I was so incredibly lucky to have the chance to try so much gorgeous new makeup lately! Most of it from amazing brands like Charlotte Tilbury, Burberry and NARS. And I’m loving every single makeup bit I tried!

My only regret is that’s just one me and so many amazing makeup products! Haha!

But today I finally got around to properly review another beautiful eyeshadow palette from Charlotte Tilbury, The Uptown Girl and to try to create a look using it and its complementary Matte Revolution lipstick in Amazing Grace.

I’m not going to bore you again with all the “technical details” on what Charlotte Tilbury‘s eyeshadows are made with ( I already wrote about that when I reviewed The Sophisticate and The Dolce Vita ), but I have to say again that these are one of the softest, creamiest, pigmented and effortlessly blend-able eyeshadows in my collection, on the same “rank” with my beloved Burberry eyeshadows.

In terms of colour The Uptown Girl is one of my favourite quads this far. I love the colour selection and how holographic the colours are ( you can see that they can look slightly different in different light intensities ).

The colours are:

PRIME – a beautiful peach colour with warm golden undertones and frosted metallic sheen, to use all-over the lid as a base

ENHANCE – a nice dusty gray colour with warm purple undertones and a softer metallic sheen than the colour above, great transitional shade

SMOKE – a deeper purple-gray shade, a medium-dark colour excellent to “smoke” the crease or to use as an eyeliner.

POP – the most beautiful and complex eyeshadow of the entire palette, it is a light and bright warm-toned peach, with the most amazing glitters I’ve ever seen. Unless other glittery eyeshadows I used, Charlotte Tilbury‘s glitter eyeshadows had the least fall-outs and they are pigmented enough to be used on their own or over a base.

When Charlotte Tilbury launched her MATTE Revolution Lipstick range last year, she meant for them to be used for specific looks created with her amazing eyeshadow palettes.

Again, I’m not going to write about “technical details” when it comes to her matte lipsticks, because I already wrote about that when I reviewed Sexy Sienna.

Yet again, her MATTE Revolution Lipstick range has the most comfortable formula in a matte lipstick I have tried this far. They glide on the lips so easily and in a single swipe they pack on the exact amount of colour you need to make your lips look flawless.

Amazing Grace is a dusty pink lipstick with rosy undertones, a vintage rose shade which looks a bit darker online but nonetheless a gorgeous colour, that would look flattering on any lovely lady, regardless her age. I’m sure it will be one of my favourite colours I will use this Spring, along with Lost Cherry.
