Remember when the first shimmer brick became available? I do and I remember wanting it badly but I never did buy it. It was too expensive and it was too shimmery for me. I tested it so many times yet walked away looking like a glitter ball. Sadness prevailed. When Makeup Revolution sent their Shimmer Brick Radiant I was afraid, very afraid!! I thought it was just beautiful but all I could remember is the glitter ball. But I’m a champ and giving this a go was the only way to find out my results.
The results are positive. This $7 palette (exclusive to Ulta) is everything I was hoping for years ago. There’s a glow to it but there’s surprisingly no glitter. I was truly amazed by that fact. There are 5 shades in it that blend together beautifully to give me a golden peach glow. It’s not a palette I can wear on an everyday basis but nothing with this much gleam ever is.
There are two Makeup Revolution Vivid Shimmer Bricks, Radiant and Rose Gold. Rose Gold would be better for darker skin tones than mine.
The best way I’ve found to use this is to take a large fluffy brush and highlight my cheeks. I can then use a smaller brush to bring attention to certain areas. The lighter shades work for me along my upper cheekbones.
The individual shades can be used as eyeshadows but I’d only do that in a pinch. A good eyeshadow primer is needed to make the shades adhere better since these are powdery. When I tried it I made sure that I tapped off excess in my sink so I wouldn’t have massive fallout. The colors are beautiful on.
Here’s some hints from Makeup Revolution on how to create a glowing, radiant skin:

If you are as fascinated by highlighters as I am, Makeup Revolution needs to be #1 on your list. For $7 you can look and feel radiant.
