How are you all doing? I am totally becoming a highlighter addict because highlighters fake that healthy glow in such a brilliant way. Mom asks me to have beet and carrot juice for a nice glow, but I tell her that I have highlighters. 😛 No, I would soon start having that juice, but as of now, I have an amazing highlighter to review for you guys! So, let’s begin.

My Experience with Makeup Revolution Radiant Light – Exhale:
The highlighter comes in a black box with the name and stuff written over it. It is a nice small box which can be easily carried in the vanity. The highlighter comes in a circular basic black pan which closes with a click, so no worries of it falling apart in the vanity. The highlighter does not break even if it falls, so we won’t have shattered and broken pieces. The pan is accompanied with a huge mirror attached, in which I can see my entire face. The price is great because most of the highlighters are available above 1000 bucks. I liked that the range has 3 shades to match everyone’s skin-tone.
Pigmentation and texture:
The texture is really soft and powdery. It is not at all chalky and gritty, hence glides very smoothly on my skin. I can apply it all over my face or on certain areas which I wish to highlight. The pigmentation is really good and buildable to a great extent. The shade “Exhale” matches perfectly with my skin-tone, hence does not look fake. I apply it lightly just in one swipe when I apply it all over my face. And 2-3 swipes build up the glow and colour when I only want to highlight my facial features.
Results on skin:
It adds an instant glow to my pale skin which looks very subtle and natural. It instantly brightens up my skin and it shines in a very pretty manner. But it has to be applied over a foundation because applying it directly makes it look a bit fake. It is like an instant remedy to get celebrity-like skin. Even if it gets applied in excess, all I have to do is remove a little with a cloth and there I get a perfect look.
The highlighter stays on for like 6-7 hours over my foundation. It starts to fade a bit after 6 hours but still stays. It looks a bit tacky after 7 hours because little shimmers are left on the face and my face usually oxidises after 6-7 hours.
One of the best highlighters I have ever used!
