I was looking for a finishing powder which won’t make my skin look dry & gives a soft sunkissed glow. After considering many in the list I halted at Revlon counter & tried this, the next moment I knew that I had to get this.
It comes in a square case packaging with a transparent lid & the actual product being in the form of dome shaped baked powder placed in the centre of the case with bronze brown veining on it. The entire look is very pretty & reminds of a planet in the solar system. There’s no mirror or applicator provided which is a bit disappointing as with the packaging size a mirror would have been really an advantage for the travel & on the go touch ups. Applicators provided with products are mostly of no use, so doesn’t matter for me.
Formula wise, despite of hard baked form the powder is very soft & satiny smooth. It easily gets loaded in the brush & you do need to *poof* or tap the brush to get rid of the excess amount. It does contain shimmer which are very finely milled & hardly seen or felt on skin. In fact after application it gives a nice subtle sheen with a golden glow on skin without a hint of shimmer.
Pigmentation is somewhere between moderate to high. It doesn’t load your face or cheeks with excess colour in a single go but can be built up & very ideal for beginners. The powder gives a soft sunkissed glow on cheeks & on the entire face. I prefer to use this with very very light hands all over the face for that subtle sheen & bronzy look. It does not deprive skin of colour even when used with very light hands.
Wear time is pretty impressive & it stays intact on my cheeks for around 7-8 hours with slight fading. On face I do need to retouch after 3-4 hours as I apply it very softly just like barely touching the bristles on my face kind of!
Shade Sunkiss Radieux:
It’s a Bronze mineral powder with bronzy brown vein detailing & having slight orange undertones, with very finely milled shimmer to it which gives a nice subtle sheen to the skin.This is a multi-use product complimenting all skin tones & can be used as a blush/highlighter for dusky skin tones/bronzer for fair tones/overall face powder. I mostly love to use this all over my face, for the purpose I bought it & sometimes as a highlighter.
And this is how it looks when swiped all over face very slightly!

A baked mineral powder which is soft & satiny smooth in texture & gives a perfect sunkissed bronze look! The warm toned bronzy brown shade with orange undertones compliments all skin tones & can be used as a blush, highlighter, bronzer or all over finishing powder. It adds natural warmth to skin. With buildable pigmentation & long wear time makes it ideal for beginners. Comes with a heavy price tag but the quality & quantity does justify the price. Highly Recommended!
