This is a post that’s been in the works for the longest time. You might already know if you keep up with me on twitter and instagram, that James bought me the gorgeous Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita eyeshadow palette AKA ‘the stuff of dreams’ for Christmas.
Yep, I’ve had it that long and this is only the first you’re hearing about it on here. Don’t judge me for not being able to ruin it’s prettiness, after all there’s nothing quite like a new palette when you’re obsessed with eyeshadow. Now I won’t bore you too much, I’m sure you’ve all heard about this at some point already. It’s encased in the most gorgeous gold and brown packaging that gives the word ‘luxe’ new meaning.
The prime shade (top left, we’re going clockwise), is the perfect highlight shade. I’m talking a subtle champagne shade with just the right amount of shimmer. For enhancing, we have a gorgeous brown that runs a little on the red side. Nothing too scary though, it’s pretty much my favourite shade in this whole little kit. Then for smoking out, there’s a lovely brown, one I think that works perfectly in the crease. Okay, maybe I lied earlier when I said the enhance shade was my favourite, because the pop shade is the only that gets me weak at the knees. A gold toned shadow, with glitter running through it is one I just can’t get enough of.
If you think you know pigmentation, then think again. This stuff is the definition of buttery, soft, no fallout, and all around general prettiness. Oh and to just add to the amazingness, it pretty much takes hours to crease and lasts all day. Yep, it’s darn good stuff. Charlotte Tilbury got it bang on with this stuff. Now I just need more, any recommendations for your ‘new to CT’ gal?
