1. Use my POWDER & SCULPT BRUSH to dust Bar of Gold onto your cheekbones. When applying, focus on the C-shape that hugs the eye area, right up to the temples.

2. Brush delicately down the centre of your nose, concentrating on the bridge. The reflective super-fine golden pearls will slim and sculpt too!

3. Make sure you carefully blend the product, so it doesn't collect on the tip of your nose.

4. Apply sparingly to the cupid’s bow of the mouth, and then gently blend.

5. Using my POWDER & SCULPT BRUSH apply a golden veil of light to your shoulders, down the centre of the arms, and across the décolletage for added luminescence.

•Charlotte’s Tip: Use the Bar of Gold highlighter with my Air-Brush Flawless Finish Micro-Powder for perfect adherence!

Charlotte Tilbury Bar of Gold - Skin Highlighter is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 123.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from BAR OF GOLD Very bad product. Small, expensive and quality is not good - who wants flecks of glitter all over their face?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from BAR OF GOLD The product itself is lovely. Its a lovely gold shade, similar to heatwave etc. The things that let it down are the size and hideous cardboard packaging!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Product packaging The packaging of the product is very cheap. The bar is not secured properly and just falls out. A very disappointing product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bar of gold Cheaply packaged for 42.00. The shadow feel out of the box when I opened it. Very disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from BAR OF GOLD The actual product is ok, but no better than the "Bronze and Glow". I expected better packaging, considering the price and Charlotte's other products. Very surprised that it comes in a gold cardbord!? Why not in a lovely gold metal container like the "Bronze and Glow"?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from BAR OF GOLD Packaging poor. Disappointed with the product which I found too sparkly and yellow-toned. Much prefer the highlighter in the duo sculpting compact as it's more natural.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pale gold! I wasn't sure if this gold would work on my skin as I am fair. It is dreamy! Perfect sheer pale glow. I have read reviews where people were upset about the size. This is small but the buttery pigmented formula will last FOREVER! The only bummer is that it is so soft, it broke in half during shipping :(. I opened to find a crack right through the middle. Perhaps this is unavoidable due to the softness of the powder?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BAR OF GOLD Gorgeous colour but overpriced... Not impressed with spending over £30 for something so tiny in cardboard packaging!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is the most perfect gold This bar of gold is a godsend. The pigment is so dense and concentrated that you don't have to layer or use a lot of product. The tone and lightness of the gold are perfect, it makes it very versatile. I have used it as both eye shadow and a highlighter and love it as both. However, the downside was that the shadow bar had separated from the base sometime on it's way to me, I assume the fragility of the shadow is due to the velvety-ness of the shadow itself. Also the packaging is super cute but honestly feels a little on the cheap side.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Expected better This product is very subtle and not pigmented at all. You have to dig in to get any product. Once you later it on, it’s pretty but to be honest, it’s no prettier than a drug store highlighter. I love this brand. I have a ton of CT products but this one was a total disappointment for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BAR OF GOLD One of the prettiest highlighters I've ever seen! It's so beautiful that I didn't even want to swatch it at first but now I can't seem to stop using it! Every other highlighter seems poor in comparison. I would definitely recommend this to anyone hesitant about buying it- it's most definitely worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BAR OF GOLD This is a lovely product; well designed packaging, excellent block of pressed gold powder so it's not messy, I can see it will last ages and gives great highlighting over makeup, very impressed. I used to use benefit high beam (liquid) but will continue to use this new products as it will travel better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BAR OF GOLD I watched the video of Charlotte Tilbury use the bar of gold before using and that helped a lot. It's a beautifully packaged product and the colour is gorgeous. Once on the face it just gives a hint of highlight without being too glittery or too much colour. Absolutely fantastic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glorious product encased in awful packaging This product is beautiful, the powder doesn't crease and it's easy to build up from a light shimmer to something very dramatic BUT the cardboard packaging is really cheap and ugly. It also means you wouldn't travel with this product as it would fall apart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully Glossy Box Bought last week, brings a lovely healthy sheen to my fair skin, the colour is buildable and I prefer this as an evening look rather than a daytime on. Have had some compliments since wearing and by the way, I love the packaging!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bar of Gold Love this product as it gives my skin a beautiful glow. As a powder though, it can accentuate eye wrinkles in my older skin a bit but brilliant on the cheek bone, nose and apples of my cheeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! It was for a gift and she absolutely loved it! The gift box made it look fantastic! Have bought lots of other items from here and would recommend them all :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BAR OF GOLD I have many products by Charlotte Tilbury but I was slightly disappointed in the quality of the container that the product is in as its only a carboard box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shimmery prettiness I bought this for a friend and am desperate for one myself as it just looks so pretty on the cheekbones. Really nice on the brow bone as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BAR OF GOLD It's very small and a little deceiving however lovely on the skin and very flattering but not sure I'd purchase it again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional highlighter I love how subtle yet dramatic this product s, I sea it as eyeshadow and highlighter, even on top of lipstick.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BAR OF GOLD Little bit disappointed with the size, I thought it would be bigger. I suppose it is quality over quantity

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good highlighter Bought this for my daughter as a 16th birthday gift. Surprised when it arrived as it's teeny for the price and the packaging looks very cheap. However she was delighted with it and thinks it's great. Only recommendation is you need to use the correct brush to get it to go on properly.
