Revolution launched the Revolution Pro Lustre Highlighter collection back in April, but I didn’t purchase one of the highlighters straight away as I wanted to see reviews first. The brand shared swatches of the highlighters, but they were very heavy, chunky and intense, so you couldn’t see what they’d look like once blended onto the skin.
Revolution Pro Lustre Highlighter
“These glowing highlighters are encased in a stunning gold glittery mirror compact, which has been sealed to ensure no snagging or damage. Open the case to uncover the stunning highlighter, set in a luxury flower/ rose design.“
The Revolution Pro Lustre Highlighter is packaged within beautiful packaging. With a golden metallic square compact, with a gold glitter lid but the glitter is covered in plastic so there’s zero fallout when using it which is great. Glittery packaging is nice and all, but loose glitter is a nightmare for makeup packaging.
The Revolution Pro Lustre Highlighter is visually stunning, with a raised rose design. As soon as I saw the highlighter I knew I wanted it, but some highlighters that feature a raised design can be hard to apply as they’re pressed so firmly that the colour payoff is very minimal.
There are four different shades to choose from;
- White Rose
- Rose Gold
- Golden Rose
- Pink Rose
I chose the lightest shade from the four which is White Rose, but it’s not the lightest of highlighter shades. If you have super pale skin like myself, you might find this shade to be a little too deep. I wanted to include two different swatches of the Revolution Pro Lustre Highlighter so you could see what it would look like swatched at intensity, and then blended with a brush so you could get an idea of how it would look like on the skin.
It’s lovely and smooth when you use your fingertip to swatch, but when applied with a brush, it’s quite chunky. It doesn’t look glittery in the intense swatch, but when using a brush, it looks very sparkly on the cheeks which isn’t my vibe, but if you like noticeable sparkle, you might love this shade.
The formula feels very, very soft and unlike any of the other Revolution highlighters – and I’ve tried a lot. It almost feels like a cream highlighter, which might be why it’s so patchy when applied with a brush. I’m actually quite tempted to break up the pan with a spatula and turn it into a loose highlighter instead to see if it looks more flattering.
Even if it doesn’t, whilst I wouldn’t use it as a highlighter as I don’t like the patchiness, I will definitely use it as a highlighter as it’s a beautiful shade nonetheless, but I’d recommend their Goddess of Love Highlighters which are £5 each over the Revolution Pro Lustre Highlighter anyday.
