When I see these all-in-one face and eye palettes, I usually pass on them. There’s always a couple of colors or products that I know right away that I won’t use, and that makes it not worth it to me. If I am going to spend a lot of money on a palette like that, I want to make sure I will like and use everything included.
This time I splurged. Behold. The Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In A Palette 5 Minute Face On The Go.
I purchased this palette from Nordstrom as soon as it came out. The eyeshadows are extremely wearable and neutral, and the cheek colors are exactly what I would pick out. I really feel like if I created my own palette, this is exactly what I would do.
So, the palette is a very nice size, and you get a big mirror too. The products are numbered in the order that you are supposed to use them, so if you are new to makeup, this is perfect for you.
The eyeshadows include a very light matte cream/pink color, and this color is supposed to be used all over the lid as a base to brighten up the area.
The second color is a gold/taupe color that is so shimmery and perfect for all over the lid.
The last color is a matte medium brown, used for deepening up the crease or outer v for some definition. These colors are so buttery, soft, and so pigmented. It is Charlotte Tilbury, after all. She knows what she is doing.
Here are the eyeshadow swatches:
Next, there is a nice cool toned bronzer with some shimmer. The shimmer is very minimal and doesn’t show up once applied. This color isn’t orange at all, and gives that sunkissed look.
There are also two blush colors included, a shimmery, dusty peachy-pink color, and a matte, brighter cool toned pink. Both colors are gorgeous- the peachy pink looks like a pretty, natural flush, and the bright pink gives a nice pop of color to the cheeks and still looks natural.
The last color is the highlight. This highlight is so pretty. It is shimmery, champagne gold that gives such a nice sheen to the cheekbones without glitter or sparkle. Just glow.
All of these colors are pigmented, and so soft and creamy. They blend like a freakin dream.
Here I am wearing all of the products in the palette.
I am obsessed with this. It is probably my favorite makeup item that I’ve ever purchased. I knew as soon as I saw it that the colors were perfect.
Having said that, I do not think that this palette would work on deeper skin tones. The colors are pretty light, but you can build them up. If you are a fair to medium skintone, you will love this. I have heard buzz about a deeper colored palette coming out, so hopefully that will be an option soon.
I LOVE this palette and I’m so happy with my purchase. This is perfect for someone who travels a lot, or someone who is on the go and needs to get ready fast. This palette is quick, easy, and looks so natural and pretty. I will be reaching for this a ton this summer.
Do you like this palette?
