Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter

Today, I'm gonna just wax lyrical for a bit about the Revolution Baked Vivid Highlighter in the shade Peach Lights. It's a very shimmery, beautiful highlight with a neutral pigmentation to it, not too pink, not too golden, which is perfect for my fellow Pale Princesses out there!

I picked this up a fortnight or so ago in my local pharmacy, for €3.95. Yep, you see where that decimal point is? It's in the right place, friend!

I admit that at first I was a bit deflated by it because I thought it wasn't that great. That's until I got the top layer off the product. Basically I swirled a "fluffy" brush over it for a couple of minutes, til I wore the baked top off it. Until I did this, there was no product on the bristles of my brush, there was no highlight on my cheekbones,and  a bad time was had.

Now that I've got this issue resolved, let me just sing from the mountain tops how unbelievably incredible this highlight is! It's so shimmery, when you apply it you suddenly become a sculpted, gloriously lit supermodel. How can one little pan of iridescent powder be so magical? I apply it with a tapered Blank Canvas F15 brush, and honestly, it's my favorite part of my makeup routine!

With change from a fiver, I have to tell you, even though you have to work to get the product to show it's full potential, it's so worth it! I am completely in love, it's such a bargain and it makes you look radiant, sculpted and incredible.

You can find Revolution HERE and I apologize in advance for your bank account hating the two of us...
