Charlotte Tilbury Brow Lift

I have two different makeup bags. One at home where everything is centered around. It is less of a bag and more the epicenter of disaster. Where bits and bobs of cosmetics radiate out from the center, strewn about haphazardly – finding the victims (err, specific items) is a process in itself. Some would say that I should pare down my arsenal, I would say that I should move someplace that has a larger bathroom, or even a vanity (who am I kidding, both, both is good).

The other makeup bag, is my outta the house kit. It is much smaller so that it fits easily in either my purse or my work tote. It has essential items for a basic face, and a few Sephora sample containers. One of those essentials is the Charlotte Tilbury Brow Lift in Grace K.

As much as I love the Anastasia Dipbrow, and now the NYX Tame & Frame, they just aren’t very portable. They both require me toting around my angled brush + spoolie, which while it doesn’t take up any room, is notorious for dirtying up the inside of your bag. A pencil type product is just much more practical. Enter Brow Lift. Which I have used so much, that I have worn the lettering off the side.

Described as a “Three-Way Shape, Lift & Shade Tool”. I love that the actual brow nib is angled instead of just a point like the Brow Wiz pencil. I have pretty full brows, they just need a bit of filling in since they’re fairly light. It also helps that the angle is pretty much the exact same width as my brow height. Give a couple swipes for definition, brush through with the spoolie, add a little highlight along the brow bone, and bam! Gorgeous looking, practically foolproof brows.

This is how it looks disassembled. While the brow shade and the spoolie both have normal pop off caps, the highlighter is a twistable one. It’s actually pretty cool, and springy. When you put the sponge back in the casing, it deposits the perfect amount of powder so that you don’t have to worry about making a mess.

My main dislike is the lack of shades available. There are only three, Grace K being the one that works the best for blondes. Good news is that it’s rather ashy and isn’t overly warm toned. Bad news is that it is a smidgen too dark for me, so I have to use a light hand when applying. Its a tightrope balancing act some mornings if I haven’t had coffee yet.

Narrow swatch, wide swatch, and highlight swatch. I’ve found that since the formula is more waxy than it’s substitutes (pencils, pomades, etc…), it sets really quickly and doesn’t smudge in the slightest. Though the highlighter does blend pretty easily thanks to it’s pigment and the brush it’s applied with.

  • Hi! I like smashbox Brow Tech To Go! But I’m liking this multitask one from Charlotte Tilbury!! nice post! I recently started my own beauty-related blog, I’d love for you to come check it out! X Josune, Your Beauty Script

    I never knew Nordstrom had Charlotte Tilbury! I’m still on the hunt for a do-it-all eyebrow product, I’ll have to check this out 🙂 You’d suggest Grace K for blondes, right?

    • They do! Unfortunately it’s only online for now (except for the big NY store). I hear that the Bellevue store up north and one down here in PDX are supposed to get a counter soon though [=

      Def Grace K for blondes, it’s still a little on the dark side for me so I need to make sure to do light brushes of it. That being said, I love it more than enough to put up with that!

        AHHH! If Bellevue got a Charlotte Tilbury store I would totally make a trip down to check out the products. I’ve heard SO many good things about Charlotte Tilbury and I’d love to actually see and try products before buying them! I’ve heard great things about this pencil from multiple people, I’ll have to get it when I’m all out of my dip brow!

        • I know! I really want/need some of the matte revolution lipsticks, but I’m not buying them without swatching them first. Luckily I got this for Christmas, otherwise I would’ve probably missed out for a while longer! But yeah, if we get one in the PNW soon, def check out the brow pencil [=
