8 hours sleep in two clicks

A couple of weeks ago, I went to Charlotte Tilbury's press preview of her upcoming autumn and Christmas collections.

I wrote about Christmas and her Magic Foundation straight away, but I wanted to really take my time with the Mini Miracle Eye Wand and ensure that it was amazing before I wrote about it.

I’ve taken my time. It’s amazing.

Let’s start with the fact that Charlotte’s wand is a world first in that it has a brush on two ends. Step 1¬†contains a Hydrating and Lifting Eye Cream, and Step 2 the Illuminate Under-Eye Light Reflector (concealer). Both are released with a quick twist and click, then applied using their respective brushes. As with all of her products it’s just so quick and easy. You don’t even need to pat anything in with your finger, let alone carry an additional brush.

Here’s how it works…

Step 1: Hydrating and Lifting Eye Cream

  • Can be used twice per day
  • Contains hyaluronic acid, plumping the skin and great for keeping skin hydrated therefore no drying, clumpy concealer
  • Bio Extract of Salicornia to reduce loss of water, again keeping everything fresh and dewy
  • Acanthium promotes cellular repair
  • Cyclodextrins to lift the eye dome
  • Rice Proteins to reduce bags, fighting ageing and fatigue

What’s great about this cream is that it slightly tightens when you apply it, really firming the eye area and keeping everything in place. It’s a bit like a pair of spanx for the eyes. If you haven’t had a lot of sleep, this helps to sculpt you back to normality.

Step 2: Illuminate Under-Eye Light Reflector 

I really, really get on well with this. Sometimes I find that concealers with lots of coverage are heavy and ageing, but lighter concealers don’t do enough to colour correct. This strikes a perfect balance of the two, offering instant colour correction and evening out the skin tone but with a light, dewy consistency.

  • “A million lights” light-reflecting micro-particles to diffuse light
  • Mother of Pearl to add radiance
  • Polypeptides to minimise dark circles over time
  • Silky elastomers to smooth over wrinkles

Charlotte describes this as part of her ‘treat and transform’ range of skincare and make-up hybrids, designed to ease the appearance of fatigued eyes over time and brighten them instantly.

If you’re yet to find a concealer to take away bags without sitting in your lines, look no further. This is it.

Katerina says:

hi,could you please compare it to the current concealer?

Tracey E. says:

How does it compare with Bobbi Brown’s corrector and concealer? How does CT’s Retoucher fit in? (I find the Retoucher terrible for under eye correction and use it more as a face concealor or highlighter.
