Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette Swatches & Reviews

CT-instantlook -in-a-palette

It’s not easy to get this palette because of the high demand which made Beautylish out of stock a few minutes after it launched. I ordered it from the counter in Nordstrom and received this palette after several days.

I am quite happy that I got this palette because I can’t stop using it these days.This instant look in a palette is a multiple function one, which contains three eyeshadow shades, two blush shades, one highlighter and one bronzer. Also, those shades have been marked on the surface for their use.

The official description said that by using this palette, you could complete your makeup in 5 minutes, which I think is an over praise. Since many people needs more time on their brows or foundations.

Anyway, here’s a brief swatch on my inside arm:

之前Beautylish出购买链接的时候我就慢了一点点就断货了,我只好去Nordstorm的柜台登记了一下让BA给我寄到家里。不过好在是买到了,因为收到之后每天我都在用这一盘,完全停不下来。这个盘子是个综合盘,里面有三格眼影,两格腮红,一格高光和一格bronzer(抱歉我觉得修容不准确就直接用了英文)。上面也标注了每格的功用,号称五分钟可以打造一个妆容。我觉得这个有点夸张,因为毕竟上粉和眉毛比这盘子的几个费时多了。我还简单给它拍了一组手臂试色:

The pigment of three eyeshadow shade are premium, which I believe has reached the top quality on the market. The colours in general suit all skin tones, also are natural and practical. No.1 is a matte pinky nude shade, has a lightening effect on the eyelid. While the No.2 is a shimmer brown colour and looks beautiful with only one swipe by a blending brush. However No.3 doesn’t show its colour entirely on my eyelid. But I still use it to deepen the outer corner of my eye or even use it as an natural eyeliner, which made my eyes open instantly.

The blush shades are also pigmented and contain a little bit shimmer. No.5 is a orangy neutral pink. No.6 is a baby pink. Personally  I use No.5 as a base blush then blend a small amount of No.6, or mix them together, which both look good on the skin.

三格眼影色粉质都很细腻,算是欧美系产品的顶级。颜色总体来说不挑肤色,自然实用,其中1号打底色是亚光裸粉,上眼有一点点提亮效果;2号enhance色是一个带闪的珠光棕色,轻轻扫一下眼皮非常好看;3号smoke色显色度一般,我一般都是加深一下眼尾顺便当眼线,虽然颜色看起来很普通但是眼睛一下就有了放大的感觉。两格腮红粉质很细,都有很细小的珠光,5号是偏橘色的裸粉,6号是很嫩的粉红色,我个人用是5号打底然后晕染一点点6号或者两个颜色混擦,效果都很好,然而我并没有单用过6号(个人审美问题)。

Next here are the bronzer and highlighter shades swatches:

It’s said that these shades has more than 95% similarities with CT’s famous Film star bronze & glow palette. However I never use it before so I can’t compare them by myself. After using these two shades I think I should go and grab the Film star palette because they are sooo good. The bronzer colour has very natural effect on my face and blends like a dream. You can’t see any bronze edge or contour mark but still get the slim face effect. 

The highlighter shade has a light gold tone which melt into skin beautiful and really has a instant highlight effect, which I believe more shiny than the Cle de Peau #11 highlighter, and lasts longer than Cle de Peau.

据说这两个颜色和CT的当家产品修容高光盘相似度有95%以上,我没用过,但是用了这两个颜色决定等再用一用就去入一个修容高光盘来用。bronzer色虽然偏棕黄但是上脸特别自然好晕染,基本没有什么修容痕迹,修颜效果非常好,我用这个和朋友吃饭被说脸小了,毕竟我脸又胖又有双下巴,所以特别开心。高光色偏淡金,粉质也算是欧美系最好的,上脸可以和肤色完美融合而且效果拔群,我觉得比cpb还要闪耀。持妆几个小时不会像cpb有点浮起来,这点我非常喜欢。

A short summary: 

If you like natural makeup and want to try CT’s product first, I think you won’t regret buy this palette.

总之,如果喜欢欧美系彩妆平时妆容比较自然系的,想尝试CT的产品,我觉得入这盘不会失望。
