Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel Eyeshadow Palette
Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel Eyeshadow Palette

Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that uses a different formula than her other palettes. It is a wet/dry formula that’s supposed to have a “rich and buildable layer of color” when applied dry with “three times the color intensity and … [a] metal reflective finish” when applied damp. The palette is really easy to work with, and the four shades performed well consistently with good color payoff, soft, blendable textures, and long-wear (eight hours). It is true that the color is more buildable (or sheer-able) if you use it dry, whereas a damp brush will yield very opaque results with (seemingly) less product, though both application methods yielded richer color payoff without fuss. Ultimately, applying the shades with a dampened brush does seem to give slightly richer color with more depth and a stronger sheen, but it is a subtle difference–not three times the intensity (I think the third shade had the “biggest” difference, while the first had the least) and not all were metallic when damp. It’s a really lovely palette if you like your warmer, smokier neutrals with a lot of shimmer, but you may want to check your stash for dupes first as these were more dupable shades.

The price point on this is higher than the regular line ($65 vs. $52), while quantity also decreased (0.10 oz. vs. 0.18 oz.), and I wish it was one or the other. This type of wet/dry formula seems similar to ones like Chanel’s recent eyeshadow quads, Tom Ford’s Nude Dip quad (which is similar in color composition, too), Estee Lauder Gelees, NARS Dual Intensity, MAC Extra Dimension, and so forth, which all tended to have lower quantities compared to their traditional powder formulas, but it was more of a mixed bag with regards to whether a brand increased the price per ounce as well. For reference, the palette is the same physical size of the regular line, so visually, they don’t seem smaller.

Fallen Angel #1 is a light, golden beige with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had good color applied dry, and it was fully opaque applied damp, where it was also a bit more shimmery and brighter. The consistency was soft without being powdery and applied smoothly to the skin, while it wore well for eight hours before fading. Anastasia Blush (LE) is darker. Dior Cuir Cannage #2 (P) is similar. Charlotte Tilbury The Rebel #1 (P) is a touch cooler-toned. Stila Kitten (P) is darker. Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip #1 (LE) is very similar. Kat Von D Galore (LE) is brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Fallen Angel #2 is a golden taupe brown with a frosted, metallic finish. Applied dry, it appeared slightly warmer and a touch more muted, while applied damp gave it a smoother sheen; the differences are subtle, though. It wore well for eight hours on me. Urban Decay Resist (LE, $18.00) is darker. Laura Mercier Topaz (P) is less shimmery. MAC Quintessential (LE, $15.00) is warmer, less shimmery. Make Up For Ever D562 Taupe Platinum (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker. Sleek MakeUP Aladdin’s Lamp (LE, $9.99) is darker. Chanel Tisse Rivoli #1 (P) is darker, less shimmery, cooler-toned. YSL Saharienne #4 (P) is cooler-toned, darker. NARS Dione (P, $29.00) is more golden. Giorgio Armani #09 (P, $32.00) is darker. MAC Crushed Clove (P, $15.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Shakedown (LE, $18.00) is slightly cooler-toned. Tom Ford Beauty Platinum (LE, $42.00) is darker. Urban Decay Juju (LE, $20.00) is similar Urban Decay YDK (LE, $18.00) is slightly warmer. MAC Superwatt (LE, $21.00) is similar. bareMinerals A-Ha (P) is lighter. Inglot #402 (P, $6.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Fallen Angel #3 is a warm, bronzy brown with a metallic and reddish undertones. It was opaque both wet and dry, though it appeared slightly darker when applied damp. The color lasted well for eight hours. Cle de Peau Stellar Gaze #2 (P) is lighter, yellower. Make Up For Ever D652 Celestial Earth (P, $21.00) is more shimmery. Kat Von D Papilio (P) is less shimmery. MAC Golden Hours #1 (LE, $21.00) is yellower. Too Faced Haute Chocolate (LE, $16.00) is similar. Clarins The Essentials #7 (LE) is redder. Too Faced Brown Sugar (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery. MAC Her Cocoa #4 (LE, $15.00) is redder. MAC Divine Decadence (P, $15.00) is redder. MAC Twinks (P, $15.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Fallen Angel #4 is a medium-dark black with neutral-to-cool undertones and a soft, pearly finish. Applied dry, it had a softer look to it and was slightly less smooth and opaque compared to the damp application. This shade also lasted for eight hours before fading. Chanel Oiseaux de Nuit #4 (LE) is lighter. Make Up For Ever S102 Onyx (P, $21.00) is similar. Sleek MakeUP 1001 Nights (LE, $9.99) is more shimmery. Chanel Tisse Riviera #4 (P) is warmer. NARS Sycorax (P, $29.00) is similar. MAC Smokeluxe #5 (P) is darker. MAC Dark Dare (LE, $19.50) is darker. Estee Lauder Violet Underground #4 (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Charlotte Tilbury Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (L.S.D.) Lip Lustre
Charlotte Tilbury Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (L.S.D.) Lip Lustre

Charlotte Tilbury Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (L.S.D.) Lip Lustre ($22.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a light, peachy orange with lighter gold shimmer. MAC Water Deities (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery. NARS Bimini (P, $26.00) is lighter. MAC Ultimate Dish (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Satin Slip (LE, $20.00) is sheerer. MAC Double Happiness (P, $20.00) is lighter. Hourglass Imagine (P, $28.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It’s semi-sheer with a milkier consistency, so it doessn’t go on evenly and has a tendency to slip into lip lines and settle. Due to the way it looks on its own, I think it is better layered over a lipstick or lip liner, so you can get the shimmery, glossy finish but manage the settling. It has a fair amount of sparkle and shine, but I think it could stay glossier for longer, as it seemed to lose a lot of shine within an hour and a half of wear. The gloss wore for a total of three hours for me and was nicely hydrating while I wore it.

Charlotte Tilbury Confession Kissing Lipstick
Charlotte Tilbury Confession Kissing Lipstick

Charlotte Tilbury Confession Kissing Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, shimmery, rose gold–it’s a warmer pink with hints of peach paired fine, gold shimmer–with a soft, frosted finish. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Dune (02) (LE, $49.00) is sheerer, warmer. bareMinerals Feel the Love (LE) is less shimmery, pinker. Bobbi Brown Baby Pink (P, $26.00) is pinker. MAC Naked Proof (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery. MAC Supreme Style (LE, $17.00) is lighter. Guerlain Garance (P, $51.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It’s a new, limited edition shade for the holidays, and it’s festive in its own way. It makes me think New Year’s Eve with the shimmery finish, which makes it a bit different from some of the other beiges she has in the range. The color coverage was mostly opaque, and the consistency was lightly creamy with a light-to-medium-weight feel on the lips. It applied evenly and fairly smoothly, while the color itself lasted for four hours on me and was somewhat hydrating over time.
