Ready for a little luxury? Today I’m talking about a palette that I featured in my Glitz and Glam Gift Guide.
This is the Charlotte Tilbury Stars in Your Eyes Palette.
The palette is housed in a sparkly burgundy case with a magnetic closure.
When you open the palette you see a reflective gold base, a full mirror and a mix of matte, metallic and ultra-shimmery shadows.
The 12 shadows are divided into four trios: Love Eyes, Power Eyes, Happy Eyes and Confident Eyes. Since the palette is divided into four looks, I have divide the swatches and looks the same way.
I am obsessed with this palette! This has to be the best Charlotte Tilbury product I’ve ever tried. The eyeshadows are lovely – they’re pigmented to perfection, have depth, blend absolutely wonderfully and come in a variety of shades and finishes. My favourite look is definitely “Confident Eyes” – not because I love the purple (don’t get me wrong, I do), but the shimmery light pink shadow (left in the trio) is STUNNING. I’ve never seen anything like it – it has this beautiful glistening effect that looks like that sparkly Instagram filter that makes your photo twinkle. When I first saw this shadow applied with the fingertip on Charlotte Tilbury’s Instagram, I thought it was super edited with that filter, but the shadow *actually* looks like that in person! The photos do it justice.
One thing to note when using this palette is that the shimmers do have fallout. Not fallout of pigment, but fallout of the superfine glitters, which is hard to remove, even using the scotch tape method. I would recommend putting on undereye shields when doing your look if you plan to use the shimmer shades.
I would absolutely, without a doubt recommend this palette. I la-la-love it!
