After four days of searching I can finally call off the search party glamour babes. I found my Makeup Revolution Radiance Radiant Lights Highlighter Palette, yay! Pats on the back to me, I knew it was in my closet somewhere, I just had to dig deep. I may have discovered Naria along the way, lol.
Alright, enough of my silliness. I’m ready to compare this palette to Makeup Revolution’s Beyond Radiance for y’all!
First off, you can get both palettes at Ulta for $15 each, and right now Makeup Revolution is BOGO half off, which is a great deal if you want to compare them for yourselves (p.s. Ulta accepts returns if you are unhappy with your purchase, just keep the reciept) Plus, be sure to use Ulta’s 3.50 off coupon on top of that deal and you will get them for $19 all together plus tax. Boom! I just saved you $10, how do you like those mathematic money saving skills?! Pretty sweet huh?! I know, lol.
What was I talking about again?
Ah, yes, the palette comparisons. Last Sunday’s review was about MR’s Beyond Radiance which is a described as a highlighter palette, but in reality is more of an illuminating palette like Hourglasses Ambient light one, which creates a soft all over natural glow. Whereas, Makeup Revolutions Radiance actually is a highlighter palette having a bit more shimmer, accentuating the features with more intensity like Becca Cosmetics would.
My apologies for the confusion. I accidentally mixed up the shade names when it comes to these two palettes. Breathe, Glow, and Exhale are actually the shade names for the Radiance highlighters, and the Beyond Radiance are a complete mystery for they are nameless. Let’s just call them Mr. White, Mr. Pink, and Mr. Glow, a little Reservoir Dog humor (Quentin Tarantino film circa 1992) for you boys and gals, lol.
Breathe is a champagne, Exhale is a pink, and Glow is a golden bronze.
The Radiance Highlighters are lightweight, soft, finely milled producing some kickback like Beyond Radiance, nicely pigmented, and are set in a soft pearlized finish. I know Becca’s do carry a bit more glam in the shimmer department, but these are build-able and give off a good amount of sparkle once applied and have settled into the skin. So have at it! Apply as much of this highlighter as you like, you’ll create that beautiful golden glow in no time without it caking up or applying unevenly, and they last for hours too!
What do you think of Makeup Revolution’s Beyond Radiance and Radiance Palette? Have you tried them?! Do you think they are dupe worthy of Hourglasses or Becca’s?
Stay beautiful, xo.
