I was lucky enough to be given two out of the five Charlotte Tilbury beach sticks for Christmas and have since fallen in love with them. I mean who doesn't love a multiple use product? These sticks can be used on your cheeks and lips and claim to be your 'bottled holiday glow'. At £30 a pop (or £55 if you get the kit), they're not the cheapest option on the market but I definitely feel that the right colour for you is a worthwhile investment.
The packaging of the beach sticks are equally as sophisticated as the other Charlotte Tilbury products. They come in chic twist up rose gold containers that are compact enough to throw in your handbag when your on the go. I do find them a bit like the Nars packaging in the sense that they always seem to be covered in product, something which is definitely not of great importance!
Ibiza is a universal blend-able bronzer and even works wonders on my casper skin. Moon Beach is a luminous peachy rose gold. I have literally worn this on my cheeks every day since I got it! My pictures don't don't show it well but both colours have fine gold glitter pigment running through them and are extremely buildable colours. I've also got to add that they smell in-cred-ble! Lets just say if your a fan of sweet vanilla smells then this product is certainly for you!
The beach sticks are moisturising enough to ensure that they don't slide off the cheeks but also sit comfortably on the lips without drying. Once applied, I've found that these colours have a slight staining affect which makes them quite long lasting. I find I can get a full work days wear out of these before needing to reapply.
The Charlotte Tilbury website suggests that you apply Ibiza to all the places that would naturally hit the sun, so as you can see from the picture below thats the temples, chin, sides of your nose and of course below your cheek bone. To get a pop of dewy colour, you apply moon beach to the apples of your cheek and, if you want to, your lips (I skipped the lip on this occasion). Now unless you want to walk around like your wearing some kind of war paint, use the heat of your fingers to blend the colours into your skin.
