There is something about Makeup Revolution that makes me go weak in the knees. Be it their stunning highlighter palettes or super cute heart-shaped baked blushes. It all seems to have walked out of a dreamy tumblr theme. So, when their three triple baked highlighters- Goddess Of Faith, Goddess Of Love and Golden Goddess were launched, I couldn’t wait to try them all. These three are in champagne, pale pink/lilac and golden yellow undertones, respectively. Unfortunately, they are always Out Of Stock with all e-retailers in India. So, when I could find Goddess of Love online, I totally grabbed it. Read on for my Makeup Revolution I Heart Makeup Goddess Of Love Triple Baked Highlighter-Review and Swatch. You can also read the review of their Blushing Hearts Triple Baked Blush, here.

The 3D highlighter comes in a glitzy heart shaped cardboard box. The packaging material seems a bit flimsy and a Too Faced Sweetheart range rip off, design wise. Being light weight, it seems easy to be carried around yet its fragile paperboard container might cause travelling nightmares.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH IT!
Makeup Revolution calls it ‘Pure Light To Capture Everyone’s Heart’ and I second them! I have always been partial towards cream highlighters for their more natural finish and that ‘glow from within’ sort of appearance. Powder highlighters, on the contrary, look flaky and chalk-like. Moreover, most of them are loaded with shimmer and end up creating an illusion of enlarged pores. Goddess Of Love, though, is in a league of its own.
This highlighter has a smooth texture and finely milled particles that provide a subtle sheen on the high points of the face. The product is highly pigmented and a single swirl with a brush picks more than you would need. A very light handed application is recommended given to its heavy-duty pigmentation. It does have miniscule shimmer component that looks natural once blended and provides a dewy finish. You may also use your fingers to softly dab and apply it on the face.
This shade is slightly whitish with pale pink undertone that would complement fair skinned women perfectly. It still looked flattering on my wheatish brown skin as well, following thorough blending. Goddess Of Faith is more champagne coloured to suit all Indian skin tones and sadly is perpetually unavailable everywhere.
Coming to the staying prowess, like all powder highlighters this one too disappears in a few hours. Especially on my oily skin, its short-lived ‘performance’ left me yearning for more. This is another reason that I prefer cream highlighters as they don’t ditch you right in the middle of a romantic date, letting sebum spoil the fun. In winters, it sticks around for longer than in humid summers.
Besides this little glitch, I am so in love with it! The product quantity is decent and considering the little amount required every time, I am expecting it to last forever!
