The Charlotte Tilbury obsession continues … let’s be fair, it’s never going to end. I have been sent one of the Quick ‘N’ Easy Kits to show you all – these are a great idea for if you’re in a rush. You can create a simple, but beautiful look with a small number of products … and no brushes. Imagine, you’ve had a long day at work and the girls suggest a drink. You don’t have time to go home, and for once half the contents of your makeup bag aren’t floating around in your handbag, but you need to switch your makeup up a little. That’s where these kits come into play. They’re not enough for a full face, but they are more than enough to transform your look into something that bit more.
I was sent the Smokey Eye Evening Look £55.00)* and it’s like they know that this is my favourite look to create. I tend to choose a smokey eye more than any other look, and can spend a long time blending different shades of black and grey to get the perfect look. This kit isn’t about that – it’s about creating a quick and simple smokey eye in 5 minutes, so it’s perfect for those impromptu drinks or for when you’ve got sod all time to get ready.
Charlotte describes it as:
“Finger-smudging, multi-tasking makeup in a flash.”
There are 4 of Charlotte’s gorgeous products included in the kit:
COLOUR CHAMELEON IN BLACK DIAMONDS – I bloody love Colour Chameleons and this is one of my favourites. It is a gorgeous black flecked with glitter and contains sapphire extract to make your eyes sparkle. It is so quick and easy to use – all you need to do is shade in the lid and then use your finger to smudge it out and blend it. No brush needed and you’ve got an instant smokey effect.
ROCK N KOHL IN BEDROOM BLACK – No smokey eye is complete without black eye liner and Bedroom Black is more than up to the job. It is so smooth to apply, thanks to addition of crushed pearl powder (fancy I know) that add hydration to the skin meaning the liner glides across instead of dragging. I like to smudge the liner up a little when I’m going full on smokey.
MINI LEGENDARY LASHES – You want some banging lashes to go with that smokey eye and this mascara gives you a stunning false lash effect – great if, like me, you can’t apply those suckers for love nor money. It contains Tamanu Oil which nourishes and sculpts the lashes. It took me a while to love this mascara when it was first launched, but so long as I take my time applying it, it really makes the lashes pop.
K.I.S.S.I.N.G. LIPSTICK IN PENELOPE PINK – With a dark eye look, you want a neutral lippie and Penelope Pink is a beautiful nude pink that won’t be trying to compete with your eye makeup. It is blended with special waxes and light diffusing pigments to give you pert, full-bodied lips.
The products in the kit are ones I have used and loved for months, so I have no hesitation in recommjbeding this kit to you all – it is so good for those of you with busy lives.
Now I could show you what the kit looks like on me but a fractured right elbow is making life more than a little bit difficult at the moment, so instead of me embarrassing myself, I will insert the photo of the model they use on the Charlotte Tilbury site … she’s much prettier than me lol. (Give me her hair!! And her face!!).
The Smokey Eye Evening Look is available from the Charlotte Tilbury website for £55.00.
