What the brand says
If you're looking for a natural healthy glow Revlon's Highlighting palette is perfect to provide natural highlights. Available in three shades Rose Glow, Bronze Glow and Peach Glow for a different finish.
What initially drew me to the palette is the gorgeous subtle shimmer that is evident in every shade. Bronze Glow is a collection of pinks, browns and white and they have a powder finish. the palettes look very similar to Bobbi Brown shimmer brick and it's only the packaging and slight variation in shades that are different.
The pictures really don't do it justice as you only have to look at it to see the sparkle that is captured. The same goes for the swatch as well and I was disappointed to see how flat it looks in the picture!
I was actually surprised to find that every shade has gorgeous intense shimmer when applied that shows instantly. I've tried a few highlighters recently that have been really disappointing and lacklustre (cough MUA cough) so it's good to see something that has a instant effect!
The white is a lovely iridescent gold shimmer whilst the light pink provides a cute pink highlight. The dark brown is probably too dark to be worn as a highlighter as is the light brown on the bottom. The mid pink is also quite dark and I probably wouldn't use it as a highlighter. Some of the darker shades you can definitely use as a blusher which will give you a warm glow with a bit of sparkle. There's not too much glitter in the shades so it won't look too over the top. Some of the brown shades could even be used as a sparkly bronzer. I did try using all of the shades together as a highlighter but that's a big no no as it's way too dark - it could however also be used a bronzer instead. I only need a little bit to get great colour impact and it barely looked like it touched the palette at all.
Overall a lovely palette with lots of choice and great pigmentation. The only real downside is that it's not entirely a highlighter but I wouldn't say that was a massive problem as it could be used as a bronzer.
I give it 4/5
