One thing I don't own many of is pink highlighters be they powder or otherwise.
Why? I find them pretty hard to come by (Benefit High Beam aside) and truth be told my complexion does suit more golden tones but that doesn't mean I don't like a little variety and nothing looks quite as pretty teamed with a pink blush than an oyster pink highlight. Shall I share my recent £3 find?
The first thing that will strike most about the Revolution Make Up Baked Highlighter in Pink Lights is the intricate design engraved upon the product surface. Does it remind you of anything? Yup it is somewhat similar to MAC's Extra Dimension Skin Finish design but not identical by any means.
I would deem Revolution Make Up Baked Highlighter in Pink Lights to be a cool, almost icy pink with a slight blue undertone that can result is the powder looking a little lilac. Like most highlighting products this is fairly universal and will depend on your preference rather than skin tone when it comes to purchasing it or not, pushed I'd say this would look best on paler and cooler skin tones than others.
On the skin Revolution Make Up Baked Highlighter in Pink Lights is extremely subtle and gives a light luminescent oyster shell pink shade that is not metallic but not totally shimmer based either - it sort of nestles between the two finishes and is much prettier in person than on camera. Although a little firm and dry in texture this highlighter is perfect for all those like myself who prefer a subtle glow rather than a product jam packed with glitter/shimmer particles - in my eyes it is perfect for everyday wear when you require a more muted approach. This is the perfect choice for all those with enlarged pores and fine lines as the shimmer is so fine it does not cling or emphasize such imperfections nor will it cling to dry areas of skin. In terms of wear I experienced around 10 hours of soft shimmer.
