*Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter was a product that i was very intrigued by, to say the least.
It’s described as a customisable complexion booster, that has the versatility of a face primer and also the mega-watt glow of a highlighter, with added perfecting properties of your favourite digital filter.
A little confused?
I must admit i was, but once you break it down. It’s simply a hybrid base product.
It can be used in many ways and in a nutshell, it claims to help you achieve that high-glow celebrity skin filter.
But is it a primer, foundation or highlighter?
I would say you could use it as all three, dependant on you skin type.
Housed in a heavy high-end glass bottle. (It is CT of course). You unscrew the gold lid, and attached is a doe foot applicator.
There are 7 shades to choose from.
I opted for the shade 3 light/medium, as this is my shade in Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Foundation.
As the formula is quite sheer, i would advise you go with the shade you are in Charlotte Tilbury foundations.
If you are yet to try a CT foundation, then i would recommend a trip to a store and have a look and swatch of the shades.
The product feels light like a serum, and spreads smoothly across the skin.
When blended into the skin it appears as a light tinted base, and covers small and light imperfections.
It improves the appearance of my skins texture, and my complexion appears brighter and more luminous.
On the whole i use it as a primer as i like a medium coverage base, but I wanted to break down this review, as this product is a hybrid style product and it works in so many ways.
The product includes smoothing airbrush polymers that roll over your complexion to create a porless-looking and creamy finish. It is infused with a glossy oil that is a light moisturising oil, and it helps to reflect and add light to your face.
There are also finally milled powders, these help create a soft focus making lines and pores appear smoother.
I have used this product over the past week in replace of my foundation. I haven’t been too well, and my skin at the moment appears dull, pale and dry.
When i feel poorly, like most people, slapping on make-up is the last thing you want to do.
I simply swipe a couple of times over my cheeks, chin, nose and forehead, and blend with a Real Techniques Buffing Brush.
I have been touching up any blemishes around my chin with a concealer, and my base has been good to go.
It’s such an easy product to use, and it has been my saving grace through this sickness period as Flawless Filter offers an extremely light coverage, evens skin tone and leaves the complexion looking dewy, even and radiant.
If i am after a more heavy coverage, be it for a night-out or a long day at the office. I use this as a primer.
I have fine lines across my forehead, redness and acne scarring. This product helps to blur fine lines, and help my skin appear healthy and glowy. I then use a light coverage foundation over, to create a medium/heavy coverage.
To add an extra oomph to my highlight i add a little to my ring finger and lightly dab over the top of my cheeks, down my nose, across my brow bone, chin and the middle of my upper lip.
It adds a beautiful natural glow to these areas. You could leave it at that or if you are feeling extra snazzy, add a little powder highlight over.
However you choose to use this product, you will see a visible improvement to the skins appearance.
The product creates the perfect canvas to help enhance and improve the appearance of your complexion.
The skin appears healthy, it lifts and illuminates it in a natural and flawless way.
So if you want to rock your inner JLO, and GLOW.
(Who doesn’t right?)
Then the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter has got you covered.
