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.
