This pencil glides on skin like there is no tomorrow. This is my first pencil like that. However, in many of the reviews, it was said that the staying power is very strong but it is 50/50 for me. I have a semi oily-semi dry skin, with of course, shiny T zone by the end of the day. I like to use this to draw a feline flick line and inside my lower lid. Well the feline flick line tends to somehow smudge and after 3 hours the line or a inner lower eyelid is gone. I think I will try out Tom Ford after this and if it will do the same, I will return to CT one. It is still a very nice pencil.
I have also had it in brown color which I, as a dark brows owner would use on my eyebrows-just to slightly swipe and then smudge it. Now this is where it stayed all day long! Surely a puzzle.
Sorry, is she copying Kevin Aucoin? Because I wear KA has exactly the same liquid liner...
I just purchased her mascara which is lovely but expensive and you get 2ml less than most high end mascaras mascara was 22.00 and 30.00 for the blusher in ecstasy gorgeous colour but build able and soft although not as pigmented as I was expecting. I was expecting it to be luscious on par or on the way to Tom ford quality and texture but that's where Charlotte tilbury fails. The packaging is ok and not luxurious in feel or final touches. no detail.The price point belies the product shame it falls short for me. It doesn't even come close to matching the hype. Will stick to nars/Laura mercier and Tom ford.
This is a soft, very black pencil that sets quickly after application - I'd say it's pretty similar in texture and behaviour to my favourite Bobbi Brown Longwear Eye Pencil. Tilbury's signature look is the rock chick cat eye (think Kate Moss) and this is designed to help you recreate that. I have hooded lids, so can't do a lovely feline flick, but the clever makeup artist at the CT counter in Selfridges, London, showed me how to get a similar look, lining three-quarters of the upper lid on the outside and then going inside on the inner quarter, then using the pencil inside the waterline on the lower lid, and taking it out with a very small kick at the end. I do really like this pencil and it's fab for a smudgy, smoky eye, but am not convinced it's better than the BB one. On me, it slides a bit more and doesn't last quite as long on the waterline. But it's a great smoky eye pencil nonetheless - not for you if you want a hard, precise line though.
