Supersonic Girl

Charlotte Tilbury Supersonic Girl Eyeshadow Quad ($52.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a new, limited edition quad that contains four, sparkling shades that sold out very quickly across the internet retailers. There are moments where I feel like I live and breathe all things beauty and then there will be products, like this one, that sell out and leave me confused as to why. In the brand’s eyeshadow quads, one shade is the “pop” color, which is usually a sparkly shade with a more emollient, almost “wet” texture, and this palette contains all “pops.” For most, I suspect this is a complementary palette–glittery, sparkly accents to pair with one of many palettes out on the market (including Stars in Your Eyes, which I felt went with this palette).

The brand recommended to use the formula with fingertips, if using it dry, for “intense color pay off” or wet to “unleash the intensity and vibrancy of the shades.” I found that they very much needed to be used with a dampened brush or fingertips to get decent coverage and application with minimal fallout. You’ll also want to use an adhesive spray to minimize fallout over time, though the sparkles seemed to be flatter and adhere better to my lids compared to rounder glitter particles.

Supersonic Girl #1

Supersonic Girl #1 is a soft, rosy copper with warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle and copper shimmer. It had sheer coverage applied with fingertips as well as with a dampened brush; it did not seem to improve either way. I tried to pack it on, but I ended up with more fallout than increased intensity. The texture was denser, more loosely-pressed, and a little gritty compared to the other three shades, which may have been why it did not seem to have a good base pigment coming through. It wore well for eight hours with light fallout over time.

Supersonic Girl #2

Supersonic Girl #2 is a medium orange with warm, brown undertones giving is a slightly more muted intensity paired with larger flecks of sparkle. It had good color payoff when applied dry with fingertips and opaque coverage when applied with a dampened brush. The shimmer dispersed more evenly and noticeably when I used it with a dampened brush, though, as my fingertip seemed to have most of the sparkles left on it than transferred onto my lid. The texture was denser, slightly firmer in the pan, so it did not blend out as easily as I would have liked. It lasted for eight hours with light fallout over time.

Supersonic Girl #3

Supersonic Girl #3 is a medium brown with warm undertones and a sparkling finish. This was the most sparkly shade in the quad, and it was one that had a bit more fallout during application as well as throughout wear if I didn’t use it with an adhesive spray. The texture was soft, a bit more yielding, but I think that was what caused the additional fallout during application, which was most noticeable when I used it dry with a fingertip. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with less base color that translated onto my skin when I applied using my fingertip. When I used a dampened brush, it was opaque with more evenly dispersed sparkles. It stayed on well for eight hours with light to moderate fallout over time.

Supersonic Girl #4

Supersonic Girl #4 is a light red with warm undertones and flecks of sparkle. The base color seemed more satin-to-matte than shimmer-filled as the other shades. It had good pigmentation applied dry with a fingertip and opaque coverage when applied with a dampened brush. The texture was a bit denser and firmer in the pan, though it seemed to blend out fairly easily. I didn’t have fallout during application with this shade, and there was just a touch of fallout after eight hours of wear.

This should be something that is right up my alley b/c it’s sparkly warm toned shades, but this is really boring. It doesn’t have anything that screams wow about it, so nothing to tempt me to spend the money & add ANOTHER warm toned palette to my collection.

This is gonna sound crazy, but even though I love the eye look you created with it and that these types of shades are definitely “my thing”; I’m actually THRILLED that it sold out because then I cannot be tempted into getting it!

Pretty much shows how SM sells the stuff these days. A big name with covetable products, and poooof! The irony is that the quad just isn’t worth that type of response. When the reviews aren’t up until after a product is sold out, that’s insanity. (And you are always timely.) The fact that it is not stand-alone and the shades are same old/same old make it even less fathomable that it sold out in a flash. This exemplifies what I dislike about the marketing of m/u in the late teens.

I don’t get along with Charlotte Tilbury eye shadows all that much and haven’t purchased any since Vintage Vamp was such a disappointment to me. I wouldn’t have picked this up anyway but sorry for those that developed FOMO and purchased before actually seeing a review and swatching. There is nothing special about the colour selection so I guess it is the CT name.

I have a question though, Christine, when you mentioned would benefit from a spray adhesive, are you referring to something like MAC Fix * ? Thank you.

I agree with you Christine as to why this quad sold out so quickly when it is obviously below par. Perhaps there will be a lot of dissatified customers at the end of the day. The shades are fairly popular and they are fussy to use and really not that great.
Beautiful eye look once again Christine.

I saw this in Bloomingdale’s (the Soho location got most of the holiday collection prior to when it was announced). One of the counter’s sale associates let me swatch the big Stars palette and then let me swatch this one. I swatched the big palette and was amazed how pigmented and buttery they were. I then swatched this, which didn’t really swatch much yet resulted in the fallout of gritty glitter over my hands. I looked at her, shook my head, and said, “yeah, that’s not for me.”

I agree with Christine here in that it was next to impossible to get an actual swatch with fingers in spite of CT’s pop shades coming with instructions to apply with your fingers. It’s too bad cause I really liked the Stars palette and the new sheer glossy lipsticks.

I just think there are better glittery shades out there. If I want straight up glitter, Lemonhead makes a nice liquid glitter for the eyes that’s designed to be opaque and stay in place until you take it off.

You know, I would respect a brand a lot more if they just told up front “This has a metric ton of sparkle. Please be careful.”

All I need, really.

I struggle with her shadows and I have too many options where I don’t. PM Bronze Seduction is a fantastic alternative and has serious Wow factor in terms of colour and blendability. I’d rather pay more when the quality is there.
