When Sculpted by Aimee released their Liquid Lights and they were compared to the Charlotte Tilbury wands by various instagrammers and bloggers, I jumped on them, and I have been so impressed with them.
I have wanted to try the CT wands for a while, but at €35 / £29, I wasn’t willing to splash out on them and I also hate sponge applicators, which they have, and that also put me off buying or trying them. Having never tried Charlotte Tilbury’s wands, I obviously cannot compare both products, but Siobhán has a great post here, which is worth checking out if you want a comparison post and swatches.
Having dry skin, I love cream products, I find they work well for me and can look better on my skin, although powder products work well too, but cream products do sometimes look (and work) better.
Having never tried Aimee’s base products before (makeup wise, anyway), I had high expectations as I have only ever heard great things about her products, particularly her glowy base/primer and her foundations. I was pleasantly surprised by how creamy these are. For some reason I had expected them to be more of a gel texture, I’m not sure why, but they are very creamy and comfortable on the skin.
They apply beautifully and blend out seamlessly and look gorgeous on the skin, glowy, but not greasy. They’re quite pigmented, a little goes a long way. They give a gorgeous colour, but can be built up or sheered out. They don’t settle into my pores or accentuate any texture, lines or dryness, they are quite smooth on the skin.
The highlighter is beautiful on the brow bone and inner corner, as well as on the cheekbones. I like that they can be sheered out or built up, as sometimes I may not want to wear blush and might just want a sheer layer of highlight, and with this, I can get that. A gorgeous subtle glow.
With the blush being named ‘Pink Light’, I had expected it to be more pink in colour, although it’s not. It’s more of a Rose Gold colour I would say, at least, it pulls that way on me. There is no shimmer or glitter in either of them, which I like. They do set very slighty on my skin, but that’s because of how dry my skin is, they literally sink in and look quite natural.
At present, there is only one shade in each, and I would love to see more, particularly a peach or coral shade, as they’re my favourite shades of blush. I’d also like them to be sold individually at some point as I think that’d be great for those who maybe don’t wear highlighter but would like to try the blush.
I really like the packaging, the tube is very handy and it’s more hygenic too. It’s very easy to just squeeze the right amount, although I did squeeze out too much the first time by squeezing too hard, so be careful and don’t do what I did! I’m glad they don’t have the sponge applicator, I personally cannot stand them, I find them so unhygenic and they always seem to clog full of product and as a result, a lot of product is wasted.
They are priced at €24, which is a good price I think, and if you order from Roches Chemist (where I bought mine), there are some discount codes available. Anita from Adorn.ie has a code to get 20% off and free delivery (which I used), so I paid €19.20 for them.
Have you tried these? Are you interested in trying them?
Thank you for reading, until next time, take care xx
