Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter

Blooming Fiction, lifestyle blog, Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter

My first ever baked highlighter! After trying the YSL Touche Eclat, which I find really clings on to foundation .. I've been listening to promising reviews of baked highlighters and thought I'd try one. Hopping into my local Superdrug I browsed the Makeup Revolution counter and picked up the Vivid Baked Highlighter.
 
The photographs don't do the product justice as there is such a lovely shimmery look to the product. Aside from the slightly marble looking pattern across the top, I couldn't resist the beauty of this product so it jumped straight into my basket, plus at only £3.00 I thought heck why not.

Designed to applied wet or dry, this product is very flexible but I would highly suggest applying as a wet / damp highlighter. Reason being is that on dry application with a brush, in my case the Real Techniques Sculpting Brush, the result is practically invisible. I applied the product for the first time as I was getting ready to go to a baby shower and I could barely see it at all. After about 6 attempts of layering the product I finally saw a slight shimmer but nothing to really get excited about. At this point I was feeling very deflated about my new purchase.
 
However, when used on a damp applicator sponge there is a much more defined and exciting result. There is no glitter effect, but the shimmery pop is really pretty and eye catching for all the right reasons.

As my first indulgence into baked highlighters I like the colour of the product but ideally I want a product that looks great dry as well as wet. Affordability is fab but if dry results are important to you too, maybe try a different highlighter.
