When the eyes are the window to the soul, you want them to look good. I think that my eyes are my best asset and love to create eye looks that enhance my green eyes whilst still being quick and easy to do. Using just three products and a pat of glitter, I’m shocked at how sultry and sexy I’ve made my eyes look without using 3428 brushes and several palettes. Dipping into my Charlotte Tilbury collection and using the brand new Legendary Lashes Vol, I’m pretty darn impressed. Here’s a really quick and easy way to recreate the classic Charlotte Tilbury Amber Haze eye look.
What I love about the Colour Chameleon pencils is that they are so hard wearing and long lasting. I have a couple of shades in my collection, and started off with the shades for green eyes; Amethyst Aphrodisiac and Bronzed Garnet. As I’m not one to limit myself, I got a couple for hazel and brown eyes as well. Amber Haze is the brown eyes night shade and is a gorgeous antiqued bronze shade that has light reflecting particles to give an alluring shimmer. The pencil doesn’t contain glitter, and in this look I have added this myself using loose rose gold glitter.
The pencil dries down very quickly to give a smudge proof and budge proof shadow. You do need to work quickly if you want to blend and my MAC 217 was the perfect brush to blow out the shape and blend any hard edges away. It’s not very often that I only wear one shade but it was quite refreshing to work on the blend and the intensity of the colour across my eye.
I wanted to keep the eye soft and smoked out so a pencil eyeliner was the liner of choice for this look. Having previously used the Rock ‘n’ Kohl in Bedroom Black, I’m really pleased to get hold of the Rock ‘n’ Kohl in Barbarella Brown. I’ve really noticed a bit of shift these days in my use of brown liner over black and it makes such a difference. The Rock ‘n’ Kohl pencils glide on like a mix of liquid liner and pencil, and they set solid. No smudging, no flaking, easy to blend and smudge out before they dry down. It really is a great pencil, plus it’s waterproof enough even for my watery hay fever eyes.
There’s a new mascara on the block, and it’s the Legendary Lashes Vol.2. Now, in the interest of clarity and honesty, I am going to state the fact that the original Legendary Lashes was awful. It was wet, it got everywhere and it flaked. It gave me panda eyes and it didn’t do anything I wanted a mascara to do. I didn’t particularly enjoy the Full Fat Lashes either as I found that it smudged everywhere. As you can imagine, I was apprehensive of trying Legendary Lashes Vol.2.
First impressions of Legendary Lashes were the standard ‘wow, I love the Tilbury packaging’. Regardless of the product inside, the packaging is always beautiful. I loved the shape of the wand, the bristles looked like they would grab all the lashes without coating my lid in product and that I could get a grip on each lash to work the mascara through. Bottom lashes coated first and a nice amount of product was transferred over, with no clumping. Moving on to the top lashes, I was very impressed with what I was seeing. There is nothing worse that a mascara giving short stubby lashes, and I found that Legendary Lashes pulled through each lash, coating without clumping, and I had a lot of control over product distribution.
With the warm (sweltering) weather we are having at the moment, and in between the commute to work, my hot office and the commute home, my make up is really being put through it’s pace. Legendary Lashes has remained carbon black on my lashes, with no peeling and flaking or any smudges whatsoever. I think Ms Tilbury has nailed this formulation and has taken on board all the negatives about the original formula to bring a superior mascara. I’m very, very impressed.
