Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel Palette

Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel Eye Shadow Palette

There's no denying that when it comes to Charlotte Tilbury I fall head line and sinker straight into the counter. I find myself eyeing up the latest releases as soon as they launch which is a tad concerning however bear with me here, it's not just the beautiful packaging that keeps me captivated as these eye shadows are very, very good. 

Last summer I got a glimpse of the Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel Palette which I knew was due for release in the autumn. Having at the time the Dolce Vita Palette I knew that this would be one that I'd like to add to my collection, the shade range appealed to me like no other and I knew that it would be of good quality, plus let's not ignore the fact that the presentation of this palette is incredibly beautiful. The case is dotted with tiny little rose gold stars which is different to all of the other palettes in the range. As far as I'm still aware this palette is a limited edition although it is still for sale on the website and has been now for a few months.

Inside the palette there are four shades like normal all of which have a wet to dry formula so that they can be used differently to create various levels of intensity. Like all Charlotte Tilbury quads there is a prep, enhance, smoke and pop shade which helps to give you a little guide as to how to use them, although I just tend to go with what I like and hope for the best. For the prep option there is a beautiful champagne shade that catches the light wonderfully. Whilst this can be used all over the lid I also like to use it in the inner corner of my eye and on the brow bone to act somewhat of a highlight. 

To enhance the eye there is a taupe shade which has silver running through it. It is described as antiqued silver which I think is nice however it is not a full on silver shade such as those found in the rock chic palette. Moving onto the smoke option there is a velvet black which is very pigmented and needs a light hand, this is lovely to use for helping to create that beautiful sultry look by using it within the crease; I also sometimes use it to act as a smoky liner too. Lastly the pop colour in this palette is quite different to the others that I have tried as they have all been quite glittery whereas this is not. The metallic bronze in the palette is probably my favourite shade alongside the taupe option where it can be used to add that little bit of drama to the eye, something to quite literally make the eye pop.  

In terms of pigmentation these eye shadows are incredible, they really do work wonders and blend so very easily. Where fall out is concerned I have experienced very little with this palette, in fact I have experienced very little fall out with all of them so far. For me these have been one of the best eye shadows I have used to date in terms of not creasing, that's both with and without a primer although a primer is always best and will help prevent creasing for as long as possible.

Overall I personally could not recommend the Charlotte Tilbury quads enough; they really are beautiful and add a little bit of luxury to your make up bag. Whilst initially they are expensive at £38 (bear in mind this limited edition palette is £45) they do work out cheaper than putting together your own MAC quad.

  24. This is just beautiful Amy, all her palettes look so well thought out, the shades always seem to work so well together :) I'd never really thought about the price in comparison MAC shadows, I guess that makes this seem more reasonable!

  25. Wow this palette is absolutely gorgeous, I really want to give this palette a shot - would have to wait until I’m paid as they are so expensive haha. The etched stars on the powders are just such a cute touch :)

  27. Really thorough and wonderful review. I still have not been able to get my hands on any Charlotte Tillbury products - I don#t think you can get them here in Germany - but they always sound amazing when I am reading reviews of her products. I love the shades in this palette and it's great that they are broken down to guide you how and where to use each color. I also really love the stamped design of constellations.

  40. I honestly do think so, I think it is incredibly versatile for just four shades x

    ReplyDelete
  41. Her products really are gorgeous! I realise that the black shade has come across more like a navy in the light, it is black though :) x

    ReplyDelete
  42. The star pattern is a huge selling point for me, I know that sounds a little weird as it is only packaging but it's a very pretty palette x

    ReplyDelete
  43. Someone else referred to it as blue but it is black :) I think the light has made it looked quite navy which is a bit misleading. It's a gorgeous palette Zara x

  44. It most certainly is Heather x

  45. The quads are beautiful! I have tried a lipstick from the normal line although I'm tempted by the matte versions as I have been told that they are lovely x

  49. I agree they are all very well thought out, it's nice to see. Yes I had never really thought of that too but when you realise it I think it definitely puts things into more perspective x
