I recently took a little trip to the Charlotte Tilsbury counter in Selfridge's. I took an instant like to the stand containing all the eye products and the colour chameleon eyeshadow pencils looked very interesting. The stand had great organisation and it splits the products into eye colours as Charlotte has created specific shades to suit each eye colour - what a perfect idea! She has also created a day and night look for each colour of eye, so everyone has two options. So naturally I started to look at the blue eyes part of the stand and the colour Champagne Diamonds instantly caught my attention, it was the daytime colour. There was some other great shades for all the different eye colours on the stand, and I would definitely venture out and would not just necessarily choose the colour which it is tailored for. The formula was smooth and incredibly pigmented with one swipe. The lovely makeup assistant told me that they are quick drying so once applied to work fast and quickly blend it to your preferred look. The formula is quite thick, meaning it does stay where it is suppose to, on the eyes this adds a real pop of colour and looks really lovely with a thin line of eyeliner along the top lash line. It has a shimmer running through it, which is a personal preference as I prefer something more shimmery for daytime than matte. This does not come cheap at £19 but I think it is a definite investment for your makeup stash, it will also last a while as you do not need much to create the acquired wash of colour across the eye. I have already added one of the night time shades - Bronzed Garnet to my never ending makeup wishlist.
