This little gem came out some time ago, but as Glamour Pants was shut down over the summer I didn’t have chance to talk about it. I was so excited when Charlotte Tilbury released this palette, a quick, easy, all you need palette. Now I am all about products that are going to save me some time when I’m getting ready, if it’s multipurpose, I want it. So I just want to do a quick little review to talk about whether this palette is well deserving of the hype it has received.
The palette itself is a great size. It’s big enough that you’re getting a good amount of product but is small enough to fit into your handbag, or suitcase without taking up too much room. It cost £49 from Charlotte Tilbury and contains 3 eyeshadows, two blushers, a bronzer and a highlighter.
- Brighten – a pale pink matt eyeshadow
- Enhance – a shimmery warm champagne eyeshadow
- Smoke – a medium chestnut brown eyeshadow
- Face Bronze – a sheer light to medium bronzer with a slight shimmer
- Cheek Swish – a light pink peach matte blusher
- Cheek Pop – a light babydoll pink blusher with slight shimmer
- Face Highlight – a shimmery pale champagne highlighter
The look that this product seems to be to be going for is a simplistic everyday fresh face. An easy everyday eye look can be achieved by contouring the eyes a little bit with the shade Smoke, and brightened up by using both (or one of) the shades Brighten, and Enhance. Very easy to do, and still looks very pulled together like you’ve spent a long time perfecting your makeup. If you’re feeling extra cheeky, and don’t fancy using a chestnut/taupe shade (the smoke) you could always use the Swish blusher as a crease shade to create a feminine pink look.
The quality of the products in this palette are great, as are all of Charlotte Tilburys products. They show up pretty well on my skin, one of the few times being extremely pale comes in handy. However, I did notice that a couple of the shades were a little sheerer than I would have liked. In particular ‘Face Bronze’. But I think the purpose of this palette is a fast glowy look, and not particularly a look for a night on the town.
For £49 this is a steal, and I am definitely glad I got my hands on it. All in all I do adore this palette, I use it quite sparingly. Not because I don’t love it, I just have to keep my palettes on rotation, otherwise the others get jealous. One final note would be that I do think this palette is more suited for people with fairer skin (such as myself). I know of a few bloggers who have written about this product and said it didn’t look good with their tan, and left them looking powdery and a little clownish, but thanks to the crappy English weather that’s not a problem for me!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this quick little review, let me know in the comments what you thought of this palette if you managed to snap one up!
