Last month, I introduced Makeup Revolution on this blog. It’s a European brand that recently landed in London Drugs and Ulta. The brand specialize in affordable palettes with very pigmented and trendy colors and are often dupes of higher end brands! Today’s review will be for the Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter. I’ve been reaching for this a lot recently and it is now a favorite of mine!
On the outside, the packaging is not very impressive. It has a clear plastic top with a black plastic bottom. This is in line with the packaging of Makeup Revolution products. The size of this is bigger than your average blush. Once you open up the lid, the product is so beautiful! The product has a spiral embossing and also a 3D effect. It really reminds me of the MAC extra dimension skinfinishes.
In the pan, the product is quite white and has a hint of yellow undertone to it. However, once applied, the goldeness shows through more! The best part is when you blend it out. You really see the golden sheen come through and reflect in the light. It almost has a duochrome look to it where it is more white/yellow and then it turns golden when your skin hits the light! It’s so flattering and great for prolonging a summer tan!
The weird part is that we usually equate smooth and creamy as synonyms for great products. When I swatch this with my fingers, the powder honestly feels dry and chalky. However, when I apply it to my cheeks, it looks absolutely flawless. It stays on for at least 8 hours on my cheeks and continues to give that brilliant reflective duochrome look.
