Your on the go summer palette- Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In A Palette Beauty Glow

If you've read my blog before you will know that one of my favourite high end beauty brands is Charlotte Tilbury. I've talked about many of her products before because her products are incredible and as all the products are thought of and developed by Tilbury herself, you know that as a hugely successful makeup artist she sure knows how to make great products.

One of her newest product releases is from her new #GLOWMO range which is about giving you that summer glow by using her summer must haves which includes a face tan, something that's not my thing but it sounds pretty cool if you are into fake tan. Anyway the product which I could not wait to purchase was her latest Instant Look In A Palette in Beauty Glow. This is basically the summer version of her popular and well love face palettes and as I love the Seductive Beauty one so much I thought that I'd buy this one too. This palette is meant to help you create an everyday summer look as it provides you with 3 eyeshadows, 2 blushers, a bronzer & a highlighter, so you have all the key products you need in one handy palette that will fit both in your carry on and your handbag.

Let's talk about the eyeshadows first. You have the Eye Brighten shade which is a lovely champagne highlighter shade that would look gorgeous both in the inner corner of the eye or all over the lid to brighten up the eyes. Next is the Eye Enhance shade which is the perfect bronze brown shade that you can quickly sweep over the lid to give your eyes instant colour and it's pigmented enough that you could use that one shade and simply add some liquid liner and mascara to finish the eyes off with. The last eyeshadow is the Eye Smoke which is a great deep but warm brown shade that is the perfect colour to define the crease with, or you could use it to create a cut crease to give you more of an intense eye look. I really love all of these shadows as I think they are really versatile and easy to use. Also the pigmentation is great too.

Moving onto the bronzer, I feel that this colour is more of a contour colour rather than a bronzer because on light to medium skintones it comes out as pretty light and I have a generic warm, light skin tone, so unless you have a pale or fair skin tone then I would not use this as a bronzer, just as a contour colour. The blusher shades are actually very different to each other. The Cheek Swish is actually a reddish brown blush shade which for me is just waaaay to dark to be a blusher, so I would use that as a reddish brown eyeshadow instead. However the Cheek Pop is a lovely mid toned warm pink that will look pretty on lots of skin tones, it's a very pretty in summer pink kind of shade. I looooove the highlighter a lot in this palette because it's subtle but you can still see it on the skin which is fab and it gives you a beautiful everyday champagne shimmer but it's easily buildable if you do want to create more of an intense highlight look.

Overall I really love this palette a lot! I can feel that it's going to be my go-to summer palette for sure! I highly recommend buying it as you have many products in one useful palette which means it's both versatile and practical which is brilliant!

Have you tried this palette? If so let me know what you think of it in the comments.
