Revlon Highlighting Palette in Rose Glow Review
So, this is supposed to be a multi-tasking palette. It can be used as a highlighter, a blush, and an eyeshadow.

As an eyeshadow? Probably not because the shades are too similar plus there's just too much fallout when you use it first. Don't even get me started on the overlay of chunky glitter at the top. It's actually good news for me that the chunky glitter is gone now that I've swatched and brushed the hell out of it.

As for a highlighter, well, my skin tone's more on the yellow-side and as you can see from the first swatch above, colors swirled together, it's really more pink. Even if I use just the lightest shade, it still leans pinkish. It's okay as a highlighter but I don't use it that much because I think it's better suited for those fair skinned beauties with colder undertones.

When used as a blush, I still think it would better suit fairer and cooler skin tones compared to my olive-yellowish-skin. I'd rather use a matte blush first and top it off with this palette rather than use this solely.

Packaging-wise, it's very sturdy and travel friendly for me because I dropped it and it's still good to go. No cracks whatsoever. Do have in mind that this doesn't have a mirror, an eyeshadow sponge etc. You really need to have a brush for this one. Formula wise, it isn't that powdery, so I'll give it plus points for that. Pigmentation on warmer skin tones are so-so. I think this would go well with fairer skin. And for the price, quite high for something that promises a lot but doesn't deliver that much. Good thing I bought it on sale at 50% off.

All in all, I believe it's an okay product. I use it more as a blush but I always have to partner it with my matte blushes. Using this as highlight over the cheeks is okay for me, but not in the nose area as it leans pink. As for eyeshadow, I'd suggest using a very good primer and be careful of the chunky glitter as they may get stuck in your eyelids. And if you're on the warmer side, just skip this shade and go for the bronzer ones.


  1. Buti talaga yung peach glow nasakin. :))

    1. totoo bang mas maganda? i mean colorwise for our skin and more pigmented ba?

  2. the shade is actually pretty, but I have to agree with you, this wouldn't pass as an eyeshadow. to bad it's chalky though. at least you got it at 50% off hehe
