Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette Review & Comparison of All Three: Natural Beauty, Seductive Beauty, Beauty Glow

Charlotte Tilbury Palette Comparison

After buying Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette in Beauty Glow and falling in love with it, my curiosity got the better of me. When the other two showed up in her summer sale, I scooped them up pretty quickly. Charlotte Tilbury palettes make doing your makeup virtually effortless whether you’re getting ready for work or traveling. I’ve used my Beauty Glow Palette for both and find that not having to fumble around for multiple products makes getting ready so much quicker and easier. The quality of the palettes is phenomenal. The formula of her powders is ultra-silky and fine, making the texture simply lovely and all of the products easy to apply and blend. I’ve gotten so much use out of my Beauty Glow Palette (as you’ll see below in the photos) and know I’ll get just as much use out of the other two palettes as well.

I know when I was trying to decide which palette to initially get, it was confusing for me. I could find swatches of single palettes or swatches comparing one palette with another. But rarely, do you see comparisons of all three.

So naturally, as soon as I had all three in my hands, I stopped to take photos in hopes they could help someone else out who was having trouble deciding which palette to get…or which palette to avoid.

One thing to note about my swatches is that they’re not super saturated because that’s not how these products apply. I did finger swatches with one or two swipes. Some are more sheer than others. But to show solid lines of saturated, pigmented swatches would be sorely misleading for these palettes. Charlotte Tilbury Palettes are meant to bring out your features and enhance your beauty, not mask it with overwhelming color.

To see what each palette looks like on my face, go here.

The philosophy behind Charlotte Tilbury’s Palettes is to easily do a quick face using her numbers system. The eye brighten shadow is used all over the light as a base and to brighten the eyes. The eye enhance shade is used in the crease or on the lid, while the smoke shade is used to smoke out the outer v of the lid and/or along the bottom lash line. The face products include a cheek swish for all over the cheekbone, a cheek pop for a pop of color on the apples of the cheeks and a bronzer to contour and bronze the face. Easy peasy!

Now, if you’ve seen my Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Glow Review & Demo video, you know that I often have alternative ways of using my palette. There are no hard rules. Be creative!

The Palettes

Charlotte Tilbury palettes appear similar in structure yet different in tone. Yet not one of them is completely cool or completely warm. This is where the confusion lies for many people.

What you may notice first off is how neutral Natural Beauty looks compared to the other two palettes. Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette in Natural Beauty was Charlotte’s first palette and seems to be her most popular and classic palette. It’s truly the most neutral and the lightest palette of the bunch.

The Beauty Glow Palette is warmer, more vibrant and deeper than Natural Beauty…EXCEPT for the bronzer that’s a tad bit lighter than the bronzer in Natural Beauty. This is odd to me for a palette that’s supposed to give a sunkissed glow.

I wasn’t expecting to like Seductive Beauty. I kept reading how cool it was. But I find the enhance shadow to be more of a taupey silvery gray than a true cool gray and the palette very wearable for my warm light/medium skintone. This palette has my favorite blushes of the group.

In looking at the shadows, you can see that Charlotte likes shimmer. What I like about her formula is that once applied to the eye, the shimmer reads as more of a glowy sheen rather than glittery shimmer. I rarely wear shimmer from lash to brow anymore. But I don’t hesitate with these palettes. It’s definitely not too over the top for my over-4o lids.

Natural Beauty has the lightest shadows with the least amount of pigment. What I like to do with this palette is apply the brighten shade all over, the enhance shade on the lid, the palette’s bronzer in the crease/transition area and the matte smoke shade in the outer corner. Beauty Glow has lovely warm toned shadows. I find them easy to work with and very versatile to use. They truly give a lovely warm, flattering look.  Seductive Beauty is the only palette with only shimmers. This palette also has the most pigment. I find the shadows in the Seductive Beauty Palette to be warm enough that they’re flattering to my warm skin and blue eyes.

This angle shows you the peachiness of Beauty Glow’s Enhance Shade and the taupiness of Seductive Beauty’s. I was apprehensive of Seductive Beauty prior to purchasing it, thinking this shade would be too cool. But it’s a lovely silvery taupe that’s extremely flattering on my warm skin and blue eyes.

I don’t find highlighter swatches to be that great usually since they appear one way in a swatch and look completely different when applied to the face. But this may give you some idea of the shade differences. I added Filmstar Bronze & Glow for comparison purposes.

I was a bit apprehensive about Seductive Beauty’s highlighter with its peachy pink golden tone. In the swatches, it blends into my skin tone. But once on the skin, it gives my blush a lovely golden sheen. If you have warm skin and want a subtle glow, you’d like this one. The other three fall into the champagne highlight spectrum. Filmstar Bronze and Glow has the most pigment, while Beauty Glow is slightly icier than Natural Beauty. Natural Beauty has the most subtle of the champagne highlights.

Filmstar Bronze & Glow leans a little warmer than both Natural Beauty and Beauty Glow. Natural Beauty’s bronzer is (surprisingly) slightly deeper than Beauty Glow’s bronzer. I don’t quite understand the reasoning behind that since overall, Natural Beauty is the most subtle palette of the bunch. All three of the lighter bronzers on the left are neutral/cool toned and can be used for contouring or bronzing. I often use them as transition shades on my eyes as well. The bronzer in the Seductive Beauty Palette has a reddish undertone and the most pigment of the bunch. It’s a lovely bronzer and is gorgeous once blended into the skin.

Charlotte Tilbury’s cheek shades have a lovely sheen to them that really warm up and give life to the face. The shades she put in her palettes are interesting yet perplexing to me. It seems that Beauty Glow is the ONLY palette where the Cheek Swish shade is deeper than the Cheek Pop shade…and when I say deeper, I mean DEEPER. I have to use a very light hand and a duo fiber/skunk brush to apply it because it’s SO DEEP. The pop shade is a nice vibrant warm coral. Natural Beauty, of course, has the most subtle cheek colors. Seductive Beauty, despite being known for its cool shadow, has gorgeous warm peachy cheek shades. The formula is beautiful and super silky in all three palettes.

While I enjoy each palette for different reasons, I understand everyone can’t have all three. In a nutshell, I think Natural Beauty is great for enhancing your features if you have a light to light/medium skin tone. It’s not going to give a super dramatic look but will play up what you have and make you feel more beautiful in a subtle way. Either one of the other two can work for multiple skin tones to give a subtle or a more dramatic look. This is where preference comes in. If you gravitate towards warm bronzy shadows, then go for Beauty Glow. If you like a taupey neutral look, then Seductive Beauty will work for you. They’re all lovely in their own way and the quality can’t be beat. If you want a one stop shop that’s perfect for hurried mornings or for travel, look no further!

      I don’t know how I missed this! Sorry! I think natural might be a bit light and the other two would probably work better! I really love both of those but gravitate toward Beauty Glow a wee bit more! 🙂
