Makeup Revolution Haul and First Impressions

19 April 2018

Hooray for being so late to the bandwagon that it's already 300 miles down the road, but, look who has finally got their hands on some of the new Revolution Pro range. The other day I randomly woke up in the middle of the night, had a quick twitter scroll you know, as you do, and saw that someone had tweeted that all the Revolution products were back in stock on the Superdrug website. So, this 2am Twitter scroll rapidly became an order of some new products. Given that they were on 3 for 2, it would've been just plain rude not to. The only pain was that I hadn't had a chance to swatch all the products, so when it came to picking shades it was all just a stab in the dark, to be honest, but I don't think I've done too badly...

The item that inspired this haul was, of course, the Conceal and Define Concealer. Having heard so much about it, particularly the huge collective scream of excitement from the blogosphere after it was released, I figured I needed to give it a go. I got mine in the shade C, as it's fair to say I'm pretty pale, and it retails at a tidy £4. Now, I've only used this a few times so far, but I'm not entirely convinced it deserved the huge outbreak it received... It's a nice, full coverage concealer, but I wouldn't say it was life-changing by any stretch of the imagination. That being said, I haven't used it for very long so perhaps it'll grow on me and I'll become an absolute convert...

I also picked up the Supreme Highlighter Palette in Metals. I've become a bit of a highlighting fiend recently, so when I spotted this palette I decided that I absolutely needed it. It costs £6 and the three shades in it are gorgeous. They're really buttery in texture, but sadly not the most pigmented of products I've ever tried. But, overall definitely get a thumbs up from me.

Bright Barbie Pink - who'd have thought a year ago that a palette full of this shade would have made it into my basket? The eyeshadow palette in question is the Re-Loaded Palette in Newtrals 2. This is only £4 and I am so impressed with it. The eyeshadows are pigmented and blend out really well. They're not as soft and buttery as my trusty Urban Decay ones, but they're great nonetheless. They also last all day without a primer, so that's another win in my opinion. 

With the sudden increase in interest in liquid highlighters, I figured I ought to give one a go myself. I mean, I used to use Benefit's High Beam back in the day thanks to a generously sized sample in Glamour Magazine (What a great time that was!), and really liked it. I got the Revolution Liquid Highlighter in Champagne, and it's really pretty and retails for £6. I know it's a bit of a trend to apply products like these all over your face before your foundation, but it's safe to say I won't be replicating that trend. This gal has a shiny enough face as it is. 

The other two products that make up this haul are the Luxury Banana Powder and the Fast Base Foundation Stick in F2. I'm yet to try either of them, but I'm expecting big things from the latter. It's had quite a lot of mixed reviews but I'm excited to give it a go. They were both £5 each, making them absolute steals if they're as good as anticipated...

So there we have it, a rather sizeable haul of new products for someone that buys new makeup at the same rate that students iron their clothes (i.e. never). With the 3 for 2, this lot came to £21 which I certainly won't be complaining about! Once I've tried the products a little more thoroughly I'll most definitely be putting in my two pennies worth...


  1. I recently bought the Revolution concealer and can confirm it is a life changer. That palette is absolutely gorgeous AND it’s only £4?!?!? Think I need to do a revolution haul now, especially with the 3 for 2 offer that’s on!!!
