It is no secret that one of my favourite beauty brands is Charlotte Tilbury. Over the last six months or so you will have seen a few of her products featured on here whereby today I am back with another. In the past I have featured the Dolce Vita Palette alongside the Fallen Angel Palette as well as her beautiful lipstick Bitch Perfect. Having now three of the eye shadow quads from Charlotte Tilbury I have to say that they are some of my favourites, they are all (the ones I have tried at least) buttery soft and blend beautifully; I have yet to find a fault with any of them.
The next palette I wished to feature on my blog today is The Rock Chick Palette which was one that I won from Jordan a little while ago, I owe a huge thank you to Jordan because this palette is one that I enjoy using immensely; it is gorgeous!
By now you all probably know the drill when it comes to these palettes but for those of you that don’t I’ll sum it up for briefly. Basically all of the Charlotte Tilbury quads have a prime, enhance, smoke and pop shade which is summarised on the back of the palette. By following them in that specific order you can create a perfect smoky eye with an extra pop of colour to it; call it the grand finale of the eye shadow world.
Enter The Rock Chick in which the prime shade in this quad is of course the lightest shade, this to me is somewhat of a grey/beige toned champagne which is utterly beautiful. Despite it being light this isn’t the type of shade I personally would want to use for highlighting the brow bone, it is too dark for me. Having said that it does make a beautiful base in which to begin creating your desired look, it is also very pretty on its own too. The second shade which is the enhance shade is quite comfortably my favourite shade in the quad. This is a medium toned taupe brown with somewhat of a pearlescent sheen to it, I think it is that added factor which makes it stand out more to me than any other shade like this.
The darkest shade in the quad is that of the smoke shade which is dark brown, although I would argue that it verges very close to the grey side of things. I have read a few reviews which seem to think this shade in particular isn’t as pigmented as the others but I would firmly disagree, I think it is perfectly fine and that it is equal to the others within the quad. This really is the shade that you want to use should you wish to really smoke out your look, it is beautiful but is one to use with a light hand because you don’t need much at all. Finally there is the pop shade which I think is very similar in shade to that of the enhance shade only with added glitter to it. The texture of this is different to the others as it feels glossy I guess yet applies just as well, the added factor of the glitter does not make this any rougher as in keeping with the quality of all of the shades it is soft and easy to blend. Having said that there is an element of fall out with this shade although this is something I can overlook; in all honesty in my experience it has not been too bad at all.
In terms of longevity and pigmentation on a whole, I can but say that I have been nothing short of impressed with The Rock Chick. Like all of the Charlotte Tilbury quads this is encased within the dark brown and rose gold packaging and retails at £38. Once again I feel incredibly happy with the quality of this eye shadow quad; it really does seem as though Charlotte Tilbury can do no wrong.
At the end of December last year I voted for Charlotte Tilbury to be my brand of the year, I truly loved everything at the time and continue to this day to reach for her products on a daily basis. It goes without saying that I cannot wait for her collaboration with Norman Parkinson in early July to be released, it looks incredible!
