Charlotte Tilbury - Instant look in a palette
Well it's been a while since Ive purchased anything from Charlotte Tilbury, so right on time I got a lovely email titled SUMMER SALE! Need I say anymore?
Right Ive actually had my eye on this for a little while, its called Instant look in a palette in natural beauty, but didn't want to make an impulse buy, then I thought that this little palette could be perfect to pop in my handbag for on the go as it really does have everything you need and as for that SUMMER SALE well I got this for £29.40 instead of £49!

It's compact with a decent sized built in mirror, it contains 3 eyeshadows, bronzer, highlighter and 2 blushers, now thats what I call a palette, I have to say Charlotte really gets us ladies! The packaging itself just looks so pretty and sassy, so I won't be ashamed in whipping this little one out to do my touch ups.
No1 Eye brightener, its light in colour and perfect for all over the eyelid as a base.
No2 Eye enhance, I put this in the inner corner of my eye lid.
No3 Eye smoke, Now I was a bit heavy handed with this one, just remember to tap of any excess. I placed this on the outside of my eye giving a perfect soft smokey eye.
Bronzer and Highlighter
This bronzer is a perfect matt that gives the skin a perfect but subtle sun kissed look that is build-able. As for the highlighter it has a soft glow, would recommend putting this on the tops of the cheekbones and under the brow bone and cupids bow on the lips.
Now being brutally honest I'm not keen blusher, but this has totally changed my mind. No5 cheek swish I swipe across the apples of my cheeks give that natural flush to the face and the I just tap No6 cheek pop right on top, I don't know how or why but I just love the look, it makes me look awake and refreshed.
Until now I have never bought make up online, unusual I know especially in this day and age. What I can say that the service from Charlotte Tilbury was amazing from the website that is easy to use, through to delivery which was standard but arrived in 3 days of ordering and it was beautifully packaged, I totally get the excitement now when I watch other bloggers and you tubers do un-boxings.
The quality of the palette is amazing with a velvet butter like texture that is so easy to use and feels amazing when applying, i like to think of it as a little luxury in a palette.
I totally get why this palette is a best seller if you haven't already got one, get one! Ask for it as your birthday, do your chores, treat yourself or just simply save up for it.
The only thing I would say is brushes. I feel like you need one for the eyeshadow, one for the bronzer etc, its like someone needs to design a compact swiss army knife contraception of make up brushes, or just invest in a mini travel size brush set, what do you guys think? Any recommendations?
This is such a versatile palette that can really take you from day to night, even creating that perfect no makeup, makeup look, Iv'e not stopped using it!
