Charlotte Tilbury Brightening Youth Glow Primer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 168.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely base with glow not gleam I wear this on its own over Magic cream, with concealer on any shadows or blemishes,, or under Magic foundation and loose powder when I wear a full make up. It adds a very subtle glow without looking greasy. It helps make up last and just the feel of it on my skin makes me feel glowy and healthy. It is expensive, but I reckon on the tube lasting me at least 6 months. I will repurchase. It doesn't create a startling change but somehow it makes me look better. I am 62 and I know nothing will really make me look twenty years younger, but I recommend this product if you want a good base for your make-up or want a more natural glowy look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best colour corrector I've used This really works, I have super sensitive and quite blotchy and very VERY dull skin, this instantly transforms it gives a lovely natural looking glow it is not a glittery look in any way, But a lovely all over Glow! I like that it some how gives a slight pumping effect, It really seems to tone down my redness which all other products from cheap to high end have failed to do, It has a very slight rose sent to it which is barely there and in no way over powering. I love the packaging of CT products so luxurious compared to any other brand out there. I actually bought this by mistake I ment to purchase the healthy unisex glow, but I'm so glad I got this and will continue to repurchase as a little goes along way . Right off to buy the health glow now :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute magic! Only had this a few days & I’m blown away by it. This is quite a significant purchase but being a CT fan I went for it thinking I was going to be one of those it did nothing for.. I was so wrong! I’ve found I don’t need moisturiser under it in the mornings, I suffer oily t-zone but with this I barely got oily through the day, my make up went on smoother & I look more polished. After the evening cleanse I noticed that my skin looked plump (in a good way) brighter, smoother & dare I say it.. younger (I’ll be 47 in 5 days) & definitely less blotchy/uneven skin toned. I actually can’t believe how much this has transformed my face in such a short space of time! This for me is now an beauty essential & I’ll never be without it. Thank you Charlotte x

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NOT for sensitive skin This is undoubtedly a lovely product, the texture and glow it leaves on the skin is really beautiful and the packaging is gorgeous like all CT products. However, this is not something I would recommend to anyone who suffers from psoriasis or eczema. As someone with psoriasis I’m always on the look out for skincare product reviews from those who also suffer from psoriasis so I wanted to share my experience with this primer. Although all skin reacts differently, this made me break out with patches on my face within a few hours of application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I asked for a couple of sample sachets from my local store and have noticed that in less than two weeks the redness across my cheeks is less noticeable and my pores have shrunk, amazing! I use the CT full Magic Foundation over the top, and am using less product now resutling in the same coverage. I only needed to use a tiny amount of the primer, each sample sachet has lasted approximately one week - to give an idea of how much to use. I've just ordered the full size product, can't wait for it to arrive!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn’t live up to the hype I was so excited to get this because I had heard so much about it and so my face would have a nice glow underneath my Charlotte Tilbury Magic foundation. I didnt notice a glow or shimmer at all and the “magic” foundation is very heavy, it’s not any better than a drugstore brand. I buy a lot of expensive products that work the way they’re supposed to, and I have to say with all the hype and the high prices, it’s not any better than any of the other primers that I’ve got in my cabinet including a couple of cheap brands that I’ve tried. The only thing I did like was the packaging, it was very nicely wrapped in a box with tissue paper and a bow. Too bad, I’m very disappointed, I expected so much from these products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite make- up topper/ brightener I adore Brightening Youth Glow primer for the smooth , light, bright look it gives my made- up face- adding a pretty glow to my cheeks and forehead that gives me, at 62, a lovely skin tone. I use it daily and receive many compliments on my skin. I recommended it to a friend who remarked that my skin looked fresh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG!!! I. AM. BEYOND. AMAZED!!! I bought this and used it for the first time with the Magic Cream and the Magic foundation! OH MY! I am new to the foundation and liked it so I decided to try a primer and chose this one and ended purchasing the travel size magic cream that was in the skin goddess gift set. I used the magic cream, applied the primer, then the magic Foundation and finished with the air brush flawless powder foundation and unmediated Loved it every step of the way. I had to even take a selfie it looked so good- mind you I’m a 46 yo woman. I teach PE and I have sweated all day- as in head soaked - sweated all day. I was so busy I didn’t have time to look in the mirror. When I got home and went to get it the bath I looked at my face and was truly and utterly flabbergasted! Completely shocked!!! It still looked beautiful! I have never been more stoked or happy over any purchase I have made like this one! I am THRILLED!!! Will definitely be a permanent part of my routine!!! Thank you CT!! I’m in love with your products and my skin WITH your products!!
