Colour of Youth: Charlotte Tilbury ♥ Norman Parkinson Lip & Cheek Glow

Some beauty products are so beautiful that you simply have to have them and that is certainly the case for the entire Norman Parkinson collection by Charlotte Tilbury. The retro photos used on the packaging make this collection ooze old Hollywood glamour.

I – somehow – managed to restrict myself to a single item from the collection: the Colour of Youth Lip & Cheek Glow. When this parcel arrived, I ripped it open and stared in wonder at the lovely picture of Norman’s wife Wenda on the rose golden compact.

Normally, I cannot wait to use new beauty products but was just so pretty that it took me a while to disturb the pristine look and use it… but I am so glad I did. What an amazing product!

Charlotte Tilbury Norman Parkinson Colour of Youth Lip & Cheek GlowThe cream product has an amazing vibrant rosy pink color. It might look a little scary in the pan, but translates to the must beautiful rosy flush on the cheeks. The product has an inherent glow that gives you an amazing flushed look without looking unnatural. Pat the cream product onto your cheeks using your fingers or a brush and it will stay put throughout the day.

Charlotte Tilbury Norman Parkinson Colour of Youth Lip & Cheek GlowThe Colour of Youth can also be used on the lips and I have to say this is my first multi-use product that works equally well on lips and cheeks. The hydrating formula and slight glow translate into a pretty rosy lip that feels weightless and comfortable.

In this pic, I am wearing Colour of Youth on my lips and cheeks. I tried to catch the amazing glow this gives to my cheeks in real life, but is was very difficult. Definitely a product best seen in real life to see the full affect.

Charlotte Tilbury has again created a beautiful and high quality product that will make you smile whenever you reach for the compact. This does not come cheap: Colour of Youth is $58/£40/€55. A great product to treat yourself to and an equally divine gift for special occasions.


Sommige makeup producten zijn zo mooi dat je ze gewoon moet hebben en dat is zeker het geval met de hele Norman Parkinson collectie van Charlotte Tilbury. De retro fotos op de verpakking geven deze gele collectie een glamoureuze Hollywood uitstraling.

Ik wist mezelf – vraag me niet hoe – te beperken tot een enkel product: de Colour of Youth Lip & Cheek Glow. Ik trok het pakje uit handen van de postbode, scheurde het open en staarde naar de mooie foto van Norman’s vrouw Wenda op de rose gouden compact.

Normaal gesproken kan ik niet wachten om nieuwe producten uit te proberen maar deze was zo mooi dat ik mezelf echt moest overtuigen om haar te gebruiken…maar ik ben blij dat ik het toch gedaan heb. Wat een geweldig product!

Dit creme product heeft een levendige roze kleur. Het ziet er misschien wat fel uit in het compact, maar dit vertaalt naar een mooie rozen gloed op de wangen. Het product heeft een lichte glans die er natuurlijk uitziet. Breng de creme blush aan met je vingens or een kwast en het blijft de hele dag goed zitten.

De Colour of Youth kan ook gebruikt worden op de lippen en dit is het eerste multifunctionele product dat ik geprobeerd heb dat overal even goed werkt. De hydraterende formule en lichte glans geven je zacht roze lippen met een gewichtsloos en comfortabel gevoel.

In de foto draag ik de Colour of Youth op mijn wangen en lippen. ik heb geprobeerd om de geweldige glans op mijn wangen te fotogrageren maar dat was bijna onmogelijk. Dit is echt een product waarvan je het volledige effect alleen in het echt kunt zien.

Charlotte Tilbury heeft weer een mooi en kwalitatief goed product gecreeerd waar je meteen blij van word als je het uit je tas haalt. Het is helaas niet goedkoop: de Colour of Youth kost €55 en is te bestellen op de website van Charlotte Tilbury (er is helaas/gelukkig nog geen winkel in Nederland). Echt een mooi product om je jezelf op te trakteren en een even geweldig kado voor speciale gelegenheden.

      She is just perfect, but a little pricey so I understand the restrain…I initially wanted the whole line, but well.
      The color is amazing and the glow is so pretty 🙂 xx Anne

    It’s simply GORGEOUS. And the glow it gives you is so lovely. I can’t believe you had such willpower to restrict yourself to just ONE item. I would have bought anything with the special packaging just for the packaging alone! Hence when I’m not allowed anywhere near a makeup counter, lol! 😛

      Isn’t it just too pretty?!
      It was though, I pretty much wanted the entire collection but it was a little too expensive with the move. Thankfully we don’t have a counter yet here, otherwise it would be a disaster!

    This looks really beautiful – in the packaging and on you! Just can’t wait to try CT! I get the feeling its a brand that is best buying in person…or is online a safer method? 😉

      So pretty right!
      I don’t have a counter, so I did a lot of blog review research and ordered online, but I think a counter visit might be better (and worse, since you would buy way too much stuff ;)).
