Charlotte Tilbury Fair (2.5) is a very warm-toned, light beige with a luminous finish. It is a permanent highlighter that retails for $44.00 and contains 1 oz.
Charlotte Tilbury Fair (2.5) Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44.00 for 1 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy gold with warmer, more golden undertones and a luminous, pearl-like sheen. The shimmer was very, very fine, so it had a lit-from-within effect rather than appearing overtly shimmery, even when applied as a standalone highlighter.
The consistency was lightweight, fluid, and more gel-like, as it spread readily across bare skin and over foundation without lifting it up. It can be used as a highlighter on the high points of the face or mixed in with various base products (moisturizer, foundation, etc.). It worn well for nine hours as a highlighter and did not impede the wear of my complexion products when mixed in, though it did help everything apply a little nicer.
The coverage was flexible; it was more noticeable and pigmented when patted onto the tops of cheek bones but was readily sheered out for all-over glow if desired. You'll want to get closer to your actual skin tone if you plan to wear it all-over (especially alone), but I find that when mixed with foundation or tinted moisturizer, the shades lose their depth and retain mostly their tone.
