I'm sure to the regular readers amongst you, this post is a little like deja vu, as I did post when these originally came out individually last year. However I thought it was worth writing this to show you the Radiance Palette (£8) version as well as to announce that this is now available in the hundreds of Superdrug branches that stock Makeup Revolution. The palette consists of 3 highlighters, which look very much like a certain Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette...
I picked this up as I really needed to head off and as there was a 3 for 2 in Superdrug, it would've been silly not to get a third item. I do just prefer palettes and also I thought this would be great for travelling as all three shades are lovely and the packaging is just so compact. Also, I think Makeup Revolution's packaging is really secure; I go away a lot and have never had any issues with their palettes and I have a few of them!
Onto the highlighters themselves; there are three shades in this palette. There's a neutral beige (Breathe), a slightly frosty cream shade (Exhale) and a golden colour (Glow). I think you will probably have favourites based on your skin tone but personally I think that Breathe is the perfect Spring or Autumn shade, Exhale is a little bit of Winter sparkle and Glow is great for a deep Summer look. Personally Breathe is my everyday shade as I think it suits my complexion best, Glow also works nicely, whereas Exhale is a little lighter than I usually go.
The texture and quality are unlike any drugstore product I've ever tried. These are honestly the best highlighters you are going to get at this price-point. They're so soft yet don't have much fall-out at all, they look so natural on the skin and whilst they have a sheen-y shimmer to them there's not bits of glitter. It really does feel like a much more premium product and I can say I'd happily have paid about £20 for this, but seeing as Makeup Revolution are letting us have it for £8, I'm not complaining!
I do actually have one of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders - Dim Light, which I think Breathe is a dupe for. You can see comparison swatches here. As I mentioned in the Hourglass dupe post, I think that the Radiant Light Highlighters are more of a highlighter in that they aren't quite as finely milled and more pigmented, compared to the Hourglass versions, which are more like setting powders. Personally, I found the Hourglass really overrated and too expensive so I think these are a really great alternative. To be honest I feel like I prefer the fact that these are more pigmented, as I like the fact they just look like really natural highlighters.
In short: if you don't own this, please go to your local Superdrug to rectify the situation, as you will not be disappointed!
