Rimmel London Kate Sculpting and Highlighting Palettes Swatches & Review

Affiliated Links|PR Sample

Hey loves, it has been way too long since I have done a post, and I do apologize about that! Pregnancy life has been really getting to me lately. Mainly with decluttering the whole house and just getting the baby room ready! Only four more months to go! While I was going through my makeup I found these Rimmel London Kate Sculpting and Highlighting palettes that I completely forgot about. They were sent to me a while ago and I totally forgot I had them. So I finally wanted to get up a review and swatches of these because they are seriously stunning and such a great find in the drug store. 

These palettes come in three different shades. Golden Sands which is the lightest palette, Coral Glow which is more for medium skin tones and then Golden Bronze which is the darkest of the three. After playing around with these I found Coral Glow to be my favorite. All of the highlight shades are very similar so there really isn't that big of a different between those. With the bronzers you can clearly see a different. Golden Sands has a light warm tone bronze, Coral Glow has a beautiful cool tone bronzer and Golden Bronze has a very deep bronzer. My favorite bronzer of the three is from the Coral Glow palette. I do have very fair skin, but I do wear a lot of cool tones. I feel like cool tones work best with my skin. For the blushes, Golden Bronze has a cool tone light pink, Coral Glow has a beautiful coral peach blush and then Golden Bronze has a beautiful peachy pink with golden undertones (reminds me so much of Orgasm by NARS). 

I noticed they all had the same texture when it came to the highlight and the bronzer, but with the blushes it was slightly different. The blush in the Golden Bronze palette was very chunky and had some fall out. But I did find all the shades to be very pigmented. I also noticed that the bronzer in the Golden Bronze palette did apply patchy, so because of that and the fall out with the blush, that is my least favorite palette. If I had to recommend one of the palettes for you to try it would for sure be the Coral Glow palette. I think this palette will be a hit for the Spring time.

Each palette retails for $6.99 and can be found at www.ulta.com

NEW Physicians Formula Bronze Booster Highlight + Contour Palette Matte Sculpting

Hi loves, I am so excited about today's post! Physicians Formula recently came out with some new products for 2016 and the moment I saw this new bronze and highlight palette, I knew I had to get it. This is the Bronze Booster Highlight + Contour in Matte Sculpting. They have two different palettes, but this matte one was  calling my name. Sadly no where near me has these in stock yet so I did order this one from www.ulta.com and they currently have buy one get one 50% off Physicians Formula! So if this is something that interests you, I would totally order it while the sale is going on! 

This palette comes with a warm tone bronzer, a cool toned contour shade and a light banana highlight shade. The main reason I wanted to get this palette was because of the contour shade. Since I have such fair skin, I thought the contour shade would be perfect! And it really is. I thought the texture of all three were very buttery. The shades are very build-able and blend out very easily as well. One thing I didn't like about this palette is that the packaging is very bulky. It does come with a brush underneath just like a lot of Physicians Formula products do. I never use the brushes that come with their products, so to me it's just more of a wasted space. 

I also love that this palette is completely matte. I am not big on shimmer on my face so this palette is literally perfect for me. I am not sure how well this will work on more deeper skin tones since the shades are pretty light. But if you have lighter skin or even medium skin tone, I think you would love this palette!

It does retail for $14.99 and like I said, all Physicians Formula products are currently Buy One Get One 50% at www.ulta.com
