There’s no better time than Halloween to experiment with some fun and quirky makeup.

So, of course, I dove head first into a colourful highlighting palette.

The Revlon Photoready Galaxy Dream Holographic Highlighting Palette includes unconventional powder highlight shades. I wouldn’t classify them as “holographic” (I don’t think there’s any highlighter I’ve tried that is ACTUALLY holographic), but I’d definitely put some of them in the “duochrome” category.

The palette contains four highlighters and a big mirror. The shades don’t have names, so I’ll be referring to them by their placement in the compact.

The upper left shade is a pale white with a magenta shift. The formula was a bit chalky, so it took extra blending to really sink the product into the skin

The upper right shade is a  pastel green with a gold shift.

The lower left shade is lavender with a pink shift. The shade itself and the formula of this shade was fairly similar to the upper left shade.

The lower right shade is a periwinkle blue with a silver shift – definitely the most unique and noticeable shade in the quad.

As mentioned above, I found some of the formulas to be chalky, so they required extra blending. Although in-person I still found them to look chalky, on camera it looks like they settled into my skin quite nicely.

What I like about this palette is that the shades are pale enough to not be intimidating or too “out there”, but they’re different enough from your everyday pearl and champagne highlights to be a nice change from the ordinary. If you’re someone who is looking to switch up your highlight game or wants to try some fun highlights but get a variety of shades, be sure to stop by the Revlon aisle next time you’re at the drugstore.
