Liquid Luminous Gold

Makeup Revolution Liquid Luminous Gold Liquid Highlighter ($9.00 for 0.60 oz.) is a medium gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had an incredibly smooth, shiny, and luminous finish on the skin that was between moderate and blinding, depending on application, layering, and the like. The liquid highlighter was buildable from sheer to semi-opaque that was easy to spread and blend out on my skin, whether it was bare or had foundation on it. It had a lightweight consistency that wasn’t too watery nor was it heavy enough to be gel-like. This shade wore well for nine hours on me.

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.)

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

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!
