Well I literally couldn’t be more excited! A new foundation from Team Tilbury – the brand new Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation to be precise. Well I have been playing with it and it’s everything you would expect it to be. Here are the details and swatches.

How Many Shades of Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation?

So I thought I would cut straight to the chase with the shade chat. Excitingly, there are 44 shades of this new foundation across cool, neutral and warm undertones, so there is pretty much should be something for everyone.

This newbie is an extension of the Flawless line. I absolutely love the Flawless Filter. In fact I actually hoped that was a foundation when it first launched, so this is all my dreams come true – dramatic, I know.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation Features

There is A LOT going on with this foundation!!

  • Magic Replexium Serum – for younger looking skin (clinial trials saw a reduction in lines & wrinkles by 22% in 8 weeks)
  • Aircool technology – for the fresh feel of skin
  • C.T. Defence – Charlotte’s own pollution defence complex
  • Moss Celltec – delivers intense hydration (clinial trials saw 216% increase in hydration after just one hour)
  • 16 hour formula
  • Waterproof, sweat-proof, transfer-proof
  • Weightless full coverage
  • Flawless, poreless, natural matte finish
  • Does not require a primer
  • 44 skin coded shades in pump bottles

It is such a light formula, and you can stretch the smallest dot of product over your whole face. You can layer for more coverage, but it literally covers everything and still looks like skin. I usually like a glowy foundation but this is so good.

Airbrush Flawless Foundation Magic skincare benefits

  • Magic Replexium® Serum (Replexium®) – YOUNGER LOOKING SKIN –  a synergistic complex of two patented peptides that demonstrate quick efficacy by reducing the appearance of wrinkles, making the skin feel firmer within three weeks of use
  • C.T. Defence™ (Depollutine®) – POLLUTION DEFENCE –  a patented blend of natural ingredients, designed to limit the daily exposure of the skin to urban pollutants
  • AirCool™ (Questice®) – FRESH FEEL ON SKIN – works effectively to give a long-lasting perception of cooling. It releases menthol on the skin over time to create a non-aggressive cooling sensation
  • Moss Cell Tech™ – HYDRATION – First biotechnologically produced moss extract, helps in maintaining hydration levels of the skin

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation Swatches

Now I worked with wonderful CT makeup arstist Juan, to get these swatches. I managed to get most of them, however, I had a couple of camera issues so it’s not completely perfect. Also there is a tiny bit of duplication that I didn’t notice until I got home. Sorry!

If you already wear a Tilbury foundation, you may find you want to go one darker. I am usually 3, and matched myself to 3 Cool, but Charlotte took a look and thought I’d do better with 4 Neutral. I now have them both and will have a play and decide.

My Review – Before & After

So I am a fan of this foundation. It delivers a natural looking flawlessness with minimal effort and you hardly need any product to cover the whole face. You can adjust the finish by layering. I think it gets more velvet-matte (very natural), the more you use, and I also think it’s looks better on the skin the longer you wear it.

Before & After

It is very durable. I have had it on the whole day, and been running around like crazy and have gotten very hot (sweating hot!) and it has still stayed on and looks beautiful. I am extremely impressed.

When is Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation Available?

So this is the biggest question. The price is £34 and the launch date is 22nd August 2019 at Charlotte Tilbury

Also, make sure you check out Charlotte Tilbury Magic Vanish Colour Corrector Swatches (also brand new!).

  1. Hi, thank you for this post! This is going to be an absolute pain in the back but I’m an NC27 and I think I would be matched to a 5.5 or 7.5 neutral. What are your thoughts?

    1. looking at them together, I am thinking 7.5. I would normally say 5.5 but I think this formula runs lighter to their other shades. But don’t kill me if I am wrong!!! It’s my best guess! x

  2. Yes, yes, yeeeeeeeeeees!!!! I cannot wait for this to arrive in Dubai. So excited, it looks amazing on you Ree!

  3. Hi! Is there much fragrance in this foundation? I am so excited to try it, but I was hoping for it to be fragrance free like the magic foundation!

  4. Oh gosh, I neeeeeed this in my life – definitely buying on 22 August! The Magic Foundation itself is amazing, and is my HG, but this sounds even more mindblowing. Do you know what shade would match someone who is NC37, and wears shade 7 in the Magic Foundation? Thanks!

    1. It’s very exciting. I am usually a 3 in CT foundations, but Charlotte said I probably needed the 4 neutral in this. Hope that helps! xx

  5. Great review and swatches.
    I really like the sound of this foundation. I’m interested to see how it will work for my dry skin, as I usually find matte ones don’t work great. I’ll have to try a sample of it, when it releases.
    Will you be reviewing the colour correctors and the holiday eyeshadow palette?

  6. I checked the ingredient list and unfortunately it has too much gunk that can cause allergic reaction to the skin and silicones!!! I hate when so many manufacturers fill up the foundations with that… Even IT Cosmetics foundations are full of those ingredients. Oh well probably a pass for me…I cannot risk my rosacea prone skin. Shame!

  7. Hi Ree ! Thanks for the wonderful post and review on youtube ! I’m pretty sure I’ll be buying this foundation but I’m still unsure what shade to get and I cannot go in shop to get a shade match. I thought maybe you could help me out since I think we might have similar skin tone. I’m thinking either shade 3N or 4N. My foundations are the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk shade 5 (this is my fave out of all the foundations and best match I had/tried and is my current foundation), Smashbox studio skin 1.2, Sisley Phyto Tient Eclat N1 Ivory, Laura Mercier Candleglow shade Honey (little bit warm but still ok) and La Mer Soft Fluid shade 13 but thats actually too dark for me. Appreciate the help ! Thanks !
