We shared the exciting news of Charlotte Tilbury’s brand soon-to-be launch in Hong Kong earlier and on last Wednesday, we were invited to meet her in person and explore the magic of her products at her apartment suite in Landmark Mandarin Oriental. The experience is beyond incredible.
We arrived at Tilbury’s apartment in early afternoon and instantly amazed by the products beautifully laying around, fresh red roses, photo booth and glamourous makeup stations with makeup artists standby, it’s a wonderland indeed.
After strolling around a bit, got makeup touch up, took photos and got engraving on our chosen products (I chose the MULTI-MIRACLE GLOW), the founder of the brand Charlotte Tilbury showed up and chatted with us. Firstly, she told us how she started to find the magic of makeup as a teenager and how she’s inspired to be a makeup artist and why’s she started her own brand. She also complimented Southeast Asian girls for knowing the power of skincare and naturally gorgeous lips.
I was told advanced that there’ll be no interview session but Ms. Tilbury sat down to chatted and took photos with each of us which is even better. I was supposed to be nervous to meet such an iconic beauty guru but she’s the most charming and down-to-earth person that you’ll ever meet. When I thought I couldn’t be more fulfilled with the experience and about to leave, her team handed each of us a goodie bag and told us to take whatever lipsticks we like from the “lipstick wardrobe”. Christmas came early!
Charlotte Tilbury will be launched in Hong Kong at Lane Crawford next year (locations and launch date to be confirmed) and we simply cannot wait! See the full album of the meet and greet here and more information on their official website.
