Review for: 1 Cool - for very fair skin with cool undertones
It has two incredible ingredients magic mosscelltec +216% skin hydration and magic replexium. This makes wrinkles appear reduced by 22%. There is also a C.T. Defence which is designed to limit skin exposure to everyday pollutants. I’m always about having the flawless look. This comes in a glass bottle. This does include a good amount of fragrance. I prepared my face with moisturizer and sunscreen before I placed the foundation on my skin. Since the added ingredients on the bottle I did not wear a primer. I didn’t feel it was necessary. ( I was wrong ) by trial and error I found the blending sponge was the best way to put this foundation on. The sponge definitely sheers it out and takes it from looking cakey. This foundation does have a lot of oxidation. When I first put it on it looks or has a yellow tint to it on my skin anyhow. It does settle into my wrinkles pretty quickly. If you however have the Charlotte Tilbury powder it seems to set this makeup. This makeup does have flashback in pictures my face looks much whiter in photos. It also transfers onto my phone. This wears about 5/6 hours max. I actually think that my face looked drier and patchy by hour 5. I really didn’t love it. I’ve worn it six days and I’ll continue to work with other components to wear underneath and will update this again after a few weeks. I have been wearing primer and it helps somewhat. I feel like it sucks the moisture out of my face. I’m going to try the heaviest moisturizer I have and see if it can make a difference... stay tuned.

Review for: 4 Neutral - for fair skin with neutral undertones
Soft natural hydrating matte finish! I got 4 Neutral in the Airbrush Flawless Foundation. The shade’s description was a good match. When color matching in person, the true color comes out a couple of min after application. The packaging is a weighty frosted glass with a rose gold cap resembling her gold lipstick packaging. It does come with a pump. Upon application with a beauty sponge, it felt really creamy and moisturizing on my skin. It did not feel heavy or itchy. I noticed a very faint sweet fragrance very similar to a skincare cream. The smell doesn’t linger though and disappeared right away. 2 pumps pretty much covered my whole face and it was medium coverage. It didn’t sit in my lines or accentuate my pores, instead blurred imperfections giving my skin an airbrushed effect. I was able to build coverage where I needed to by applying another layer without it looking cakey. The finish is a natural soft matte finish with medium buildable coverage. It’s not completely undetectable but it doesn’t look heavy either. My skin looked healthy and felt hydrated and plump throughout the day and actually looked better the longer I was wearing it. It’s a very comfortable matte foundation. I very lightly set it with the Airbrush Setting Powder the first day of wear test and no setting powder the second day. I actually liked how it wore with no setting powder better because the powder took away from the skin’s radiance. I took a flash photo and there was no flashback and my skin looked airbrushed on camera. I have combo skin with an oily t-zone and dry everywhere else, so I did have to blot halfway through the day, but it didn’t break the foundation apart. It didn’t oxidize throughout the day either; it remained the same shade. I wore the foundation for about 10 hours and found it to be long wearing without any primer, just moisturizer underneath the first day. The second day, I wore it with a mattifying primer and I liked the finish better because it helped control my oils and extended the wear of the makeup. Overall, I think this foundation is beautiful and would recommend it. I received this foundation complimentary for testing purposes.

Review for: 2 Neutral - for fair skin with neutral undertones
Writing this review is hard to do because I wanted to love this foundation. I love so much from the Charlotte line! But this foundation did not live up to what it promises. When selecting shade, be aware that the neutrals tend to lean a bit on the yellow side. So if you are a yellow sensitive neutral- consider the cool. If the cool is too rosy this foundation just isn’t for you. Application is nice and smooth, a little goes a long way and there is a pleasant soft clean scent. Dries into a satin finish, it does oxidize a bit so expect it to be a bit pale when you first schmear it on. My shade was a 2Neutral. Within hours, this foundation was separating and settling into my pores and began looking like an orange peel: This has never happened to me with any foundation ever- so I was surprised because the box promises pore smoothing and 16 hour wear. Neither of which are true. I cannot day that my skin felt more hydrated or that it reduced appearance of wrinkles. I guess my pores were smoothed at very first, but not worth what they looked like later. I really gave this a fair chance, trying with different combinations of primer, setting powder, touch up with another brands powder foundation- it just didn’t live up to the hype. Theres much better out there- skip this one sis. I received this product complementary for testing purposes.

Review for: 6 Warm - for medium skin with warm undertones
OMG where has this been my whole life??? I’ve been such a Natasha Denona junkie for a few years with her Foundation X and X + (amazing foundation by the way), but Charlotte just stepped up the airbrushed matte game that I live for!! Stays on literally all day and night. I’m so excited for this and am now the biggest fan of this product ever!! Never really cared about Charlotte until this. Well played, Charlotte..... well played!

Review for: 5 Neutral - for medium skin with neutral undertones
Charlotte Tilbury's Airbrush Flawless Finish Foundation really lives up to its name and is genuinely a flawless finish.  When I tried the foundation in shade 5 Neutral, it was a perfect match to my skin tone.  The foundation provides great coverage, blends easily and allowed me to build on the color.  There is a matte finish which is my perferred as it looks natural anddoesn't make my face appear oily.  I would personally recommend using a beauty blender to apply the foundation as that's my go to.  However, if you prefer using brushes, that would also work too.  I was very pleased with the foundation as it stayed on throughout the entire day without any creasing or feeling cakey and has not made me break out.   I absolutely love Charlotte Tilbury and their newest product line.  I would recommend their foundation to my friends and family.  I will definately purchase and  continue using Charlotte Tilbury foundation after I finish this trial.  Please note that I have recieved this complimentary product for testing purposes.  My personal opinion is a reflection of my honest experience.   #charlottetilbury #flawlessisafeeling #contest #complimentary @ctilburymakeup @Influenster #makeup #flawless #perfect #foundation #beauty

Review for: 4 Warm - for fair skin with warm undertones
I sampled this foundation from Sephora, shade 4W. I still don’t think I have the best color for me only because I haven’t played with the other shades. It’s very full coverage so getting the right shade is important. On its own it’s more coverage than I prefer but if I were to purchase it I’d most likely mix it with moisturizer and/or the Hollywood flawless filter for a more sheen effect. For special occasions and photographs this would be a great choice. It covers perfectly without feeling heavy and lasts all day! The two pictures are taken in different lighting but are from the same day.

I wanted to give this foundation a try because of all the hype around it!! Unfortunately, I was realllyyy disappointed and I'm soo sad about it!! I was super excited ☹️ First pic, when I first put it on... I gave it 2 stars because when you apply it, it's very sleek and blends super easily! I really enjoyed applying it. Second pic, about 7 hours later... I'm super OILY. I used my normal moisturizer and primers and I was just SHINY all over (the pic doesn't even show how shiny I was). Overall, would NOT recommend for oily skin. Later on that evening, after I blotted once, I noticed the foundation started coming off and having a dot like appearance on my skin.... So it's definitely not THAT long lasting. So disappointed and would NOT recommend, ESPECIALLY for Oily/Combo skin! 😥😥 #sad

Review for: 3 Cool - for fair skin with cool undertones
This was a sample from Sephora I tested. It was a little too orange on me. Instead of cool I may need a neutral. As with all my trial sizes I give it a go and I think as long as I can find the right color, this will be a good one. It has a light buildable application and is long lasting. The only thing I didn’t do is try it without primer. As I have large pores I usually try it one day without. I do have one more sample in neutral so I’ll have to try it and report back. A little goes a long way which I like on the more pricier items. It didn’t feel tacky and it set well with finishing powder. I usually do what I call a vein test on the top of my hand. And if it can cover my blue veins and still look good with a natural finish I typically have a winner. This one passed.

Review for: 3 Neutral - for fair skin with neutral undertones
I can’t say how much I love this foundation! It’s full coverage but it feels so weightless! It’s longwear, sweat proof, humidity and waterproof formula. I put these claims through a test at a drift event where I was all day long in heat, getting rides which were really sweaty but when I took the helmet off my foundation was still on and looking good enough with no need for touch ups. If you are on a hunt for a new full coverage foundation I don’t think you will find a better one. I forgot to mention that this foundation is also moisturizing for up to 24h and it reduces appearance of wrinkles by up to 22%! I can agree that my skin looks much younger after applying. A little goes a very long way so the price tag is actually not that bad. #foundation #charlottetilbury #flawlessisafeeling #contest

Review for: 1 Neutral - for very fair skin with neutral undertones
I'll start out by saying that I didn't get this product for free, I paid $44 for it. For the amount I paid, I'm unimpressed. Longwear? Absolutely not on my combination skin. It transfered to my fiancé's skin during our engagement photos after having applied it only about an hour before photos. With this foundation, I'm a grease slick by 3 pm and the foundation is broken up on my t-zone. And that's with Hourglass Mineral Veil primer, which is my go-to. The foundation settles in fine lines (and I'm in my mid-20's!) as well as clings and emphasizes dry patches. It applies cakey with my Wayne Goss foundation brush and my Marc Jacobs Face II foundation brush. It may apply better with a beauty blender but since I'm returning the foundation, I'm not going to bother testing it further. The only good thing about this foundation was my color match. I based my shade off of swatches and was pretty dead on. I fortunately didn't listen to the shade matching tool on Sephora's or Charlotte Tilbury's website because both shade 2 and 3 that were recommended would have both been too dark. This foundation is in no way inclusive to all shades of skin though. Overall, this would be good if you're dry but don't have any dry patches and fine lines for the foundation to settle in. I personally wouldn't recommend it though, Estee Lauder Double Wear is better for roughly the same price.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Longwear Foundation How is this foundation with dry skin?
Danielle M. 4 days ago
It worked well! I typically have combination skin and I didn’t have any issues with it. Since it is long lasting and has a thick coverage, it moisturizes very well as a foundation.
