Revolution is a brand taking the world by storm. No I don’t mean that dingy nightclub in every town but instead the serious beauty company. Revolution have blow the UK away with their low prices and high quality. Their products are available in Superdrug and are now rivalling the likes of MUA and Barry M. They are finally a brand the US are jealous of the UK for! Seriously though if any Americans want to set up a Revolution – Bath and Body Works mailing situation hit me up.
The first product I bought from them is one of their matte lipsticks. This feels so creamy and light on the lips but is also matte. Matte lipsticks are so trendy and these ones from Revolution would be perfect additions to your collection. I bought mine in the colour Chauffeur. It is a dark sort of muted pink. The lipstick is so opaque and one swipe covers your lips well. I also feel like it has a pretty good wear time but can go a little patchy. I don’t think it would be great for a dinner party as you’d probably end up eating it all! My only complaint with this lipstick is that it isn’t stuck into the case very well. On my first use it snapped straight off but this could have been because of transportation and many other factors. It is of course still useable.
I also bought this highlighting palette. Two of the shades are creams and two are powders. Although you can use them independently they do look good together. The creams and powders can be layered to give that I-can-see-you-highlight-from-outer-space kind of look. They go on smoothly and don’t feel too chunky. These shades would probably also work as glowy blushers too so that is something I’ll have to report back about. The casing isn’t particularly sturdy and a mirror would be nice but for the price it is very fair. I tend just to apply the creams with my fingers and the powder with a fan brush but I’m not sure if I’m doing that right?? Please do let me know! I reach for this palette all the time and even my sister loves it.
The prices on these items are also very good. £3 for the lipstick and don’t forget there is student discount on top of that. Money saving tips!!! The palette comes in at a meagre £8 so I’d say that’s an excuse to treat yourself!
