I love products that give you a glow. Even though I have combination skin, there is just something so special about products that bestow your skin with that ethereal glow. Don’t you agree? And one has to agree Charlotte Tilbury is the queen of glow. So when she came out with the Charlotte Tilbury Glow Glide Face Architect Highlighter I had to get one for myself.
The Sephora website says this is “A powder highlighter that glides on like a liquid to give skin an instant, skin-perfecting filter to highlight, sculpt, and lift. Get the rich-pigment payoff of a pressed powder with the glide-on satin texture of a liquid highlighter. This glow-boosting formula illuminates and blurs the skin with smoothing emollients for a satin texture without caking, creasing, or fallout.”
Packaging Of The Charlotte Tilbury Glow Glide Face Architect Highlighter
The highlighter comes packaged in a gold mirrored compact. It sort off looks like the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder compact. But this highlighter compact has the word Hollywood written on it and some stars drawn on it as well. The powder itself has a star detailing on it, which is so pretty.
I want to add that the packaging feels very light. The pan is loose and spins while using the product. For the price point I expected better.

- Moonlit Glow – incandescent ivory
- Champagne Glow – sparkling champagne

I tried Champagne Glow, Gilded Glow and Bronze Glow. And I picked Champagne Glow.
I use the Charlotte Tilbury Glow Glide Face Architect Highlighter with a fan brush or a fluffy highlighter brush. This shade works on my medium and is a subtle highlighter. I do not see any glitter on my face, just a glow. In my opinion it adds something special to my look, without being over the top. So I enjoy using this for everyday looks. The color also looks nice as an inner corner highlight.
People who like subtle highlighters will enjoy this. I love the beautiful, natural looking glow. Keep in mind this is not a blinding highlighter. I just wish the magnet was stronger and the pan would not move around while using.
- Beautiful, subtle highlighter
- 6 shades to pick from
- I wish the packaging was more sturdy
