In Detail Makeup Revolution Pro Illuminate Highlighter Review, Swatches and My Experience
So the first thing that comes to our notice when we see a product is its packaging. The pro Illuminate comes in a sturdy hard black case plastic packaging with an attached transparent hard plastic top. This allows you to see the product inside without opening it. The packaging has a click shut mechanism keeping the product secure and travel-friendly. The product inside is a cool toned gold colour with diamond cut detailing which makes it look quite a luxe product. It is indeed a big pan since its 15g and you get the feeling that it is worth the money you paid for. Overall the packaging is quite sturdy and it depends on person to person about it being travel-friendly since it is a big pan but personally I do feel it is.
The texture of this highlighter is very smooth and buttery to touch and also gives a smooth application. It does not accentuate the texture on your skin and is not glittery or chunky. There are very finely milled shimmer in this product but does not look shimmery or feel chunky to the touch. It glides on very smoothly on your face and does not require multiple application unless you want to build up the intensity.
There is only one universal shade in this range of makeup revolution highlighter. Although there is a lack of shade selection, this one shade will fairly suit all skin tones. This would look good on Fair to medium and duskier skin tones. But would not recommend it for even deeper skin tones as it is a cool toned gold hence, it would look lighter on them. It is equally appropriate to wear on a daily basis during the day and can be built up to an intensity appropriate for night time and also for special occasions.
The pigmentation of this product is commendable. One good swipe of the brush into the pan is enough to give a nice glow to your cheekbones. But nevertheless, you can build up the glow factor with multiple swipes and it still won’t look chalky on the skin. The application looks much more blinding with some Mac fix plus or any other mist. If you could give a dab with a sponge on top of it then it would give a more natural dewy look. Even though there are very finely milled shimmer in it, it does not have any fallout over your face. Also, this won’t budge/transfer.
The highlighter stays very well for a good 6-7 hours on my face without budging. It stays put even when I am outdoors for the whole day. The pigment pay off of the product and its staying power at the end of the day are quite impressive.
I have tested this product more than 20-25 times by now and can gladly accept that I am happy with this purchase. It does a great job in giving that everyday subtle glow to your skin and also that party glow for the nights and festive occasions. This shade was something I have been searching for since I had lighter variants before and I didn’t want a pure gold highlight, hence this was the perfect in-between shade.
I have never liked those highlighters which give you that glittery effect once put on your face or would look like a stripe of shimmer on your face because within a few hours your whole face looks glittery. In fact, I have always preferred highlighters which give the illusion of a dewy look and gives that glow which makes your skin look healthy. I can definitely say that the makeup revolution pro illuminate one is a good example which won’t burn your pocket and at the same time would suffice the need of a good illuminator.

Cons of Makeup Revolution Pro Illuminate Highlighter

Highly Recommend this drugstore highlight. At the price, this highlighter is a steal. Please look no further. If you love highlighter with pearl gold sheen and finely milled shimmers with high staying power, whooping quantity and great price, your search ends here. You can never finish this highlighter and hit the pan, it has 15 grams of product. I am 100 % sure, it will expire before that. Go run and grab it.
