Charlotte Tilbury Bejewelled Eyes to Hypnotise First Impressions
- Happy Glow – a glowing, golden topaz look
- Love Glow – a romantic ruby smokey eye
- Dream Glow – a dreamy amethyst-inspired eye look
- Seduce Glow – a smokey quartz super model gaze
Now, do you really need to purchase this palette? That’s for you to decide after you hear my first impressions. The brand claims the palette has 12 brand new shades and two new sparkling light-play textures. So this means that even if you are a Charlotte Tilbury hardcore fan you won’t find any of these shades in her previous palettes.
Of course not the exact shades, but take a look at the LIVE SWATCHES that I posted on Instagram (make sure to swipe left to get to the video) and see if the shades are really unique. I’m pretty sure that many makeup lovers and not Charlotte’s fans necessarily can recreate this palette from the shades they already have.

🚨LIVE SWATCHES & first impressions of #charlottetilbury #bejewelledeyestohypnotize ($75.00/ £60.00) Early Access LINK IN BIO / SWIPE UP LINK. ▪️Details later on the blog 💻 as well. UPCOMING REVIEW in a few days (I really want to test this palette before posting shade by shade review). 😉 ▪️Honestly I was impressed by the pigmentation & color payoff of all of the shades in a single swipe. The mattes were so soft, not patchy and very smooth & soft to the touch. ▪️Swatches were taken on my bare skin without any eyeshadow primer or base applied underneath. Only the mattes were swatched 2 times but they looked good even in a single pass. ▪️Shimmers & metallics felt so creamy and buttery and even the purple shade swatch flawlessly in a single pass. I was really impressed. The first metallic from Seduce Glow had fall out after swatched on my hand. ⚠️These are just my first impressions based on how they swatch and not applied on my eyelids. The shades may perform different when applied on the eyes so wait for my detailed review later this week. 🚨I have only CT #instantpillowtalk palette & 2 quads so for me this purchase was also justified from a #makeuplover💄 point of view. If you own several of her eye palettes & quads u can recreate this palette easily so I’d say skip it or wait for a sale. 🛍🛒 The Palette is beautiful, but not unique & the formula is not new by any means. The packaging is very lightweight & doesn’t really express luxury & high quality. —————————————————————— #charlottetilburybejewelled #holiday2020 #charlottetilburyholiday2020 #charlottetilburymakeup #holidaymakeup #holidaypalette #beautynews #makeupnews #makeupreview #beautyjunkies #beautytrends #makeupaddict #luxurymakeup #luxurybeauty #beautylovers #beautytalk #beautynewsfamily
The palette is beautiful but not unique. My first impression is based only from my experience of swatching the shades on my hand but without using all of them on my eyes. All swatches were applied on bare skin, without any eyeshadow primer or base applied underneath. I took the photos in natural light and swatched only the matte shades in 2 layers while all the rest were one single swipe.
I was pleasantly surprised to see how well the shades swatch even on bare hand. The matte shades perform quite well, they were smooth, thin and very soft and they swatched easily without looking patchy. I wanted to add a second layer to intensify the colors a bit more. All the metallics and shimmers were swatched in a single layer. They all felt creamy, smooth and had a rich pigmentation. I really like the formula and I hope the entire palette will perform just as good on the eyes.
When swatched on my hand only the Prime shade from Seduce Glow had some fall out. All the rest stayed on well without causing any fall out for the entire hour I kept them on my hand. Even the purple shade from Dream Glow really impressed me with its pigmentation and smooth texture.

If you have her previous larger palette then you already know what to expect. I only have Charlotte Tilbury Instant Pillow Talk Palette (shade by shade review, live swatches) and just like I said then, the packaging is average. It looks nice but is very light and because it doesn’t have any weight to it doesn’t give me that luxury feeling that will justify the price point apart from the eyeshadows quality.
Is It Worth Buying It?
As a makeup lover, besides of being a blogger for over 12 years I know the feeling you get when you see a new pretty palette. If the color story is right up your alley then you get heat up even more. If you can recreate these shades from what you already have then you have an excuse to go and buy it. I wouldn’t still recommend it because there’s a sale going on almost every day and for sure this will show up on sale somewhere.
This is limited edition but so were her other palettes which went on sale afterwards. The formula and texture are good (swatched on my arm only) but not unique or impressive and the shades are not something that I haven’t seen before. Overall is a pretty palette but I still think is overpriced just like her other ones.
I’ll be posting a shade by shade review in a few days after I get to test the entire palette. So check back later this week for more details!
