Liquid Champagne

Makeup Revolution Liquid Champagne Liquid Highlighter ($9.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a light-medium gold with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had a soft, yellow base that made it appear lighter than Liquid Luminous Gold on the skin. The finish had noticeably shiny and shimmery but was more buildable in its intensity overall. The coverage was only buildable from sheer to medium coverage on me. It had a lightweight consistency that spread easily across my skin (whether bare or with foundation) and diffused without issue along the edges. The texture felt lightly emollient and more watery as it was rather thin overall. The highlighter stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$9.00/0.6 oz. - $15.00 Per Ounce

It's supposed to be a "buildable" liquid highlighter that is available in seven shades. They have a thin consistency that has a little more slip to it than water (almost an oiliness without being a true oil), which helped it spread more evenly on the skin without lifting base products or sheering out too readily. I had no trouble mixing the formula into liquid foundations, primers, or moisturizers or patting onto bare skin (or made-up skin) as a standalone highlighter. The effect of the highlighter was subtle to moderate, depending on application, amount applied, and whether it was layered. Most shades were buildable from semi-sheer to semi-opaque, though I noticed that they looked lighter and more similar applied than they did in the bottles. (Example: Liquid Lustre Gold appears as a darker copper when swatched but looked like a light pink on my cheeks.)

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Maybe it’s just me, but all the dozens of liquid highlighters look the same to me once they’re sheered out, and I’m so over the highlighting craze. ymmv

Thanks so much for reviewing these products! I bought 3 of them about 2 months ago hoping they are decent dupes of the expensive CoverFx drops. I’m also thrilled many other affordable brands are coming out with liquid highlighters! Looking forward to your upcoming reviews on the new ones! You rock!

I really like it a lot! But, having CP Here Kitty Kitty, I know that I already own one of the most perfect and glorious champagne highlighters around!
