Charlotte Tilbury Seductive Beauty / Dolce Vita Instant Look Palette

Charlotte Tilbury Seductive Beauty Instant Look in a Palette

Charlotte Tilbury Seductive Beauty Instant Look in a Palette ($75.00 for 0.77 oz.) is a neutral-hued eye and cheek palette that features three eyeshadows and four cheek/face products. I think if you have a good arsenal of neutrals, this will be dupable for you, but they are still a nice set of neutrals that work well together and would be travel-friendly. If you prefer more mattes or less shimmery eyeshadows, though, this one may be limiting. All in all, the palette was easy to use; there was no real fuss, and the more quality-related issue I had was how soft the bronzer was, but it looked great applied, which is where it counts the most.

It is currently listed as unavailable online, but some physical stores may still have stock (really not sure, you’d have to check with your local store!). I actually think that the brand’s Instant Look palettes would be excellent permanent items – I feel like they’re a good value, travel-friendly, and seem to be a good introduction to what the brand has to offer.

Seductive Beauty (Brighten) is a light peachy-beige with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had a really soft, finely-milled consistency that was a bit loose in the pan, but it applied well to the skin and had an almost “melted” appearance on (a sort of lived-in shimmer look) that was very reflective. The pigmentation was fully opaque, and the color wore well for eight hours before creasing. The Estee Edit Riff (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Seductive Beauty (Enhance) is a medium-dark taupe-brown with subtle, warmer undertones and a frosted finish.

Seductive Beauty (Smoke) is a medium-dark bronzy brown with warm, reddish undertones and fine golden shimmer. The color payoff was rich and fully opaque, while the texture was perfectly balanced between soft and firm, dense and blendable–it was extremely easy to apply and blend out without losing intensity. On me, it wore well for eight hours. Chanel Promesse #3 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Dior Contraste Horizon #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery, warmer (95% similar).

Seductive Beauty (Bronze) is a medium, reddish tan with warm undertones and gold shimmer. The texture was very, very soft and prone to kicking up excess in the pan, and the looser consistency made it easy to get plenty of color payoff out of the powder as well. I’d recommend using a lighter hand and then applying, and if you feel like you may have gotten too much on your brush, lightly tap off the excess. It was very blendable on the skin and diffused nicely without a lot of work. I noticed subtle fading along the edges of the bronzer after eight hours of wear. Urban Decay Sesso (Bronzer) (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Laura Mercier Bronze (04) (P, $40.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

MAC Glow With It (P, $33.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Seductive Beauty (Cheek Swish) is a light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and fine, golden shimmer that gave it a luminous sheen. It had medium, buildable pigmentation (which is as described) with a soft, silky consistency that wasn’t too firm or too soft in the pan. It lasted for just over seven and a half hours on me before fading. Clinique Melon Pop (P, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). Hourglass Incandescent Electra (P, $38.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Chanel Coco Code (LE, $70.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Seductive Beauty (Cheek Pop) is a pop of light-medium, rosy coral with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque to opaque color coverage paired with a soft, lightly dusty consistency that blended out with ease and didn’t read dry or powdery on the skin. I was able to wear this shade for almost eight hours before it started to break down. Dior My Lady (003) (LE, $60.00) is cooler (95% similar). Guerlain Gold Palette #7 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Dior Precious Rocks (864) (LE, $45.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). NARS Make Believe (LE, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Seductive Beauty (Highlight) is a very light, golden peach with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that ran slightly dusty in the pan, but I didn’t notice any dryness on the skin. The highlighter wore well for eight hours on me.

It’s a new, limited edition blush that’s supposed to give a “vibrant veil of coral and fresh pink” color. It seemed to have three colors–a very light ivory, coral, and a light-medium pink with a thin, somewhat chalky feel. There was a general dryness, and it seemed to sit on the surface of the skin without melding with it as well as other Dior blushes/highlighters have in the past. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage. I think it will work best for fairer skin tones, as the white base may turn ashy on deeper skin tones (I did not find it flattering on me, and I am light-medium to medium due to the stronger white base color). It lasted for seven hours on me before fading.

Anastasia Vegas (LE, ) is darker, cooler (80% similar). MAC Blazing Haute (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The formula is supposed to be pigmented, long-wearing, and blendable (for more on how it compares to the previous formula, check out this post). While it is part of the blush range, it could also be used as a bronzer, as it will (obviously!) add warmth to the skin. The texture was finely-milled with a silky, smooth feel to the touch, which translated into easier application and blending on the skin. It had excellent pigmentation, but that softer consistency made it versatile and more buildable depending on how much you applied. The reformulated version is slightly darker and richer than the original shade. The blush wore well for just over eight hours on me when I tried it out.

Makeup Geek Desire Blush ($10.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a deep, reddish plum with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. Bite Beauty Biscotti (P, $24.00) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). Anastasia Blackberry (LE, ) is darker, cooler (90% similar). LORAC Infrared (P, $23.00) is warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever S502 (P, $23.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Chanel Plum Attraction (LE, $45.00) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The formula is supposed to be pigmented, long-wearing, and blendable (for more on how it compares to the previous formula, check out this post). It had good pigmentation that was mostly opaque to begin with, but it would be fully opaque in a layer and a half. The consistency was soft, smooth, and silky to the touch, which was fantastic to find, as it helped make this shade blendable on the skin. Despite the intensity and richness of the shade, it was easy to work with and diffuse on the skin. If you are fairer, you may want to use a feathery brush and very light hand, but it is forgiving enough that it can be sheered out if over-applied. When wore at less-than-opaque coverage, it tended to look pinker rather than red/plum. This shade lasted for nine hours on me before fading.

Anastasia Sweets Glow Kit

Anastasia Sweets Glow Kit
Anastasia Sweets Glow Kit

Anastasia Sweets Glow Kit ($40.00 for 1.04 oz.) includes four sparkling, metallic highlighters in a cardboard palette. It’s new and limited edition, and it is also exclusive to the brand’s website. As you might expect with the Glow Kit, it’s not for someone who only likes a subtle highlighter; it is most suitable for someone who likes bright, bold, sparkling, and/or metallic highlighters. For some skin tones, three of the four shades may also work as luminous blushes. Sassy Grape and Butterscotch have larger sparkle/glittery flecks in them, while Marshmallow and Taffy are smoother and have a finer shimmer overall. All four shades were pretty pigmented, wore for eight to nine hours, and were blendable on the skin, but all four did emphasize the texture of my skin; Marshmallow I could apply without emphasis if I was careful, but the other three still added texture to the skin even when applied sheer.

As a note, two shades–Sassy Grape and Butterscotch–showed part of the powder lifting away from the edges. I dropped my palette a few times onto hardwood from 2-3 feet, and it didn’t seem to get any worse; then I pressed the powder together with my fingers and repeated dropping it, and they didn’t re-separate. However, I have seen almost a dozen photos of people receiving their Sweets kit with shades entirely broken (often Butterscotch, sometimes Sassy Grape or both). From what I have read, nobody has had an issue with Anastasia replacing and resending a palette.

Marshmallow is a bright, white gold with a cooler, whitish base and warmer, pale gold shimmer. It had good color payoff with a smooth, blendable texture that was soft without being too loose in the pan. It worked well with feathery brushes like a fan brush as well as more traditional blush or highlighter brushes. The color wore well for eight hours on me. J. Cat Beauty White Goddess (-, $9.00) is more muted (95% similar). Becca Pearl Flashes Gold (LE, $34.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Stardust (01) (P, $14.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Makeup Revolution Golden Lights (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

LORAC Daylight (P, $23.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Anastasia Summer (LE, ) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sassy Grape is a medium, pinky-plum with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The pigmentation was mostly opaque, while the texture was metallic and highly reflective on the skin. It did emphasize my skin’s natural texture noticeably when worn all-over the cheeks, and when I tried it as a barely-there highlighter, I still had a little bit of emphasis, but it was not as noticeable. The powder itself was looser in the pan, though soft and blendable. It wore well for eight hours on me. Colour Pop Angel Food (P, $8.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Cover FX Blossom (LE, $34.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Becca Amethyst Flashes Geode (LE, $34.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar).

Butterscotch is a bright, light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. This shade has a very intense, reflective finish on the skin with barely any product as it is very pigmented. It has some noticeable sparkle that sits on the skin, and the more metallic finish paired with the denser, thicker consistency overall did result in emphasis of pores/skin texture for me. I think that it does reflect so much light that the emphasis wasn’t as noticeable as you might expect it to be. The color wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading. Anastasia White Sand (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Authentic (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Taffy is a slightly muted, medium-dark rosy copper with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had rich color payoff with a smooth, blendable texture that felt almost cream-like to the touch. Though it wasn’t as sparkly as Butterscotch, it had a high-shine finish that reflected a lot of light and had some mild emphasis of skin texture/pores on my skin. This shade lated for almost nine hours before fading. Looxi Beauty Valley Girl (P, $7.50) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). Maybelline Barely Pink (202) (LE, $8.99) is less shimmery (90% similar). Fenty Beauty Ginger Binge (P, $34.00) is darker (90% similar).

This is one of five new blush shades being added to the permanent range, but worth noting is that they are being added as a Small Powder Blush (the same size as MAC’s eyeshadows). I’m not sure if it will be available in pan-form or not (my guess is yes, since it is permanent) at this time. The formula is the same as their regular Powder Blush range, though, other than the size (and price). The new five are supposed to be pigmented with an even, smooth texture. Bright Response had fantastic color payoff that could easily be worn at true-to-pan intensity, but it had a softer, lightly dense texture that was really easy to work with on the skin, as it blended out beautifully. The texture produced a gorgeous sheen that didn’t emphasize pores and became more and more glowing as I diffused and buffed the powder on my skin. This shade lasted for eight hours on me.
