When it comes to applying eyeshadow I always apply a primer.
Sometimes I do a clear eyeshadow primer, but a lot of times I will actually apply a cream shadow as a base, which adds colour the lid, as well as helps to make my eyeshadow more vibrant. I have always been a fan of Charlotte Tilbury’s Eyes to Mesmerise (C$36), which is a cream eyeshadow that you can either wear alone or underneath shadow as a base.
These aren’t new to Charlotte’s lineup, however, she has recently introduced a couple new shades. If you haven’t tried out Eyes to Mesmerise, the formula contains smoothing silicones so the texture never feels greasy or oily, as well as polymers for a lustrous finish. These are also long wearing and have water in them to cool the eye area, vitamin E to hydrate and condition, and emollients so it’s easily blendable.
I’ve tried out a couple shades in the past of these but recently, the UK-based beauty brand has come out with a couple new shades and one of them is – you guessed it – Pillow Talk! Pillow Talk is the Charlotte Tilbury’s most iconic shade, so it’s about time that she released a shade in her Eyes to Mesmerize line.
Pillow Talk is a beautiful rose gold pink shade that is sure to make your eyes pop. I have blue eyes, so I find this shade really does wonders on making my eyes stand out. I love just swiping this on and applying a little brown in the crease and a champagne in the inner corner and then voila! My eyes are all good to go.
Another shade that is also new is Walk of No Shame, which is another colour that she is known for. Walk of No Shame is a rose colour with golden peach sparkle. Both shades are pretty universal and look amazing on just about any eye colour. I’m actually shocked that it’s taken her this long to release them in this product line.
Like I said, these are great to pick up since you can wear them so many different ways (I swatched them in the photos above prior to doing the rest of my makeup so you can see what the colour looks like applied). I also love sporting them in the summer months since I find cream products tend to do better on my skin when it’s hot and they are perfect to wear to the pool or the beach.
Have you tried any of Charlotte Tilbury’s Eyes to Mesmerize products?
