Oh my! The Charlotte Tilbury Norman Parkinson collection of gorgeousness.

You lucky UK residents, and US residents too! This July/August you'll be getting your hands on the stunning Charlotte Tilbury Norman Parkinson Collection. And we in the Great White North will look on with envy, and with hope that the entire Charlotte Tilbury line will eventually be available in Canada. (Okay,we'll take an edited collection if we must, but these, please!)

Charlotte Tilbury Norman Parkinson Filmstar Bronze & Glow compact, featuring Jerry Hall for the May 1975 cover of Vogue. On the Dreamy Glow Highlighter compact is the glorious – can we call her a legend? – Carmen Dell'Orefice in 1959. She's 83 now.

Norman Parkinson was a legendary fashion photographer whose incredible career spanned decades, from the 1930s to 1990 (he died on the job, while shooting for Town and Country magazine). As well as celebrities, he worked with royalty, as in the British monarchy, as well as magazine -- Diana Vreeland and Grace Coddington, for instance. His images of Jerry Hall, Carmen Dell'Orefice and Wenda Parkinson (she married Norman in 1947) are featured on the Charlotte Tilbury Norman Parkinson collection's three compacts and makeup case. Pop over to British Beauty Blogger for the details.

All this Charlotte Tilbury Norman Parkinson loveliness will be available via in July and Selfridges (and probably US retailers such as Nordstrom and Beautylish) in August. Best part? Yeah, I've said it already: you can use the makeup without spoiling the beautiful compacts.

Who else is having a serious case of the WANTS over this stuff?? Hey, did you know delivers to Canada?
