Charlotte Tilbury is hands-down my favourite makeup brand right now. I’ve just never come across a product I didn’t love. Sure, it’s not the most affordable makeup in the market, but it’s definitely worth the price in my opinion. And Charlotte Tilbury’s latest releases are no different.
First lets start with the Legendary Lashes Volume 2. If you’ve reading my blog for a while now, you probably know about my love for the original Legendary Lashes (which is sadly now discontinued). Volume 2 is meant to be it’s bigger, better replacement. The main complaint about the original Legendary Lashes was that it was prone to smudging. I never had that big of a problem with smudging, in fact, I was willing to put up with any smudges because I loved the formula that much.
While the packaging and wand seem to have remained the same, Volume 2 is definitely a different formula. Where the original gave soft, fluttery lashes, this new formula creates a stiffer more voluminous look. The mascara is still absolutely beautiful, but It’s more natural than say the Lancome Monsieur Big. Overall I still love it – it’s a great everyday mascara. But now that the original has been replaced, I’m not sure I’ll be purchasing this one again. If you didn’t like the other formula, definitely give this one a try – I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
The next new item I picked up was the Collagen Lip Bath – Charlotte Tilbury’s answer to a lip plumper. The collagen enhanced plumper uses mustard sprout extract to hydrate, plump, and enhance lip volume, with a blend of coconut oil and peppermint extract nourish, soften, and create a cool, fresh feeling directly after you apply.
The Lip Bath is an almost transparent, milky-pink gloss that leaves a beautiful sheen to the lips. But it’s not too gloppy or glossy – it actually feels more like a lip treatment. I actually love using this in the morning in place of lip balm while I get ready for the day.
My one issue with the Lip Bath is the applicator. Where you would usually see a doe-foot, Charlotte Tilbury uses an almost heart-shaped applicator. It’s not as precise as I’m used to so it means I have to be more aware of how I’m applying the gloss. It doesn’t seem to be making the application process any easier, so I’m not sure why the change – perhaps it’s just an aesthetic decision.
Either way, I still really love each of these products, and I’m actually looking into purchasing more from Tilbury’s Beauty Filters collections – the Exagger-Eyes Palette has my name written all over it! That’s an A for you Charlotte Tilbury! Loving your work!
