I have been playing with these new Revlon Highlighting palettes for the last couple of weeks, and I have to say, I am pretty impressed with them. I wasn’t sure at first as they look pretty shimmery and that look doesn’t always work for me. I am still scarred by photos documenting my over-use of Bobbi’s Shimmer Brick in the late 90s! I thought it was an all over powder – shimmer nose is not a good look!
But there’s no shimmer OD with the Revlon Highlighting Palettes and I have respected the notion of highlight, rather than plastering!
Revlon Highlighting Palettes Review
Here’s a closer look:
Revlon Highlighting Palettes Review – Bronze Glow & Rose Glow
There are 2 Highlighting Palettes to choose from – Bronze Glow and Rose Glow – and I actually think there’s room in a makeup collection for both.
Revlon Highlighting Palette Bronze Glow Review
Bronze Glow adds a beautiful radiance and warmth to the skin. It isn’t an over kill shimmer-fest but actually very flattering and pretty.
Revlon HIghlighting Palette Bronze Glow Swatch
I used this one a bit like I would a bronzer – on the cheekbones and a little on the temples and forehead – and I really like the effect. This would be gorgeous to fake some colour, or enhance a natural tan.
The Revlon Highlighting Palette in Rose Glow is super pretty.
Revlon Highlighting Palette Rose Glow Review
I actually used this on top of Bronze Glow to add a natural flush to my cheeks and intensify the highlight. This one is more suited to use as a blusher and highlighter, rather than the Bronze Glow which I think can be used sparingly all over (but not the nose!).
Revlon Highlighting Palette Rose Glow Swatch
In the above pic I have actually used Bronze Glow as an eyeshadow – the palest shade in the inner corners and arch, the rose gold over the lid and the darkest bronze in the crease. It’s an excellent multi-tasker!
The Revlon Highlighting Palettes get the seal of approval from me. The only thing they are missing is a mirror but that would increase the price, and at £8.99 each, I think they are really good value for money. Well done Revlon!
