Charlotte Ronson Beauty @ Sephora

Inspired by the concept of effortless beauty, under any spotlight, The Charlotte Ronson Beauty collection products are created with Light Filter Technology™ to diffuse and filter light. Like your own personal “lighting guy,” these formulas automatically adjust to changing light, giving your skin radiance and flawlessness under any spotlight. Charlotte Ronson also collaborated with her celebrity friends and muses, like Nicole Richie, and sister, Samantha Ronson, to ensure products met the needs of a fast-paced lifestyle. They asked for it and she created it: portable packaging, buildable formulas and universal colors that are flirty and feminine with a decidedly downtown feel.

  1. Dana

    Who is Charlotte Ronson? And why are they name dropping her drug addict sister who was arrested for a DUI last week?

  2. Leah

    Some of the colors look beautiful but I’m not wild about the packaging. Will you be reviewing this collection, Christine?

  3. I hope the eyeshadows and Charm Luminizer, Blush (peach/pink), Bronzer are pigmented because they look like nice wearable kits for the average woman. I don’t have high expectations on lipglosses in general. lol

  4. With so many cosmetic brand already available, the new brands need to find a niche where it has something worthwhile to have long time followers. What makes this brand so special? Light Filter Technology? Do I need to buy it to find out?

    Never heard of this line/person before but I do like the 2nd e/s quad shown and the illuminator/bronzer palette sounds interesting though it seems a bit too coral/peach for my skin colour. Still, I will gladly give it a look/try out when/if they get it at the Sephora near me. Christine, will you be reviewing any of these products? That always means a lot more to me than the company’s publicity blurbs.

  6. Kathylulu

    The price isn’t bad at all.

    this collection doesn’t seem like such a big deal for me :-?

  8. Glosslizard

    LOL! Love the name “A Perfect Mess”! :D

  9. lilo

    The colours are boring and mentioning the “designer’s” drunk DJ sister in the ad (who NEVER wears makeup) is a terrible idea, marketers.

  10. Lulee

    Her fashion designs are boring and so is her makeup! I don’t see anything here that I haven’t seen 1,463,755,865 times before. I’m not sure why she needs a makeup line. Many people would be much better options than a subpar fashion designer who is only famous because of her name and the people she knows

  11. Imsi

    The edges on the eyeshadows look all crusty like they’re spilling out. The colors are not even that special might as well buy the wet n wild it has more variety for less than half the price.

  12. Ashley Marie

    Collaborated with Sam Ransom? On makeup? What a joke! Lol. its funny they even put her in the same paragraph as “flirty and feminine”.

  13. Lucie

    Boringggg. And ‘Light Filter Technology’? Gimme a break!

  14. hazel

    lol at least she didn’t name drop Lindsey Lohan

  15. Saffy

    The colours look wearable and the prices are reasonable. But as others have mentioned, they’re not unique in any way. And mentioning Sam Ronson and calling her a “celebrity” is really off putting. Why not just throw Lindsay Lohan’s name up there too? Associating your brand with people who generate such negative publicity is a really bad PR move.

  16. danielle

    these look really cheap. i dont like how you can see the metal lining even before you have used them. wet n’ wild has a better looking purple palette and nyx has a better nude/warm palettes. by telling me i should buy this because she “collaborated” with her celebrity sister is almost like an actor telling me who to vote for. it’s insulting. and what EXACTLY is light filter technology? this just sounds like another gimick.

  17. Oh, her…face is on the packaging? Really. That’s…interesting….

  18. I have never tried Charlotte Ronson Beauty. I definitely need to pick something up sometime, because they look amazing :D

  19. toe

    colors have been done a million times over. nothing here you can’t find in either avon or wet ‘n wild. xo
