Instant Soft-Focus Beauty Flash Primer
I purchased this as my housemate is incredibly good at make up and she swears by this stuff! I was using the mac primer which was good - it made my make up last long but this primer is fabulous! I always envy people who have pictures of themselves with gorgeous dewy skin but now I can have it too! This primer has glitter in it which gives you a very natural glow I've also got quite sensitive skin but found this worked wonders with my skin. It really gives you such a natural radiant glow and when I first used it, I went on a night out got a little worse for wear and crashed in my bed with my make up on! Make up just looked the same as the night before! Thank you Charlotte x
Recently purchased this, and wasn't sure, as I have oily skin, but I needn't have worried, it's gives my skin a gorgeous dewy, glowy look,,which is needed when your heading towards 40!
Only tried it alone as yet, but definately worth the money! Charlotte you are a genius!!!
I tried (and bought) this product for the first time at the weekend after reading wonderful reviews. The product goes onto the skin very nicely and does not leave any 'glitter' on the face, but makes the skin look really radient. The skin does not feel heavy or clogged after using, even under foundation.
I have not tried this product alone yet, only under foundation, but will be taking it on holiday with me to wear on an evening for that lovely holiday glow!
I love this! It gives your skin a very natural, glowy look. It smoothes out pores and lines and makes your skin look so much better! My favourite product by a mile.
Product is fantastic and works well on both women and men, as others have said it is not glittery at all!
Recently used on holiday and the amount of compliments would get me buying again and again.
The bottle however is cheap looking and clearly shows you how much the bottle is under filled. Such a shame!
I know the type of product it is dictates how it needs to be stored and then applied (ie. tube needs to be squeeze as it is a liquid product) but so much more thought could have gone into this! It doesn't look right sat next to the magic cream or miracle glow cleanser! Could almost be from a different range!
This is such a life saver of a product.
The product is light and does feel like it's clogging pores, even when used under foundation. It just adds an extra something special to your routine and makes you look and feel like the best version of yourself, which is all anyone wants really.
It's even great when used alone - for example on a hungover day, when putting on a full face is too much, but going bare faced would scare small children!
I have bought this for the first time, and I both people I saw - I have been unwell recently - said how well I was looking. I used the primer and the foundation, and I did feel I looked well, rested, just good. When I say one of the people was my partner who wanted to know what was different as I looked great you can tell it did its job!
In real life, Wonderglow looks a tad darker and less rosy than in picture: warmer and more vibrant. It is neither too pearly, nor glittery. Like champaign, it has a skillful balance of bubbly and sparkly!
Because it enhances skin glow naturally and provides some slight tone correction, I usually skip foundation all together for an easy-going everyday look.
Unlike many primers, it doesn't peel into those annoying balls. Believe me, this plus is far from neglectable! So far, it is compatible with my silicon-based BB/ CC cream, water-based foundation or even other primers.
But not unlike many primers, less is more (hope this triple negation makes sense! ;-p).
Excessive amount will give the face a metallic sheen, which is a really dated and aging look: in other words, a far cry away from the product's very purpose! That's why I prefer to mix a 1:5 ratio with my day cream.
It feels very comfortable on my combination to dry skin. But one day, I got heavy handed and it gave me a tingling, almost stinging sensation for about 15 min. Other users got the same reaction on their skin. Not sure why, since I haven't detected any irritant in the formula before buying.
Also, I would really love an opaque packaging, rather than a transparent one.
Opaque (or at least translucent) packaging protects products from damaging light and abrupt temperature peaks, thus prolonging their shelf life.
Keeping in mind that Wonderglow is a primer to be used sparingly, this change would just make sense.
Fair enough, transparent packaging allows you to see through the quantity of product remaining. But a transparent tube is so cheap, contrary to what CT usually serves us!
Even professional primers cost nearly twice less; then, for £38.50, a much higher-grade tube material would be legitimate.
Apart from this aspect, I find that Wonderglow operates his magic full blast for evening looks and photos. True to its claims, it gives a soft focus finish and a candle-lit glow.
I have the same opinion regarding "Filmstar Killer Cheekbones", those products really look their best under artificial light. You're welcome to read the review I posted about this contouring product indeed.
Don't hesitate to apply Wonderglow on areas other than your face: a delicate touch on shoulders; or a strategic dab on the cleavage; a few strokes on the shin... will attract all the right lights a camera needs to capture.
Amazing,amazing primer it makes your face fres looks and dewy radiant looks. Is light on your skin and makes your face flawless with the CT foundation. It my first time bought this CT products I must admit it's brilliant. Tried every brands from chanel,mac,smash box,bare minerals all brands but this one is amazing.
Highly recommend this magic glow. It suits to all kin type and I have sensitive skin but it goes well on my face.
Purchased on a whim and what a great decision. This product doesn't give coverage but what it does do is prime the skin so it looks amazing. Not glittery but beautiful healthy looking skin! Invest invest invest! !!
So after getting the Retoucher ( see separate review , exceptional product) I also remembered Caroline Hiron did a " skin lit from with in" type cheat sheet . So I dig about in Caroline Hiron's website again as I was sure I had seen her speak about this product ( if Caroline has something good to say about a product you know it a winner ) . So I put this into my basket on a total whim , ok so a forty quid whim to get a free delivery but it was pay day and I was giddy , you know how it is.
Product arrived and I started to panic while opening the beautifully wrapped /packaged product thinking " oh no " I'm 40 and I have bought a glittery product to go on my face am I crazy , I'm going to look like a disco ball , as soon as I was distracted by the wrapping these thoughts drifted out of my head.
Still mesmerized with the retoucher I begin to put the wonderglow on my face.
I stare back at myself but instead of seeing glitter and my face age overnight I am greeted with a subtle dewy glow , my skin looks moist - radiant HAPPY . Imagine that first gentle flush that comes across your face as your start working out or something else exciting.
I double checked , ran to a mirror better light ( by better I mean harsher ) nope still the same.
The result I feel I need less foundation , its is not glittery at all - just glowy , just dewy .
Happy skin , happy me .
Thanks again Charlotte amazing product .
Ps Thanks Caroline Another awesome recommendation.
I ordered this recently after reading a glowing (!) review by Caroline Hirons on products that make you glow. I am definitely not disappointed! I have used it religiously since and think it is a fantastic product. I use it after skin care, first as a thin layer on its own (which looks lovely in itself) and then mixed with my BB cream (currently the new estee lauder one which is great but a tiny bit thick for me, need to try Wonder light when can get to store!) and the effect is really lovely - a subtle sheeny glow that lasts all day. This is a healthy "lit from within" glow that makes you look radiant, rather than a shimmery or glittery glow that some of the radiant/luminous foundations can leave you with. Really beautiful and very versatile - I have also put it over make up at the end of the day to perk everything up. Highly recommend!
Another knock out product from the Amazing genius that is Charlotte Tilbury. I wear it after applying Magic Cream and the combination creates beautiful healthy glowing skin.
Having combination skin I worry about looking oily with glow products or of them slipping off. This is totally different from anything else I've tried, glow without sparkle or shine! So lightweight but stays all day.
I'd be happy to wear it alone but it also looks incredible with Light Wonder foundation for a truly flawless complexion. A little goes a long way, the tester packet still has loads in it and I've been using it for five days. I love to put it on all over, then add my foundation and then add a little more to highlight.
I imagine it will look even more amazing on tanned skin but it does a great job of warming up my pale washed out winter skin tone. It's so light I forget I am wearing it but am constantly reminded by everyone commenting on how well I look!
I can't recommend this enough but saying that I feel like a broken record because I haven't found a product that isn't amazing, they do everything promised and so much more.
I have never before been brand loyal, I have Chanel, Lancome, By Terry, Estée Lauder, Hourglass, etc etc in my make up box but I'm getting rid of the lot, if it's not Charlotte Tilbury I'm not buying it.
Very disappointed with this product, I see no visible difference to my skin when applied. I would definitely not re purchase.
The amazing healthy glow aside, that was expected, I would like to highlight the incredible peachy feel that the Wonderglow gives to my oily skin. Who could have imagined that I could get this softest skin ever with a primer. I had to think for a while what I had changed in my skin care regime until I realized what it was that gave this powdery soft skin. A must product in my makeup bag.
When I use this, I actually think I'm Jennifer Lopez my skin looks amazing and glowing without looking shiny. So many people say how amazing my skin looks. I use the multi miracle glow then the magic cream and this and wow is all I can say I'm in love with all of Charlotte's products not one thing I have bought has let me down everything is beautiful. if you want gorgeous glowing skin I would 100% buy this product!
Like another reviewer I bought Wonderglow along with a few other products from the line after coming across the brand by chance and watching the 'How to' videos with Charlotte. Initially this wouldn't be a product I would generally invest in given that there are so many other products I am dying to try from the range and was apprehensive due to the price tag. I have tried primers before and never been bowled over however after using Wonderglow I believe it is worth every penny.
A small amount of product goes a long way so you only need to use sparingly. It blends beautifully and the texture is very light. Wonderglow feels like a second skin. The product smells amazing and the amount of shimmer is just right. It makes my skin look lit from within.
If you decide to invest in anything from Charlotte Tilbury I would definitely recommend this be on your list!
Since using Wonderglow so many people have commented on how "well" I am looking . It is the perfect primer under foundation and gives an amazing boost to your skin when applied on top. Fabulous product that I now couldn't live without.
I'm very happy I tried this, I've used a lot of these types of products before, some don't blend all that well, and some have been far too shimmery or glittery and not especially suitable for a daytime/natural look. This however works really well under foundation, mixed with foundation, or dabbed onto the high points of the face, cheekbones etc., which is my preferred way of using it. Colour wise it is a really pretty champagne/gold colour, I am still quite tanned at the moment and tend to tan a fairly golden colour but this still shows up nicely and gives a lovely finish to the skin.. I actually think it will look even better in the winter when I am paler. You only need a tiny amount, so it should be long lasting too. Love it x
I bought Wonderglow along with several other products after watching Charlotte's 'How To' videos. I am now in love with everything! Wonderglow is a dream to apply and leaves skin looking like you've had eight hours sleep and drank eight glasses of water (even if you haven't). Can't wait to try even more of Charlotte's stunningly packaged products.
I bought Wonderglow along with a number of other products from the line to create a perfect look for my wedding. I have been delighted with all my products but this one in particular is outstanding and one of the best products I've ever used (and I've used many!). It's amazing mixed with foundation but is just as fabulous used on its own, which is how I used it whilst on my honeymoon. With slightly tanned skin it evened out my complexion and added an amazing luminosity; basically it does what it says and gives a totally wonderful glow! Holy Grail Product.
Another gorgeous product. I applied this before foundation and it gave my skin immediate luminosity. Using this with the Miracle Glow and Magic Cream really helps to even out my skin tone and make the skin look refreshed. This glides on seamlessly and when used with foundation it gives your skin an extra pop that you don't get from using foundation on its own. Make up bag staple!
I have created a miracle fix to turn around tired, dull, dehydrated skin in a beauty flash. It’s called WONDERGLOW and is powered by a breakthrough Fluorescent Core Light Diffuser that cleverly steals UV light from its surroundings and re-emits it as skin luminosity to disguise and transform drab, sleep-deprived skin. WONDERGLOW is a visionary new anti-age hybrid. It’s a cross between an anti-age elixir and a complexion-enhancing light diffuser to give your skin an instant “spotlight” effect. Collagen-boosting peptides and patented wrinkle-preventing ingredients are fused with light-reflecting microspheres with a fluorescent core that fill in wrinkles and scatter light to blur away lines and flood skin with luminosity. Create the definition of youthful, healthy skin: glowing, hydrated and effervescent. It can be used underneath my LIGHT WONDER foundation, on its own for a relaxed, effortlessly dewy look or on top of makeup through-out the day to give your skin an instant pick-me-up – it’s one of my seven wonders for your skin!
• The state of the art Fluorescent Core Light Diffuser absorbs UV particles from the sun & re-emits their energy as visible light, flooding the skin with powerful luminosity.
• Soft focus ceramic microspheres “roll” into wrinkles and over imperfect skin tone, scattering light to create an anti-age optical illusion. Wrinkles are disguised and skin tone is corrected.
• The anti-age hero, BioNymph Peptide Complex, multi-tasks in the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, improve skin elasticity & generally smooth things over. This is combined with wrinkle-preventing matrikines that recharge the skin’s natural renewal rhythm.
• Sodium Hyaluronate forms a film of hyaluronic acid over the skin, sealing in moisture, whilst extracts of Wild Pansy promote the renewal of hyaluronic acid in the skin surface to retain and flood the skin with moisture.
• Floral accents of rose hip oil and camellia oil regenerate, restructure and moisturise the skin.
• Fill 40ml
• Carton Dimensions (mm) 41 x 22 x 110
WONDERGLOW has multiple uses – perfect for an easy glow on the go!
1. For an effortless, “make-up free” dewy look: moisturise your skin with CHARLOTTE’S MAGIC CREAM, then apply WONDERGLOW, with your hands or using a brush, to the entire face focussing on the top of the cheekbones to give your face an instant lift.
2. To enhance your luminosity under make-up: after moisturising, apply a fine layer of WONDERGLOW to your entire face, using your hands or a brush, focussing on your cheekbones. Apply my LIGHT WONDER foundation on top for optimal, luminous coverage.
3. As a desk ‘til dusk pick me up, apply a walnut sized amount of WONDERGLOW to your cheekbones and brow bone, on top of day-worn make-up to lift and perk up your complexion.
