Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette – The Dolce Vita

Hope you’re having a great start to the weekend! I’m spending mine working unfortunately!

I bought this a couple of months ago and it’s become one of my favourites palettes to use! I used it on my birthday and a couple of other occasions, it’s very special to me!

Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette in The Dolce Vita is a bronze-gold eyeshadow quad. It has 3 satin/pearl finish shades and one glitter shade.

It’s not Lorac Pro level of pigmentation, but it’s still pretty good. They’re more pigmented when used wet but I never do. The eyeshadows are very soft and blend really well. The glitter shade is a bit different though. I find it easier to apply by just tapping it with my finger over the lid and building it up. I haven’t experienced any fallout when used this way.

  • Prime – A light champagne beige, such a great colour for inner corner highlight.
  • Enhance – It’s a reddish brown with tons of shimmer. I’ll be honest, I haven’t mastered this shade yet. I mainly use it all over the lid and the glitter shade over it. I think it’s just too red to be smoked out.
  • Smoke – Possibly my second favourite shade here. It’s a golden brown with very prominent gold shimmer. This looks so amazing in photos, I really love it. Sometimes I also wear it just by itself all over the lid.
  • Pop – The glitter shade! Isn’t it so lovely? It’s a gold bronze colour which is not chunky at all, it can be build up and looks really sparkly.

The wear time is pretty good too, they will easily last 7-8 hours but a primer always helps. Overall, I love the combination of colours! They work so well together and I think that’s one of the best things about these palettes. I was very close to buying Uptown Girl and The Rebel.

I love the packaging on the inside, rose gold is having it’s moment and this is perfection. But on the outside, it’s just so basic. It feels very plasticky and the opening is perfect for chipping your nails. I expect better for $52 (almost Rs. 3200).

Charlotte Tilbury isn’t directly available in India but you can get it from Beautylish. It’s also available on Nordstrom.

    This is a very pretty look you are wearing there. And probably the first honest review I have read after all these raves. You are the first to mention the (minor) downsides.

    It still sounds like something I would love, though.

      I do like the eyeshadows themselves which is what matters in the end. But with these prices we are paying or packaging as well, not just the name. :)

      • http://lindalibraloca.blogspot.com/ Linda Libra Loca

        Agreed.

    I also tend to use my fingertips when applying eyeshadows with glitters. Instinct? hehe. I love what you did here, Pop is the star!

      Brush + glitter makes me very uncomfortable. It’s so difficult to get rid of fallout once it spreads!

    These colors look so beautiful on you! I’ve never tried a CT eyeshadow, but I’ve been lemming The Rock Chic palette for months!

      My favourite shade as well, it’s so different from anything I own.

    So sorry to hear you’re working this weekend, although I do have something to finish tomorrow as well (le sigh. But then again, I get to spend Monday happy-go-lucky, or so I hope anyways).

    This quad is STUNNING on you! Like seriously stunning! I think it might be too warm for me, but on you it’s so, SO nice!

      I don’t mind the work as such but my blogging schedule goes it bit haywire.

      Thanks Sunny! *totally blushing*
      I’m falling in love with glitter eyeshadows again.

    Hey fellow weekend working girl. I work every weekend :-/

    The eyeshadows look perfect on you, I like that shimmer in the center of the lid. I still need to try products from Charlotte Tilbury!

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      Every weekend? Yikes!

      The shimmer completely transforms the look though, I love that I can go day to night with this look. :)

    Gorgeous palette.. I don’t think I can pull off that reddish brown one, looks lovely on you. Smoke and pop is so perfect xx

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      Not my favourite either but Smoke is great on it’s own as well.

    Love this palette, even if like you said the pigment isn’t quite up there with others there’s just something about CT products. You look stunning btw x

      With pigmentation, once it’s above a certain level I’m fine with it, it doesn’t necessarily have to be right up there with Lorac.
      Mainly I love how well the colours work together! :)

    Individually I was meh about these shades, but when I saw them swatched together and the photo of you wearing it – I was hooked! So perfectly smoky and soft which is what I am drooling over for spring.

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      I agree, at this point it’s very hard for any these neutral shades to really stand out, there are just so many options out there. But they work so well together, that’s what I love about it. I don’t have to think too much, just apply. :)

  • Emily / Hannah

    The shades are gorgeous! love the look you’ve done. The packaging is so so so so pretty. I love it x
