Makeup Revolution: ‘Radiant’ Vivid Shimmer Brick

When Makeup Revolution released their new Shimmer Brick compacts I was immediately drawn to them.  I suspected that they would be too shimmery to use as a bronzer but I hoped that perhaps as a highlighter, blush topper or eyeshadow they may work really nicely.

I have not been disappointed.

Makeup Revolution – Shimmer Brick: Radiant

I purchased the Shimmer Brick in Radiant as I thought as the lighter version of the two I may be able to use it as a highlighter.  With a brush directed at the lightest tones it makes a very vivid highlight and even though it comes across as a darker champagne colour when used in this way, it is shiny enough that I think I can get away with it.  I was surprised that when mixed the overall colour is actually light enough to be used as a shimmery bronzer too if you want a bit of overall glow.  Be warned though – if you don’t blend this out they will be able to see your glow from space 🙂  Use a light hand!

This Shimmer Brick is PIGMENTED.  Each strip functions completely as a discrete colour and so this makes a really compact and very beautiful eyeshadow palette too.  I have loved this for travel.  I just use some of my matte bronzer in the crease and these shimmers on the lid and it really is stunning.  I wish now that I had just lashed out and purchased both versions of the Shimmer Bricks because I enjoy the formula so much for eyeshadow use!  The Rose Gold version is now on my wish list!

Overall I have been very impressed with how much I have enjoyed this product.  I have worn it mainly as a highlighter and as eyeshadow and it has always looked beautiful.  Although the powder can kick up a bit of dust if you aren’t gentle, I haven’t had an issue with fallout and this lasts all day on my face and eyes.  At 3GBP or approximately AU$6 I think this is a very budget-friendly, cruelty-free purchase!

Have a wonderful week!
