BTW: Goss Makeup Artist did a series of videos on the line. He bought everything! Here's the shadow video because it's so tempting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jwwk6yvVXLc
Thanks for posting!! I want so many of these palettes! I so hope we'll eventually be able to get them here in the U.S.

Seeing these (too frosty/metallic for my taste) I think I am passing for the time being. I decided to get a few eye shadow stick instead :)

For you ladies who have access to the line, I thought you might enjoy these swatches of her colour chameleon shadow pencils:

They look pretty spectacular.
Oh, myyy.
Dark pearl and bronzed garnet for starters, yes.

I have Dark Pearl, Golden Quartz, Amethyst Aphrodisiac. I LOVE THESE. Dark Pearl is wonderful for everyday and I used AA at the weekend for a smokey eye with my Dior BE quint (used the darkest teal from that).

I need to buy the whole collection of these!

I would love to try the foundation, but have no idea what shade to buy. Even with the swatches on Charlotte Tilbury's site and the swatches at the end of the Goss youtube video. It's just too hard to tell if they'd be a good match, plus I have no idea if the shades are warm or cool toned. If anyone has any insight, I'm between NW20 and NW25. Thanks!!

I got a gift box of some of her products for my birthday. Made a quick album up of everything and added some swatches at the end. http://imgur.com/a/gMhRk

Thanks for this! The foundation sample packet is actually a pretty brilliant idea. Velvet Underground looks like my kind of color. When you say synthetic vanilla, would you say the scent is more obvious than MAC's lipsticks (if you're familiar)?

As I was wearing it I was trying to place why it was so familiar. It took me a while but it is pretty much like the MAC ones but a bit stronger. I can get past it! The formula wears well on me but the scent lingers longer than I'd like.

It turns out my foundation match is pretty good but I may need to test out the lighter one. You get 5ml in the sachets which for me is enough for 2-3 days since I don't use much.

Has anyone heard if/when CT products are going to be sold in the US? I just am trying to hold out so I don't have to pay ridiculous shipping costs through Selfridges...

"Very soon", according to her. It doesn't help much, but at least it's something! https://twitter.com/CTilburyMakeup/status/429291974903226368

They take off the VAT for international orders. If you bought enough you'd break even in savings to have shipping almost technically free.

You could find a Brit to forward it on to you too. Standard non tracking postage is a lot cheaper than £25 from Selfridges if you're buying 2-4 items.

Except certain products -- namely anything with an SPF rating -- can't be shipped to the US just yet. And the shipping charges to the States are pretty high (£14.95 = about $24.65 USD). Not worth it unless you buy a lot of things. I'd rather wait for when her products have a US-based distributor.

VAT may be removed but it doesn't change the fact the shipping charges are still ridiculously high. (Or that I'd rather wait for her line to have a US distributor.)

No worse than how Sephora is handling shipping to here tbh. You can always find someone to forward things on from the UK form CT's range, I do it fairly often right now.
