Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighter - Review and Swatches

Hello, Darlings!

I actually can't believe that have started a youtube channel, I know it sounds silly but it has boosted my confidence so much since starting it. I thought why not give a little demo to show you this product while I'm at it. 

Makeup Revolution is a London based makeup company that sell a variety of amazing budget products including eyeshadow palettes, concealer and so much more. The company is cruelty-free and many of the products are gluten-free and vegan-friendly.

 I have never tried liquid highlighters before only ones that are powered pressed into pans so trying this was something totally new for me. I have seen so many high-end liquid highlighters but the price of some of them made me gasp with disbelief so finding a budget-friendly option was very welcome for me.

So what did I choose?

They are 7 different shimmery shades to choose from and boy did I have a hard time which one to choose so I just chose at random and bought 'Unicorn Elixir'. The formula for these is cruelty-free, vegan and gluten-free.

Ingredients list.
sododecane, calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Caprylyl Dimethicone Ethoxy Glucoside, Polybutene, Hydrogenated Styrene/Isoprene Copolymer, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Mica, Propylparaben, BHT May Contain [+/- CI 77891]

So 'Unicorn Elixir' is a magical shimmer and reflective and iridescent lilac. I was super impressed with the formula of this because it's so darn thick and very pigmented. You don't need much product for a gorgeous shimmery glow. You can use this as a highlighter or you could mix it with your foundation for a dewy glow. I would even say you could use it on your body for a sparkly look. 

The packaging is very simple and reminds me of a lot of serum bottles as it has a droplet applicator. I love the packaging as its got a lovely shine to it and to me has some luxury product vibes to it. They are a choice of 7 other highlights which are called as follows

 As you can see by the swatch below which is only one large drop of the product is that you don't need much to get a gorgeous pigmented shimmer.  I suggest putting a small amount of product on the back of your hand ( one or two drops ) and apply the highlighter to places desired with your makeup brushes of choice. I love using Collection contour brush and my Primark buffing brush with this liquid highlighter.

How much is the highlighter?
Well, I was surprised that it only cost £6 which is a good price for a product that works so well and it so pigmented.

Where can I buy it?
It is available on the makeup revolution website here and also in Superdrug stores.

 My thoughts
I love this highlighter and I have definitely been won over by using a liquid highlighter. I would even say that this is a multi-use product as you can use it as a highlighter, mix with foundation for a luminous dewy glow or even use on your body for a sparkly shimmer; what's not to love?

I like to use this on my cheekbones, cupids bow and to highlight my nose too. I think its a very long-lasting product and works really well the urban decay all nighter makeup setting spray for the long-lasting finish; especially if you're going to a party.

I can't reiterate enough that a little bit of this product goes a long way, its like magic how well this product works with even a drop, you could even say its magical. It can be a little tricky to use at first but as I said above put it on your hand first and apply with makeup brush of choice to the area desired.

Even though I love this product a lot I am not keen on the smell of it but it works so well that I am not bothered by that at all.

Check out my youtube video of me trying on makeup revolutions liquid highlighter in Unicron elixir which a switch too. Would appreciate a subscribe too 💜
