Welcome back to my blog! I hope everyone is well and having a good week! I can’t believe we are in February already… where did January go!? For today’s post I thought I would share with you my favourite beauty product for the month of January. I plan on starting to make this post a monthly tradition, with a new favourite each time! So, to find out what item of makeup I chose for my ‘Product of the month- January edition’, then please keep reading!
Deciding my favourite product for this month was definitely an easy choice for me … the Makeup Revolution highlighter in the shade ‘Golden Lights’! I am sure that you may have heard the hype about this product by now, as everyone in the beauty community, including Jeffree Star, seems to be buzzing over it! The product is a white highlighter with a gold iridescent shine/ gold reflects that look amazing when they hit the light. Not to mention that it is extremely pigmented, which provides a blinding glow when applied to the high points of the face, but it can also be made to look more natural, or indeed, more intense by building up the product (which is what I normally do). Also, the texture of the product is another bonus, as the gold glitter within the product isn’t too chunky, but it is quite powdering, which I don’t particularly mind as I love the way it looks on the skin, which is the important bit!
Additionally, I think the highlighter would look good on any skin tone due to the high pigmentation and colour/ iridescent nature of the product; I have pretty fair skin, but the gold shine helps to warm my complexion up, whilst the white base brightens my face an makes my highpoints really stand out. I usually apply the product to my cupids bow, the end of my nose, my inner eye corners, underneath my brow bones, and of course, above my cheekbones! This creates a full face glow that finishes off any makeup look every time! In comparison to highlighters I have used in the past, including ones from luxury brands, I have to say this one beats them all. There isn’t much more you could ask for in a highlighter! But, the best bit is yet to come… it only costs £3! Incredible! I definitely think that I need to purchase another one (from Superdrug) as a back up for when my runs out! Although I might not need one for a while as the pan size/ amount of product you get is impressive for the price (10g).
To wrap up my favourite product post for this month, I have to say I can’t recommend the Revolution highlighter enough; I use it everyday and have no plans to stop! Below are some images of the product, both with and without flash, but I would suggest going to your local Superdrug to test it out for yourself! I have also used the highlight in some of my previous posts ( ‘Makeup by me’ and ‘NYE outfit and makeup’), so if you want to see how it looks on the skin/ how it photographs then be sure to check those out!
I hope you enjoyed this post; I am already looking forward to seeing what makeup product will be my favourite for the month of February!
