Ever since Revolution first launched, they’ve created so many different contour palettes. They’ve had both creams and powders, with big multi shade palettes and smaller duos. With a lot of the Revolution launches, the products aren’t around for the longest as they’re constantly discontinuing products and creating new ones. I used to love the Revolution Renaissance Glow Contour and Highlighter Palette, and it’s crazy to me that they chose to discontinue it as it was bloody brilliant. Revolution Pro recently introduced a collection of three contour palettes, and I bought the Revolution Pro Sculpt and Glow Contour and Highlight Palette in the lightest shade available.
The Revolution Pro Sculpt and Glow Contour and Highlight Palette trio are £8 each, and are available in Sands of Time, Desert Sky and Savanna Nights. I do really appreciate that Revolution Pro have given us three different contour palettes, to suit multiple skin tones. Many brands launch one single contour palette as if it’s going to work for everyone, when that’s never the case. Revolution really are great for catering for a wide range of skintones in all of their product ranges.

Revolution Pro Sculpt and Glow Review and Swatches
The palette includes a contour powder, and a highlighter powder with 2 grams of product for each shade. The packaging is very sleek, with a golden chrome effect plastic base and clear lid. The pans both have a raised ripped design, which I did wonder whether it would give the powders a rough texture like many powders with a similar raised design. Both the highlighter and contour shade are very soft and smooth, which hopefully you can see in the swatches above.
The Revolution Pro Sculpt and Glow in Sands of Time contains a super flattering cool toned chocolate brown contour shade and a pale gold highlighter shade. Both shades work really well for pale skin, although the highlighter is a little too warm for my liking but that’s just my personal preference. I much prefer a cooler toned highlighter but it works well with the cool toned contour, to add warmth to the skin.
The shades in this particular palette are very, very similar to those within the discontinued Renaissance Glow Palette – so much so, I think they might even be the same shades so if you were gutted when Revolution discontinued that palette, definitely give the Revolution Pro Sculpt and Glow in Sands of Time a go. The contour gives a natural shadow to the skin with a matte finish, and the highlighter has a buildable formula which can be built up for a wet look sheen on the skin.
