Well look what I’ve got my hands on! The one and only Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Eyeshadow Palette! As soon as I saw this in a blog sale for £20 I snapped it up straight away – for the sake of it being lightly used, I’d much rather spend £20 than £38 new to be honest! I’ve been lusting after Charlotte Tilbury makeup for ages now, everything in the collection is so gorgeous and the shades are all so easily wearable too. The only other CT product I own is a Kissing Lipstick in Bitch Perfect – which is fabulous by the way! I’m also in love with the Look Gift Boxes, but at £165 per set I can’t see I’ll be purchasing them any time soon unfortunately! (Fingers crossed for a lottery win asap!)
Anyway, on to the palette! The Dolce Vita palette is so stunning, apart from the gorgeous rose gold metallic packaging, the shadows themselves are fabulous. Marketed as ‘A colour-coded eye shadow palette that blends seamlessly into 3 looks, taking you from DESK to DUSK to DISCO.’ The four colours included are all you need to create a variety of looks. (Check out the Charlotte Tilbury site for more info on how she creates these looks)
Top right is the ‘base’ shade, a pretty white champagne shimmer, this shadow is perfect for highlighting the inner corners of the eyes. Next is the ‘enhance’ shade, this is a beautiful warm copper shimmer – I love this shade as it’s the perfect colour to go with blue eyes! Next is the ‘pop’ shade, a gorgeous deep bronze gold that has golden glittery pigments, and lastly the ‘smoke’ shade is a dark shimmery chocolate brown.
I literally cannot fault these shadows in any way. They’re all buttery soft and have fabulous colour payoff – I thought there could possibly be some fallout with the gold shade due to the large glitter pigments, but nope, no problems there! And it is such a gorgeous colour! I’m so glad I managed to get my hands on this palette, it’s definitely going to get a lot of use!
Rather than create one massive post, my next post will be live at 7pm tonight where I’ll show you a really simple eye makeup look I’ve done with this palette.
I’d love to hear what you think? Do you own any Charlotte Tilbury makeup? xxx
