The Revolution Pro Blush and Glow Palette launched back in October with three different palettes, each containing three baked blush, highlight and bronzer shades for £10 each. There were a lot of mentions on social media that the palettes looked like a promising Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette dupe, so I had to give one a try.
Revolution Pro Blush and Glow Palette
The Revolution Pro Blush and Glow Palette is available in three different shade options;
- Peach Glow – A soft peach blusher with complimenting highlighter and bronzing tones
- Rose Glow – A subtle rose pink blush with complimenting highlighter and bronzer
- Cranberry Glow – A rich deep cranberry blusher with complimentary highlighter and bronzing tones
“The Revolution Pro Blush and Glow Palette offers a trio of gorgeous baked shimmery blush, highlight and bronzing powders. Perfect for on-the go application, apply to give the skin a subtle shimmer, all over glow, targeted highlight, or build up for a more intense strobe effect.
Each palette has been formulated with a mix of shimmer and marbled powders and encased in a gorgeous gold palette, perfect for gifting or keeping for yourself!“
I chose the Revolution Pro Blush and Glow Palette in the lightest shade option; Peach Glow, which contains a marbled peach, dark brown and bright gold design. The middle shade is a bright pink with champagne and mauve marbling, and the third shade is a medium pink with brown and bright pink marbling.
Due to this palette being a baked palette, the shades will all look very different from palette to palette with different marbling. Compared to the above stock image, the Revolution Pro Blush and Glow Palette in Peach Glow looks completely different. So much so, it looks like a completely different product, even more so when you see the swatches below….
The first shade in my Revolution Pro Blush and Glow Palette is a very dark orange, the middle is a bright peach and the third is a peachy gold. They’re all extremely shimmery, and the last two shades in the palette are super glittery which isn’t my vibe.
Revolution did describe the powders as having a shimmery finish, but I didn’t expect them to be glittery. They look chunky on the skin, and really emphasise any peach fuzz.
I hate how the three powders leave my skin looking textured when it is isn’t at all, and for £10 it’s just a disappointment unfortunately. I wish Revolution would bring back their matte and satin blush palettes they used to have, as not everyone wants to look glittery and textured.
