New in Town: Revlon Highlighting Palettes

Revlon Highlighting Palette in Bronze Glow £8.99
Revlon Highlighting Palette in Rose Glow £8.99

I like to pop into my local Boots every so often to see if there are any new makeup products that I can try out. I came across these new Highlighting Palettes from Revlon hiding at the bottom of the stand and snapped them up straight away. They definitely have a Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick look about them, which is no doubt where Revlon got their ideas for this product from. I picked up the shades Bronze Glow and Rose Glow, the only two available in the UK as far as I am aware (I think in the US you can find the shade Peach Glow as well). Both products give good colour pay off, but are not too shimmery for my liking. I'd say the Rose Glow palette works more as a blush than a highlighter; plus I tend to steer away from pink toned highlighters as I have yellow undertones in my skin. I can tell I will get a ton of use out of the Bronze Glow palette as I love to look as bronzed and glowy as possible - it's also an exact dupe for the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze which I will be writing a post on soon. The packaging is sleek and compact, however all of the palettes to choose from in my Boots were scratched which isn't great, but has no consequence on the product inside. I would say that they are pretty well priced considering Revlon seems to be at the higher price end of the drugstore brands. I own two similar highlighting products from Soap and Glory each costing £11.00, and I would probably say that I would reach for the Revlon over the S&G.
The release date of the Revlon Highlighting Powder isn't officially until March. However I have seen these Palettes on at least two other blogs now, so if you are interested in getting your hands on one, it's worth having a look to see if your local Boots have started stocking them early.

Are the Revlon Highlighting Palettes up your street?
