Finally Cardiff is stepping up on the retail front and we’re getting some really good brands coming to the capital. Most recently, in terms of beauty we’ve got Jo Malone, Tom Ford, Giorgio Armani and now Charlotte Tilbury. It’s really nice to feel like the city is growing and getting more interest from the bigger luxury brands and it means you don’t have to do all that shopping online.
The counter is in the John Lewis store at the end of the Hayes and occupies a pretty big space. It’s totally gorgeous, kind of like an old Hollywood movie star’s dressing room and they have a huge product offering. I tried out some pieces while I was there and the first thing I went for was the Goddess Skin Clay Mask. It’s so brightening and perfecting, I felt like this would be perfect for days where my skin is looking dull or tired.
I then picked up the Lipliner in Pillow Talk because the girl serving me had the same skin tone as me and it looked amazing on her. It’s the perfect pink/nude shade and works really well under a gloss. Lastly I went for the Filmstar Bronze and Glow Palette because this was something I had read the most hype about. I loved the way it blended on my skin and the shade was a good match for my skin tone, which is hard to find to find with bronzers (as I’m super pale!). I was planning on getting the foundation but I didn’t feel like it suited my skin that much, however if your looking for a good colour match they had every shade imaginable.
