Charlotte Tilbury X Norman Parkinson Collection

"With this collection, I not only wanted to immortalise Norman Parkinson in makeup form, but also capture the DNA of his vision of beauty: he was an alchemist with light, capturing the sun and the differing effects of mood-lighting on the skin in a really unique way." - Charlotte Tilbury

She's done it again. Charlotte Tilbury has drawn inspiration from legendary photographer Norman Parkinson to create a collection that captures the youth-enhancing displayed through his lens, and allows you to literally paint your face in it every day. The Norman Parkinson Collection consists of 5 makeup products, and 2 makeup bags with Parkinson's work showcased on each.

As usual, the products are amazing, but the packaging are also true works of art. This is a collection to display on your vanity! The product line includes:

Film Star Bronze & Glow in Sun Tan and Sun Light: This amped up version of the original Filmstar Bronze & Glow glides on and blends flawlessly to create the ultimate natural glow. The cream texture creates a second-skin appearance.
Dreamy Glow Highlighter: This powder highlighter is the first in Charlotte's entire line to offer a cooler pink undertone for a moonlit effect.
Colour of Youth Healthy, Happy Lip & Cheek Glow: Created to emulate the flush of love and happiness, this cream blush blends smoothly over nearly any base and dries down without leaving a sticky finish on lips or cheeks.
Matte Revolution 1975 Red Lipstick: This is my first experience with the matte lipstick collection, and I'm impressed. 1975 in particular is a gorgeous, classic red meant to complement the bronzed skin and summer glow the rest of the collection provides.
Matt Revolution Lipstick in Miss Kensington: Charlotte knows nudes, so it's no surprise that this isn't my first from her. The others I have are from the K.I.S.S.I.N.G. collection, and inspired by the actual lip colors of the actresses they're named after. Nude Kate and Penelope Pink have brown undertones, while Miss Kensington is more pink leaning for an "English rose" color meant to complement fairer skin tones.

For inspiration on what to pair these products with, Charlotte has created two looks that embody personas of the era. The Miss 1979 Look and Miss Kensington Look utilize some of my absolute favorites from this makeup line to create a complete look from start to finish.

Overall, this is a drool-worthy collection. Charlotte hit the nail on the head with this one. And, while the collection might be a bit of a splurge, the beautiful packaging makes each product a true collectible with practical functionality.
