Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Concealer | Review

Purchased (Affiliate Links)

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Concealer is magic, as the name suggests. They were continually sold out of my desired shade, Fair 2, which is the perfect light shade with pink undertones, but when it was back in stock I quickly purchased it.

The formula is lightweight, non-creasing and it adds just a touch of luminescence to optically blur imperfections, dark circles or blemishes without being glittery. It has a nice large spongy applicator tip, and a twist dispenser, but you want to be sure not to over twist otherwise you will waste a lot of product. I apply it right after my eye cream has absorbed, and only need a little to brighten under my eye area. On those days when I get little sleep, and awaken to unsightly dark circles, this concealer does an enviable job concealing them and in giving my eyes a radiant glow. It neither settles into fine lines, nor does it become cakey. Furthermore, it does not dry out the delicate skin under my eyes, and it lasts all day on me. It offers buildable coverage, if you desire added opacity to conceal blemishes or imperfections, and it blends out perfectly.
According to Charlotte Tilbury,

This is the magic wand of makeup for perfect-looking skin! Magic Away Concealer in 2 Fair is an incredible full coverage liquid concealer in a pink porcelain shade for fair skin with cool undertones. For five years, Charlotte Tilbury has been working on this holy grail of concealers that reduces the appearance of dark circles, blemishes and imperfections, for fresher-looking second skin instantly!

• Persian Silk Tree Bark Extract can contribute to the illusion of a lifted upper eyelid, as well as reducing the appearance of crow’s feet wrinkles and fading dark circles.

• Palmitoyal Glycine, also known as the BLISS MOLECULE, helps reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

• Extract of Wild Indigo is a native Indian plant used in ayurvedic tradition that helps to enhance the skin’s luminosity.

• The NEW! Magic Precision Sponge is designed to roll over imperfections, and hug the under-eye contour for the most flawless application of your life!

• Ideal if you want a full coverage liquid concealer to cover dark circles, blemishes and imperfections.
1. Apply your foundation before your concealer to identify areas that need extra coverage.

2. Once you have blended in your foundation, apply Magic Away Concealer to blemishes, redness and areas that need more coverage.

3. For brighter-looking eyes, use a lighter shade to apply to under-eye circles, and tap with your ring finger to blend.

  1. I think this shade would be perfect for me, too! I cannot buy anything for a while because I did too much shopping this holiday season, but next Sephora coupon sale, I'm there!

    1. Yes, I think that this would be the perfect shade for you as well, Allison! This is definitely something to add to your next Sephora VIB Sale list! It's definitely worth it, and I think that you would be quite impressed.

  2. This is the shade I purchased too. I have also put away other concealers other than a test on a new one I bought to review. CT has become a favorite brand. Her foundation lasts on me so much better than anyone else's.

    1. I had a funny feeling that you would have this, and love it! It's such an amazing concealer!

  3. Now that's an endorsement, I'll check into it!

    1. This is one of the best purchases that I made in 2018, and I think that you would love it too. This is Marcia's favorite concealer as well.

  4. I'm wondering with how good you say it covers and if I get one with a pink undertone if it could replace my color corrector-concealer combo I currently use. I use Urban Decay Color Corrector in pink and whatever concealer I grab at the time but those together are more than that $32 price tag of the Charlotte Tilbury. So buying Charlotte Tilbury COULD save me money lol

    1. I find that it does an exemplary job covering up my dark circles, when I have them. If you are seeking a thick and fully opaque corrector, I would say that this may not be what you are looking for. It definitely has buildable coverage, and it does a great job concealing and blurring imperfections, but it doesn't have that thick consistency of a typical color-correcting concealer. It might be worth checking it out in person to see if achieves what the UD Color Corrector does in conjunction with your concealer. I don't have the UD Color Corrector, so I can't give you a more helpful response.
