Exposed Cosmetics Bold Definition Highlight Kit | Review and Swatches

Here’s my second review of an Exposed Cosmetics product and this one is a beauty! As you saw from my previous post, I am absolutely in love with the Exposed Cosmetics English Rose Eyeshadow palette, read that here. So I was expecting good things form this highlight kit too!

As with the eyeshadow palette, this kit comes in simple cardboard packaging which has a little window in it so you can see the shades inside. It’s a cute little size, making it great for on the go. On the back of the box is an image of a woman showing you where to apply highlighter to your face. Now let’s get to the swatches!

Eeek, aren’t they all just so beautiful? The colours are – Pale Champagne, Iridescent Rose and Glistening Bronze. The shades have a gorgeous sheen to them and are super shimmery – minus the glitter. They have that much coveted ‘wet look’ on the skin. My most wearable shade, for my skin tone, is definitely Pale Champagne but the amazing thing about this palette is that you can mix the shades together to create your own custom highlight. They’re just stunning! They would make beautiful eyeshadows too.

This Bold Definition Highlight Kit is just £4.99 and available to purchase here.

Exposed Cosmetics English Rose Palette | Review and Swatches 

I came across Exposed Cosmetics on Instagram and instantly fell in love with their English Rose Eyeshadow Palette. I had seen a few mini video tutorials on their grid and was amazed at how well the shadows blended and how pigmented they were. I just had to give them a go for myself! I was able to pick this up super cheap too because it was Black Friday weekend – win!

There are 18 eyeshadows in this palette, which is incredible value for money considering it is only £9.99. There are eight shimmer, metallic and foil shades, each one absolutely stunning and very, very pigmented.

The mattes in this palette also pack a real punch. They are buttery and easy to blend. The colours compliment each other beautifully too, so many unique eye looks can be created from this one palette.

I really had lots of fun playing around with this palette. I absolutely love rose gold anyway, so eyeshadows around this theme really interest me. I’m obsessed with the pink shimmer shade with the peachy gold reflect and just had to use it all over the lid!

There are some mattes in the palette which make perfect transition shades and crease colours too. I’m really happy with this purchase and can’t believe the quality of the shadows considering the price – absolutely fantastic. The packaging is lightweight and simple, which is a good thing. This palette is simple to look at, but the eyeshadows do brilliant job. There was less time spent on packaging and more time spent on quality of the product – something which really appeals to me.
