Charlotte Tilbury: Lash Perfection?
Stumbling into Harvey Nichols, Leeds one afternoon, I was excited to see the new Charlotte Tilbury counter which had recently graced our city. Having made a bit of a habit of picking up something from her Selfridges counter every time I visited London due to the amazing product quality, I was more than ready to have the chance to purchase her line closer to home.
I originally had my eye on the Colour Chameleon eye pencils, but as the assistant showed me this on the eye, she just needed to finish it off with some of their Full Fat Lashes mascara.... Man did I get a shock! I'm fortunate enough to have naturally long lashes but this just means that when I find a really good mascara, my lashes are just supersized. That's exactly what happened here, even passers by were commenting – they were touching my eyebrows!
As a die-hard fan of the Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara, it's been a long time since I've even contemplated a different option but I was just so impressed that I had to give this a go. The mascara itself is a nice formula – not too wet so that it gets everywhere taking ages to build, and thick enough to get plenty of volume without making lashes clumpy. The brush is nothing groundbreaking but then I don't think it needs to be – I think this crazy, shaped wand craze is pretty much a fad, right?
The one teeny negative about this product? For some reason I find that after an hour or so, I get prints of mascara below my eyes if I'm not careful which, I can't deny, is frustrating. Is it because my bottom lashes are too big now?! Who knows... but if they ever managed to fix it, well ladies – I think we'd have found true lash perfection.
You can purchase it here for £22.
