Charlotte Tilbury Original is a very warm-toned, light gold with a luminous finish. It is a permanent highlighter that retails for $38.00 and contains 0.4 oz.
Charlotte Tilbury Original Hollywood Beauty Light Wand ($38.00 for 0.40 oz.) is a soft, champagne gold with warm, peachy undertones and a fine, pearly sheen. It had a luminous, high-shine finish on my skin that didn't emphasize my skin's natural texture and was somewhere between radiant and dewy--more sheen than glossiness, though. Per the brand, it's supposed to have an "extreme Hollywood luminous finish ... that imparts high gloss, brightening and highlighting effects," which I'd completely agree with.
The liquid highlighter pushes through a soft, cushioned applicator (which I did not find particularly ideal for long-term storage/use), which certainly worked for depositing and gently diffusing the product on the skin, but it worked just as well with fingertips or synthetic cheek brushes and I didn't have to worry about getting base products onto the included applicator. It had a fluid, more gel-like consistency that spread easily across the skin and diffused easily along the edges. It does dry down quickly, though I didn't feel like I had to work at warp speed to get the product blended out but I wouldn't dilly-dally either. It wore well for nine hours on me with minimal fading.
