I don't feel even a little bit guilty for treating myself to the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow palette (£49), because it has been on my wishlist for months now and I think that it is actually an achievement that I resisted it for so long and only bought it when I had run out of my last bronzer.  So really I guess that makes it a well deserved treat.  

Obviously this beautiful little palette has been raved about on so many blogs, and you can't really escape it right now; however I think it is with good reason - it looked so good in the photos I'd seen, and now I've tried it myself I totally get why it is so popular.  

I bought the light version, and when it arrived the first thing I admired was just how good it looks.  Gold packaging is an instant win in my books, and having a mirror in a palette i also something I love, as it makes them extra handy useful for keeping in your handbag.  
The bronzer is a soft brown shade; I have been using it to carve out some cheekbones and it really does work - it's perfect for my skin tone and looks natural too thanks to there being no orange tones in it.  Since I wasn't bless with visible cheekbones, I trace the shape with my brush by slightly sucking in my cheeks which makes it easy to see where you should contour.  I also take it up to my temples, blend it around my jawline and also down the sides of my nose to make it look slimmer.  
The highlight shade looks really subtle in the palette, and compared to some other highlighters that I've used it doesn't look very shimmery at all, so I was a bit dubious about how well it would show up.  However, it is actually a gorgeous soft shimmer that both looks natural and makes my skin look 100% more glowy and radiant, in a way that I've never found another product to do.  

Quick warning: below is a selfie taken from my phone which best shows up how it looks.  Apologies in advance for the complete un-bloggerishness of the picture, but since rain has made the light awful for photo taking today then it will have to do!  

I hope that gives a good idea of how it looks on, my skin is certainly not that glowing without help so Bronze and Glow has immediately been put into my daily make up bag, and I can't see anything replacing it anytime soon either. 

Have you tried Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow?  What do you think of it? xx



  1. I think this is one of those products I might have to admire from afar for a while, I just can't justify the money on it right now! It's so beautiful though and I've hear nothing but good things about it. x
