If you’re a fan of high end makeup, then Charlotte Tilbury may already be on your radar. Recently Charlotte Tilbury has released some quite exciting beauty products which I was recently sent to review. The Filmstar Bronze and Blush Glow palette and the new lipstick Opium Noir.
The Filmstar Bronze and Blush Glow
This face palette is intended to give a soft contour and subtle pink glow on the cheeks. It contains a bronzer shade which incorporates pearls and pigments that help you contour your face whilst mimicking a sun-kissed skin finish. The blusher also contains pearls in the shade pink for a more flushed look. Alongside the complexion shades, the face palette also contains the Mini Artistry Blush Brush which is a small fluffy brush which allows for an easier application.
The overall concept of the Filmstar Bronze and Brush Glow palette is to create a natural glow. It’s a palette for those who prefer to have a more subtle look, and would be great for everyday use. One thing to note is that this is for people with light to medium skin tones. As I have a deeper skin tone, the bronze just did not work for me at all. However, as it has a subtle glow, I found I could use it as a natural highlighter. The pink tone would work very well on light to medium skin tones, but also worked on my deeper skin tone.
I won’t be too critical of this palette as it is marketed for light to medium skin tones. However, I would have loved to see a palette released alongside this one that worked for deeper skin tones. I think a deep plum or deep coral blusher and a deeper / redder bronzer would work great for deeper skin tones. Hopefully the deeper palette will be released soon!
Matte Revolution Opium Noir Lipstick
The Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks are among one of my favourite lipstick formulas. I find them to be quite long-lasting and can also be quite moisturising on the lips (even the matte lipsticks). When I received the new Opium Noir lipstick I was very excited to be adding it to my collection.
Opium Noir is described as a ‘…divine deep berry crimson shade…‘ which was influenced by the Film Noir era. You can definitely get the sense that Charlotte Tilbury had a sexy screen siren in mind when curating this shade! The lipstick also contains rich oils and anti-oxidants to aid in the appearance and overall health of your lips. It’s definitely quite a moisturising lipstick, which gives a soft matte finish. It’s also a long lasting colour, which is quite pigmented with one swipe (although it does need to be layered for full opacity).
The Opium Noir lipstick works for any skin tone, and is a great alternative to a traditional bright red lipstick. It’s a lipstick shade I’ll definitely be wearing a lot more this winter and spring.
The Filmstar Bronze and Blush Glow palette retails for £60 and can be found here. The Opium Noir Lipstick retails for £24 and can be found here. You can see how each of these products apply on different skin tones on the Charlotte Tilbury website.
