Bellapierre Glowing Palette - Review & Swatches
The popularity of highlighters continues to grow, and more and more brands are bringing out whole palettes devoted to getting that instantly enviable glow. The green beauty world are often a little late to the party when it comes to makeup trends, but Bellapierre have absolutely nailed it with their beautiful Glowing Palette!

It was truly love at first sight when I spotted Bellapierre's Glowing Palette on LoveLula last month, and I'm pleased to say that it's even more stunning in real life.

Packaged in a sleek, gold coloured case that feels reassuringly weighty (despite being made from a thick but sturdy type of cardboard), the Glowing Palette is a nice and compact A6 size and features a mirror in the reverse lid. When you open it up, you're greeted by six large pans of mineral-based, pressed powder highlighters in an assortment of shades to suit a wide range of skin tones. The highlighters are held in place by a strong magnetic board, but can be easily removed and refilled if desired. 

The formula of these highlighters has really impressed me as they're incredibly buttery soft to the touch and are super easy to work with. The pigmentation and colour payoff isn't as immediately intense as mainstream brands like Becca or MAC, but these highlighters can be easily layered up to achieve a much stronger look if wanted (I've swatched them quite heavily below so you can see them at their most vibrant!) and I think they look so pretty when applied lightly for a more subtle finish.

That said, the Glowing Palette really lives up to its name as each of these highlighters offers a gorgeous glowy sheen to the skin, without being chunky or glittery, and I love the range of colours that Bellapierre have included.

The top row features Moonshine (a cool toned, almost icy looking pink with pale gold shimmer), Stellar (similar to Moonshine but it's got more of a rosy toned baby pink to it with cool metallic shimmer), Glimmer (a light bronze with gold shimmer), and the bottom row has Beam (a pale yellow with white and gold shimmer), Amorous (a peachy pink with much less shimmer than the other highlighters), and Glint (a warm toned coppery bronze with gold shimmer).

I've mostly been wearing the bronzey shades Glint and especially Glimmer recently, as they really suit my skin at the moment now that it's more tanned for Summer, and I also love Amorous as a glowy blusher shade too. The other three do look amazing though, especially for nights out when you want to feel more glam and dressed up.

I think this is a great cruelty-free palette and it's an excellent dupe for the popular Sun Dipped Glow Kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills (plus you get two extra pans of highlighter with this one, so it's better value for money!). If you're a glow-getter or a highlighter fiend, you need this in your life!
