I love Charlotte Tilbury makeup, like all of it, but the one product I really wanted to try more of is her eyeshadows. I decided to get a bit of a different palette (from most of the others beauty bloggers reach for) and go with The Golden Goddess. Its a stunning array of gold tones that create beachy, summer, bronze toned eye looks. Its a fabulous everyday palette and that glitter shade adds something fun but chic to a night out look.
I know all the shades in this palette have some shimmer, but I really like the scheme where you can get one all matte palette (The Sophisticate, review and swatches here) and then pair that with any of the other eye shadow palettes if you want. I find this palette alone creates an amazing look. I actually find I can do a lot of different looks with this one palette, so I don’t get bored or sick of it. I love using the light gold all over the lid to brighten and open the eye with the taupe in the crease for a cool look. Or use the bronze in the crease with the gold Prime all over the lid for a warmer look. I also love using the taupe or the bronze all over the lid, for something a bit darker.
I wore the glitter all over the lid when I went to see Swan Lake at the Philadelphia Ballet, and you just really have to jam your finger in there and smush the glitter on. Don’t be gentle, go for it and I recommend using a finger instead of a brush. Its so stunning and I didn’t see the glitter migrate to my cheeks after the night out.
I love this palette, its so fabulous for everyday and I can get both cool and warm looks from it. I don’t find the shimmer too much together and the glitter adds something unique and fun. I’m all for it. I now want to try all of these, the shades are so well coordinated and the shadow quality is amazing. Creamy, pigmented, non-creasing (with a primer, I can’t wear shadow without it), no fallout, easy to blend (basically blends itself), and beautifully packaged.
The rundown: A+
