Today is part 2 of 4 posts featuring the Charlotte Tilbury Eye Colour Magic Collection eyeshadow quads.
This week features Green Lights, a palette made to enhance green and hazel eyes.
This palette is different from the other three palettes in this collection because it isn’t totally new – it appears to be a re-launch of Charlotte Tilbury’s The Rebel eyeshadow quad (but I could be wrong as I do not have The Rebel palette in my hands to do a straight comparison). It is also the only one to not have a matte shade.
It comes in the traditional Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow quad packaging which makes for an easy storage situation for my growing Charlotte Tilbury quad collection.
The palette contains 4 metallic and shimmery shadows in the gold and khaki family.
Because this palette does not have any matte shades, I used the Smoke shade as a transition colour which was a bit messy and hard to control. It made for a somewhat muddy look, but that’s because the shadow has gold glitter in it, and glitter is a bit unpredictable. The bottom 2 shades both have glitter which made for some fallout – it was tricky to clean up with scotch tape because the glitters are fine (but where tape fails, extra concealer succeeds). The top 2 shades are metallic and really made this look come together. They were pigmented, had presence and were easy to work with.
Because I liked 2 of the shades and had a hard time with the other 2 shades, this palette wouldn’t an A+ from me. I’ll probably use the top 2 metallic shades in future looks, but I can’t see myself using the bottom 2 shades – I think they would be nice lid colours, however, not for my particular skin tone because the colours are a bit too stark for my liking.
Onto the next Eye Colour Magic palette!
