Hi there beauty lovers!
So I’m pretty much a sucker when it comes to highlighters and anything that gives your skin a glow. So I was very excited to review this one which is not only is super affordable, from one of my favourite brands it took me all of one minute to absolutely fall in love with it!
Now there have been whispers in the makeup world that this bad boy is a dupe for the hourglass ambient lighting powders and since I own one in the shade diffused light I can kind of see why people claim this. Texture wise the two feel very similar, they both feel quite the same when you swatch them, you know what I’m talking about that nice velvet like smoothness. They also have a very similar finish – non-glittery and definitely non-chalky. I hands down definitely like the makeup revolution one better though, let me tell you why! First of all the makeup revolution radiant lights highlighter is $9.92 which is a fraction of the price in comparison to hourglass. Secondly, it has a very noticeable gorgeous glow. On the glow scale I’d place it smack in the middle between hourglass and Mary loumanizer.
I’d really say that the only downside is that there are only 3 shades and no super duper light ones. This means there is a chance even the lightest shade (exhale) make give off a pigmented color on your cheekbones you may not want. Regardless of that I highly recommend this highlight you guys, it’s so freaking gorgeous that you can’t pass it up. I’m becoming vastly obsessed with this brand but I’ll leave my rambles on that for another post and keep this one short and sweet.
Have you guys tried this highlighter? Tell me a highlighter of yours that you absolutely love? See you in the next post and I hope you all have an awesome day! Cio. x
