It's not often I listen to hype about powder products from the blogosphere. My dry skin hates powder most days and it's why I skip powder blushers in favour of cream (that stay cream,) stain and gel formulations...
However when I heard about the raving reviews of the Revlon Highlighting Palette and on a standard pilgrimage to Boots and swatched away... Well, love at first swatch, can I say?
As far as I am aware there are only two variations available in the UK - I've seen 'Peach Glow' from US blogs (and stomped my feet in jealousy...) but from a choice of 'Bronze Glow' and 'Rose Glow' - I knew the bronze would be more flattering... and for once my optimism about 'bronze' products was true. It's beautiful.
I know, my face has rarely graced the blog over the years but it's the kind of product that calls for an in-action shot. What I captured here was the overall glow that translates onto the skin. It isn't at all glittery and the shimmer is barely noticeable - what's left is a pretty, bronze glow that actually suits my pale skin (shock horror, it's a rarity) and blends like a dream.
My favourite way to apply this is actually with the Real Techniques Buffing Brush - worked mainly onto the cheekbones but up towards the temple slightly and also slightly down near the cheeks.
It also stayed in place for eight plus hours - there was no need for touching up at all. Me, in love with a face powder product? Who would've thought it...
Have you tried the Revlon Highlighting Palette?
P.s, My internet and/or laptop is actually messed up beyond all recognition! Please bare with me as posts will either be non-existent or later than usual.
