The Charlotte Tilbury Beauty line is not new to me. When it first launched at Selfridges in London, I had a friend kind enough to pick up this palette for me… along with a few more items.

Charlotte Tilbury is the makeup artist of oh, so many! celebrities and the one behind the glamorous red lip and black liner iconic Kate Moss look. She is the feline flick – cat eye – ’70s Brigitte Bardot inspired sultry makeup look queen. She is a beautiful woman with an amazing personality! And her calling everyone “darling” with that gorgeous British accent… Ah! Just makes me love her even more!

Her makeup and skincare range of products is getting wider and wider, and with her #MakeupRevolution finally crossing the ocean on the 2nd of September ( you, lucky beautiful ones! ), I thought that it would have been just about the right time to review one of my favourite makeup items I got this year.

This is Charlotte Tilbury‘s The Sophisticate Luxury Palette Colour-Coded Eye Shadows!

It comes with four neutral matte shades centered around earthy tones of chocolate, taupe and tan, with a cream-in-powder texture that is enriched with natural oils and silicon-treated pearls. Each colour blends effortless and seamlessly, giving away the most amazing pigmentation and a true-to-colour application on the eye lid, which will make you look naturally polished and effortlessly chic, and glamorous at the same time.

The harmonious mix of colours offer a complete “desk to disco eye colour wardrobe” which makes it so easy to use. You can go for a day time, soft neutral look, very much work appropriate which I did when I was in Milan, but you can also put a bit more effort into it and create a gorgeous eye makeup for a night out drinking an “apperitivo”!

Inside the palette you will find a very nice light cream, a flesh-tone option to use as an all-over the lid base ( I love this one, I wish it had been a bit more pigmented though! ), a soft neutral tan brown which makes a good transitional colour as well as an all-over the lid base, a darker chocolate brown with slight red undertones, and the last one is a smokey-grey, with brown undertones – a beautiful taupe colour great for a smokey eye.

The packaging gives away a retro vibe ( I totally adore that, especially on her lipsticks! ) and I absolutely love the reddish-brown and the rose-gold details together. Sleek and dainty, it closes with that satisfactory high end makeup clasp! You know what I am saying, right?!

The philosophy behind the Charlotte Tilbury brand can be easily resumed to this simple declaration: “It is my artistry made effortless!” And yes, you are sophisticate enough to wear Charlotte Tilbury’s makeup effortlessly, just the way she stated even if you are not a makeup artist!

See you soon, beautiful!
