I had a sneak preview of the new Charlotte Tilbury X Norman Parkinson collection and it is gorgeous. Two lipsticks, cream bronze and go compact, a cream blush and powder highlighter complete the make-up collection plus two zip pouches printed with the iconic design.

First off i'm not usually a fan of collaboration designed packaging finding them a bit gimicky. This however is different, the classic images of Jerry Hall are stunning and it looks timeless and elegant, Norman's wife features on one of the compacts and the overall look of the collection is done so so well.

How amazing is this large wash bag, it will hold a ton of products plus has two separators inside. It would also make a fantastic beach bag.

I tested out the Filmstar Cream Bronze and Glow and a lipstick. The cream palette has a slightly different colouring to the original powder version, a bit warmer and will look fantastic on summer skin, anything with a little tan. Easy to contour with or bronze all over before using the rose gold highlighter for some serious light reflecting action. It isn't a full on shimmer, the particles within both the bronze and highlight are very fine.

The second product I tried was the 1975 red lipstick. Looking very bright in the tube, it has a warm orange tint to it and depending on your application can look much less bold when applied. I brushed the lipstick on lightly and achieved a very wearable natural everyday red. You can slick this on straight from the bullet for a bright punchy red.

Miss Kensington is a nude not too dissimilar to Tom Ford Spanish pink, maybe slightly less pink. Very wearable for everyday.

The collection is out on the 4th July in the UK and is bound to be a sell out. You can pre-order any of the products above by contact the Selfridges personal beauty shopper: or call 0121 6006669.
