Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise in Mona Lisa and Marie Antoinette

Hi!

Ever since I saw swatches of Charlotte Tilbury's Eyes to Mesmerise cream eyeshadows on ReallyRee's site back in March, I have been lusting after these. They finally landed on our shores on May 4th, all six glorious shades.

Here are the six:


Inspired by various women throughout history, the Eyes to Mesmerise collection is striking. I finally settled on two shades, Mona Lisa and Marie Antoinette.


The packaging is gorgeous as usual - heavy frosted glass jars with 7ml of product inside. There's a suggestion on the boxes from Charlotte, saying you should apply these with her eye blender brush. That blending brush is available from Brown Thomas. It's out of my price range, so I applied these with a Blank Canvas E26 blending brush instead. Do NOT go in to these with your fingers. They're extremely pigmented, so you'll end up with far too much on your fingers unless you have the phalanges of a very, very small child.


Here's a look at Mona Lisa:






I love this so much. SO MUCH. It did crease when I put it on, but I blended it in more and it was fine after that. It didn't go hard or cakey, and it did not budge. I pretty much applied this within a half hour of receiving my order, so that was around 12pm. Here's what it looked like before I took my makeup off at 11pm that night:


Here's Marie Antoinette in action: 






The Eyes to Mesmerise cream eyeshadows are available from Brown Thomas priced at €26 each. We're actually getting a pretty good deal there, because they're £22 a pop in the UK - over €30. Are any of them, eh..... catching your eye? (sorry)

    1. If you do apply them with your fingers go easy, they're so thick! I'd say some of the bronzey gold ones would be amazing on you x

  3. Both are gorgeous! I think Mona Lisa would be the one I went for too. What lipstick are you wearing the the Marie Antoinette photo, looks a good spring / summer colour :)

    1. It's actually a liquid lipstick from eBay, they're around 99p from China, I'm almost sure this is shade #26, the brand is Menow :)

  4. I read the ingredients of these and they're the exact same as the Tom Ford ones, only Tom's got fruit extracts in. They look gorgeous on you, as does that lippy!
