Charlotte Tilbury Quick N' Easy Red Carpet Party Kit
Coming soon from Charlotte Tilbury are a selection of Quick N' Easy Makeup Kits that will help you achieve the look you want in just five minutes. Since Chrismas is coming soon, I wanted to create a festive yet simple look using the Quick N' Easy Red Carpet Party Kit. To get a sneak peek at what's inside the set (along with some swatches), click......

The Quick N' Easy Red Carpet Party Kit comes in an adorable see-through makeup pouch. You get three full-sized products (the lipstick, the lip liner, and the eyeliner) and one mini-sized Wonder Glow. The kit isn't listed on the Charlotte Tilbury website just yet and I am not sure what the retail price will be but I'd expect it to be slightly lower than what the individual product costs would add up to.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in "Red Carpet Red" ($38 CAD):
A true red with a satin-matte finish, "Red Carpet Red" actually has a tiny hint of red and gold sparkles which took me by surprise. The formulation is nicely pigmented, silky, and not too drying. When we speak of classic red lips, "Red Carpet Red" is pretty much the perfect choice. It's super festive yet very sophisticated at the same time.

Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Instant Soft-Focus Beauty Flash Primer ($65 CAD for Full-Sized 40ml):
Previously reviewed on the blog (check out my full review here), the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow is a lightweight, serum-like primer that can also be used as a highlighter. The product is filled with very fine shimmers. Once blended as a primer or mixed in with your foundation, the product gives no more than a subtle glow, which is perfect for someone who just wants a more radiant complexion as opposed to a glittery shine.

Charlotte Tilbury Rock N' Kohl Eye Liner in "Barbarella Brown" ($32 CAD):
A natural chocolate brown, "Barbarella Brown" is a simple pencil liner that swatches nicely on the back of my hand. It glided smoothly and blended easily before setting to a smudge-proof finish. Unfortunately, when I tried to use this on the lid the formulation refused to blend and set almost instantaneously, making it impossible for me to smudge it out for a smokier look. The wear is not completely smudge-proof or waterproof but it held up pretty well.

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner in "Kiss N' Tell" ($27 CAD):
Lip liners are generally not my thing but I do like a good red lip liner as they really help extend the wear of any red lipsticks. Lip Cheat in "Kiss N' Tell" is a classic true red. The formulation is very pigmented and although it isn't extremely creamy, it applies smoothly and sets quickly to a transfer-proof finish. The liner feels quite drying so it's better paired with a more moisturizing lipstick. I recommend applying the liner all over the lips as opposed to just the outer rim if you want your lipstick to last all day (and all night).
