It’s been quite the year for Charlotte Tilbury, what with selling a massive share of her business and lots of exciting new launches. The Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder launched a few years ago, and it’s been raved about by so many bloggers I love, so I decided it was time I tried it for myself, and chose it as part of my ultimate makeup bag line-up.
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder
I always find powders to be really risky when purchasing online without swatching prior to purchase. When it comes to foundations and concealers, you can use lightening or darkening drops to make them work, but with a face powder, if it doesn’t match your skintone, there’s not a lot you can do about it.
The Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder is available in just three shades which is ridiculous. Three shades to suit all skintones? The brand needs to do better, and if they can create four shades for their new Airbrush Bronzer, they can certainly do better with their powder in the same range.
The Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder is £35 and contains 8 grams of product within a stunning, domed rose gold compact. It really is beautifully presented, and the new Airbrush Bronzer features a similar design, except with a starburst design on the lid.

I chose the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder in the shade Fair 1 which is the lightest shade they have to offer, and is described as being best suited for those with very fair to fair skin, perfect for fair redheads and blondes.
I’m really happy with how fair this powder is, which hopefully you can see in the swatches above. I had to be heavy-handed in these swatches, as you can’t really ‘swatch’ a pressed powder. You’d never apply powder this heavily on the face, but it’s decently fair but it does lean pretty warm in tone, and can look a little too yellow on my cooler skintone.
The Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder really reminds me of the Soap & Glory One Heck Of a Blot Powder. They both have the same silky smooth consistency, and it looks visually similar on the skin too. It makes my skin look smooth, doesn’t cling to peach fuzz but works well at setting my makeup in place.
It just makes my skin look like skin and never powdery or cakey, but also does a great job at minimising shine too. There’s only one downside of the powder, and that’s how easily you get through the product. Due to how soft and silky the powder is within the pan, it wears away quickly with regular use, but I really love this powder and now need to try the Airbrush Bronzer as it sounds so lovely.
