My thoughts on Revolution Pro…

Revolution Pro Review

 

Makeup Revolution’s new brand ‘Revolution Pro’ claims to make professional quality makeup at fab prices. I tried a few pieces and here’s what I think…

First off, the Revolution Pro Full Coverage Camouflage foundation and concealer both come in squeezy tubes – which I adore ! I find these are the easiest types of containers to travel with and you don’t waste as much product when you get to using up the final drops. However, both of these products do have a very thick (almost whipped) consistency, so you do have to get a relatively good squeeze to get some foundation/concealer out of the tube.

Revolution Pro Full Cover Camouflage Foundation – F3 | Link | £7.00

This is, without doubt, the worst foundation I have ever tried. For me, despite having dry skin, this started to slip and slide around my face around the three hour mark and it looked horrendously patchy.  I agree that it has super great coverage, but this also adds to its downfalls as it’s far more obvious when the product starts to fade. It’s a real shame too, because the shade F3 is really great for my skin tone (it’s pretty similar to Nars Mont Blanc).

Revolution Pro Full Cover Camouflage Concealer – C1 | Link | £5.00

This is a slightly different story than the foundation. I find that the camouflage concealer is far better – if you know how to work with it. The product is extremely thick and ‘moisturising,’ which means it has an incredibly dewy finish on the skin.  If you’ve ever used the it cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye concealer you’ll know what I’m talking about. If you don’t set this heavily, then it will just slide around for the entire day – however, if you use the tiniest (and I mean tiniest) amount, buff under the eyes and then leave for a little while and then remove excess product and then set – the result is high coverage and fab. This also covers spots and darker areas on the rest of the face well, but I picked a lighter shade to use under my eyes.

Revolution Pro 4K Highlighter Palette – Rose Gold | Link | £8.00

This is my favourite product of everything that I purchased! I prefer rosy toned highlights so I knew I’d be going for the rose gold palette rather then the straight up gold one, and although the shimmers are quite intense, there are some really unusual tones in this palette. I really adore the fourth shade as a blush topper (it’s too dark for me as anything else), or applied really lightly as a glowy blush – a la Nars Orgasm. The third shade along is almost a gold-pink duo chrome and is quite subtle and beautiful applied to the eye lid.  Above all else, my favourite thing about this palette is that it contains a pale white shade that I can mix with the others to get my perfect highlight !

Revolution Pro Supreme Matte Lip Pigment – Sailor | Link | £4.00

I was on a bit of a ‘I like blue lipstick’ kick when I bought these – and the shade ‘Sailor’ really isn’t the blue lipstick for me. I thought this would be a tad more navy as opposed to deep teal, and on pale skin this looks really bizarre! The formula isn’t bad at all though and it’s remarkably pigmented for such a dark colour.

Revolution Pro Supreme Matte Lip Pigment – Veil | Link | £4.00 

Veil is far easier to wear and dries to a matte finish which is really long lasting. I particularly enjoy wearing this with a cool toned eye look as this shade pulls rather peachy on my fair skin. For £4.00, this is a really a fab find and if there’s a few shades you think suit you I’d definitely say go for it !

Overall, my impressions are very mixed – I don’t feel too annoyed about the products that didn’t work as they weren’t very expensive and the highlighter palette is to die for! However, I’d love to hear what you thought of the foundation if you’ve tried it – it can’t just be me, right ?

Love,
