My Experience with Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Love is the Drug Swish & Pop Blusher:
This blush comes is a very luxurious looking compact with a nice-sized mirror inside. It is quite lightweight and the outer cover does tend to attract fingerprints.
I do dislike the fact that there is no applicator provided which makes this product not so ideal for travel unless you plan on bringing your own brush along.
Shade and Pigmentation:
This blush has 2 different sections of colors in it. The other circle is a light peachy color with a very strong golden sheen whereas the inner circle is bright pink which also contains some golden sheen though not as much as the outer circle.
The pigmentation of the inner pink circle is much stronger than the outer one. Charlotte Tilbury suggests using this by swirling your brush in the outer circle and applying over the cheek and then popping the middle color on the apples of the cheek. I am not a fan of such a precise application with my blush. Also, since the outer color isn’t that pigmented when I use it by itself it doesn’t really provide much color to my skin but does give an ample amount of sheen. It is only when I mix both the shades together, the brighter pink helps provide some color.
Even when both the shades are mixed together the blush still goes sheer on my skin and I do need to build it up in 2-3 layers. The sheen is very apparent when in sunlight but it is very subtle and fine, there is no notable chunks of shimmer or glitter. The shade overall gives a nice beautiful healthy pink color to the cheeks and the golden glow comes across as a picture of health on the face. You do not need a separate highlighter when using this product.
The powder is super finely milled and is silky smooth to touch. It blends easily and does not go on patchy.
The staying power is good. It stayed 6-7 hours on my cheeks.
Overall this is a good blush but it is not the best out there. The lack of pigmentation and applicator are the facts that I dislike. But I do enjoy the silky smooth texture and the beautiful sheen it gives. It is also pretty expensive at hefty price tag of $40 for .28oz/8gm which I admit is a generous quantity.
