There are so many new foundation formulas out this season and today I have a review on the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation. It seems like all the foundations came out at the same time to ruffle up our feathers.

The Airbrush Flawless Foundation promises to boost hydration by moisturizing for up to 24 hours and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, while giving a flawless, poreless looking finish that is natural looking and matte.

Available in 44 shades, it has been created to cater to the complexion needs of everyone. I bought this a couple weeks ago from Sephora and I basically matched myself to 7 Warm. I do have a slight tan right now and since my skin lightens and tans very easily depending on the sun, I was afraid it might be too dark for me but it’s actually a perfect color for my NC35-40 skintone. The foundation comes in a frosted bottle with a pump.


I have dry/combo skin (dry around my mouth area, combo on the cheeks and forehead) but I treat my skin as dry skin. This is a matte full coverage foundation that goes on easy. The formula feels weightless on my skin, and it doesn’t look too heavy or done up. Although the brand describes the foundation as having a full coverage matte finish, I found it has a natural demi-matte finish on my skin. It doesn’t look dry on my dry skin and it doesn’t get dry around my mouth area which is usually my problem area when it comes to dryness on my face. It’s subtle in fragrance but it smells pleasant.


On my skin I found it to be medium to fuller coverage. I can cover my entire face with 1.5 pumps and application was best for me with a beauty-blender. I did not feel the need to add concealer (not something I use on a regular basis anyway) under eyes or around the nose with this foundation. I tested this with the primer and without the primer and liked it best with a primer.

Lasting power is very good and I had no need to touch up by the end of day. Some product transfer will occur if you touch your face in the middle of the day but it’s on the slight side. Overall it held up remarkably well. I did find it oxidized once it dried down, but the color does not change significantly. I could have gone down a shade lighter but I’m comfortable with the shade I choose. If you find there is a lot of oxidation on this one it’s most likely you swatched a color too dark for your skin tone!

You can find the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation at Sephora. Have you tried this yet? What did you think?
