Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow: review


Hey gorgeous!

Today I want to give you my opinion on this little gem, the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow contour palette!

Opinions are mixed on this one; everyone says it's a gorgeous product, but a lot of big YouTubers seem to only use the contour shade or only the highlight shade. I personally really like both.

It looked quite pale when I first swatched it in store, but I figured when it works for so many people, it will definitely work for my paler skin tone. The highlight looks quite intense when swatched so you only need a little bit.

Pigmentation-wise these are very good. The contour is pigmented but not overly-pigmented so it's easy to dose the amount of product you pick up. I apply this one with my fairly new Sephora Pro Contour brush, which fits into the hollow of my cheek perfectly. I also take it down the sides of my nose a little bit. The powder is really easy to blend so I don't get harsh lines.

The highlighter is a bit more pigmented so I use a light hand with my Real Techniques Setting Brush to tap it into the product and sweep it on top of my cheekbones. The colour is great for my skin tone, a light champagne glowy shade, not too glittery and finely milled so it spreads and blends evenly.

I don't have the feeling it stays on all day like some of my other powders do, but again I'm really careful with contouring because I'm scared to over-do it. I don't like strong contouring but a bit of a contour suits me fine. The consistency of the powders feel lovely though.

The packaging is simple, convenient and very pretty. The mirror inside is huge and I love the little star in the corner - it's all about the details! The signature star on the inside of the product. I also love that this one feels quite sturdy but doesn't take up more space than needed at the same time. 10/10 for packaging!

Is this palette worth your pennies? Well, it was definitely a big investment for me but I'm glad I can hold it in my hands. I think it's definitely a great product and well worth it's money, I haven't seen anything like it that's similar on the high street (Nope, the Maybelline Master Sculpt is really not comparable to this one! At all!) but maybe you can find a good bronze/contour shade and combine it with a cheaper highlight as well. Although I don't think you will find something of this great quality for less money.

Hope you liked this review and if there's anything I forgot to cover you really want to know, feel free to ask in the comments. Let me know what you think about it if you own think product!

Lots of love,
