Makeup Revolution Strobe Highlighter (Holographic Lights) Review:

Makeup Revolutions Strobe Highlighter ($6.00 for 0.26 oz) is one of the many new highlighters they’ve launched at Ulta Beauty. Of course I had to take action and buy one to test out glamour babes. Hey, for the price it was the feasible thing to do. Lol.

Their light powder highlighter gives a natural illumination to the skin by diffusing the light, and boy does it!

Holographic Lights is a white gold duochrome with a green and yellow flip. 

Wanna see the Aurora Borealis? Just dust some of this on your face and you will be taken to an incredible light show. Oh yea, this shade is that beautiful and compliments all skin tones. 

This highlighter can be applied either wet or dry to create different intensities.
The baked highlighter has somewhat of a rough texture, but goes on velvety smooth setting in a pearlized finish. There are no glittery or shimmery particles reflecting through Holographic Lights whatsoever. The formula is lightweight, highly pigmented, blendable, buildable, and is easy to apply with either a highlighter brush or damp blending sponge.

My skin is pretty fair so I had no problem building color to facial areas (brows arch, inner corners of eyes, Cupid’s bow, and cheeks) dry. I was happy with the soft holographic Aurora glow I had created.

Wet was a no go for me. The look was too intense. I felt (a little green) like I was morphing into Kermit the frog or possibly Gumby. Ahhhh, the characters I cherished most as a child, Lol. The green definitely stands out more than the yellow in this highlighter when wet. I think it would look best on deeper complexions.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the color payoff is not good. I know! There are so many positives to this highlighter and the one negative had to be the longevity. How could such a beautiful highlighter have a life span of only 2 hours?! Uggggh, beyond frustrating. Well, seeing that Makeup Revolutions Strobe Highlighter has great buildable quality, I can always incorporate it with other highlighters. I’m not giving up on this one. It’s too gorgeous not to apply.

Have you tried any of the MUR Strobe Highlighter shades- Gold Addict, Moon Glow Lights, Ever Glow Lights, this one? 

How do you feel about them?

Stay beautiful! Xo.
