Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation Review

March 17, 2018

The Light Wonder foundation is ideal for dry, normal and combination skin types that want sheer, flawless coverage. It contains SPF15 and youth-boosting actives that reduces wrinkles, evens out complexion and smooths complexion for baby-soft skin. As put by the website. It is also oil free.

Out of the two Charlotte Tilbury foundations available, the Light Wonder gets the best reviews. For example on Makeupalley, the Magic Wonder foundation only gets a rating of 2.7 out of 114 reviews. The Light Wonder Foundation gets a rating of 4 out of 61 reviews. Even on the Charlotte Tilbury website, the rating is slightly higher for the Light Wonder.

I have a sample of the Magic Wonder foundation to compare to in the near future.

MORE ON THE FORMULA
The first 4 ingredients are: Cyclopentasiloxane, Water (Aqua), Hydrogenated Didodecene, Titanium Dioxide (Nano). The formula also contains parabens and fragrance. I recommend you research scientific studies on parabens before deciding if they are something you want to avoid or not. Since this foundation contains water, I could see why parabens are needed. I feel the fragrance is totally unnecessary, even if it is subtle.

Be sure to shake it before use as the forumla can separate if sitting for a long time. I assume the container contains a little ball inside for this reason. When shaking it, the smallest micro bubbles will be formed so don't be alarmed when your squeezing some foundation out and it looks a little lumpy for 2 seconds.

THOUGHTS
This is the foundation I go for when I don't want to wear foundation and don't want cause myself acne but I need a little coverage. This product looks really good on skin and evens out complexion a good amount. It will not cover imperfections totally but will blur them. It's got a nice satin finish. I really like that it's lightweight and looks better on skin texture than most full coverage foundations. If you already have nice skin, this would be a great lightweight foundation.

If I were to compare this to any foundation, it looks similar on skin to how the Deciem Serum Foundation looks but that foundation gives a little more coverage. The pigment in the Serum Foundation kind of collects in pores where this foundation doesn't.

The shade Fair 2 is a perfect match for my NC 15-ish skin. I'm quite neutral in undertone. It initally looks yellow in undertone but oxidizes to be more pinky-peach in undertone.

If this foundation interests you, you can find it in Nordstrom and Charlotte Tilbury stores. You can also buy it on the Charlotte Tilbury website and Nordstorm website. The price varies around $60 CAD / $46 USD.
