Medium (4)

Charlotte Tilbury Medium (4) Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44.00 for 30.00 oz.) is a light-medium beige with warm, golden undertones and a luminous sheen. This was the least warm-toned shade that I’ve swatched within the formula, so I could see it being more versatile across undertones as a result. The texture was smooth, lightweight, thin, and fluid without being watery (more like a cross between water and gel), which helped it blend well with moisturizer, primer, or foundation or be spread across larger areas (like all over the face). The doe-foot applicator made getting just a touch out easier for highlighting the high points of the face, though it was less useful for getting product for mixing in.

It worked well all-over the skin for a dewier finish that paired well with buildable coverage foundation (full coverage often covered the effect too much), strategically applied to high points of the face (either before or after foundation), and as a primer to help base products go on more smoothly. As a standalone highlighter, this shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours.

Formula Overview

$44.00/1.00 oz. - $44.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be a "customizable complexion booster" that can be used as a primer, highlighter, or mixed with base products. The line includes seven shades, like a more typical foundation or concealer range, but they have sheerer coverage and fine pearl, so there is some flexibility, though for added luminosity (but not altering color) all-over, one would want to choose a shade closer to their actual skin tone.

It has a jumbo-sized, doe-foot applicator, which I preferred for spot highlighting and priming but isn't as functional for mixing in with base products (compared to a pump). I find that the lighter shades look very similar when mixed with foundation or layered under it (I'm wearing Fair mixed with my foundation here).

Tan (5)

Charlotte Tilbury Tan (5) Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44.00 for 1.00 fl. oz.) is a medium yellow with a warm, golden sheen and strong, warm undertones. I’d consider the shade to be more on the “medium” to “medium-tan” side of the spectrum over “tan.” It’s a very flexible and versatile product, though, so when sheered out and spread across the skin for all-over priming or mixed in with base products, it will definitely stretch across more skin tones. It should add some warmth, though it may be far too yellow for some complexions. I wish it was a bit more neutral or slightly rosier compared to the color for greater versatility across undertones.

I’m light to light-medium, and I can get away with wearing it as a targeted highlighter, which adds slight warmth, or sheered out along the perimeter of my face for a slightly bronzed, warmed-up effect. The consistency is thin, gel-like, and smooth with a lightweight feel that spread well across my skin, mixed nicely with moisturizer and foundation, and worked well patted on top of skin (bare or with foundation) as a standalone highlighter.

It’ll be key to pick a foundation without full coverage if you want to layer this product underneath it or else the foundation will cover the majority of the effect (if using full coverage, I’d recommend mixing it in with the foundation or applying in top, as it’s still drying, and gently dabbing and blending on high points).

For me, it wore well for eight and a half hours on my cheeks as a standalone highlighter. As a primer, it helped my makeup go on more smoothly and gave the end result a dewier, more luminous finish (but not oily); it didn’t lengthen or shorten the wear (but didn’t claim to lengthen).

Light/Medium (3)

Charlotte Tilbury Light/Medium (3) Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44.00 for 1.00 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, orange-leaning gold with warm undertones and a luminous, glowing sheen. This shade definitely had more depth than Fair or Light (both of which were more close in depth), so for all-over use and mixing, it should be most appropriate for light to medium skin tones. I’m light to light-medium, and it warmed up my natural skin tone but not in a way that felt like I had just self-tanned, so I could get away with using this shade all-over for a slightly warmer look overall.

As a standalone highlighter, it gave a dewy, luminous sheen that was a pinch warm but not orange against my skin tone, which I was happy to see as the swatch had me concerned! The texture was smooth, lightweight, and spreadable with a thinner, gel-like feel that was emollient enough to slide well over skin but absorbed quickly and mixed well with moisturizer and foundation without significantly altering their texture or application. It applied well over my bare skin as well as patted on top of foundation. For more targeted application, I like using my fingertips, as I just find I get the best blend and least chance of movement in base products (in general, across liquid and cream formulations).

I also liked taking this particular shade along the perimeter of my face (like a bronzer), diffusing with fingertips or a lightly dampened sponge, and then layering foundation. It’ll be key to pick a foundation without full coverage if you want to layer this product underneath it or else the foundation will cover the majority of the effect (if using full coverage, I’d recommend mixing it in with the foundation or applying in top, as it’s still drying, and gently dabbing and blending on high points).

It wore well for eight and a half hours well as a standalone highlighter, and as a primer, it didn’t extend the wear that I could tell, but it didn’t shorten the wear either and definitely made my skin appear a bit smoother and glowier, just as it was marketed to do as a primer.

Tan/Dark (6)

Charlotte Tilbury Tan/Dark (6) Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44.00 for 1.00 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a luminous, dewy sheen. Again, I’d classify it more as medium deep to tan, and there’s one deeper shade (that I don’t have) in the range. Because the formula is sheerer and designed to be mixed in or spread across a larger area (as a primer) as well as a highlighter, each shade stretches further across skin tones, but the color is undeniably warm and likely will read almost orange on cooler complexions.

It had the same fluid, lightweight, thinner gel-like texture as the other shades in the range, and the same buildable coverage that went from sheer to medium depending on application and placement. I applied it as a standalone highlighter, and it was more like a luminous bronzer (though it ran a bit orange for my preference), and it was a bit too dark for me to mix in with my moisturizer or foundation (which is as expected, since the shade range is designed to correspond with foundation matches). If this was an actual foundation, I wouldn’t have tested the shade, but since it can be used as a highlighter as well, I did want to give it a good try.

It wore well for eight and a half hours as a standalone highlighter, and it applied well over bare skin or layered on top of foundation. As a primer, it helped my base apply more evenly and gave a softly luminous finish (along with noticeable depth and warmth, which wouldn’t be apparent for a medium to tan skin tone). It didn’t extend nor shorten the wear of my base when I used it as a primer or mixed in with foundation, though it did not claim to improve longevity.

Fair (1)

Charlotte Tilbury Fair (1) Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44.00 for 1.00 fl. oz.) is a soft, very light peach with a fine, pearlescent sheen and lightly dewy finish. My favorite way to use it as a highlighter on top of foundation or mixed in with foundation, though it also worked well fully layered under my foundation or as a standalone highlighter on bare skin.

The texture was smooth and lightweight, like a thin gel-based primer in feel, so the product easily spread across my skin for an all-over application (worn as primer, per the brand), and it made my skin look radiant. I can see one person finding that finish to look “oily,” and another person to feel like it looks beautifully glowing–it’s definitely very radiant on its own, so I’d recommend strategically applying it over bare skin, like a very diffused highlighter, or mixing it in with moisturizer if you’re someone who wants glow but not full-on dewiness.

I also liked to gently swiped the product on using the included doe-foot applicator on the high planes of my face, diffused and blended (over a greater area than I would have if using it specificially to highlight my cheekbones) and gently dabbed foundation over it. I recommend using a sheer to medium coverage over something full coverage, because full coverage will work better when it’s mixed in otherwise the coverage level will tamp down the luminosity quite a bit.

As a standalone highlighter, it gave me a lit-from-within-glow that was luminous but not tacky or truly glossy, just looked dewy on my skin. It worked as well over bare skin as it did blended on top of foundation for me. On its own, it lasted well for nine hours with minimal fading and no migration as a cheek highlighter. As a primer, it seemed to help my makeup go on more smoothly but didn’t notice any extension of wear (but no shortening either); though the brand made no claim about it extending longevity, only that it would improve the finish and give skin a glow (so I didn’t rate it down for not extending the wear).

Light (2)

Charlotte Tilbury Light (2) Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44.00 for 1.00 fl. oz.) is a soft peach with warmer, yellow undertones and a soft, luminous sheen. It performed very much in line with what it was supposed to; it worked well as a luminizing primer and helped my foundation apply more smoothly and last a little longer while illuminating the skin as a separate highlighter.

As a spot highlighter, patted onto the tops of my cheekbones, it applied evenly and smoothly with noticeable glow and luminosity and had excellent blendability over base products. It wore well for eight and a half hours as a cheek highlighter. It had medium, buildable pigmentation when I applied it that way, but it was a very fluid product (almost like a very fluid gel, because it wasn’t quite as watery or as thin as a typical, liquid highlighter). It felt like a thinner primer more so than a liquid highlighter.

The product can easily be sheered out for all-over use on the face as primer–and it did smooth out pores and made my skin look slightly more even as light bounced off of it–or mixed in with foundation to add a bit more glow to the foundation’s finish. If using it as a primer, I would do so with a more buildable coverage foundation, otherwise I’d mix it in with a higher coverage foundation to get a visible effect. It has a jumbo-sized, doe-foot applicator, which I preferred for spot highlighting and priming but isn’t as functional for mixing in with base products (compared to a pump). I find that the lighter shades (Fair, Light, Light/Medium) look very similar when mixed with foundation or layered under it (I’m wearing Fair mixed with my foundation here).
