Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette
There’s a new Charlotte Tilbury palette in the works – heading our way in August. It’s a little bit different to your standard bar palette in that the colours are split into four suggested groups of three built to create a single eye look each. Obviously, once it’s in your hands you can do as you please but these are expertly edited groupings.
The first is Day Eye. Now, I have to say I was pretty disappointed with the first shade as an arm swatch – there is virtually no colour and it’s pressed so tightly that you can’t get much pick up. But, it did serve as a neutraliser on my eyelid before putting the other shades on. Still, I think there could have been more to this non-shade.
Next, it’s Desk Eye and there are no problems with any of the other shades going forward in terms of quality. I love the inclusion of the burned ginger colour – hugely on trend and very flattering on any colour eye.
In the swatch above, it’s Day Eye and Desk Eye. The sheens, by the way, are very light catchy.
Next up, it’s Date Eye, all ready for smoky, light-hit look.
And finally, Disco Eye. As the least likely person to go to a disco, this is my favourite trio – I love a dark sheeny lid and it’s all going on in this section. The middle shade has an olive cast.
I love the way the palette gets more and more glam as you go along – I’d easily wear all of the last six but my beauty heart belongs to that metallic olive shade in Disco Eye.
As far as I’m aware, the palette is £60 and launches online at CharlotteTilbury.com on the 10th August before going into stores and other on-line locations later in the month. There’s quite a bit of new product from CT – including I think the very best highlighter and the easiest contour products that I know of. I keep thinking I’ve seen the very best of these groups and then all of a sudden the concept is taken on even further in terms of quality. I’ll get it posted as soon as I can.
