If you are looking for ultra smooth, pigmented and long wearing eyeshadow crayons, the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon eye pencils have got you covered. There are 8 colours to choose from and Charlotte has given her recommendations as to which colours you should pick to suit your eye colour and which to use for day or night.
These recommendations are prescriptive, not restrictive. I myself don't necessarily abide by rules on matching eyeshadows to eye colours. If its brown, gold or neutral, like a moth to a flame or a magpie to shiny things, I gravitate to it. Here I've picked out Bronzed Garnet.

Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon in Bronzed Garnet is a reddish brown with flecks of fine bronze shimmer.
Application of these can be a little bit tricky. You only have about a 30-second window before it sets, and once it does, it is virtually un-blendable, untouchable, un-smudgeable. I suggest applying the eyeshadow one eye at a time and follow through with your eyeshadow blending brush or a small angled brush for extra definition if you wanted to add a winged flick.
The Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleons are chubby sticks with blunt tips as opposed to the conventional thin eye pencils. These require sharpening and you inevitably waste some product to the sharpener, although I don't know of anyone who actually finishes most of their eye pencils, I have probably only finished 1-2 in my lifetime!
Despite the long-wearing power, removing these is easy. I use my micellar cleansing waters - Garnier or Bioderma and easily they wipe off.
Overall I'm impressed by this eyeshadow stick and I look forward to purchasing another. I've got my sights set on Dark Pearl and Amber Haze. Have you picked up any of the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon eye pencils?
