I heart Makeup Unicorn Highlighter Review

13:59

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll know I really like Make Up Revolution’s products, particularly their eyeshadow palettes, so when I was browsing in Superdrug the other day and came across their neighbouring company's Unicorn Highlighter I just had to buy it.
I heart Makeup Unicorn Rainbow Highlighter retails for £4.99 at Superdrug
I’ve never owned a highlighter before, and before I watched a couple of youtube videos I had no idea what you even used it for. I just saw the word ‘Unicorn’ and the little rainbow coloured heart and was sold.
The highlighter comes in a little cardboard box, I was expecting the product to be in more of a plastic case to keep moisture and bacteria out a little better, but you know what? The writing on the front of the box is holographic so secure casing isn’t all that important.


 The highlighter has a very vivid finish, with an icy silver-blue being the dominant colour. I was kind of hoping for a rainbow effect, but iridescent is cool too. I found some of the colours to have virtually no pigment, and others like the purple and the blue to be really strongly pigmented. What I like about the highlighter though is how sparkly it is, I do love sparkly things.


I’ll have to be careful with how I apply it, as if I apply too much or slightly in the wrong place it might look a little bruisey.


Individual Swatches - I guess if you were very precise you could have a rainbow effect highlight.

Blended Swatch - It looks more silver than blue here, but there is a strong blue undertone.


This wouldn’t be an everyday highlighter for me, unless I was feeling particularly extravagant, however it’d look great alongside some festival glitter for nights away, concerts and festivals. It is however, a very pretty piece of make-up and it’ll look gorgeous on my make-up shelf until a use for it comes along.

  2. I keep eyeing this up every time I go to Superdrug. I guess if worst comes to worst and I don't like it I can always use it as a blogging prop right? Xx

  4. I've seen so many mixed reviews about this product - it looks so pretty in the packaging but I've read so many reviews that said the pigmentation and colour was a let down. Great review though!

  5. This highlighter is stunning, I've seen it before in store and almost purchased it but like you said it's not really an everyday product no matter how beautiful it is x

  9. Ahhhhh I saw this on my good friend's IG and fell in love instantly, but hadn't seen it in action, and it's so pretty! I especially love the rainbow application, even though I could never manage to replicate that in a million years. This is almost too pretty to use -- I'd probably stare at its lovely rainbow heart gloriousness all day long! If only we had Superdrug in the US!
