It’s December 1st, so you know what that means… Time to crack open the advent calendar. This year I decided to do something a little bit different. Instead of your typical chocolate advent, I decided to splurge with the Charlotte Tilbury World of Legendary Parties Advent.
I don’t actually own a lot of Charlotte Tilbury products, but the ones that I do have, I absolutely love. So while this advent has a pretty hefty price tag, I thought this would be a great way to introduce myself to the brand.
First, lets talk about the packaging. The advent comes in a beautiful pink box with 12 individual drawers featuring different CT favourites. Although I plan on opening up one drawer each day, I already had to have a peak and test out some of the products.
There’s no surprise with this advent. Each drawer is labeled with what it includes:
Mini Magic Cream®
Mini Multi Miracle Glow
Mini Goddess Skin Clay Mask
Mini Take It All Off Eye Makeup Remover
Mini Supermodel Body
Full Size Eyes to Mesmerise: Marie Antoinette
Full Size K.I.S.S.I.N.G.® Lipstick: Penelope Pink
Full Size Colour Chameleon: Black Diamonds
Full Size EXCLUSIVE Pocket Pout: Jessica Red
Mini Legendary Lashes
Full Size Lip Lustre: Sweet Stiletto
So far I’ve tested out the Goddess Skin Clay Mask, Eyes to Mesmerise, and K.I.S.S.I.N.G. lipstick. The Eyes to Mesermise is a beautiful bronzy-gold shade with a super creamy, whipped texture that lasts all day. At first, I didn’t think I would like the colour of the lipstick (I usually go for pinks), but lately I’ve been loving peachy-nudes, and this tone is absolutely perfect for an everyday lip. And while I’ve only used the Goddess Skin Clay Mask once, I can already tell this is going to be a holy grail product. Not only does it plump and brighten my skin, the smell is absolutely incredible. I’m not sure what it is exactly but it reminds me of my favourite Tom Ford perfume in Jasmin Rouge.
I’m super excited to test out all of the other products in this advent – follow along on my Instagram Stories, where I’ll open each drawer and give you my thoughts.
