This isn’t going to be one of those reviews where you are left in suspense to the last word as to the opinion of the author.
I love these Radiant Light powders.
You may wish to stop reading now if you are a busy person. There are, after all, always emails to read, clients to see and things to do, but, if you want to find out why I love these Radiant Light powders from Makeup Revolution then read on.
Firstly, lets talk about the packaging. The outer box is a really beautiful rose gold that is super reflective. I only wear rose gold so this is a winner for me straight up. The compacts themselves are very sturdy, black cases with a really good quality mirror. I love the concentric circle design that is imprinted on these and the signature rose gold lettering on the front. Unfortunately that lettering will rub off over time, but I have to say that these feel and look luxurious.
These Radiant Light powders are intended to be a dupe for the Hourglass Ambient lighting powders. I don’t own the Hourglass powders to do a comparison for you, but from what I have seen online, they are a pretty close match.
These powders are very finely milled and easy to blend. Because they are baked they don’t kick up a lot of powder when you dip your brush in, but they are really pigmented and soft. They give a ‘lit from within’ kind of illumination rather than a more metallic shimmer. I use these a lot during the day and for work because they are subtle while still being beautiful.
I have acquired these Radiant Light powders individually over the last 12 months. I initially purchased Exhale as it was the lightest shade and I wanted to try one out. I was so impressed that I purchased Breathe and then in a recent order I picked up Glow and I love them both too. I actually use all three sometimes:
- Breathe: very lightly all over the face as a finishing powder,
- Glow: like I might use a bronzer to warm up the completion,
- Exhale: more concentrated to the cheek bones and other areas traditionally highlighted.
You can buy these three compacts in a single palette which I think is a great idea and when the time comes to replace these powders I will purchase the compact for convenience.
If my entire collection of makeup was lost tomorrow these powders would be on my immediate list of things to repurchase which I think is a clear indication of how much I enjoy them. If you want to have a look for yourself you can find these products on the Makeup Revolution website.
Have a fantastic day!!
