Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow

CT Filmstar bronze & glow packaging

When you put the words “film star” and “glow” together in a beauty product you know it’s going to create a makeup frenzy.  The Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow is a much-loved product in the beauty world and I can see why – with its dazzling rose gold packaging which consists of the perfect bronzer/contour and highlighter duo, what more could you want?

On my complexion (Nars Punjab, Mac NC30), this is a not too brown not too orange bronzer which helps define my cheekbones in a natural way unlike say Nars Laguna, which although I love, is a lot more intense.  You can, however, build this up to create a deeper contour if you want and blending wise this is on point as the powder is very finely milled and silk to the touch.

The real winner for me though is the highlighter.  It’s the most beautiful, suits all golden champagne highlighter which gives a lit from within glow to the skin.  I just place a little on the tops of my cheekbones and when I want to really go all out, in the hollows of my collar-bone and it makes me feel like I’m channeling my inner superstar!  Honestly, I just love it.

So what do you use to make you feel like a superstar?

  • Just discovered your blog via a comment you left on mine and love it 🙂 I read so many raves about this CT product. Everyone seems to love it, and just like you, especially its highlighter. I love to contour with Bobbi Brown Bronzer in golden light (I am quite fair) and highlight with MAC Soft and Gentle. Xx

  • I really does look gorgeous! It would definitely be a luxury splurge for me though as I don’t tend to bronze and highlight every day xx

  • I love this palette and just how luxurious it is. However I do prefer the highlighting shade also since the contour shade is more suited as a bronzer because it’s quite warm x

  • This is such a beautiful product, I would love to own it one day!


  • Heard so much about this.

    Need this! Great review and blog. x

  • I’ve always wanted to try something from Charlotte Tilbury and this looks lovely, although the bronzer side is perhaps a little too dark for me as for reference my shade in NARS is Siberia. I love the look of the highlighter though, I’m really digging those for summer.

    • Yeah it’s a shame CT doesn’t do these separately. I use highlighters all year round – I love them that much!

    This is gorgeous. Highlighting has been my go-to look for summer and I’m looking for a natural bronzer to complete the look. I am so tempted to buy this!

  • This duo has been in my wishlist since Christmas. Although I feel a bit guilty to buy it, as I already have enough bronzers and highlighters, I’m sure I’ll give in and purchase it at some point. The highlighter in this duo is beautiful. x
