For years now I’ve been a big fan of Makeup Revolution. Just recently I chatted about the Makeup Revolution Full Coverage Concealer here on my blog. However, recently the brand rebranded under the name Revolution Beauty. They still have the same great products, they’ve just got a new look and name. Oh and a whole boatload of new products. Recently I took a peak on their site and picked up a few bits and bobs to try out. So naturally, I thought I’d write a blog post on said products.
Retro Luxe Vault
The first of the Revolution Beauty products that I picked up was the Retro Luxe Vault which is a nifty box that contains 5 matte lip kits with a matching lip liner with each shade. Also in the set is 3 amazing metallic lip kits and 2 stunning gloss lip kits which also come with lip liners. The vault is basically a way to save money if you fancy buying multiple lip kits. The set costs £25 but individually all the products would cost you £50 if you bought them separately.
I’ve been really into my liquid lip products recently so I decided to get this and play around with the colours. I’m still making my way through the vault at the moment. However, I do really love the shade Echelon. Echelon is a dark nude that works surprisingly well with my pale complexion. I really like the formula as it applies really well to my lips. Plus it doesn’t feel quite as drying as other matte liquid lipsticks I’ve tried.
Pro Supreme Matte Lip Pigment in Foresight
The second of the Revolution Beauty products that I picked up was the Pro Supreme Matter Lip Pigment in Foresight. This lippy is simply gorgeous. It is a beautiful eye-catching deep berry pink shade that I absolutely adore. Out of all the matte lipsticks I’ve tried, I can hand on heart say that this has the best formula. It applies so smoothly, the applicator is easy to work with and it dries within five minutes. This means that you’re not waiting around for ages. However, at the same time, you have time to play around with if you need to do touch-ups. The lippy just feels so light, comfortable and not really drying at all on the lips.
In terms of wear time, it lasts really well and holds up through eating and drinking. When it does start to wear off I find the corners of my mouth are the first to fade. But it isn’t anything really noticeable as the product leaves a stain on the lips. All in all, I really want to check out more shades of the Pro Supreme Matte Lip Pigments.
Revolution Pro Full Cover Camouflage Concealer
The third of the Revolution Beauty products that I bought was the Revolution Pro Full Cover Camouflage Concealer. I’ve tried camouflage concealers in the past, with Veil Cover Cream being one of my all-time favourites. So that being said, I am aware of how full coverage they can be. I opted for the shade C3 which is a fair toned shade with a pink undertone to it. The shade is pretty good for my skin but I would have preferred it to be a tiny bit lighter. As for the coverage, it is pretty damn impressive. Is it as full coverage as Veil Cover Cream? Not quite in my eyes. That being said the two concealers do have totally different textures. The Revolution Beauty one is more of a really thick liquid whereas Veil is like a cream.
Basically, the Revolution Beauty offering is a total steal at just £5. It has really impressed me. Sure it is thick but it blends out well, sits nicely on the skin and doesn’t feel too greasy. It works wonders on spots and as a concealer for dark undereye circles but as the day goes on it can start to crease but this isn’t a major issue for me. All in all I really quite like the concealer.
Revolution Pro Foundation Drops
The fourth of the Revolution Beauty products I got was the Revolution Pro Foundation Drops in the shade F3. F3 is a shade aimed at those with pale complexions and pink undertones. For me, the shade works well but it does oxidise on me ever so slightly. That being said that is really my only negative about this foundation. Honestly, I have fallen in love with this product. For me it works super well with my dry skin, it blends evenly, covers my worries so well and leaves my skin looking pretty flawless. It doesn’t feel heavy and teamed up with my Beautyblender it blends like a dream.
In terms of the shade, I think I would have liked it to be lighter. This is mostly because when it oxidises on my skin it obviously ends up a little on the dark side. I can just get away with the shade so it’s not all bad. All in all, for just £7 this foundation is quite the bargain.
Nudes Collection Lipstick in Stripped and Buff
The fifth and sixth of the Revolution Beauty products I got were two of the Nudes Collection Lipsticks in Stripped and Buff. The first colour Stripped is the darker out of the two shades. Stripped is a matte brown nude. The lipstick has an easy to work with formula but it is a little on the drying side compared to the other lip products from the brand that I’ve recently picked up. As for Buff, it has the same formula as Stripped and the same sweet Vanilla scent. However, The colour is obviously different. Buff is pink matte nude.
Out of the two on paper Buff is right up my street. While I like the colour I find myself leaning more towards Stripped. I dunno what it is at the moment, I just seem to be liking a darker lip and Stripped ticks that box for me as the contrast of the colour and my pale skin just works super well. At £3 a pop both lipsticks are a steal.
Fast Base Stick Foundation
And the seventh and final Revolution Beauty product I picked up was the Fast Base Stick Foundation. I’ve not really had a proper chance to try this product out. However, from the brief chance I have had, I am on the fence about it. This Fast Base Stick Foundation is said to be an “easy-to-apply stick formula melts into skin, blending seamlessly to leave a fresh and dewy finish.” Now I have pretty dry skin at the moment and when I first used this it clung to everything and when first applied it had quite a chalky finish. However, as the day went on it did start to move around my face a little.
When I first applied it I did so simply with a damp Beautyblender. No primer, nada. So next time I’m going to obviously try the product with a primer and play around with the application. One thing I will say is that the shade F3 matched my skin tone really well. Not only that, the coverage was pretty darn impressive. It’s not something I’d wear every day as it is a little heavy. However, it provides pretty good full coverage which for £5 is pretty darn impressive.
