What did I try today?
Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes Volume 2 Mascara in Black Vinyl
This mascara is described as the “Instant Volume and Lengthening Miracle Mascara” as described on the box.
I’ve been eyeing (no pun intended) this mascara for a while now. I love Charlotte Tilbury and her line. Although not everything has worked for my skin type, there are so many amazing products that she creates, which are all about a beautiful complexion and glow.
This mascara retails for $32.00 on CharlotteTilbury.com.
It received 4 out of 5 stars on CharlotteTilbury.com as well. Many people liked it and a few didn’t. Read on to see my thoughts!
What it is supposed to do
This mascara has many claims! The box states that its supposed to provide:
- 500% more volume
- 100% thicker lashes
- Visibly longer lashes
- Long Lasting
- Smudge proof
- Humidity resistant
Those are some pretty impressive claims. From what I was researching, apparently the first rendition of this mascara smudged everywhere. People didn’t like the smudging and that is why she came out with a “2” version. Notice that this one claims to be “smudge proof” and “humidity resistant.”
I’m loving this wand y’all. This is my idea of a fantastic wand. There are many bristles that can get into every lash. It picks up just the right amount of product and doesn’t over clump every lash on first swipe. It’s very nice and easy to work with. The bristles bend and shape your lashes as you apply the product. VERY nice!
Application and Formula
First impressions of this formula: WOW. It made my eyelashes look very fluttery and almost fake! It applied easily, didn’t get everywhere, was easy to apply multiple coats, and it didn’t dry too fast where you needed to work extra quick. I didn’t notice a strong scent, which makes me happy!
The effect is AMAZING. It lengthened and made a ton of volume! It also made the lashes very beautiful. I loved the look!
Real Life Wear
Beautiful! This formula must be much improved from the original (just from what I read, I haven’t tried the original), because it didn’t smudge or transfer! I was pleasantly surprised. It didn’t flake or irritate my eyes either. First wear was fantastic.
I removed this mascara with a gentle oil-based cleanser and it came right off. I didn’t have any pieces of mascara on my eyes or anything flaking in my eyes. That’s always a pain when mascaras flake in your eyes when you are trying to remove them!
GREAT mascara. I would definitely say this one is up there. 5/5 for me. I would highly recommend trying from my first impressions!!!
Have you tried it? Did it work for you?
