Makeup Revolution Highlighter Review & Swatches
Makeup Revolution Vivid Shimmer Highlighter – Rose Gold
Today I’ll be reviewing the Makeup Revolution highlighter. Makeup Revolution as a brand is known for their affordable and good quality eye shadow palettes. They have a really wide range of eye shadow palettes and I have used one of theirs already which I was impressed with. They have a wide range of highlighters, strobing powders etc. I will be reviewing this highlighter from their ‘Vivid Shimmer’ range. They have 3 brick shades in this range: ‘Radiant’, ‘Rose gold’ and ‘Pink kisses’. I have the shade Rose gold and let’s see how their highlighter fared for me.
Product Claims: Get that perfect sun kissed glow with the brilliant Makeup Revolution Vivid Shimmer Brick highlighter. The Vivid Shimmer Brick from Makeup revolution is a beautiful offering combining the warmth from a blusher and bronzer with a highlighter to give a gorgeous definition and healthy bronzy glow to your skin. Either use each shade from the shimmer brick on its own, or swirl your brush round to pick up all the colors. Nevertheless, You will be left with a stunning look that brightens your face and your skin looks lit-from-within!
- Fine glitter particles that give an illuminating glow
- Easily blendable texture
- Darker shades can also be used as a bronzer
- Available in gorgeous shades that suit all skin tones
Price: INR 600 but I got it online for INR 480
Package Description: This comes in a brick form with a plastic cover and several rosy gold shades. The cover is quite sturdy and this packaging is very similar to the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick.
My experience with the product: I was searching for a good highlighter for the festive season and stumbled upon this one on Nykaa and wanted to try it out. Adding to this, Nykaa had a good discount on this highlighter so I instantly picked this up giving no second thoughts. I picked the brick in ‘Rose gold’ as I really loved the shade selection of this brick: warm and festive.
As mentioned above, the packaging looks a lot like the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick and the shades seem pretty similar too. These shades have a good colour payoff and show up really well on the skin except for the first beige shade with golden shimmer, this particular shade looks slightly patchy and needs considerable blending. The pricing is affordable in my opinion for a highlighter with the discount (not sure if there’s still a discount). These are quite blendable on the skin and I absolutely adore the shade selection because all of them are suitable for Indian skin and give a really nice warm glow!
This highlighter can also be used in a myriad of ways; as an eye shadow or also as a blush for a warm, bronzed look which is a real value for money. The only downside of this highlighter is it’s not very long lasting. The glow lasts for about 4 hours post which it doesn’t really show up as well as they should.
