Hey lovelies, I hope you’re all warm and well!
You guys seem to really like my Revolution x (insert youtuber name here) reviews. Back at it again but this time, the Imogenation hightlight to the moon palette. If you’re a fan of Imogen then you’ll know see loves a good highlight so I was excited to see what her face palette was all about. When I first heard the name, I thought the entire palette was going to be highlighters. Was pleasently suprised when I saw some contour shades in there too. It’s nice to have a mixture of shades in a palette and there seems to be a shade for most skin tones which I like. We all about the inclusion over here! Let’s not babble on too much, I’ll get on with it now.
Imogenation hightlight to the moon palette – Shades
As you can see, the palette includes three matte highlight shades. Three contour shades and three bright highlighters. I haven’t seen much of that in palettes so it was refreshing to see. Now there isn’t many shades I can actually use in this palette. Some are a little dark, some are too warmed toned. That’s perfectly okay because the lightest contour shade worked well for me and there’s two highlights that compliment my skin.
Imogenation hightlight to the moon palette – Formula
I’m not gonna lie to you. I expected a little more. The powders were really dry and almost too powdery (if that makes sense). Using a little fix+ on my brush, I managed to get a decent result from the shade “Limited addition” but “Angelface” was a disaster for me. In the pan the shade is gorgeous (and my favourite of the lot) but it literally done nothing. Pretty much dusted off my face when used dry, and when used with some fix+ it sunk into my pores and looked quite patchy and chunky. Obviously, a little upset it doesn’t work for me. Wish the formulation wasn’t so dry and the shimmer was a little finer.
I know that revolution do some incredible highlighters and I had really high hopes for this because I know Imogen put a lot into this palette. Unfortunately, it wasn’t right for me. Sometimes that happens, annoying but it is what it is. Not everything is gonna work for everyone.
Imogenation hightlight to the moon palette – Swatches
From swatches, I thought this palette was gonna be great. They all seemed to swatch okay. Looked even and blendable. Not to powdery. It was the application that let this down. Didn’t notice much fall out from swatches but when it came to using a brush, fall out central. Obviously finger swatches aren’t the best way to showcase how a product performs because we wouldn’t use our finger to sculpt out faced. Maybe I’m being a little picky, but I just wanted more, y’know. Especially as the Imogenation eye shadow palette swatched and performed so well!
Imogenation hightlight to the moon palette – Final thoughts
Not sure this is a palette I’m going to reach for much. Yes “Limited addition” is a gorgeous highlighter, I’d use this more if it was a single pan. The contour shades are good though. There’s no doubt the idea behind this palette is great. All the face powders you need in a pretty sleek palette, who wouldn’t want that. I’m sure that these could work well for someone with different skin type and texture to me. For a tenner, it would be worth picking up and giving it a go. Please do let me know if you’ve any tips on how this could work better for me. It isn’t often I’m disappointed in a product and it isn’t a nice feeling. Especially when I’m such a fan of Imogen!
That’s all from me lovelies.
