Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Blush Glow

    July 10, 2018

    Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Blush Glow (£60) is a perfect example of the old adage “a little goes a long way”. I’ve been using it on and off for the last month and have come to the conclusion that it is definitely not a product to be at all heavy-handed with!

    Encased in a beautiful rose-gold compact with an art deco-style design, Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Blush Glow is an expensive, luxury buy which will enhance any dressing table or handbag. Thankfully its contents, combined with its presentation, justify the expense – and it’s likely to last a long time.

    The two shades of powder in the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Blush Glow are a subtly shimmering bronzer which can be used to contour the features and give it a sun-kissed look, and a soft pink blusher which contains finely crushed pearls. The aim is to create the overall effect of a youthful, healthy glow.

    I am very fair-skinned and have found that less is more when it comes to Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Blush Glow: the pigment is very strong so just a soft sweep of the brusher is usually enough and it is definitely best to proceed with caution, applying just a little to begin with and gently building it up if necessary. (I looked like Aunt Sally the first couple of times I used it.)

    Ditto for the bronzer part which also is highly pigmented. My advice? Proceed with caution! Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Blush Glow is a lovely product which will give your complexion a lift, but if you’re pale and/or not used to bronzer, it will require a bit of practice before you get the results you’re after, and probably with a bigger brush (or two) than the one it comes with!
