Charlotte Tilbury Walk of Shame Luxury Palette

When I was in London I stopped by the Charlotte Tilbury Covent Garden store. The Walk of Shame collection just dropped (based on the Walk of Shame Matte Revolution lipstick) and since the eyeshadow palette swatched beautifully, I picked up both the lipstick and the eyeshadow quad.

The eyeshadow quad is an addition to the well known Luxury Palettes, which all contain four shades in the steps to prime, enhance, smoke and pop. This Walk of Shame quad only has shimmers and a glitter, so keep that in mind if you prefer to work with a matte as well.

Usually I like to have a palette with both shimmers and at least one light matte shade to blend with, but for this quad I don’t mind that much because I only picked it up to use the shades individually.

The shade that really makes this palette for me is the second one from the left, a red/orange/copper-ish shade. That is the kind of shade that makes my blue eyes pop so it totally lives up to the ‘enhance’ name that’s on the palette.

The Pillow Talk Luxury Palette did not have much pigmentation and intensity. It’s the kind of palette that I use when I want a soft, pink/brown eye look.

This Walk of Shame Luxury Palette has way more pigmentation though and the eyeshadow is more creamy and less powdery. As for the shades, I like to use these shades individually or maybe combine two of them. These shades are great enough in quality to use them individually. Still, the shades are not the most pigmented or intense ever. They work more for a subtle pop of color.

For this look I used the top right shade (in the quad) (enhance) on the eyelid, the bottom right shade (smoke) in the outer corner, the top left shade in the inner corner (prime) and a tiny bit of the bottom left shade (pop) in the middle of my eyelid.

I honestly don’t like the shades used together. I prefer just using either the enhance shade or the smoke shade all over the light and then lightly blended into the crease with a matte light brown shade.

In the pictures I am also wearing the Walk of Shame Matte Revolution lipstick. Such a gorgeous shade!

I have not made up my mind yet if I like to wear the lipstick together with the Luxury Palette or not. Both are gorgeous but I feel like they differ too much in undertone to be matched. However, in my look I did wear a cardigan that does something with all the colors and I did not choose my blush very carefully, because it does not match at all with the eyeshadow and lipstick. Still a pretty blush shade though :).

I will have to play around some more with the Luxury Palette and lipstick to see if they go together on my face, but for this review it doesn’t really matter.

As for the Walk of Shame Luxury Palette I was pleasantly surprised by the creaminess and pigmentation of the eyeshadows and I adore the shades, so it’s also a big hit for me!
