Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter – Golden Lights

Today I’m talking highlighters, specifically the “Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter” in the colour “Golden lights”. Now I’m going to preface this review by saying that I’ve never used a highlighter prior to this, but I’d seen plenty of YouTube makeup tutorials where people have on different highlighters and it looks fantastic. I had to give it a go myself!

I had no idea what kind of highlighter I was going to get when I picked this.. well, actually, that’s not entirely true.. the highlighter I wanted to get was way too expensive for me to consider for my first one.. in fact, I was shocked at how expensive it was. So, I decided that to begin with I’d choose a more budget friendly one. At the time of writing this review it costs £5.45 on Amazon, which is more reasonable than the price of the other one I saw (by a long shot!)

I’d heard that using a fan brush was the best way to apply this stuff, but for me, I found that using my finger gave a much better look.. it was more concentrated and less dispersed. My fan brush is pretty huge though, so maybe that has something to do with it! I was a little bit worried when I received it as the colour looked darker than I thought and as an extremely pale person I was worried that it’d look more in your face and less subtle on me. Luckily, that wasn’t the case! It actually gives a nice shimmer over the top of my foundation once it’s rubbed in a bit.

How it looks on my skin here is how it looks before it’s rubbed in properly. I tried to rub it in but it’s hard to pick up on camera without hitting certain lights, which is difficult to achieve by myself. It glides on easily, has a nice shimmer and isn’t too cakey. There are other “colours” you can choose from too, which I stupidly didn’t know until after I bought this one.. but there’s also “Peach lights” and “Pink lights”.

I think I will definitely be adding this to my usual makeup routine, just to give a nice shimmery glow and make my makeup less flat and give me a bit of extra colour. If you want to give it a try yourself, you can buy it through Amazon by clicking the picture below. I take the effort out of searching for you! I know how irritating it is when a product is mentioned but you have no idea how to find it.

Is this something you’d try yourself? Do you use a highlighter? Have any recommendations for me to try? Let me know!
