Revlon Makes Me Blush: Revlon Cream Blush and Highlighting Palette Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: Products featured were provided for review.
For Valentine's Day, Revlon Canada sent out some personalized goodies including two new additions to their cheek boutique for us beauty bloggers to sample, the Revlon Cream Blush and the Revlon Highlighting Palette. I received the "Adventure Junkie" selection, filled with gorgeous orange and coral hues. To read more about the products and my review and swatches, click......

Everything was so bright and cheery, check out that awesome card!
Revlon Cream Blush in "Coral Blush"
Revlon Cream Blush in "Coral Reef" ($11.95):
A super lightweight cream blush, "Coral Reef" looks crazy bright in the jar but when swatched it gives the most natural flush of coral (see swatches below). The formula is very smooth, non tacky, and buildable, I simply tap some on my cheeks with my fingertips and viola, instant glow!
This new line comes with three other colors and I think quality wise it is comparable to Stila's Convertible Colors and I personally like the formula of this better because it isn't as thick and sticky.

Revlon Highlighting Palette in "Bronze Glow" ($12.95):
This highlighting compact contains five strips of colors of various shades of coral, bronze, and iridescent champagne. When swirled together it gives a shimmery light bronze and on my skin color it looks more like a neutral blush.
The formulation of this is really great, very smooth and pigmented. The shimmer is not overpowering and gives a nice natural luminosity.

Wearing the blush and highlighter on the cheeks and the Revlon Lacquer Balm in "Tease" on the lips (reviewed here).
Here I am wearing both the blush and the highlighter. As you can see the two together gives a very natural flush but both products are buildable if you desire a more intense look.

My fellow Canadian Beauty Bloggers CBB members Megan and Heather also did a look with their personalized Revlon products, check out their post below if you are interested!
