I think just about every beauty blogger has swooned over Charlotte Tilbury's makeup line at one time or another. Ever since the line launched, I had my eyes on one of her eyeshadow quads - the packaging is divine for one, and the colors in each palette compliment each other so well that you could get a foolproof look every time, whether it's dramatic or simple. I had my heart set on The Dolce Vita, a collection of warm neutrals, because I thought it would really compliment my brown eyes. Then the limited edition Fallen Angel palette came out and I fell in love all over again.
I was so surprised and grateful to open the Dolce Vita palette on Christmas morning. It was just as beautiful in person as I had seen online. A few days later, I found out I had won a giveaway on Morgan's blog that I had entered before Christmas for the Fallen Angel palette! I seriously think with the two of these, I might never need any more eyeshadows ever again.
Everyone always talks about how beautifully packaged these quads are, and they really are, but the most important thing to me is the formula. These are so buttery and soft, unlike any other eyeshadows I've tried. They're not as boldly pigmented as other brands like Urban Decay, but I like this because they're easier to apply and build up to the desired amount of color. I like that the colors don't have real names, but rather their use ("prime," "enhance," "smoke," and "pop"), so it's easy to know what shade should go where if you're feeling stuck about how to use the palette. I'm seriously loving the warm shades of the Dolce Vita palette, and the cooler shades of the Fallen Angel palette are really doing it for me as well. I love both the taupe and bronze shades in the Fallen Angel palette - they're lovely colors to use in a quick single color eye look. And the Dolce Vita palette is totally swoon-worthy - just look at that reddish shade. I've been reaching for one of these almost every day, and I don't see this obsession ending any time soon.
