It’s no secret that I love to try a new beauty product from makeup to skincare I am willing to give it a go. One brand that I keep trying is Revolution, this is brand that covers a lot of names but have some of the best high street dupes.
So here is a review of some beauty pieces that I have been trying out and what I think about them.
First up is the Revolution Pro Crease Proof Concealer, I featured this in my Feelunique haul video. On first look it ticked all the boxes the packaging looked amazing, it boasted full crease proof coverage and it was available in my regular colour. So what best to test this product than at a day at work if it could last me a 12 hour shift then I had found the holy grail. Unfortunately on application the formula was thick (I mean thick!) I struggled to get the product out and when I did after much effort I only managed to get a little. Let me tell you though a little goes a long way once I had managed to blend the product out I quickly realised that it was too light for me so I was lucky I had my bronzer at hand to style it out. I did notice that it did highlight some of my dry spots on my skin but boy did it brighten my under eye. However three hours into a shift it had creased and moved leaving me with patches of product so maybe not as long lasting I think I may give this a miss next time.
Another new Revolution product that I featured in my Feelunique Haul was the Revolution Pro Goddess Glow Finishing Powder. This product looks amazing and let me tell you it is! It does exactly what it says giving you gorgeous glowing complexion that looks so natural with a tan this product would just pop! I love the packaging it looks more expensive and the puff and mesh insert allows you to not pick up to much product. I couldn't boast about this product enough I can't wait to use this coming into the holiday season!
As a girl that suffers with an oily complexion powders are my best friend and I have found myself trying a lot of different powders over the years however coming out on top is the Revolution Translucent Baking Powder. Even though I have been trying this product out for a while I don't seem to have made a dent in the product! It's easy to apply (though a little messy), lasts for ages and really mattifies my skin giving me a bright finish. My only complaint with this product is the smell, it seems to have a heavy synthetic smell which is a little of putting at times.
A primer has become a major part of my makeup routine as working 13 hour shifts I need my makeup to last. I have been trialling the Revolution Pore Blur Primer over the last month and I seem to have a love hate relationship with this product. The consistency of this product reminds me of the Pore-Professional from Benefit but without the long lasting results. I find this a good product for an average day makeup look but if you wanting something long lasting to get you through your work day or a night out I would look elsewhere. This product is good at minimising pores but that's about it, it doesn't sit too well under makeup and moves throughout the day making the pore minimising effect useless. I don't think this primer will make its way back into my shopping basket any time soon.
I had to save the best until last, I am always on the lookout for a good concealer and this one is amazing! The Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer is a product I find I just can't live without! It is often compared to the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer but having not tried that product I can't really make that comparison. I find that this concealer not only offers full coverage and brightening abilities it lasts all day and sits well on the skin. It is easy to blend and almost gives your under eye an airbrushed finish. This is a product that I have repurchased many times already and will continue to do so!
As always these are just my opinions on these products and everyone will differ, Revolution to me is a good brand at an affordable price and though I may not have gotten one with some of the products I do still have my firm favourites. This brand is one that is growing and evolving and I am excited for what is to come!
