It's always nice to know whether a product is a total miss or a definite splurge. Especially, before we've wasted hours at the beauty counter trying to decide if it's worth it! I want to save you the headache and trip, so I'm reviewing Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow.
I had looked for Charlotte Tilbury's line in stores awhile back with zero success, and had given up hope that we'd ever have the line in Cali. So imagine my glorious surprise, when I learned that Charlotte Tilbury's line was going to be in Nordstrom. I was so excited.
When I was there I learned that they only had a limited selection of products. I really wanted to try the foundation, but they didn't carry that yet. Then I saw her Wonder Glow and Magic Cream.
I may do a Magic Cream review later down the road, but it being a $100 and looking like thin lotion with ground sparkles in it... I passed, and went for the Wonder Glow instead.
Here's the breakdown..

• Scented? - Yes, but once it all soaks in you don't smell it.
• Flash back or good for pictures? - Definitely good for pictures.
• Skin types that can wear it: Most. Caution to sensitive skinned people as there is a bit of fragrance, and caution to oily skin as it did make me (a combo skinned person) a littl oiler at the end of day than usual.
• Skin tones that can wear it: Most. It has a slight yellow/golden tint to it. I would caution porcelain skinned people
• Cost? - $55 plus tax.
• Splurge or total miss: I do like it quite a lot. I also think it is a bit pricey but by the same token you don't really need to use that much. I would defintely repurchase. So, if you have the extra cash give it a shot!
