Ice Kiss

Makeup Revolution Ice Kiss Skin Kiss ($9.00 for 0.49 oz.) is a bright white gold with a frosted, metallic finish. It had chunkier shimmer and a very strong, metallic sheen on the skin. It had medium, buildable color coverage, though the texture was incredibly dense and thick that it took some trial and error to find the right brush to work with this product. It blended out without trouble, and the finish emphasized my pores slightly but did so less than I expected (based on how it swatched). When I tested it, the highlighter lasted for seven hours on me before breaking down.

The Skin Kiss formula is described as a “crushed pigment highlighter” that “adds a natural touch of illumination.” I feel like brands that give too little information often make it hard to know what to expect (or not expect). In the case of Skin Kiss, it’s an incredibly dense texture, almost so dense that it felt like a hybrid between powder and cream. It takes a heavy hand or a denser brush (like a blush brush or even a flat, foundation brush) to get product onto the brush. It’s also a more metallic, chunkier highlight that is more like boom! highlight! than a “natural touch.” With enough buffing and blending, the effect can be moderate to heavy but I’d never call it natural. The compact is also massive, so you’re getting plenty for your money, but it’s in that territory where it is more likely to be overkill for many.

Cream Highlighters

I don’t like when cream products stay tacky on the skin, so as long as it is a cream-based product that dries down for the most part, I’d totally use them. I like that they can add subtle luminosity and more of a glow than a shimmer.
