Let’s take a break from the subscription boxes for a second and do a product review.
I purchased the Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter In “Golden Lights” back in July. You saw this if you follow my Instagram _beautytidbits_blog which I am really try to become more invested in. But, I am the worst at flat lays.
After trying that shade for awhile, I decided to order the other 2 shades of it that Ulta carries. I also want to note, they recently came out with a “Rose Gold” shade, but Ulta does not have it yet.
Highlighter is a crazy popular product, and finding a good one can get expensive. But, you don’t have to spend an up wards of $25 to get a good glow!
“Golden Lights”, “Radiant Lights”, and “Peach Lights”
Talk about coming through. As you can tell from the swatches, these guys have some great pigmentation. And, in case you were wondering, this does give you a BAM highlight on your face. Every shade!
The pans are in a hard plastic compact, with a domed lid. This is a baked product, so it is more raised than normal. It contains 7.5 grams of product.
My preferred way to apply this highlight, well all powdered highlights is with the ELF highlighting brush, sometimes a fan brush. KEEP IN MIND THIS DOES CONTAIN DIMETHICONE. I know some people do try to avoid this ingredient. All three shades apply easily and are easy to blend. They can also be used wet! I highlight my cheek bones, nose, cupid’s bow, and sometimes use the highlight to pop my inner corner and under my brow bone.
Wear/Over All Thoughts:
I have tried a ton of highlighters. Especially drugstore ones. The Makeup Revolution Baked Vivd’s are by far my favorite, and they are only $6 at Ulta! It is pigmented enough to give you that ever so popular in your face highlight, easy to blend, and crazy inexpensive. I wanted to compare these highlighters to a more expensive one, so you can really see why you don’t have to shell out a butt ton of money to look like a glowing goddess.
Here they are compared to The Balms Mary Lumanizer. I would even go as far as to say that “Golden Lights” is a dupe for Mary Lou! I would 100% say that this is a drugstore gem and well worth the $6 it costs.
