Highlighters could well have been my most purchased product of 2014. At first I was a bit intimidated by them but after realising how they can make my dry skin look glowing and radiant I jumped fully on board and proceeded to get my hands on as many different formulas as possible.
One of the most recent additions to my make up cabinet is budget brand Make Up Revolution/I Heart Make Up’s Goddess of Love Baked Highlighter. I fell in love with this as soon as I saw the product pictures on the brand’s Twitter feed and added it to my wishlist straight away. Lucky old me, I unwrapped it on my birthday and proceeded to test it out at the earliest available opportunity. Now I’ve had the chance to try it out a few times I thought I’d share my thoughts.
First up, the design of this product is gorgeous. This baked highlighter comes in a heart-shaped box and, while this isn’t great for travelling, it certainly grabs my attention when I open my make up drawers to pick out my products for the day. Also, it’s huuuge! Even if I used this daily I doubt I’d ever get through it – the whopping size makes the tiny price tag of £4.99 even more impressive.
It’s a gold, champagne colour that looks subtle and beautiful when applied to the cheekbones, centre of the nose and cupid’s bow. The fine particles mean it’s suitable to wear during the day, as you don’t have chunks of glitter on your face (which I’ve seen before in budget highlighters – not pretty!) and it also doesn’t cling to my pores – PRAISE BE.
So you can see how it looks on the skin, here’s an action shot:
If you fancy picking this one up for yourself (and if you’re in the market for a budget highlighter then I really think you should) it’s available for £4.99 from the Make Up Revolution website or select Superdrug stores.
