The Sophisticate is my second palette I am showing you from my little Tilbury collection. I had always wanted Tom Ford’s Cocoa Mirage, so I chose this quad of four similar complimentary neutral matte shades. These run cooler than the TF quad. These matte shades need only one swipe for full intense colour. These are the antithesis of chalky ‘blah’ mattes than many other brands just cannot master.
The Prime shade (This is Tilbury talk for all over base shade), is a cool smooth cream which evens out my lids. I am feeling more sophisticated already. The Enhance shade is a soft camel colour, which should be nestled in the outer corner to lay down the colour then swept across the crease. This will add definition to that area. The Smoke shade is a deep warm grey donkey colour, that is good to thicken the lash area, with a wash of this shade or worked into the outer V and along the lower lash line for a more dramatic effect. The POP shade in this palette has no glitter, but is a warm brown with a slight red undertone. All shades are beautiful.

Sometimes a polished look is quite nice even for my sometimes outlandish makeup tastes (Glitter Freak). This is lovely with a bright pout and a simple contoured cheek. I am thrilled with my purchase and if you are looking for a neutral palette that is versatile from a light fresh look to a Penelope Cruz deep sexy eye (yes and sophisticated) this is it.
Team Tilbury all the way!
