Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer Review

Last month I went on a bit of a Charlotte Tilbury shopping spree and picked up quite a few new bits, including the newly released Airbrush Bronzer. Funnily enough, they released a bronzer just as I was on the hunt for one so I picked it up straight away!

About the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer 

From the Charlotte Tilbury website:


Darlings, discover my NEW! Airbrush Bronzer in Tan, a HYALURONIC ACID-INFUSED, SMOOTHING, PORE-BLURRING EFFECT MATTE bronzer for the face and body! This shade is perfect for tanned skin tones to create the appearance of a glowing, sun-kissed, beautiful bronzed complexion!

Inspired by my 1 SOLD EVERY MINUTE worldwide PHENOMENON, Airbrush Flawless Finish powder*, my NEW! Airbrush Bronzer uses the same BEAUTIFYING AIRBRUSH DNA and fine-as-AIR FINELY-MILLED pigments to BLUR the appearance of PORES and SMOOTH over your skin to make you look and feel like the best, most beautiful version of yourself!

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer Packaging

Like with any Charlotte Tilbury product the packaging is super luxurious. The bronzer sits in a pretty, rose gold packaging with an art deco design with the Charlotte Tilbury logo etched in. For some reason, I was expecting it to be quite a small product as I find Charlotte Tilbury products, like the eyeshadow palettes and a couple of highlighters, usually are. But, I was really surprised to find that this bronzer is actually massive. I’d say it’s slightly bigger than the palm of my hand which I’m very happy about as it means it’ll last me a really long time.

There’s also a nice big mirror inside to touch up on the go. Plus, the pans are refillable too. I love that Charlotte Tilbury do refillable products, some of their lipsticks are also refillable and I think it’s such a good idea. Nothing goes to waste and I get to have my favourite products for slightly cheaper.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer Shades 

The Airbrush Bronzer is available in 4 shades:

  • Fair
  • Medium
  • Tan
  • Deep

It took me quite a while to decide which shade to go for. I knew Fair would be too light as the bronzer in the Filmstar Bronze & Glow didn’t show up much on me. I was really drawn to Tan as I do like a darker bronzer so I have the option to apply it lightly or build it up. But I felt like Medium would probably be better suited. In the end, I went with my gut and got the Tan shade and it’s perfect!

Obviously, when swatched it’s very dark compared to my skin tone. But once it’s applied, blended and paired with blusher it looks really beautifully natural. I only use a small amount of the product and build up if I need too.

Final Thoughts

I am very happy with the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer and have used it every day since I got it. It has a super matte finish which is ideal as I hate using bronzers that have a bit of shimmer in them. It applies really nicely and blends like a dream and doesn’t look cakey or overdone at all! Overall it’s a great bronzer and well worth the high price tag. I was a little worried spending £39 on a single bronzer, normally I’d get a palette at that price. But, as you’re getting 16g of high-quality product, it can definitely be justified!

This is definitely my current favourite, go-to bronzer. It gives you a really pretty, natural sun-kissed look which is perfect for summer and, in my experience, it lasts all day long. When the time eventually comes that I do run out I will most likely purchase the refill. I may also buy the Medium shade for the upcoming autumn and winter months.

I hope you all enjoyed this review of the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer! Let me know in the comments if you’ve recently purchased it or if you’re thinking about it. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

    I’m a big fan of matte bronzers too! I never got into the whole shimmery bronzer vibe for my face since I have oily skin. This is my dream bronzer but I can’t justify buying it right now, hope I can in the future!
