Beauty Review: Charlotte Tilbury's Instant Look in a Palette

I usually shy away from palettes, simply because I like to choose the colors I like.  However, there's something to be said for colors that are perfectly matched to work together. This palette hits the nail on the head!

Charlotte Tilbury has a few different options in her "Instant Look in a Palette" collection.  I tried Seductive Beauty, which also comes in an all-in-one makeup set called "The Instant Seductive Beauty Look."

There are a few things I really like about this palette, starting with the versatility.  The colors are neutral enough to wear for day, but can be amped up and applied more heavily for night.  Likewise, the shimmer is beautiful for a summer glow, but can also have a dramatic effect for a special occasion.

I also like that the colors are both cool and warm.  The #2 Eye Enhance is a neutral taupe that can go with brown or grey tones, depending on how it's applied.  The #3 Smoke is described as chocolate brown and has beautiful copper undertones. 

Finally, I love that it's all in one.  If you're traveling, this has everything you need from your eyes to your bronzer, blush and highlight.  You can even use the bronzer as a brow filler if you're really in a pinch!  The color is a subtle brown and not overly orange like a lot of other bronzers out there.

To apply... follow the numbers and adjust for what looks best with the shape of your eyes and face.  I prefer to start with #2, then apply #1, followed by #3 and a quick tap of #1 again to finish.  However, that's my preference.  Do what works best for you!

The "Seductive Beauty", "Natural Beauty" and "Beauty Glow" Instant Looks in a Palette are available for $75.00 each. 

Or if you really want to go big, check out the "Instant Seductive Beauty Look" I mentioned earlier, which retails for $190.00, but also comes with mascara, eye and lip liner, lipstick and lip lustre!  The "Complete Natural Glowing Look" retails for $144.00 and comes with mascara, lip liner and lipstick.
