Charlotte Tilbury | Instant Look In A Palette – Beauty Glow Review


Have a browse through any beauty blog lately, I guarantee you will find posts raving about Charlotte Tilbury. I have been meaning to try the brand for quite some time and found the perfect product to start my collection. If like me, you are yet to try some Charlotte Tilbury products, carry on reading because you will love this palette.

Charlotte Tilbury – Instant Look In A Palette Beauty Glow

When I found this palette online the first thing that caught my eye was how nice the colours are. Usually, I find that there are sometimes a few colours in a palette that I know I will never use. Upon using this palette I was really impressed with how gorgeous each of the shades are. The second thing that caught my attention was how perfect this palette is for travel. I always struggle to travel lightly but this will help to save space when packing cosmetics. This palette fits in the palm of my hand, yet the size of each pan is still adequate.


This is marketed as a ‘5-minute face on the go’ palette. I feel this is achievable and this palette provides everything you need, so you save time searching through your collection for different products. I also find this the perfect all in one palette. Whether you are on holiday or simply want to transform your makeup from day to a night time look, just keep this in your bag!


Inside the palette are seven different pans. They are all numbered and each state where you use the product on your face and what the product does. I love that if you use the whole palette you have a full face of makeup in one palette. Or you can use a couple of the items and create a really nice natural look.

1.  Eye » Brighten

This shade is a gorgeous, shimmery, very subtle pink. Really nice on it’s own or as a base.

2.  Eye » Enhance

This shadow is a deeper, warmer shade than the first colour. It is a shimmery champagne shade that adds dimension to the eyelid. These shadows could be worn on their own or you can use the next shade to define the eye.

3.  Eye » Smoke

This is a matte taupe shade, it has a very smooth formula and is very pigmented. You can use it lightly to define the eye or create a deeper smokey eye.

4. Face » Bronze

This bronzer is defined by Charlotte Tilbury as an all skin tone bronze colour. Personally, I’m not quite sure if this would work for everyone. When I swatch this the products looks quite light but it does make a very nice natural bronze look. Maybe this is better for an everyday quick look rather than a more sculpted night time look. I have found I still tend to use my Benefit Hoola bronzer as i find it quicker to apply it and it’s a bit darker.

5. Cheek » Swish 

This blush is a tea rose shade, it is really easy to blend out creating a nice healthy glow.

6.  Cheek » Pop

This blush is more of a pure pink compared to the previous one. This shade creates a nice natural glow.

7.  Face » Highlight 

This highlighter is described as Candlelight for the skin by Charlotte Tilbury. It is a really nice natural highlight. The other ones I own are really pigmented and it is obvious you are wearing it. Whereas this is just enough to create a pop without it being obvious.

When I first used the palette I was really impressed with the quality and pigmentation of the shades. The formula of the products are really smooth and easy to apply and blend. I have found that the shades last all day without have to retouch. There are a couple of different versions of this palette and they cost £49. I believe this is a fair price point for a high-end brand. When you consider that you are getting a whole face of products in one palette this is actually a really good price. Overall I am pleased with this product and definitely will be trying more from Charlotte Tilbury in future.
