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.
Have a lovely weekend everyone! Have you tried anything from Charlotte Tilbury?
