Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow, Airbrush Powder + Matte Revolution Lipstick // REVIEW

If you have ever seen Charlotte Tilbury product and didn't get the feeling of needing them all in your life solely for the gorgeous packaging - what is wrong with you? Charlotte has by far one of the prettiest make up packaging in the entire world. But anyways, besides my love for the look, we shall talk about the actual product.

Filmstar Bronze & Glow

I've always been interested in this, it probably started it all for Charlotte Tilbury if we're being honest. It was the first product from her that got extremely popular within days and suddenly everyone was obsessed with it. I'm just not a contour person so I wasn't ever willing to spend so much money on a product that's only going to be used for half it's purpose.

I had a little extra money left and decided to try out her products one night and obviously got the cult classics for my first run. I have to say I'm quite impressed actually.

Still, the highlighting side is the one that I mostly use and the one I was truly surprised by. Seeing Charlotte Tilbury and the make up she stands for when you think about it, I was just not expecting a blinding highlight from her. I always thought it was more of a sheer, subtle highlighter that's good for no-makeup or minimal make up kind of days but I was wrong. Even though it might not look like a lot from swatching, it is.

It's extremely pigmented and while it's a very natural shade of highlighter, it still gives off an amazing glow on the cheeks that should not be underestimated.

The contour side has a very nice shade, it's not too cool but not too warm either so it gives off a nice, natural shadow on the cheeks. I haven't experimented with it a heck of a lot but I did use it a few times and it was nice to use. It blended nicely and the colour applied evenly onto my face, no streaks or patches.

f.l.t.r.: Matte Revolution Lipstick in "Very Victoria", Bronze & Glow in "Sculpt", Bronze & Glow in "Highlight";

Matte Revolution Lipstick "Very Victoria"

Honestly this lipstick is so incredibly beautiful in every way possible. Not only is the packaging gorgeous, so is the lipstick bullet itself and the formula.

I love the shape these lipsticks have, they're extremely angled on each side which I find makes the application quite easy. The tip is also very sharp so it helps you to perfect and define your lips further.

I'm a big fan of matte lipstick formulas for their look and lasting power, but I hate the fact that my already dry lips dry out even more from them.

This lipstick is really forgiving with dryness and lines on your lips, I find it doesn't accentuate texture on your lips too badly and the formula is somewhat comfortable too. If you want to splurge on a lipstick, I can definitely say that Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks are well worth their price tag.

Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder

This powder really does give you an airbrushed look. Even though I have quite dry skin, it doesn't emphasize any dry patches on my skin at all.

I do have to mention thought that there is quite the powder kickback when I dip my brush into the pan. I can imagine you'd go through the compact a little quicker than normal because of how much kickback there is and how little product it comes with. For example, the MAC Studio Fix powder comes with 15g, my drugstore Catrice pressed powder comes with 9g and has barely any kickback, while the Charlotte Tilbury one only comes with 8g of product for a much higher price tag.

I do love the finish it gives my skin, it does make you look flawless like a porcelain doll but I'm not 100% sure I'd repurchase. I have a few loose powders that I like more than this but as a pressed powder this is great. I mainly use it for touch-ups on the go because a pressed powder is just easier to carry around than a loose powder is. Also the packaging is super slim so it barely uses up any space in your makeup bag.
