Stuck In The Middle With You


I recently jumped on the Charlotte Tilbury hype and ordered myself one of her Luxury Eyeshadow Quads (£38.00) in 'Rock Chick.' It's my first product from her range and after reading so many positive reviews I had to try one for myself.

First of all, the images online made this quad look very black, grey and silvery, and when it's come to using it, it's more taupe, brown and black, which was a little disappointing because I really wanted a black grey and white palette.
The packaging game is strong, I adore the inside of the compact especially, give me some gold and some engraving and I'm sold!

The pigmentation is great, and although they look different on the internet, the colours are still gorgeous and the colour pay off is amazing. I think the four shades are very versatile and could take you from day to night. You can create a simple five minute look, or spend half an hour with all four colours perfecting a smokey eye.
The shadows blend easily and don't require too much build up, however I find that I get a lot of fall out and drop down. With the darker shades especially, after a couple of hours and during application I find myself with black dust under my eyes.
Without an eyeshadow primer, they're pretty rubbish too. I took this to A&E to do my make-up in ten minutes in the back of an ambulance, and obviously I didn't bother priming my lids before applying these, but it just seemed to fade so quickly, it creased like hell and made my eyes a dusty black mess.

I don't find myself reaching for this very often because I can't be bothered with the mess, but if I have a lot of time to create an intense smokey eye and apply primer, it's great.
I don't love or hate the product, I think I will remain undecided, however it will not stop me trying some more Charlotte Tilbury products in the future, I'm currently eyeing up a lip cheat and matte lipstick.
