Today, I will be reviewing a product from a brand which is well known for making dupes, and that’s Makeup Revolution. I personally do not prefer using their products a lot but there are a lot of people who speak very highly of Makeup Revolution. I was blown away with the quality of eye shadow palette “Fortune Favors Brave” and I had to try another much-loved product from their recent launches. I picked up Unicorns Heart rainbow highlighter, and here’s the review:
Mica, Talc, Dimethicone, Nylon 12, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben. May Contain: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491), Carmine (CI 75470), Ferric Ferrocyanide (CI 77510).
INR 1050 (10 gm).
My Experience with Makeup Revolution I Heart Makeup Unicorns Heart Highlighter:
I had seen similar rainbow products from Wet n Wild and a couple of other brands, well availability being one of the problems in India, I could only get my hands on this one. A short story behind this, the one I received from my online purchase was delivered in a damaged state. I returned and then reordered. So, the first thing that got into my head is that this product is fragile! Very very fragile!
Next, the packaging is a look alike of Too Faced heart blush. This highlighter comes in a white base cardboard box and inside there’s a cardboard box in a cute heart shape with golden base and white cap. The piece I have has a loose V cap. I am not sure this is the issue with every packet, the cap comes out suddenly and too fast. The packaging is bulkier for travel purposes and it being a card board one I am too skeptical of the durability.
This unicorn highlighter is a beautiful multi-shade one, the pastel shades resemble that of an unicorn. As you can see from the closeup shots, it is quite glittery. The texture is soft and the colors show pretty decently when swatched individually. The shimmers are very noticeable and not at all subtle (unlike MAC Soft and Gentle or MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish Double Gleam). There is a lot of fall out in here. A small quantity goes long way. It stays well for almost 8 hours.
The shades present here are pink, light blue, light green, golden and peach. The idea is to swirl your brush across and get tinges of all shades after application. It is actually tough to apply individual colors as the strips are so thin that picking one color at one time on the brush will not be easy. The brush needs to be small if you still want to do that.
There is not any fragrance in this product whatsoever. One thing that I would like to bring to your notice is that the quantity offered is quite good, almost double the grams compared to what is given by Too Faced and in much lesser price. If the product is even half good it’s a win for the buyer!
Overall, I found the product to be bit chunky when it comes to shimmers, but it’s a great product at this price and if used precisely, it can be a great highlighter to go on.
