I’ve been going through all my make-up over the past few months. Slowly I’m trying to get through what should stay and what should go. I came across this Revlon Bronze Glow bronzer and thought to myself i must try this out again. Over the past two year I think i have finally mastered the art of contouring, note I said think!, and have realised that I was using this product all wrong. I’m not sure what I was thinking, but I was young and foolish so cut me a fucking break OK!!! It’s not the right type of product at all to be using as a contour, so as its summer and sure we all love a good summer bronze glow so I popped it open and dusted it where a bronzer should go.
As its a brick it has four bronze shimmer tones and a white highlight shade at the top. I tend to grab my sigma F40 Large Angled Contour and use it to mix the four bronze shade together. I don’t like the look it gives if i mix in the white shade, feel like a bit of a disco ball. tap off the access product from my brush then lightly bust the product over my temples, cheekbones and hair line. It warms up my skin beautifully!
Then comes that white highlight I’ve been avoiding… Well no more. I place this on the tops of my cheekbones, down the centre of my nose under my brow bone and on my cupids bow. I do this with my finger and then blend it out with my Blank Canvas F40 and sweet Jesus I don’t know how I lived my life with out it! In the image above I didn’t quite catch the highlight on my cheekbones, but believe me, it’s there! I then also added a contour to my cheekbones which was matte and more suited for contouring!
This product is a beautiful one! I would for sure consider buying more products like this one, now that I know what to do with them ha ha! I think they have a peach toned one and I will for sure be trying that out at some stage! I got mine in boots, I usually go when its 3 for 2 as it makes more sense for me. Its comes in about a 10er which I think is a grand oul price.

I’m a huge fan of contouring, I’m not sure I’ve mastered it just yet but I’m getting there!!The past few weeks I’ve been using the Revlon Highlighting Palette (030 Bronze Glow).
When applying this I tend to use my Sigma F40. I do also have another angled contour brush that I have no idea where it came from… it’s a KCO brush and I love it! I found their website but this brush doesn’t seem to be on there. 🙁
The look of the pallet is very similar to the bobbi brown shimmer brick. The Revlon has two colours, a bronzer: Bronze Glow and a blusher: Rose Glow. As a magpie I should love this because it’s super shimmery but for me there’s a bit too much micro glitter in these products. I think for the blush its fab but for a bronzer, for me, it’s a bit ott. In saying that, I found it lovely to use, they blend reasonably well, with buildable colour and the texture it very light and well… powdery.
Over all I wouldn’t use it again myself but I would recommend it to a friend.
