Charlotte Tilbury The Rock Chick Palette

Charlotte Tilbury The Rock Chic Eye Shadow Palette

It is no secret that one of my favourite beauty brands is Charlotte Tilbury. Over the last six months or so you will have seen a few of her products featured on here whereby today I am back with another. In the past I have featured the Dolce Vita Palette alongside the Fallen Angel Palette as well as her beautiful lipstick Bitch Perfect. Having now three of the eye shadow quads from Charlotte Tilbury I have to say that they are some of my favourites, they are all (the ones I have tried at least) buttery soft and blend beautifully; I have yet to find a fault with any of them.

The next palette I wished to feature on my blog today is The Rock Chick Palette which was one that I won from Jordan a little while ago, I owe a huge thank you to Jordan because this palette is one that I enjoy using immensely; it is gorgeous! 

Charlotte Tilbury The Rock Chic Eye Shadow Palette

By now you all probably know the drill when it comes to these palettes but for those of you that don't I'll sum it up for briefly. Basically all of the Charlotte Tilbury quads have a prime, enhance, smoke and pop shade which is summarised on the back of the palette. By following them in that specific order you can create a perfect smoky eye with an extra pop of colour to it; call it the grand finale of the eye shadow world. 

Enter The Rock Chick in which the prime shade in this quad is of course the lightest shade, this to me is somewhat of a grey/beige toned champagne which is utterly beautiful. Despite it being light this isn't the type of shade I personally would want to use for highlighting the brow bone, it is too dark for me. Having said that it does make a beautiful base in which to begin creating your desired look, it is also very pretty on its own too. The second shade which is the enhance shade is quite comfortably my favourite shade in the quad. This is a medium toned taupe brown with somewhat of a pearlescent sheen to it, I think it is that added factor which makes it stand out more to me than any other shade like this.

The darkest shade in the quad is that of the smoke shade which is dark brown, although I would argue that it verges very close to the grey side of things. I have read a few reviews which seem to think this shade in particular isn't as pigmented as the others but I would firmly disagree, I think it is perfectly fine and that it is equal to the others within the quad. This really is the shade that you want to use should you wish to really smoke out your look, it is beautiful but is one to use with a light hand because you don't need much at all. Finally there is the pop shade which I think is very similar in shade to that of the enhance shade only with added glitter to it. The texture of this is different to the others as it feels glossy I guess yet applies just as well, the added factor of the glitter does not make this any rougher as in keeping with the quality of all of the shades it is soft and easy to blend. Having said that there is an element of fall out with this shade although this is something I can overlook; in all honesty in my experience it has not been too bad at all.

In terms of longevity and pigmentation on a whole, I can but say that I have been nothing short of impressed with The Rock Chick. Like all of the Charlotte Tilbury quads this is encased within the dark brown and rose gold packaging and retails at £38. Once again I feel incredibly happy with the quality of this eye shadow quad; it really does seem as though Charlotte Tilbury can do no wrong.

At the end of December last year I voted for Charlotte Tilbury to be my brand of the year, I truly loved everything at the time and continue to this day to reach for her products on a daily basis. It goes without saying that I cannot wait for her collaboration with Norman Parkinson in early July to be released, it looks incredible!

    I just bought this too! Grey eyeshadows don't get the same kinda love as the warm neutrals that everyone seems to love but they're my fave. Have you tried her cream eyeshadows yet? They're to die for! xx

  7. I know, I think these are beautiful and they look gorgeous on. I have tried them in store, I haven't purchased one as I will be picking up a couple of things from the Norman Parkinson collection so I must wait. They are however stunning, I might pick one up later in the year. :)

  11. You definitely want to see them in person, I only say that because there are quite a few and you may end up finding you prefer one when you had never even considered it before, I did that with my very first one.

  12. She sure does, this palette is beautiful.

  13. I haven't really seen many (any??) reviews on this CT palette. It would be perfect for a smoky evening look! I have Fallen Angel and I love it. I'd really like to try The Sophisticate next I think.

  16. Wow, how awesome to have won this gorgeous palette in a giveaway :) This particular one probably isn't the next 1-2 I'm eyeing from Charlotte Tilbury if I ever were to splurge on another of her eyeshadow palettes, though it does look ideal for a classic smokey eye. I'm sure the quality of the shadows can't be faulted though if my experience with The Dolce Vita is anything to go by!

  17. I can't even express how beautiful all those shades look! I just feel like CT can do no wrong!

  20. They sure are! I did contemplate swatches but I really struggled to capture them on camera, the photos also looked awful so I wasn't happy with them, I hope you understand. A few people have mentioned this isn't a palette they would go for over her others, I can see why, it is however a nice change to warm brown tones I think.

  21. This is such a bold and beautiful palette!

  22. What a beautiful palette, I always thought this would be too much black for me in a palette but not I really want it.

  23. I know what you mean, there doesn't seem to be as many as there are say the Dolce Vita Palette.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Haha, oh gosh! At least they're all available throughout the year, you can pace yourself.

    ReplyDelete
  25. It is a beautiful palette for that classic smoky eye, you're right. I think this is one that is often overlooked, it's well worth swatching for yourself if you get the chance. Yes, the quality of these palettes is superb isn't it.

  26. That's how I feel Jodie, everything I have tried I have been impressed with.

  28. I like that it offers something different to the normal brown toned neutrals we see.

  29. It's well worth looking at closer Sian, I think you'd be really quite surprised.

  30. I really do recommend them Heather.

  31. The only one I've tried thus far is the Vintage Vamp quad and it's been a dream! While these shadows are a bit too grey for me personally I agree that her products are incredible and definitely hope to pick up a few more pieces soon xx

  32. Although I own all of the Charlotte Tilbury palettes, the Rock Chick is one of my favorites for a smoky eye look!

    I still cannot bring myself to buy anything from Charlotte Tilbury even though all I ever see on my blog reading list are posts singing her praises... I wouldn't know where to start :) I love the idea of her eyeshadow palettes though, with the "pop" shade :)

  36. Yes Vintage Vamp certainly looks stunning. Have you seen her new collection launching in July? It is beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  37. It is great for that isn't it, I find it really creates a classic smoky eye.

    ReplyDelete
  38. For me if I were to advise on anything to buy it would be an eye shadow palette. I know they're expensive but they really are beautiful and of good quality. I think if you're so unsure it would be worth going to a counter and having a good old browse, I think you'd find something that caught your eye for definite.

  39. The products really are gorgeous, every time I pop by the counter I always try the eye shadow crayons as they are stunning! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I think that just goes to highlight the risk of ordering make up online, you really need to see it for yourself sometimes don't you.

    ReplyDelete
  41. This palette looks gorgeous! One day I will own one of her palettes. What an amazing prize! xx
