Charlotte Tilbury The Easy Smokey Eye Palette Review & Swatches

The Easy Smokey Eye

Charlotte Tilbury The Easy Smokey Eye Mini Eye Palette is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette that is exclusive to Nordstrom (available now to cardholders, July 19th to the public).  All six shades performed well; the mattes were soft, velvety, and blendable, while the shimmers were lightly creamy (but not too dense or too thick!), which made all the shades easy to apply and work with.  They had nearly opaque to opaque pigmentation that lasted between eight and eight and a half hours.

It’s a warmer, more slimmed down take on the Stars in Your Eyes palette, which is a bit cooler-toned but has a similar matte formula (though the shimmers in Mini palette were smoother, creamier).  You can see a side-by-side comparison of the relevant shades between the two palettes here.

Easy Smokey Day (Prime)

Easy Smokey Day (Prime) is a bright, peachy gold with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had rich pigmentation in one pass, which adhered evenly and smoothly to my skin. The consistency was soft, lightly creamy, and denser without being heavy or too thick, so it picked up well on a brush and blended out easily. It lasted nicely for eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly.

Easy Smokey Date (Smoke)

Easy Smokey Date (Smoke) is a deep, muted copper-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a smooth, velvety consistency that had good substance to it, so it was a “thicker” formula but still soft and blendable to the touch. It adhered well to bare skin, though it darkened slightly compared to the color as seen in the pan, and was easy to work with it. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me before fading visibly.
