Makeup Revolution Vivid Shimmer Brick In Rose Gold Is An Awesome Highlighter For Dark Skin

makeup revolution vivid shimmer brick review rose gold

Although I’ve heard nothing but good things about the inexpensive Makeup Revolution brand, this Makeup Revolution Vivid Shimmer Brick in rose gold is my first product from this brand and I love it. It’s the perfect highlighter palette for dark skin. If you don’t have it, you need to get this ASAP!

I use it mainly as a highlighter but it can certainly be used as a bronzer depending on your skin tone and if you have lighter skin, you may prefer the Radiant version to this Rose Gold. It can also be used as eyeshadows or brow bone highlighters, etc.

Makeup Revolution Vivid Shimmer Brick Review (Rose Gold)


Makeup Revolution’s Vivid Shimmer Brick provides instant radiance to any complexion. Sweep across the brick for uniform application or use individual swipes for attention in certain areas.

It does contain parabens so if you have issues with using products that contain this ingredient (I don’t), you may want to steer clear.

Just gorgeous!


All I have to say is this Makeup Revolution Vivid Shimmer Brick in Rose Gold looks amazing on my skin. It’s not subtle but it’s also not too much either although you can certainly build it up to whatever you like. I especially love the three bottom shades and use them alone or combined together. Very pigmented also.

The shades are perfectly rich for my dark skin which is why I highly recommend this Makeup Revolution Vivid Shimmer brick in rose gold if you have dark skin. The glow is so beautiful. I can’t stop raving about it!

I use the top color to highlight my inner eye area (as well as the other colors) and at first I thought it would be too white/ashy but it actually looks great in that area. Would not use it alone on the rest of my face because it gives a bit of an ashy highlight on my dark skin and that look is not for me. I’m not one of those with dark skin walking around with Champagne Pop highlight! That’s  not for us.

Put down that Champagne Pop and get this shimmer brick instead. It will cost you less also. It has three or four great shades for dark skin which last for several hours. I can’t recommend this enough highlighter enough.

This shimmer brick has some kick off so be careful when using a brush so it doesn’t get everywhere but that’s the only negative that I have about it. This means that I very lightly tap my brush in the shimmer and apply. It blends beautifully.


Get this shimmer brick! You won’t regret it.
