Charlotte Tilbury’s Mini Miracle Eye Wand – not so miraculous?

2 points I do every morning consistently – – 1. use eye cream, 2. Apply concealer/highlighter in a vain effort to cover my pesky eye bags. A dual ended wand that does both … music to my ears eyes however can it truly supply 8-hours rest in two clicks? Tilbury’s Mini Wonder Eye Wand?

29 is called ‘an amazing two-step solution for bags and dark circles, because the whole world is tired ‘. There’s an eye lotion at one end to tighten up and smooth and also a highlighter at the various other end to hide and also lighten up. I intended to like this item.

I desired it to be a sent-from-god, mni-miracle, life-saving, holy-grail-in-the-making item. Sadly, it’s not. At the very least not in my (exhausted) eyes. I’m not saying it’s a significant fall short, but it’s barely the magic stick it declares to be.

The eye cream is loaded with all the best rewards– hyaluronic acid, Butter Remove, Jojoba Seed Oil, Borage Seed Oil, Bran Healthy Protein, Glycerin and all that jazz BUT i find it fairly watery as well as on its own, it does not do a lot for the cause. It absolutely hydrates as well as smoothes out the location, however it’s not as efficient in my opinion as Vichy x and Eye Fixing, which both really feel richer as well as have outstanding light-reflecting residential properties.

The highlighter comes in 5 tones. I’ve obtained color 2, a neutral off-white color for light complexion with neutral undertones. It’s a decent colour suit – – light enough to highlight yet not also light that it looks macabre. It’s loaded with micro-particles that brighten darkness, conceal discolouration as well as diffuse the appearance of under-eye hollows. It’s very light-weight and also absolutely has skills in the lightening up division and it photographs perfectly! It is lacking however in the concealing department as well as because my eye bags are blue toned, they respond much better to yellow toned highlighters like MAC Preparation & & Prime Highlighter in Boost as well as YSL Touche Eclat 2. This set’s a bit too neutral.

Currently right here’s the main trouble, the two work in harmony. The eye cream does give a wonderful, smooth base, however the concealer doesn’t mix well over it. It kinda sits on top of the eye cream looking uneven and working out into the folds. I need to function my ass off to obtain it to blend in. I have actually attempted patting, I’ve attempted rubbing as well as ultimately I have actually resorted to utilizing a soft bristle eye brush to develop a more airbrushed effect.

A pair extra quarms, the brush applicator is really tiny, I would certainly have suched as for it to be a bit fatter, and this could have aided with blending. Speaking of size, the product is a frustrating 3mls. Presumably 1.5 ml at each end. Compare this to MAC prep & & Prime highlighter 3.6 ml or bareMinerals stroke of light 5.5 ml, this stick ain’t gon na last long.

I’m not stating I do not like this item, I do! It delivers results (you can most definitely see the distinction in the pictures) however after 5 years growth and also talk of “miniature miracles”, I am a little disappointed. I’ll enjoy utilizing it in the meantime, yet I question I’ll repurchase, which’t the supreme acid examination.

Have you tried it yet? Thumbs up or thumbs down?
