Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes: Black Vinyl

Charlotte Tilbury is one of my favorite makeup brands so you could imagine my delight with my last online order when I received a ‘Golden Hollywood Ticket’ with my order. This ticket was marketed to ship out a ‘prize’ with a minimum $100 CAD purchase. Given the high minimum order quantity and how hyped up this campaign was on the website, I figured it would be something special like a free makeover or deluxe size sample so you could imagine my disappointment when instead I received a mini mascara sample (i’ve laid it beside a normal size mascara (L’Oreal Lash Paradise) for reference). Hopefully this helps anyone contemplating the value of redeeming their ticket. It’s annoying how over hyped beauty brands are becoming for what they deliver but putting my feelings aside, here are my thoughts on the mascara:

The bristles are ‘bushy’, ‘regular sized’ to normal mascaras. The formula is the blackest mascara that I own, it’s blacker than black! This creates depth with my eyes and added drama leaving no need for falsies. The effect that this gives you can get quite heavy and clumpy if you don’t wipe off the formula on a tissue before applying it. It’s not waterproof but it does hold a curl fairly well.

Overall, a nice mascara but for the added TLC needed to ensure it doesn’t clump, i have better clump free and voluminizing mascaras. This is nice but not beauty swatched for me.

    That’s so lame. They make you think you’re actually getting a real prize!

      Totally!! This definitely left me a bit scorn. With the great perk programs out there from Sephora and Ulta, CT really needs to pick up her game

        Agreed! You get way better stuff from Ulta and them.

    The packaging is beautiful, but I agree about it being clumpy and having to wipe it away, so much hassle!!

      Right?? I could sit there with a lash comb to separate and hours after to remove but there are a lot more ‘fuss free’ mascaras out there…
