I have always found using highlighters quite a daunting task. Although I have often admired how amazing and glowing a great highlighter can make the skin look, I have never myself ever used a highlighter. I decided things had to change and picked up an affordable option to ease my way into the world of highlighters. My only regret is that I wish I’d ventured into this world sooner! Although this product is branded a bronzer, don’t be mistaken; it also acts as the perfect subtle highlighter. To read more of my thoughts, stay tuned!
For an all year round bronzed look with the buildable Vivid Baked Bronzer. Provides a natural looking colour, which lasts all day.
My Experience with Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Bronzer Rock On World:
Before I go any further, I just want to point out that for girls who love their “eye blinding, shining, bright as the future highlight” in one swipe, this is not for you. This highlighter is much more subtle, however, it can certainly be built up to attain that blinding look if that’s more your style! The product comes in a standard circular packaging with a lid that you flip open – the packaging is sturdy and lightweight, so perfectly travel friendly. This is also such an affordable product! I only paid four pounds, which is such great value for money considering the brilliant quality of this product.
As can be seen, this is a gorgeous bronze-copper shade and has flecks of gold in it. The texture of this product is smooth and the colour payoff with one swipe is quite subtle but there is a good deal of shimmer. The texture of this isn’t chalky at all, it has a smooth finish and is easy to apply. As well as this, many products can have the tendency to look cakey when built up in layers but this product doesn’t have that issue at all and gives a seamless finish. As for longevity, I tested this product out at a wedding that I went to recently. I had my makeup on for over eight hours and it was also super hot that day, so a perfect test for the duration of this product. This highlighter definitely has great lasting power and lasted for a good couple of hours, however, after that it does have the tendency to fade depending on how much you’ve put on. Since I prefer a more natural highlight, I didn’t put much on, so it faded faster, however, the product may last longer if you pack on more.
This highlighter is also very photogenic since it photographs beautifully. The versatility of this product is also something I love; since it gives quite subtle highlight, it can be used as part of an everyday makeup look but it can also be built up to look more dramatic for occasions. I have noticed that just one swipe of this product doesn’t give a very noticeable effect on the skin, which is probably due to the fact that the main purpose of this is a bronzer, but that isn’t a big issue since it can be built up easily.
Furthermore, this would look beautiful on all skin tones; if you have a fair complexion, this not only gives you a great highlight but also gives you a nice bronzed look, whereas for deeper skin tones, it acts as beautiful golden highlighter. I find that the best tool for this product, if you want a subtle, everyday finish, is a small fluffy brush which I like to sweep across the high points of my face, or if I want a more obvious highlight, I like to use my fingers to pack on the product.
