Charlotte Tilbury | The Sophisticate

  *Insert heart-eyed emoji here* May I introduce to you the new love of my life. Charlotte Tilbury is a brand that I have been following since it came out and I have fallen in love with many pieces from the collection. But since it is on the higher end of the price scale I have resisted the urge to treat myself too much. I did have one particular palette on my wishlist. Matte, cool-toned and beautiful..it is the Sophisticate palette. This was the stand out palette from the collection for me because it is just right up my street. The other palettes are beautiful but I knew I wouldn't realistically get the use out of them, and this one just seemed perfect for me! 

My boyfriend very generously treated me to the palette as part of my Christmas present and as soon as I seen it, it was love. To get the obvious out of the way, it is the most beautiful packaging on a product that I own. It looks and feels so luxurious with the gold embossing, and looks really nice in your make-up bag! (I still put it back into the original little box after every use though, anyone else do that?

The eyeshadows themselves are like nothing I have ever tried before. They are so soft and buttery, so they are so easy to work with. They blend like a dream but be aware that they are also ridiculously pigmented so a light hand is all you need! I have created both day-time and night-time looks with this palette so I can see it becoming my new staple palette that I use on a day to day basis. The top two shades are perfect for an everyday, natural look and then you can add a touch of one of the bottom two shades to deepen up the look or to add some definition at the lash-line.

You can expect to see this appearing in next months monthly favourites- I realise it is only the beginning of January but that is just how much I love this! Let me know if you have any recommendations from Charlotte Tilbury that you think I should try, I have my eye on the Bronze & Glow palette next!
