Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow
Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow ($65.00 for 0.56 oz.) is compact that features a bronzer and a highlighter. I can see why this is one of the most raved about products from the brand’s offerings, as the texture of both powders is soft, finely-milled, and silky, while the bronzer is not too orange or yellow, and the highlighter is luminous without emphasizing pores. There’s also quite a bit of product in the compact, so it’s a better value than some of the other products in the range. They’re both nice products, and if you regularly bronze/contour and highlight, it may be convenient to have it a single palette together. If you have a healthy stash of bronzers and highlighters, you may find this more dupable.
Filmstar Bronze is a medium tan brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth consistency that applied easily and blended out nicely. It wore well for eight hours on me. Tarte Park Ave. Princess #2 (LE) is darker. IT Cosmetics Warm Radiance (P, $34.00) is more shimmery. MAC Aphrodite’s Shell (LE, $33.00) is lighter. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil (LE) is yellower. MAC Nude on Board (LE, $30.00) is warmer. Chanel Sable Beige (LE, $60.00) is yellower. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Filmstar Glow is a pale, champagne beige with a luminous sheen. It seems almost frosted initially, but it blends to a very luminous, glowing finish that doesn’t emphasize pores or the skin’s natural texture. It reflects light without looking metallic. The powder’s texture is silky, finely-milled, and very blendable. On me, the highlighter stayed on for eight hours before fading slightly. Cle de Peau Sand Beige (13) (P, $55.00) is warmer. Chanel Dentelle Precieuse (LE, $80.00) is darker. Becca Opal (P, $38.00) is darker, more shimmery. Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is lighter, more shimmery. theBalm Mary Lou-manizer (P, $24.00) is yellower. Chanel Mouche de Beaute Illuminating Powder (LE, $80.00) is more shimmery, darker.
