I was a very lucky girl this christmas as Santy brought me this Charlotte Tilbury Vintage Vamp Palette. I have lusted after CT’s shadows & products in general for quite some time. Everything looks so fancy & luxury & I want it all!!
This eyeshadow quad has two dark colours and two light. Both the dark are matte with shimmer added in (WHY!!??) I have to say , they are very close in colour. It would have been great if one of them was light enough to put in the crease as a transition. I get this is a vampy palette but when there is so little between them I feel it would have been more beneficial.
There are two lighter colours. One is perfect for lid, brow highlight , inner corner highlight etc. But the one on the bottom left is straight up glitter. I was expecting a really intense shimmery shadow but there isn’t even really a base to bind the glitter. It’s the third one across on the swatch below.
If you are looking to do a quick easy look I don’t think these are the shadows for that. I found them kind of hard to blend. So you definitely need to have a bit of time to work with them.
Having said that they pretty much last all day. A bit of creasing but that was at about the 10 hour mark so very acceptable in my opinion.
Would I go for her eyeshadows again? Probably not but I’d always wanted to try them and now I have.
I will buy more from this range, I’m hoping to pick up the beautiful pressed powder and the highlight and bronze duo!
Do you have anything from Charlotte Tilbury? Do you think they’re worth the hype? What would you recommend and what would you stay away from?
