Charlotte Tilbury’s Mini Miracle Eye Wand Dynamic Duo Lift and Light Reflector

Hi darlings!!

I hope all is well and you’re having a wonderful week! 

Just wanted to hop on and do a quick review of Charlotte Tilbury’s Mini Miracle Eye Wand Dynamic Duo Lift and Light Reflector. Wow that’s a mouthful! Hahaha. I wear shade #3. 

I originally purchased this concealer because I was going to Disney for vacation and the concealer I was using left me with major flashback! It was not a cute look. So I went to Nordstrom in search of the perfect concealer. I like light, natural looking and nothing that’s going to make me look older around the eyes. The lovely sales rep sold me on CT. One end of the wand is the eye serum to plump up the under eye area and the other end is the color corrector. I liked this combo! 

I purchased the concealer for $45 and was on my way. The end result? My photos looked amazing. No wrinkles and no flashback. Win win for me. But this did come with some negatives….
  1. The price for one….$48 with tax! For me that’s a bit pricey especially when Tarte’s Shape Tape and Nars Radiant Creamy concealer is half the price. Even my beloved Chanel concealer is $43!
  2. The color tends to run orange…not sure if it’s only me but CT products can run a bit on the orange side. I’m a fan of her stuff but you have to go in with a light hand. 
  3. It only lasted me 2 months!!! Yes! Only 2 months! So I paid $48 for two months. All of my other concealers last at least 6 months. I was super upset. 

Would I repurchase? No. This is way too pricey and out of my budget! I would pass on this and get Tarte or Nars.
