Charlotte Tilbury Seductive Beauty

A few things I like about face palettes are how they don't take up a lot of space on the vanity. They're travel-friendly, super easy to use, and you are done with your makeup in no time!
One of my favorite high end beauty brand, Charlotte Tilbury recently launched this 
Instant Look In A Palette
5 Minute Face On The Go

 I have purchased a few Charlotte Tilbury makeup before and have done reviews on them HERE and HERE. You know by now, how much I love this brand, and this face palette did not disappoint.

"Following on from the sell-out success of the ‘Instant Look In A Palette: Natural Beauty’, comes Charlotte’s NEW ‘Instant Look In A Palette: Seductive Beauty’! It’s all you need to dramatically enhance, seduce and mesmerize with your eyes all year round. Perfect for evening dates and glittering parties, this is makeup MAGIC to transform you from dusk ‘till dawn!"
This palette contains 7 of Charlotte Tilbury's most loved and iconic shades.

1 - Eye Brighten is a shimmery champagne shade you apply all over the lids.
2 - Eye Enhance is a taupe brown shimmery shadow used to contour the eye.
3 - Eye Smoke is a molten chocolate bronze shade with gold shimmers.
4 - Face Bronze is great to warm the skin up. I wouldn't suggest using this as your contouring shade as this has a shimmery finish to it.
5 - Cheek Swish is a subtle peachy-pink blush with gold shimmers.
6 - Cheek Pop is a matte rosier pink blush
7 - Face Highlighter will give that candlelight glow type highlight on your face.

And here's a look I created, which I thought is perfect for the upcoming Valentine's Day! 
Giving the red lipstick and gloss a break here, and matching this smokey eye look with Charlotte Tilbury's Secret Salma, natural deep-rose plum matte lipstick.
This has a softer, more romantic look to it I think, instead of a darker smokey eye.
This look can definitely be worn during your daytime date, and since it's travel-friendly you can just apply more of the darker shade later on the day.

My Thoughts
It didn't exactly take me 5 minutes to finish my full face makeup, but that's because I was in no rush when I was doing my makeup with this palette. I don't think I ever finished in 5 minutes, rushed or not with any of my makeup looks since I do like to keep going back on my bronzer or blush or eyeshadows and blend it one or two more times.

I always have a hard time which blush to wear with a smokey eye, and so I really appreciate face palettes that thinks of which bronzer, blush and highlighter to use altogether. I didn't have to go through my drawers to see which ones to use, and so in a way I did save time and was able to use that extra time fixing my brows and winging out my liquid liner.

My only con is the small blush pans, I have to use a smaller makeup brush (but bigger than my eye makeup brushes) to dip in the pan. 

Just like her other face powder products and quad eyeshadow palettes, this palette does not disappoint with the pigmentation and the quality of the powder. 

Overall, this is a great purchase if you want to try out Charlotte Tilbury makeup.
You really can't argue with the price, since a full size Cheek to Chic blush is already going to cost you $40.00, and a Filmstar Bronze & Glow is $68.00!
