Makeup Revolution Highlighter Palette | Review





Makeup Revolution Highlighter Palette "Highlight" £8 - It always makes me laugh when I walk into any drug store, primark or anything of that sort and see something for slightly more expensive then their usual line, I don't think I'm alone in having a mini gasp of "gosh that's expensive" before coming back down to earth and realising that actually, compared to most brands I normally buy, it's still a ruddy good deal! This is one of Makeup Revolution's pricier items but it's still absolutely fantastic value when you compare it to it's £50+ dupe, the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette. I grabbed this in a 3 for 2 in my local superdrug as this is one of Make Up Revolution's product that I've actually had my eye on for a while but never been able to source. I'm really getting into my highlight now and taking time with the smaller touches with my makeup to make a big difference to the whole effect and this offers a fantastic range of colours depending on which type of "glow" you want. I tend to use "golden lights" for the inner corner of my eye or sweeping under my brow bone to give that touch of highlight and brighten up my eye area, if I'm going for a warmer look on my cheeks and have gone heavy with the bronzer then I'll use "peach lights" over my cheek bones and across the top of my brow bone to keep the warmer, bronzed look whilst adding my highlight to look really sun kissed. However when I'm paler and wanting a perhaps more everyday look then I'll turn to "Pink Lights" to boost my natural glow and simply add a bit of "oomph" to my look without changing it too drastically. The sleek black packaging looks as though it's far more high end and luxe than it actually is, which isn't let down by the quality of the product. There's no annoying glitter and as long as you use a light hand and don't go too overboard, there's none of that fake sheen that some less expensive highlighters can sometimes give. All three colours add a subtle yet effective "something" to my look and with these three shades, there's one for every single day. The only downside to having all three in a palette like this is that it's not the easiest to transport around if you know for definite what kind of look you're going to be after as, naturally, it is rather large. However now I'm (almost) firmly rooted into one spot in my new home it's found a lovely place in my new dressing table. Considering I was admittedly one of the sceptics when Makeup Revolution first launched, they're fast becoming a brand that I can't stop buying more of and are taking over my makeup collection rather rapidly! What else do I need to try?!
