Revlon Highlighting Palette in Bronze Glow Review

Revlon Highlighting Palette in Bronze Glow

It seems more and more brands are keen to introduce strip style bronzers and highlighting powders.
Not that I am complaining as you typically receive more bang for your buck. The style means you can of course use it as a solid block or use each strip individually which is why I purchased it but not for my cheeks, oh no I want it as a mini eyeshadow palette.

The packaging of the Revlon Highlighting Palettes is nothing remarkable nor is it worthy of complaint. A small square black, glossy plastic compact that features a transparent lid so you can easily see the shade held inside. Admittedly it is not the prettiest out there but it more than does the job and is fairly robust so it should be ideal for daily transportation a.k.a it survived a fairly rough journey in my handbag.

Revlon Highlighting Palette comes in two colour ways : Bronze Glow and Rose Glow. I purchased Bronze Glow as the rose gold hues coupled with a good few bronze tones really appealed to me also when applied as a solid colour this takes on a really flattering warm gold hue that is the perfect middle ground between bronzer and highlighter. Soft and subtle yet shimmer based making it perfect for the summer months. You can of course apply the shades as individual shades which in my opinion works best with a small brush making the Revlon Highlighting Palette the perfect mini eyeshadow kit. The rose gold bar which is second from the bottom reminds me of L'Oreal's Color Infalliable Eyeshadow in Amber Rush which as you will know is neigh impossible to get in the UK. If you are looking for a dupe then I highly recommend this dinky Revlon highlighting palette.

The texture of the Revlon Highlighting Palette is firm in texture but is well pigmented. On the plus side the firm texture does mean that it is hard to over do it in terms of application and it isn't prone to product fall out. I do recommend using in conjunction with a primer in both instances as without I did find that my oily skin reduced the wear time significantly. On my eyes this wears for a good 8-9 hours with a primer. If you are looking for a good all round bronze based palette that won't cost the earth I do recommend giving the Revlon Highlighting Palette in Bronze Glow a whirl!
