Makeup Revolution Ultra Strobe Balm Euphoria Review
Brand Claims:We bring Hyperstrobing to you. Get an all year round glow with the Makeup Revolution strobe balms. An illuminating balm available in 2 shades for a natural looking highlight to assist with sculpting the face and adding depth. Use it wet to dry depending on the intensity of the desired colour and use with just your fingers for effortless application in the key highlighting areas as a finishing touch to your makeup.
Euphoria is a soft pink pearl highlighter balm that looks holographic in pan which means that it reflects pink to silver pearl light depending on where the light hits its surface. This lovely pink pearl duo-chrome balm looks clear white cream base in pan housed in sleek round compact case with a flip open lid. Packaging is simple, feels slightly flimsy & comes without any mirror.
Makeup Revolution Ultra Strobe Balms are available in two shades Euphoria and Hypnotic. Euphoria is pink toned pearl highlighter while Hypnotic is lovely golden highlighter perfect for warm Indian skin complexions. I chose Euphoria primarily to pair it up with my pink – peach blushes which I wear for most part of the year whereas I primarily use golden highlighter for warm,sun kissed looks.
Makeup revolution Ultra Strobe Balm has silky , light weight texture with fine pink iridescent particles. Formula is best applied with fingers though I have tried applying it with MAC 187 Duo Fibre Stippling Brush and I was able to achieve nice, blended luminizing effect . I dot it up on targeted areas and then blend it out with my fingers. For inner corners of eyes, I use small sponge eyeshadow brush to apply and blend.
On application ,it feels creamy but sets up as powder. It is cream to powder formula . As cream it is not overtly greasy whereas once it sets to powder form it is not drying, still feels like a creamy powder on skin. It looks pretty daunting in pan but blends up to give really pretty pink pearlised highlighting effect that lasts on me for 7-8 hours.On single layer I get nice wearable pinkish highlights however it can be layered for achieving beaming highlights without looking greasy or powdery.It is best applied on top of your foundation underneath your setting powder. It astounded me when I tested it on top of my pressed powder as it blended seamlessly without creating mess or looking patchy. ( Do check demo pictures later in the post)
VANILLA RATINGS 9.8/10
Makeup Revolution Ultra Strobe Balm is cream to powder formula that applies like non greasy cream and eventually sets up to non drying powder finish, Euphoria is gorgeous pealescent pale pink color with fine pink iridescence that imparts subtle pink glow to the skin. I mostly pair it up with my pink toned powder blushes. It blends easily to lovely seamless finish without looking patchy. I found my fingers are the best to apply it on top of my foundation.It adds natural radiance to the skin in single layer.Light does bounce off it beautifully in real . If you like strobing or a beginner then I think this is a fabulous highlighter to try out.
