The Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer launched back in May 2020, and it was a product I was tempted to try, but when Charlotte Tilbury was running one of their site sales, I decided to finally pick it up, as I’ve loved every Charlotte Tilbury face product I’ve tried.
I’ve only ever been a little underwhelmed by one of their products, and that was the Bella Sofia Palette (formerly known as the Dolce Vita palette. Keep on reading to find out all about their bronzer.
“Darlings, discover my AWARD-WINNING Airbrush Bronzer in Fair, a HYALURONIC ACID-INFUSED, SMOOTHING, PORE-BLURRING EFFECT MATTE bronzer for the face and body! This shade is perfect for fair skin tones and is the secret to a precise contour or all-over soft, sun-kissed finish for everyone, everywhere! It’s MATTE BRONZING made EASY!
The magic matte formula uses the same AIRBRUSH DNA as my FAMOUS AIRBRUSH MAKEUP ICONS, including the fine-as-AIR, smooth-as-SILK, FINELY-MILLED pigments found in my 1 SOLD EVERY MINUTE worldwide PHENOMENON, Airbrush Flawless Finish powder**, that BLUR the appearance of PORES and SMOOTH over your skin to make you look and feel like the best, most beautiful version of you!“
The Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer is £39 / $55, and I know that’s expensive for a powder bronzer, however this bronzer is huge. You get a massive 16g of product for your money, and most bronzers tend to offer 6g to 8g – just like Benefit Hoola, so you’re getting double the product with the Charlotte Tilbury bronzer.
The bronzer comes in a gorgeous rose gold rounded metallic compact, just like their Airbrush Powder, featuring the same rose gold starburst design on the lid.
It feels weighty and luxe, and it’s special because it’s a refillable design. On the underside of the bronzer, there’s a little hole which you can use with a pin, to push through and depot the bronzer, and replace it with a refillable pan, which Charlotte Tilbury also sells.
The Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer is available in four different shades; Fair, Medium, Tan and Deep, and I chose the lightest shade; Fair, which is an amazingly pale bronzer shade for super fair skin like mine.
I’ve seen a number of people complaining about how fair the Fair shade is, but there are a lot of people with super fair skintones, so it’s nice that we have options like the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer or Hoola Lite Bronzer.
It’s such a beautiful shade of bronzer, without being too warm toned, and just like the pressed powder, the bronzer is easy to apply, and I totally understand why it’s won an award. Not only is the packaging exquisite, but the formula is too.
It genuinely does have a flawless effect on the skin, and offers a natural buildable finish, which never looks OTT or patchy, even on my dry skin, which is rare.
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer is also long lasting, with at least six hours before showing signs of it beginning to fade, and I so hope the brand launches some pressed contour powders in this very same formula, as I think they’d be extremely popular.
