Charlotte Tilbury's Airbrush Flawless Foundation Is the Longest-Lasting Foundation I've Ever Tried
Face, meet Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation. The brand's latest base product answers the hopes and dreams of everyone on the hunt for a full-coverage foundation that lasts the entire day, gives a glow without being sticky, and (as the name suggests) leaves behind an airbrushed finish. As someone with dehydrated and hormonal breakout-prone skin, I need a foundation that can withstand an entire day of rush-hour commutes, work events, and sweaty workouts (I know, I know, I'm not supposed to wear makeup to the gym, but sometimes a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do), and after testing out this foundation for four weeks, it appears I've found what I need.
I got my hands on a sample of this foundation a month ago, and I've been wearing it ever since. And let me tell you: this sh*t lasts. The newbie promises a lot — 16-hour wear, a natural matte finish, and both sweat- and transfer-resistant — and I'm not lying when I say that it delivers on those promises.
One of my favourite things about the Airbrush Flawless Foundation is that even though it's full-coverage, it doesn't conceal my skin like a mask. I don't want it to. My freckles are still very much on display. That being said, if I want to cover a spot, I can very easily do that by adding a few more layers and using a smaller brush rather than a sponge or my fingers.
