Review for: Unicorn Elixir (blue/violet iridescent pearl) more...
This product is absolutely beautiful. When you put one dot on your hand, it swatches out wonderfully. It's name is perfect for the product. I think it's wonderful for festivals, concerts or somewhere that you want a little more flare because it is definitely not a natural look highlight. The price is amazing for how much product you get and I think it's very similar to the cover FX drops.
However, there are some cons. I keep trying to love liquid highlight but I often find that it seperates my foundation. If anyone has any secrets on how to apply this properly, PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP. Also I tried to mix this with my primer and omfg it did not look good. I wanted a little glow but it did not do anything for my skin. Maybe it was the color. Maybe it was my primer. Maybe it was the highlight. I'm not sure but it was no good. So keep that in mind when buying this.
BUT it is beautiful and a wonderful price for you to try it.

Review for: Starlight (cool pink shimmer) more...
This highlighter is Amazing! The color and shimmer is stunning! But it clumps alittle.. I used some and after 5 hours it gets a little clumpy looking (only up close). If you are going out for a few hours or to the club, it's probably not noticeable.. but I don't recommend for everyday use, maybe special occasion going out for a couple hours! i like this product now but it took a few tries- it definitely needs to be worn under foundation because it will take off the product if you put it on top. i didn't mind it mixed it with my foundation but it did get a little oily. also, you need to work in sections as it dries down very fast and becomes hard to blend. overall a very pretty highlight but you need to work with it.

I have the Champagne shade! Ok I LOVE THIS STUFF. My face is dry so sometimes powder highlight can look really powdery on me so I have to spray it down. Patting this shade on the highpoint of my face looks flawless over a dewy foundation. It doesn't break down, which is nice. I think if you have really oily skin it works well as a use underneath a powder highlight for extra glow and stop any breakdown of the product. I want to try other shades now! The Champagne color is very nice but its like an ice gold, it would compliment fair to medium skin tones, I am right in the middle. I want to try a more golden shade. Very inexpensive, I got mine at Ulta $9.99 or so. 10/10 recommend.

Wowzers!! These liquid highlighter are sooo cool. I first fell in love with Cover FX highlighter drops but realized I couldn’t justify spending 42$ on a highlighter I wouldn’t use all the time. But then I was venturing in Ulta and found these from makeup revolution. I purchased ‘Unicorn Elixir’ which is a great dupe for CFX ‘Halo.’ It’s a super pretty iridescent blue/violet with hints of pink as well. And for only $9! Can’t beat that ;) Would definitely recommend!MAKEUP REVOLUTION Liquid Highlighter

Oh my god I love this stuff! 🦄 I got the unicorn shade! It is the most beautiful pink and blue iridescent sparkle you have ever seen. And it’s super cheap! I’ve seen other companies with items like this and it’s much more expensive. You can also blend it out to a sheer glittery finish. You won’t regret buying this!

My overall opinion of this is that it is a very good drug store dupe for the Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops for a fraction of the cost! I have the champagne shade which is a beautiful rose gold tone and the pigmentation is fantastic. A little bit goes a LONG way! If you aren’t used to using a liquid highlight like this, I recommend dropping a drop or two on the back of your hand or on a palette and using a damp sponge or brush and using that to apply to your face - but be careful, the product does dry VERY quickly, so you want to be timely working with it. The wear time of this is extremely long wearing, especially if you set it with another highlight product or a translucent powder on top.

And oh yeah - if you aren’t a fan of a blinding highlight, this product is totally not for you! This highlight literally makes you look like you stole beams on sunshine and threw them on your face. It is a gorgeous highlight that isn’t glittery but is totally radiant.

The thing that is keeping this from being a 5 star product for me is the smell. It honestly smells like I’m applying nail polish to my face which worries me a hair, but since using this, I haven’t noticed any irritations or acne come up so that’s why I’ve continued to use it. If you can get past the smell, this is a great dupe for a high end product.

Review for: Champagne (golden beige) more...
Let me start this review by saying...this is an amazing brand. If you like a certain a product from a high end brand, odds are, there is a dupe from
Makeup Revolution that is great. Their products are at a great cost.

However, this product was extremely disappointing. I didn’t find that this gave me the look I was aiming for. The highlight was not very visible, but it did leave an odd gray film on top of my makeup. If you’ve used a highlighter before that wasn’t he best, you know what I’m talking about.

All of that to say...great brand with great products....just not THIS product.

Some people say this is a dupe for the COVER FX CUSTOM ENHANCER DROPS but I say it is not. This formula has a ton of chunky glitter and it doesn’t give any time to blend it into the skin. It’s almost fully set as soon as it touches your skin, so going over it with a brush or sponge doesn’t do anything to help blend. Because of this, it does last a long time, but if it doesn’t look good from the start then wear time doesn’t matter. I ended up returning it. The shades are pretty and if you shake it well, it doesn’t seem as glittery, but I still don’t like it.

Review for: Champagne (golden beige), Luminous Gold (sandy gold) more...
I really enjoy these liquid highlighaters. They can be blinding or sheered out for a more natural glow. I have dry skin and they work great for me. They have a few different shades with different undertones. I do recommend but keep in mind that champagne and the sandy gold shade look extremely similar and I don’t think you need both. I don’t know if it’s like this with any of the other shades because I only bought the two. But when I swatched both I wish I would have just gotten the one because of how similar they are in color and undertone. That’s the only reason I took away a star because I feel like they could have easily done a different shade oppose to making two that are far to close to one another. On the brightside, they’re very affordable and Ulta often has the brand on sale either buy 1 get one 50% off or buy one get one I forget which one it is exactly!

I want to start this off by saying that Makeup Revolution has NEVER disappointed me. I first tried this brand's eye shadow palettes ( Makeup Revolution Mermaids Forever  and  Makeup Revolution Affirmation 32 Piece Eyeshadow Palette ) and many more. These products always go above and beyond what you would expect for the price you pay (palettes are usually $15) That being said, when my local Ulta redid the Makeup Revolution display and had all these new products, I was shook. These highlighters are amazing quality, blend very well, and work just as good as a high end highlighter for a fraction of the cost. I would recommend these to EVERYONE!!  Makeup Revolution is truly a brand that is working it's way up in the world, and from their lip kits to their blushes and eye shadows, they have nailed it!

I'm really into highlighters right now but only tried powders. Is this stuff good? Are drops hard to use?

How would you apply this product because when I try to blend it in, my foundation starts to come off underneath and I don’t know what I’m going wrong.
