Charlotte Tilbury Dreamy Look in a Clutch Review

You all know Charlotte Tilbury makes some of my favourite makeup products, I received a new gift set for Christmas which I'll be showing you today in detail, and it's limited edition so make sure you read my full review now!

Charlotte Tilbury has several ready-made looks available, they're a great idea because they offer all you need for a certain look. She offers videos showing you how to achieve the look and all the products included in the set are top quality and not cheaper versions of the real deal.
This set is limited edition and includes an eyeshadow palette, eye liner, mascara, lipstick, lip liner and a USB pen.

Legendary Muse Luxury Eyeshadow Palette
This beautiful eyeshadow palette contains four new shades, it sold out very quickly as a standalone palette as it contains warm neutral eyeshadows and a splash of rose gold which is so much in fashion now.

- Shade 1 Prime is a light copper with warm undertones and a satin sheen. The pigmentation is good and it's easy to blend, it's a lovely colour to use alone all over the eyelid.

- Shade 2 Enhance is a medium gold with orange undertones and pearly shimmer. It seems sheerer than the first eyeshadow but it also blends well.

- Shade 3 Smoke is a dark rose with warm undertones and frosted shimmer. This one is more pigmented but still easy to blend.

- Shade 4 Pop is a medium gold with warm yellow undertones and it has a glittery finish. Charlotte Tilbury recommends applying this with your finger, it doesn't leave lots of glitter on the eyelid, it gives a subtle sparkle to the look.

I have really been enjoying this palette because it contains very wearable eyeshadows which are easily blended and work well separately or together. I've used it for daily looks and also party looks and I always get sophisticated results.
Mini Legendary Eye Liner in Bedroom Black
I really like her eye liners because they're intensely pigmented and they glide on the eyes. This one is a jet black, creamy and easy to smudge.
You can use it in the waterline and it's supposed to be waterproof, it lasts well although my eyes are quite watery so it smudges a bit at the edges after 5-6 hours.

This one isn't full sized but it's a generous deluxe sample and I have enjoyed using it a lot. It adds a special date night touch to the look.
Mini Legendary Lashes
I really couldn't wait to try out her new mascara and I have a love/hate relationship with it.
I love that it gives dark fluttery lashes, it doesn't clump and it's really easy to work with. Unfortunately it isn't waterproof so it smudges quite badly on me after less than an hour, I end up with black marks all over the place!

It's a real shame because I really like the brush, how easily it applies and the way my eyelashes look. I still find myself using the mascara, but it's very impractical as it smudges badly.
Hot Lips Secret Salma
The Hot Lips are a collaboration with celebrities to support Women for Women International. This one is supposed to be Salma Hayek's color and it's in the Matte Revolution formula.

The formulation is wonderful because it is more satin than matte, it doesn't enhance dryness and makes lips look full. It's pigmented and doesn't dry out my lips and the lipstick bullet and formula make it easy to apply.

The color is a dark rosy mauve with warm undertones, it is a shade which will flatter most skin tones and I find myself reaching for it very often!
Mini Legendary Lip Liner: Bitten Kiss
There is another limited edition product in this set!! This is a new colour of her lovely lip liner formula, one of her most popular products.
The lip liner is creamy, comfortable, doesn't dry out the lips and is long wearing. Pillow Talk is her most famous shade, but this nude pink is a touch darker than that one and pairs better with the lipstick.
Lipstick shaped USB Pen
Isn't this USB the coolest thing you've ever seen? Shaped like a lipstick it's the ultimate beauty addict accessory.
This USB pen comes with a video which shows you how to create the Dreamy Look using all the products in the clutch. It's a great idea and perfect to give to someone who doesn't know much about makeup. But of course it's also perfect to give to a confessed beauty lover, or to gift to oneself!
Overall
Once again Charlotte Tilbury has created another beautiful luxury set which makes us beauty addicts swoon. All the products work incredibly well together, are easy to use and you can create sophisticated classy looks.
It's a shame the Legendary Lashes isn't in a waterproof formula, my oily skin means it smudges badly on me. The rest of the products haven't disappointed in any way. 


It is pricey at £90 but it contains two limited edition shades which aren't available individually. I'm certainly using all the products a lot and a few of the products have become new favourites in my collection.
