I’m a product junkie, plain and simple. I like perusing high end and low end - a designation that is increasingly based on marketing instead of quality - and finding gems to add to both my kit and personal collection. There are also artists that I idolize and their product recommendations are like gospel. One of these artists is Charlotte Tilbury.
One of the things that people have consistently praised from her line is her Magic Cream - a mix of rosehip and camellia oil, vitamin E, and hyaluronic acid, etc. - that is said to plump and moisturize the skin. Hyaluronic acid is well known as a humectant because it draws moisture to the skin. For brides with uneven skin tones and dryness, priming products that include this ingredient can really help not only with long term skincare but with makeup application.
I got my hands on magic cream after stalking the site and doing tons of research on customer reviews. I tried it out for the first time with my bride Marlee, whose skin has some minor textural issues and hyper-pigmentation. I prepped her skin with Garnier Micellar Water and followed it up with a face massage using magic cream and let her skin settle. Once we started her makeup her skin felt noticeably smoother and softer and her pores were less prominent. I used a little mattifying primer on her T-zone, but the magic cream was the main primer and not only did her makeup go on much smoother than at her trial, it blended out without as much effort.
I don't know how they formulated this product but it was amazing to work with and has become a staple in my bridal kit as a result. The product runs about $100 for the 50mL jar but a little goes a long way.
This is Marlee after I completed her makeover.
Have you heard of Magic Cream before? Would you try it?
