Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look In A Palette ‘Beauty Glow’ REVIEW

 You all probably know by now how obsessed I am with Charlotte Tilbury, so when they released the ‘Beauty Glow’ version of the Instant Look In A Palette for their #GLOWMO collection I obviously had to get it.

If you haven’t seen the Instant Look In A Palette before, it basically has everything you need to create a look in one palette (minus the foundation, concealer and mascara obviously) and comes in three different shades. The ‘Beauty Glow’ Palette is the most bronzy out of the three, the other two palettes are the ‘Natural Beauty’, a more neutral-toned palette, and ‘Seductive Beauty’, a cool-toned palette. 

The packaging is stunning of course, what Charlotte Tilbury product isn’t? The palette is actually a little heavier than I expected, but that just makes me confident about how great the quality is. My favourite thing about the packaging is the giant mirror, which makes it extra perfect for travelling.

This is a very warm-toned palette which is one of the reasons why I love it so much. I think the idea of having everything you need in one palette is really awesome; this is super compact so I know it will be great to travel with and I won’t need to bring too many products with me! 

The formula of all of the powders is excellent, they definitely are the same quality as her full-size products. Every shade is really pigmented, the matte eyeshadow especially impressed me, although I do wish that the shimmer shadows were a little more pigmented because they can look quite similar in colour on the eye. Despite this, the shadows all work together to create quite a natural, very glowy bronzed look so I’m still really happy with them.

I do wish the blushes were a tiny bit bigger because it can be a struggle to fit my brush into them, but I just use a stippling brush which is the perfect size and applies blush beautifully! I was a little concerned that the powders are all placed quite close together and that they could end up mixing with each other, but although these powders are soft and buttery they don’t have much kickback which is awesome!

The shades in this palette are seriously stunning, and pair together to make the most beautiful, glowy look! This palette claims to give you a bronzed, glowing look in just five minutes, and whilst I definitely think it takes longer than that I would say I can do my makeup in just fifteen minutes with this palette and look really put together! I really love how my makeup looks when I use this, it always gives me a great makeup day and makes me feel super radiant. It really gives you that ‘just got back from a holiday’ kind of glow, and I know I’m going to love using this throughout summer!

I actually was a little concerned initially with how dark the main blush shade looked, but it applies a lot more sheer to the skin and gives the most gorgeous bronzy glow, I’m really surprised by how much I love it! I also really love how versatile this palette is, I find that the bronzer makes a great transition/crease shade if you want a more subtle look, or you can use the darker blush to create a great smoky eye.

Although this palette doesn’t come cheap at £49, I think that the price is incredibly reasonable when you think about the range of products you’re getting, plus this palette really has everything you need so it’s a worthy investment. I absolutely love this palette and would totally recommend it to all my fellow warm-toned lovers out there, or one of the other shades if this isn’t really your thing! 

I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments what you think of this palette and whether or not you want to buy it! See you next time,

    This is such a gorgeous looking palette. It’s not often that these ‘everything in one’ palettes actually deliver but I think this one does! xxx

    I’m hesitating between beauty glow and seductive beauty! which one would you recommend for olive-medium skintone? I’m already getting the natural beauty for more everyday simple makeup so let me know your thoughts! thanks in advance!

      I’d definitely recommend beauty glow, it’s a lot more bronzey and perfect for warmer skin tones!
