I have a mini makeup haul for you beautiful people today!
Like many girls I absolutely love Charlotte Tilbury’s makeup range, her products and packaging are gorgeous however her products are quite pricey so I decided to treat myself after a very stressful term at Sixth Form of coursework, mocks and revision.
I decided to take the plunge and purchase 4 makeup products and a new liner sharpener as I was in desperate need of a new one which was good quality after having lots snap and break which sucks!
The first two products I bought were the Colour Chameleon Shadow Pencil’s. I got the two for brown eyes in Dark Pearl (top left swatch) and Amber Haze (top middle swatch). The Dark Pearl colour is for day and Amber Haze for night. Now although I have dark brown eyes I find both of these colours super dark if I just apply them all over my lid straight from the pencil for the day time so what I’ve found works really well for a softer look is applying the colour to the centre of your lid and blending it out with a big fluffy shadow brush. The colours are beautiful and super pigmented, so for me all over straight from the pencil is perfect for creating a dramatic evening look. The formula is super creamy and unlike some other cream shadow sticks I’ve tried I get absolutely no creasing or smudging especially when I use an eyeshadow primer underneath. I will definitely be purchased some more of these in the lighter colours for a perfect spring/summer day time look.
I already have a Charlotte Tilbury lipstick from the K.I.S.S.I.N.G collection in Bitch Perfect which I love and after seeing the quality I knew I needed to try a gloss as the summer months draw closer! I adore this colour which is Portobello Girl (bottom left swatch) it is just the perfect pinky peach gloss for spring and with glowing skin and soft gold eye it looks perfect! I was not disappointed with the quality of the gloss, it is one of the best pigmented glosses I’ve used, it’s not sticky and it actually lasts instead of coming off in 10 minutes like lots of other lip glosses! I will definitely be buying more!
My final product was the Film Star on the Go palette in Rebel without a Cause. Now I was so excited to use this palette but was left a little disappointed and for £42 that was not good. The packaging is stunning and the pink lip and cheek colour (bottom right swatch) is beautiful, its really pigmented and blendable. When I put it on my lips it is also really moisturising. The thing I was disappointed with was the gold shadow, when I swatched it I loved the formula it was really creamy but felt like it would go from cream to powder. However the pigmentation is rubbish for a gold shadow especially when you compare it to amber haze and Urban Decay’s Half Baked. Not only was the pigmentation not great it was super difficult to apply with a brush as I got no coverage, the same with my finger it just moved about and when I eventually got it on it creased in a few hours so I was not impressed especially as the quality and pigmentation of all the other products are bought was amazing!
But I would 100% recommend any of the other products I purchased!
And remember dolls don’t let anyone dull your sparkle!
