Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Eye Pencil in Amethyst Aphrodisiac
I’m on a lazy makeup roll this week, and a bit of a pencil kick too, which brings me to Charlotte Tilbury’s cult range of “colour morphing” pencils, the Colour Chameleon range. They are gorgeous pencils, but I did find the “colour morphing” claims a little incomprehensible until I figured out that the colours that were “morphing” were your eye colours, not the pencil shades.
My eyes are rather an unusual colour, being brown, green and yellow plus having hints of blue in the limbal ring, so first off picking the right colour of pencil for my eyes was difficult. They’re based on the colour wheel principle of complementary colours, and I couldn’t figure out if you’d class my eyes as green, or brown or hazel, as there’s a day and a night option of pencil for every eye colour (but not, it seems, for eyes of every colour). Eventually I picked the purple Amethyst Aphrodisiac to play up the green in my eyes.
These are glitter city! I must mention it, because they are the most glittery things I put on my eyes these days, and I can find glitter in the oddest places even after a very thorough cleanse! Do not, under any circumstances, use these to line the inner rim of the eye, I think they could definitely scratch your cornea, and no one needs that.
It’s a good and murky purple:
Creamy, and easy to blend, I apply this as a thick line of eyeliner, then blend it out towards the crease. It sets after around 30 seconds or so, and is pretty hard to budge after that time. I’m quite happy to wear it during the day, but for a more dramatic look, it is great with very black eyeliner too. The colour lasts well, even on unprimed eyelids, I only experience creasing after a very long time in wear (after around ten hours or so), and on primed lids it will probably last even longer. I rarely prime my lids if I’m in a hurry though. The glitter will remain though, I warn you!
You will need a pencil sharpener for this as it is not retractable, and they are sold seperately. Colour Chameleon pencils are available from Selfridges and Charlottetilbury.com and cost £19 each.
