What the brand says
Legendary Lashes is one of the hero products from the Charlotte Tilbury range. The mascara is claimed to be a ‘miracle’ with a formula that is enriched with lengthening and conditioning ingredients.
I saw this mascara in the review of 2016 Charlotte Tilbury advent calendar. Whilst I didn’t really think the calendar was worth it (too many creams) I did quite like the look of the mascara. I had a £50 Selfridges voucher which was perfect as it allowed me to get the mascara and a Bobbi Brown concealer.
The packaging is quite unique with a brown box and gold lettering. I really like the gold eye motif that adorns the box which has super long lashes. Inside is a gold wand with black lettering and the same eye motif. The mascara has a bristle brush with lots of different bristles of varied lengths. The bristles seem to be really small towards the wand and get larger as they extend towards the end of brush.
The formula is the perfect consistency – not too wet and not too dry – and I built up a nice coat quite quickly. It did make quite a mess when I was applying it but it was easy enough to wipe off. I wouldn’t say this mascara is as dramatic as it’s made out to be but it did leave my lashes beautifully defined with zero clumping and a lovely lash curl. It stays put all day and there’s no smudging or panda eyes.
A lovely mascara that gives a really nice lash effect. I wouldn’t say you get a false lash effect but it does give your lashes something extra to make your eyes stand out.
I give it 4/5
