Dripping in Liquid Chrome

‘Highlight on fleek’ – the three words than any girl knows mean their makeup looks good, especially if their boyfriend says it.

I’ve been after a ‘wet-looking’ chrome finish highlighter for some time and I’ll be honest, I went into my local Superdrug hoping that the Makeup Revolution liquid highlighters were in store.

Unfortunately, they weren’t but I did find these amazing Liquid Chrome’s from Barry M (£6.99 each, Superdrug). There’s a total of five highlighters to choose from, all the way from cool to warm tones and even a unicorn style one.

I went for ‘At First Light’ which is a gorgeous pinky-hued chrome with a cool toned finish – and I haven’t put it down since.

Now, I did originally have a bit of an issue with the application of this product.

It comes, as you can see, in a dropper format and it’s very liquidy.

I put on my makeup as normal, powders and all and then applied this with the fingers, dabbing it onto the face.

It went very very blotchy, and I tried to save it with a beauty blender but it didn’t work at all.

So, after asking your guys’ opinions on Twitter (@beccapbeauty), I got a lot of good advice.

Next time, I applied all my cream products- foundation, concealer, cream bronzer and then applied the liquid chrome from the dropper onto the areas that I want the reflection and then dab it in with my fingers. It worked like a dream and not a day has gone by where this hasn’t been applied to my face.

As you can see from the swatch below, it’s literally like a metal reflection and you can make it natural or really amp it up for the full monty.

Honestly, I couldn’t recommend this product enough, it’s really perfect and it seems to last all day long. You could ever put a powder highlight over the top to really up the anti.

I’m definitely going to keep my eye out for the Makeup Revolution ones, but if they’re still not in store – this is an amazing dupe (I assume).

Do you use any liquid highlighters? I’d love any recommendations!

Love, always.

    1. I’ve just bought the makeup revolution liquid highlighter and it’s also amazing! Definitely not worth spending more when you can get the same for less x
