Beauty: A Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Bronze and Glow dupe?

We all know that Makeup Revolution/I Heart Makeup are pretty into their dupes. Over the past couple of years we’ve seen them dupe popular eyeshadow palettes from high end brands such as Urban Decay and Too Faced which have mostly received great reviews and they’ve recently come out with some dupes of the famous Kylie lip kits too. When I saw the new Bronze and Glow palette on the Superdrug website, I knew straight away that it was meant to be a dupe for the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow palette which has been high on my wishlist for years but is way out of my price range at almost £50, so I just had to buy it and try it out.

The packaging of I Heart Makeup’s Bronze and Glow palette is reminiscent of the Chocolate palettes that they have already released which are dupes of the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palettes, however it’s half the size. Priced at just £6, the I Heart Makeup palette is a much cheaper alternative to the original, however the quality is obviously not going to be the same. The Charlotte Tilbury palette comes in two shades, however the I Heart Makeup one only comes in one which is closer to the CT one in ‘Fair/Medium’.

The palette features two pans, one bronzer and one highlighter. Unlike the CT palette, these are different sizes and the highlighter is slightly bigger than the bronzer. I was worried that the bronzer was going to be a bit too warm for my skin tone, but luckily it’s just right. It gives me enough of a healthy glow without looking orange. It’s not a great shade for contouring but it is perfect for just bronzing up my face and adding a bit of colour back into it after applying my foundation. The highlighter is a lovely champagne shade, it’s not too pigmented but it still adds a nice shimmer to my cheekbones and down my nose which really helps to finish off a makeup look.

As I don’t own the Charlotte Tilbury palette, I can’t do a direct comparison however I have swatched it many times whilst in Selfridges and I know that the quality is a lot better than the I Heart Makeup one. That being said, I can’t afford to spend £49 on one product so the Bronze and Glow palette will do just fine for now.

    I want/need the Charlotte Tilbury bronze and glow dupe, just for the packaging, I love the look of it, and would use it sparingly so it lasted x

    I do like the packaging of this, and for those who don’t want to splurge on Charlotte Tilbury, this is a great alternative x

    I love the Charlotte Tilbury palette but like you just can’t spend £50 on it! This looks a great alternative, I’m a fan of the Make Up Revolution dupes so I’ll be looking out for this one.

    It’s good that you’ve got an alternative until you can justify buying the Charlotte Tilbury version x

    I love finding a good dupe! This one looks like it’ll be good enough to do the trick.

    I have the CT one and I do love it, not sure I could find a replacement for it.

    I really love the packaging of this and for only £6 I hope to give it a try once I get my hands on one. Thanks for that as I’d never have known about this if you hadn’t posted x

    I really don’t need any more highlighters in my life but this looks amazing and so pretty! Great dupe! xo

    Definitely think it’s worth it for that price, even if it isn’t quite as good!

    I love Charlotte Tilbury, and I recently worked with the brand on a Valentines Giveaway!

    These Superdrug shadows make me hungry, just looking at them. Love the shades you’ve got yourself.
