Charlotte Tilbury is one brand, which products I’ve been dying to try and I’ve finally got my hands on one of their product. While I was in London for my birthday I was browsing through all the beautiful products in Selfridges and eventually decided to purchase the Dolce Vita palette, as I loved the design of it and the colors it offered.
The packaging is in this beautiful brownish dark red maroon kind of shade with golden details, which makes it look so luxurious. Additionally it comes in a nice size as it is not too big and pretty much fits into every make up bag. Perfect for traveling or when you’re on the go! The palettes itself contains four beautiful shades.
First you get a very shimmery warm slightly peachy golden highlighter, which is the perfect shade to highlight along your brow bone. Next you get a gorgeous shimmery maroon kind of color, which I like so use along the outer sides of my lid. In shade in the bottom row on the left is more kind of a glitter than an actual eyeshadow. Basically it’s a golden glitter, which you can apply on top of any other shade to add a bit of sparkle, and who doesn’t love sparkle? Lastly the palette also includes a brown, which seems to have a bit of an olive undertone to me and just like the other shade it has a bit of a gold shimmer to it as well. Needless to say all four shades are absolutely stunning and the combination you have with this palette definitely lets you create a variety of different looks, which makes it very versatile.
Now on to the formula. All four shades are very nicely pigmented, which is always one of the most important things for me! They are really soft and buttery, which makes the application very simple and most importantly even. Another great thing is that they blend effortlessly! Whenever I do my eye makeup I usually use some kind of cream eyeshadow base as a sort of primer to make my eyeshadow pop more and for it to stay on longer. Now I haven’t tried these eyeshadows without a base or primer but with one they definitely last for hours and I don’t have to worry about reapplying!
Basically I’m in love with this palette! After hearing such great things about Charlotte Tilbury make up I’ve had quite high expectations but they were definitely met. This palette offers you some beautiful shades with which you can create everything from a neutral every day look to a sparkly evening look. What more could you want?
Have you tried any Charlotte Tilbury make up? What should I try next?
