Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes: Worth the Hype?

"New mascara" --two words that this beauty fanatic loves to see. When I first heard of the new Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes mascara I was intrigued. I've had kind of a hit-and-miss with her products. 

But when I saw a demo of this mascara a couple of months ago, I immediately signed up for the wait list. And when it was released last week, I had to have it. 

Normally, I test beauty products for a month or so, but there's so much hype about this new mascara, that I had to share a review right now! Did you see my preview of it on Snapchat?

So is the new Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes worth the hype

Who is Charlotte Tilbury?
Famous UK celeb makeup artist who launched her own line a couple of years ago--high end products in rose gold packaging

What is Legendary Lashes Mascara?
  • inspired by starlets, supermodels, "Hollywood"
  • revolutionary new lash-enhancing elastic formula extends out the lashes like a piece of elastic
  • 13x more volume in just three coats
  • a thick, lush Hollywood false lash 
The unique mix of waxes and genius ingredients include:
  • Marine Glycogen: a new, exciting hair tonic that is known to stimulate the growth of the hair follicle and the proliferation of keratin cells.
  • Tamanu Oil has regenerating properties in order to protect, nourish and strengthen the lashes.

Order at Beautylish or via CT website.

On your left, 1 coat. On your right, 2 coats. I loved 3 coats from afar, but up close it looked a little clumpy. I'll post 3 coats on my Snapchat if you're interested.

Looks amazing, right? I LOVE this mascara. I love the instant effect it gives.

Here's what I noticed:
  • wet mascara, similar to L'Oreal Telescopic or L'Oreal Butterfly wetness-wise, but a different formula...unlike anything I've used
  • didn't flake
  • since I have dry skin, I tried to recreate an oily skin effect to see if it would smudge. I found it did smudge on my lower lash line if my undereye was not set with powder.
  • I like the scent of it (weird!) but I have a sinus infection, haha
  • easy to remove, but some makeup removers would leave little bits on my waterline
  • didn't irritate eyes
  • OVERALL: While this is pricey for a mascara, I would DEFINITELY buy it again. Great for instant volume and length with little effort required. Instant results. Currently my favorite mascara.

Have you heard of Legendary Lashes?
Would you try it?

Extra Elle:
  • Finally feeling better, so I ventured out for a friend's housewarming party over the weekend.
  • I also saw "Purple Rain" at the Fox Theatre in all of its 80s cheesy, bad acting glory. I'm a big Prince fan and it was an amazing experience--the crowd was so into it, like a concert.


  1. I haven't heard of Legendary Lashes but I love trying new mascara's. Your eyes look amazing! My friend is having a Purple Rain party in a few weeks to watch the movie. Glad you are feeling better!

  2. I've been wanting to try out CT products! They all look so amazing :)

  3. Love the packaging!! You can see how it lifted your lashes!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. How gorgeous is that mascara??? I'm with you, mascara is one of my top makeup products (and eyeliner!). I often don't buy high end mascara because they usually only come in black. I think black looks harsh on my fair skin. That said, if they expand the color choices, I might give this a try because the effect is so lovely!

    I'm also glad it didn't flake. I've tried the Younique mascara and didn't like it because the fibers got everywhere, including my eye!

  5. So glad to hear that you liked this mascara! I am always looking for one that lengthens. I am also glad that you are feeling better Elle!

  6. Glad to hear you thought it was worth the hype and would buy again! I love the packaging and it really does make your lashes look great! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  7. I hadnt heard of this. I dont think that's too pricey really when I pay nearly the same amount for the younique 3d lashes. This looks great on your eyes

  8. I saw Wayne Goss raving about this too but it's really pricey for what it is. I don't know if I'll ever purchase it.

  9. That mascara definitely seems very pricey, but man does it do a great job! It's good to know that it probably will smudge too!

  10. This is such a great review, Elle! I have been wondering about this mascara. I love all the other products from Charlotte Tilbury. Good to know it's worth the price!

  17. Oh wow! I've only heard great things about the CT line, and this mascara sounds fab! Unfortunately, if it's $US32, that means it's like $50Cdn...sigh....

  34. I hadn't heard anything about this till I saw your SnapChat. The results are amazing. I'm all about a new mascara too. I just picked up a new one at the drugstore--the CoverGirl Super Sizer with Fibers. I can't help myself when it comes to mascara. Must try them all!

  35. This mascara sounds incredible.


  36. So nice that you like Prince, me too! And that you are feeling better. Me, I caught the swine flu, 8 days in bed now :( I never heard of Legendary Lashes, but wow, the difference it makes, 2 coats are amazing! And it doesn't irritate eyes, so it's good for contact lenses users! I am eager to buy this mascara!

  37. I saw your snapchat review, so I figured this was coming! Your lashes look great! A little more than I can justify spending on a mascara, but it really looks like you're wearing falsies!

  38. holy crap your lashes look great! i love. pretty much worth it for the money!

  39. You can definitely see the difference in your lashes! It gives you a ton of volume! So glad this is working for you. I would love to try Charlotte Tillbury products one day.

  40. Hmm, beautiful lashes, I have many lashes in home.

  41. Oooh, they look fab!! I always thought Charlotte Tillbury was some WAG in the UK... Oops! Well, I am in need of new mascara so I shall check this one out!
