If quads count as palettes, it would be Charlotte Tilbury’s The Rock Chick. After getting The Rebel and being so pleased with it (Genevieve praised it so much that I grabbed it as soon as it became available in store), I was keen to give this smoky, cool toned, slightly grungy quad a try. In spite of its name, it’s actually quite wearable in a conservative workplace but can be used for smoky, edgy looks as well.

I have never been tempted to purchase Charlotte Tilbury but I am now, perfect neutral-cool gray color story, with a variety of finishes, in a small compact. With a cool name. I’m saving my tips for this one 🙂

I hope you like it, Lacey. If it’s available in store near you, I’d check it out in person, first. I’d never been tempted by CT either except for Genevieve’s praise for the Rebel quad and after I got that, it piqued my interest though I think the 2 I now have are really the only ones I want.

Lacey Avatar

I didn’t know stores are doing testers again. Maybe the local Sephora has CT. Uptown Girl and Golden Goddess are CT palettes that also look interesting. I have a few small Viseart compacts, they work well for on the go looks. Thank you for advice Mariella!

Here (Ontario, Canada) Sephora is no longer giving those samples they used to do (the ones made up at your request in store) but they do have testers of products out for you to see and even swatch. It’s funny you should mention the Golden Goddess quad because I was just looking at it online and thinking that maybe I should check it out!

I only have one Viseart palette – the small Cashmere one – and it’s so excellent. I do wish more of those had been available in store – I probably would have bought both the more grey one and the green toned one. They really are good and so compact and good quality.

Lacey Avatar

The small Viseart palettes are great. Sometimes there’s a random shade that is difficult, overall the palettes are great quality, portable and sturdy. The grays of the CT palette are possibly comparable to Viseart Theory III Chroma, but that CT palette looks very neutral and cool leaning.

I was supposed to be on a low buy this year. BUT I decided instead to use eyeshadow palettes as a reward to break a bad habit. I told myself if I don’t do the habit for a month I can get a new palette. Then another the next month. It’s working!
So the last eyeshadow palette I bought was Juvia’s Culture palette. I totally recommend it. It’s a rainbow palette that does include pressed pigments, which have never bothered me but might be off putting to some. There is one pressed glitter, which I don’t use.
The mattes are bright and pigmented, but my favorite part is the shimmers. The palette includes 5 duochromes which are great for layering over the mattes. The palette has so much color and summer vibes. Love it!

The last palette I’ve bought is the CP smoke’n roses. After the Stone Cold Fox I’ve fallen in love with those shadows all over again.
Love that palette, it has a the right mix of neutrals, a little bit of warm and cooler colors. Lot’s of light colors as well. My mature eyes look better with a little more contrast (smokey eyes tend to make me look tired).
Also the ratio shimmer against matte is ok (more mattes would have been ok). I use most shimmers over a light base, they act better on that 😉
Normally I’m a Natasha Denona addict, but I didn’t buy much (at all) the last years due to health issues. I just didn’t wear makeup like at all, and as of now I start to enjoy it again.

Natasha Denona Pastel. It’s decent. I don’t think these are super pigmented shadows. They require some building up. The shimmers are not earth shattering. I like it but I see why others don’t. I like simple looks. Like a matte in the crease, shimmer on the lid. I don’t think it is best for anything more complicated imo

The one that I actually have and have been using almost exclusively, and that never happens, is Nars Unrated Eyeshadow Palette. It is such an easy to use, it’s the perfect “Naked” palette for me and my coloring! I have used every single shade except for the one very glittery shade, which I will one day when I have somewhere special to go, and they are all top notch!

Dior Bayadere (the warm/gold one) my favorite quint/palette this year! The quality and overall looks I can get are so stunning!

I am late to the party on this, but I just bought PMG Divine Rose eye palette. The price always held me back, and I was afraid it might be too much glitter for my mature eyes. But it was 30% off before Mother’s Day, and I looked at a few other reviews/swatches besides here and decided to take the leap. I’m very happy with it; quality is top notch and most of the colors are suitable to a semi-conservative work environment. I’ve been playing with different combinations since it arrived.

I bought the Jaclyn palette which is beautiful and wonderfully different from all the orange/pinks out there. I love the shades, just wish they were a little more pigmented.

Genevieve Avatar

The last eyeshadow palette I have purchased is PMG’s Subliminal Platinum Bronze Mothership palette (a mouthful) of the brand’s neutral shades. It is a 6 pan of warmer neutral browns and I used it first on Mother’s Day last Sunday.
The shades used were Platinize (a soft pewter shade), Telepathic Taupe (a warm gold with a metallic finish) and Sextrovert ( a medium brown with a metallic finish). The shades were easy to apply and blended out beautifully, creating a seamless tonal eye look. The eyeshadows, with primer, lasted all day and into the evening without fading. I would definitely recommend this one to all neutral lovers.

I purchased Candy Cakes, Moonscapes, and Carnival Sweets from Devinah Cosmetics. The Pastel Palette from Natasha Denona. From Zeesea Cosmetics the Gayer Anderson Cat, Ankh, and Crystal Skull. Lastly Peachy Queen Cosmetics Y2K Multi Chrome. I also received new palettes from Boxy Charm and Ipsy (newly canceled) if those count. I’m on the fence to get Jeffree Star’s Banana Fetish and Glamite’s Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes palettes…I welcome any opinions!!!

The last palette I bought was the Danessa Myricks Lightwork Volume III Infinite Light Palette. I haven’t used all the colors yet, I’m looking forward to summer to use a few of them. The highlighters are beautiful, buildable, last for hours. The eyeshadows that I have used are very pigmented so I started out light and built them up, they lasted the 8 hours that I wore them for without moving or creasing. I did not use an eyeshadow primer but I used setting spray.

My newest palette is the Gnome Chrome Halloween palette by Sugar Drizzle Polish. The colors are absolutely gorgeous and saturated. They are very smooth and pigmented and when they get in the sunlight the sparkles really pop. It is my first palette from Sugar Drizzle Polish and I am definitely interested in more of their products.

Natasha Denona Gold mini. Antheia is a gorgeous eyeshadow! In addition to various shades of green micro glitters/shimmers, it sparkles light gold, chartreuse and pale blue. Deeper base but transparent, can be built up until you can see it from outer space. Very unique. The whole palette is great, love the variety of finishes, can pull together basic, smoky or fancy looks easily. The gold D’or is very shiny, flakey and prone to migrate, works better with a glitter glue or eye shadow primer to stay in place (that goes for all the shimmers imo). Dark sepia is a pretty burnished brown for lining or darkening outer V.

I really like pairing ND Gold mini with Christine’s On The Horizon palette. Especially the blues and greens in OTH. Desert Spoon elevates the grunge of ND Bia to a brighter muted green (if there is such a thing, I don’t know how to describe the combo) and Heart Dog is so pretty as a highlight with any color! 🙂

Dior 5 Couleurs Couture Velvet in 729 Rosa Mutabilis.

When you featured this range, Christine, I complained they were not available in the UK.

Found on the Dior UK site, but they are hidden in the new section!

Anyway, not actually worn yet as only arrived this week.
Loved the colours of this 5 eyeshadow pan. One shimmer shade, the rest are mat but not dry or powdery.

Can’t wait for your reviews of the range, Christine.

The last palette I bought is Sweet as Can Bee, the Winnie the Pooh palette from Colour Pop.
I got it the day before yesterday and have only swatched the shades so far. I was going to use it yesterday but instead used On the Horizon palette as I felt like I wanted an intense green look. (I used Flying High and Earthbound on the mobile lid and Desert Spoon in the crease with transition and brow shades torm Cool Neutrals from Viseart.)
Back to the last palette bought, it swatched beautifully on my rather dry skin on the left arm. I have loads of palettes and still think this was a very nice complement to my stash. I thought when I ordered it that I wouldn’t have any use for the orangey and the yellow shades, but after seeing them in real life I can actually think of using them.
Generally I’m on a very, very low buy and have had to force myself from buying a lot from both CP and lots of other brands. I thought I was on a no buy, but I do need to have the possibility of buying something, only not every week or even month, but now and then.

I ordered just yesterday the Suqqu LE quad in 116 Koukyou from their summer 2022 collection. As that hasn’t arrived yet, I’m giving a mini review on my last purchase before that, the LE Chanel Mediterraneén quad instead. I have used this Chanel quad quite a lot. These neutral, understated colors are suitable for every occasion and need hardly any blending. So quick and easy to throw on even when I don’t have a lot of time. I have mixed feelings, because being a bit “boring” and a no-brainer is the very reason I get good use out of it; but at the same time, I just wish loved it more.
