I recently shared my thoughts with you on the first ever Sunkissed Bronzing product I tried, and that was the Glimmer Compact (read review here) I really love the Glimmer Compact and it's a bronzer I have been turning to a lot to give me a lovely sun kissed glow. Today I am going to be sharing with you another lovely Sunkissed Bronzing product and that is the Radiance Compact. The Radiance Compact has got to be one of the most perfect on-the-go compact I have come across. It has six eye-shadows, a bronzer and four lip colours. It's also smaller than the Glimmer Compact so would fit in your handbag perfectly!

The eye-shadow shades and bronzer are all shimmer shades, but not too much to be over powering. The shades are quite well pigmented, but the formula isn't amazing so you do need to build the shadows up. That said, you can create a variety of looks from these shades and I've found them really flattering particularly when going for a full sun kissed look! And they are so lovely for creating a natural smokey eye, too! The bronzer is, as I expected from trying the Glimmer Compact, absolutely lovely. It's so subtle yet flattering, I love it!

Products which come with lip colours like these, usually remind me of the crappy makeup you'd get as a kid. So when I first saw these came with four lip colours, my heart sunk a little bit. But then I tried them. I am actually quite impressed with them! They don't feel overly sticky; they are highly pigmented gloss shades with make your lips feel moisturised, with a colour that has great staying power. I particularly like the two coral golden shades and have been wearing them a lot! It's a bit messy having them in pan form like this put for a compact and on the go, these shades are perfect for finishing a look when out and about! This compact also comes with some makeup applicators, but as a Real Techniques obsessive, I haven't used those. Overall this is a lovely compact and will definitely be making it's way in to my travelling and Uni makeup bag!
