I’m a big fan of Makeup Revolution and their bargainous yet amazing products. The first product I tried from the new brand was their Golden Lights Vivid Baked Highlighter (reviewed here), which I fell head over heels for. There are three different shades of the Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighters; Golden Lights, Pink Lights and Peach Lights. Peach Lights £3* is the most recent addition to my collection and is yet again, absolutely beautiful. Golden Lights was very subtle, and quite cool in tone for being ‘golden’ so I expected Peach Lights to be slightly warmer in tone.. however, it’s very much the same as Golden Lights and very subtly tinted making it ideal for many skintones.
The circular, plastic compact contains an impressive 7.5g of product which is protected by a clear domed lid. The pan of powder is patterned with an oyster like design which very much reminds me of the MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinishes.
The powder does feel quite rough due to the design of the pan, however it is incredibly silky and smooth once swatched or applied to the skin. Peach Lights is only very slightly tinted compared to Golden Lights, and once applied to my cheekbones, the peachy tone isn’t particularly visible which I’m actually very relieved about as I do prefer more cooler toned highlighters. The main visible difference for me, between Golden Lights and Peach Lights is that the latter is much more metallic so a lighter hand is needed (unless you like metallic robot-esque cheekbones of course).
Just like Golden Lights, Peach Lights is really soft and not at all gritty and doesn’t contain any chunky glitter particles which I love. I particularly like applying the Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighters with a fan brush across my cheekbones and browbones as it helps to create such a natural yet stunning glow.
Due to Peach Lights being more metallic, I’d prefer to keep it for special occasions or when I want to look a little more dressed up and put together.. and use the subtler Golden Lights for an everyday glow. I just can’t fathom how they can make such beautiful, good quality highlighters for just £3, they’re just so pretty.
