Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita Palette

Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Palette

The Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Palette was my very first foray into the brand, in which since that time I have found myself falling hook line and sinker for the rose gold packaging and beautiful thought out hues. I've three of these palettes now and each one is incredibly unique, offering me something different depending on the colours and indeed looks that I want to create that day. I've already popped up a review of the Fallen Angel Palette which is not just stunning but is also one of my most used palettes to date, despite the pain it caused me to finally wear down those embossed stars.

In contrast to the Fallen Angel Palette we have The Dolce Vita which is much more warmed tone in nature. Like all of Charlotte Tilbury's Eye Shadow Quads they are all set out step by step on the back of the quad which enables you to create your own smoky eye. That is great of course if you want that type of look however for every day I do find that it can be a little much, therefore I just tend to use what I fancy, although for those who are a little unsure of where to use what shades and what type of eye shadow then it's a great little feature to be included.

Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Eye Shadow Palette

The Dolce Vita consists of four eye shadows, the first being step one which is the prime shade. This is shade that I found a little difficult to describe, however in conclusion I opted for it being a light peach which almost verges on champagne. This is a shimmer and offers not just a perfect shadow as your starting point but also an ideal one for highlighting the inner corner and brow bone. Step two involved enhancing the look of which by using the rich rust toned brown you're able to create definition around the eye and within the socket. 

Moving onto step three which involves a bit more blending you want to smoke out the eye shadow. This shade is perhaps more accustomed to the usual types of shades I go for as it's more of a traditional brown of which when paired up with the rust toned shade they truly do work beautifully together. On a side note I'd like to add that whilst all the shades have generally photographed pretty well here I do think that this one has come out a little flat on camera, it is actually very pretty when you see it for yourself. Finally to add a little extra dimension to the look you have step four which is pop! This gold glitter shade is one of the prettiest I have seen yet I think it's hard to overdo it as it is so pretty and delicate. In order to apply this I'd advise using your finger to gently dab it on where you want it as I think it is much easier in comparison to using a brush.

I think this little quad offers quite a diverse range of looks for both day and night, in fact I think this applies to all of the Charlotte Tilbury quads as they truly are fantastic. In terms of pigmentation I have yet to be disappointed as they are one of the best I own in terms of this. Creasing is very minimal in my experience; although I'm yet to find powder eye shadows that do not crease at all however using an eye shadow primer will help with this greatly.

Overall once again Charlotte Tilbury make up ticks all of the boxes. I think that it's needless to say that I'm really looking forward to the release of her summer collection in a few month's time.

  11. I was just eyeing Charlotte Tillbury online and was so close to giving in to purchasing one of her quads! I am swooning over the Fallen Angel palette but this one looked beautiful as well. So glad the line will be in Canada next month!

  15. When Charlotte Tilbury first started coming out with products, I wondered if it was all hype, but I have heard nothing but good things from the brand, and the packaging is always gorgeous! This eyeshadow quad is at the top of my list! x

  16. This is so beautiful, I love the packaging! I have absolutely no need for anymore make-up but hopefully at some point I'll have slimmed my collection down enough that I feel justified in treating myself to something from Charlotte Tilsbury's range - everything looks so gorgeous, I don't know how I'd choose!

  22. I'm desperate to get my hands on this little beauty! I've been eyeing it up for a while but I've always managed to convince myself that I don't actually need it... I think it may finally be time...

  31. It sure is a brand well worth checking out Jodie, the eye shadow crayons also when swatched look stunning however I haven't yet tried them for myself.

  32. Charlotte Tilbury is well worth checking out when you can Jackie, I like how she has colour co-ordinated products to create achievable looks.

  33. Oh yes the Fallen Angel Palette is seriously divine! If I were you however I'd definitely wait so you can try them all for yourself, just so you can see the various shades properly.

  39. The Rock Chic is equally as beautiful, I have a review of that coming soon too.

  40. You could always pop it on a Christmas list Heather. That's what I did with the NARS Fairy's Kiss Palette, I couldn't justify it at the time so asked for it for Christmas. It sat wrapped up in it's box for three months before I could open it haha.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think so too, this is my favourite although I do really love the other two that I own.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have only tried a sample from her foundation line, I'd love to try her magic cream deep down, I'm super curious about that.

    ReplyDelete
  43. It took me a while, imagine how I felt about the Fallen Angel Palette with all of those pretty stars haha!
