Hey there Lovelies!
Makeup Revolution have been doing the rounds here in the blogging world so of course i had to place a cheeky order, or two! With a huge product line and bargain prices they were bound to catch us beauty lovers attention. They have a real extensive line of products and a lot of "dupes" of higher end products so I'll have quite a few more exciting MUR reviews coming up here on the blog!
As with a fair amount of their products their Vivid Baked Highlighter really reminds me of the much loved pink MUA Highlighter offering, but MUR have no affiliation with the brand. This particular product comes in three shades, Peach Lights (as pictured, but my shoddy lighting has washed the product pics out quite significantly), Pink Lights and Golden Lights.
Baked highlighters are some of my favourite products to use and my Mac Mineralized Skinfishes are some of my most reached for products in my collection, so i was eager to pick up a cheaper alternative. It contains a rather generous 7.5g of product and is housed in pretty sturdy plastic packaging. Texture wise the powder is quite stiff but easily picked up onto a brush (i like to use the Real Techniques Contour Brush to apply it) and blends out quite nicely.
Finish wise it has quite a metallic sheen to it, making it a no go for me for day time use unless used with a real light hand. The peach doesn't really translate on the skin either just leaving more of a sheer champagne glow which I've quite enjoyed for more dramatic, evening looks. All you glitter haters can breathe a sigh of relief that this contains no chunky glitter either, and on me it doesn't tend to accentuate my pores.
For a bargain brand this is a really decent highlighter, just not for daytime wear for me personally. It costs a mere £3 and contains a lot of product for the price point which is always a plus. If you enjoy MUA's Pink Highligher offering then I'm sure you'll love the Makeup Revolution ones, now have a couple more shades to play with. My Mineralized Skinfishes still hold my heart on the highlighter front but for a budget brand this gets a thumbs up from me!
Makeup Revolution are due to launch in selected Superdrug stores but in the meantime you can check out their range on the website here.
