Growing collection alert: Charlotte Tilbury is launching new additions to their Pillow Talk Collection – an Eyeshadow Palette & a Blush Palette – on Thursday, 9.06! The eyeshadow palette features four shades, including two shimmers and two mattes. The blush also includes two shades, with the full collection costing a whopping $93! Unfortunately, we still don’t have prices for the individual items included in this newest phase of the collection yet, but stay tuned!
So I totally get that I think the whole point of this line is supposed to be fairly nude and natural, right? I take it that’s what the “pillow talk” theme entails. But these are kind of just uninspiring, ya know? Each of the eyeshadow shades in the palette vary so minimally in shade and tone that there is really one one eye look it seems that you could truly create with it… and even that one look would be fairly one-dimensional, considering the lack of contrast and depth available in this shade selection.
The colors are truly beautiful, but leave a bit to be desired in combination with one another. The same can be said for the blush – another beautiful peachy nude shade, but nothing we haven’t seen before. I’m a bit unsure about the center shade, however. It looks like both the pinky portion and the lighter, center portion are shimmery, but perhaps you can isolate the center shade to use as a highlight? Or swirl it all together for one blush shade? We’ll let you know once we figure it out! But for now, we are left a bit underwhelmed. Plus, you know CT isn’t cheap, so these will both surely run you a pretty penny! We’re just not sure they are different enough to add anything new to our collection or prove to be worth the price tag.
