Previously, I reviewed the palettes in Copper Charge, Mesmerising Maroon and Green Lights, and today I’m sharing Super Blue.

Blue shadows are the most intimidating eyeshadows for me. I feel like they don’t look good with my extremely fair complexion, so I tend to stay away from them. This quad, in particular, is from the dark and metallic blue family, which makes it even trickier for me to pull off, but I’ll still give it a shot!

The Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette in Super Blue is made to enhance blue eyes and make brown eyes pop. I like the selection of formulas in this quad because it has one matte, two metallics (one with sparkles) and one shimmer – everything you need to create a complete look. It comes in the standard Tilbury burgundy quad and a special colour-coordinated box.

For the look below I attempted a halo eye, using the matte blue in the outer and inner corner (start with a light hand because it is very pigmented), the sparkly blue in the centre, the pale gold in the inner corner and the chrome brown on the lower lashline. I also went back with the Smoke shade (brown) to blend out the transition colour, but because it was metallic and not matte it ended up making the look a bit muddy. I was impressed by how the Pop shade (the sparkly blue) applied because I typically apply this formula with my fingertip for added punch, but was surprisingly able to achieve the same pigmentation when applying it with a brush. Although the Prime shade (pale gold) was a shimmer, I wish it had a more pigmented base because I needed to apply a few layers for it to show up on my inner corner as a highlight.

These shadows swatched beautifully on my arm – smooth and pigmented. The Prime shade needed a few swipes of product to really show up because it had a semi-translucent base.

I definitely think I need more practice applying blue shadows because I know there’s a way to apply them in a more clean fashion. I’d definitely recommend using a smaller blending brush depending on the amount of lid space you have to work with. I think people with deeper skin tones who gravitate towards blue looks will enjoy and get good use out of this palette. As far as my rankings for the four quads in this collection, from favourite to least favourite, I’d choose Copper Charge, Mesmerising Maroon, Super Blue and then Green Lights.
