Ahhh, come here my pretty! When I saw this beauty exclusive from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, my love for Charlotte Tilbury and palettes bubbled over and spilled over onto my credit card and it just….happened.  It wasn’t my fault! No matter I’m glad it happened, GLAD I tell you!

Charlotte says: “All you need is five minutes to create a flawless face, a smoldering stare and to finish it all off with chiseled cheeks and luscious lashes.” I totally agree Char!

The Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In A Palette 5 Minute Face On The Go Seductive Beauty ($75) – say that fast three times! Whew! Loooong name aside, this lovely palette consists of:

  • 3 eyeshadows: #1 Eye Brighten: A base eyeshadow in a color-correcting, brightening champagne hue to prime the surface of the eyelid for an all-day application.  #1 Brighten, a soft peachy champagne satin.
  • #2 Eye Enhance: Adds dreamy dimension and illumination to the eyelid in a natural glowing champagne shade. #2 Enhance, a soft, warm bronze satin taupe.
  • #3 Eye Smoke: For defined eyes in a flattering  warm brown/bronze pearlized shade, that can be built up to create a smoky eye.#3 Smoke, a warm, mid-brown satin with gold shift.
  • #4 Face Bronzer: To define the cheekbone hollows, jawline and nose shape with an all-natural, all-skin tone bronze color in the best-selling Filmstar Bronze & Glow formula
  • #5 Cheek Swish: For a healthy, happy glow, apply on the apple of the cheek and blend out. #5 is a coral satin blush
  • #6 Cheek Pop: For a natural lit-from-within glow, an uplifting pretty pink to be applied to the apple of the cheeks.
  • #7 Face Highlighter: Candlelight for the skin in a candlelit shade to be applied to the outer C-section of the cheekbones, down the nose, on the bow of the lips and inner corners of the eyes.
  • Mini Legendary Lashes Mascara

Use all of the harmonious shades in this palette to tailor your look, pairing it with the new Legendary Lashes Mascara for full volume and Hollywood flutter. Seductive Beauty makes a fabulous everyday look or can be ramped up for a well….seductive night out!

The texture of all the eyeshadows in the palette is buttery soft and smooth with no fallout! What I love most about this palette is the finish. The shadows are neither glittery or even shimmery–they have a beautiful luminous sheen that makes eyes shine!

CT eye shadow

I’m always a little nervous about bronzers, especially in palettes because I am pale and so many turn muddy on me. Not so with CT Filmstar and Glow. It’s not flat but it’s not shimmery, giving it a stunning lit-from-within glow. The blushes impart the same radiant glow in shades of coral and pink. #7, the face highlighter provides a luminous “JLo Glow” without being overpowering. It a pretty champagne blush shade.

CT Swatches

I know what you’re thinking beauties. True, these are not super unique shades but what makes them special is the fabulous texture and the exquisite finish. Charlotte Tilbury has the formula down, y’all!

Legendary Lashes is just meh for me. It didn’t impress but I don’t hate it either. It is a nice touch to include a mini as an extra.

As usual, the Charlotte Tilbury packaging is sleek and elegant. The compact is about 4×4 in the typical burgundy and gold design. It has a full mirror but no brushes. I don’t mind, I rarely use the brushes that come in palettes anyway. Having a full face of makeup in a travel palette scores points too!

CT Palette

On eyes are all three eyeshadows: #1 as base and on brow bone, #2 on lid, #3 in crease and blended out. Marc Jacobs Magic Marc’er eyeliner in black on top lid and tarte Skinny SmolderEYES in Purple Garnet on bottom lash line. Mascara is CT Legendary Lashes.

For this look I used IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream Illumination SPF 50+ as foundation, #3 CT Filmstar Bronze & Glow on forehead, under cheekbones, dab on chin and on neck. #6 Cheek Pop on the apples of cheeks and #7 highlighter on top of cheeks and on cupids bow. On lips is Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect.

Charlotte Tilbury

Bottom Line: If you want a versatile palette that gives a polished, elegant everyday look that you can use for smoky looks too, the Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In A Palette 5 Minute Face On The Go Seductive Beauty is it! Yes, it’s pricey but the quality and versatility make it worth every penny! And truthfully, since an eyeshadow palette from CT is $52, you are getting a bronzer + two blushes + a highlighter for only $23 more!

    Gorgeous look on you! Those shades are perfection for summer. I know it is helpful for CT to label the pans so you know what is what, but it would be prettier without it. Nevertheless, a lovely palette

  2. These are great tips. You look fabulous. I’ve never been one to wear a lot of make up, but I honestly don’t know much about buying what is right for me.

  3. Christine Cox says

    I like #1 and #7 best! And I think it is awesome that they labeled the pans except what happens when you start to use it and then it goes away anyways? Might have been better off labeling on the back of the case.

  4. OMG I love these colors and they also complement you. The swatches look pretty impressive too.

  5. Mine is due here any day and I can’t wait. I don’t know why I didn’t buy it the first day of the sale. I love the look you did. Your eyes look sultry. The mascara looks wonderful on you.

    • I’m excited to see what you think Marcia! I really like the #2 eyeshadow shade, it’s kind of taupe, brown and green in different light.

  6. I like that palette too, it’s pretty much complete. The colors are nice too, perfect for everyday wear. I don’t mind splurging on a palette as useful as this!

  7. Aleya Bamdad says

    This palette is gorgeous! Those golds are absolutely amazing.

  8. I’m loving the finished look! This sounds like a great palette you can always fall back on.

  9. J-Man and MillerBug says

    Wow, very pretty! I love how the makeup is not shiny, but has a beautiful shimmer to it. It’s a neat feature that they label each item as well!
