A few weeks back I reviewed the Soph X Makeup Revolution Eyeshadow palette which you can read here, and since then I’ve fallen a little bit in love with it. Which got me thinking, what about the Soph X Makeup Revolution Highlight Palette? Now I originally didn’t purchase the Highlight Palette with the Eyeshadow palette because I’m not the biggest highlight fanatic, I didn’t really understand ‘that glow’ hype around highlighter. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve tried various highlighters in the past but they never really captured my heart and so are usually left out of my makeup looks/routine’s.
But since I loved the eyeshadow palette so much and the highlight shades did look very pretty, I decided I would give the palette a chance, maybe it might change my mind about using highlighters?
The palette consists of 8 beautiful shimmering shades; 5 baked powders (marbled effect) and 3 pressed powders, encased in a nude plastic packaging and transparent window, with gold lettering. The powder’s are super soft and buttery, they glide on to the skin with no clumping, clinging or chalkiness. They leave a beautiful highlighted ‘glow’ oh yes! I found my inner soph and embraced that glow! Some of the shades are more ‘blinding’ than other’s in the palette but each of them are build-able so you can start like me with a delicate barely there glow or build up to shine amongst the stars.
There’s a few bronze shades in the palette which is where I started purely because they felt ‘safe’ for someone who doesn’t wear highlight, and with the sun starting to peak through I’m desperately wanting lovely tanned skin and these shades satisfy that need. There’s a beautiful pink shade, which I’ve also been loving, another ‘safe’ option for me, then there’s Green and Lilac which I’ve not experimented with too much, except on the eye’s as inner corner and brow highlight.
I’m now a highlight convert, I’m not on the blinding glow hype but the subtle glow is a yes from me. These shades are also great for strobing. On the morning’s I’ve wanted to put something on my face but have 0 inspiration I’ve just strobed using the bronze shades and they look so nice, almost mimicking a natural sunkissed look.
Have you tried the Soph X Makeup Revolution Palettes?
