Makeup Revolution: Vivid Baked Highlighter

This is the last instalment of my series reviewing the products in Makeup Revolution’s ‘Vivid Baked’ range.  You can read my reviews on the Vivid Baked Blushes and Vivid Baked Bronzers on earlier posts on my blog, but today I am going to be looking at the gorgeous Vivid Baked Highlighters.

There are three highlighters in this range and I own them all.  You can buy these as individual compacts as I have, or Makeup Revolution also sells them together in their Highlight Powder Palette.

Pink Lights

Pink Lights is a very pigmented, super brightening highlighter that is soft to the touch.  It is a pink toned, silvery highlighter and is definitely cool toned.  This is the kind of highlighter that you will see from space if you get a bit heavy handed, but with a soft, fluffy brush and a light hand this is stunning.

Golden Lights

Golden Lights is again, very pigmented, super brightening and soft to the touch.  This has a warm gold shimmer with a white-gold base and I imagine that this would be stunning on women with darker skin tones or a solid tan.  On days where I am a bit ‘bronzer happy’, this looks lovely!  Plus, I have seen comparison swatches online and Golden Lights is an excellent dupe for NARS’ Albatross.  I don’t own Albatross to do a comparison for your but if you want to see a side-by-side swatch, Zabrena from Youtube did a great drugstore dupes video featuring both products here.

Peach Lights

Peach Lights seems to have a slightly different formula to the other two highlighters in this range.  It isn’t quite as soft, nor is it quite as pigmented.  Saying that, I love the subtle glow of this highlighter for everyday wear.  The base tone is peachy, but this highlighter has a pink flash to it that makes it seem almost more pink in colour when worn on the skin, than Pink Lights!

When you compare the three Vivid Baked Highlighters side by side, you can see that the three offer a nice range of colours, as well as levels of pigmentation.

I find that these three highlighters wear really well and blend nicely giving lots of illumination to the face and a glow that lasts all day.  I have owned these highlighters for 12 months now and I use them quite regularly and as you can see I have barely made a dent!  You certainly get a lot of product for your money.

I paid GBP3 for each compact which is about AU$6 each and I think that is a great price for a top quality highlighter that is cruelty-free.

If you would like to try the Vivid Baked Highlighters, or any of the Vivid Baked products you can find them on the Makeup Revolution website.  They do ship internationally for a set shipping fee – so it doesn’t matter how much you order you are only going to pay a set price.  Therefore, I recommend that you put together a bit of wish list first before placing your order to make the most of the shipping cost 🙂

Have a wonderful day!
