Charlotte Tilbury's House of Rock 'n' Kohl Beauty Bag

Last week saw London's Oxford Street Selfridges pair up with celeb makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury to host 'Charlotte Tilbury's Makeup House of Rock 'n' Kohl'. The week-long, beauty-fuelled festival featured intimate evening panels with the lady herself alongside pals Lisa Eldridge and Cara Delevingne to name but a few...

'Tilbury Transformations' were being mustered up by members of the team, a Quick-Flick Eye Bar offered complimentary makeovers for all, top nail technicians were doodling on mani designs and the Psychic Sisters were giving lipstick readings. As if that wasn't enough to tingle our beauty taste buds, Charlotte unveiled a Kate Moss portrait in the iconic corner window display and famous pout prints adorned the walls at the Kissing Gallery.

I could have easily dropped all duties to pop along but had to miss out big time, though a taster of what's to come from her cosmetic collection hitting the store exclusively in September caught my beady eye. As a limited edition Selfridges special, the sought after makeup artist and her A-list mates, Kate Moss, Stella McCartney, Sienna Miller, Carine Roitfeld and Alice Temperly, got together to design a makeup bag for the Kids Company in London which supports 18,000 vulnerable children by providing a reliable family environment, and so all profits from these sales go to the charity - £15 donated and a brand-spanking new makeup bag for me? I'm happy with that. I waved off my past battered pouch and welcomed this canvas number with open arms, one side a quirky quote: ''Every woman deserves a man to ruin her lipstick, not her mascara'' signed C.T - amazing - the other printed with previously mentioned pink pouts from the gals. 

The moment it fell through my front door I was filling it with my makeup must-haves, as above, but some of Charlotte's faves feature Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, MAC Bronzing Powder, Estee Lauder's Extreme Lash Mascara, Tom Ford Lip Colour in Spanish Pink and her very own Magic Cream concoction for the skin which she labels a 'push up bra in a jar' *sniggers* - I can barely contain my excitement to see what she brings to the makeup table with her own line late Summer. Ladies, form an orderly queue...

The Charlotte Tilbury Kissing makeup bag can be purchased for £15.00 here.


  1. Love the kisses.. great £15 spent! xx

  2. I absolutely love the design and the cause! Too bad I can't get it in Canada.


    1. It's fab isn't it?! I believe Selfridges.com do international delivers by phone if it's any help ;-) x

  3. OMG, I don’t just want this. I need this. What an amazing statement for us beauty nerds. Love!
