When Makeup Revolution launched their new Revolution Pro range it was a little overwhelming as they launched over 200 new products in one go. I wasn’t entirely sure which products to try first as I’d not seen any reviews but Makeup Revolution have always done an amazing job when it comes to highlighters so I knew I needed to try a Revolution Pro highlighter. The Revolution Pro Supreme Highlighters are palettes of three powder highlighter shades, and there are three different shades to choose from; Ice, Metals and Gold and they’re just £6 each. I chose the Revolution Pro Ice Supreme Highlighter as I have very pale skin and I really enjoy the Revolution Ice Kiss Skin Kiss Highlighter.
The Revolution Pro Ice Supreme Highlighter contains three duochrome highlighter powders which are 3.7 grams each within a plastic palette with a clear lid. There’s no mirror which is a little disappointing as the majority of their highlighter palettes have mirrors but none of the Supreme Highlighters have mirrors. The Metals version of the palette is the one I’ve seen the most on social media but I knew the shades would be too dark for me, and Gold contains shades for deeper skintones but all three palettes are beautiful and I really like the rippled design on each of the powders.
“A brand new formula of intense pressed pigment, Revolution PRO Supreme Highlighters create incredible glow for all skin tones. A trio of soft and buttery shimmer waves, each shade can be used alone or swirled together to give skin a dimensional sheen. Ice features three white shimmers in a stunning blue, champagne and pink shift.”
All three shades within the Revolution Pro Ice Supreme Highlighter have a duochrome effect to them and aren’t shades I’d personally wear on my face. I’ve lusted after the Kat Von D Alchemist Palette ever since it launched but it contains four tiny duochrome shades which I knew I wouldn’t get a lot of use out of, so I couldn’t warrant the purchase.
This Ice Palette is such a good budget alternative as you get three very similar shades of the four shades you get in the Alchemist palette; Amethyst, Emerald and Opal. The first shade is a lilac shade with a blue shift, the middle shade is a pale yellow with a green shift whereas the third shade is a light pink with purple/blue shift. All three shades are stunning and are unlike anything else I’ve seen from the drugstore but I just can’t pull off such unique coloured highlighters like these.
I prefer to use them as eyeshadow toppers to transform any colour eyeshadow, and the formula is ridiculously soft so you have to be very careful or it can become quite crumbly within the pan so I’ve been simply using my fingertip to lightly press them onto my eyeshadow. My favourite shade would have to be the lilac/blue shade as it’s so unique and it looks amazing when layered over champagne or pale golds.
If you dampen your brush prior to application it makes the duochrome shifts even more dramatic and they really are beautiful shades. I hope Revolution Pro decides to bring out a paler version of Metals as there isn’t a palette which caters for lighter skintones which doesn’t contains funky duochrome highlighters.
I’d love to know if you’d wear these shades as highlighters?
