Fans of Charlotte Tilbury and her 'Magic Cream' will be delighted to know that her latest launch—which, by the way, has already garnered an 8,000-person waitlist—is a lightweight serum that delivers her signature soft glow.

Magic Serum Crystal Elixir is the first serum in the line and features the same 'Magic 8' complex that's in her cult-favorite cream, as well as, replexium (a fast-acting peptide that addresses wrinkles), polyglutamic acid (which has been touted as hyaluronic acid 2.0), vitamin C and crystals like moonstone, rose quartz and amethyst.

The crystals, if you're into that sort of thing, are said to bring positive energy and healing to your skin. And if you're a bit, uh, skeptical about those claims, you will be happy to know that it also features niacinamide, which is scientifically proven to reduce inflammation, brighten and clear up skin with long-term use.

Which brings us to our next point: As with any new skincare product, you want to give it time (at least eight to 12 weeks) to really assess how it's working for you, so bear that in mind as you test out new things.

Luckily for those of us who are impatient and crave more immediate satisfaction (that's most of us, right?), the milky texture of this serum is de-light-ful. Massage a few drops onto freshly washed skin and it will drink it right up. There's no sticky residue, greasy shine or heavy feeling whatsoever and the scent itself is lightly herbal and spa-like. As Charlotte would say, "it's simply marvelous, darlings."
