This is my first Eyes to Mesmerise shadow from Charlotte Tilbury!!! I’ve wanted to try these for so long, but couldn’t settle on which color to purchase and struggled to rationalize the $34 price tag. However, three new shades were recently released, and I felt that the Exagger-Eyes shade would be just perfect for me!
Eyes to Mesmerise shadows have a wet, moussy texture. Mine was delivered on an extremely hot day, so I think the product melted and shifted a bit in the package. The product can be applied with a finger, but I did prefer using a brush to get more precision and better blending around the edges.
This product can be purchased from Charlotte Tilbury here for $34.
The only thing I don’t love about it is that it’s more glittery/sparkly than I had anticipated. I feel that I would wear it more often if it was a tad less glittery. The product performs beautifully though, so I have no complaints with product quality, and the shade is very beautiful as well. I mean, it is REALLY pretty. And the sparkle is very nice and sophisticated as you would expect from a Charlotte Tilbury product.
I purchased the Easy Eye Wand in the shade Super Chic in the same order from Charlotte Tilbury (swatched above) because I thought they’d make a nice pair, and I’m in search of more cream and stick shadows. I’ll hopefully get around to making a swatch post for that product, too. But today we focus on Exagger-Eyes.
Products Swatched Above:
- Exagger-Eyes Eyes to Mesmerise by Charlotte Tilbury ($34 at Sephora)
- Space Cowboy eyeshadow single from Urban Decay ($22 at Ulta)
- Icicle Glaze Over Shimmer Topcoat from Jaclyn Cosmetics (no longer available)
- Golden Pink Longwear eyeshadow stick from Bobbi Brown ($32 for full size at Sephora)
- Blushed single shadow from Sydney Grace ($6.25 at Sydney Grace)
- Envious shade from Nars Climax palette, out of production, but currently available at Nordstrom Rack for $28.97 (I super love this palette, and that’s a great deal!)
- Valentine, single shadow from Ulta Beauty Collection(store brand), available for $9
Exagger-Eyes ended up leaning a bit cooler and more taupe than most of the other shades I swatched. Golden Pink and Blushed have a smoother texture than Exagger-Eyes, but the other products all have noticable sparkle particles in them like Exagger-Eyes does.
Hope you found this helpful! Video swatch can be found on my Instagram (@stefsedge).
I’m interested to see how this product holds up since I believe it has a pretty short recommended shelf life. I’ve still got my eye on a few more shades!
