Last month, despite trying to save money to pay for Christmas presents, I was rather naughty. I treated myself to my first piece of Charlotte Tilbury makeup. Between seeing a some of my favourite bloggers rave about their products and a store opening in one of my favourite weekend haunts, Covent Garden, it was only a matter of time before I caved in to the hype.
