Make Up Revolution Ultra Pro Glow Highlight Palette!

Hey everyone!

Welcome to my second makeup review and third post of the year! I intend to keep the ball rolling with makeup posts this year and there’s nothing more motivating than a shiny new product to try, am I right? The lovely Abbie from my Blogger Babes chat ended up with me to buy for in our Secret Santa recently. We set a £15 limit including postage and these are the beautiful bits she got for me…

Of course I had to review this one at least. I recently did a post on the Ultra Cool Glow palette here and said that I think a more goldy toned palette would suit me better, which this is! I’m so excited to have both of them to compare.

At first glance, I imagine this palette would be a winner for most people. It’s got a few lighter shades and some really lovely yellow-golds and rose-golds for different skin tones. It also has a darker brown in the right bottom corner that you could even use as a bronzer if you’re as pale as me. None of the colours are out there or intimidating like the Cool Glow palette so I think this one is definitely more of a safe-bet for anyone.

So let’s talk about the product…

Unlike the Cool Glow palette, on application it glided on perfectly and gave a gorgeous glow with just a swipe or two of the brush. I found all the colours to be super pigmented and creamy to my pleasant surprise. I decided to use the pink and brown on the bottom row as blush/contour shades and they blended together beautifully on my cheeks. I definitely think this is going to replace the Peach Blush Palette that is currently in my makeup bag as my staple every day contour kit. I think it gives a beautiful finish and is so build-able aswell if you want a more dramatic look for an evening.

Would I recommend it?

Hell yes! I love the diversity of the shades, i think it’d work well for every skin tone. I was a bit skeptical about the bottom row as highlighters at first as I’m so pale but I’m actually even more thrilled to use them as contour shades as now I won’t have to carry more products round if it’s all in one palette! I absolutely love it, although it isn’t a blinding highlight it gives such a beautiful glow to the skin. Perfect for day to day wear!

Have you tried this palette or anything similar? What drugstore highlighters are your favourites?

’Til Next Time,
BTB Xx

    Aww, Abbie got you such lovely gifts! The shades in here look amazing, I do love a good highlighter palette. Sleek do amazing ones as well but MUR highlighters just seem to be foolproof! x

  8. This palette looks gorgeous! I own two Makeup Revolution palettes – a contour one and a blush/highlight one – and they’re both amazing value for money! I love the idea of a blogger secret santa and I’ve seen a few fellow bloggers share their goodies – it’s such a lovely idea 🙂 xo

    I haven’t reached for this palette in such a long time, but I really need to, as it’s so beautiful! I never thought about using it as a multipurpose palette, but that is such a good idea! Great post lovely xx

      It’s so lovely isn’t it! I like getting my use out of products so no money is wasted 😉 haha! Thank you <3 Xx

  10. Sophie says:

    This is so interesting. I’m always a little sceptical of palettes like this because I’m so fair there’s usually only a shade or two that works for me but it’s good to know this works. Shame about the cool one though, I usually prefer pearly shades x

      Yeah I really do feel you there, that’s why I end up using most palettes as multi-use things so I can get my moneys worth out of them! X

  11. EVA says:

    Makeup Revolution has been such a dark horse! I really wasn’t sure it would be worth the hype, but everything I’ve tried I’ve enjoyed, and you can’t beat the prices. These highlighters look lovely! I’m excited to try the new concealer range, which I think will rival the colourpop one as best cheap concealer if it’s good! x

    This palette looks fab! I haven’t tried anything new from MUR in a very long time but I love their cheek products. I’m still obsessed with the NYX Strobe Of Genius palette which has been my favourite for quite a while 🙂 x
