Who has never seen this beautiful limited edition palette while surfing the net? Honestly, guys, I got hooked on it.

I can say it truly that the purchase was spontaneous and wasteful for me. You see, I didn’t need this palette but it was so beautiful and tempting.


Packaging: it’s heavy and plastic. The design is run in the spring and summer shades and it looks really high-end. It has a huge mirror which is really handy to use.


Weight: 3.8 each refill

Shelf life: 30 months of opening

Name: Lightgasm

Made in Italy

Ingredients: free of talc!

Smell: no

Texture: dry, tightly pressed



GLOW Highlighter: gentle shimmer champagne shade with a pink shift

LOVE Bronzer: a shade of tan with red undertones and merely visible glowing bits

GASM Blush: shifting shimmer coral-peach shade

CT Blush: vibrant pink shade with golden flecks. It somehow reminds me of the Nars Orgasm color.


Application: this is where the interesting story begins. I had to use a really stiff and densely packed brush to apply the first bronzing shade, which I actually also ended up swiping here and there all over the refill to pick up the product. Despite all that mess, the bronzer still applies patch-free but you’ll have to spend some time to pack it.


As for the blush, it’s not so troublesome to apply. However, be ready to put on some effort anyway.

I was more or less pleased with the highlighter but its formula seems weird to me. It rings the bell and reminds me of the Tom Ford Moonlight formula, which I didn’t like and gave away a long time ago. Here the formula is better but it’s not what we’re accustomed to getting from a powder texture that we like.


Staying power: excellent, 6-7 hours

Spending: average


Swatch on my hand:

Charlotte Tilbury VS Nars:







Impressions from use: What do I see in the end? I can see a lot of glow and almost no color finish. This product is complicated and not everyone will like it. It’s for more subtle makeup looks. The palette is more like topping one.


The shades are lovely but they look as though glassed, wet and sheer on my skin.

Maybe, if you get inspired by the makeup artist Nam Vo, you’ll get this palette and fall for it.


I was also upset to find out that the palette already looks worn out, even though I’ve used it only 2-3 times. As far as I know, all the Charlotte Tilbury palettes have this tendencies in common. Maybe that’s their marketing play?


Overall thoughts: my rate has nothing to do with the price I had to splurge on it. It comes only with my higher expectations, which I got through Instagram.

You see, no instructions of use no tips or tricks on how to use it right were given.

Just “YOU NEED IT,” thought that was translated through the screen and actually made me buy it.

I liked the product and I’ll keep on using it but its function and application issues will be something out of the comfort zone for a regular makeup user.


Price: $75

Rate: 4 stars


The bottom line: for me, this product has the same concept as the Guerlain Meteorites or Hourglass powders. Some people live their lives for them, while others take them as a waste of time and money. So, think twice before filling in your collection with this palette because it isn’t a must-have indeed.
