Now Christmas is all about the sparkle and glitter right. Christmas parties and nights out are usually accompanied with a sparkly dress, shimmering top or glittering boots and we have the make up to match. This year I have found the perfect make up tool for the very best festive eyes, whatever your eye colour and whatever your skin tone.
Introducing the latest addition to my ever expanding make-up collection Charlotte Tilbury’s Colour Chameleon Champagne Diamonds light shimmer eyeshadow pencil. It is part of a range of 9 different shades. I opted for champagne diamonds as it is perfect for blue eyes. Each shadow specifies what eye colour it is best teamed up with, to bring out your very best look and festive sparkle. Incidentally my auntie also brought one on the same day and opted for the smokey emerald shade as it is best teamed with hazel eyes – the colour looks divine.
The shadow itself is luxurious in appearance and feel. It glides easily across the lid leaving a bright shimmery trail in it’s wake. It is lightweight and hardwearing, lasting all day. Literally. The pigment is really good and creates the perfect festive eyes for the party season. I found it to be perfect for brightening and widening your eyes not to mention adding a pop of colour and sparkle as specified by Charlotte Tilbury herself.
What I love most about this product is, one that it is paraffin free (hurrah, I am big on this these days) and two how it lends itself to blending. It can be teamed with so many different colours and blends beautifully into different shades. It works particularly well with browns, oranges and natural tones. Word of warning the formula sets in about 30 seconds so get blending and blend quickly.
A few top tips to get the best out of this product;
Keep your pencil sharpe to ease application.
Team it with Two Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (or similar) for full bodied thick eyelashes – it really makes the perfect look.
Add a small amount to the the lower lid with a bit a small touch of brown eye eyeliner to really bring out those blue eyes.
Et voila you have some perfect long lasting, glittering, shimmering festive eyes.
This was my first Charlotte Tilbury purchase and I am pretty sure I will be back for more.
