Charlotte Tilbury Super Blue Eyeshadow Quad is a new, limited edition quad that features three shimmery shades and one matte shade. The formula was different–updated–from the initial quads released; it was more in line with the larger 12-pan palettes the brand has come out more recently (along with the newer quads). The matte was surprisingly nice to work with as it was pigmented but still blendable, while the shimmers were solid and workable (with one being fantastic).
Super Blue #1
Super Blue #1 is a light-medium, peachy gold with strong, warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that felt slightly more loosely-pressed in the pan compared to other shimmers in newer Charlotte Tilbury quads. This resulted in a bit of fallout if I wasn’t careful to avoid it. The color stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading noticeably.
Charlotte Tilbury Super Blue #2
Super Blue #2
Super Blue #2 is a soft, golden bronze with warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was dense without being thick or too firmly-pressed into the pan. It applied beautifully to bare skin and blended out effortlessly. It wore well for eight and a half hours before showing signs of wear.
Super Blue #3
Super Blue #3 is a medium-dark blue with moderate, cool undertones and a sparkling finish. The consistency felt slightly drier and more firmly-pressed into the pan than the other shimmers but was less emollient than the “sparkly” shade often has been in past quads. It had good color coverage applied dry but a dampened brush boosted pigmentation to full coverage and gave it a deeper, brighter appearance. This shade lasted well for eight and a half hours with faint fallout over time.
Charlotte Tilbury Super Blue #4
Super Blue #4
Super Blue #4 is a deep, slightly muted, navy blue with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was smooth and velvety, substantial without being too powdery or too dense, so it applied evenly to bare skin but was blendable along the edges without sheering out too readily. It had rich pigmentation that stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.
