What to Buy From Revolution!

Over the last few weeks, I've decided to grow a Revolution collection. I initially had my eye on their concealer and foundation stick, but when unleashed to their full collection, a lot of their products caught my eye.

Here, I'll tell you what I really recommend from their range. All the products I have here, is not everything I purchased, just some of my faves, alongside a small review!

I'll start with the Revolution products, then go onto Revolution Pro.

I wrote about the I Heart Makeup Revolution Rose Gold palette already, here. I included swatches and similarities between the Huda Beauty Rose Gold palette, and I was somewhat shocked at the outcome, so make sure you have a look. Overall, this palette is definitely worth it if you didn't get the chance to get the HB rose gold, as that's now discontinued. You can purchase this palette here.

Can we take a minute to appreciate these beauties? Both times I've used these products I've been stopped to ask what I'm wearing.. numerous times a day. They are bloody amazing! They're called Flawless foils, and can be applied wet with the intensifying primer that comes with it, or dry. I used them wet. The only qualm I had with this product was it came with no instructions, so I didn't know how to use it lol. At first, I put the intensifying primer on my eyelid and then tried to put the shadow on top.. but that didn't work! So then I realised I had to put the intensifying primer on my brush, and then dip my brush into the product.. at least.. that's how I think it's meant to be applied! Whatever though, this product is amazing.

The colours here are Rival and Retreat.

The Revolution X Soph Palette. I recently started watching Sophie on Youtube, and I found out one of her shades are named after Taylor Swift's songs, and of course I fell in love with her instantly and went and bought her palette. Apart from that, this palette Soph created is AMAZING. There are so so so many different types of looks you can create with this shade range, I can't believe how good it is!

This Revolution palette is lovely. It's called the Reloaded palette and was one of the early purchases of my Revolution haul. As much as I like it and will still use it, I don't think it's a necessity as Revolution have a lot more fun palettes than this one! But if you're looking for something like this, it's great as the pan size is huge. As you can see. the orange shade broke. My own fault.. as I was taking a picture of all my palettes.. I tried to carry all of my make up back to my make up station at once, and dropped EVERYTHING. Luckily, the orange shade was the only product to take a hit.

Yep, the hype is real around the Fast Base Foundation Stick. My shade is F8, and I really like this for a day to day foundation stick for only £5. I'd advise to use a good primer for a long lasting effect!

If you've not heard about this product, you're living under a rock. These are sold out in most SuperDrug, it's hilarious.  Mine's shade C4. A lot of people are comparing to Tarte Shape Tape - I do love this product, but it's no Shape Tape!

& now onto Revolution Pro!

Revolution Pro Rose Gold 4K Highlighter Palette. This is bloody worth the £8. The glow is reaaaaaal. The shades are fun, and I preferred the shades to this more than the Gold highlighter palette!

While we're on the topic of highlighters, the Revolution Pro Supreme Highlighter in Metals is just as good. I really liked the shades of this one, but there are 3 others to choose from! They are lovely!

Revolution pro have brought out a lot of palettes with names on it recently, and I could not decide which one to go for. They're called Regeneration palettes, and this one is in Goldmine! The reason I decided on this one is for the Blue, and I don't have these shades in one palette. The other palettes I felt like were palettes I usually always go for.. but this one was slightly different. So I went for it!

So these smaller palettes caught my eye a lot. I was stood in Superdrug undecided on which palette out of this range (which is called Supreme eyeshadow) to go for. At one point, I nearly picked them all up, but controlled myself! I went for the Bewitch Palette as it had the most interesting shimmers! I really love this palette, as it looks pretty and the colours are amazing. (I failed at taking a nice picture of the palette, so heres the swatches with the palette in the background). One thing I noticed about the last colour in the palette was that it had a very gold overspray over it.. but when actually used it was this dusty green shade with gold glitter in it (the last swatch on my hand). I was a bit shocked as I was trying to make a gold halo eye, but hey.. it's still nice.

Foundation Drops in Shade F10. I prefer this formula over the Foundation Stick, it's amazing. I actually bought this before the 'heatwave' and now I'm too tanned for it.. so I'll be going back for a shade darker!

The Foundation Mixer Lightening drops have potential! I used this with my Huda Beauty foundation which is ridiculously dark for me.. and it lightened it right up! I'm so glad I bought this, and for £6 it's so affordable compared to other lightening drops on the market!

Revolution Pro Supreme Matte Lip Pigments. Oh my gosh. I have about 7 of these (but I couldn't find the others for the picture) and I am OBSESSED. There is no other formula like this in drugstore that I could ever compare this to. It's AMAZING. I haven't stopped wearing these since I purchased them. And for £4? Stop. They're super pigmented yet don't flake and don't feel caked on the lips! They take a while to dry down, but when they do.. they do not budge. And they have SoOoOoOo many shades. I tried the Revolution Luxe lip kits and was so disappointed in the formula of that, but don't fret - you need to get these guyz.

Wow, this was super long. But I hope it helps, please let me know if you want me to go into more depth on any of these products!
& Make sure you make use of Superdrug's promo that seems to be there most of the time of 3 for 2 Make up!
