What: Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Eyeshadow in Golden Quartz and Black Diamonds
Where: Charlotte Tilbury online here or Selfridges
How much: £19.00
I bought these (along with a lipstick and lipgloss of course) back in December last year when we did our annual Christmas Shop. I was looking for an intense gold eyeshadow for Christmas mass as I had seen Christina Aguilera use a similar one on the auditions of The Voice USA. I am a sucker for all things sparkly and shiny so these fit right into my makeup drawer(s)
I bought two colours; Golden Quartz and Black Diamonds. This easy to use eyeshadow is intensely creamy and comes in a easy to use stick – no more faffing around with eyeshadow powders that annoyingly leave speckled bits of eyeshadow on your perfect foundation-ed face (perhaps its just me that forgets to put a tissue under my eye when applying eyeshadow to catch the loose bits?!)
Charlotte Tilbury kindly tells you which of her eyeshadow colours to pick to match your eyes – but me being me, took no notice and picked out the ones for blue eyes and hazel eyes – I have brown eyes but I really loved these colours so bought them anyway Its 10-hour long-wearing and waterproof – I used them overnight and this morning there were still on – fresh as a daisy. I also splashed some water on my eyes to try out the waterproof-ness of it and yes – it still stayed on – so tick for intense colour, tick for waterproof colour and a big tick for longevity.
There are 8 colours to choose from so not the widest range ever, but I’m certain you would find a colour you like, no matter what your eye -colour. I also love that its a pencil applicator – so much easier to apply when you are on the go – every tried to apply powder eyeshadow on the train? Its a freakin’ disaster! *laughs at self knowing how many times i’ve attempted it and looked ridiculous after* Another thing worth mentioning is that its easy to remove too – I used a tiny bit of cream cleanser and it wiped straight off – impressive seeing as how it had such staying power. Oh, and it didn’t leave behind glittery residue which I find in some glittery eyeshadows do. *annoying grin ON*:)
Check out the eyeshadow pictures below, doesn’t it look shiny and glittery! The eyeshadow is synthetically infused with sapphire to give it that extra glittery-oopmh and provides a smooth, soft-focus finish.
I would recommend these if your looking for intense long-wearing colour that’s waterproof – they’re really a great find! I can’t wait to try their lipstick and lipgloss now!! Wa-hooooo!!
Toodles for now!
