As a true makeup fan I was super excited when I saw that Charlotte Tilbury expanded her Pillow Talk collection with the Pillow Talk Instant Eye Palette! I reviewed one of her previous Instant Eye palette back in the days and it became my favorite everyday palette because it is so easy to create looks with it. Today I will create a look and swatch the palette for you so you can love it as much as I do!
After the great succes of the lip shade Pillow Talk, Charlotte Tilbury decided to dedicate a whole palette to this fabulous shade. As a former makeup artist she knows what works best for every look and it wasn’t a surprise for me when she released this palette, inspired by one of her best selling lipstick shades.
The look of the Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eyeshadow Palette in Pillow Talk is beyond beautiful as all of their other products. The palette is easy to grab because of the small grip and the rose golden signature case makes this a real collectors items. Have I told you that this palette is a limited edition? Enough reasons to order this right now.
The Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eyeshadow Palette in Pillow Talk contains 12 eyeshadows: a mix of matte, shimmer and pearly metallic finishes. All inspired by the best seller Pillow Talk. As you can see they made it easier for you. Charlotte Tilbury already arranged 4 looks for you and how to apply the 3 shades in steps. For me this is great because sometimes I get overwhelmed when I open a palette and end up applying all the shades! Now you can clearly see if you want to go for a Day, Desk, Date of Dream look.
The powders feel super smooth on the skin and have the right amount of pigmentation to make everyone gasp for air when they see you. I did need some more wipes from the red shade, but that is always something I experience with red and purple shades. The shimmers are intense and I love how they light up when the sun shines on it.
The Day look contains a more cool/lighter shades for that natural and basic makeup face. I love that the first two steps are shimmers so they create a soft finish and then a matte taupe color to accentuate the eyes.
For the Desk look we have a mix of neutral and a touch of pink. I love that there is more of a softer romantic look for a work day look, because we all must feel gorgeous even behind the desk. These shades are all matte.
The Date look is a more warm/smokey look with some great browns and cool toned tints for that sultry eye of the day. All the shades are matte.
Probably my favorite one is the Dream look with red shades. It contains two shimmers and one matte powder to create that dreamy and romanic look. You will blown everyone away with these shades!
I often use the Desk look because I work fulltime and I think these shades are just perfect for everyday but doesn’t really grabs all the attention from your office. It emphasized your whole makeup look and the warmth of the powders are just perfect for my skin tone.
The Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eyeshadow Palette in Pillow Talk powders blend beautifully on my eyelids and even tho I have oily skin, even without primer it stays very kon on my eyes. I do prefer using an eye primer, but during my morning routine I often forget to apply it.
I personally believe that this palette suits every skin tone! It is so versatile and you can create your own look instead of following the 4 that are shown inside the palette. The powders are super smooth, pigmented and blend well on the skin. Compared to other Charlotte Tilbury eye palettes I think this is worth the money as it is a limited edition. If you havent tried her famous Pillow Talk lipstick, first check that one out! Believe me, when you love the lipstick you will need this matching palette for your everyday looks!
Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eyeshadow Palette Pillow Talk is available for €75 (£60.00).
