Charlotte Tilbury Quick ‘n’ Easy 5 Minute Makeup Revolution – Review, and Look

Sometimes picking out a bunch of makeup pieces to make one cohesive look can be a laborious process.  Say no more – Charlotte Tilbury to the rescue!

Charlotte Tilbury Quick ‘N’ Easy The 5 Minute Makeup Revolution

Charlotte Tilbury has put together four kits that include complimentary products, to help you create your desired look in 5 minutes.

“Calling all sirens!  Charlotte challenges you to create on of her four Quick ‘n’ Easy looks in just five minutes.  Choose from any four of her fabulous looks and go from drab to fab in no time at all.  Whether it’s daytime chic, a natural glow, a red-carpet party, or a smokey evening look, Charlotte has got you covered.”

Today I’m playing with the “natural glow” kit.  This kit comes in a see-through, mahogany red pouch, covered in gold kiss prints.  Inside the pouch is a ‘Wonder Glow Instant Soft-Focus Beauty Flash’ (15 mL), a Lip To Cheek Dew Colour Pop Beach Stick in ‘Moon Beach’ (6.5 g), a Colour Chameleon eyeshadow stick in ‘Amber Haze’ (1.8 g), a Legendary Lashes mascara in ‘Black Vinyl’ (4 mL), and a full-size Matte Revolution lipstick in ‘Very Victoria’ (3.5 g).

While this kit looks like it’s designed to contain all the products that you need for a full-face, I had to pull in a few extra products.  Because I experience a lot of redness on my face, the Wonder Glow wasn’t enough coverage for my liking, so I used it as a primer.  I did my brows, popped on some foundation, (Estée Lauder’s Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Serum – Review HERE), and just a bit of salmon-toned concealer for my under eyes.

I took the Colour Chameleon shadow pencil and applied it onto the outer half of my eyelid, and blended it upward into the crease, as well as inward towards the inner half of my lid, using a cream eyeshadow brush.  I tried to concentrate the colour more on the outside of my lid.  The product was a bit tough to blend with a brush, so I’d recommend blending gently with your fingertip.  I also tried using the shadow as an eyeliner, for some added pop.  Then I coated my lashes with the Legendary Lashes mascara, which I really liked.  It’s a light mascara, so it felt very comfortable, and gave a natural, yet lengthened look to my lashes – it reminded me of Urban Decay’s ‘Perversion’ mascara.  Then I applied the Beach Stick to my cheeks and blended it out with my fingers.  It was a very summer-y shade, which I’m all for, however I found that I couldn’t get the colour payoff that I wanted.  Either it was too stark, when I applied it straight onto my cheeks, or it blended out into a very sheer, almost unnoticeable tint.  Finally I topped the look off with the lipstick ‘Very Victoria’.  The lipstick was a “my lips but better” shade, with a dash of brown.  It felt super comfortable – it actually wore like a moisturizing balm!
