Charlotte Tilbury "The Sophisticate" Quad (Review)
When the Charlotte Tilbury makeup line came out not so long ago I fell hard. The sleek packaging, the beautiful shades and the countless reviews I read made me want it all. I only caved to buy one product when it first launched and I really need to get back onto the Selfridges website to expand my collection because the one thing I did buy, the Charlotte Tilbury The Sophisticate palette, is sheer perfection. It's a completely matte, neutral palette with all you need to create a beautifully contoured smokey eye and it is used with most of my looks in one way or another. Recently, I have found that my main use for this is as a brow palette. Not it's intended use of course, but it is a perfect combination of colours that looks natural in the brows and I love it!
I get so many compliments on my brows from you guys and it's all down to this baby and the Zoeva 317 Winged Liner brush. Neither of which are used for their intended purpose, but fuck it! I guess I'm just a rebel like that. (I kid.) I use the bottom left shade all the way through my brows and then deepen up the arch with the bottom right shade. I also take the top left shade as a highlight most of the time! This palette is a perfect all rounder, it has the right combination of shades to aide in every makeup look. It can be used for an all matte eye, to carve out a contour, for brows, to set kohl liner etc etc. The list goes on. Not to mention, the top right shade is the absolute perfect transition shade! I think that everyone needs one decent matte palette in their collection and this one just does it for me. Doesn't hurt that the packaging screams glamour!
