A Few From Charlotte Tilbury

So for Christmas I got the amazing new Charlotte Tilbury Advent calender which I was so thrilled by. With that came with some lovely miniature products for me to try out before going ahead and puchasing the full size. Overall, I have been amazed by the quality of the products I've tested and the generous sized products definitley was worth the price of the advent calender. I will be sharing my reviews on all the products over the next couple weeks too so stay tuned for that.

[ Lip Magic ]
When I first heard that Charlotte Tilbury is releasing a lipstick, I instantly got really excited as anybody who knew me would know that I am a lipbalm fiend. However, packaged within a tiny pot was a product that I thought all in all was a thumbsdown for me. Not only was it not very hydrating, but it left a fine layer of the product on my lips which didn't really do much. I also dislike the design within the pot as I always feel that its unhygeinic to dip fingers in the pot each time to apply onto my lips. For the price of this, I do not think its worth it as I think that there are other brands out there that does a better job at moisturising.

This eyeshadow feels amazing and swatches so well. This colour is described as an 'antique, pearl-flecked aubergine which compliments green eyes especially. The colour is very buildable and a few layers of this gave a multidimensional look to the eyes. It delivered a nice subtle shimmer that doesn't look over the top but catches the light nicely as you can see in the pictures. I do find that it is a little bit difficult to blend out compared to other eyeshadows I have but when used with a primer, it does make it a little easier. As a single eyeshadow, it is really good and has a really finely milled texture. However, I did find that it creased on my eyelids due to my long work hours and natural prone oily eyelids. Great product by Charlotte Tilbury but I feel that there are other better eyeshadows out there for the price. 

[ ROCK ‘N’ KOHL eyeliner in Supernova ]
This smokey plum shade eyeliner was beautiful in stores and when I swatched this in store I really adored the buttery texture of it and how long it lasted on the back of my hand. This mini I got from the advent calender did not dissapoint me at all as the colour was highly pigmented and the shimmer was perfect. It didn't smudge on me despite the tendency of my eyes to become watery throughout the day therefore I was more than impressed. A high quality long-lasting eyeliner which I would highly recommend and the colour range that do is great too. Only downside to this is that I am a contact lens wearer and sometimes the tiny specs of shimmer does tend to stick to my lens.

  2. That eye look looks amazing on you! I almost picked up the lipbalm but decided against it at the last minute and I'm glad I did now. I agree with you I hate lip balms in a pot, my longtime favourite is still the Chanel coco baume, it comes in a bullet, sooooo much nicer.
