Welcome to day 2, if you haven’t seen yesterday scroll on down and have a look.
Today we are going to talk about the Soph X Makeup Revolution Palette, if you don’t know who Soph is she is a Youtuber, Sophdoesnails, I have followed her since her channel was VERY small but she has now nearly 500K subscribers which is amazing!
So this gorgeous palette that has 8 shades and they range from pale to medium skin shades, so a lot of them work on my skin tone which is very very fair. There are 5 baked highlight shades and 3 normal powders, the baked highlighter shades definitely pack more of a punch in regard to glow, I like that there is a mix, because you can use the non baked for day time, but they are buildable to be a blinding highlight as well,
So this palette retails for 10 Euro!!! I think that is brilliant, that is 1 Euro and 25 Cent per highlighter, which is great value, plus they last really well on the skin and you don’t have to use much product even if you want a blinding glow so that’s brilliant.
So I’ve a few thoughts on this, the shade range is brilliant but the two lightest shades aren’t baked highlighters and I would have loved if one of them was baked, for me being so fair and the baked ones being quite a bit more metallic or wet looking on the skin would have just been good for super quick makeup and using less product to build. Buuut I do love the pale lilac and pink shades, a lot of people find these scary because they think it’s going to come out a bright colour on the skin but if you’re in any way fair or pale-ish the likes of these colours work really well as an icy looking highlight and there is no real purple or pink tinge to the skin. Also the darker shades are gorgeous too and I can kind of get away with them when I’m pale, but if I have a bit of fake tan on they’re gorgeous, but I’ve also been using them on my eyes and they are amazing, so play around with them and see what works for you, and for that price you may as well give it a go.
I have found all of these apply best with a brush, both a fan brush or more dense brush work really well for the face, and any of your favourite eye shadow brushes work on the eyes, and for a bit of a more intense look use your finger to pack a bit on to the eyelid or cupids bow.
Rating: 8 out of 10.
Reasons for this is kind of what I have said above, I’d have preferred a baked highlighter for 1 of the 2 lightest shades. but overall I can’t complain much, it lasts pretty well on the skin and its quite a versatile palette.
So again I’ll be back tomorrow with Day 3 of highlighter week, as always any questions are welcome and check out my Instagram for more!
