Charlotte Tilbury THE SOPHISTICATE Luxury Eyeshadow Palette review

Charlotte Tilbury THE SOPHISTICATE Luxury Eyeshadow Palette review

As promised, here’s a full review of the eyeshadow palette that made yesterday’s look possible. THE SOPHISTICATE Luxury Palette ($64 CAD) is one of 10 eyeshadow looks in Charlotte Tilbury’s line.

These colour-coded palettes offer a complete look, from “desk to disco”, and work harmoniously together.

Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Eyeshadow Palette The Sophisticate review 2

THE SOPHISTICATE is the more neutral of all 10. It has the least amount of sparkle and shimmer and for me will get the most amount of use. The packaging is extremely high quality with rose gold accents and an adorable etched star on the mirror.

The formula has a slight shimmer but is buttery as can be and highly blendable. Each shade has a specific purpose, as demonstrated below:

The Sophisticate You start with the prime shade, then enhance the crease, smoke it out and add a pop of colour on the lid.

This adds beautiful soft warm definition to the crease and lid without being too bold. On my skin, which is starting to get crepe-y in the lid area, this just glides over it and actually blurs any imperfections.

night eye 4

For night, I just add the bottom row of shades, using the Smoke colour in the outer V, into the crease and on the upper and lower lashline. Then I pat the Pop shade on the lid.

These are not too sheer OR too bold, they are just soft and simple to work with. There is a slight luminosity to the formula without it being shimmer.

Using all four shades really brings out the slight blue tint in my eyes. It opens up the eye area and really draws focus.

You can grab this palette online or at Holt’s on Bloor in Toronto now (or Holt’s Vancouver starting July 6).

Don’t forget, Charlotte herself will be at Holt’s Bloor TODAY for a meet and greet!
