I am back with another Charlotte Tilbury’s star product for you. It’s the Filmstar Bronze and Glow Face Sculpt and Highlight Duo.
Filmstar Bronze and Glow you can slim, sculpt, shorten, trim and highlight your features. It’s amazing what clever shading and highlighting tricks can do to your facial framework – it’s an illusion that I use all the time, particularly for red carpet scrutiny, and my clients can’t get enough of it. Take what you were born with and maximize your assets with Filmstar Bronze and Glow.
- The bronzer is the perfect universal blend of pearl and pigment to contour features and mimic a sun-kissed complexion.
- The highlighter is built up from a golden base that flatters any skin tone, and uses Light Flex Technology to capture light and radiate it out for a luminous complexion.
- Colour-rich pigments are rolled into elastomer pearls that smooth and buff the skin for excellent blendability and perfect color uniformity.
My Experience with Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow Face Sculpt and Highlight:
When I got all the items in my Tilbury haul, this was the item I was least excited about. Firstly, because we as Indian women kind of believe that with our skin tone, we don’t need any more bronzing. Secondly, I haven’t been a big contour-ing person, but I have always admired the effect that it has when done right which honestly, I did not think I had the ability to do it right and thirdly, people on Youtube have been raving non-stop about this product and I wanted to know what all hoo-haa was about. But this product has become the star in my whole lot of purchase. I can’t tell you how amazing this product is and the pictures will not do justice and will not convey the effect as in person and using it will have on you.
Super luxurious, fancy, amazing packaging. The gold tone is eye catching. It has a big mirror inside which is very helpful and the lid closes securely. Inside there are two products side by side, the highlight and the bronzer which means this product could be your go-to product to take with you on travels. It does not have any compartment for a brush or any brush provided with it.
Texture, Shade and Pigmentation:
These powders are just the perfection, they are neither too powdery nor too creamy. The bronzer shade is neither too matte nor too shimmery. The undertone of the bronzer is neither too warm nor too cool. Everything about this product is in perfect balance. The bronzer powder has good pigmentation, but it needs to be built up. You cannot easily go overboard with this in one swipe which is a good thing as you will not end up with a stark brown line if you are trying to contour. You can take your time and really blend and buff these powders into your skin and build the depth of the bronze as much as you like.
This is the perfect shade for contouring for my light-medium skin tone. It looks so incredibly natural and with the first application I could understand what the hype was all about. Even though the powder looks shimmery in the pan, it does not appear so on the face. It appears to have a slight luminescent glow but no shimmer. The bronzing shade can also be used as a crease shade for the eyes.
The highlight is also very good. It does have very minute shimmer which is almost undetectable on the skin unless you look in very close. It gives the most natural-looking glow from within look. Can be used on the high points of cheeks, on the bridge of nose, cupids bow and brow bone.
Overall, a 5-star product and the biggest hit from the Tilbury line for me. This is “perfection” and I cannot recommend this enough.
