Charlotte Tilbury did it again, making our mouths drop! The newest Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Face Palette is the newest must have of the former makeup artist and it comes alongside a handful of other new products. I think there is no collection of her that doesn’t contain a product nobody needs. My love for Charlotte Tilbury became so big that my life goal is to have literally everything from her makeup brand, but first talk about this beauty gorgeous palette!
The Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Face Palette is a must have! When you look at it, you instantly want to have it. The Glowgasm palette was launched with a few other products like the glosses and eye quad. But when it saw the Charlotte Tilbury mails coming by with these palettes, I knew I had to get one!
The Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Face Palette comes in two shades: Lightgasm and Lovegasm. I received the Lightgasm which can be used for fair to medium skin. The Lovegasm is a bit intenser than the Lightgasm but personally I think they both can be used for all skin colors, it is what you prefer to achieve with these palettes. If I could turn back time I would eventually pick the Lovegasm, I will soon tell you why.
The cover of the Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm face Palette has this angelic feeling: it has an halo around the Charlotte Tilbury logo and on the background you can see a faded picture of a women face with pastel shades around it. I think the combination of gold and the light pastel shades makes this palette look so pretty compared to their other palettes they launched (see here one of my reviews about the Charlotte Tilbury Stars in your eyes palette).
On the inside you can find 4 powders: a highlighter, multi-glow, blush and bronzer. These 4 powders will create that all over the glow face look and can uplift your whole face. Charlotte says that it will make you look swoon-worthy, like if you are born to be sexy!
The Glowgasm powders are super smooth and velvet touch: when you dip your brush into the powder, it doesn’t feel like anything is coming off the palette. When you take a closer look you can see how fine the powder is, it almost has no texture at all. That is what we need when you want to achieve that glowy look that looks like a million dollar!
On the skin it doesn’t look like you are wearing any powder, because it looks like it has melted into the skin: a glow from within. The powders are buildable and will never look chalky on the skin. In fact, I applied the bronzer 4 times to get the desired intensity and it still looked smooth. Never get afraid if your skin will look to heavy, it is not possible with the Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Face palette.
The colors are beautiful if you want to have that beautiful natural glow. My skin is a NC25 currently and I honestly think that with my makeup look and desired look the Lightgasm is a little bit too light for me. I expected it to be more kaboom, but that is maybe my expectations (never have high expectations, it will only hurt you).
Shades are still gorgeous and look very well on my warm toned skin. The powder I’m most excited about is definitely the blush powder, it has this pretty soft pretty pearly finish on my skin like it is my natural flush. It is all about achieving that natural look with the help of some glamorous products to uplift it.
Overall I really love the results, my skin looks healthy and glowy without creating that heavy makeup looks (because I used the powder literally everywhere on my face!). The shades feel amazingly soft, smooth and velvet on the skin and don’t create this chalky effect, no matter how many layers you apply! It is totally buildable, so you can build up the intensity. Each powder can be used in their own way, think out of the box. Use it as an all over the eye lid shade, mix your lipstick with it for that pearly finish or use it as an under eye setting powder.
My only consideration about this palette is that I have a medium skin and thought that Lightgasm would work for my skin, but I should have picked Lovegasm for that extra intensity in the shades. Nothing to say about the quality of the palette, just a personal thought about my own choice.
