Makeup Revolution Rock on World Vivid Baked Bronzer Powder

Makeup Revolution Rock on World Vivid Baked Bronzer Powder
Makeup Revolution Rock on World Vivid Baked Bronzer Powder

Makeup Revolution Rock on World Vivid Baked Bronzer Powder ($6.00 for 0.45 oz.) is a dark copper with warm, reddish-brown undertones and a metallic sheen. Makeup Geek Firework (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Makeup Revolution Ready to Go (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Strip Bronzer (-, ) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Santos (LE, $8.00) is cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Avalon (LE, $8.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Glo Up (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). theBalm Betty-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Poolside (P, $8.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The formula is supposed to give “natural looking color” with buildable coverage that wears “all day.” It’s a baked powder, so the texture is drier and looser as a brush passes over the pan, but it doesn’t look dry, powdery, or dusty applied to my skin, which is normal-to-dry. Of the three shades in the range, this had the driest, loosest texture that was almost a little grainy (possibly due to the larger shimmer). It didn’t blend as easily as the other shades either, which was a disappointment. It does, eventually, diffuse enough to be acceptable with some extra effort. It had medium, buildable coverage with enough sheen that it did emphasize pores just slightly on my skin. I noticed fading occur after seven hours of wear.

The texture was smooth, lightly shimmered and did emphasize pores just a bit, but it remained blendable and diffused easily along the edges for a seamless look on the skin. It had medium, buildable coverage–in line with the description–that didn’t feel like I had to cake it on to get color payoff but does require a layer or two if you want truer-to-pan color. When I tested it, this shade wore well for seven hours.

The texture was fairly smooth, blendable, and easy to apply the skin with a gentle sweeping and buffing motions using a moderately-dense brush. This one looked more high-shine when buffed and worked into the skin than initially swatched, though the high-shine seemed to do more to reflect and smooth out the skin’s surface than amplify the size of pores and the like. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage. The color started to fade after six and a half hours of wear, which was really the only downside!

Charlotte Tilbury Seductive Beauty / Dolce Vita Instant Look Palette

Charlotte Tilbury Seductive Beauty Instant Look in a Palette
Charlotte Tilbury Seductive Beauty Instant Look in a Palette

Charlotte Tilbury Seductive Beauty Instant Look in a Palette ($75.00 for 0.77 oz.) is a neutral-hued eye and cheek palette that features three eyeshadows and four cheek/face products. I think if you have a good arsenal of neutrals, this will be dupable for you, but they are still a nice set of neutrals that work well together and would be travel-friendly. If you prefer more mattes or less shimmery eyeshadows, though, this one may be limiting. All in all, the palette was easy to use; there was no real fuss, and the more quality-related issue I had was how soft the bronzer was, but it looked great applied, which is where it counts the most.

It is currently listed as unavailable online, but some physical stores may still have stock (really not sure, you’d have to check with your local store!). I actually think that the brand’s Instant Look palettes would be excellent permanent items – I feel like they’re a good value, travel-friendly, and seem to be a good introduction to what the brand has to offer.

Seductive Beauty (Brighten) is a light peachy-beige with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had a really soft, finely-milled consistency that was a bit loose in the pan, but it applied well to the skin and had an almost “melted” appearance on (a sort of lived-in shimmer look) that was very reflective. The pigmentation was fully opaque, and the color wore well for eight hours before creasing. The Estee Edit Riff (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Becca Rose Quartz (LE, ) is cooler (95% similar). LORAC Mirage (LE, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). theBalm D2 (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Posey (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Jardins Eclatants #2 (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar).

The Estee Edit 1st Light (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Viseart Nuance #4 (P, ) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Champagne Bubble Bath (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Seductive Beauty (Enhance) is a medium-dark taupe-brown with subtle, warmer undertones and a frosted finish.

Divergent Abnegation Stone (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). Tarte Charged Up (LE, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Clarins Garden Escape #6 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar).

L'Oreal Quartz Fume (P, $5.99) is darker (80% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Seductive Beauty (Smoke) is a medium-dark bronzy brown with warm, reddish undertones and fine golden shimmer. The color payoff was rich and fully opaque, while the texture was perfectly balanced between soft and firm, dense and blendable–it was extremely easy to apply and blend out without losing intensity. On me, it wore well for eight hours. Chanel Promesse #3 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Dior Contraste Horizon #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery, warmer (95% similar). MAC Been There, Done That (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). Too Faced Power Couple (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Bronze (P, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Seductive Beauty (Bronze) is a medium, reddish tan with warm undertones and gold shimmer. The texture was very, very soft and prone to kicking up excess in the pan, and the looser consistency made it easy to get plenty of color payoff out of the powder as well. I’d recommend using a lighter hand and then applying, and if you feel like you may have gotten too much on your brush, lightly tap off the excess. It was very blendable on the skin and diffused nicely without a lot of work. I noticed subtle fading along the edges of the bronzer after eight hours of wear. Urban Decay Sesso (Bronzer) (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Laura Mercier Bronze (04) (P, $40.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

Hourglass Diffused Bronze Light (P, $50.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Makeup Revolution Golden Days (P, $6.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Glow With It (P, $33.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Seductive Beauty (Cheek Swish) is a light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and fine, golden shimmer that gave it a luminous sheen. It had medium, buildable pigmentation (which is as described) with a soft, silky consistency that wasn’t too firm or too soft in the pan. It lasted for just over seven and a half hours on me before fading. Clinique Melon Pop (P, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). Hourglass Incandescent Electra (P, $38.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Seductive Beauty (Cheek Pop) is a pop of light-medium, rosy coral with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque to opaque color coverage paired with a soft, lightly dusty consistency that blended out with ease and didn’t read dry or powdery on the skin. I was able to wear this shade for almost eight hours before it started to break down. Dior My Lady (003) (LE, $60.00) is cooler (95% similar). Guerlain Gold Palette #7 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Dior Precious Rocks (864) (LE, $45.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). NARS Make Believe (LE, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Seductive Beauty (Highlight) is a very light, golden peach with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that ran slightly dusty in the pan, but I didn’t notice any dryness on the skin. The highlighter wore well for eight hours on me.

The Matte Radiance Baked Powder formula is supposed to have “natural color with soft matte radiance” with “sheer, buildable coverage” that lasts “8 hours.” The powder had an incredibly smooth, soft, and finely-milled feel to it that blended out beautifully on the skin–it didn’t look dry or totally matte, but it had a nice, natural finish that looked like skin but better. It had semi-sheer to opaque coverage, and the blendable texture made it forgiving and easy to diffuse the coverage if over-applied. The color lasted eight and a half hours on me, which is a bit longer than described!

The Matte Radiance Baked Powder formula is supposed to have “natural color with soft matte radiance” with “sheer, buildable coverage” that lasts “8 hours.” It is more satiny than Bronze (01) and Bronze (02), and it has a stronger red undertone, but it isn’t too much darker overall. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable with a thinner consistency that kicked up very little excess powder in the pan. It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation that applied well to the skin and didn’t look dry or powdery, while it blended out well and became more natural-looking in finish after it was diffused. It lasted for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

There are four bronzer-liker shades in the range, and the first three are all fairly similar, while the last one is considerably darker.
