Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette - Eyeshadow is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 291.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful palette I waited with bated breath for this palette to become available, and panic bought 2 when the pre-sale went live! I am not sorry that I did, as I have used the palette every day since, and don't know what I'd do without it! The shades are all wearable and beautifully pigmented, and the usual high quality you would expect from CT. The only downside (if there is one) is that the packaging is plastic, and not metal like the Filmstar Bronze and Glow, which I would have expected for the price. The plastic does, however, make the palette lighter and more travel friendly,and I do love the magnetic closure. Love, love, love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different to what I expected, but still enjoyable I purchased this palette in the pre-sale, initially I was a little underwhelmed for the price and having previously owned Charlottes Quads. Upon use and application I really enjoyed the selection and colour pay off. These eye shadows are definitely a completely different formula to the quads, so don't expect the creamy texture, they are a dry, pressed shadow. I genuinely am enjoying using them and didn't really have any issues with how it was packaged, I think it still fits in with Charlottes overall theme :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Uninspired I'll preface this by saying I adore CT products. I had high expectations for this palette and was unfortunately very disappointed. The formula for the eye shadows aren't consistent in the palette as some are fairly pigmented with a soft texture to it and some are chalky and hard to work with. I wouldn't have expected this "meh" quality for the price, especially compared to the eyeshadow quads which I love. Using fingers rather than brushes gives a more pigmented finish.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Underwhelming Overall I am a bit disappointed with this palette. I love CT makeup and own most of her products. This palette however, could have been more pigmented (I don't see much difference with the instant look palettes I own already) and should have higher quality packaging than it does. Considering the price point, I am not impressed with this palette.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just stunning I ordered this on the 24 hour presale and as always it arrived promptly within 2 days. The case is beautiful and deserves to be left out on the dressing table. A very straightforward easy application method. Good pigment and even the day look gives the impression you've spent a long time blending. Five minutes and I was done. I'm going on a four day trip to New York this weekend and this palette will definitely be coming with me. I will also be purchasing another two, when available, for Christmas presents.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this palette. I got this in the presale. I love it. It's so portable. The colours are great. Love the olive in the disco. The colour pay off is different for each trio, but if you watched the video, Charlotte says this is how it's supposed to be. I love that too. This way you won't overdo a day look, or get too heavy handed with other looks. For a first palette offering, this is wonderful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I expected more from the palette It isn't worth the hype. I really didn't think it is worth the money and it is not as good as the quad palette she has. I prefer to have glitter and I expected this to be in the palette. It isn't has pigmented either. I am quite disappointed in the palette. It is simple colours which you could really get from the naked palettes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Palette I was a bit worried, as the shades did not swatch particularly well, but on, they are incredible. The day look is the eye equivalent of My Lips But Better, and is just perfect and glowy. I normally am not fond of super warm shades, but I am very excited to get to play with the Desk look, and this may very well be what converts me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, but the quads are better. I am happy with my purchase. All the colors are beautiful and simply laid out for you. So this is great for a beginner or no hassle kind of gal (like myself). The colors are buttery smooth. I read complaints of glitter fallout, but I had no issues with that. The case is made out of plastic, but it’s still beautiful regardless. I’m an olive tan (I wear medium 7 for reference) all the looks in the pallet shows up on my skin nicely, except for the Day look. The colors are so light and fade on my skin. I almost can’t see it. Maybe I’m not applying it correctly? Also, I don’t use a primer, but I found all the other looks show on my skin easily. I removed a star for two reasons. First, because of the Day look. I was disappointed it didn’t show on my skin. I had to mix it with the Date look in order for it to work. Second, it lacks the glittery vibrancy and pow that (I own the Dolce Vita) the eye quad has. I don’t regret buying this because I’m an attorney so I need a neutral eye pallot for work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too disappinting product I was so eager to buy this on prelaunch day because I love CT products. However, this eye pallette makes me dissapointed a lot. The colors do not show at all even though I already put a lot of product on. I had to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Not sure what everyone is complaining about, the pigmentation is perfect! Love that the colors are laid out from day to night. The colors are quite neutral and versatile.
Date published: 2017-09-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The total all-in-one The colours are amazing, but the pigmentation seems less dense as in the other eyeshadows I tried. Might be a commission to beginner-friendliness? The packaging looks gorgeous but feels plastic. All in all a wonderful all-in-one palette that is a notch less perfect than the other products be this brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Palette This is the first Charlotte Tilbury palette I've owned. I was concerned after I ordered it and then read the reviews that the pigmentation wouldn’t be sufficient but it is! The colours are wonderful and this is the first pallet I've owned where I can wear all the shades. The only three where I find the pigmentation to be a bit light is with the Day colours. The colours stay perfect all day with no creasing. I did find the application video helpful. With regards to the packaging, I think if the case were metal rather than plastic that it would be quite heavy. As it is, it’s lovely. I love this palette so much that I bought another!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effortless Blending First off, no one's shipping compares with Charlotte's. I ordered it the day of the pre-sale, it shipped the same day, and I had received it by the next day. Amazing! In terms of the product itself, it's impossible to mess up - her shadows really do the work for you. The colours are beautiful and flattering, and blend out with almost no effort - seriously, it's like magic. I also gave them a true wear test today - I got a flat tire on the highway and had to sit in the car (turned off) for an hour and a half during a heatwave! My shadow didn't budge, even though I sweated off much of my face! There was a little bit of creasing that was easily fixed, but I tend to over-moisturize my eye area and I get serious creasing on even the best of days. FYI I used the UD Primer Potion underneath. Overall, I'm utterly impressed. I was kind of hoping that the packaging would be metal instead of plastic, but it's what's inside that counts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!!!!! I am a self confessed charlotte tilbury addict!! I never write product reviews, but this is fully deserving of my first one. This palette is even more beautiful in person and the colours really are amazing. I used the desk eye for the first time today it's so pretty, subtle enough to wear all the time but pretty enough that it has that something special about it. I can't wait to try out the other three looks, but worth every penny!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Underwhelmed! As a huge fan of Charlotte Tilbury products, I have to admit to being very disappointed and underwhelmed with the Instant Eye Palette, especially for the price. I expected that this would come in the same beautiful packaging as the Filmstar Bronze and Go or the Filmstars on the Go, but it's made of a cheap plastic instead. The biggest problem, though, is the pigmentation of the shadows... I was so excited to get a full palette of Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadows, but these do NOT live up to the standard of the quads. New CT products were basically an instant-buy for me, but now, I'm going to wait for reviews to come out before I order. Please, listen to customers and make sure new products are made with the same standard as the rest of the line.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I bought this on pre release and initially I was shocked at how small the pans were, there was a finger nail print in one pan. The palette looks beautiful and very useful but the shadows have little pigment and are difficult to build, and even with the use of eye primer they don’t last long on the eye and I don’t have particularly oily eye lids. I’ll stick to the quads in future which are excellent quality unlike this palette which left me disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection in a palette My first palette I reviewed in 2013 when Charlotte first launched....Uptown Girl....five years and five palettes later I have this. This is something special.....excellent value....loads of looks in one beautiful case. For me Charlottes concept in eye palettes has been a game changer......I have bought a lot of her makeup but I have used everything daily and had to repurchase........its not unused in a drawer. That is the difference between Charlotte Tilbury and everybody else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour selection As soon as I saw this was on 24 hour pre-sale, I knew I had to have it. I am a bit obsessed with finding the perfect peach eyeshadow so when I saw exactly that I was delighted. This palette really can take you everywhere- from day to night and everything in between. In spite of loving the peach shade the best, my favourite look is the date look. It's very sophisticated. My only complaint is that the shadow formulation isn't quite as good as Charlotte's other palettes but it's still good. Very handy to have for all occasions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely eye palette I bought this the day it was released . I have looked at other customers reviews and agree to a degree , packaging not as lovely as other palettes . Colours not as pigmented . But I have to say I love this palette . All the colours are fab . So easy to use . I feel this palette is a must . You just can't go wrong . I have just started using Charlotte Tilbury this year , and totally hooked .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Instant Eye Palette I was really looking forward to get this palette, and when I did I was truly disappointed! The eyeshadows are not very pigmented. You need quite a bit to show up on the lids. The shadows are also quit chalky which makes it hard to blend. I was truly disappointed with the price and product!
Date published: 2017-10-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glam palette I love the way the palette gets more and more glam as you go along – I’d easily wear all of the last six but my beauty heart belongs to that metallic olive shade in Disco Eye. http://britishbeautyblogger.com

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful shades that work with most skin colors. The colors are soft and pigmented. I see lots of people here reviewing having issues with 'fallout', but if you use a bit of water to dampen your brush, that will mitigate most issues with the shades. The casing is indeed hard plastic, but the shades are very soft / pigmented for the price I paid for them. They even have a bit of scent to them (which is surprising, but welcomed)! Now, for the actual uses, I have little to no use for the lightest color of the 'day' eye except for as a base, which is fine, I'm considered the lightest tone of 'fair'. Now ladies, don't limit yourself to the looks on the guide! You can use the lightest tone of shimmery from the 'disco' eye on your inner eyelids and the darker shimmer from any other shade to create some unique looks. I haven't found a single one of my friends to dislike the way it looks on them. Fun thing to do : If you have the liquid contour kit, use a bit of highlighter in the corner of your eye as well. So far, it's looked pretty good for me. In the photos I've attached, I'm only using a bit of liquid liner, CT's mascara, and her eyeshadow. No foundation, no nothing, and I've not brushed off any 'fallout' [there was none].

Rated 3 out of 5 by from DISAPPOINTING I purchased two if these one as a gift. The packaging looks good however feels lightweight and inexpensive. I have only used the day trio in the palette and the colours do blend together well. The smoke shade really brings the look together. I have no doubt the other colours will work well together. My major issue with the palette is that it does not contain a applicator brush encapsulated within the palette. If this is truly ment to be a palette to take you from desk to disco you should not have to carry extra brushes with you. If you have this in a clutch depending on its size I doubt you will have room for brushes, or want to carry brushes with you. So would have to use your fingers, which would detract from the finish of the eye look. I do like CT products, so don't like giving negative reviews but this is a major faux pa.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay...but expected better. An okay palette. I was disappointed upon opening because the packaging seems cheap as well as the colors. The pigmentation is not on par with her quads. The quads are excellent and I own them all. I hate to give a bad review as I am obsessed with this line. I will keep the palette and hope it works down the road.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me I was so excited when I bought it in the pre-sale. I adore my Instant Look Palette in Beauty Glow and I have been eyeing the Dolce Vita and Golden Goddess palettes for ages, so when this eye palette was announced I saved up the money to get it! Unfortunately, when I finally received it and opened the package I was disappointed. There were glitter-y particles all over the inside and the casing feels cheap and flimsy. The colors look so much more muted in person than they did in the pictures or even the video CT put up on You Tube for it. Worst of all, when I compared it side-to-side with my Glow palette you instantly saw the quality is not the same. I will be returning this palette and purchasing the other two I have been eyeing instead.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Instant Eye Palette I do like the overall selection of shades, although they for the most part do not have a lot of pigment in them. In particular, even on my very light porcelain skin the prime shade is literally invisible. What surprised me also is the subpar plastic packaging. I don't mind plastic per se as Charlotte's deep maroon colored quads are also encased in plastic, but it is way more sturdy. Furthermore, after only a few uses, my Instant Eye Palette won't close anymore. So travel with it is out of the question, and I just overall feel as if this palette isn't up to the usual high high standard of the line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have! I was very lucky to buy the Instant Eye Pallete during the limited time pre-sale few weekend ago. I am a big Charlotte Tilbury fan and this product is no different - highest quality, stunning selection of colours that match every skin tone, long lasting and blends perfectly! Apart from the recommended looks one can mix the colours and create so many variations which makes this pallete so universal and literally great from day to night. Absolutely love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just as good as the regular quads I'm a working makeup artist and I use most CT products except for the foundations which I don't like. I read the reviews on this and I was a little apprehensive as I had already ordered it, but figured I would just give it away if I didn't like it. I have to say after using it on a bridal party today, I don't know why it has got such bad reviews. The colours are nice, a good selection of matte and shimmers. They were easy to blend with almost no fallout. I prefer this palette to any of the UD Naked palettes (except for Heat which I love). The glitter shades are easily applied with a brush, by if you do want a more intense finish, just pat them on with your finger. I deducted one star for the packaging. Whilst it's not cardboard like some say, it is quite flimsy plastic. Other than that it's a great palette.
