Last year, Vogue posted a video of Madison Beer using the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand. The singer dabs a few dots of the highlighter-blusher hybrid onto her cheeks and the bridge of her nose, blends effortlessly with a sponge, and is left with the most perfect ‘lit from within’ glow. After watching the video, I immediately purchased the exact shade Beer used (Pinkgasm, if you were wondering). A wise move, considering that within a matter of days, every single shade of the wand was sold out, and it’s been almost impossible to get hold of ever since. In fact, every restock in the past few years has sold out within record speed, so this is an urgent PSA that although the Charlotte Tilbury highlighter wands are (finally!) back in stock, you’re going to need to move pretty fast if you want to get your hands on one.
There are six shades of the highlighter wands. Two are straight-up highlighters in classic golden hues— perfect for brightening and illuminating the high points of your face. The other four are highlighter-blusher hybrids, delivering major glow and a tint of colour in varying shades of pink. All six have a thin, gel-gloss texture and soft-focus pearlescent finish which looks fresh and dewy on the skin. If you subscribe to the no makeup-makeup ‘clean girl’ look and are already a fan of the (also always sold out) Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, then the Beauty Light Wands will be right up your street. I’ve truly never used a highlighter or blusher that looks so natural.
