Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow Instant Soft-Focus Beauty Flash Primer
4.40 / 5 based on 127 Reviews
Charlotte has created a miracle fix to turn around tired, dull, dehydrated skin in a beauty flash called WONDERGLOW, powered by a breakthrough Fluorescent Core Light Diffuser that cleverly steals UV light from its surroundings and re-emits it as skin luminosity to disguise and transform drab, sleep-deprived skin. WONDERGLOW is a visionary new anti-age hybrid. A cross between an anti-age elixir and a complexion-enhancing light diffuser to give skin an instant "spotlight" effect. Collagen-boosting peptides and patented wrinkle-preventing ingredients are fused with light-reflecting microspheres with a fluorescent core that fill in wrinkles and scatter light to blur away lines and flood skin with luminosity. Create the definition of youthful, healthy skin: glowing, hydrated and effervescent. It can be used underneath my LIGHT WONDER foundation, on its own for a relaxed, effortlessly dewy look or on top of makeup throughout the day to give your skin an instant pick-me-up. -?p- One of Charlotte's seven wonders for your skin! CHARLOTTE SAYS: WONDERGLOW has multiple uses - perfect for an easy glow on the go! 1. For an effortless, "makeup free" dewy look: moisturise your skin with CHARLOTTE'S MAGIC CREAM, then apply WONDERGLOW, with your hands or using a brush, to the entire face focussing on the top of the cheekbones to give your face an instant lift. 2. To enhance your luminosity under makeup: after moisturising, apply a fine layer of WONDERGLOW to your entire face, using your hands or a brush, focussing on your cheekbones. Apply my LIGHT WONDER foundation on top for optimal, luminous coverage. 3. As a desk 'til dusk pick me up, apply a walnut sized amount of WONDERGLOW to your cheekbones and brow bone, on top of day-worn makeup to lift and perk up your complexion.see more...

Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow Instant Soft-Focus Beauty Flash Primer
- "with the wonderglow primer, i feel that you need to use it on top of either the ct dream cream or with quite a heavy duty moisturiser. this is part of my routine anyway so it doesn’t bother me too much. it does make me question whether this could be classified as a primer or just luminosity drops though. i absolutely love the glow this gives underneath my foundation. it would make a really matte foundation still look glowing which is amazing! i really like the texture but the only downside is that you need to ensure your skin is highly moisturised before use as the colour sticks to dry patches in my experience which can make the skin look quite dirty. i do love it and wear it every day but i have learned the hard way with this one." in 12 reviews
I was dying to try this out and I got a sample when I purchased the Hollywood Flawless Filter. I had high hopes for this to use it as primer or foundation instead of my Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, but It has no coverage. I did like it as primer along with the flawless filter and I added a foundation on top and it made my skin look super healthy flawless, not greasy. I would def recommend it as primer if you have dry skin.
When I first put on this foundation I really like how glowy and smooth my skin looked with it on. It didn’t look to heavy. However after 5 or 6 hours it began to get pretty oily and break apart around my nose. I do have oily skin so this may be a good product for you if you have drier skin but for me I wouldn’t repurchase especially due to the price tag.
Wonderful Instant Soft-Focus Flash Primer feels amazing on the skin. If you are looking for a dewy finish and a soft glow like me, this is your best choice. It’s not too shimmery and not too matte. I’m using it as it is in the morning and for the evening look I’m mixing it with a drop of foundation.
I mostly don't like the texture of this primer as it feels grimy to me, and compared to other high-end primers, this just doesn't make my makeup look as good. I will wear it at this point because I have it, but if I want that glowy look, I will apply cushion highlighter over my primer where I want it ( Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer or Estée Lauder The Mattifier Shine Control Perfecting Primer + Finisher - the latter is OKAY) and apply foundation over it.
I really like this primer. it is a bit sparkly but i feel like it gives a nice natural glow when used under your foundation. in my experience it has lasted all day and is the perfect add on to a summer look!
Wonderglow is a lovely glowy primer with a slick slightly diffusing texture. I don't know whether I think it makes foundation last longer, but it definitely helps it go on smoother, so that you can use less and look less cakey. The value isn't the best, but glowy primers haven't really made it to the drugstore yet, so I continue to shop high end for them.
One of my holy grail products!!!! Love, love this!!! Gives my skin a little subtle glow and can be used on no makeup days when I just want my skin to look great! But also works well under foundation as a primer. I recommend this to everyone!!! I love all things CT and honestly this is one of my favorites. A definite must have in my makeup bag!!
This light deflecting primer makes my tired & dull skin appear youthful & healthy. It creates a flawless canvas to apply foundation over, while the good for your skin ingredients are at work. Makeup applies so well over top of this primer & it takes a small amount to cover my entire face. It's really a magic product that is worth every penny spent.
For the price, I wasn’t overly impressed with this. I prefer a dewy, radiant finish to my makeup but at the end of the day I felt pretty greasy, had a couple of small whiteheads on my forehead, and didn’t really think it kept my makeup in place all that well. Becca makes a cheaper radiant primer that works better for me.
I am wearing all Charlotte Tilbury. The Wonder Glow literally is a soft focus filter. The makeup feels light and gives you a natural inner glow. I am also wearing Wonder Glow Foundation and I prepped with magic cream.
Q & A
What is the coverage like? Would it cover rosacea ?
Does anyone know, is this "illuminating" as in actually like a highlighting glow for under makeup (like a lit-from-within look) or is this a dew-y primer? Also does this look oily after a while? I have the magic foundation and I really love it, so I'm looking for a primer that may compliment it well. I just don't want it to be very dense and oily feeling.
What is the best primer? My current is Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow Instant Soft-Focus Beauty Flash Primer I like it because it’s got a shimmer
Does anyone know how or if this will mix with foundation? I'm always in a hurry so it would be nice if it did.
I have the Laura mercier radiance primer, does anyone know if these two are comparable and would it be worth it to try this one? I love Charlotte tilburry but i can't decide if I really need it or should just stick to the product I have.
