As many of you probably know Charlotte Tilbury rarely have an eyeshadow palette on its permanent collection in fact last year a limited edition one showed up almost at the end of the year at it was sold out in one day, So this year Charlotte surprised us with another palette the Stars In your Eyes Palette, this one is still a limited edition but lately I noticed that many of their “limited edition” became permanent or they are re-stocking due to the high demand, which is not surprise as this brand really knows what the make-up market wants.
This lovely palette has a price tag of £60, you can find 12 shades divided into four complementary trios something similar to Charlotte’s quartets, following the enhance and smoke method. The finishes include mattes, metallics, and shimmers.
Normally with eye palettes you work with the name of the shades and make your own mix, here each group has a name. It follows a rose gold color scheme, If we have to compare with some palettes released this year the closer ones are BackTalk and Naked Cherry both by Urban Decay, but after being using them I think this one is actually more wearable and would get a better use than the Naked Cherry that hardly ever use it, money wise this one is a better.
Matte: I love my matte shades but having oily lids is really hard to make them last properly before they become a mess or losing pigmentation pretty easily, didn’t have this issue the ones in this palette as they are very pigmented but easily to blend at the same time, not patchy at all, very friendly with all the brushes I used. the colors survived all the time, proof of the great quality.
Shimmer: The formula is mostly creamy it takes a bit to build them unlike the matte ones, but it does has a lovely pigmentation
Metallic: To get the real metallic effect the best is to work with a wet brush or apply directly with the fingers, pigmentation wise is just lovely.
I have tried quiet a lot of eye palettes this year and very few were different or worth the money, I mean now days most of them are almost the same, so find something at least classy became hard especially good quality, so I really like this palette still have to play with most of the colours but if you want a good deal, I would strongly recommend it.
