Charlotte Tilbury is one of my favorite makeup artists - I have been obsessed with her work ever since I first started to dabble in makeup 6-7 years ago - I spied her work in Vogue & my facination with her work began. I fell more in love with her when I saw her in action on a model whilst appearing alongside another one of my fave makeup artists, Lisa Eldridge on her YouTube Channel. Ever since then I had been waiting to get my hands on her makeup line.
Yes I know, I clearly got over excited when it came to purchasing products from Charlotte Tilbury's Luxury Makeup line but as I'm sure you've heard me say before - Her makeup line is the "Epitome of Luxury!" In the 20+ years shes been in the business, every well known stunner has been made over by the truly talented Charlotte Tilbury! I'm sure you've seen her work without knowing she was the makeup artist behind it all
As you can see, I clearly got over excited when it came to purchasing products from Charlotte Tilbury's Luxury Makeup line but as I'm sure you've heard me say before - Her makeup line is the "Epitome of Luxury!" This haul was brought in 2 seperate shopping sprees, quite a long while ago; but I've only recently got around to writing up my thoughts on her products...
So firstly I'll start off with my most used product that I've kept in my personal makeup bag simply because I love it soo much! And that is the... Colour Chameleon | Champagne Diamonds - Colour Morphing Eyeshadow Pencil for Blue Eyes.
What the Charlotte Tilbury website says -
"Cheat your way to intense, bedazzling eye colour in the stroke of a pencil! Bring out your eyes’ natural gemstone sparkle with my COLOUR CHAMELEON eyeshadow pencils, infused with synthetic sapphire. Enhance your natural eye colour with clever lighting tricks I’ve learnt over 20 years in the industry: using the laws of contrasting colours and light flex technology you can literally transform and enhance your natural eye colour.
- Infused with Synthetic Sapphire, a mineral gemstone with natural soft-focus powers, for a smooth, perfect finish.
- A long-lasting, easy-glide formula that smoothes on and stays in place for up to 10 hours, or until it’s time to take it off!"
I love how it glides on & I find it so easy to blend out both with fingers or with a synthetic brush. The formula definitely is very long lasting & I didn't find it to crease it at all.
You could definitely use it as a base but I love using it on its own especially in the inner tear duct - It really draws light into that area & takes just a few seconds!
They're also very well named - "Colour Chameleon" - The champagne shade looks like 2 / 3 different shades on the lid to give that gorgeous 3D effect but does not look glittery. It's very subtle but effective.
I will definitely be picking up some more shades - I'm itching to get Amber Haze, Amethyst Aphrodesiac & then the rest too!
The Feline Flick - PANTHER Quick Fine Line Shodō Pen
What the website says -
"THE FELINE FLICK has a fine-tipped calligraphy-style brush that’s so easy and effortless to use, you can achieve the perfect Feline eye in the flick of a whisker!
- A glossy, intense, ink-rich pen that glides on and sets quickly to prevent feathering and smudging. No re-trace necessary to create an intense result.
- The fine-tipped calligraphy brush applicator and the ergonomic rubber handle give you ultimate control for a precise line. The tip of the Shodõ Pen has been specially crafted to create the perfect angled flick.
- Glides on smoothly without catching on your skin for a straight, even line.
- Stays put for 14 hours."
The tip is nice & thin but I do use it side ways sometimes for a thicker line. Usually I don't keep liquid liners in my kit as I find them impossible to sanitise but I like this pen liner as I am able to wipe it clean with alcoholic wipes. The formula is very black & I haven't had any problems with the felt nib drying on me or changing shape as felt nibs can sometimes do.
I also love the fact that it does stay put once dry & does not transfer on the upper eye lids, so if you do have hooded eyes or have trouble with gel liner - I would recommend this! The great thing is that for personal use, you don't have to use an alcoholic wipe after each use so it will not dry out on you after a while which I am dreading will happen since I use this so much!
I actually picked up 2 of these but I gave one away to a client since she was amazed at how easy it was to apply eyeliner on her lids with it. She has hooded eyes & the eyeliner pen really impressed her.
FULL FAT LASHES MASCARA
A super luxe, XXL, multi-tasking mascara that creates the perfect “Full Fat Lash” to keep every girl satisfied... Some things in life just look better Full Fat – this includes your lashes!
- CURL: the 5-grooved brush deposits the optimal line of mascara along the lash line, pushing your lashes up and out.
- SEPARATION: the fine-tipped bristles catch every lash, no matter how short or fine, coating them in black brilliance.
- VOLUME: the glossy black formula creates full-on, voluptuous, outrageous lashes that don’t drop onto your cheeks.
- LENGTH: the maximum bristle count covers every lash to the very tip, to create the perfect flutter.
- DRAMA: the 5-STAR brush creates a 3-dimensional flutter. Good bye spider lash and hello feather lash – lashes are finely separated, creating that “false lash” multi-layer effect.
If I'm honest, I'm not really one to spend an enourmous amount on mascaras especially since there are so many amazing mascaras that you can pick up from Boots or Superdrug for a third of the price. I always throw my mascaras away as soon as they change in formula & start to dry out - usually around the 2-3 month mark. When I do shoots I throw away mascara every few weeks simply because I use disposeable mascara wands and so the mascara dries out even quicker or I give the mascara away to whoever I directly use it on so it really makes sense for me to not only choose good quality mascaras but affordable ones.
When I picked this up I had high hopes for this since Charlotte always has the most amazing cat liner flick and voluminous lash combo going on which I personally do on myself a lot.
I decided to try out the mascara only on myself since it allowed me to use the brush several times and I didn't have to worry about double dipping. Although I enjoyed the mascara there wasn't anything amazing about it nor did it really make me want to spend more money on another. It actually reminded me of the Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara which came out quite a long while ago. The brush wand is practically identical which doesn't surprise me.
I loved how voluminous the mascara made my lashes look - really Dramatic! But I didn't find them to be particularly curled or even seperated & found it to get clumpy looking very quickly, so considering the hype I was really disappointed. I think that for smaller eyes the brush will really be a problem and may cause clumping if you over apply too much.
Anyways this was Part 1 of my Charlotte Tlbury Haul - The next part will be posted next week & I will review her Eye Shadow Palettes, Lip & Cheek products.
I hope you liked this post - let me know if theres anything more you would like to know in the comments below!
As always, Take care!
