The Easy Smokey Eye

Charlotte Tilbury The Easy Smokey Eye Mini Eye Palette ($55.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette that is exclusive to Nordstrom (available now to cardholders, July 19th to the public).  All six shades performed well; the mattes were soft, velvety, and blendable, while the shimmers were lightly creamy (but not too dense or too thick!), which made all the shades easy to apply and work with.  They had nearly opaque to opaque pigmentation that lasted between eight and eight and a half hours.

It’s a warmer, more slimmed down take on the Stars in Your Eyes palette, which is a bit cooler-toned but has a similar matte formula (though the shimmers in Mini palette were smoother, creamier).  You can see a side-by-side comparison of the relevant shades between the two palettes here.

Easy Smokey Day (Prime)

Easy Smokey Day (Prime) is a bright, peachy gold with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had rich pigmentation in one pass, which adhered evenly and smoothly to my skin. The consistency was soft, lightly creamy, and denser without being heavy or too thick, so it picked up well on a brush and blended out easily. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

Easy Smokey Day (Enhance)

Easy Smokey Day (Enhance) is a light, golden peach with warm undertones and a metallic finish. The texture was soft, a little dusty in the pan, but it adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out well along the edges. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which wore well for eight hours on me before fading a bit.

Easy Smokey Day (Smoke) is a muted, medium brown with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a soft, slightly dusty consistency that applied evenly and blended out easily.

Easy Smokey Date (Prime)

Easy Smokey Date (Prime) is a medium-dark copper with soft, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was soft and yielding without being too thick.

Easy Smokey Date (Smoke)

Easy Smokey Date (Smoke) is a deep, muted copper-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a smooth, velvety consistency that had good substance to it, so it was a “thicker” formula but still soft and blendable to the touch. It adhered well to bare skin, though it darkened slightly compared to the color as seen in the pan, and was easy to work with it. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

If I didn’t have these shades up to my eyeballs, I would absolutely buy this palette. It has such lovely application in your eye look that I still may. Primarily because having them all in one place would be beneficial for traveling, even if just a short ways!

Way too warm for me. These recent palettes from CT (the Nordstrom exclusives) put me in mind a fair bit of the NakedBasics ones and also the Smashbox Covershot 8-pans that offer better value and better colours for my tastes.

I would absolutely be all over this palette, if I didn’t have The Stars in your Eyes palette, which I love! This one looks great! I have the Dolce Vita palette as well, so I guess I have to skip this one. I have been very happy with my purchases of CT so far.

Continually grateful to you! I had it in my cart based off the product image online, but I would have been sorely disappointed if I had bought it expecting a larger version of the LE holiday Luxury Palette from a few years back but getting a very warm, reddened palette (which has no home in mine)!

A very pretty muted mini palette that delivers beautifully co-ordinated shades. Not for me, but I think it would suit those who didn’t purchase the larger Stars in Your Eyes palette.

It is beautiful and a perfect size but I have promised myself not to buy any more warm toned eyeshadow palettes. If this had been cool, or even neutral to cool I would have had a hard time passing it up. It was the only thing in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (beauty) that I was interested in- so money saved!

Not sure about this one! I love the colors but I’m cool toned with pink undertones and worried about the warmth of this palette.
