Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette Of Pops in the shade Pillow Talk.
This palette came as a gift with purchase when you spend a lot of money on her website during the Black Friday sales, so I actually didn’t pay for it which is amazing.
My friend LP from thenewburygirl told me this palette didn’t get great reviews so, since I trust her, I was ready to not like it but it turns out that if you use it right, it’s actually good.
You can buy it from Sephora for 53$.
If you have used a Charlotte Tilbury palette I’d know they come with four shades with a specific use (according to Charlotte makeup style), it goes without saying you can use the palette however you like, but this is a bit different because all the shades are Pop shades, so they are very glittery and are meant to be used as topcoats.
- Prime 1 – (soft metallic gold) Create a smooth base for your eye look.
- Enhance 2 – (metallic pink) Build up the definition in the crease.
- Pop 4 – (metallic rose gold) Finish your dazzling look with the shimmer.
- Smoke 3 – (metallic bronze) Add drama in the outer corner.
The packaging is absolutely stunning and luxurious I totally love it.
It comes in a cardboard box and the details on the palette are beautiful. For some reason, I was expecting a magnetic closure which it doesn’t have but other than that, it’s gorgeous.
PIGMENTATION & FORMULA
The formula is quite soft and smooth especially when you swatch it, it has medium-high pigmentation. The colours are intense and very glittery.
They can be a bit gritty especially Pop 4 (the third shade), it’s very textured so it doesn’t look great alone but it’s beautiful on top of another shade. Honestly, they all look better on top of other shade to add a glittery shift.
They aren’t patchy and the colour selection is beautiful, very classy and seriously perfect for the holidays.
I prefer to use my finger for the glitter, so that’s how I apply them.
With a primer, they last about 10 hours before creasing.

This palette is really pretty. I can see why people had troubles with the formula as it doesn’t look great from the swatches. But this is a palette of Pops, so like every Pop shade from Charlotte Tilbury they are meant to use on top of other eyeshadows. So if you are like me and love to add glitter to every look, I’d say go for it because I’ve been using it A LOT but since it’s so expensive it’s definitely not necessary. I do love it though and the lasting power is amazing. I probably wouldn’t have bought it if it wasn’t free but I’m glad I have it in my collection.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
