Charlotte Tilbury Celestial Pearl Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Celestial Pearl

Charlotte Tilbury Celestial Pearl Eyeshadow Quad ($53.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a new, limited edition all-shimmer eyeshadow quad for the holiday season. The quality was decent, but the formulas were best used with a dampened brush and/or fingertip for richer, smoother application with less fallout. To my eye, and even on my coloring, the colors tended to blend together and lose contrast, so it was a more muddied look–I think it’d be better paired with some mid-tone or deeper mattes.

Celestial Pearl #1

Celestial Pearl #1 is a light, peachy copper with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic finish. The texture was soft, slightly drier but not powdery, and it adhered well enough to bare skin, though it was smoother when applied with a dampened brush. It had opaque color coverage that stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

Celestial Pearl #2

Celestial Pearl #2 has a dirty, yellowy gold base with flecks of pink and gold sparkle throughout. It seemed more nuanced initially, but the base really dominated and the dimension of the shimmer/sparkle got lost. The texture was smooth to the touch, slightly dense initially but seemed to soften and become a little more loosely-pressed after two uses. It had opaque color coverage that applied evenly but had some fallout during application. It showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear and had light fallout over time.

Celestial Pearl #3

Celestial Pearl #3 has a dark peach, slightly translucent base with lighter peachy gold sparkle throughout. The consistency was lightly emollient to the touch, thin but not in a way that impeded application, and was best applied with a dampened brush or a fingertip for the smoothest application with the least fallout. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that lasted well for eight hours.

Celestial Pearl #4

Celestial Pearl #4 is a medium, coppery brown with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was soft, slightly firmer and on the thinner side, but I didn’t have any real issues applying and blending it out. This shade wore well for seven hours before fading on me.
