There’s a certain eye shadow that I use so often I thought it was about time that I reviewed it! My little collection started with one to try and I now have 4 of these little pots of magic (and a back up of my favourite!) 🙂
I’m of course talking about the Eyes to Mesmerise Eyeshadows by Charlotte Tilbury.
These eyeshadows are as described by Charlotte Tilbury as ‘Foolproof’ … they are so easy to apply either using a finger to swipe it over the lid or using a brush. Personally I use a brush to apply it to my lid then buff into my crease … having hooded eyes I also buff it slightly above my crease. I also use this technique when applying them to my clients.
Many cream eyeshdows are very dry even before application and when on the lid cake up and crease which is why I have avoided that type of formulation for a long time. These are a game changer in my opinion and aswell as using them on my clients, I also recommend them to clients who come to me for a 1-2-1 tutorial on how to apply nice makeup but when you only have 5 minutes to spare! Super creamy formulation, not drying on the lid, don’t cake up and once dry, they last but being so creamy gives you a good amount of time to work them onto the lid however you want to. They also blend beautifully and work well together too.
My most used shade is Marie Antoinette as it’s a perfect daytime shadow that makes it look like you’ve spent much longer on the eyeshadow than you actually have! Whilst these can all be used on their own, they also work well together so on occasion I’ve used Jean as an inner corner highlight or Mona Lisa on just the outer corner.
I highly recommend trying one of these shadows … just don’t blame me if you become hooked! Haha!
