Makeup Revolution has become my absolute favorite brand now. Amidst getting my hands on the newly launched eyeshadow palettes, this I HEART MAKEUP BLUSHING HEARTS BRONZER – HOT SUMMER OF LOVE Baked Bronzer was for ever on my wish list. So I made best use of Nykaa sale and I got this Triple Baked Bronzer, which is an exact dupe for the Too Faced Sweethearts Baked Blushes and Highlighters.
- Triple Baked Obsession! – by the lovely people in the I Heart Makeup factory – made in a 3D Heart shape!
- Highlighter – Pure Light, to capture everyone’s Heart!
- Vegan, Cruelty Free & Gluten Free
PRICE : INR 1050/- (way too pricey for a £4.99 priced product) I got it for around INR 800/- at a sale on Nykaa.
Packaging looks like an exact dupe for the Too Faced Sweetheart blushes. The Hot Summer Of Love, triple baked bronzer comes in a heart-shaped cardboard box, with a plastic kind of pan inside. The packaging is quite strong and sturdy for carrying it around and travelling purposes. However, I wish it was a metal casing and the packaging could have been a bomb. Nevertheless, for a £4.99 triple baked bronzer, I cannot expect more. The gold box with purpley-pink fonts going on on it gives a luxurious look to the product.
Hot Summer Of Love is a highlighter-bronzer trio – it comes with two lighter shades for highlighting and a darker shade which is a shimmery bronzey shade, all this when used individually. But when you swirl the brush around the whole product, you get a beautiful warm rose gold highlight shade, which absolutely complements every skin tone. And also these can be used as eyeshadows, they give great output as shadows.
The baked powders are very smooth and buttery to the touch and feel, and they blend very easily into the skin. The first shade is kind of powdery and hasn’t got much of shimmers in it. It’ll be an issue only if you use the shades individually, where in if you pick up the first shade or a combo of first two shades, you end up in applying a powdery/chalky highlighter on your cheekbones. Whereas, the rest two shades have that bomb glow in them. They don’t have any harsh chunks of glittery particles to worry about, while application. The powders are finely milled and baked. When used over a spritz of setting spray, you’re gonna glow like the goddess! Also, they’ve got great pigmentation which can be build-able too. And their staying power is also decent, although I don’t really care for how long I wore them.
Oh, if I forgot to mention – this baked bronzer is tad bit messy while it comes to picking up the product from the pan, it does have a lot of fallout. I did experience the same with few other of my baked highlighters as well, so I’m assuming this might be one of the properties of any baked blush/highlighter/bronzer out there.
Overall, I’d definitely recommend this I HEART MAKEUP BLUSHING HEARTS BRONZER – HOT SUMMER OF LOVE Baked Bronzer to all my highlighter loving babes to try out. This would definitely last you all your life. But if you’re someone on a budget and wouldn’t want to spend a lot on a drugstore bronzer/highlighter, then there’re much more other options out for you. But you don’t wanna miss such great products when they come on sale as I did.
