The launch of Charlotte Tilbury line in the US is probably one of the most anticipated this year. While there are products that had me swoon at first wear, in particular, Filmstar Killer Cheekbones Set and Kissing Lipstick, The Rock Chick Luxury palette was quite a disappointment. Are you ready to read the worst? Scroll down and let the photos do the talking…
According to the website, this $29 brow product is a liner and shader in one. Heck, I didn’t even see the shader (highlighter) until I unscrewed it hoping to find the “missing” liner. What the what?
|Don’t blink or you may not see this again!|
|shader good for five to ten uses? rip-off!|
I’m big on brows in case you don’t know yet. I like ’em natural-looking and well-groomed and even if I consider Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade my holy grail to-date, I’m still curious to try other brands. Well, curiosity killed the cat. And yes, I’m a bad blogger because I have no swatch of this liner which I believe is in the shade Brooke S a.k.a medium (recommended for dark blonde to medium brown hair) but hear me out first, there is a story.
Texture is the worst, packaging is the cheapest. Brutally frank, this liner drags and creates the most unflattering and unnatural looking brows. It does not apply seamless, in fact I let it sit for few days atop my vanity hoping it will soften as it adjust to Hawaii tropical weather. I even watched the video hoping to learn a new technique. None of that helped. On my third attempt to use it, the liner broke, revealing a teeny weeny ONE-inch size to my surprise!!! That’s it? a spoolie on the other end and a negligible demi-shader in the middle? So practically I paid for air?!!!! Irate and running late for work, I put the broken liner back inside, undecided as to when I will review it.
take note, this liner was only used 3x but look! the letters chipped like it traveled to hell and back.
So the fateful day came and lo! the diminutive liner fell again just when I’m about to swatch it. I searched frantically high and low, thinking that my dog may eat the freakin’ liner. Nowhere in sight. Vanished into oblivion. Left without goodbye. Chucky pranked me, who knows…. $29 charged to experience, tell me if this isn’t the worst.
I don’t know about you but strike two in my little black book of must-try’s is no bueno.
