If you missed out on the Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette your in luck! John Lewis has this palette in an exclusive gift set with a deluxe sample of Charlotte Tilbury’s new mascara Legendary Lashes. It’s perfect for a Christmas gift for that special someone, or to buy for yourself, because hey, you’re worth it!
The palette first came out in April this year and quickly sold out – not surprising as it is great for on the go, those of you who travel a lot and you don’t want to take a million and one products with you, or for makeup newbies. It contains 3 eye shadows, the famous filmstar bronze and glow and two blush shades.
It’s £49, which yes, is a little pricy, but for the quality and how many products you get in it, plus the added bonus of getting a deluxe sample size of the Legendary Lashes mascara, it’s pretty good value for money. Plus, another thing I love about this palette is the fact that it has a mirror that is the full size of the palette, which makes doing your makeup on the go even easier.
This palette is designed to be a ‘5 minute face on the go’, and from looking at all the products it is a great everyday makeup look palette that would take you no time at all in applying. There’s nothing complicated about these products, they have handy step by step numbers embossed on them, and you can use it by itself, or add more products if you wish.
If you’re a Charlotte Tilbury fan already you’ll probably already know how her blushers work, however if you are new to her products then let me get you in the know. The reason why there are two blush shades is because in her full size blushers Charlotte incorporated two shades so that you can use the outer blush for an overall cheek colour and the centre shade is to add an extra pop of colour. Hence why in this palette they are called swish and pop. Or you could use them separately, either way it’s nice to have a choice of blushers.
I think this palette would be great for people who do their makeup on their commute to work. You can do your foundation at home and the rest of your makeup on the train, or have a small makeup bag with you containing this palette and a few extra products, your sorted. Plus you have a lighter bag!
