Charlotte Tilbury

I don’t find myself all that drawn to Charlotte Tilbury products off the bat; like I don’t hear about a new release and get particularly excited, but some of my very favorite products are by Charlotte Tilbury (Hollywood Flawless Filter, Filmstar Bronze & Glow, Hollywood Light Wands). The brand has a tendency to release everything in the same wheelhouse, though, and I think they could do a substantially better job releasing color cosmetics that would work on more skin tones.

Tarte

They have some really solid formulas in their core range, but sometimes, they play it so safe that their actual product releases look and feel redundant, even when I look at them as “someone new is always coming into makeup.” I’d like to see them take a little more risk, depart a little more from their usual zone, in small ways.

I really love that the brand came out with the smaller, 15-pan palette size–I think that is so much more appealing compared to the full-sized 15-pan palettes. I would love to see an extension of the singles range, though, as a lot of the shades released in the various palettes (both limited edition and permanent) are exclusive to those palettes, even though you can pop them out of them.

I wish they’d expand their permanent eyeshadow range (I think they keep discontinuing shades), especially by bringing back some favorite LE shades from past palette releases. I like that the brand tries to listen to what their customers want, and I think it’s cool how much behind-the-scenes information Norvina shares via social.

I love their eyeshadows, particularly when they do satins and pearls, which so few brands do. I think they have some gorgeous color schemes in their arranged palettes, and I appreciate that they’ve put out more consumer-friendly palettes (and sizes) over the years. I’d love to see more expansion into other types of products, and I’d love to see some more unusual palette color combinations.

Not enough new colors??? Is that really a valid complaint?? I’d love to see the Prismatic gloss range expanded, and I’m desperate for a more shimmery take on the Amuse Bouche formula! I could also see the brand rocking a more semi-sheer/medium coverage formula.

There are a lot of permanent products from Urban Decay that I really love (Vice Lipsticks and 24/7 Eyeliners are some of my go-tos, as far as I can have go-tos!). I’ve found that their seasonal/limited edition launches can be more hit or miss, and they can be repetitive, despite the brand not having THAT many launches per year (like why it is always the same cheek trio?).

I don’t like when they’re too soft that they don’t pick up product well–I don’t want super dense either, but I tend to prefer moderate to dense and then using pressure to control how much (or little) gets picked up. I think it’s because I also find that when it’s so soft that it gets hard to pick up product… it is also more time-consuming to diffuse/blend out because the bristles aren’t efficient enough for my liking.

I don’t have much to rant about; I get a long well the most classic shape (tapered, moderately dense), so I don’t feel like I’ve ever struggled in this area to find at least a few to love and love quickly! It might be nice to see more variety in shapes and densities, though.
