Revlon Skinlights Face Illuminator Lotion SPF 15 ‘Peach Light’ Review & Swatches

I have always been a big fan of highlighters. I have tried many brands and lucky me, all suited my skin well without making me look like a disco ball. I have oily, acne prone skin but yes with a healthy glow to it. A good highlighter helps in enhancing your features. I am always in search of something that gives a healthy and radiant look. I came across Revlon Skinlights Face Illuminator Lotion in 'Peach Light' and today I am going to share my experience with it.

Revlon Skinlights Face Illuminator Lotion comes in a sturdy pinkish beige colored pump tube with a silver colored pull off lid. On opening the lid, there is a white pump dispenser which makes the illuminator really easy to use. It allows you to control the amount of product without wasting. The pump tube is not squeezable and hence is safe to carry around in a makeup bag without any fear of leakage or spillage. The smell of the illuminator is mild and wont bother people with sensitive noses.

The texture of the illuminator is soft and smooth with a right consistency. It is neither very thick nor very runny. It can be used in a variety of ways. I use it as a highlighter after applying foundation. Apply it onto your cheekbones, collarbones, brow bones, bridge of the nose and cupid bows. It blends effortlessly without being patchy or blotchy. It makes my skin look more awake giving a healthy and radiant look. it contains very fine shimmers (you can say light reflecting particles!) that doesn't look OTT and give a natural and healthy look. I sometimes mix a pump of illuminator with my liquid foundation for an all over glow. It makes my skin look radiant and dewy. I usually use it this way when I have to attend a night function as I feel it makes my oily all the more shiny and oily during day time (especially in hot and humid weather!). I also mix it with moisturizer to get a natural and radiant look. if you have blemishes or pimples make sure to conceal them first as it provides sheer coverage. You can also wear it on its own for a natural glow but always remember less is more when it comes to illuminators or highlighters to avoid looking like a disco ball. The illuminator doesn't feel heavy or greasy on my oily skin. Although it has SPF 15, I always make sure to apply a good sunscreen before stepping out in the sun.

The staying power is pretty awesome. It stays put on my oily skin for a good 5-6 hours after that it starts fading evenly. if you have extremely oily skin make sure to apply powder lightly on top of it. it would last ages with me as only a tiny amount of illuminator is needed for each application. It doesn't cause any irritation to my sensitive skin. It is easy to remove using a good makeup remover.

'Peach light' is a peachy beige color with very fine light reflecting or radiance boosting particles. The particles are not OTT and are visible only when light reflects. It makes the skin look luminous and dewy but if you have enlarged pores then it would not be a good bet for you. It can be used at any time of the day for a natural and healthy look. I think it would suit fair to medium skin tones.

It gives my skin a natural, healthy and radiant look. peach light is a peachy beige color that matches my skin tone well. it contains radiance boosting particles which are noticeable only when light reflects on it. It doesn't look shiny or greasy but if you have extremely oily skin make sure to powder your T-zone well. I shall definitely recommend it to everyone.

  17. Hi Megha,
    Nice review! I have fair skin and especially my facial skin tends to look a bit pink since i also have very sensitive skin! I wanted to know which shade of Revlon Skinlights would suit me without making me look unnatural! :-)

    Thanks
