Charlotte Tilbury Tan (5.5) Hollywood Flawless FilterCharlotte Tilbury Tan (5.5) Hollywood Flawless Filter ($44.00 for 1 oz.) is a darker, peachy gold with sturdy, heat undertones and a smooth, luminous sheen. It had a really lit-from-within glow, whether or not utilized as a standalone highlighter on the excessive factors of the face or blended in with base merchandise (and even utilized all-over as a skinny layer of product). The feel was light-weight, spreadable, and gel-like, which made it straightforward to use to reveal pores and skin or over basis (because it didn’t carry) and mix it out.
The protection different based mostly on software, which was as anticipated; it was extra buildable and had larger protection when used as a standalone cheek product, however it sheered out readily when blended in with base merchandise, so the shade itself was considerably versatile (however higher fitted to medium to tan pores and skin tones). The pearl was very nice, so it wasn’t overt and by no means emphasised my pores and skin’s pure texture. It stayed on effectively for eight and a half hours as a standalone product and didn’t prolong nor shorten the damage of base merchandise when used as a primer or blended with basis.

The system is meant to be a “customizable complexion booster” that can be utilized as a primer, highlighter, or blended with base merchandise. The road consists of seven shades, like a extra typical basis or concealer vary, however they’ve sheerer protection and nice pearl, so there’s some flexibility, although for added luminosity (however not altering colour) all-over, one would wish to select a shade nearer to their precise pores and skin tone.
It has a jumbo-sized, doe-foot applicator, which I most popular for spot highlighting and priming however is not as purposeful for mixing in with base merchandise (in comparison with a pump). I discover that the lighter shades look very related when blended with basis or layered underneath it, so the shade vary is extra versatile than it may appear (for some pores and skin tones).
The feel was clean and light-weight, like a skinny gel-based primer in really feel, so the product simply unfold throughout my pores and skin for an all-over software (worn as primer, per the model), and it made my pores and skin look radiant. I can see one particular person discovering that end to look “oily,” and one other particular person to really feel prefer it seems to be fantastically glowing–it’s positively very radiant by itself, so I might suggest strategically making use of it over naked pores and skin, like a really subtle highlighter, or mixing it in with moisturizer in the event you’re somebody who needs glow however not full-on dewiness.
I additionally favored to softly swiped the product on utilizing the included doe-foot applicator on the excessive planes of my face, subtle and blended (over a larger space than I’d have if utilizing it particularly to spotlight my cheekbones) and gently dabbed basis over it. I like to recommend utilizing a sheer to medium protection basis over one thing full protection, as a result of full protection will work higher when it is blended in in any other case the protection stage will tamp down the luminosity fairly a bit.
As a standalone highlighter, it gave me a lit-from-within-glow that was luminous however not cheesy or really shiny, simply appeared dewy on my pores and skin. It labored as effectively over naked pores and skin because it did blended on high of basis for me. By itself, it lasted effectively for 9 hours with minimal fading and no migration as a cheek highlighter. As a primer, it appeared to assist my make-up go on extra easily however I did not discover any extension of damage (however no shortening both); although the model made no declare about it extending longevity, solely that it might enhance the end and provides pores and skin a glow (so I did not price it down for not extending the damage).
