I feel like Revolution Beauty are pure killing the makeup game at the moment. New releases being dropped all over the shop whilst rebranding their whole entire business. Now personally, I prefer Revolution Beauty a lot more than Makeup Revolution, something about the name screams more professionalism. A side brand from the company though is Revolution Pro. They claim to make professional makeup at affordable prices for all. Curiosity definitely got the better of me and I decided to pick a couple bits up in a recent haul and test them out.
Revolution Pro Foundation Drops – F1
My second favourite drugstore foundation (obviously behind my holy grail that is the CYO Lifeproof Long Lasting Foundation). Because I suffer from horrendous dry skin on my face I’m always looking for them dewy finish foundations that don’t cling to my dry spots or flake away on my nose. The foundation itself has a runny consistency and has a dropper applicator. I tend to use a damp beauty blender with a bit of fixing spray on it to apply this. A couple of drops and it gives me a medium coverage. It’s a buildable foundation so a couple more and I’m in full coverage heaven.
You literally cannot feel that you have foundation on when you got this, its so lightweight and leaves a lovely natural glow to the skin. Powders and creams layer on top of this beautifully and I highly recommend this to anyone else with dry skin. It comes in 18 different shades with different undertones. I obviously use F1 which is the lightest shades because I’m practically translucent.
Revolution Pro Prime Oil
This primer works differently with different foundations. One day will be a good makeup day where it all stays put while other days, everything just slides off. I’ve found that this primer works better with thicker foundations, it works especially well with my Milani 2-in-1 foundation which is extremely thick. With dewy foundations, not so much. It’s such a lovely primer for dry skin though, it doesn’t leave behind a greasy feeling and melts beautifully into the skin. It leaves my base makeup looking flawless and gives me a glow I need. It’s such a versatile product as well, you can use this on your hair! I was a bit skeptical at first after I read someone else try it out but it leaves the ends of my hair silky smooth. A must for those dreaded split ends.
Available for £7.00 from Superdrug and Revolution Beauty.
Revolution Pro Regeneration Palette – Trends Mischief Maker
I was undecided whether or not to pick up this palette or the super colourful matte palette but I feel like I made the right choice. The only issue I have is there’s not enough matte shades to build up than transition colour in the crease. If you were to create a super colourful look you would have to purchase the matte palette to go with this. Saying that though, every single shade in this palette is super pigmented and them shimmers really do pack a punch on the lid. The shades are a lot brighter in person than in the pictures on the Revolution Beauty website though. If some of the colourful shimmers were mattes instead then this would be that perfect colourful palette to play around with.
Revolution Pro Supreme Pigment Dip Eyeliner in White
Worst. Eyeliner. Brush. Ever. I’m not even exaggerating. I’ve been wanting a white eyeliner for ages to try something different to my usual black wings. But the brush in this pot is as hard as a plank of wood. There’s no flexibility to the tip and it’s far too difficult to create a wing or even a line without poking yourself in the eye. It also drags any product you have on your eyelid as well. If the brush style was different, this product would actually be decent. But that damn brush just lets it down. I mean, the liner itself is somewhat pigmented but doesn’t dry down completely opaque. One good thing about this is it doesn’t crack at the first sign of movement so with a different brush and layering up the liner twice over, you can create a striking white wing. Only issue here is the opening of the pot is too small to pop a different brush in.
Revolution Pro Supreme Highlighter in Gold
If you love a blinding highlight (like me) then definitely pick this trio up. The left is a champagne highlight, middle is a golden highlight whilst the right hand shade is a lovely rose gold. I purely bought this for the shade on the left as I don’t have a highlighter like it. It’s perfect for my pale complexion whilst giving me that glow. The golden shade in the middle is perfect to create a golden eye look, using it to create a halo eye. My only issue with these highlighters is they are slightly crumbly to the touch. When I first swatched them it felt like it was just crumbling away under my fingertip. But with a light hand and a brush this doesn’t show on the skin. I feel this trio is perfect for every skin tone and versatile, they don’t just have to be used as a highlighter.
Revolution Pro Supreme Matte Lip Pigment in Semblance
This is such a lovely formula! Their lip pigments come in a range of colours but I decided on Semblance in the end as its a gorgeous pinky nude. It has a velvety texture and it didn’t dry down my lips when applied. However it’s not completely transfer proof for a good 30/40 minutes. This is due to the velvet texture though. Once dried down completely it was a good 3/4 hours before I noticed some wear and it did bunch up in the corners of my mouth but the texture makes it easy to reapply on top. The applicator is like a paddle brush which can be slightly tricky to work with. I’m just so used to doefoot applicators. The packaging looks so professional as well which I love! You can see the colour of the lipstick through the glass windows which are right the way around the tube. Definitely need to pick up a few more shades!
Altogether I’m really liking some of Revolution Pro’s makeup range and interested to try out more products. Just not their eyeliners, unless I want to lose an eye for £3.00!
