Charlotte Tilbury Love Glow Cheek to Chic Blusher

Charlotte Tilbury Love Glow Cheek to Chic Blusher ($40.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium, almost cool-toned pink with a pearly, golden sheen. The golden shimmer/sheen makes it seem warmer overall, but the pink itself reads cool-toned. MAC Lesson in Love (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery. Sleek MakeUP Icing Sugar (P, $6.99) is less golden. Tarina Tarantino Parasol (P, $25.00) is brighter. Giorgio Armani Eccentrico (LE, $88.00) is a touch lighter. Too Faced Raindrops on Roses (LE) is brighter. Milani Dolce Pink (P, $7.99) is warmer. MAC Springsheen (P, $21.00) is warmer. MAC Gentle (P, $27.00) is similar. Benefit Bella Bamba (P, $28.00) is brighter. NARS Orgasm (P, $34.00) is more shimmery and warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It’s the finish that makes this blush sing–it’s luminous without being metallic or frosted, so it doesn’t emphasize pores while giving skin a really lovely glow and flush. It had good color payoff, and it had a soft, velvety, finely-milled consistency, which helped the powder apply easily and sit well on the skin. When I tested it, the color lasted for eight hours before fading. The blush is easiest used swirled together, because neither are that large on their own, so you’d really need to use smaller, more precise blush brushes to fit into them. You can read my other reviews for this formula here.

The brand has launched in the U.S. today at Nordstrom, Beautylish, NET-A-PORTER, Bergdorf Goodman.

That looks beautiful. I’ve heard really good things about all of her makeup, but especially her blushes and lipsticks. Does anyone know where we can find her line in stores or online in the US?

I’m so torn on this one! I looove the color (and the Sleek “dupe” was the only one in the trio I liked), but I’ve bought so much blush over the last couple of months… Who am I kidding-this *will* end up cominh home with me, LOL!

This is a really lovely blusher on you, Christine! I have been using Chanel’s Joues Contraste Blush in Rose Initial for at least the past year (due to one of your reviews!). I’m wondering if this color would work for me, too? So far I have the Filmstar Bronze & Glow from Charlotte Tilbury and I’m really liking it, so I’m interested in picking up some more of her items. Do you think Love Glow would work well for a fairer / cooler skin tone (Chanel 12 Beige Rose)?

OHHHHHH!! today must be my lucky day! So happy to see your reviews keep updating. I almost refresh the main page every hour! And they are all about the fabulous Charlotte Tilbury!

Yes NARS Orgasm is the first dupe that came to my mind too, when I saw the swatch. And checking back that you gave the NARS one a B plus, I think I’m definitely getting this Charlotte Tilbury one for sure, even though I have NARS for a while and it works well on me. But who can say no to a flattering color like this ! I also have a soft spot for creamy peach color too. Man…. I can hear my purse weeping in the drawer, It’s time to take it for a visit to the Nordstrom.

I’m home on vacation this week..I guess I’ll be swatching Charlotte Tilbury at Nordstroms tomorrow! I hope they have a physical display at the store.

You have beautiful skin, Christine, and with this blush it looks even more flawless! It’s perfect shade for you, I think.

I think I’ve just fallen in love with Charlotte’s blushes. The bad thing is I’m experiencing a lot of problems with my skin recently, and on me nothing looks good – or at least decent.

could you please mention the regime you got on that finally worked for you? I know you mentioned it in a previous blog but I can’t seem to find it…I would even appreciate the link as I’m sure you’re too busy to go over it again. Thanks in advance.

I was about to comment on your CT lipgloss post and ask what you had on your cheeks because it was so gorgeous, and I guess I have my answer :). This is absolutely on my list now. It’s a jackpot product for me!

The hint of gold without the glitter is SO gorgeous! I’m still not sure if I could get away with the shimmer in it, but that’s just because I’ve never tried it, LOL!

It is indeed beautiful as everyone has mentioned, especially on you but I’m torn on the wear time. I’m surprised it faded after 8 hours. I need a 10-12 hour blush

What blushes wear 10-12 hours on you? There are only a handful of blushes that last that long on me – 8 hours is average for me.

i get really great wear out of a lot of bobbi brown blushes and some Mac, like Pink Swoom and Melba just as an example. And I must say the Chanel creme blushes last a long time as well. Generally, the colors are what as stay powering and not necessarily the brand itself. There are hits and misses in every brand.

Love how it glows on you, Christine! Glad it’s permanent so there’s no rush to get it. I hope Nordstrom brings the brand to Canada when they open their stores here.

That is so lovely! I keep my eyes on CT products for ages! If I have to choose only one thing from her line, what would you suggest?

*Oh and sorry for my bad English ๐Ÿ˜€

Is there a product you wear often? Like a type? I think her powders are very finely-milled and feel high-end/luxury, so I’d probably recommend a blush or eyeshadow.

Oh my goodness, Christine, since you started to review Charlotte Tilbury products, my “buying” list (yes, “buying” list, not wish list) has experienced a rapid growth. I’m seriously afraid about your new reviews โ”€ risk of an ‘uncontrolled’ expansion!!
I have just ordered this blush, the Lipstick in โ€˜Bitch Perfectโ€™ and the Eyeshadow Quad in โ€˜The Rebelโ€™. Meanwhile, I still need to decide whether to buy the Eyeshadow Quad in โ€˜The Rock Chickโ€™ or not.
In addition, 2014 is the year of “TEMPTALIA RECOMMENDS”.
And I don’t believe that Christmas being still more than three months away. Until then, I’ll have to win the lottery or get a magic wand to make a lot of money.
Though my wallet is scant (Christine, have mercy on my poor wallet!), it’s Impossible not to โ€œLOVEโ€ TEMPTALIA !!!!!!!!!!

Oh my god, I love this. Not a fan of shimmer, but I could mayyyybe live with sheen — and I really like that these were made to sort of swirl/pop to add just a bit of extra brightness to the apples of the cheek!

I think you show her blushes better than she did on the videos. This one looks absolutely fantastic! I must add it to my neverending list of wants.

God this looks SO beautiful! I already have springsheen from Mac and I love the glow that it gives. But what I really like about this blush is that it’s pink and cool-toned! If I ever have the chance to purchase a CT product, I think this blush will be it!

Thanks for the amazing reviews btw! I don’t comment a lot, so just want to add it now. When I want to buy something (more expensive) I always look at your site for reviews ^^
