Have you been dying to try the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Primer, but the price put you off? Well, the Beauty Pie WonderFilter Brightening Primer is a pretty brilliant dupe, and if you’re a member of Beauty Pie, it’ll only set you back £9.25, whereas the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Primer is £39.
“From South Korea. Our Wonderfilter™ Brightening Primer boasts cutting-edge Pseudo-Skin Canvas Technology, hollow Prism Pearls for an ‘inner glow’ effect, and hydrating Ficucell Vita for the ultimate hybrid primer skincare-makeup mashup. Lightweight. Translucent. Imperfection blurring. This amazing colour-correcting primer gives a gorgeous naturally-radiant glow, plus long-lasting complexion brightening benefits.“
The Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Primer is £39 for 40ml, so you do get more product in the Charlotte Tilbury version, but if you’re a member, the price is obviously a lot better.
If you’ve never tried Beauty Pie before, you can read all about how Beauty Pie works, but it’s essentially a beauty membership service, which allows you to purchase products at a discount.
The Beauty Pie WonderFilter Brightening Primer is a pale pink colour when squeezed from the tube, whereas the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Primer is a golden colour from the tube, so visually they look different straight from the packaging, but on the skin, the effect is identical.
It looks very shimmery when you first squeeze it out, but when blended, it doesn’t look shimmery at all. It gives a glass-like glow, which is pretty intense, but if you like a noticeable glow, you’ll love this primer. If you have oily skin, this primer might be one to skip, as it is so intense.
It even doubles up as a liquid illuminator, when sparingly applied over the top of your foundation. I really like how dewy and radiant it leaves the skin, and the effects are identical to the Wonder Glow Primer.
I can’t say it improves the longevity of my makeup, but it makes my base makeup look good, which is exactly what I want from a primer, as you can always use a makeup setting spray spritzed over the top, to get your makeup lasting all day.
