Last week, Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer ($55.00 for 0.56 oz.) launched in four shades along with a new, all-matte eyeshadow quad. I had some (unresolved) issues applying and blending out Tan and Deep (what’s published is my second and third attempts respectively), so I have to dive into that a bit more. The other two are so light that it was harder to tell if they had similar issues, so I’ll be looking more closely at those as well.

I am happy with the bronzers I have so would not go for these but I suspect that when you are finished, there will be many, many dupes of the bronzers and the palette. But CT never showed much imagination in my view.

I think the jump between fair and medium is too much. To me fair looks too light for me, at NC15. I don’t even think that would work on a NC10… I love her regular airbrush pressed powder so I am sure I’d like these. Thank you for swatching them!

I was thinking the same. I’m currently about an NC12, and while it looks like it would show up on me, the tone is just wrong… Perhaps she intentionally did this, with the idea of filling in the gaps at a later time…?

I love the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder, so this is a must try for me in Medium or Tan. Too bad there are such big jumps between the shades. I’m passing on Desert Haze right now. I have the Transform-Eyes quad and close-enough shades in other CT palettes. I’d like to see more matte eyeshadow quads.

Hmmm…not sure if Medium would be enough for my (still!) NC35/Fenty 260 face. But Tan looks VERY intense. Like it could be far too much and overwhelm my face with an overly dense, unbuildable formula.

A lot of youtubers I follow (nc40-43) it still shows on them. The tan they have to be real careful with. So I think medium will work for you. I just finished watching Shahleena (nc40)- it has a little pinkness on her though. That you have to consider.

I’m interested in these because I love her powders. I’m about an NW25 in MAC and close to an 2.0N in Dior face and body. Would the medium work? The Tan one looks really deep.

I’m fair, very fair and the fair bronzer is too lite for me. As much as I love her pressed powder I’m very happy with my Marc Jacobs bronzer.

How do they compare to the bronzers in the CT Instant Palettes please? I love the bronzer in the Beauty Glow Instant Palette. Is that similar to the Light Airbrush bronzer? Thanks.

I’m impatient so I bought the Fair shade from the CT website. Just got it, and it’s like a tinted translucent powder. Thanks to quarantine I’m still reaching for my winter shade of foundation in nearly June (in Florida), so I’m pretty fair right now and this shade of bronzer is ridiculous! Like, who is this for?

I’m thinking no to all the bronzers and to the palette. I have brown eye shadows, loads of them, they’ll last me my lifetime and then some.
I don’t use bronzers, and now I feel weird for saying that, I think all they do is make me look a bit dirty. Oh, dear, I’m the most boring makeup lover in the world right now 😀

I love this formula as a finishing powder – I’m not sure about a bronzing powder though in this formula. I prefer her film star bronze and glow.

My sister’s thinking of getting this for my birthday but I told her to hold off until I see your review. If they’re not any good (or the shades aren’t a fit) I’ll give her some other ideas lol. I do hope the gaps in the shades are meant to be filled later (and would love a few ever darker ones for my darker-skinned beauty-lovers).

I love her Finishing powder but I feel like there should be another shade between medium and tan. The shades jump from light to dark…none of them will work for me. Thank you for saving me money after seeing your review!!
