Now that I showed you W7 The Cheeky Trio palette, I will now show you Rimmel sculpting & highlighting kit in Coral Glow, designed by Kate Moss I was sent for review.
Very similar concept of a face palette that includes a highlighter, a bronzer and a blush but Rimmel squeezes them into a palm-sized plastic compact instead of a long metal palette.
Similar claims too – long lasting colours that blend seamlessly for a radiant healthy glow. I do find that to be true, don’t have any problem blending the colours out and then they don’t look overdone.
The brand does not offer “one colour theme fits all” but 3 colour options for this palette, more accommodating than W7 🙂
Another difference is the finish. It might not very visible in the picture but the highlighter and blush in this palette are slightly shimmery, not matte.
A face chart is included in the back of the palette to give you a rough idea of product/ colour placement, if you are new to these products.
Appropriately named, Coral Glow has a beautiful peachy toned blush that would work for any skin tone darker than very fair. The highlighter shade is ok. I appreciate a bit of a sheen instead of complete matte but it is not strong enough to my liking.
The bronzer would suit a lighter to medium skin tone on the shy side, can work as a light bronzer but not contour colour for me. Golden Bronze would probably be a better fit for me, colour wise. Lighter skin tones probably go for Golden Sands.
I do recommend this kit for travelling, when you find the colour option that works for you. The palette is 0.65oz/ 18.5g, $9.98 at Walmart vs. 0.74oz/ 21g, $9.99 with W7 The Cheeky Trio palette.
