Makeup Product Review | Charlotte Tilbury Instant Palette
So my obsession with Charlotte Tilbury makeup continues in this blog with a product review of the Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look Palette –spoiler, I love it. This product was out a while ago as a limited edition and sold out pretty quickly, so I missed out the first time. But now it’s back as an online exclusive and I didn’t want to miss out again! There are 2 different options, Natural Beauty or Seductive Beauty. I choose the natural beauty, with the hope with would be good for everyday makeup.
The palette comes in a sturdy purple case with a mirror on the inside. It’s not the same beaut rose gold that some of her other packaging is, but it’s simple, elegant and built to last. There are 7 pans, 3 for your eyes, 2 for your blush and a highlight and contour. As with all Charlotte Tilbury powdered blushes there are 2 shades. One is to cover your whole cheek and the other is just to be applied to the apples of the cheeks. Then there are 3 eye shadows one to brighten, one to enhance and one to smoke.
My Product Review
I already love the ‘Filmstar Bronze and Glow’ palette so I knew I would love these in this palette too. The star products for me are the blushes. They are perfect for everyday and seem to go with so many skin tones. They aren’t too pink or peach so go with everything. They last well and apply nicely. The only thing I’m not convinced about are the eyeshadows. I don’t tend to wear much eyeshadow in my everyday makeup, so it could just be that. I feel they are really subtle, with not a great colour pay off, so you can’t really build them up too much. Saying that, I like that I could take this one palette along with some lipstick and concealer and I would have all I needed to touch up in a day.
Is it worth it?
So the palette retails at £49, which I would say is an investment however you get a lot of product for buck. You get roughly half of the amount of product that you do from the filmstar bronze and glow palette, if not more, which is the same price. So along with the blush and shadows it is definitely cheaper than buying them each individually.
So, I’ve now used it a few times, experimenting with the eye shadows and they are growing on me but I still prefer the cheek products.
Anyone tried it? I would love to hear what you think.
