For as long as I’ve been writing this blog ive been longing for some Charlotte Tilbury makeup! I’ve constantly added stuff to my online basket, not purchased, had another little think, added some other stuff, not purchased, read endless reviews, not purchased! You get the picture! Ive finally plucked up the courage to hit the pay now button, trust me it took a huge deep breath and I probably had to shit my eyes, because jeez that stuff is expensive!
Who wants to see what I got? You do of course!
I opted for eye products only for the very good reasons that I know I will get most use out of them, and you very rarely go wrong with a good old eyeshadow now do you? I bought the eyeshadow pencil, otherwise known as a Colour Chameleon in Dark Pearl. With the eyeshadow pencils Tilbury suggests colours for you dependant upon eye colour and whether you want a day or evening look. Dark Pearl is a daytime colour for brown eyes. My eyes are actually green, but this pencil is perfect for me! The pencil itself is a chubby stick type crayon, it’s super soft on application, blurrable and blendable. At £19 for a pencil it’s pretty high end, but it’s a lovely colour with a mulitutde of application techniques. I adore this colour and it has left me wanting to buy all of them! There are new colours available now for Christmas as well – eek!
The pallete I bought is to die for! I bought this in Uptown Girl. Tilbury says it’s a ‘beautiful quartet of champagne, oyster and smoky grey hues work together to conjure a wearable, subtle smoky eye with no effort involved.’ I have to say the only downside is the base colour (top left) for priming. It’s incredibly difficult to get any colour onto my brush, I’m not sure whether I got a dud or I’m doing something wrong as the other three colours apply beautifully. All four together are really pretty and do ensure a stunning smokey eye. This pallete is pretty darn expensive though £38 – seriously ouch.
Loves – the eyeshadow pencil / stick is an absolute delight.
Not so Loves – the pallete – not all four colours worked for me and at £38 that’s an expensive mistake to make!
Overall – I will be getting a few more pencils . . . One day!!
