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.

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. Sephora Costa Rica (P, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Laura Mercier Bronze (04) (P, $40.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Dior Blush Bronze (PiP, ) is darker (90% similar).

Stila Sending My Love Bronzer (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (85% 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). Marc Jacobs Beauty Lines & Last Night (502) (P, $42.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Hourglass Diffused Heat (P, $35.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Surratt Beauty Parfait (P, $32.00) is darker, warmer (85% 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. Gucci Beauty Coral Flower (P, $49.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). Guerlain Gold Palette #7 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Dior My Lady (003) (LE, $60.00) is cooler (95% similar). Dior Precious Rocks (864) (LE, $45.00) is lighter, warmer (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.

This palette looks beautiful and it definitely gives you an healthy look!
I enjoy the natural version which came some months back -best impulsive buy ever- so much it became my go-to in the morning when I really need to look pulled together and fresh in 5-10 min or when I need to travel light.

I’m surprised there is no information about the seductive palette to be found in Europe… but I will keep my eyes open!

I think it’s the same palette as I have tgis palette. I bought mine in the UK several months back when it launched and I believe it’s permanent. I’m glad this scored so highly as I think this is a great palette.

They are different palettes – I have both Natural Beauty and Seductive Beauty, and they are not the same palette. They’re both neutral palettes, but they didn’t just rename it. I don’t see the Natural Beauty palette on Charlotte Tilbury’s website (US or UK), and I know it was listed as LE for the U.S. 🙂 Hope that helps!

Noooooooooooo I can’t believe I didn’t realise! I just saw it and thought I have that. I will be stalking the Nordstrom site now to see if it comes back in stock! 😮

I actually wore this palette today. For being a medium skin tone (NC30) This looks very natural on me. I was hoping it would give a more dramatic look than the first palette but it hasn’t really. Maybe I just need to apply more… Both palettes give me a very natural look, which is great, but if I took these two when traveling I feel like I would still need another quad or something for a night time look. I agree that these should both be permanent items. BTW, the mascara that came with the palette is pretty good!

I think I threw away the mascara inadvertently… as in I did not realize there was mascara in the box until I looked at images of the back of the palette that mentioned mascara!

You probably didn’t throw it away. I ordered one and my mascara was not in the box. They sent me a new set and I will be getting it tomorrow, so hopefully it’s in the box this time.

At first glance, I thought this is too light for me and wouldn’t have enough pigment but then the swatches proved me wrong. It packs quite a punch of color. Very nice.

off topic but I was wondering if you would be reviewing Nordstrom’s MAC look I’m a box sets, or just a quick take. I’m sure mostly dupe-able like most things though wpuld still love to get your take

When MAC was really, really popular, it made sense (financially), as the kits would often sell out, but the last few years when I did buy the Nordstrom exclusives, it was very quiet and just didn’t end up being worth the time + money (in lieu of something else!). Thank you for understanding! 🙂

I picked up Sunblessed and Sassy Siren and I think they are great values – you get quite a bit of product (full sized llipstick, eyeliner or fluidline, eyeshadow, mascara and a little zip pouch) and they are good quality (the shadows aren’t dry or gritty like some have been in past limited edition palette kits). The 2 kits I picked up have lipsticks in the Amplified finish and that’s why I got them – I would have gotten Girl Band Glam and Downtown Diva also but the (gorgeous) lipsticks were mattes and my lips turn into raisins. I loved the colors, though. The Fun & Flirty kit has a lipglass instead of eyeshadow, I think. I didn’t pick it up because they weren’t my colors and don’t care for lipglasses. I am very pleased with the 2 that I got and highly recommend!

Aww! A- I am in serious trouble.. .Do not own a travel all-in-one-palette and this one seems to be perfect. I just wish it will be permanent, it would be a nice Christmas gift!

Thanks so much for your review, Christine. I was curious to see the swatches and how this palette differs from the Natural Beauty palette. My palette arrives on Wednesday and I can’t wait to try it out. I do expect these palettes to be permanent at some point and they are very handy for a quick makeup application or to grab and go when traveling.

I love the idea of a compact all in one face palette but the price here in Canada will likely be outrageous (also, I’m so not someone who needs both a peachy and pinky blush) so I’ll make do with the dupes I have. Christine, do you recall what liner you have under your lower lashes? As pretty as the whole look is, THAT liner is the star (well, so is your lovely face but of the makeup…)

Christine, you look so pretty!

I bought this palette during the pre-sale, and I like it much better than the previous Natural version. I’m about an NC-15, and that one didn’t hardly show up on me! I ended up returning it. The colors in this one are deeper and warmer, so I think it works much better on me. I’m glad it got a good rating, too.

P.S. The lighter color in the Charlotte Tilbury eye pencil duo set is a total glitter bomb, FYI. The darker brown pencil was very nice, but I couldn’t deal with all the glitter in the other pencil. It got in my contacts and all over my face. I returned it.

Exactly! I really wish more brands had things like this… and permanent. I feel like UD’s Naked palette is a great intro to the brand (even though it’s just eyes, but UD has been known for eyes for awhile), so things like that and this make so much sense to me to offer regularly.

This is gorgeous, but I hate all the ‘limited edition’ hype designed to whip everyone up into a frenzy and ‘buy before it’s gone’. I really hope Charlotte Tilbury doesn’t turn into MAC in that respect. I like her products, but I shall dig my heels in when it comes to the whole ‘panic buy’ mentality.

On the upside, it did last a lot longer than I thought it would! It even stayed in stock past the public start of the sale, lol!

Nice little palette! Perfect for taking on business trips or casual vacays where one won’t be doing heavier, more made up looks. Yes, this OUGHT to be made permanent!

Hi Faye,

It sold out sometime on Sunday but was available on Saturday (two days ago). As I mentioned in my review, it may still be in some stores, but unfortunately, I forgot to change shipping to expedited when I placed my order and it did not arrive until late last week so this was as fast as I could review. I’m very sorry!

I like the idea aith this palette, it’s not new, but it seems really well thought out. I might try to get it, or I’ll just take the photos for some inspiration.
I don’t have much from CT, I think just a lip/blush stick and an eyepencil. This would, as you mentioned, be a good introduction.

I think everything coordinates well! I do wish this and the other one they came out with were permanent (and they could use at least two more – something much darker with respect to cheek colors and something cool-toned).

Lovely palette for travelling and I especially like the swish blush, adds such a healthy glow but I already have similar products so won’t be purchasing.

This would be an awesome kit for travel (esp. business travel) or touch ups at the desk. I think she really nailed the colors, in that it will be very flattering on many people. Hope she makes it permanent.

This is a beautiful all in one cheek and eye palette, one of the very few that I like. The colours are gorgeous and pretty universal. It all looks lovely on you Christine.

You know it’s not your colors when you have only 2 dupes, from mega palettes, out of a bazillion dupes for seven shades. Nonetheless, it is gorgeous and easily appreciated. Agree with Erin on the warmth, and corals….everyone’s favorite but mine. Also agree with Mariella. Good Karma. Yes! There is always a good takeaway from temptalia. I love the idea of these, hope they issue more, and make some perm. If these were fashion it yourself palettes from existing shades, it would be heaven, but not practical for companies.

It kept going in and out of stock on Nord’s site on Sunday, but I managed to order one. I am so bummed that I missed out on the original. I’m really hoping this can be my go-to travel palette (but who am I kidding, I’d be shocked if I actually traveled with just this for my face color..

How does the bronzer/highlighter compare to the original Film Star palette or the 1st full face palette?

I’m shocked at the quality! I usually steer clear of full face palettes because of lack thereof, however I’m really impressed! This could be great for travelling during work/fun or even a gift for a friend whose just starting makeup.

That is a lovely, lovely palette. Very user friendly and super-flattering (very CT). I don’t have any dupes but I’m happy why what I’ve already got, this doesn’t give me the OMG I have to get it feeling lol.

Let me start by saying you look beautiful Christine! I love your look. I was lucky enough to purchase this pallet on day 1 of the anniversary sale. So glad I picked it up. Now I’m off to buy Honey Bear – your lipstick ties the look together beautifully!

Wow I wish I’d bought this, I truly didn’t expect it to be good – CT is so hit or miss it seems. It seems like a pretty perfect travel palette or for when you’re in a rush at home.

Hi Christine! I really appreciate your site. We have similar coloring, so looking at your photos is almost like trying on a product. I have a few questions about this item/review: are the bronze and glow the same as the original film star bronze & glow? They look different, but have the same name. Also, you list Lorac spotlight as a dupe for this bronzer. I got that color in a palette, and I’m wondering whether you would actually wear that as a bronzer. Is it too shimmery? Thank you and happy holidays!

No, I don’t think that they are the same. I like shimmer, and I prefer a more shimmery bronzer myself – so yes, I would wear it as a bronzer! 🙂
