Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita Eyeshadow Palette: Review, Swatches, FOTD




I had heard good things about the Charlotte Tilbury makeup line, so when Indigo Kir Royale told me that she was going to pick up a few things from Selfridges, I jumped at the chance to do a combined order (haul post here).

The Dolce Vita palette ( £38.00) is inspired by  screen sirens Sophia Loren, Monica Belluci, and Penelope Cruz,  featuring rich burgundy and golden shades that I love wearing in autumn. It is quite a versatile palette if you have a few neutral mattes on hand- you can do a bold editorial styled volcanic smoky eye (a la Gucci S/S 2014), a soft rosy eye look, or a garden variety warm bronzey eye (like I did below).


Apart from the glittery copper shade, the 3 other shades in the palette have a lovely buttery texture and blend easily. The glittery shade has a hard texture that is difficult to pick up with a brush- it is  best applied by pressing it on the lid with a finger.


Longevity is not amazing. I find that the eyeshadows in this palette do have a tendency to fade after about 5 hours unless I build up the colour with multiple layers- I would recommend priming well before applying to ensure all day wear. Disappointing, but not a deal breaker for me.

Top right: bold rusty burgundy in a shimmery metallic finish and full pigmentation.

Bottom right: khaki brown with subtle gold shimmer and medium buildable to full pigmentation.

Bottom left:  Copper glitter on a transparent base. I was hoping that this shade would be more pigmented/ dense (like a pressed version of Illamasqua Ore)
