Review: Makeup Revolution Highlighters and Strobing Powders
Hey, there lovely dazzlers! If you haven’t noticed recently I have been on a Makeup Revolution kick! I can’t stop trying out the different products that they offer! I’ve was impressed with the quality and pigmentation of their shadow palettes and the strobing balm palette.
Today we are taking a look at some of the baked and strobe highlighters. They cost about $6 each and occasionally go on sale at Ulta. I purchased these when they were on sale for buy two get one free.
Vivid Baked Highlighters
Peach Lights is a natural looking highlight that you can wear every day without looking like you’re going to hit up the club. This is the least pigmented of the four that I purchased but it still gives you a nice glow. It’s my least favorite of the four because I feel like it doesn’t really show up very well on my skin tone. I’m thinking it would look great on someone with a fairer skin tone. Personally, I like a little bit more drama in my highlighter! I think I will end up using this during the work week and for days I am going for a more natural look.
Here is a picture from my St. Patty’s Day post and I am actually wearing Peach Lights on my cheek bone and inner corners of my eyes.
Rosegold Lights is very pigmented and shimmery shade of pink. I had to purchase this one because I found it quite unusual for a highlighter to come in such a pigmented rosy color. This highlighter does have much more impact when applied and looks really pretty on the inner corners of your eyes. I don’t know if I’m completely sold on rosy pink highlighter. I feel like it’s more of a shimmery blush than anything else. Regardless, it is still a very beautiful shade and I may just end up wearing it as a blush than an actual highlighter.
Gold Addict has to be my favorite of all the highlighters I purchased.The pigment is amazing and it is quite shimmery. I am in love with the way that it shows up on my skin and it photographs quite lovely. It is going to look amazing in the summertime with a tan and some bronzy eyeshadow to top it off. This one makes me feel like a glowy goddess! I am predicting that this is going to be my go-to highlighter in the summertime and for special occasions.
Holographic Lights is not nearly as intense as Gold Addict but it still will give you a lovely glow. It is actually a bit similar to the Ultra Strobe Palette in that it has a pretty iridescent/holographic appearance to it. It will give you more of a glowy unicorn look rather than glowy golden summertime goddess. I would wear this on a night out as the camera does pick up the shimmer quite nicely but I also wouldn’t be afraid to wear it during the day.
In the picture below I have the rosegold highlighter on the left side of my face and the gold strobing powder on the right side. I also put a bit on the inner corners of my eyes.
