The Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette is designed to give a five minute fool proof look. The texture of these powders is buttery, soft, pigmented and just all out amazing. I love the texture of these powders and much prefer them to her standard eye quad textures. I’ve reviewed all the Instant Look in a Palettes to date–HERE, HERE, and HERE. The quality of these shadows is just amazing. They blend with ease, are never dry, pigmented and feel so buttery. I really wish Charlotte Tilbury would make singles in this texture.

Eye Brighten is a shimmery pale rose gold. Eye Enhance is a matte medium neutral brown. This is a perfect matte brown, neither too red, yellow or cool. Eye Smoke is a soft matte black. This is not a dry or streaky black and it blends easily. Not always something you can say for a matte black. The Face Bronze in the palette is lightly shimmery, lighter and more neutral or pink in tone. It’s not yellow or orange toned. The Face Highlight is a shimmery pale yellow gold. I’m happy this isn’t a full on strong warm yellow gold. That makes it easier for me to wear. Cheek Swish is a lightly shimmery peachy nude. Cheek Pop is a lightly shimmery peachy pink.

I love the cheek colors in this palette. The cheek colors are subdued, but are enough to show up on my medium skin tone. They are the best cheek shades to date in these palettes for my skin tone. I love the Eye Enhance shade. It’s the best matte medium neutral brown ever. It looks great for a matte, it’s just the perfect tone. The powders are finely milled and well done. The eye shades last all day without creasing. Overall, this palette gives a light neutral look that you can very lightly smoke with black, or very heavily smoke it out. I would recommend checking it out, especially while the gift card event is going on.
