Hi my angels,
I am always crazy for highlighters and I love that ultimate glow on my skin. I always wanted to pick a highlighter palette and then I found this affordable Makeup Revolution Shimmer Brick palette. I did a nontouring makeup look with this palette. It is just a perfect product for me and will last me long; I am totally obsessed with the glow provided by this. So let’s get into the details.
Price: Rs. 600/-

My Experience with Makeup Revolution London Radiant Shimmer Brick Palette:
Packaging is so simple and light weight one that looks so pretty. It comes in a flat square plastic container with a clear lid. I really like this see-through packaging but the lid doesn’t close with click. Still it closes tightly and overall it is a travel friendly container. Only, I wish it came with a mirror too. In comparison to the other highlighter palettes, it is super affordable.
Shimmer Brick palette comes with two shades variation and I have the shade Radiant. One palette contains 5 gorgeous shades and it has variety of shades from, light to deep.
Shade 1: First shade is a beautiful light whitish golden shade with noticeable golden shimmer in it. It is the best shade for highlighting.
Shade 2: Next is my favorite one, it’s a pretty rose gold shade with pink undertone and it provides that most desirable subtle glow to my face. I also like to use it as an eyeshadow.
Shade 3: This is a warm light brownish golden shade with peach undertone. It can be used for sun-kissed look. This looks so nice on medium to dark skin tone and it also works pretty well as eyeshadow.
Shade 4: Next is again a nice champagne or pretty beige shade with peach undertone which provides a nice soft glow to skin.
Shade 5: Last is the darkest shade in this palette and it’s a gorgeous bronze shade with warm undertone. It works best as a bronzer.
This palette will suit almost all skin tones. All the shade combination is really beautiful and they provide a super glow to my skin. All the shades are nicely pigmented; it needs only one swipe for the true color to show up. It highlights my skin and gives that illuminating effect.
Texture & quality: All the shades are so smooth and soft in texture. They glide easily on my skin and provide that soft natural glow to skin. It never highlights dry patches or never looks patchy on skin. Its smooth fine texture blends effortlessly on skin and it has finely melted shimmers in it and not glitters so the glow looks natural and very subtle. It has never clogged my pores and it never makes skin oily. I have very sensitive skin but it suits me perfectly.
Staying power: As I have oily skin so I always use a primer underneath my highlighter and it stays really long on my skin, around 7-8 hours with primer. Without a primer it looks little messy at the end of the day, otherwise it is an all-day wear highlighter. It never moves from its place and never creases. It transfers a little but not crazily. I really like the formulation.
Overall I am so impressed with this. Just one touch of this highlighter makes my skin bright and glowing and I am ready to go. It is a nice dupe of Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Palette, but here you only spend 600 bucks on this Makeup Revolution one. So I have no complains about this. This is a multitasking palette which can also be used as eye shadows. It is great for nontouring and strobing look. It gives the ultimate glow on my skin.
