This review will be on the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder in the shade “Medium.”
This is my powder revolution: a super luxe micro-fine powder with soft-focus nano particles that blur away lines and imperfections, for effortlessly flawless skin in a silk-cashmere touch-like you’ve never experienced before. When in front of the lens and under the spotlight, a model’s skin requires constant re-touching to prevent skin shining in the wrong areas. Traditional powders can look heavy, and dull the skin, so I created Air Brush Flawless Finish. This breathable, micro-fine powder technology gives you an immaculate complexion that acts like the most luxe, micro-fine cashmere veil on top of your skin for a bright, illuminating finish. No caking, dusting or sitting in lines.
- Soft Focus Nano-Particles blur away lines and imperfections, and sit like a soft micro-fine cashmere veil on top of your skin.
- Rose wax and almond oil hydrate the skin throughout the day and smoothe flawlessly onto the skin.
- Nourishing actives work to soothe and restore skin, while light-reflecting ingredients diffuse light as it hits your face for a luminous complexion and even finish all day.
My Experience with Charlotte Tilbury Air Brush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder:
As you must’ve judged from a few of my previous reviews, I have been on a streak with these Charlotte Tilbury products – a hit after hit! Hence I feel more and more compelled to try more of her products.
Packaging: This powder comes in a beautiful rose gold compact with a good-sized mirror. The compact is very lightweight but the outer case does attract a lot of fingerprints and scratches. I do not like the fact that there is no applicator nor a compartment for an applicator provided. If I ever were to take this powder with me to touch up my makeup during the day, I have to carry a brush too. How am I to discreetly powder my nose in public if I have to whip out my powder brush every time. Even a sponge applicator is greatly appreciated in times of beauty crisis.
Texture: This powder is super smooth and silky and very finely milled. It does not kick up powder when I dip my powder brush in it and spreads so smoothly on the face. It instantly mattifies and sets my makeup, but it does give a straight out matte and flat-looking finish. The finish is slightly glowy from within hence it makes your skin look healthier and truly air brushed. It does not contain any shimmer as far as I can detect.
I do have dry skin hence I mostly can get away without setting my makeup with powder as they can sometimes cling to my dry patches and accentuate them, but this is not the case with this powder. It never accentuates my dry patches or pores. I do have some oily areas on my face which are around the eyes and chin and it does mattify them quite well when I do feel the need the touch up after 5- 6 hours. Hence I do feel this might not be the best powder for oily skin as it does not have superb oil-controlling properties.
This powder never feels heavy or cakey on my skin and it lets my skin breathe. This powder comes only in 3 shades – Fair, Medium and Dark, hence not a wide range of colors to choose from, but I did find the shade “Medium” to be a perfect match for my MAC NW 23 skin tone. It does go on sheer and does not give much coverage.
Overall, another good product from the Charlotte Tilbury. I do very much enjoy this product and I will recommend it.
