Revlon Skinlights Face Illuminator Lotion SPF 15 Review and Swatches

Review By Swati
Hello Beauties,
Once upon a time, there was a girl who thanked her one and only fairness cream that had the super marvelous power to give her that super bright, instantly glowing skin!!! that is all that she wanted. As the days passed on,that girl become more curious about makeup and started doing experiments. Later on, as she grew her choices was different, but then her wish was always the same, that is to get perfectly bright and glowing skin. Now after all her experiments she is again thanking one of the products that gave her what she wishes for,WONDER what? Undoubtedly that is this REVLON SKINLIGHTS ILLUMINATOR. 

And this is my first post on Indian Beauty Zone, writing it for an awesome and humble lady,Radha who makes me think if she could be my own sister. I’m too excited at the same time humble to join you.

My Experience with Revlon Skinlights Face  Illuminator Lotion SPF 15 – Peach Light:
The best part about this product is its packaging. It comes in an oh - so – hygienic pump type packaging, which is totally welcome for its quick and fuss free thing, when you are in a hurry. It comes in a plastic cylindrical pump, which is very sturdy and also travel friendly. The cap shuts tightly hence no product spillage during travel.

“PEACH LIGHT” is a beige color with peach undertones. Sorry sorry I’m extremely bad at describing shades ( :P). It contains finely milled golden shimmers(not shimmers actually) to give skin an instant radiance. It is nothing too artificial or made up. SPF 15 - added bonus!

Texture and Styaing Power:
The texture of this illuminator is smooth without any gritty glitter particles. It is not too runny or thick, but in between which makes it extremely easy to use. The most important thing is that, the shimmers present in this illuminator is not over the top. It contains very very fine shimmers. Hence it gives a natural glowing healthy skin, without being artificial or made up. 
This face illuminator can be used it many ways. I mix it up with my tinted moisturizer or foundation to get a overall glowy effect. I also use it on my cheekbones, bridge of nose,forehead,cupid’s bow. What I do is, apply 3-4 dots of this illuminator and blend it well. It blends easily with the base. You can either use your fingers or a stippling brush.
I have normal-combination skin, and it stays put for a decent of 7-8hrs, but makes my nose look shiny. I think it is better to use  a compact/loose powder on top of it to make it look less oily. It doesn’t feel heavy or greasy on top of the skin. It looks natural and makes skin look radiant. Just a little bit of it is enough, so it will last you for a long time.

Pros Revlon Skinlights Face  Illuminator Lotion SPF 15 – Peach Light:
  •  Easy peasy tube packaging- fuss free totally
  • Smooth texture
  • Blending is so easy
  • Contains finely milled shimmers-not OTT
  • SPF 15 and oil free.
  • Makes skin naturally glowing
  • Doesn't feel heavy or greasy
  • Stays for a long time and can be used at anytime
  • Dry or oily skin- it will suit you
  • Only a little quantity is required, so probably will last for a long time
Cons of Revlon Skinlights Face  Illuminator Lotion SPF 15 – Peach Light:
  • Expensive !!!
  • The main problem- it may settle into pores if you have enlarged pores.
  • Not available easily, I have seen it only in few online stores.

Final Verdict:
Revlon Skinlights Face Illuminator Lotion with SPF 15 is a versatile product that can be used as a highlighter on cheekbones, bridge of the nose, cupid’s bow etc, and also can be mixed up with matte foundation to get an overall radiant glow. It comes in a pump type packaging which is very convenient to use. It gives skin a natural radiant glow, and the shimmers present doesn't look artificial or over the top. I think the shade will suit Indian complexions. It doesn't make skin oily or greasy. It is very easy to blend. Overall, I would definitely recommend this product to everyone.
