I’m going to put this out there right at the beginning of this post – the Charlotte Tilbury Stars In Your Eyes palette is their best palette to date … it is perfection. Big words I know, and coming from the biggest CT fan who has every single eyeshadow, you know that choosing my favourite products can be difficult for me. This was love at first sight and I have been blown away by the quality of this palette.
Normally when Charlotte produces a palette, it’s a 4 shade affair, but after the amazing success of last year’s Instant Eye Palette, she’s back with another 12 shade palette. I adore it when she does this larger palettes as I feel that I can be that bit more creative with my look. I love her Luxury Eye Palettes, but sometimes I want to use more than 4 shades, so these are ideal for me.
How Much Is It?
Now there’s a bit of an elephant in the room and that is the price. At £60.00, this is not cheap, but it’s worth it and actually great value for Charlotte Tilbury products. The 4 shade palettes are £39.00, so to get 12 shades for £60.00 seems great to me. I understand that not everyone will want to pay such a high price, but I really do believe it’s a fair price for the palette. You’re paying for the name admittedly, but you’re also paying for stunning shades and amazing quality.
Ok, so I was sent this to review, but I did buy the Instant Eye Palette and I paid for the majority of the Luxury Eye Palettes in my collection, so I feel like I can have a fair opinion when it comes to the pricing. We all know that I adore Charlotte Tilbury and would probably pay just about any price, but don’t be put off by the price tag … it really is worth every single penny.
The Charlotte Tilbury Stars In Your Eyes palette is limited edition, so grab it quick. Housed in dark red glittery hard plastic, there is a good size mirror, and it looks very very pretty. There are 12 new shades that have been divided into 4 quick and easy looks, each with it’s own colour scheme and meaning. The looks have been designed to inspire Love, Power, Happiness and Confidence.
There are 3 shades in each look and each look contains a PRIME shade, an ENHANCE shade and a SMOKE shade. These are great if you’re a bit unsure when it comes to eyeshadow or if you’re in a rush, or after a particular look. Whilst the palette is divided into these looks, each shade in the palette is complimentary so you can work your way across the whole palette and mix and match (this is what I did in the look you’ll see at the end of this post).
3 rose quartz inspired shades with soft pink hues to reflect the stone of unconditional love
3 golden shades for a glimmering, molten, mesmeric eye look to take on the world.
3 sun-lit amber shades inspired by one of the world’s most coveted treasures.
3 topaz-ruby inspired shades symbolising fire, heat and purity to empower the wearer.
What Is The Quality Like?
It’s not just the gorgeous shades that has me saying that this is the best Charlotte Tilbury palette so far, but the quality as well. The shades are beautifully pigmented and are buttery soft and smooth. They literally glide on like a dream. The colour-payoff is perfect and I like that you can build the shadows up if you want a really intense look. Out of all the Charlotte Tilbury shadows that I own, these blend the easiest and it is an absolute pleasure to use.
Please remember that I am a makeup enthusiast and not a makeup artist, so I’m never going to create the most amazing look ever, but I’m more than happy with what I created.
The Charlotte Tilbury Stars In Your Eyes palette is available now on the CT website and also at CT counters. Remember, this is limited edition and once it has sold out that’s it.
