Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel Luxury Palette for Holiday 2014

The Fallen  angel palette from Charlotte Tilbury was on the top of my holiday shopping list! It launched awhile back in the UK, and is now available in the US. Its really the only eye palette for Holiday 2014 that I was already secretly caressing in my mind before I actually held it in my hands. I love charlotte Tilbury shadows and this goes beyond my expectations.

The usual plain case is adorned with a palm throw of stars which is mimicked in the shadows below.
They are gone with only a few uses but they are so feminine and fun! I love this trend of imprinting these powders with gorgeous graphics. The shadows in this palette have a different texture than her existing quads, (performance remains) and no glitter shade is included - the same concept remains with the prime, enhance, 'pop'  and smoke. These shadows are soft and buttery and I had no fallout whatsoever. These shade are metallic, but a whole spectrum of looks can be created from a soft finish to a full on smokey eye. The other difference is that this palette, to create a molten metallic look, can be used wet. I found the colours surprisingly wearable for the day -  a light wash on the eyes created a very pretty look. They also lasted for ages on my primed lids. For me the colours were quite neutral and not overly warm even with the inclusion of the copper shade. And of course, amped up, layered and all- you will seriously smoulder and glisten!

For Charlotte's first holiday palette I am thrilled and delighted - can u tell I am thrilled and delighted!
