The Charlotte Tilbury Dazzling Diamonds Luxury Palette launched back in September, as part of the Charlotte Tilbury Christmas collection, and it wasn’t a palette I was overly keen to try at first. I really enjoy the Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow formula, but the quad just didn’t wow me like her other four pan Luxury Palettes.
As I mentioned above, the Charlotte Tilbury Dazzling Diamonds Luxury Palette launched as part of the Charlotte Tilbury holiday collection, and I have a feeling it didn’t sell as well as the brand thought it would.
I have received this palette as a free gift when ordering from the Charlotte Tilbury website three times since November, and I also got it in my Beautylish Christmas Lucky Bag, so there’s obviously a lot of these palettes going around.
“Darlings, discover my magical LIMITED EDITION Luxury Palette of Pops in Dazzling Diamonds! It is my BEAUTY SECRET for dazzling smokey eyes!!! The world is in LOVE with the POP shade from my iconic Luxury Palettes, so I have created a mesmerising quad of sparkling, eye-widening secrets!

The Charlotte Tilbury Dazzling Diamonds Luxury Palette is £42 and the shades look so different in real life than they do in the stock images. On their website, this quad looks like it includes a pale pink, a khaki green, a forest green and a brown – but the shades are completely different.
The Charlotte Tilbury Dazzling Diamonds Luxury Palette is housed within the iconic burgundy Charlotte Tilbury compact, with a rose gold starburst design on the lid. Inside the palette, there are four super shimmery and sparkly shades.
There are no matte shades within this quad, which is to be expected, as this palette is part of the brand’s “Palettes of Pops” collection, which is all about standout shades which can be used alone to create a dramatic, beautiful look.
The real descriptions of these four shades in the Charlotte Tilbury Dazzling Diamonds Luxury Palette would be; a pale champagne shimmer with glitter, a light gold shimmer with glitter, a matte black with silver and deep blue shimmer and glitter, and deep gold with glitter.
It’s so strange that the third shade in the palette looks like a green in every single stock image, but it’s actually a deep blue. All four shades contain glitter and sparkle, and it’s the kind of sparkle which does fall out, so I always use this quad before applying any face makeup, otherwise it’d be a glittery mess.
They are all very pretty shades individually, but it’s not a palette I would ever have bought as the shades aren’t particularly unique, and I don’t find that the quad can give you a full eye makeup look.
I know that’s the whole preface of the Palette of Pops palettes, but I’d rather use my Naked Basics Palette and then use one of the shades in the Charlotte Tilbury Dazzling Diamonds Luxury Palette over the lid with my fingertip to add a little sparkle and glitter.
It is in no way a disappointing palette, it’s just not one I find myself excited to be using, whereas the Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look Of Love In A Palettes do. All four shades are pigmented, sparkly and lovely, but it’s just not a wow palette for me, but I’m glad I have it in my collection.
