CHARLOTTE TILBURY THE ICON PALETTE – REVIEW + SWATCHES + LOOK | Maryam Maquillage


Welcome to my channel guys I’m Maryam and
in today’s video I am doing a full thorough honest review plus swatches and a look with
the new The Icon palette by Charlotte Tilbury, this is a brand new palette that just launched
on Sephora.com and on Charlotte Tilbury’s website, I feel like I’m one of the first
beauty Influencer to get my hands on this because I just attended her event, I met Charlotte
in person for the first time ever, she is a rock star who hangs out with rock stars
and this is exactly what this palette was inspired by, that said she is not immune to
my criticism and I wanna put team truth on this palette, I wanna try it out, I wanna
give you guys the full scoop, the T and nothing but the truth, watch until the very end for
the verdict. I hope you guys enjoy this video, thank you
for watching, for subscribing, for turning on those notifications and let’s get to this
Charlotte Tilbury’s The Icon Palette full thorough review, swatches and tutorial. Okay you guys let’s talk about all the details
of this new limited edition The Icon palette by Charlotte Tilbury, this product is officially
available at Sephora, also at Charlottetilbury.com, $65.00 kinda pricey, yes but not as pricey
at Pat McGrath or Natasha Denona just saying, and there are 12 shades, limited edition shades
all multi-dimensional, all really beautiful and totally up my alley, totally something
that I would use, not just for a date look or a dramatic look but also for an everyday
look. I feel like there is a lot of range and a
lot of options in here. So, because I went to the event, I know a
little bit more about this palette than what’s online, so let go ahead and share some facts
with you. Alright so on the back of this product you
can see that each color category or each row of colors is broken into a day look, a date
look, a diva look and a disco eyes look, so a night look. You could use each one of these rows for an
individual look. I think I wanna dip into the shadows that
I’m mostly attracted to, which are all of these. So during Charlotte’s event she was explaining
her inspiration behind this palette and she was talking about how she used to party back
in the day with all these celebrities, rock stars and super models, she was talking a
lot about Abiza and she was talking a lot about all the celebrities at the time and
how she was so inspired by them and by their make-up and by their clothing, this palette
was born from that inspiration. I thought that was pretty cool and I feel
like it’s definitely very representative of that era, I’m into it and I definitely wanna
try it. I think I wanna do some swatches first, so
I am going to call in my swatch model (rings bell) I need your sexy arms. Ohhh yes, I think I’m just gonna go row by
row, swatching this shade first, boom baby boom that is pretty, oh my God (laughs). Lee: Oh wow that’s crazy. Maryam: I don’t even like swatches but these
are impressive so far. Lee: For someone who doesn’t like swatches,
I mean (laughs). Maryam: I mean they are all performing, man
that’s really nice, oh my God. Here comes that green, ohhh no she didn’t
with that blue. Why would you wipe them off they are so nice. Okay so clearly it swatches brilliantly but
we really wanna know, how does it perform, how does it look on the actual eye. I think we have come to the point of video
where it’s time to do this look and it’s time to really test out these eye shadows on my
damn face. So, I think I’m gonna grab this brownish color
right here, I don’t exactly recall the name but there definitely are names, I saw them
on the Sephora website. I’m gonna grab this little brownie color which
is somewhere between a matte and a satin, my lids are not even primed, what am I doing
with my life. Gonna use this Morphe brush M576, gonna apply
that to the outer corner of my eye, and just use this as a transition shadow, you guys
already know Charlotte Tilbury products are some of my favorite. Yes, they are super high end and lux and kind
of on the pricey side but they are just so well made, they are just so clever and so
unique, the colors are all individual, they are all custom colors, so it’s not something
that you will find a dupe for anywhere else. I mean this eye shadow is beautiful, I’m just
gonna take a much smaller brush and I’m gonna blend out the edges a little bit because I
want this to be a pinch smokier, nice, very, very, very nice. Alright I’m gonna do the same thing on the
other side, I think that’s enough for this eye shadow, boom I think I wanna pick up a
little bit of that burgundy right here, also another satiny sort of color so not super-duper
shimmery like the rest. Gonna use this E25 brush from Sigma and just
etch out my eye socket, wow you can clearly tell the difference between these two shadows,
they are both very distinctive, I have a little bit of texture on my lids right here, but
with something like this which just has a hint of opalescence it almost disguises it,
you guys see what I am talking about, so far so good, I feel like I owe you guys a life
update video. So much has been going on in my life lately,
I just have so much to share, there has been like an influx of activity. But I have been so busy that I can’t even
grasp it, life update video coming up. Next I think I want to do a little bit of
color, just a little bit of color. I think I wanna go for that blue and maybe
a little bit of that green and do you see how well that picks up with the brush and
how well it applies with the brush. I mean that’s kind of unusual because it swatches
well and it also applies really well with the brush, and even better with the finger
with this one. Alright I’m gonna dab that all over my lid,
nice man that’s nice. I just feel like with this palette gotta dip
into that blue, alright gonna pick up a little bit more on the brush and just kinda blend
those edges, there’s definitely a lot more fall out with this one and I think that came
from the brush usage, but still not a big deal alright next. I’m going for that gold, oh my God, this is
everything you guys, so pretty, gonna add that to the inner corner, oh my God it looks
like gold flakes. Gonna pick up a little bit of this shade right
next to it. Kinda like a champagne color, and I’m gonna
add that right underneath the brow arch, well that’s kind of a lot but I’m obsessed. I think I’m go for the champagne, oh that
is sick, little lighter in the center, bluer on the corners, in that case I’m just gonna
intensify the outer corner one more time, a little bit here boom, boom. Now for the lower lash line I think I wanna
go for this shade here and I’m gonna smoke it and I’m gonna smudge it right underneath
and connect it to my inner corner, connect it to the outer portion, again I don’t have
my kohl pencil and I need my kohl pencil. Lee can you get me my Charlotte Tilbury kohl
pencil. Lee: Okay so Maryam has me looking for the
liner, second draw from the top black and short, yeah that will be easy, ahm no I haven’t
found it, bronzer pencil, I’m pretty sure this is it. Maryam: Thank you Lee, get you a Lee ladies. I’m gonna smudge this right here underneath
my water line, actually I’m gonna line the entire eye with it, I’m also gonna pull it
out in a wing like that, I’m gonna take my teany tiny little brush, this one’s from Wayne
Goss, I am just gonna soften that a bit and blend it with the previous shadow. So the idea is you want this black to be its
blackest, closer to the lashes and to the water line and then you just wanna smudge
it out. Next I’m gonna go back into that shimmery
wine color and I’m gonna add it on top, I’m gonna test out this black. Black looks really good, it swatched amazing,
I mean they all swatched amazing but I really wanna see what this black can do, also wanna
see if there is fallout with this black. I feel like the black is a little bit harder
to use than some of the others, gonna try to use a different brush, oh yeah that definitely
makes a difference. This is the kinda shadow that actually needs
to be grabbed with a brush which is probably why they swatched so well with the finger. This brush that I’m using here is Sigma’s
duo fiber blend E41, I think I’m gonna go back with that very first brown eye shadow,
just add a little bit of it to the outer portion of my transition, like in this area just to
soften that black. I’m gonna go back with the blue and re-apply
wherever I feel like I lost that color. That is looking very festive and very rock
star. I think I’m gonna add just a little bit of
that gold to the center of my lid, I actually wanna see how this shadow applies when it’s
wet so I’m gonna pick some up on my finger, close my palette and I’m gonna spray a little
bit of this Vichy Thermal water or mineral water, wow that definitely apply a lot more
precisely and a lot more pigmented. For my top lash line I wanna use this Feline
flick quick fine line shodo pen, I have never tried this one before, basically it’s a marker,
you guys know I am not a huge fan of marker type liners but this one is pretty good and
it’s pretty precise. The wand is really, really stiff so I think
it’s really good for drawing that really straight line. And now that I’m done with that I think I’m
gonna put that Amber Moon rock ‘n’ Kohl pencil to use and I’m gonna line my water line. I love using Amber Moon on my water line,
it’s much harsh than black but still helps to bring out your eye and just make it a little
bit more smoldering and a little bit more sexy. I am almost done with this look just wanna
add a little bit more of that burgundy right here just to kinda intensify and now I think
I’m ready for my lashes and for the rest of my face. So I’m gonna go apply my lashes and I will
be right back for the rest of the face and for my final verdict, oh my God. Lashes are on, I’m wearing Tarte Wifey lashes
which I think compliments this look pretty well and now I wanna move on to my lips, my
contour and my highlight and blush. For my contour and for my bronzing I’m gonna
be using my Dior Backstage palette that I talk about all the time. This shade right here that I love so much
and I’m just gonna add a bit of warmth and a little bit of color along my hair line,
nothing too crazy, feel like the eyes are really dramatic and very strong even though
I wasn’t really going for that but I let the palette speak for itself, add just a pinch
of contour here, like barely a contour. I don’t know I’m just not into a contoured
look lately. Gonna use a little bit of the shade but a
very, very, very subtle highlight to the back of the cheek bone, I’m gonna reach for my
Bar of Gold palette, also from Charlotte so nice, I’m gonna add that glisten right on
top. I actually think I’m gonna do some blush today;
this is cheek to chic blusher in the shade Ecstasy also from Charlotte Tilbury, so pretty
and flattering. Gonna add that just to the apples and around
the highlighter, okay looking glossy. Now for the lips I wanna do something dramatic
so I am gonna use this Make-up For Ever Liner in the shade 14, lip those corners up fill
in my lip shape just a little bit, then I’m gonna use this new shade Video Vixen from
Charlotte Tilbury’s new collection, oh my God this is so stunning. I don’t know about you but I feel like I’m
looking like a ripe cherry, okay where we going. Here is the look that I came up with using
the brand new The Icon palette by Charlotte Tilbury, the Icon queen what do we think about
this look, do we love it, is it rock star, is it glam, is it too much, is it not enough,
I personally think it’s a very different look for me, it’s not something that I was necessarily
going for when I initially started this video, but it’s definitely something that was kind
of inspired by the palette and by the colors and by all the textures. I think this palette is definitely a gorgeous
over the top, beautiful sparkling palette. Perfect for make-up artists because all of
these colors are so charismatic and there is just so much variety, however I will say
that for someone who is not necessarily a make-up artist, for someone who is just a
make-up enthusiast you might find that this palette is a little bit tricky, these wet
to dry eye-shadows are a very special formulation, so you kinda have to know how to use them. If you haven’t used one of these tightly pressed,
super pigmented type of eye shadow before then you might have a hard time getting the
pigment pay off. I even found myself having a bit of a hard
time with these 2 shadows here, getting them to kinda lay right and blend into each other,
I will also add that you don’t necessarily need to use all of these colors all at once
like I attempted to, you could probably just use it row by row for the day look, for the
date look, for the diva or for the disco and I think you might have an easier time with
that. If you are a make-up artist, especially if
you are a celebrity make-up artist you need to get your hands on this palette. If you are a make-up enthusiast or a make-up
lover you might want to test this out at the store first just to make sure that you are
comfortable with all of these colors, knowing that it is $65.00 and knowing that it is a
little tricky. I am going to give this palette a 9 out of
10 because these are unique colors that I have never seen before, unique formulations,
you get a lot for the $65.00, 12 shades is a lot to ask for from a brand like Charlotte
Tilbury which is high end, those are my 2 cents, I hope you guys enjoyed this video,
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial, my swatches and this first impressions type of review. Let me know what else you wanna see from me,
let me know if you want a simpler look using this palette because I kinda wanna attempt
the simpler look and also any other thoughts, leave them down below, I love you guys as
always, thank you so much for watching, for subscribing, for being awesome, I will see
you in my next video, muah!
