My obsession with Charlotte Tilbury products continues….they are just my kind of makeup products, so wearable, so easy to use and I love that they produce natural, glowy makeup looks that seem to suit such a variety of skin tones and ages. This palette is a new addition to the Charlotte Tilbury range and has launched after the huge success of her Filmstar Bronze and Glow Palettes which are duo’s containing a Bronzer and Highlighter. This new palette is similar in the sense that it is also a duo palette but this time the palette contains a Bronzer and Blusher, which are just as heavenly as they look and are a dream to apply.
In true Charlotte Tilbury elegant and classic style, the sleek palette comes in a beautiful shiny rose gold, with a really decent size mirror inside and 2 generously sized products…the Bronzer and the Blusher. I do think Charlotte Tilbury has some of the best packaging around, her products seem to ooze glamour and look so decadent on a dressing table. The added bonus touch with this product is that it comes with its own mini powder brush which is just as pretty as the palette, and is a perfect size for travelling and for your everyday makeup bag.
The colours compliment each other perfectly and together produce a beautiful, healthy glow to the skin, again another reason why I love Charlotte Tilbury products so much is that they still look very natural on the skin, and generate such a lovely radiance.
Bronzer – this light, warm toned bronzer works well on my pale Winter skin, it gives my cheeks a little ‘sunshine pick-me-up’ kind of feeling, which is certainly welcomed. I think this will be a great bronzer for the Summer months too. The bronzer is deep enough to add colour to my skin without looking fake, muddy, ashy or orange. Its aimed at Fair to Medium skin tones and it adds a lovely silky, satin glow.
Blusher – I love love love this colour, definitely need a light hand (as you can always add more) but it gives such a pretty coral/pink tone. I had a Charlotte Tilbury blusher that was a similar shade that I dropped and it smashed (still recovering from that one!) so this is the perfect replacement and I actually prefer it, plus with the bronzer together its ideal for travelling and for the ease/quickness of application. The shade does have a golden shimmer but its subtle and not at all glittery (which I am never a fan of) – instead it gives a pretty, natural flush of colour to the cheeks that glows and shines rather than shimmers and sparkles. If you like the Beauty Classic Nars Orgasm Blusher then this will be right up your street.
The Mini Powder Brush…
Such a perfect size, I haven’t experienced any shedding of the bristles which are also so soft on the skin. It feels very well made and is just a beautiful brush to use with these products, it really does complete the perfect set. Sometimes I apply the products separately, the bronzer first just below the cheek bone, and then the blusher lightly on top of the cheekbones. And other times I swirl the brush between the two products to mix them together and just apply straight to the cheeks which gives a lovely sun-kissed tone and radiance.
Priced at £60.00 for the set it certainly isn’t particularly budget friendly but the products do scream quality in every sense…from the packaging, to the brush, to the actually bronzer and blusher themselves. The texture for both products is smooth, buttery and silky, with crushed pearls that produce high pigmentation and an instant flush of glow to your cheeks. The pan sizes are a decent 12.5g and 10g respectively so I can see this lasting quite some time as a lighter hand is favoured so you don’t need much product at all. I love love love this palette, its one I can see myself using right through the Spring and Summer months, its going to become a daily staple in my makeup routine. I actually prefer this over my Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in Palette Bronzer and Blushers which were my favourite up til now, which is huge as I adore that palette so much, but this one is just extra special.
