I know that many of you are as excited as I am about the US release of Charlotte Tilburys Magic Foundation and since buying foundation on line is tricky I am hoping that these swatches will help you find your perfect shade match! In these photos I swatched Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation next to the Magic Foundation. I went in numerical order and took all of these un-filtered pictures inside but in natural sun light.
Magic Foundation is now available here and with the free fed ex shipping you can’t go wrong!!
Shade one is a neutral cool and is going to be slightly lighter than MAC’s NW10.
Shade 2 is a neutral cool and is comparable to MAC’s NW10
Shade 3 is neutral and comparable to MAC’s NC15 and Shade 3.5 a neutral warm comparable to MAC’s NC20.
Shade 4 is a neutral warm comparable to MAC’s NC20 and Shade 4.5 is a neutral comparable to MAC’s NC25.
Shade 5 is a neutral cool and comparable to MAC’s NW25.

Sorry I don’t have shades 9 and 9.5. I will work on getting them and updating this post as soon as possible!
Shade 10 is a neutral warm and is comparable to MAC’s NC50. Shade 11 is a neutral warm and comparable to MAC’s NC55. Shade 12 is a neutral cool comparable to MAC’s NW50.
Those swatches are super useful! Thank you so much! ❤️
Thanks for reading!!! xo
Wonderful…wonderful review…thank you for the comparisons that helped tremendously. 🙂
Awesome! Glad it was helpful! Thanks for reading! 🙂
Awesome, thanks!! I got samples for shades 1,2 and 3 as Beautylish thought those would be best for me based on the info I gave them, but sadly 1 and 2 are too light, and 3 is too peachy! I may mix 2 and 3 together to get a semi-decent shade, but otherwise I think 3.5 is my perfect match since I’m quite olive/yellow.
Glad the post helped you find your correct match. As hard as they try it’s still very difficult to foundation match someone over the phone. 🙂
Thank you so much for swatching these for us! I was having the hardest time deciding which shade would suite me best. I am usually MAC N20, so I am going to give the 3.5 a try 😊
Bummer … I was looking specifically for shades 9 and 9.5 swatches.
Sorry they didn’t have them when I was there swatching all of the shades.
