I love a good highlight – both natural and more intense highlighters. Therefore I am always looking for great highlighters that aren’t extremely expensive. When I discovered the Ultra Pro Glow palette from Makeup Revolution I had to try it, there are 8 highlighters and the shades vary and therefore they will suit all kinds of skin tones. The palette has a mixture of champagne, yellow, gold, pink, icy/white and bronze highlight shades. I mostly use the lighter shades since I am quite pale but the darker shades work great as an eyeshadow – or you can even use the bronze shade as a glowy bronzer. The range of shades are really great but some of the shades look a lot darker in the pan than they do on my skin – it’s the same with the pink highlighters, they do not look as pink on the skin, it’s more like a subtle pink reflection when the light hits the glow.
When applying the highlighters they feel really soft, rich and creamy. I find that they are much more blendable than some other highlight palettes too, leaving a subtle yet radiant glow. The fine powder has a satin finish to it, that doesn’t contain large glitter particles so isn’t over the top glittery or tacky looking. One of the best things is that the highlighters are very buildable and can be used as a natural glow or an intense highlight – one of the reasons why I really like this palette!
So if you’re looking for a new highlight-palette and want a cheaper option than the Anastasia Beverly Hill Glow Kits, I would definitely recommend trying this palette – and if you find it being too strong of a highlight then try using the shades as eyeshadows!
Do you know any great drugstore highlighters?
