If you’ve read our blog before you might have seen us mention Revlon products before. We’re big fans of their Colorstay foundation, PhotoReady primer, lip butters, nail varnish and many other products so it was only a matter of time before I got my hands on their Skinlights as well.
I bought these on a 3 for 2 deal with their primer (a review of which you can find here) and they’re always on offer which is why I’m almost always picking something up from them.
I decided to get both the Bronze Light and Pink Light because well, why not!
So the packaging for this is quite sleek and can be hard to open, you almost have to ‘snap’ the lid when you twist it off which worried me the first time but I just had to get it open!
The Pink Light can be compared with Benefit’s High Beam which has been on the market for a very long time.
You can see on my hand both of the products (clearly I have no fake tan on here, what a ghost!).
Both of which are quite creamy and feel quite thin, which usually means they blend well but that all depends on the quality…
When blended in you can see that the Pink Light has blended easily and leaves a shimmer that looks great in the light and could be mixed with moisturiser or foundation for a slight shimmer all over or applied directly to cheek bones and cupids bow for highlighting specific areas.
The Bronze Light looks significantly scarier compared to my pasty pallor, but I promise you this also blends so easily and looks great for defining cheek bones and again mixed with foundation/moisturiser.
I would never have picked up the Bronze Light before but now i know about contouring it’s been great for the weekends and meals with friends.
The photo below shows me with both highlighters on, the Pink Lights on my upper cheek bones to highlight and the Bronze Lights in the hollows to define them.
It’s not the best photo as it’s on my phone taken at 6am….oops! But you can see how nicely it has blended with my foundation and also how they have both done the jobs they were designed for, I have a lovely contoured cheek bone that took seconds to create!
Have you tried Revlon Skinlights? Which is your favourite? Do you think it’s a good dupe for High Beam?
I am so sure that these will have many other uses, including mixing with body moisturisers and contouring decolletage, legs etc.
