I don’t know what it is about Charlotte Tilbury’s foundation’s, but they just don’t agree with my skin type. My skin is either too dry when I apply them, or the base get’s really oily through-out the day, which I just don’t like.
They are good don’t get me wrong, but they’re not perfect, like my one true love for Estee Lauder’s Double Wear foundation. In my eyes, nothing has ever beaten that formula.
I’ve been testing this foundation on and off for around three months and here are my thoughts.
The Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush flawless foundation comes in 44 shades which covers a variety of undertones. In fact, this is a good shade range so there should be a good match for everyone. The shades are divided into cool, neutral and warm undertones.
The packaging is absolutely stunning as is all her other packaging on various items. It has that art deco feel which I adore.
The foundation comes in a lovely luxurious oval-shaped glass bottle with a gold top. It also has a pump applicator and it contains 30ml of product.
The formula is a medium coverage – with just one pump. A little goes a long way. But can be build-able if you like a heavier coverage.
It gives the skin a semi-matte finish. However, you do need to powder, as without one, you tend to get shiny through-out the day. I did notice I have a few dry-patches when I wear this too, so next time I give this a wear, I’ll use a exfoliater to scrub away dry skin.
It does pretty much last for around 8-10 hours!
It claims to be “transfer-proof”, which is true. It needs a really heavy cleanser to be removed at the end of the day. At the moment I’m using Oskia’s cleanser and that seems to melt down the make-up, but I need to do it twice.
I’m scoring this foundation a 3.5/5! It’s not a bad foundation by any means, I just don’t think it works very well for dry-combination skin. It would work well with someone who has normal-oily skin. The packaging won me over as per usual, but sadly I won’t be repurchasing, but glad I gave this foundation a go.
