First of all, I am in love with Desert Haze, which is Charlotte Tilbury’s newest Color-Coded Eyeshadow Luxury Palette. One reason is, the Luxury Palette is an all matte quad. This is the second all matte luxury quad in the collection. The first matte quad , the Sophisticate, is more cool toned, with cream, tan, taupe and chocolate shades. Furthermore, Desert Haze is truly a summer eyeshadow quad. The reason is, this quad has warm tones. In addition, the shades are nude, peach and smoky brown hues. Therefore, you’ll be able to create summer sunrise and sunset looks. Although, you can create summer looks in the fall and winter, too! Along with the Eyeshadow Palette, there is also a new matte airbrushed bronzer. (That’s for another day!)
Right now you can find the Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette of Mattes in Desert Haze on Charlotte Tilbury’s Website. In the US, I wasn’t able to find it elsewhere. In addition, the Palette ( 4g / 0.14 oz.) costs $53.
Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Matte Palette Desert Haze Packaging
First, the packaging is the signature Charlotte Tilbury case
. Also, the case has a pull up, and push down ( until you hear it click closed) closure. Inside, one one side, the case includes a full-sized mirror. On the other side of the mirror are the four eyeshadow pans. The pans are accented with rose gold.
Each eyeshadow is labeled : Prime, Enhance, Smoke, and Pop. These labels describe the purpose of each shadow.. Although, the shadows do not have names. Last, the palettes are quads. Even more, they are not large. In fact, they are quite small for $53! You can find the number order on the back of the outer box, and on back of the compact.
Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Matte Color-Coded Eyeshadow Quad in Desert Haze How To Apply The Shades
And, all you need to do is follow Charlotte’s steps. And, the steps have numbers, 1-4, that tell you now to apply the shadows. Even more, instead of names, the shadows give you their job on the back of the palette, and on the back of the outer box. One is Prime. Two is Enhance. Three is Define and Four is Smoke. I am pretty sure you all know what they mean, and what to do with them.
The Formula For the Matte Color-Coded Luxury Palette Desert Haze
To begin with, the shades are formulated with powder coating technology. In other words, the technology begins where the pigments are coated in a mix of silicones and emollients. First, this allows for superior color payoff. Furthermore, this gives the shades their velvety-liquid feel. Ultimately, this formula allows for an extra-smooth application. Moreover, the shades, like the new Airbrushed Bronzers, are airbrushed-like colors that seamlessly blend together. Last, the buildable shades have a deep intensity.
The Desert Haze Luxury Matte Color-Coded Palette Shades
First, #1 Prime, a soft muted nude shade, has a matte finish. Use an eyeshadow brush, and pick up the muted nude shade. Then, apply the nude Prime shade all over your eyelids, and up to your brow bone. The reason for this is to prime the eye for eyeshadow. Also, put this light nude shade in the corners of your eyes. In this way, the nude shade acts as a highlighter, too!
Next, #2 Enhance, a warm, sun-blushed peach shade, has a matte finish. First, use a shadow brush, and pat the peach shade all over your eyelids. Then, switch to a liner brush, and line your lower lash line with the peach shade.
Then, # 3 Smoke, a russet terracotta-brown shade, has a matte finish. Use this shade to create a smoky eye. First, put the smoke shade on the outer part of your eyelids, and on the outer corners of your eyes. Then, take your brush and smoke the color out.
Finally, # 4 Define, a deep reddish-brown shade, has a matte finish. Wear this shade in your crease, the outer corners of your eyes, and on the outer part of your lower lash lines. In this way, you are creating definition for your eyes.
Final Thoughts On The Charlotte Tilbury Color-Coded Luxury Palette of Mattes in Desert Haze……
First of all, this is a gorgeous summer palette. Also, I am thrilled with the shades in this palette. They go together so well. And, the define shade seems to pull all the other shades together.
Also, the pigments feel really velvety. Even more, there was no fallout. Also, I like that there are only four shades to work with. Therefore, I didn’t have to worry about what goes with what. Instead, I love these Color-Coded Palettes. It is almost like Charlotte is applying them on you. In other words, color-coded is a no brainer!!!! love that!
