New & Now: Charlotte Tilbury Contour and Highlight Wands

Updated 01/31/18

With every new Charlotte Tilbury launch comes a stampede of makeup lovers and cries of "Take our money!" The latest glow-giving launch is no exception. Byrdie first reported on Charlotte's new Hollywood Contour Wand ($38) and Beauty Light Wand ($38) a few weeks ago, but there's nothing quite like having the actual product in your hand and being able to take in all of its creamy, light-reflecting, blendable glory. 

In the video above, I take the two complementary products for a spin, and to put it shortly, I'm extremely impressed. I've always loved her Filmstar Bronze & Glow ($68), but lately I have been forgoing powders for cream formulas, so these new wands fill that void perfectly.

The contour wand comes in two shades, Light to Medium and Medium to Dark, and the Light to Medium shade I tried is the perfect shade of taupe-brown. It actually is a bit cooler than the shade it appears in the video, so those deterred by the warmth should take note.

And the highlighter wand has a pearlescent, glowy, gel formula that's truly remarkable; I'm honestly surprised it hasn't sold out yet. It's the one product I reach for whenever I feel like my face needs a pick-me-up. It's basically like a shot of B12 for tired, lackluster skin. Because the formula is more of a liquid-gel than traditional cream, it doesn't sit on top of the skin and spreads into a really gorgeous, shimmery sheen that catches light from every angle without making you look like a Christmas ornament.


Charlotte, you've hit it out of the park yet again with these two launches. More, please.
