Charlotte Tilbury Tan/Dark (6.5) is a moderately warm-toned, light-medium brown with a luminous finish. It is a permanent highlighter that retails for $44.00 and contains 1 oz.
Charlotte Tilbury Tan Dark (6.5) Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44.00 for 1 oz.) is a medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It was less red-orange compared to Dark (7) and more golden-orange, which appeared a little lighter when applied and blended out.
The product had a fluid, more gel-like consistency that made it easy to spread across larger areas (like a primer), mixed in with base products (like moisturizers or foundations), or patted on the high points of the face as a standalone highlighter (or as a bronzer for my skin tone). It had sheerer coverage that was less impactful when mixed in with products, as expected, and more medium, buildable coverage when applied as a standalone product.
The finish was glowing but not overtly shimmery, so it didn't emphasize my skin's natural texture. It stayed on well for nine hours before fading a bit as a standalone product and didn't impact the wear (longer or shorter) of base products but helped foundation apply a bit more consistently and smoothly.
