I used to travel a lot for my old job, so I have really come to appreciate portability in a makeup product. That's why I love the Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette in the shade combo Beauty Glow.

You've probably heard about this palette already, as Charlotte Tilbury is one of the most-hyped brands out there. But I'm here to tell you that this palette is totally worth the hype.

It's an all-powder palette, with three eyeshadows, a bronzer, two blushes, and a highlighter. They're all of amazing pigmentation and quality, and the lasting power is as good as it gets. Even on my extremely oily eyelids (yuck!), these shadows stay put all day without a primer (!). When applied with a light hand, the bronzer is subtle enough for skin as pale as mine--but it's also super buildable and would work well on more medium-toned skin. The highlighter is also subtle and almost impossible to overdo.

The blush shades are a little funny--I often pass on blush since my rosacea usually shines through, keeping my covered on the rosy-cheeks front. The top blush shade would look amazing on darker skin tones. I personally love using it as an eyeshadow. It's the perfect warm-toned shadow. The bronzer also works really well as a transition colour in the crease.

I've swatched the eyeshadow colours below for you (including the top blusher, swatched at the end, which I use as an eyeshadow). I also love using the deeper brown colour as an all-over lid colour, blended out into the crease using the bronzer. This is great for a simple, tonal, everyday eye look.

So is it worth the hype?

In my opinion, yes! The palette is also a great way to try out Charlotte Tilbury's powder products without spending an absolute fortune. It's definitely pricy, but compared to individual sizes of her other products, it's a better deal.
