Charlotte Tilbury – The Dolce Vita

DSCN4203Charlotte has make-up down to a tee, and her eyeshadow quads are no exception seeing that I’m slightly obsessed to say the least. I had set my mind on this gorgeousness the moment I laid my eyes on it. Sounds quiet cheesy but the honest truth. Yet another brown-toned palette, you might think, but nothing is less true. The Dolce Vita Luxury Palette may consist of only four shades but makes creating multiple looks effortless. And to let you in to a secret: The one to hold responsible for making me cave is no doubt that burnt amber shade, swoon._DSC5875

Prime is a pale pinkish champagne colour that does a great job at highlighting and brightening.
Enhance is a burnt amber which made my heart flutter wildly and makes the palette worthwhile.
Smoke is a bronzy brown and guarantees instant drama for a more intense look.
Pop is a press-on coppery gold glitter which provides instant glamour.

Doesn’t it have a touch of Tom Ford to itself? The composition of the quads are quiet similar and texture-wise they do come close. All four shades are obviously hand-picked by Mrs. Tilbury herself since they all work harmoniously together: It’s got your day and night looks sorted —  lugging around different quads now belongs to the past. These shades compliment blue-eyed girls best, so they say, but luckily brown-eyed ones can rock about anything.

Charlotte sure knows how to please because it’s no secret that I’ve fallen hard for this warm-hued quad — guilty as charged. The shades are spot on and undoubtedly your best autumn companion. The warm-toned shades are right up my street. The colours apply very smoothly, are richly pigmented, buttery soft, and an ease to blend. I’ve experienced no fall-out and the longevity of the eyeshadows are sublime. You can easily build up the colour that takes your look from daytime to an amped-up night look.




What’s on my eyes?

I’ve applied Prime in the inner corners and on the inner third of my eyelids. Enhance in the outer V. Tiny bit of Smoke in the outer corner to add definition and pressed on Pop in the middle of my eyelids. I’ve smudged Enhance under the lash line and a tiny bit of Smoke at the outer end. You can easily tone it down or smoke it up. I’ve created one that sits right in the middle of the spectrum.


Alice’s favourite eye quad? Slightly obsessed to say the least.

    Oh em gee, this is just gorgeous! I’m surely going to drop by the Charlotte Tilbury counter when I’m in London – I am curious to see the line-up! I kinda have a Tom Ford sort of feeling with these palettes.. The same beauty and luxury!

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Hi Isabelle! Charlotte actually helped Tom Ford create his make-up line so I’m not surprised her palettes have that TF vibe to them. Packaging-wise I must admit that TF wins all the way but that’s what you pay for I guess. You should definitely stop by Charlotte’s counter, I adore every piece I own of her! X

  • jenn @Abeautifulzen

    love that these are so warming leaning. i’m curious about this brand but not so curious to pick something up. that’s the problem with owning so much already, nothing really seems justifiable to purchase :P

      Me too, I’m quiet the obsessive with warm-toned eyeshadows. It’s so flattering and overall awesome. Hahaha, I know that feeling but when the time comes and you fancy new eyeshadows, you definitely need to consider these! ;) X

  • Kiss & Make-up

    It’s sooooo gorgeous and warm! Absolutely love your look.

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Thanks Melissa! X

  • Jaa

    Ahhh Alice! Dolce Vita looks perfect on you!! But what I love more is your lashes! OMG! So long and full! What mascara do you use?

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Aww, thanks Jaa! I’m so sorry for replying this late but I was actually on holidays! Totally Internet-free, feels amazing for once, haha! I used the Chanel Le Volume mascara. ADORE that one! X

    It looks so beautiful in the pan and on you, of course!

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Haha, thanks Nikki! X

  • Sté // StyleLab

    Woah this looks even better than I had imagined. Absolutely stunning! I’m torn between getting this one and the new Tom Ford palette in Nude Dip.

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Oh I hadn’t seen that one yet. I did a quick research and from what I’ve gathered this is more warm-toned and I personally think it’s more unique shade-wise. But yeah, having enough nude palettes said no woman ever. Hihi. Hope this helps! X

  • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

    Ja idd, ben een grote fan van beiden en zoals jij zegt, helemaal perfect voor de herfst! ;) Must have! X

  • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

    Thanks Grace! Of course glitter always wins! ;) And those two are definitely my two favourite shades. X

  • Sandra – MoreStyleThanFashion

    I never heard of this brand before, but wow such beautiful shades of brown. Looks great on you.

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Thanks Sandra! Oh really? I did a little introduction to her brand here:, in case you are interested. I really love her products and in particular this eye quad, as you may have noticed! ;) X

  • Lena L

    You look so pretty! And this quad is gorgeous. I’ve seeing this a lot on the web lately. It is a touch too warm for me to pull off but the composition is certainly brilliant. :)

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Oh thank you so much Lena! Hopefully you can find one to your liking as I reckon they all have the same composition! X

  • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

    Hey Alice, this IS gorgeous on you! I think it might be too warm for me (I know it’s weird, but I can’t seem to pull off very warm eyeshadows effectively), but I love how it looks on you! The sparkle doesn’t seem over the top at all.

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Thanks Sunny, so sweet of you! I have a weakness for warm-hued shades, oops! You can definitely build up the glitter for a more sparkly look but subtle works too! ;) I still had to head out for lunch so I didn’t want to overdo it, lol. Hopefully you can find a more cooler-toned quad in her collection that suits you better! ;) X
