Revolution Highlight Reloaded Review + Swatches

Thursday 16 May 2019

Revolution recently released some newly packaged highlighters and at just £3.00 each, you can bet your bottom dollar I snatched them up. There are six shades available, and here I have the four which most suit my skin tone - fair to light. 
They come in pretty standard packaging although I do like the peach and rose gold colouring of it and the powders themselves are intensely pigmented, which I have usually found with Revolution's highlighter formulas. 

The four shades I have starts with Set The Tone, which is a creamy white diamond highlighter which reminds me a little of the Fenty Beauty Diamond Bomb Highlighter. Although it gives that diamond effect, in the light you can see minuscule micro-glitter in colours of baby pink and light green. This is the fairest shade of them all.
Each of the highlighters themselves do have a rippled effect, not too different from the Laura Mercier highlighters, but we know Revolution aren't always the most original brand. For you gold lovers, Raise The Bar is the one for you. It has a couple of tones within it, including a lighter pale yellow and then a warmer gold shade, which are obviously swirled together to give a pretty light gold which is similar to Charlotte Tilbury's Gold Bar.

I personally love a light pink highlighter as I find it suits my skin tone really well and so the first of two pink shades I have is Dare To Divulge. This is the fairer of the two pinks, and has a slight peachy tone to it, which is perfect for me, which I also think works really well as a shimmery eye shadow as the formula is so silky soft it is perfect for such a delicate area.
The final highlighter I have is the Make An Impact shade. This is a multi-tonal highlighter and you get a pink tone straightaway but there is a more peachy/golden iridescent running through it. This would suit me more in the Summer months when I have a bit of a tan, so I would say this shade would be great for more medium to darker skin tones.

As mentioned, the Revolution Highlight Reloaded Highlighters cost £3.00 each, and I managed to get them on offer at Superdrug at the time when they were on 3 for 2, so keep an eye out for deals like that. You can find them online at Revolution Beauty.

All the Loves,
