Charlotte Tilbury | The Dolce Vita Palette

Can it get any more Autumnal than this? I think not. This is a palette I have seen and admired online since the launch of Charlotte Tilbury. But I never entertained the thought of getting it because I thought that the colours would not suit me. Like I said in a previous post, I am a cool-toned eyeshadow wearer but over the past couple of months, my tastes have changed and I am embracing the warmer tones. I was eventually pushed over the edge when I seen Karen wearing this palette on her eyes on Snapchat. That woman could make me buy anything, it looked GORGEOUS on her! So that evening I logged on to Brown Thomas and made the purchase.

When it arrived, my first thoughts were "What was I thinking?!" when I seen the colours and realised how far from my usual shade choices they were. So I sat down that evening and piled on the make-up and had a play around with the palette. I actually really like the way these colours look on me. They would 100% never have been my first choice if I was to pick them, but when I have my whole face done with lashings of mascara it actually looks really nice.

This is not the first eyeshadow palette from Charlotte Tilbury I've tried, and the quality is fairly consistent throughout the palettes. The shadows are nicely pigmented and easy to work with. The glitter is not as pigmented as it looks in the pan but I have mixed it in with my Inglot Duraline and it really intensifies the glitter, I can't wait to use it at Christmas!I think I am going to get so much wear out of this palette over the colder months, and since buying it, I have really become obsessed with all things Charlotte Tilbury and just want everything in my life!
