Out of all the Charlotte Tilbury Christmas launches, the Charlotte Tilbury Easy Smokey Eyes To Hypnotise Duo was one of the products I was most looking forward to trying, alongside the two new pearl eyeshadow quads.
I am a big, big fan of the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Eyeshadow Crayons, and I own I think five different shades, so when I saw this special set with two shades designed to give you the perfect smokey eye, I was instantly sold. Smokey eyes might be a little late 2000’s, but I still love a good smokey eye.
“Darlings, discover the secret to EFFORTLESS EYES TO MESMERISE with my NEW! eye makeup gift set, Easy Smokey Eyes to Hypnotise!
Featuring 2 NEW! shades of my Colour Chameleon eyeshadow pencils, perfectly packaged in a star-print gift box, this is the ultimate eye-enhancing duo for smokey makeup magic on the go!“
The Charlotte Tilbury Easy Smokey Eyes To Hypnotise Duo is £22 / $29, and it offers £38 / $54 worth of value, with two full sized Colour Chameleon Eyeshadow Sticks.
What makes this particular set so special, is that it contains two brand new exclusive shades, which you won’t be able to purchase outside this set, so you don’t have to worry about duplicates if you already own other Colour Chameleon Eyeshadow Sticks.
That’s not to say these shades won’t be launching in the future, as some brands tend to do that, but they’d be perfect to add to their permanent shade range.
The Charlotte Tilbury Easy Smokey Eyes To Hypnotise Duo includes two shades; Black Smoulder, which is described as being a smouldering smokey black eyeshadow pencil to line, define and add smokey definition to any eye look.
Then there’s Cosmic Gold, which is a glimmering gold eyeshadow pencil for eyes that sparkle. Both of these swatches are one single swipe of each pencil, and they’re both opaque and super pigmented. The quality is just as amazing as their permanent shades, and they’re just beautiful.
I like that the black shade works nicely as an eyeliner, an eyeshadow or an eyeshadow base, and it’s very longwearing, which makes it work so nicely as an eyeliner, especially in the waterline.
Whereas the gold is stunning on the lids, and inner corner, and used together, the Charlotte Tilbury Easy Smokey Eyes To Hypnotise Duo allows you to create a whole eye makeup look in under a minute, by swiping all over the lids and blending out with your fingertip or blending brush.
