Charlotte Tilbury has been a celebrated and celebrity makeup artists responsible for color collection for some makeup brands like Estée Lauder, however she came out of a brand heading and launched her own line, The House of Rock & Kohl.
Initially posting tutorials on youtube, Ms. Tilbury constantly made reference to her “magic potion” which has been heard of on runways and celebreties that immediately hydrated the upper layers of the skin with hyaluronic acid and botanical extracted, uppon application the skin acquires a dewy finish and an almost mirror like sheen that does not look greasy. Alongside this balm there is foundation and concealer with 10 shades of foundation to accomodate an expanded range of skin tones, blushers, contouring, an illuminator, two shade blushes, eye shadow pencils, eye shadow quads, kohl pencils, brow products, lip liner, lipstick and lip lacquers alongside some makeup removers, skincare and brush collection.
The quads are separated by type of iconic look like the bombshell, the vamp, the ingenue and other archetypes that remind us of how Kevyn Aucoin spoke of beauty.
What we like? All of it, we think the packaging is chic, the color selection is very smart, we are definitely getting our hands on base makeup and the pencil that sports a liquid eyeliner that you put on your waterline and sex it up and the name Rock & Kohl is cute, probably because a kohl pencil is so incredibly versatile and can create a complete look, the eyeshadow pencils are made to coordinate and enhance with eye color and we want to have them all.
Take a look at Charlotte’s website for all of the looks and all of the products for what seems so far to be most exciting new line of this Fall.
