Sivanna Colors Highlighter 05 Review

Sivanna Colors Highlighter : Peach

Peach Highlighter

See it through my Eyes

After being obsessed with shade 04 so much I couldn’t stop myself and grabbed this one Mosking I didn’t want to do injustice to these darlings to feature them in a single post, they are worth separate mentions. 

As many of you must already know these are the dupes to Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick and Revlon Highlighting Palette. The price is less than half and efficacy is similar.


This comes in a black paper cardboard box which has a cut out square window which shows the sneak peek of the product Wink the box is made of glossy black plastic with a transparent plastic window on the lid which shows the colors inside the box. The lid shuts with a click lock mechanism, which is a savior to store and travel. The shade number is mentioned at the bottom of the pack. All in a very good packaging.


The highlighter is in a powder cake form. They are soft and smooth to touch and pick up the brush easily. I use the blush brush to apply it generously on the cheek bones and nose and it blends so well with the blush or equally beautiful when used alone. The shimmer is so finely milled that it makes the glow look real and surreal.  It doesn’t have any smell until you try hard and sniff it on bringing close to the nose Blum 3

Color Pay Off

The pigmentation is to die for. All the colors in the brick are beautifully pigmented without any grittiness or patchiness. The lightest colors in the palette are pigmented beautifully for the right amount of highlight required. 


The highlight, the glow and shine is bang on. It doesn’t make the skin looks too much or shouting for attention. It sums up the perfect party look or even the daily look.  The versatility of this product is outstanding as I also use it as an eye shadow at times. The colors in each pan are great to apply alone or mixed and matched together.

Staying Power

It stays for about 10+ hours in winters without any fading. In summers its slightly lesser as I have combination skin, it fades a bit. But nevertheless the wear time is quite good and unexpected being a highlighter.

 Best Affordable Highlighter : Sivanna Colors Highlighter

Sivanna Colors Highlighter 05 Swatches


Palette 05- This palette belongs to the Orange Peach family. All the shades are with peach undertones and blended with some color or the other. It has 5 shades from the top-  

Shade 1- Silver Peach Duo Chrome- This shade when used alone gives glow from within. The color pay off is sheer and highlight factor is high.  

Shade 2- Pink Peach- This color is a beautiful mix of pink and peach. It has a champagne reflex and pairs up well on the a peach blush.

Shade 3- Peach Gold- yet another peach color of this peach palette but with gold reflex. 

Shade 4- Peach- this is a pure peach color which is pigmented. This can act as a great eye shadow as it is high on pigmentation.

Shade 5- Mixed Peach- this is mix of all colors, pink peach, gold.

How I use it

I use it over the blush to bring out the color with a luminous glow from within look. if layered it gives a great look for the party, but not the glow from within kinda look. It can be used alone too to bring the glow. I also use it on my collar bone at times i like the subtle bling baby Biggrin

Not only that, the colors are great t be used as a eye shadow too. The bronze palette makes an ideal choice for eye makeup needs. 

It doesn’t end here, on those lazy days it works equally well a blusher cum highlighter as it has colors with shimmer.

This palette is best wore on a peach blush on fair to medium skin tone. This palette will wash out darker complexions I feel.
