New in: Charlotte Tilbury

It´s no secret that I am a big fan of Charlotte Tilbury. Some of her products have become complete staples in my makeup bag, but I do have to admit that I am not a fan of her entire line. I do think CT products are very hit and miss, and as the brand isn’t the cheapest on the market you really do need to choose well when buying.

The brand has had a few new launches recently and I decided to try them out.

Firstly, I had to get my hands on her new Instant eye palette. Yep, I was one of those that patiently waited for the pre-sale.
If there is one thing I love about CT is her eye shadows, I just think she nails it with the formula and this palette in no exception. The shadows are absolutely amazing, they have the right amount of pigment, they blend easily and there is no fallout. Some high-end shadows seem too powdery but these are just absolutely amazing. The palette itself is beautiful with similar packaging to her Filmstar bronze and glow.
The colour selection is also amazing, the concept behind the palette is really smart, there are 12 eye shadows grouped into 4 looks, Day, Desk, Date and Disco, making it the perfect palette for every occasion. Its perfect for that kind of girl that isn’t crazy into makeup but does want to have a one fits all palette.

 I tried the new CT Hollywood lips just by chance, I am not a big fan of her lipsticks except for her infamous lipstick in pillow talk. Liquid lipsticks definitely had its moment in 2016, now it seems that many high end brands are coming out with their own versions. The Hollywood lips are matte as you would expect from a liquid lipstick but don’t completely dry, therefore they aren’t as drying and flaky on your lips. They are more comfortable to wear but don’t last as long on the lips either. I do really like the formula but I don’t think I would repurchase as there are many high street brands that make really similar liquid lipsticks. What does stand out from the product is the applicator as its amazing for very precise applications, no need for lip liners! My shade is Too Bad I´m Bad which is a rosy pink.

After swatching the new Hollywood Light Wand in store I decided that I needed this product in my life, specially as I was about to go on holiday and I could see myself as the ultimate golden goddess on those warm nights out (yes, I do have a vivid imagination) The product itself is amazing, you can go as intense or as soft as you want as it blends like a dream. The innovative part of this product again is the packaging as it is dispensed through a sponge applicator very similar to the Maybelline age rewind concealer. I do love this product but I do have to say that the tube isn’t packed full of product which was disappointing.

The Hollywood Contour Wand is the perfect product for anyone that isn’t very good or doesn’t want to spend much time on contouring as it blends really easily and the sponge tip lets you dispense the product very precisely. As with the instant eye palette this contour stick is perfect for busy girls that don’t have time to spend on makeup but at the same time want to have their options open for a put together look. This product come is two shades and I have light to medium.
