It’s late January, at last, the longest month is nearly over, bar the final festive slump that is tax season. January’s commonly associated with many people feeling the Winter pinch, although there’s no season more perfect for adding some glimmer to your make-up routine, highlighter is probably the least of your priorities.
But, what’s this; wait. If you’re a fan of purse friendly drugstore brand Make-up Revolution, there’s some great news in store for you… £6 can afford you a versatile liquid highlighter in the newest formula. Liquid Highlighter by Revolution is a serious contender in terms of duping more expensive products, this lot is almost a straight up copy of Custom Enhancer Drops from Cover FX, which retail at £17.

Revolution’s more affordable alternatives come in no less than seven celestial shades, and like most liquid highlighters on the market at the moment, are presented in a tall glass bottle that boasts a clear pipette dispenser.
Typically speaking, liquid highlighters take more time to apply and set, more so than powder and cream varieties, yet they’re great multitaskers and can go some way towards boosting or even replacing other items in your beauty stash. A few drops added to your foundation can add a pretty, subtle glow without giving you the intense Tin-Man face. Under make-up or mixed in with a body moisturiser, they offer that touch of radiance that adds a healthy radiant glow without being O.T.T.
There are 7 dreamy hues in the Revolution range of liquid highlighters…
Starlight: cool toned, bright silver pink that’s not for the faint hearted – it’s bold in both colour and sheen and suits all skin tones.
Unicorn Elixir: gritty, glitter laden, opalescent, and fun. Unicorn Elixir is multi-faceted and fun. It’s a glistening opal white shimmer full of ditsy lilac sparkles.
Rose Gold: One of, if not the deepest colour options in this line-up. Rose Gold delivers a warm glow and a hint of tint to the skin. It translated to almost liquid metal, high sheen, which won’t fade all day.
Luminous Gold: This is very similar to the Champagne hue. The difference is more of a prominent golden tone with a metallic finish.
Lustre Gold: Warm Gold, almost rose gold which is wonderfully pigmented and dreamy to apply. This looks good on medium to dark complexions, but may suit lighter complexions if worn in lieu of blush/bronzer.
Bronze Gold: Light gold, almost bronze toned that is not dissimilar to Champagne in texture or finish. Bronze Gold is slightly warmer and rose in tone, which isn’t prone to wearing away to a glittery finish.
Champagne: The ultimate light, cool toned gold which is bold in colour pay off and offers a metallic finish. As beautiful as this shade may be, you have to be careful not to overwork Champagne into the skin as it can become glittery once the initial pigment is buffed into the skin. This is a good dupe of Cover FX’s Custom Enhancer Drops in Sunlight.
