Hello beautiful people.
This blog post is all about the amazing new mascara by Charlotte Tilbury. This is her second mascara from her amazing beauty line, and I think this is officially my number 1 mascara of all time.
I first discovered Charlotte Tilbury through Cara Delevingne’s IG. She had taken a picture of the CT brow tool, based on her eyebrows. I spent about an hour stalking Charlotte and fell in love. I couldnt believe how much of an amazing make up artist she was and how many Vogue covers she had done make-up for. She is also best friends with Kate Moss, which just makes her even more fab.
This mascara is based on Hollywood Red Carpet Glam, allowing everyone who buys this mascara to have mesmerising eyes and look like a superstar. I love the gold tube design with legendary lashes on one side and a pair of eyes winking with beautiful lashes on the other. You also get every product in a deep maroon and rose gold packaging which is just everything. With my purchase I also got a free sample of the night cream and eye cream, i am yet to try these but will provide an update when I do!
Application is really easy. Simply curl your lashes before with a decent set of eyelash curlers, not primark ones that rip your lashes out, (I use MAC). Then I apply one coat of mascara let it set, then apply a second. If the wand catches your skin and leaves a bit behind leave it to dry and use a bit of lip balm to wipe away by running it over the mascara. TIP – I always have a cheap wilko’s 40p lip balm stick in my make up bag exactly for this.
This mascara is jet black making your lashes look very full and glamorous. The mascara is very thick when you first take a look, however the formula is light on the eyes and doesn’t weigh your lashes down. You can apply as many coats as your wish and then off you go spending your day as a supermodel. The wand has been designed to pick up each individual lash so it creates a ‘false lash’ effect. CT describes that you can create 3 lash effects from using this mascara – the Wing, Doll, and False lash effect is demonstrated through a video tutorial on her website.
The online video tutorials is one of the reasons I love Charlotte Tilbury. Every product on her website has a ‘how to’ application video which she is the make-up artist for. She describes every stage of how to apply her eye -quads, to her foundation. I think that this an amazing touch and better than a lot of youtube tutorials, after all the lady who paints Kate Moss and Kim Kardashians face for a living is obviously speaking the truth and giving out the best advice.
This mascara is also nourishing for the lashes, not drying which is what we all want when we apply mascara every day. If you do wear mascara every day I would recommend spending more on eye products as your eyes are very delicate and need to be looked after. I would also invest in a decent eye make up remover (like this Clarins one) as this stuff will not budge if you don’t have a good one!
This mascara is high end with a price tag to match. HOWEVER I guarantee that the £25 that leaves your bank will be more than worth it. This mascara can give you three different looks, lasts forever, nourishes your eyelashes and can make you look 1 million £ in about 30 seconds. I have already recommended it to as many people that will listen and now I’m passing this message onto you! I hope you treat yourself to it. Its a great starting product if you have never had Charlotte Tilbury before and its a great product to add to your ever expanding collection like mine!
