Pretty In Pink: The Charlotte Tilbury Eye Quad

Wednesday, October 07, 2020


 
Charlotte Tilbury's Luxury palettes are exactly that - a luxurious package of four gorgeous complimenting eye shadows. They have now been expanded into a variety of shades, from golds, purples, or even green tones, something to suit every eye colour and skin tone. There's also a range of finishes too; some palettes include four very festive shimmery shades, while some have four mattes, and some are somewhere in between.
 
I had become a little bored of the huge, everything-you-could-ever-need eyeshadow palettes, and fancied something a little smaller and prettier in my makeup bag instead. After looking at eye quads from different brands, it is little wonder that I instantly fell in love with Charlotte Tilbury's palette range. The burgundy and rose gold packaging is stunning, and every shade combination offered something different.
 

After much deliberation, I settled on the Pillow Talk palette. Charlotte Tilbury's 'Pillow Talk' range is her best-seller,  so popular that one 'Pillow Talk' product is sold every three minutes! Starting with one gorgeous, cult-favourite lipstick, the collection has grown and includes blush, mascara, eyeliner, and of course an eyeshadow palette. The range is inspired by soft rosy-pink hues, which make up this palette.
 
As mentioned, as a quad the palette features four shades. This one has two shimmers and two mattes, which makes it perfect to create a look with this palette alone, you have everything you need! 
Unfortunately, the shades don't have names, which I may have expected from a luxury brand, but because there's only four it's very easy to differentiate.
 

The shade in the top left is a really pretty champagne-pink shimmer, a very classic and wearable shade. I consider this the highlighting shade of the palette and use it in the inner corner of the eyelid. It's not an 'in your face' shimmer, more of a satin finish which makes it really easy to blend out.

On the top right is our first matte of the two. It is a blush, rosy pink that I blend into the crease with a fluffy brush to begin a look. I am all about rosy shades like this right now so I really can't get enough of it. It's quite a light and neutral shade, for a classic everyday look this could be blended all over the lid for a really pretty rosy tint.

Underneath that one is the second matte. This is a pink with more of a dusky brown tone, perfect for adding depth to the eye. It might be my favourite out of the four, it's very pigmented and easy to blend and I simply love this sort of shade, it's really pretty in the outer corner of the eye.

The fourth and final shade in the palette is a rose gold shimmer - this one is very sparkly and effective placed all over the lid with a little flat brush. This shade really makes your eye pop! It's much more glittery than the other shimmer shade in the palette, you can tell the difference between their two finishes, and how the one above it is definitely more of a satin.
 

The four shades compliment each other so well and work perfectly together to create a classic eye look, which can be taken from day to night with the addition of a bit more of the shimmer and darker matte, to add depth. All of the shades are very pigmented - they are really a dream formula! I also found the shades very long-lasting, as long as I used an eye primer, they're good to go the entire day.

The palette retails at £40, which is rather pricey as this evens out at £10 a shade. Thinking about the fact that you get triple the amount of shades in an Urban Decay or Too Faced palette for a very similar price point, is it worth it? For a treat, I would say so - it is the perfect travel palette that looks and feels very luxurious. It is a special item to have in your collection, and all of the four shades are super wearable. If you're often overwhelmed by a bigger palette, or feel like you won't get the use out of all the shades, this is definitely suitable for you.
 

Have you ever tried Charlotte Tilbury's eyeshadows before? I have been won over by this palette and now I am eyeing up which one I want to try next - the orange toned Desert Haze is calling my name!

Purchase the Pillow Talk palette at Selfridges or John Lewis
