Sooo as a PR/Marketing person, I need to take a moment to say that maybe the whole campaign slogan,
"Are you a #QuickNEasy girl?"
has some...inappropriate...connotations, am I right? Like, I don't think I would have gone with that one. But that's the only negative I have about this line because it's awesome.
I love solution-based products, and the Quick 'N' Easy Makeup kits from Charlotte Tilbury are just that. For $75, you get 4-5 deluxe sample and full-sized products and a cute makeup bag. I'll give you a quick rundown of the kits, then share my take.
The Natural Glow kit is the best value because you get five products, three of which are full-size. Add some concealer and brows, and this is a perfect everyday look for most skin tones.
Not really sure the purpose of this kit since it's basically the same tones as Natural Glow, but you don't get a lipstick (even though the beach stick is good for eyes/lips/cheeks), you only get two full-sized products (worth $67), and it's the same price. I'd say skip this one.
Red Carpet Party
Another three full-sized products, but no mascara. Still a decent value because the lipstick, lip liner and eye pencil are $76 on their own.
Smokey Eye Evening
With three full-sized products worth $81, this is the second-best value, and it's a great "desk to disco" kit, as Charlotte calls it.
The true value of these kits is that they eliminate your need to think about what products to use, and the corresponding YouTube videos show you how to apply the products. These kits are a great intro to the line and, if you have some Christmas cash to burn, I would definitely take the Natural Glow kit. That said, while I adore Charlotte Tilbury products for the great ingredients and very high quality, you would still be in great shape viewing the videos and creating your own kits with products you already have.
Another option (that I own!) is the limited-edition Instant Look In a Palette. Also for $75, you get three eye shadows, two blushes, a bronzer and illuminator.
This is my go-to palette when I travel, and word on the street is she's coming out with more shades.
