Charlotte Tilbury’s domain. After all, she is the queen of Hollywood glamour. The brand’s Black Friday event is always a great opportunity to save on your Christmas gifts, whether you’re treating yourself or shopping for a friend.
The brand is yet to announce their 2023 savings but we anticipate that they’ll be stellar. As we eagerly anticipate any updates (
sign up here to be the first in the know), we’ll be revisiting our deep dive into Charlotte Tilbury’s bestsellers; working out what we want to treat ourselves to first. Of course, it’s hard to resist the glitz and glam of Charlotte Tilbury makeup, but it’s the skincare that has us repeat buying. The Magic Serum Crystal Elixir is a staple in my own bathroom vanity.
