About the Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette from the Charlotte Tilbury website, “The power to mesmerize is in your eyes, with this make-up hypnotize… I have decoded the secrets to iconic, mesmerizing eyes with my Colour-Coded Eyeshadow Palettes. Each one contains four harmonious color ways that offer a complete ‘desk to disco’ eye color wardrobe and an easy to use application ritual that is fail-safe to follow. It’s my artistry made effortless!” There are various shades of this luxury palette which are based on your choice and the color of your eyes. All the colors in the palette are selected so carefully that they blend so well with each other making the whole experience a luxury.
In this palette, the ‘prime’ shade appears as a standard base and a highlight shade on my medium tan skin tone. The ‘enhance’ shade (top right) is a beautiful gray which does not makes my eyes look dull. It is on the earthy taupe side without leaning brown. The ‘smoke’ shade is a deeper gray but it melts beautifully with the other light gray shade. I like the gradient quality of this palette and the shades do compliment each other very well.
The ‘pop’ shade is Charlotte Tilbury’s silver glitter pan. I usually do not use glitter eyeshadows but prefer more shimmery and wet kind of shades on my eyelids but I am liking this one, although I use it occasionally during weekends or evenings due to a conservative office environment during my office hours in the day. It does not sparkle on me when it is dry but it does give a beautiful intense sparkle finish when wet or under the bright lighting. This ‘pop’ pan is meant for evenings.
I am really happy with this palette as it allows me to create a very classic look for the office and it doesn’t have to be the party look every time. I always start at what Charlotte Tilbury calls the ‘Desk’ look and rarely make it to ‘Disco’. My eyelids are oily and I prefer using a base primer before applying any eyeshadow. This holds up quite well all day for 7 hours When I am not using the pop pan as the glitter in pop pan tends to come down to my cheeks after 3-4 hours of wear.
About the packaging of this palette, it is a beautiful oxblood plastic compact with a shiny rose gold interior. It has a mirror and it’s lightweight, convenient and travels friendly. The product in the palette has given no irritation to my eyes or whatsoever and they blend very well. The fallout is very minimal except for the glitter pan.
Overall, this palette, as other Charlotte Tilbury palette’s is quite versatile and a good option for a very classic as well as trendy smokey eye look. The palette retails for $66 CAD means $16.5 CAD for each shade, which makes sense. This can be bought online from Charlotte Tilbury website. Next on my wishlist is the Dolce Vita palette from Charlotte Tilbury which has been loved by fans around the world.
