Stars In Your Eyes

Charlotte Tilbury Stars In Your Eyes 12-Pan Eye Palette ($75.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette for the holidays that is broken into four “looks” with three shades featured in each. I was impressed by this palette, as the mattes were fantastic–pigmented, creamy, and blendable–and most of the shimmers performed well, though a couple seemed on the sheerer side (but the brand’s official swatches showed every shade was opaque).

The shade range is certainly something we’ve seen before, and it’s release alongside Urban Decay’s Naked Cherry invites immediately comparison, but the Stars in Your Eyes is still a bump up in price, even if it is significantly better in performance. As I’ve said in the past, I always welcome high-quality products, even if they seem “done” for those of us who have indulged already or who have been here for awhile.

Love Eyes (Prime)

Love Eyes (Prime) is a soft beige with subtle, warm yelklow undertones and a matte finish. It had rich color coverage with a smooth, velvety texture that was lightly creamy and more substantial, so it actually applied with full coverage and didn’t sheer out too readily (one could also use less for a sheerer effect). It lasted nicely for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Love Eyes (Enhance)

Love Eyes (Enhance) is a light-medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a golden, metallic finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque and adhered evenly to bare skin. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and denser but not too thick nor was it stiff in the pan. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

Love Eyes (Smoke) is a medium, muted coral with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had rich pigmentation that adhered evenly and smoothly to bare skin, while the consistency was soft, slightly dusty but quite blendable, and finely-milled. This shade stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably on me.

Power Eyes (Prime)

Power Eyes (Prime) is a light-medium gold with strong, warm orange undertones and a frosted finish. It had sheer color payoff that needed an eyeshadow primer/base and/or to be used with a dampened brush to look more true-to-pan in color and coverage. The texture was slightly dusty in the pan, but I managed to apply it with minimal fallout, and I was able to build it up enough where it worked well enough on the brow bone as a highlighting shade as it gave a noticeable sheen and the lack of coverage was less noticeable. It lasted well for seven and a half hours on me before it started to fade.

Eye Shadow Ingredients: Talc, Mica, Dimethicone, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Zinc Stearate, Polybutene, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Hexylene Glycol, Diamond Powder, Tocopherol, Lecithin, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Glyceryl Stearate, Glyceryl Oleate, Citric Acid, Tin Oxide, [+/- Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499)].

Power Eyes (Enhance)

Power Eyes (Enhance) is a soft, yellow gold with warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had more fleck-like sparkle to it, which I find adheres better to the lid and has less fallout than more rounded glitter/sparkle. The consistency was lightly creamy, a little “wet” to the touch, but it was still a powder eyeshadow that yielded sheerer coverage and needed to be used with a dampened brush for maximum impact. I was able to build it up a bit and press it on with a fingertip where it had medium to semi-opaque coverage and wore well for eight hours with slight fallout over time.

Is it just me or are there seemingly endless releases of rosy/pinky/purpley palettes these days? There’s nothing special or unique about this one and the price is bloated. Yawn.

Sorry, I’m having a bad day at work and I’m taking out my frustrations on eyeshadow. 😉

Nope, not just you and I’m yawning with you! Ever since ABH’s Modern Renaissance, this has been the trend. It’s one reason I was so glad to see the “Sultry” palette – but for one coral colour, the rest of it is not a repeat of what we’ve been seeing for 2 or more years….

I am unsure how I feel about this palette. In the past, Charlotte Tilbury shadows, and I only have one quad, just didn’t perform well for me. They were easy to over blend and end up looking muddy. I was so excited to get that first quad because everyone raved about the quality. I then picked up a couple of her creme eye shadows and found that they didn’t last on my eyes. I love the colour story here, I am not getting the UD Cherry palette and this has received good reviews. Do I need it, probably not but a part of me wants to try something else from Charlotte Tilbury. I have quite a few of her lipsticks across all finishes and my daughter swears by Film Star Bronze and Glow. I am probably going to hold off a little and think about it.

Love how it seems to “marry” enough elements from both UD Naked Cherry and Naked Heat to make a “baby” from it! Catch is, like most of us who have larger stashes, I know I have a dupe for each shade. Perhaps more than one per shade even. Still, this palette has them all tucked into ONE place!

I’m ordering this during the Sephora sale. I love a lot of CT. I have 2 quads of hers, hit pan on all the shadows in them. Almost finished. Have gone through 2 of her pressed powders, lipsticks & eye & lip liners. This can’t compare with UD Cherry palette. Have swatched both in store. This is far superior in my opinion, of course. I was waiting for your review & the sale. Ordering this & 1 of the new PM 6 pan eyeshadow palettes.
Thanks for your review.

Certainly not reinventing the wheel here and I’m sure I have a good portion of the shades duped, but this is a good quality, easy to use and well thought out palette! I’ve been waffling on this for a while and I think I will pick it up. Those last 2 purple/plummy shades especially are calling my name! 🙂

Thanks for the great review! I have a weird question: does this palette have an odd smell? I had a CT quad (dolce vita) that I loved but it gave off an intense plastic/oil smell that I found very distracting.

I’ve heard several YTers say that she uses better ingredients and that’s why is smells weird. I have a few of her powder items (pressed powder, eye & face palette, etc…) and I’ve personally never noticed an unusual scent. I was going back and forth on trying her new loose powder or sticking with the Hourglass one and decided to stick with Hourglass because I know I like it and I know the scent doesn’t bother me 🤷‍♀️

I’d be interested in this as an alternative to the Urban Decay Naked Cherry, but the price is just a no. Still beautiful, though. The main difference to me is that Naked Cherry has a few more pops of fun color, this is more neutral but still in the same vein.

I definitely don’t have interest in this color scheme for a palette, but I noticed that Charlotte Tilbury has been using untouched up models in their advertising of late, which I really appreciate! Pores, wrinkles, the texture of pimples – wonderful! Haha. But really though, it makes it much more useful to see what the actual effect of the makeup is, and sets more realistic expectations and fashion/beauty standards. It makes me much more interested in the brand.

Hi Kira, I’ve seen lots of comments on IG applauding CT for using mature models and seeing her apply products on skin with texture, wrinkles, etc. Refreshing! (And she starts with skincare, so is selling her full line in the process.)

I agree with you, totally. But I think a large segment of the m/u commenting public does not. If you read the comments on some instas, etc, they are LOADED with bitchy troll comments about peach fuzz, pores, uneven texture, fine lines, etc. Photoshopping is expected. Perfection is expected. M/U is very YMMV in both color and texture. I vote for reality to be in, and faux swatches that are just an obvious overlay on three ‘representative’ skin tones to be out. Everyone KNOWS that the shades do not look equally good on all three tones. The days when the photos look as if the swatches were computer painted on acetate, and overlaid on skin photos should be gone for good. I just wonder that so many still fall for that crap, and then…yet again..bitch about it, when the colors do not suit them.

I allowed myself to get caught up in the hype for the UD Naked Cherry palette but now I’m wondering if I’d rather splurge (more) and get this one instead. I know they’re not the same, but this one does have those pink/ rose/ cranberry tones included and the quality looks like it’s better overall.

I definitely preferred working with this over Naked Cherry – both in terms of quality but also the way the colors worked together. I felt like Stars in Your Eyes was more versatile/less prone to muddying!

I am really surprised and pleased that this palette has worked out so well. CT’s last offering in this format, a neutral range, was universally panned by British beauty reviewers as being dusty, lacking pigmentation and longevity. So it’s great that the brand has decided to up its game and deliver something worthwhile for the money.

Those “official swatches” posted by the brand are laughable. The entire purpose of a swatch photo is to get an idea of what the product looks like on skin as opposed to in the pan. Why do brands insist on retouching, enhancing, and adding filters?! I find those types of photos much sneakier than a shot of poreless, airbrushed models!

I never trust brand swatches. They all manipulate them, unfortunately.

This is very pretty, and I’m glad to see it got a good score. It’s too expensive for my blood, though, especially since Naked Cherry is working out very well for me. I’m not having any problems with it over primer.

I bought this palette during Sephora’s F&F sale. I like it but don’t love it. What’s throwing it off for me is the orange undertone to some of the shades and the warm tone of some shades that I was hoping would be cool toned (the 2 ‘Eyes’ on the right hand side of the palette). I did wear MAC’s Joy To over one of the violet shades and they looked really nice together. Will keep experimenting.

Stash overkill and a lot of yellow and orange in the shade undertones makes it far easier for me to take a pass. Nice to see a well performing palette overall though.

A year ago I’d’ve been on this in a heartbeat, but I’ve since built a healthy stash in these general ranges. That said, even now I’d be sorely tempted were it not for the price.

This has been the year of pink shadows and pink palettes and it’s worked out very well for my low-buy. Though, if I was in to that kind of thing I’d be pleased with this high rating.

This is my first CT splurge. I am an avid UD collector. Naked Cherry was a bust for me and I returned it. I read reviews on this palette and decided to go for it. Every color blends effortlessly. I didn’t tell my hubby because I wanted an honest opinion. I tried to look through my UD collection and couldn’t find any real dupes. I was shocked when he said my eyeshadow was pretty. I used it for 4 days using the different looks to see if he truly liked it, because he tells me everyday that my makeup looks great. In those 4 days, he commented on my makeup specifically my eyeshadow. This new addition is my first non Urban Decay palette/eyeshadow and I am happy to see the reviews. I am not the greatest with makeup but I have been feeling like a kid in a candy store. This is my first post/comment on social media/blogs. I wanted to share my experience Incase anyone’s on the fence with purchasing this palette. Purchase it, It’s a breath of fresh air!!

So happy to hear that this ended up impressing you so much when Naked Cherry didn’t! Could you share what didn’t work for you with Naked Cherry? Am curious 🙂

Hi Christine,
I apologize for my delayed response. I have every UD, Viseart, and ABH palettes. They are very versatile. When I look at buying a palette, I look to see that I can do a pink/ purple eye, a black smokey eye, neutral eye and a pop of color. Also a mix of shimmers and mattes.
With the Cherry Palette, I tried alot of combinations all ending with a pinky/marroon eye. There were too many dark shades that over powered one another. The lighter 2 shades looked out of place. I had the same issue with the Heat palette. I loved it but ended up with orange eyes.
I could pull from different palettes to create different looks but at the price point of these palettes they should have more versatility.
I appreciate you taking the time to ask me this question.
Thank you for all of your in depth and honest reviews.
Marie
