Revlon Bronze Highlighting Palate Review


I absolutely love this Revlon Highlighting Palate in Bronze Glow 030 and I am even wishing I had picked up the Rose Gold palate as well! I first heard about this from Lily and really liked the idea of a cheek product which could also be used on the eyes. I thought that this would be perfect for weekends away when you don't want to carry a lot of products. 

There are four bronze shimmery shades and a pale highlight to compliment the darker colours. At first I was a little sceptical at how much I would like such a sparkly range of colours but once applied my worries were soon replaced with feelings of love! I was really surprised at the pigmentation and how well the powders blended to leave a radiant bronzed sweep across my cheeks. Now I would not apply this all over my face or as a contour but for a sun kissed look it is perfect. It is also the dream for people in a rush (read lazy if you are like me) as this acts as a bronze and highlighter in one. There is also a pinker shade which gives the a look a very slightly flushed hue so I sometimes don't bother with blusher either. It lasts pretty well but I have also found this perfect for in the afternoon when you need a slight pick me up as it really adds a glow back into your complexion. 

I did try it as an eyeshadow at the weekend and although the colours blended beautifully together they did crease after a few hours. Maybe with a primer or paint pot underneath this would not happen but I am yet to try this combination. 

I have been thoroughly surprised by how much I adore this Revlon Highlighting Palate and think it will be a firm favourite during the summer to give my skin that warm sun kissed glow. For £8.99 I think it is definitely worth the purchase and I will be probably be purchasing the pinker version Rose Glow on my next visit to Boots. 

What did you think of this Revlon offering?

    1. They are a lovely bronzed highlight. Not sure about contouring though as there is some shimmer. X

  2. I picked this up a couple of weeks ago but didn't purchase as it looked so glittery, maybe I need to take another look!

    1. I thought that too but it is very subtle when it is on the skin. I am not one for too much glitter and I love it! X
