A dupe for Charlotte Tilbury's Dolce Vita Palette

You might remember a couple of weeks ago when I reviewed my beloved Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita palette that I mentioned I had found a very similar budget palette that I wanted to share with you. It is not an exact dupe, but it's pretty damn close & for the many people who don't have £38 to spend on an eyeshadow quad (or just don't want to!), this might be just the product for you!

The product concerned is from Rimmel & it is their Glam'Eyes HD 5 Colour Eye Shadow palette in Brixton Brown. Now obviously the packaging of the two products is miles apart & I must admit that the Rimmel packaging is very flimsy but at that price, I won't complain too much! Although my photo doesn't show it very well, the russet shade, which is in the centre of the Rimmel palette and the top right of the Charlotte Tilbury palette, is very similar - the CT one is slightly more brown in tone. The top left in the CT palette and top right in the Rimmel palette are almost identical, as are the bottom right in the CT palette & bottom left in the Rimmel palette. The obvious exception is the very pretty glitter shadow in the Charlotte Tilbury palette but apart from that, these palettes are very similar. The pigmentation of both palettes is excellent & the Rimmel shadows are almost as creamy as the CT ones. A primer would be essential to ensure the Rimmel palette would last as long as the CT shadows, but this is an excellent budget palette & definitely one to check out if you like the Dolce Vita but can't justify the price tag.

Do you know of any other dupes for Charlotte Tilbury products? please let me know if you do!

Thanks for reading.

  1. I really want that Rimmel palette! The russet set is to die for, from what I've seen swatched! I think I have a Dior 5 couleurs with a very similar shade though. I'll have to get it to see :D

    Wing me a dream

  2. I still haven't tried anything from CT and I guess if I do it will be purely for the pleasure of owning a luxury product because I think the shades are not that unique and you can easily find cheaper alternatives, just like you did. I'm really intrigued by the Rimmel palette :) x

  3. Rimmel eye shadows are surprisingly good and even better now I know they are CT dupes! ;) xx

  4. I've not tried many Rimmel products but the ones I have, I really disliked. I don't know whether I've just had bad luck but I'm never drawn to their products or new releases because of it. However I'll have a look at that palette when I'm next in store because the shades look nice x

  5. For £6.99, you can't go wrong!

  6. I love my CT luxury items, but for £6.99 this is pretty great! xx

  7. It's a long time since I tried any Rimmel eye shadows, but had this really caught me eye! xx

  8. I have to say that this really impressed me & Rimmel wouldn't be my favourite budget brand - hard to beat this though! xx

  9. I haven't had the pleasure of trying any CT products so I can't say I know any dupes. But I hope to one day! :-)

  10. I had no idea this was a dupe, great find! I still would splurge on the CT as it's such a luxurious product, but if I didn't have the money this would be amazing x

  11. That's it, CT is in a league of its own, but this is purse-friendly! xx

  12. What a great find! I would love to spend on CT products, as I haven't had cahnce to try any yet, but seeing as the Rimmel palette is a great dupe, I think I will purchase that first!


  13. It's not as luxurious as the CT palette, but it's definitely a good dupe & a great price! xx


I really love to read your comments & appreciate all of them!
