Makeup Revolution: Radiant Light Illuminating Baked Powders

This isn’t going to be one of those reviews where you are left in suspense to the last word as to the opinion of the author.

I love these Radiant Light powders.

You may wish to stop reading now if you are a busy person.  There are, after all, always emails to read, clients to see and things to do, but, if you want to find out why I love these Radiant Light powders from Makeup Revolution then read on.

Makeup Revolution Radiant Lights – highlighting powders

Firstly, lets talk about the packaging.  The outer box is a really beautiful rose gold that is super reflective.  I only wear rose gold so this is a winner for me straight up.  The compacts themselves are very sturdy, black cases with a really good quality mirror.  I love the concentric circle design that is imprinted on these and the signature rose gold lettering on the front.  Unfortunately that lettering will rub off over time, but I have to say that these feel and look luxurious.

These Radiant Light powders are intended to be a dupe for the Hourglass Ambient lighting powders.  I don’t own the Hourglass powders to do a comparison for you, but from what I have seen online, they are a pretty close match.

These powders are very finely milled and easy to blend.  Because they are baked they don’t kick up a lot of powder when you dip your brush in, but they are really pigmented and soft.  They give a ‘lit from within’ kind of illumination rather than a more metallic shimmer.  I use these a lot during the day and for work because they are subtle while still being beautiful.

I have acquired these Radiant Light powders individually over the last 12 months.  I initially purchased Exhale as it was the lightest shade and I wanted to try one out.  I was so impressed that I purchased Breathe and then in a recent order I picked up Glow and I love them both too.  I actually use all three sometimes:

  • Breathe: very lightly all over the face as a finishing powder,
  • Glow: like I might use a bronzer to warm up the completion,
  • Exhale: more concentrated to the cheek bones and other areas traditionally highlighted.

You can buy these three compacts in a single palette which I think is a great idea and when the time comes to replace these powders I will purchase the compact for convenience.

If my entire collection of makeup was lost tomorrow these powders would be on my immediate list of things to repurchase which I think is a clear indication of how much I enjoy them.  If you want to have a look for yourself you can find these products on the Makeup Revolution website.

Have a fantastic day!!
