Charlotte Tilbury Medium/Dark Filmstar Bronze & Glow

Charlotte Tilbury Medium/Dark Filmstar Bronze & Glow ($68.00 for 0.52 oz.) is a new, permanent take on the often-raved about Filmstar Bronze & Glow that’s deeper and warmer. I think the texture is a bit more refined–smoother, more finely-milled, and forgiving on the skin–in the original, but this is still quite good. Both shades are good or better pigmentation that was buildable, while they were easily blended out on the skin. I had no problem wearing both powders all day long. I hope the brand will come out with an even darker version and/or cooler-toned varieties.

Charlotte Tilbury x Norman Parkinson Filmstar Bronze & Glow

Charlotte Tilbury x Norman Parkinson Filmstar Bronze & Glow ($80.00 for 0.54 oz.) is a cream-based bronzer and highlighter. Both shades had a really slick, almost greasy feeling to them, which will make them more forgiving even on drier skin types, but I found that it made it hard to get the product to really stay where it was applied and resulted in patchy, more uneven coverage overall. It was shorter-wearing, and the higher slip in the texture made these better suited for bare skin or applied over still-damp base products.

Giorgio Armani No. 18 Fluid Sheer

Giorgio Armani No. 18 Fluid Sheer ($62.00 for 1.0 fl. oz.) is a rich, medium-dark coppery red with lighter gold sparkle. It had sheer coverage, which gives the skin a tint of color and a dewy sheen. A little went a long way, so you can achieve a stronger tint if desired. The sparkle in this shade made it harder to blend over foundation, as it seemed prone to disturbing anything underneath it, but it worked without issue on bare skin. I noticed a few bits of sparkle migrated over night as well, which isn’t a problem I’ve had with other shades in the range. The color itself wore for nine hours. NARS Na Pali Coast (P, $39.00) is less shimmery, more pigmented. MAC Pleasure Model (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented, warmer. Illamasqua Supernatural (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Becca Rose Gold (P, $38.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Becca Blushed Copper (LE, $38.00) is more muted, more pigmented. NARS Fervor (Right) (P, ) is darker, more pigmented. NARS Mauritanie (LE, $39.00) is less shimmery. Becca Papaya/Topaz (P, $27.00) is more shimmery, darker, more pigmented, warmer.
