Are you in need of a new makeup product for Spring? Let’s face-it, we all are! I hope this review will help you with at least one of your choices.

I’m excited to share my review about the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Eye Shadow Pencil, it is incredibly easy to use and gives dramatic results in seconds.  this product is a real time saver when you are looking to apply a great looking eye shadow with speed.

Product:   Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Eye Shadow Pencil
Description:   Colour Morphing Eye Shadow Pencil
Shade:    Bronzed Garnet for Green Eyes
Where to Buy:   I purchased mine from
Price:   I paid £19 ($23 approx)
My rating:  10/10

Product Overview

The Charlotte Tilbury range is every bit the quality product that you would expect from this British Makeup Artist with her own branded range of beauty products.

Everything about the product is luxurious, for starters the packaging is very stylish and is complete with all the information that you need. To quote from the packaging “Intensify your eyes natural colour and sparkle.  Choose from a soft-focus day or stunning night look tailored to your eye colour.  Infused with synthetic sapphire lasts up to 10 hours.  Waterproof.  Do not use inside the eyes.”

You will not believe just how easy the Colour Chameleon is to use, it has the feel of “Chubby Stick” it is thicker than a typical eye pencil which allows it to cover the eyelid with ease whilst being an ideal size to hold in your hand and control.

The product itself delivers a velvety texture and just glides over the eyelid with such ease, it does not drag the skin and I find it very easy to blend in.

The Description for the shade of Bronzed Garnet says “for Green eyes” which I would say is highly accurate, yes I have Green eyes but to be honest this shade would suit all.

For the best results I would recommend that you cover the whole lid right up to the crease using a light application, remember you can always add more, then you need to use your “ring finger” (I was taught during my training many years ago that this finger has the least amount of pressure and is ideal), to blend in.

For evening wear I would apply a liquid liner (as per my Summer Makeup post that provides a little demonstration of the YSL Shocking eye liner in Black and the same YSL product is also highlighted in my Spring Look Post) for ease of application and you don’t need a steady hand, I would use small dashes and join them up if you don’t feel confident enough to draw a straight line, I would use about three quarters of the way across of the eye lid staying very close to the lash line. 

Another tip for evening wear is to use the Colour Chameleon along the bottom lashes but keep it light and only about half way across, less is more.

The beauty of using this product for us “more mature ladies” is that you don’t want end up with heavy layers of eye shadow that can collect along the crease of the eyelid which can have the effect of actually highlighting the smaller natural creases too.

The Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Eye shadow pencil is such a wonderful product to use for the over 50’s, it is light in application, doesn’t show up any of those little creases but delivers on style and glamour for day to evening.


A Little About Net-A-Porter.Com

Net-A-Porter is a designer online shopping website, they deliver to many destinations all over the world, I have used them to send presents to family in Australia, they offer free and beautifully stylish packaging with every purchase.

There service is incredibly professional and luxurious no matter how little you spend with them.  I love the Black Boxes with tissue inside and finished off with a gorgeous bow of Black and White hence my reason for choosing my presents from their site 🙂


They have three delivery services to choose from:  Standard usually within 3 – 5 working days but some times quite a speedy delivery, Nominated Day – again very accurate and Next Business day if you order before a certain time – I have never experienced any problems what so ever.

The word “Designer” can put some people off, as it often equates “vastly expensive” but you will be amazed by the leap in quality you can obtain from just a small incremental cost, I don’t spend a fortune on any of my purchases and usually stick to the more commercialised brands such Michael Kors, J Crew and when I really push the boat out, McQueen.

They have an excellent beauty products range to choose from, in my opinion with beauty and makeup you get what you pay for and more value for money in the long run.


Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Eye Shadow Pencil is a great makeup product, versatile, incredible value for money, a kind eye shadow to use for the over 50’s, adds Glamour with a hint of sexy 😉

  1. I’ve never really known much about make-up but you have helped me to understand so much. I’m excited to get shopping and try somethings out which I never thought I would say! I thought my grandchildren would know more about make-up before me but not now.
    What first products do you recommend as there is so much information and reviews I want to try it all but cant afford to do that?

    1. Hi Danielle,

      It’s a pleasure to meet you and thank you for contacting me 🙂

      I really do appreciate all your positivity regarding my Charlotte Tilbury post, your comments have made my day and week.

      You sound lovely and very family orientated, love your profile photo.

      I’m so pleased that I have sparked a passion for makeup in you, you will only need maybe four items to start you off and will be delighted by the look you can achieve.

      My advice is to have fun and play around with different looks, as long as you apply thin coats and layer up, you can enhance your features and still look quite natural.

      I would take a look at my first post “How to look Younger” followed by “my makeup bag essentials” then “my Spring makeup” post, they will give you ideas and where to start.

      I think that getting your base makeup looking good is always the first step to take, I use YSL Touche elcat Foundation, YSL “Baby Doll” Kiss and Blush cream blusher (much kinder for dare I say mature skin), I love the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Eye Shadow Pencil as my base eye colour and add a YSL eye liner either in the “shocking” range such as Black, Blue or Green or the YSL Waterproof Eye Pencil range.

      I hope that all this has helped and please let me know what fun you have trying out your new found interest in makeup.

      Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

      All the best

  2. I am a male so I would not be using the charlotte-tilbury eye-shadow pencil, or any eye shadow pencil for that matter. Still read you post though as i have found that women’s issues many times find a way of impinging on men’s lives and vice versa. I like your style of writing which is easy to digest and thoughtful. I was going through your comments section and was mildly surprised that an eighty year old reader was asking about the product

    1. Hi Everton,

      I do love to hear from a Male point of view and in fact had many Men leaving me comments, it’s great 🙂

      It’s heart warming to know that you value what a Woman wears and that it essential for us ladies to feel good and have confidence regardless of age.

      Just goes to show that it’s not about age as you rightly pointed out that one of comments has be written by a very glamorous young 80 year old, I think it fantastic that she takes pride in her appearance, Lula could teach all the young girls on how to stay on trend 🙂

      If you need any advice on making any gift purchases or need something special for a loved one then please I would love to hear from you Everton.

      Enjoy your week.

      All the best


  3. Hello June
    Thanks for sharing your review on Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow pencil.Eyes are a sensitive and delicate part when it comes to beauty products and I do say to myself “only the best is good enough” when it come to face and eye makeup.
    Now this looks like one really good product, im never one to hoard beauty products and I do a good spring clean on what`s been left over, so while looking for inspirations on makeup, this page came up.
    Now, this seems to be a good product, and the price is just right.Now you mentioned you paid £19 at net a potter, does it mean they ship internationally?
    Will have to agree with you that with beauty products, you get what you pay for, quality cost a bit more.Ok maybe teen girls can get away with cheap makeup, but I realize that as I get older, my face need better quality makeup that I don’t have to retouch several times and the eyeTilbury shadow seem like the right choice as im going on vacation soon so I dont want to keep on topping up or correcting my makeup.

    1. Hi Roamy,

      Lovely to hear from you, you are clearly a very professional lady that knows a thing or two about Beauty and Makeup 🙂

      I am with you, I hate having old and tired makeup to deal with and would much rather use a good quality product that has staying power with the luxury you would expect from great branding, clever ingredients, unique shades to choose from that compliment eyes and skin tone beautifully and let’s face it the packaging it always a fab head turner. are amazing with International deliver as an option, they do have amazing deals from time to time even have free deliver for both UK and International, worth looking out for or even registering with them to keep up-to-date with any promotions they have on offer. I have used them many times to send gifts to Australia, they never disappoint, arrive beautifully packaged too, I am all about that service.

      I completely agree with you Roamy, the older we get we do need great products on our skin otherwise it can just look too tacky with shades and tones that do not compliment.

      This makeup set will be perfect for vacation, I love a little bit of glam on holiday, don’t we all!

      I hope that I have covered your questions, great to connect and let me know if you do decide to make a purchase with Net-A-Porter, would love to hear what you think.

      Have a lovely weekend.


  4. I have just turned eighty and I am not ready to give up makeup yet, but it is true that eye makeup is harder to apply and tends to migrate into all your little wrinkles. I have not tried any eye pencils for years because they used to drag on my eyelid. This one sounds like it might be a winner though. I like the fact that it is waterproof and long lasting. Mine always seems to fade in a couple of hours. And the colors are beautiful.I will definitley be trying this. Thanks for a great review.

    1. Hi Lula,

      I hope that I am lucky enough to still be around in my Eighties and sound as bright and switched on as you 🙂

      Really appreciate you taking the time to let me know that my review has helped you to look into applying eye pencil or liners again.

      I cannot recommend the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Eye Shadow Pencil enough, it really is easy to use, it stays put all day too. I’m with you in that it’s hard to find a makeup product for the more mature lady that doesn’t end up all around the eye looking smudged and yet gentle enough so not to drag our delicate skin.

      If you look on they give you a guide on the best shade to use for your eye colour.

      I would love to see a photo of how glam you look.

      It’s a pleasure to reply, happy shopping and have a great week.

      All the best


  5. This looks like a good eye pencil. It looks like it would go on easily and cover well. I usually like to use a very light or white color though. Because my eyes are more deep set and I don’t have as much eyelid as I used to. The lighter colors look better on me. Do they have lighter color? What is the color for blue eyes. My eyes are blue. Thanks for a good review.


    1. Hi Jeannie,

      Great to meet you, you certainly look like a lady that knows a thing or two about style, looking very glamorous 🙂

      Really appreciate you taking the time to leave me a lovely comment along with your questions.

      I have had a look for you and hopefully found the perfect colour choice in the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon range, “Champagne Diamonds for Blue Eyes” just follow this link it will show you the exact product at:

      Please let me know how you get on or if I can be of any further assistance.

      All the best


  6. Thanks for your post on the eye shadow stick. Very interesting concept, and I have never seen that before. I am going to have to pick one up, I love to play with my make up and change things up from time to time. Thanks for sharing so many cool things are your site. I always enjoy looking around.
    Take Care, Heather

    1. Hi Heather,

      A pleasure to meet you and thanks for the great feedback 🙂

      I really do think that the eye shadow sticks are the way forward regarding eye makeup, the are so easy to use, time saving and give such a dramatic effect instantly.

      Lovely of you to take a look around my site, I started it to help give my advice and professional experience as a Beauty Therapist enabling women of a certain age to get back their confidence or to merely give some extra tuition to an existing makeup and skincare routine. Although looking at your profile image you are far too young for my age bracket:)

      I would take a look at the Charlotte Tilbury makeup range, they are wonderful products to use.

      Take a peek at the photos do demonstrate a true to life shade.

      Let me know how you get on.

      all the best


  7. Hi June,

    I really enjoyed your post about the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon eye pencil. My mom always asks me to do her makeup for parties and events. I never know what colors to use on her and the fact that she hates dark eye liner makes it all the more difficult. This eye pencil is definitely going to be a game changer!



    1. Hi Lindsey,

      Great to connect and pleased that my review has made a “game changer” for you 😉

      It’s difficult to help others with their makeup especially as the texture & appearance of the skin changes. The Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon is a very clever & forgiving makeup product to use, really does enhance eye Colour & smoothing over the eye lid without dragging the delicate skin.

      I would definitely take a peek at the other shades on offer, there are plenty to choose from, Champagne Diamonds would be great to open up the appearance of the eye and make the eyes sparkle.

      Let me know if I can be happy of any further assistance 🙂

  8. I’m excited about this review since I like to try new makeup products. I never used Net-a-porter but have seen they’re products online. I’m strongly going to give it a try now after reading your review. Do you have a favorite color that you like to use? thanks for sharing

    1. Hi Karlene,

      Lovely to meet you & thanks for your great comment 🙂 are a fabulous online designer company to order from, I love their Beauty, good range of products to choose from, I would take time to read the Editor’s notes & product description, all helps to make the right purchase selection.

      The Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon come in the Bronzed Garnet as per my review & my favourite or Dark Pearl for Brown eyes, Black Diamonds for Blue eyes, Golden Quartz for Hazel eyes, Smokey Enerald for Hazel eyes, Champagne Diamonds for Blue eyes, Amber Haze for Brown eyes, Amethyst for Green eyes, the shades are all demonstrated.

      I hope this helps but recommend that you take a peek 🙂

  9. I am woman in my mid-fifties and rarely wear any eye makeup because I’ve found that it tends to smear as I’ve aged. The raccoon look is most definitely not for me! The Colour Chameleon eye pencil in the bronzed garnet shade sounds worth trying since I also have green eyes. I’ve never used Net-a-Porter but I’ve seen their advertisements. Do you happen to know if they ship to the US? Also, have you experienced any smearing with the eye pencil?

    1. Hi Lynn,

      Great to connect with you and really appreciate the positive feedback 🙂

      You will love the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon eye pencil, it really does make a difference, brings out the natural shade of your eye colour and no smearing, I have worn it from day to evening, it is incredibly long lasting and waterproof.

      Net a Porter do ship to the US costing £30 GBP & you could see the price of the product come down, usually all taxes are within the delivery cost, that’s what I have found whilst shipping to Australia, we have family there, to be honest in many cases the cost of delivery plus the product can work out cheaper from the UK.

      Let me know how you get on and please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of any further assistance.
