amazing on my skin and I find it really easy to blend. Slightly drying personally on my skin (my skin is very dry regardless) however with a good moisturiser beforehand, it never fails. I'd recommend.
    Love it
    I expected a natural finish and that is exactly what it gives. So, I think I've found my foundation. My shade is the lightest, though it look a little bit dark on hand, it looks very bright on my face. (My face is red with visible pores and in general an irritated skin)
    So-so
    There are days when I think this foundation looks great on my skin but there are also other days when I think its horrible. First of all, I got the shade 3.5. On the website it claims to have a yellow undertone; nope, I disagree. It looked almost pink on me. Second of all, don't bother applying this foundation with a Beautyblender, it just won't work. For some reason it worked better with a foundation brush. Thirdly, it is not full coverage like it claimed to be. It is actually a light to medium coverage foundation. You want full, go for THREE pumps of this thing. Lastly, I gave it three stars becuase the finish on my skin isn't actually all that bad. Its just that I've tried better foundations out there.
    Don't waste your money
    Was an excellent colour match for my skin but the positives stop there; made my skin appear flaky, seemed to emphasise pores and wouldn't recommend for oily skin as there was no oil control whatsoever. Waste of £30 do not recommend.
    Average
    For the money, it is not worth it. It's a nice consistency with a nice colour match, but the staying power and the coverage is just not there, especially when it claims to be. For the money, look elsewhere. I have bought a few things from CT, and have always come away disappointed. Probably won't buy again.
    Disappointing
    I bought this foundation hoping that, especially for the price, it would do everything it claims. This foundation goes into fine lines very easily and you can feel it sat on your skin the whole day, making it feel uncomfortable. It really emphasises pores and I couldn't wait to take it off. I tried to mix it with other foundations to see if it would be better and it didn't make much difference, don't waste your money.
    Perfect for oily skin!
    I have purchased this foundation several times. It is seriously amazing, especially for oily skin. I honestly have the worlds oiliest skin and huge pores it's horrific, but this makes my skin look perfect. It's a full coverage, but not at all heavy on the skin. However, I'm not sure how well it would suit dry skin as it is not a hydrating foundation at all. Being a makeup artist, I use this on all clients with oily skin with a mattifying primer it's perfection!
    Great foundation, but not full coverage
    This foundation is not full coverage as claimed. However, it is still a great foundation. I have combo skin, and this gives a nice semi-matte and very natural finish. It last decently throughout a long day (taken my sometimes quite oily t-zone into account). I got it in the shade 3,5 and it has such a nice yellow undertone, which I find is rather rare within some foundation ranges. Really am liking it.
    Best foundation I've found
    I have dry to normal skin and a very red skin tone and this foundation works amazing, It also does exactly what it says on the tin and it STAYS ON! You will need makeup wipes to get it off I can have a shower and go swimming and it stays in place. One pump does by whole face and it covers and evens out my skin tone really well. The lightest shade is still a little dark for me so I use a foundation base that's white to get it lighter but it blends out really well. Get this!
    disappointed
    I was waiting for this foundation, but it disappointed me. No product went so bad on my skin. For some reason when applying the foundation it emphasizes all the flaws and wrinkles.
    Not what I expected for oily skin
    Purchased this foundation after seeing the reviews and all the advertising of it. I was told it was great for my skin type because it has a semi matte finish. I must say that I am extremely disappointed, I have oily combination skin and this foundation is not the one for my skin type. I applied the foundation with a beauty blender, at first it gives a nice coverage with a smooth finish however after a few hours of wear I noticed that my skin became oily - especially around my t-zone, my nose and mouth, the foundation was leaving patches and started to slide off my skin (bearing in mind I used it during the winter time, I don't want to think about wearing the foundation in warm weather). I have not used the foundation since and sadly it will go to waste.
    One of the best foundations!
    After using MAC foundations for a few years, I found that no matter which one I tried it would oxidise. I've always been a fan of Charlotte Tilbury and I think this was one of the first products I bought, and I'm glad I did. Leaves a beautiful finish to the skin, the coverage is easily buildable and is great for all skin types. I have more oily skin, with the odd dry patch, and it will last throughout the whole day and still looks good. Most definitely worth a buy! Not forgetting the colour match was perfect.
    Good foundation - need more time to love it
    I have an oily/combo skin that's acne prone and with first signs of very fine lines. I have this foundation in shade 3 (literally perfect match) and so far so good. I do use primer (high adherence one), then powdered the face with some translucent powder and after about 8h of wear, it has not (luckily!) separated or gathered in my fine lines. Yes it has rubbed off in places (nose and chin but I do blow my nose a lot due to allergies), but the rest seems to have held off very well. I just used a blotting paper and its all good. It's a matte finish and medium to high coverage (not full full coverage). I do prefer more natural finish for the day. Overall, I do like it but need more time to love it. it doesn't dry out my skin so that's great (can happen with matte, higher coverage foundations). I think with time it might be one of my favourites but it does have a lot to live up to.
    A exciting shock
    So I'm a Nars girl through and through, with the odd exception. I've tried so many foundations the list is endless, but I always levitate back to Nars as my personal preference it suits my skin. However this is literally a gorgeous foundation and I adore how it finishes on my skin. I'm a changed woman - it's such a texturised and fab coverage foundation without the greasy sticking oily layer that some leave on your skin. May I also add, Cult Beauty have provided me with the best deals over the years and I absolutely love love love shopping here - the best in terms of delivery and ease of purchasing x
    Very good foundation
    I find the foundation just wonderful, it applies nicely and stays on all day. I have very oily skin, and I have to say that with this foundation I am staying shine-free for longer. I use it in combination with the wonder cream, and I love both products.
    Buy a lipstick Instead
    When I first bought this foundation a few years ago, I was converted to it. I loved how there was a selection of shades, it (generally) stayed put on my oily skin and offered great coverage. I recently repurchased it but I am now rather disappointed by it. It doesn't apply well with a brush, a sponge is necessary. I've also been told when I wear this foundation it's very obvious! If you're looking for a Charlotte Tilbury product to invest in, I would recommend a lipstick or an eye shadow palette as opposed to this.
    Disappointing DO NOT PURCHASE FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS
    I purchased a shade 8 which is labelled as medium when first applied it was a match for me however it turned orange also it gives you flashback due to the SPF it broke apart around my nose during the day the only good thing is the coverage when freshly applied save your money.
    Magic in a Bottle
    I love this foundation! I usually avoid foundation at all costs because I hate the feeling of it on my face, and I've personally never felt a massive need for it. I particularly hate wearing foundation over the summer because I find my skin always feels like it's bubbling when it gets really hot. However, this product has been the perfect solution. I just put a few dollops on my face and blend it in, which results in my face having a lovely smooth texture and healthy glow. Also I am a fan of the fact that it has SPF 15 which is a massive bonus...and the packaging is beautiful! I think if you want loads of coverage, this product doesn't seem great based on the reviews I've seen on here and online, but it's perfect if you're looking to give your skin a smooth appearance and healthy glow!
    Not worth the price
    I have gifted this foundation which made me very excited the shade was perfect. BUT the finishing of this foundation I actually believe is very unnatural, it is obvious that you are wearing foundation. it is quite dry and products do not blend well together. I tried it to give it a number of times a chance but it keeps disappointing me. It is not worth the money and it does not look good on the skin.
    Nothing special
    I have really tried to get into using this foundation, however, I always seem to be looking for a different foundation. Good coverage for the first few hours. It is quite drying and after a few hours it wears off.
    Quite ordinary
    Quite an ordinary foundation. The only plus is that it's light enough for my skin. I've tried different styles of application, and it still looks weird on the skin and is quite visible in the pores and fine lines.
    Excellent for events - opaque coverage
    I bought this foundation after a makeup artist recommended it to me and I have to say it was the right choice for my requirements. It goes on smoothly over most primers and stays matte for upto 5 hours on my combination skin. One recommendation though - use it with a makeup brush and not a sponge.
    Disappointed
    I thought this made your skin look oily and slipped off your face within a few hours, I didn't like it at all.
    Update
    Ok, I tried to apply it with Magic cream and Wonderglow and finally IT WORKS! It doesn’t crease anymore!!! And powder works perfect with this combo! So it’s 4 out of 5!
    Fantastic
    I have always be devoted to my regular foundations but thought I'd branch out. This blew my mind away. Perfect shade match based on their photos and gives a fab dewy finish.
    Not really into it
    Well, I couldn’t wait for my order to come so I finally could try this magic on my skin...but magic didn’t happened. The foundation was creasing around the nose, on my cheeks and sink into my large pores. First I thought I’m doing something wrong. I tried different combinations with primers, moisturisers but it was still creasing. And the sad thing was that when I put a CT powder it looked so horrible. I was hoping to love it but this foundation is not for me.
    Not "magic"
    This foundation would probably suit oily to combination skins. As for me who has dry skin, it shows dry patches and worst flakiness of my skin. It's not full coverage but medium.
    Gorgeous foundation
    I had seen this all over youtube so I thought I'd give it a try and I loved it. Although it's probably medium coverage, not full (so for acne sufferers like myself, concealer is needed) it's also a really nice demi-matte finish so it's not dewy but it's not matte either and looks natural. I got the colour 2 but I think I'll get the colour 1 this time because it can run a little on the warmer side. Definitely for anyone who has combination skin - this didn't break me out at all.
    Not my cup of tea
    Purchased this foundation before it was available on Cult Beauty from her flagship store in Covent Garden. Although this claims to be 'magic' I found that it was far from it. I had high expectations for this foundation. I knew it wouldn't be full coverage as Charlotte's products focus on emphasising what you have using ingredients that are good for your skin. However this compromises the overall finish of the product. Definitely not for those who want a full coverage flawless finish. This foundation will leave you with oily and patchy skin and it will settle into all of your fine lines and wrinkles whilst emphasising your pores.
    I want to cry
    So, I was so eager to try this that I paid extra for quick delivery. It arrived 30 mins ago and I purposely left my make up in the morning until it had arrived. I bought the medium 6 shade which was a good match for my skin tone, but this really is awful foundation for the price. I applied my normal primer, and I normally use my beauty blender so went on to use this, to find there was virtually no coverage at all. I then thought maybe it's the sponge so used my artist brush. Still barely any coverage. I got through 4 different applicators and came to the conclusion it was the foundation. It claims to have full coverage, but it is barely medium coverage. So disappointed. Unless you have brilliant skin and don't actually need foundation on and wish to waste £30 for fun, then buy this.
    Great Foundation
    Had a slightly lighter coverage than I expected but loved the finish it gave and it lasts throughout the day.
    Not for people who prefer full coverage
    The consistency is great, don't get me wrong and because I have dry-combination skin it felt really lovely on my skin. But after a couple of uses I noticed it gives me a slight tingling sensation. Also, the product is no where near as full coverage as I like and not easily buildable. I have yet to try it mixed with other foundations so I hope that will improve the coverage, also would prefer if it was more dewy, it seemed a bit dull on my skin.
    Really disappointed
    I have been using Mac Pro long wear for years now so I thought I'd give this foundation a try as I've heard great things about it. The first day I wore this product my skin became so oily and my foundation was just coming off and going patchy. I don't usually get oily skin but with this product I did and I found after a few days of using it I started to come out with spots which I rarely get. So this really wasn't for me. Think I'll be sticking to my trusted mac prolong wear.
    LOVE LOVE LOVE ❤️
    I absolutely love this foundation; medium coverage, light and amazingly - the lightest shade actually works for me! I am super pale & have struggled a lot to find the right colour. I've been using with Gosh hydrating primer perfectly, despite having dry skin. Love that it's matte finish, easily made less so by using a beauty blender to add a really thin layer of primer over the TOP - try it some time if you have dry skin.
    My second bottle
    I just purchased my second bottle of it. It's hydrating and have a nice finish. I love how it wears. However, not so full-coverage as I expected.
    Not for me
    I so wanted this foundation to work for me but sadly it doesn't. I have combination skin and it makes my skin greasy. I have used benefit's primer underneath and powder on top, still after an hour or so it just look patchy and oily. I was surprised it was a medium coverage (I thought it was a full coverage foundation) and of course i can't build it up because i would look like I'm sweating after 10 min. The lightest colour is perfect on me, which is such a shame, because I have trouble finding a perfect match. It will probably work for someone that has dry or normal skin.
    Skin like perfection.....
    It's a nice medium coverage...but didn't minimised pores..anyway superb!!! No make up make feeling with skin like finish.
    Amazing
    I'm so in love with this foundation it makes my skin look so natural ♥️
    Wouldn't recommend for oily skin
    As many people I have combination skin - dry patches near the jawline and an oily t-zone. First applied, this foundation gave a reasonable amount of coverage but definitely wouldn't call it full coverage. The foundation instantly makes your face feel soft and moisturized, so doesn't feel heavy at all. After a few hours wear the foundation weirdly begins to separate on the skin leaving notable blotches on your face. I tried this with a variety of primers, powders and setting sprays but nothing worked. Sadly won't be repurchasing.
