The £3 Highlighter You Need To Invest In
Makeup Revolution is one of my favourite drugstore makeup brands. They offer alternative dupe products to some of the most loved makeup products out there. They do great eyeshadow palettes and some amazing powder products. I decided to test out the much loved raved about highlighter.
It's the Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in Golden Lights. This is a really bright white highlighter with a slight hint of yellow to it. First things first with this is the pigmentation is crazy. I like to use a fair bit of highlighter to really give a good glow but you honestly don't need much of this to get a good glow.
I use an angled contour brush to apply my highlighter as for me this is the best way at achieving a symmetrical glow. I normally apply highlighter after I have done my contouring, just before I set my face as I get really worried that all the powders will cake up. I tend to set this with a slight bit of banana powder to make sure the effect really sticks.
I use a little bit of Mac setting spray to set my overall face and then I'm good to go. I tend to wear my makeup for about 8-10 hours a day depending on what I'm doing so I really put the makeup to the test. I have tested this with my Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation and the new L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation and this did well with both. After about 10 hours it started to go a little bit and break down but it wouldn't be too bad to just touch it up a bit.
I didn't expect myself to like the shade as I have been more into purple and blue toned highlighters but I actually really like this. Because it's quite harsh and bright I really like it. My makeup is never towards the natural side so it's nice to see brands really going for it with the bold colours.
This highlighter is only £3 which is insane for how pigmented and long wearing it is. They do have some other shades as well if you really wanna go out there. There is a purple shade that swatches perfectly and a rose gold type of shade as well that swatches so nice as well. And because you get so much product these are gonna last for ages so you won't be needing to replace them often.
Overall, I really love this highlighter. The colour really suits me and gives that strong glow that I am always looking for. If you have any highlighter recommendations for me or just any products from Makeup Revolution I would love to try them out!
Until next time, Chloe!
