Hello beauties! I hope you are having a good week! I have another exciting post today – well I am excited anyway 😉 As you can see by the title I have been to Charlotte Tilbury and bought this absolutely gorgeous eyeshadow pencil. My friend bought this when she came to visit and I loved it so much I decided to get myself one! I got the shade Champagne Diamonds and the name couldn’t be any more perfect!
I am going to mention the packaging first because I just love Charlotte Tilbury packaging! I know it may just be a bit of card board but I just love how perfect it looks, the colours make it look so pretty I cant help but keep them – yes I have kept the packaging for some of my CT products ;)! It also has all the info on that you need in super pretty rose gold writing!
Now on to the eyeshadow! I got the shade Champagne Diamonds and it really does look like champagne with the gold base and diamonds with the synthetic sapphire which just adds that perfect sparkle to your eyes! It says on the packaging that this will last up to 10 hours and is waterproof. I haven’t had it on for 10 hours but I can honestly see that being true as once it is on it does not budge! Also when I swatched it on my hand and went to wash them it didn’t come off either so if your stuck in torrential rain with no brolly – don’t panic because you will still have gorgeous sparkly eyes!
Another thing I love about these eyeshadow pencils is that you can use it either on its own or put it over the top of another eyeshadow to make it look a bit more glamorous as you can apply a small amount and then build it up! On the packaging it says that this shade is for blue eyes in the day time then there is also a shade for blue eyes at night. There are two shades for every eye colour one for day and one for night time and as with all of the CT products you can find super helpful videos on the website showing you exactly how to use them and then a day and night time look.
Here is what Charlotte Tilbury 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.
Over all I am so pleased that I bought this and will definitely be going back to buy Black Diamonds which is the night time shade for blue eyes and who knows I may even push the boat out and get some for other eye colours as I love the look of Amethyst Aphrodisiac & Dark Pearl! You can get these eyeshadow pencils for £19.00 which as usual is completely worth is as they last all day, they are waterproof and the actual pencil will last a long, long time as well! They do advise on getting one of the CT pencil sharpeners because other sharpeners have apparently ruined the pencils in the past. I didn’t get one when I bought this but I think next time I am there I am going to as they are only £5.00 and I would rather spend that than spend £19.00 just for it to get ruined!
So I hope you enjoyed this post and didn’t get too bored but you know what I am like, once I get started on Charlotte Tilbury there is no stopping me!
Have you tried any of the CT Eyeshadow Pencils? What are your thoughts?
See you soon!
