Sunday Stash Shopping #109: Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette

This has been sitting in my draft forever. I wanted to do 4 different complete looks, but you know what? I got lazy. LOL! And it also made me realize I didn’t actually like this palette all that much. If I did, then it wouldn’t be that difficult to take a few photos. I’d rather use other palettes, so that speaks volume. That’s really too bad considering the price of this palette.

I reviewed this palette a while back, so if you’re interested to read what I think, click here. For this look, I used Desk Eye. The trio eye shadow is quite easy to use even though it’s really warm. I paired it with a pink blush and rosy lips.

 

 

Here’s a close up of how I did the eyes. I used the mid toned brown all over my lid and dabbed some shimmer on top. Using the darkest shade of the 3, I smudged my lower lash line. I also used a brown liquid liner and black mascara to finish off this look.

 

 

Here is how I’d wear the 3 other trios. I think Day Eye is too sheer on me, as it just wouldn’t really show on my eyes. I could still wear it, just to slightly brighten my lids for a bold lip, probably. Date Eye is a cooler version of Desk Eye and Disco Eye is the most fun. The shimmers are actually quite pretty, but they don’t show very well in these photos. I’m just not that good a photographer, sorry 🙂

 

 

I still think this palette is quite versatile, and it’s great for those who don’t know how to use a big palette. However, I think the price is too steep for the quality we’re getting. You’re better off with a basic Urban Decay palette, or some fun Anastasia Beverly Hills palette, or even a neutral Bobbi Brown palette. All more affordable and more accessible than this. It’s actually quite disappointing because I really liked her Dolce Vita quad. Oh well…

Have a great weekend guys!
