4 Different Editors Try Charlotte Tilbury's Hollywood Flawless Filter

Lindsey Metrus

Charlotte Tilbury, queen of beauty, can do no wrong. Her lipsticks, shaped in a unique square bullet for precise application, hit the ball out of the park with every masterfully crated shade. Her multipurpose Instant Look in a Palette is often replicated (but never duplicated), and her ultra-rich, skin-softening, insanely hydrating Magic Cream is made straight from angel tears. Hell, she could probably even launch a grill next, and I'm sure it'd char the best damn burger you ever ate.

So cue the internal screams when we caught word of her latest launch, Hollywood Flawless Filter, a "primer-highlighter complexion-booster." This may sound like a whole lot of claims for one bottle, but it's actually a perfectly accurate description. With its consistency—similar to that of a tinted moisturiser—you can either apply it as a primer, mix it into your foundation, or tap it on as the last step in your routine like a highlighter. Plus, the doe-foot applicator makes it easy to spot-treat, so to speak, and add subtle sheen to your Cupid's bow, the bridge and tip of the nose, and the inner corners of the eye.

The problem with many liquid highlighters is they're too heavy, and before you know it, your skin's ready for a music festival rather than the office. But Flawless Filter provides a much more buildable glow than a sparkle, like you've been Instagram-filtered in real life. It helps you feign healthy skin, even if you had a crazy bender the night before. And, most importantly, it comes in seven shades, because highlighters are certainly not a one-shade-fits-all product. Excited to test out its glow-giving prowess on the different skin tones in our office, four of us gave it a try and discovered our preferred uses differed vastly from person to person.
