REVIEW | CHARLOTTE TILBURY HOLLYWOOD FLAWLESS FILTER IN TAN



I was kindly sent the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter (£30) in Tan as well as the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Bond Girl. As you might already know, I love it hence its inclusion in my April Favourites (read here). As promised, this is the full review. I have a love and hate relationship with Charlotte Tilbury products in general, the very little I have tried hasn't worked for me, for instance the Magic Foundation and the Dolce Vita Eyeshadow Quad, but that doesn't mean to say that their products might not be your favourites or that there other products wouldn't work for me. The Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder has been on my to-buy list forever and I am definitely going to purchase it before my sister's wedding. 

What It Is: The Hollywood Flawless Filter is a "hybrid complexion booster" directed to be used beneath foundation, either all over or just on the high points of your face. It is marketed as essentially being a filter in a bottle. It is available in 7 different shades, but importantly it is not a foundation.

What It Does: The Flawless Filter offers the blurring properties of a pore-filling primer and the glow of a great highlighter. The different shades are tinted and therefore do offer a slight bit of coverage. To me it is like a dewy BB cream. 



What I Liked: I really like the colour I chose, which is Tan, it is slightly warmer than my actual skin tone which makes it an ideal summer complexion product. The wand is also brilliant, not the most sanitary, but it makes applying with precision easier if you are just targeting the high points. The packaging is luxurious and looks so pretty sitting on my shelf with the rest of my makeup. I use it as a base and just set it with either a powder foundation or my MAC MSF in Medium Deep. I love the finish and effect it gives to my skin, it is uber natural and so pretty and skin-like as well as being really lightweight on the skin, perfect for summer. For someone who avoids glow I am actually quite impressed with this. Suitable for all skin types, even my oily skin.

What I Didn't: There's not anything I don't like per se, it is very beautiful both in the bottle and on the skin. I wish they had a few more shades but as it is quite sheer it's not a problem. The price is moderately high but expected for Charlotte Tilbury. It is definitely not a necessity and I don't think it is a product I would have purchased of my own volition. 


Overall verdict would be 4/5. It's a great product and does exactly what it says, but again not a must-have. Thank you so much for reading, I really want to try a lot of new products so please comment below any reviews you are interested in and I will add them to my list. Hop you had an amazing bank holiday weekend I spent a lot of time with my family in the countryside and it was stunning. It is taking me a while to get back into work mode but hopefully I will get there. My sister's wedding is imminent so I will be playing with some colourful makeup soon and hopefully I will be confident to either post tutorials or at least some photos and blog posts. Take care. 

What is your favourite Charlotte Tilbury product, if you have one?

Love 
Kiran

  7. Much too dewy for my taste, but I understand that for someone that loves a more dewy finish it is a great product.

  9. I first heard about this product on a drama channel who thought it was a foundation and there for WENT OFF about the lack of shades within the range. However, upon discovering that it is indeed a primer like product, that makes it a lot better. PHEW! x It does look and sound so good though - I need pore filling primers and I also love a bit of glow so this would be perfect. However, I don't have the cash to buy CT products so, unfortunately, I must give this one a miss! x
