Beauty Bits + Bobs Including the Charlotte Tibury Launch + Labor Day Sales

Above: The Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Killer Cheekbones Bronze + Glow…this pair of finely-milled powders gets constant use!

Good day to you, lovely readers!  Before running off for some family time today, I wanted to share a round of beauty news including details surrounding the hotly-anticipated stateside arrival of the gorgeous Charlotte Tilbury Beauty line and some great Labor Day Weekend sale options.

Kindly scroll on for all the details as well as the Bottom Line…
First up, the launch of the stunning Charlotte Tilbury beauty line…ever since procuring the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Killer Cheekbones Bronze + Glow (reviewed HERE), I have been enchanted and beyond eager to try other products from the collection.  Now that they will be available in the US in the coming weeks, that dream shall become a reality!
  • The line will launch online first on September 2nd at, Nordstrom, Bergdorf Goodman and Net-A-Porter and 
  • Then, Charlotte is partnering up with Bergdorf Goodman in New York (10/7) and Nordstrom in Los Angeles at The Grove (10/10-11) for MASSIVE launch events.  More details to follow!
  • Launch events will also be hosted with Nordstrom in other major markets including Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Orange County, Washington D.C. and Las Vegas through Spring 2015.

Charlotte’s Beauty Philosophy:

“Beauty is not an exclusive club – there are no unattractive women, just some that don’t know the power of make-up,” says Charlotte Tilbury. “I was shocked to find out that 50% of women do not engage with make-up and the reasons are: they don’t know how to use it, they don’t know what suits them, they don’t have the time. I wanted to revolutionize the retail experience for these women. Even as a professional makeup artist, I walk onto the Beauty Hall floor and want to run in the opposite direction.  There’s so much choice and so little direction, help and problem-solving and I wanted to set my brand apart from this.”

What will YOU be choosing from this magnificent line?

Above: Happy Labor Day Weekend!  By the way, a few new braid tutorials coming your way in the near future…as a preview, this is the 5-strand braid.
Next up, the holiday weekend brings a bevy of sales online…here are a few that I will be checking out:
  • Sephora: Summer Sendoff sale…up to 75% off of beauty…online only.
  • Topshop: 100’s of items, deeply discounted for their final clearance sale.
  • Nordstrom: clearance sale…up to 40% off in every major category.
  • Neiman Marcus: Real Deal 40% off of regular prices…a perfect time to stock up for fall looks.
  • Anthropologie: An extra 20% off sale items…100’s of new styles just added.

Bottom Line: I hope you are as excited about the Charlotte Tilbury stateside launch as I am!  I will be carefully monitoring the sites where the line will be launched (charlottetilbury.comNordstrom, Bergdorf Goodman and Net-A-Porter and and can’t wait to add to my currently modest CT collection.  Also, if you end up taking advantage of the sales this holiday weekend (some of which are listed above), do let me know what you end up procuring!
Have a beautiful day…I will be continuing to respond to all of your wonderful comments and emails over the next few days.  Good things ahead, including an FOTD, my August Favorites video, new fall product releases, some haircare tutorials and a few novel discoveries ; )

    First off, so excited to see that braid tutorial!! Stunning! Also, Im so excited for the Charlotte Tilbury line! Can't decide what to try out first… though, knowing my shopping tendencies, it'll probably be a lipstick 😉

    The new Matte lipsticks from CT look amazing, going to order from her new US site on Tuesday, since I don't see the newer stuff up on nordies. Also, today I'm wearing my sample of Diors Star foundation and holy crap! I've literally checked myself from every light, and my imperfections (slight scarring, discoloration, pores) are GOOOOOOONE. I'm running to buy this in a few. For reference, I'm currently rotating the new TF foundation, the new Mercier one, radiant from CDP, and bobbi new skin stick foundation, but as much as I LOVE all of those…thie way this does something to the light is phenomenal and weird as if I'm not looking at MY own skin!

      Hi! So you think the CD Star is superior to the new TF? I'm going to check out the LM tmrw and I'm still on the fence about the TF. I'd like to get the CD Star or the TF maybe not both unless everybody agrees they're both bomb.

      Hi Anon,

      Glad to hear that you are enjoying the Dior Star foundation…I didn't have as positive of an experience (oddly enough, it looked slightly heavy and unnatural on me…the total opposite of what people have been saying about it!) but may give it another spin when it gets a bit less hot. Thanks for sharing all of your foundation love!
