Blogtober Day 12 - Liquid highlights from the drugstore.

Everyone is obsessed with the cover FX drops however I wasn't sure how often I would use a formula like that so I put off purchasing them especially as they aren't the most affordable thing ever. However over the past couple of weeks a lot of drugstore brands are catching up with the hype. I actually really love the way these apply and I could definitely see myself picking up the cover FX version at some point. 

So first off we have the Makeup revolution Liquid highlights. These remind me a lot of the cover FX ones in terms of their packaging. These are a little less intense than the Barry M ones however still give the skin the most beautiful glow. The only thing I feel like is missing from this range is a paler shade even the pink is a little dark on me and although they have the unicorn shade which has a purple reflect in it I sort of wish there was a more neutral white based shade. 

So going through the shades we have Unicorn elixir which is a white base with a purple reflect and is gorgeous for if you want something different. Then we have liquid starlight which is a rose pink shade which for me is verging on being to dark. Then finally from Makeup revolution I have liquid luminous gold which is a medium gold shade which I am only going to be able to wear when I am either fake tanned or naturally tanned. 

Unicorn, Starlight, Luminous gold, At first light, Precious pearl.

Moving onto the Barry M Liquid chrome drops. For me I actually prefer the square bottles as I just find them a little easier to store. That being said for someone with not as much makeup as me this probably isn't so much of an issue. I also find the dropper is much better on these ones actually taking up the product into the pipette. I feel like texture wise these are definitely a little runnier than the MR ones so they do blend into the skin a little more naturally. I also find that even though there is less shades in this range they are more diverse.

Onto the shades I have first is Precious pearl which is a white base with a pink duo chrome running through it. This is gorgeous and I have to say is probably my favourite shade out of the five I have from these two brands. The other shade I have from Barry M is the shade at first light which is a slightly paler version of Makeup revolutions Starlight shade. In terms of a rose toned highlight this one is definitely more suited to a paler skin tone.
