This Charlotte Tilbury palette was well worth the wait

There’s truth to the saying “Good things come to those who wait,” and if you have yet to experience the makeup heaven that is Charlotte Tilbury you’re in luck.

I’ve been a devotee since I scooped up my first goodies in London a few years ago (before the brand launched in the U.S.) and my collection has been growing steadily ever since. I absolutely, positively cannot live without the Wonder Glow primer, and the Light Wonder has become my go-to foundation. I can also thank the Filmstar Bronze & Glow palette and its bronzer and highlighter for my perpetually radiant skin—and I have four of Charlotte’s eyeshadow palettes in heavy rotation (amongst a litany of other products).

In exciting news, Charlotte has launched the Instant Look in a Palette in “Natural Beauty.” It features all the essentials you need for a subtle yet sophisticated look, and each pan is embossed with a step number so it’s pretty foolproof. You get three eyeshadows that follow Charlotte’s signature brighten/enhance/smoke approach, my favorite bronzer, a cheek color to “swish,” a cheek color to “pop” and the highlighting powder.

I’m actually disappointed that I can’t justify purchasing this perfect palette since I have all of the shades (minus the shadow combination) separately—but you can (and should!)
