Of course, I’m back with another Makeup Revolution review! Superdrug* currently have an offer that involves spending £12 to get yourself one of these palettes and that wasn’t an issue given that I’m always looking for an excuse to buy more of their products. I’ll be reviewing some of the other bits that I bought soon, so keep your eyes peeled for those!
So, this palette usually retails at £8.00 (which I think is incredible value given that three highlighters are included) and it comes inside a beautiful rose gold lidded case and if you know me, you’ll know I’m a sucker for anything that looks like this! Also, any bloggers out there, how blooming difficult is it to get a photo of something (from above) that is reflective or mirror-like?! It took me a solid ten minutes to get a shot without my little potato head creeping in.
The palette contains three highlighting powders, all different shades (one for every occasion) and the pans are super generously sized! I love the ripple effect on the highlighters too as it definitely makes it look like a luxury product. Recently, I’ve started branching out from my usual caramel toned highlighters and I’ve been using some more pinky-toned ones as well as the good old iridescent kind so I knew I would use all three of these! As you can see, this palette contains all three and I’ve managed to use them all too.
First up is the bright white shade, which is absolutely stunning! I used to be so scared to use these shades because I thought they were too intense but this one is just so pearly and beautiful I can’t resist! It also has a pale-green shift to it which really does make my cheek bones pop. Secondly, there’s a gorgeous gold/cream highlighter which is right up my street. I tend to go for these champagne shades the most as they seem to compliment my skintone more than others do. This shade adds a subtle glow and gold shimmer to the cheeks without being too blinding. They’re also perfect for warm, summery makeup looks too, so I’ll definitely be using this one over the next few months! Finally we have a pinkhighlighter. It adds the prettiest glow to the cheeks without being too over the top and it definitely makes me look so much healthier and energised.
The white highlighter is definitely the most pigmented, whereas the other two are slightly more subtle and they blend out to be quite sheer. That being said, all of the highlighters are buildable so you can adjust them to whatever intensity that you’re going for.
In conclusion, this palette is definitely worth the money. It contains 3 strobe highlighters, in a rose gold case with a HUGE mirror – what more could you want? All three of the products are super easy to use, you simply have to sweep your brush over the pans and apply it to any areas that you want to highlight for a beautiful glow! There are definitely more pigmented highlighters out there but that’s not necessarily what I always want to use, so this palete is perfect for my everyday makeup looks. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that loves highlighters but doesn’t want to glow like a lightbulb on a daily basis! I hope you enjoyed this review, do let me know if you’ve tried this palette or if you have any recommendations for me to try out!
