I purchased one of the jelly highlighters in Prestigious from Revolution Beauty ‘Jewel Collection’ purely out of curiosity. I mean… its JELLY. What does that even mean?!?
Firstly, the packaging is lux: its a glass jar with a very sparkly rose gold lid. The texture of this product is very interesting. It is a very bouncy, thick mousse. It is a really unique texture and the only other product I have that is anything like it in my collection is the Jelly Much eye shadows from ColourPop cosmetics. Once you apply this highlighter to your skin it is thin, smooth and dries down completely.
I apply this with a duo fibre brush over bare skin or foundation but before any powder. I use powder sparingly and I find that this highlighter shines on through even when powdered but if I want something more the I will apply a powder highlighter over the top as well.
Now here is where we get to the important part – this is REALLY beautiful. It is just stunning on the skin. The formula really does melt into the skin and looks seamless. I wouldn’t suggest that this looks ‘natural’ as it is quite a wet, bright highlighter but it does look like skin rather than a streak of powder on the cheek. At 36 years old, my skin is aging and while I love highlighters, they can emphasise texture and wrinkles but I find that this is not the case with this jelly formula. Winning!
I live in a very hot and humid climate and during the summer months makeup literally melts off my face but this jelly highlighter sets and STAYS. At the end of the day my blush, bronzer and foundation may have faded but my highlighter is still shining bright.
I had zero expectations when I purchased this product. It seemed gimmicky and I expected it to be a bit of a fail but curiosity won out and I’m so glad I gave it a try. I genuinely love this. Prestigious is a pink tone which I love but Revolution also have a gold and white shade in the ‘Jewel Collection’ range and I think I will definitely pick up the gold version when I next make an order.
Have a wonderful day!
