Beauty Trends Become A Hot Topic With A Blink Of An Eye. Let’s Find Out If You Can Be A Part Of The “IT” Trend By Getting The Most-Hyped Product In A Heartbeat Or If It’s Just A Bust For You.
We are all too familiar with contouring our faces to achieve that typical “snatched” supermodel look. And, being makeup novices, we don’t always try new beauty trends out of fear of failing. But when we saw contouring going viral on every social media platform, we were curious to see what it’s all about. So, we decided to give the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand a shot to understand the hype.
No doubt it offers a decent coverage, but on the contrary, you may find this contour to be really watery. By watery we mean, it can almost take some of your foundation off, as it appears to just be that liquid-y. And once you initially open it, you’ll realize that the tube is very deceiving – half filled with air.
It basically looks empty after a single use.
Moving on to the packaging, we feel it definitely can get the same results without a tricky, leaky applicator. The way lid has been designed, it actually doesn’t fit securely on the tube, which leads to several explosions. And, the downside is when one can’t even control the amount of product that squirts out, it’s way too much! Beacause of a sloppy lid, it wastes so much product because of just getting spilled out over the lid.
This gets so messy, as it just explodes everywhere when opened, and once you want to close the top, you’ll get it all over your fingers. Further on it turns to leak out from both the ends. So, one can be just left with barely anything after all.
Well, that’s not all due to its texture, it does show up on light skin but it doesn’t work on tan, medium or darker skin, which in turn is a serious concern. We don’t blame the shade, it’s subtle, but it’s very hard to blend, fades away quickly and also leaves patches on the contoured area, which is hard to blend!
We get it, if you want to get this product for the aesthetic applicator. As if something that’s going to last you a literal week and don’t even bother to blend with your skin appeals you, it’s all yours. But, don’t you forget – the packaging is super easy to mess or just make a mess with, regardless of how hard you try.
Don’t believe us? Go ahead and we hope it turns out well for you!
