Hello everyone!!! 🙂
Today's review is about the Sivanna Bronze & Highlight Palette in number 02. Sivanna is a Thai based makeup brand which I'm sure all of you must be familiar with. Their highlighters have always been a favorite of mine. Actually, not just their highlighters but their eyeshadows as well. Their products are super affordable with such amazing pigmentation, quality and even the lasting power is amazing. They also have countless dupes of high-end products. I've used their Shimmer Bricks in a couple of shades, their eyeshadow palettes & a blush palette as well and so far I have just nice things to say about all of them! So it was quite obvious when I saw this highlighter palette in a beauty store near my home that I had to snatch it up!
Price: Rs. 500
If you are on Instagram then I would highly suggest you buy sivanna products from a store called Charis enterprise. Charis enterprise is the authorized dealer of sivanna products and they are the one who sells on other shopping sites. So if you buy directly from them they may give you some discounts.
But if you are not on Instagram then Sivanna products are available on Amazon, Flipkart & in the selected Beauty Centers across India. But I would suggest you buy sivanna products
Demithicone, Magnesium aluminium silicate,Ethyllhexyl Isopalimitate, Methylparaben, Mica, Nylon-12, Phenoxyethanol, Polyethylene, terephthalate, Talc.
It comes in a black glossy palette with 4 pans of highlighters & bronzers. The palette has a transparent window on the top through which you can see the color. It doesn't come with a mirror. The palette is initially packed in a cardboard box. The packaging looks really nice & sleek. All in all, it’s a pretty & travel-friendly packaging.
Texture & color payoff of this highlighter is quite decent. It's not as crazy as their shimmer bricks. They're really in your face kind of highlighters. But this is more on the subtle side. I'm not saying it has bad pigmentation but it's just not that shimmery & in your face. I quite like it actually! The texture I felt is a little powdery as compared to their shimmer bricks.
This palette is in the shade 02. I think there are around 3 or 4 more shades in this range.
This palette has four highlighting & bronzing shades. The pan sizes are big enough to last a really long time. It is quite sturdy as well.
1. The first shade is a silver highlighter with silver flecks. This colour would really look good as a highlighter on people with fair skin tone. It would also look stunning as inner corner highlight.
2. This color is a light gold color ideal for highlighting! This would suit almost all the skin tones.
3. This shade is that proper golden highlight color perfect for any and every skin tone, especially the dusky Indian skin tones! This is my personal favourite from the palette. This works beautifully as an inner corner highlight too.
4. This shade is the darkest in this palette. I think it's supposed to be the bronzing shade but as you can see in the picture I don't understand how it can be?! It's literally a very light bronzy pink! It can work as a bronzer for very fair skin tones only. But it works beautifully as a blusher for me!
Or what you can do is mix any two or three shades of your choice and apply for a personal touch. My favorite combination is the 2nd & 3rd shade together for the high points of my face. And then I use the 4th shade as a blush. The 4th shade looks beautiful as a blush! The 1st shade I use as my inner corner highlight in my Eye makeup.
My Experience With The Sivanna Bronze & Highlight Palette:
Sivanna products as I said to have amazing texture and pigmentation. This too is not disappointing in any way whatsoever. The lasting power is great as well. This has lasted on me for around six hours! Even after that is just faded a little. The color payoff and finish of this highlighter are beautiful. I tend to get scared of going overboard with my highlighters every single time. But with this one I can work to get the kind of effect I want. It gives a light and beautiful finish in one swipe. With two swipes you're going to give those flashbulbs a competition girl! 😀
Things I Like About Sivanna Bronze & Highlight Palette
I like their Sleek & travel-friendly packaging.
They’re quite Affordable.
The color payoff of this highlighter is quite decent.
The Staying power is really good.
Things I Don't Like About Sivanna Bronze & Highlight Palette:
Availability of Sivanna products can be an issue if you are not on Instagram
It claims to be a bronzer as well but none of the shades in this palette can be used as bronzers.
If you're looking for a palette that has bronzers as well as highlighters, you should skip this one. But if you want a good highlighter palette, definitely go for this as this is a steal at this price.
