Charlotte Tilbury Star Aura is a limited edition eye palette that retails for $56.00 and contains 0.18 oz.
Charlotte Tilbury Star Aura Eyeshadow Quad ($53.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a new, limited edition warm-toned neutral quad that features a wet/dry eyeshadow formula. It had more of a gel-powder hybrid feel to me, which I find is quite consistent between various brands and excels at having a smoother, more seamless finish on skin and no powderiness.
The textures are firmer, a bit denser, though not stiff as they remained blendable and easy to work with. They do not have to be used with a dampened brush to apply evenly or to have coverage, so the formula was versatile, though I felt like the color story could have used a little more contrast.
The weight of the palette is half the size of past quad releases, though the gel-powder kind of formulas tend to take up similar volume (so the quad itself/pans appear the same size and depth) as traditional pressed shadows but weigh less, so it wasn’t a total surprise.
The power to mesmerise is in your eyes and Charlotte has decoded the secrets to iconic, hypnotic eyes with the Luxury Palette. Each colour in the quad has a different texture and formula to suit its primary function. ‘Prime’ is emollient-rich to smooth the eyelid, ‘Enhance’ blends easily with all of the other colours, ‘Smoke’ is highly pigment-rich to create a dramatic effect, ‘Pop’ is rich in light-reflecting shimmer flex for an eye-catching, mesmerising finish.
