Revlon Bronze Glow Highlighting Palette Review / Swatches

5th December 2014

Ever since Bobbi Brown launched their range of Shimmer Bricks, every brand under the sun have released their own equivalent. Revlon followed suit early this year with their Highlighting Palettes which are available in two shades here in the UK; Revlon Bronze Glow Highlighting Palette and Rose Glow and there’s a third shade which is Peach Glow which is available in the US. Each of the Highlighting Palettes are £8.99, and are packaged within a black, square plastic compact with a clear lid. The palette is made up of five different shimmer strips, which can be used individually or altogether.

I have the Revlon Bronze Glow Highlighting Palette* which like the name suggests, is a bronzy toned palette although there’s actually only two bronze strips so don’t be put off if you think it’s too dark toned if you have pale skin. Alongside the 3rd and 4th bronzy hued strips, there is a white which is perfect as a browbone highlight, a rose gold and a taupey brown. If you blend you brush all over the palette, it creates a very subtle pinky bronze shade which works a treat at warming up the complexion when applied with a large, fluffy bronzer brush.
 
If you use a large brush lighting over the palette, the shimmery effect is quite subtle in that it gives more of a sheen than a shimmer.. the Revlon Bronze Glow Highlighting Palette swatches above are heavily swatched, so they’re a lot more concentrated than you’d get when applying with a brush.
 
Even though the Revlon Bronze Glow Highlighting Palette is designed to be an highlighting palette for the cheeks, I prefer to use the shades as eyeshadows as I don’t typically like using a shimmery bronzer, although come Summer, I imagine it’ll add a stunning sunkissed glow to the skin. I think the shades are really pretty and they blend well too with little to no fall out and I think it’s a great budget alternative for the £35 Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks.
