In my life as a makeup lover and beauty blogger, I find myself going through a variety of phases. Sometimes I’m focused on finding the perfect cream blush, other times I’m looking for the best foundation for my oily skin.Lately I’ve been obsessed with finding the perfect compact powder and recently picked up Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder based on raves from fellow beauty lovers on Instagram.
I suppose my current compact obsession goes back to my earliest childhood memories of makeup. It was all about watching the women in my life pick up their powders and dust their noses throughout the day. I have to admit I seldom do the same thing now and would rather throw my makeup on and not have to worry about anything throughout the day. And this powder from Charlotte Tilbury happens to be good for that very thing!
I don’t own a lot of Charlotte Tilbury products, but I’m so intrigued by this eponymous line created by makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury. Her lipsticks are fantastic, by the way, and there are several eyeshadow palettes on my wish list. The Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder is designed to do the opposite of traditional face powders. Instead of dulling your skin, this is finely milled with soft focus nano-particles to blur lines and imperfections without looking or feeling cakey at all. It’s formulated with rose wax and almond oil to add hydration to your skin throughout the day.
This powder comes in three colors – Light, Medium, and Dark that are designed to encompass a wide variety of skin tones. Medium is the best shade for my medium-olive skin tone.
In comparison to the Becca Multi-Tasking Perfecting Powder compact I reviewed recently, I have to say I prefer the finish and results of this powder. It is definitely very natural looking and does not feel heavy at all. When I apply it to set my makeup, I don’t have to worry much about touching up. I’ll get a little oily breakthrough on my nose, but all in all, it’s a keeper. I like that it keeps my makeup in place and looking good throughout the day. This fits in well with my mom-life makeup needs!
My one knock with this powder is the packaging. It’s a bit… cheap feeling, especially considering the price of $45. It’s a pretty compact, but very lightweight and plastic and I was expecting something a bit more substantial. It’s not the biggest deal in the world, but still I was hoping for more of a keepsake kind of compact.
My Final Thoughts: If you’re looking for a powder to set your makeup and keep it looking good all day, the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder is worth checking out. It gets my busy mommy seal of approval!
