REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Charlotte Tilbury Bronze & Blush

Charlotte Tilbury Bronze & Blush Review & Swatches & Giveaway

Which brand has the most beautiful packaging, in your opinion? For me, it has to be Charlotte Tilbury! I adore the art deco style and, of course, the rose gold, but it's also the little details - the little star that graces the mirror or the eyeshadow quads and the interior cases of the blushes. Thankfully, Charlotte Tilbury products combine both style and substance, which makes me a big fan and every time there is a new release, I always want to get my hands on it! Just before Christmas, she released Filmstar Bronze and Blush, which I was very happy to find under the tree! I was also very kindly sent this palette so because I now have two, I decided that I would do a giveaway because I figured that any beauty addict would love to get their hands on this. Keep reading to the end for details on how to enter.

Charlotte Tilbury Bronze & Blush Review, Swatches & Giveaway

Housed in the same packaging as Filmstar Bronze and Glow, this new cheek duo can't help but please the eye. Inside the lid is a mirror and then in the case itself are two pans with the bronzer on one side and the blush on the other. Unlike the Bronze and Glow palette, Bronze and Blush comes with a mini blush brush, which is a nice addition, however it does mean the price is higher at £60 as opposed to £49.

The blush appears to be a very bright pink in the pan, however when swatched and applied, you can see that it actually has a hint of coral running through it and whilst it isn't shimmery, it does add some glow. The description states that it contains finely crushed pearls, which add some luminosity to the cheeks. It's the shade of blush that I always gravitate towards as pinky-corals suit my medium skin tone best.

I have two other blushes from Charlotte Tilbury and I adore the soft, finely milled texture because it makes them so easy to work with. The blush in this cheek duo has the same soft and smooth texture and it doesn't highlight any visible pores in the cheek area or texture. I find that it is best to use a light hand when applying it and then adding more to build it up, as required. In terms of wear time, the longest that I have worn it is 9 hours and it was still visible on my cheeks when I was removing my makeup.

Like the blush, the bronzer is very soft and smooth to touch and a dream to apply. It has warmth to it but it doesn't look too orange and neither is it ashy. It adds warmth to my face and some gentle definition but you couldn't achieve Kim K-W style contouring with this - gentle definition is much more flattering, in my opinion! The combination of the two products add radiance to my cheeks without any glitter or being too o.t.t. - the result is a healthy, youthful glow.

I am hoping that more shades will be released in the future because I know that there are Light-Medium and Medium-Dark options with Bronze and Glow so it makes sense that a Medium-Dark option will be added and, hopefully,  more blush options because pinky-coral isn't to everybody's taste. I would also love to see a cheek trio released with a bronzer/blush and highlight because it would be ideal for taking on holiday or for in your handbag, rather than bringing a couple of products.

Overall, this is a must have for any Charlotte Tilbury fan and if you have yet to explore the brand, this would be a great place to start! 

I would love to hear your thoughts on this cheek duo? Are you happy to pay a bit extra to have a brush? Do the shades appeal to you?
