So I recently picked up this blush and contour palette by Revolution. It’s called the Golden Sugar Palette and it comes with 2 highlighters, 4 blushes and 2 bronzers. They’re all together in a nice rectangle black plastic case, which is kind of hard to open but is very secure, so there’s no chance of it breaking in your bag and spilling everywhere.
All the colours are really pigmented and look lovely on the skin. None of the colours have names, so I’m just going to give them names I made up, because why not. The first two are highlighters, called George Clooney and The Goblin King (yeah see I’m great at naming things). The George Clooney highlighter  is a very light pale colour whilst the Goblin King  is a very light biege highlighter. I’ve used both and although both are very pigmented I much prefer George Clooney which I’ve been applying under my eyebrows and along my jaw line as it looks a lot nicer on the skin and shows up a lot more on my pale face.
There’s also 4 blushes in this set, which I’m going to give amazing names. The first one, which I’m going to cool Pina Colada  is a very light sweet pink shade, the second one which I’ve been calling Flamingo  is very similar to Pina Colada but just a little bit darker. Below that are Just a little Wine  which is a very dark coral blush and next to that is Too Much Wine  which is a very dark red with sort of golden undertones. All the blushes have a slight shimmer to them. The last two items in the palette are two bronzers. The first I have named Drunk Christmas Tree  and it’s a very nice shimmery golden brown. The next one which I have called Sober Christmas Tree  is a very light matte brown.
I’ve mostly been using George Clooney , The Goblin King , Flamingo  and Pina Colada . I’ve found all the colours to be very very pigmented and that they stand out on the skin a lot. I love using George Clooney to highlight under my brow because I’m very pale and I find it very hard to find a highlighter that stands out against my skin without making me look like a twilight sparkling vampire. But George Clooney and The Goblin King work very well on my skin and make it so I look light I actually have some resemblance of bones in my otherwise round face.
The blushes and bronzers are also read good, very pigmented and last for a long time. This is one of the best palettes I’ve ever used from revolution and I absolutely adore it.
Thanks for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day :)
So I recently picked up the Tanya Burr Peachy Glow Cheek Palette. I picked it up because I liked the look of the product and the really pretty packaging. The product comes in a small silver and pink striped box with a dark pink scallop pattern around the edge.
The product itself contains a bronzer, blush and highlighter. Each section is imprinted with a pattern and each product has a name. The bronzer has little lines going through it and is named Beach Bronze, the Blush is called Apricot Flush and has little hearts going through it and the highlighter is called Champagne Shimmer and has little snowflakes and starts printed on it. I really do like the highlighter as I think it gives a nice white glow without too much shine. The blush is a nice peachy shade in the palette but is not very pigmented in my opinion, it might just be because I have very pale skin but it just doesn’t work very for me at all. The bronzer is also a very nice light brown colour that is very pigmented. Both the bronzer and highlighter have good staying power but the blush, again isn’t that good.
Overall this is an okay palette. The bronzer and the highlighter are nice but the blush is a little disappointing. I’d probably give it a 6/10.
I got this in a giftset like a really long time ago and I’ve only used it a few times. It’s mostly because it’s a very very dark orange powder and I have very very pale skin so of course it makes me look really really orange. The powder itself is also quite thick and layers on your skin in layers which is kind of annoying (and hard to describe). I’ve also had some trouble with the container which seems to open by itself a lot and leak powder all over everything, which is really annoying. This would probably work well for you if you’ve got quite naturally tanned or dark skin, unlike mine which is so pale I could be mistake for a corpse. Anyway I’m probably not the best person to review this since it doesn’t work for my tone but here ya go.

It’s really hard for me to find bronzers that work since I have really really pale skin so bronzers usually make my skin look really orange. I hate that and I really wish I had more tanned skin. This bronzer is one of the only ones I’ve found that actually works with my skin tone. It comes out a very rich coffee brown but once brushed over properly it blends well with your skin tone to make it look just a little darker without making it to obvious you’re wearing it. Also I should mention this is from Revoultion brand and only cost £3 pounds which is just amazing for such a good product.
