This morning, celebrity make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury took us by surprise with the release of a new limited-edition eye palette. Now, here’s the thing, Tilbury’s products have been known to vanish quickly – so fast that her Instant Eye palette sold out in under 24-hours – and we expect the same fate for this latest release.
Aptly called Stars In Your Eyes (£60), the new luminous 12-shade palette is made with actual diamond powder. Clustered into groups of three shadows – named Love Eyes, Powder Eyes, Happy Eyes and Confident Eyes – that contain a primer, an enhancer and a smokey shade. Designed to be built up, these shadows can be easily layered for a daytime or a dramatic look.
With rose quartz and date night on the mood board, the Love Eyes cluster includes a matte cream shade, an iridescent rose gold and a smokey terracotta. With echoes of the cult Pillow Talk palette, it’s warm rose tone create, according to the press release, ‘a strong energetic connection the heart chakra’.
Stepping it up the Power Eyes shadows gild the eyes with warm metallic tones, like bronze and gold. For the year-round holiday glow the Happy Eye swatches have a light-reflecting pink copper base and warm amber top tones.
I especially love the Confident Eyes with it's base of glinting pink and warm plum notes, which can be swished on dry or with a damp brush for amore potent colour payoff.
Hello party season, I'm now ready for you now.
