Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Swatches
So this little tube of magic comes in a brilliant shade range and I have three of them to show you.
Fair 2, Fair 3 and Medium 5:
It is a beautiful creamy texture that melts into the skin covering imperfections and brightening the appearance of the complexion as it goes. I love it – I knew I would.

There are some great ingredients in there that prevent water loss, help maintain collagen, and boost radiance, and also a great combination of different elements that make the formula nice and long-wearing.
I love the delivery system – the sponge applicator suits the formula perfectly and you simply swipe it on and then tap into the skin for complexion perfection.
Before & After
I thought I would show you Magic Away on top of a minimal base. Here I have a very light layer of tinted moisturiser:
And her I am with the Magic Away applied:
I love what this does to my skin. It’s amazing that it works as well on the under-eye area as it does on blemishes and redness. What a dream! It has an almost elastic texture that stretches over the skin, smoothing everything out, with a lovely luminous finish which, of course, I love. It is fabulous.
The Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Liquid Concealer is £24 and is available HERE* now.
