Revolution Liquid Highlighter - Liquid Starlight | Review.


Hey everyone and welcome to today’s post where I will be reviewing the Revolution Liquid Highlighter in Liquid Starlight. I have been wanting to try these out for so long as they’re supposed to be good dupes for the Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops & the Iconic Liquid Illuminators, which I’ve also been wanting to try but couldn’t justify paying that much for them. The revolution ones have always just seemed so right as they’re really well priced at £6 and they look like liquid gold😍. Revolution has been my favourite drugstore brand for soo long now, so I’m excited to see how this product works.

This highlighter can be used either all over the face almost like a primer, on the high points of your face or you can mix it with your foundation to give it a little bit of a glow. On first impressions I could see that this is super pigmented and opaque, however it is really easy to blend out and even if you use the tiniest amount it can still have a big impact and add the glow to the skin. I dotted the highlight in to my Cupid’s bow, cheek bones and the tip of my nose and then blended it out with my Makeup Sponge as I felt this was the best way for it to sink seamlessly into the skin. I used this as a base for the powder highlight I used, which was the Revolution one in Peach Lights and that helped the highlight to POP.


The shade Liquid Starlight has a pinky iridescent tone to it, which is perfect for us pale gals and guys and it also is a very close match to the Revolution Peach Lights Powder Highlight so these work really well together. As you can see from the swatch above it is very pigmented ... obviously I did use a lot of product for the swatch but you don't need to use hardly any to get a full on glow ... which also means that the bottle will last a while. The only other liquid highlights that I have tried are the Benefit High Beam & Shy Beam and I think the Revolution ones are a cut about the rest as I found the benefit ones would stick to the place you applied it and wouldn't blend very easily in my opinion. I would probably use this highlighter for more of a glam look, not everyday, however this may be right up someones street for an everyday glow!! I can’t wait to use this on days when I go for a no foundation look or on my body throughout the summer and on holiday and the glow will be evverythinggg (!!!)

I absolutely lovveee the packaging of these highlighters as they match the colours of the highlight, they're quite minimal but so aesthetically pleasing haha! They come in 7 different shades, from gold to rose gold to pink to silver etc. so you are pretty much guaranteed to find one that suits your skin tone or one you'll love. You can take a look at or pick up one of these highlighters here!

My overall opinion on the Revolution liquid highlighters are that they’re really well priced, they’re very versatile, very pigmented and I really recommend them, especially if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to the Cover FX and the Iconic ones.
