It's amazing what clever shading and highlighting tricks can do to your facial framework - it's an illusion that I use all the time, particularly for red carpet scrutiny, and my clients can't get enough of it.
This is ridiculously overpriced for what it is. You have to do layer after layer of bronzer to build up any pigment, but this just makes it muddy. The highlighter is awful, its way too subtle and lasts all of half an hour before you have to reapply, after half an hour it separates and looks like you’ve rubbed some loose glitter on your face. For an eye watering £49 you get 2 pans that have barely any pigment. You are purely paying for the nice packaging and for the brand name with this product. Would not recommend as you can get a full contour kit from good quality, consistent brands such as ABH for £42.00. Complete waste of money!

Love this bronzer so much... the highlighter is subtil and the bronzer is just what it needs to be for a natural bronze touch. The quality is there. I hope it lasts forever because the price feels like a stab. Looks beautiful and natural but darlings... it is overpriced for a bronzer+highlighter. The way it sits on the skin is perfect.

Personally I am scared of using bronzer (bad experience lol) I love this palette though as it is hard to go wrong. Charlotte Tilbury has worked her magic with this! Only marked 3 stars as I think for £49 it is expensive!

✨I was extremely disappointed with this product - the pigmentation is practically non existent, which I was extremely surprised about as the price tag is an eye watering £49! I tried to build up the colour by applying at least 5 coats, and I saw no illumination or real depth of colour. I have only given the product 2 stars for the packaging, which is really beautiful, but certainly not worth the money! This product may suit very light skin tones, but avoid if you are any darker than this. The blendibility is good, but no point if you cannot see the product of your face!

Ok so CT products are expensive and this one is no exeption. But everything about this duo of highlight and bronzer screams film..film...Filmstar! From the design and weight of the packaging, to the finely milled soft like butter powders to the way they apply and melt into the skin..I love it all:)
The colours are sophisticated and subtle but definately visibe. There is no strong scent about the product and my skin( sensitive and dry) has never had a bad reaction to any CT products, the duo included . If you're looking to tryout a piece from this collection, this duo would be perfect!

I love this product. I have it in the light shade which is perfect for my skin tone. The bronze powder is perfect to contour with. It's not too warm or too ashy and has the slightest, almost undetectable amount of shimmer which gives it a really healthy look. The highlight is a beautiful champagne colour which gives a beautiful natural glow or can be built up to be more intense. Both powders are very finely milled so almost feel like butter on your skin. Really pigmented too so a little goes a long way. Oh, and the packaging is gorgeous!

I'll start by saying that I'm not a Charlotte Tilbury fan, I purchased the 2015 advent Calendar and was not impressed by any of its contents. Around the same time I also purchased Filmstar Bronze and Glow, which I love. The bronzer is great as it doesn't have too much shimmer in it, very subtle, but enough to not leave your face looking muddy. It blends well, and the shade suits me all year round. The highlighter is perfect for the summer when you have a tan but I found it a bit too goldy for the winter months. Pricey at £49, but you are getting two full size products in the set.

This is amazing! Omg! The contour shade is so natural and the highlight it just beautiful! This is one of my favourite contour palettes ever! It last ages too! A little definitely goes a lond way! If you are looking for a much cheaper dupe of this i found that the W7 Bronze and Glow contour and highlight kit does the trick although the bronzer is alot more oranger.
