Makeup Revolution Highlight Palette | Review & Swatches

By now if you don't know that eyeshadow palettes and highlighters are my thing then where have you been?

As soon as I seen this on the Makeup Revolution Instagram I knew I had to have it, even before swatching it. So when my boyfriend took me into Superdrug and got me to pick out some bits for christmas I went straight over and handed him this. 

(please excuse the indent in the last shade- sobbing rn)

Firstly, this palette is £10 and you get 8 different shades! That alone I think is pretty amazing, wether your highlighter draw is full or you've never dared to wear it I really think this will be for everyone.

As for the packaging this is sturdy but basic, most of my MUR stuff does break a lot but saying that I use it allllll the time so I can't expect it not too! This however doesn't feel as flimsy as some of my other products which is a bonus as highlighters are a bit more delicate. 

This also doesn't have a mirror but I'm not complaining, if a palette includes a full face worth of products then I like it to have a mirror just incase I want to just take that with me however with this I don't feel like a mirror is needed. 

What I like about this palette is how many varied and different shades there is. Wether its a gold, pink or bronze highlighter you love then this palette is for you. 

I feel like both of the rows have the same shades but the bottom row is more in your face and popping if you know what I mean! The highlighters are so smooth and buttery too and honestly for a drugstore product their amazing. They are also quite finely milled too and don't have huge chunks of glitter in them either which I love!  

Top Row.

The first shade is a white/ baby pink shade which is very light in pigmentation so looks really nice if your just wanting something simple and not too in your face. 

The second shade is probably my favourite- this one is hella pigmented (the swatches are rubbish!) I use the one below it as a blush topper then go over with this on a more detailed brush. 

If you like anything gold such as MAC Soft and Gentle or Laura Geller Guilded Honey then the third shade is the shade for you!

The final shade in this row is gorgeous too, if the one previous isn't as dark of a gold as you wanted then this is an intensified version.

Bottom Row.

The first shade is a very very bright white/ golden yellow shade which is incredibly intense.

The second shade I use as a blush topper, its a stunning pinky coral with gold shimmer running throughout. 

The third shade is like The Balm Mary Lou mixed with copper and is something quite different and unique.

Finally the last shade, and the damaged one is a beautiful coppery bronze. Unfortunately this is too dark for my skin tone so I use this as a shaddow! 

What do you think, would this be something you would pick up?
