Charlotte Tilbury's Filmstar Bronze & Glow "Light to Medium" is a pressed powder bronzer and highlighter duo, encased in a lovely rose-gold compact with mirror. You'll be glad to know—just as we were pleased to discover—the product is more than a pretty package, as it performs just as well as it looks!
The powder bronzer's neutral medium-brown color is a godsend for those who struggle to find a natural-looking shade for their skin tone. It's not the least bit muddy or orange looking, and it has just a hint of finely-milled shimmer to "mimic a sun-kissed complexion." (We know a real tan doesn't have shimmer, but here, it serves to add a subtle glow to skin and is not in the least bit glittery.) While this shade of bronzer is particular suited for those with a light to medium skin tone, those with a deeper skin tone can also use it, as the sheer yet pigmented color is buildable.
The powder highlighting side of the duo is equally beautiful as it illuminates skin with a golden sheen of ultra-fine shimmer. Whether used alongside the bronzer or on its own, the glowing finish of this highlighter reflects light and beautifully accentuates cheekbones (or anywhere else on the face that you want to use it).
Filmstar Bronze & Glow is fragrance-free, and both the bronzer and highlighter have a soft pressed powder texture that is easily picked up on a brush. They apply and blend well, and when used together, they really do give skin that "beachy glow."
You certainly don't have to pay this much to get a good bronzer/highlighter set, but there's no denying that Filmstar Bronze & Glow is standout option to give skin a soft candlelit glow and subtle dimension!
Note: Although Charlotte Tilbury's Filmstar Bronze & Glow comes in a deeper shade (the recently released Medium to Dark), the stores we visited only carried the Light to Medium duo. When we can get our hands on Medium to Dark, we'll be sure to update our review. (However, if you've tried it, please share your comments!)
