The Rundown on the New XX Revolution by Revolution Beauty

Revolution has released a brand under its main brand Makeup Revolution, called XX Revolution and while it may sound X-rated, it looks fabulous and is for everyone!

The sub-brand started with a few face palettes, blush palettes and bronzers, but it’s grown to a whole lot more than that.

They now have eyeshadows, full-coverage concealers, matte and glow foundations in 55 shades, skin-perfecting primers and setting sprays, highlighters, bronzers, and blushers for every skin tone.

XX Revolution is all about the evolution of makeup and skincare into one! We love that concept and we’re not the only ones, it’s a growing trend with many brands realising that people want makeup that’s good for the skin!

XX Revolution Collection

When it comes to Makeup Revolution, you know you’re getting good value for money. The products are affordable, yet do the job well! XX Revolution is no different.

While we can’t cover all of the products in the XX Revolution line (because there are that many!), we’ve chosen to review a few of our favourite makeup products, but the collection is huge, so be sure to check it out!

CompleXXion Face Palettes 

The XX Revolution CompleXXion Face Palettes are a one-kit powder contour and glow face fix for the easiest colour-schemed looks.

It comes in four palettes, each has 3 shades; a matte bronzer, an illuminating highlighter and a shimmering blush. Everything you need for a face palette!

Honestly, I’m obsessed with the packaging, it’s so cute, feels amazing quality and gives off a slightly retro feel to it. A bonus point is the full backline mirror that it comes with!

The four CompleXXion Face Palettes are:

Elemental – Geared towards our pale girls (yay!) who want a controlled glow. It has a muted shade of warm-toned peach bronzer, a champagne-toned highlighter, and shimmer dusty rose blush.

This particular one goes on very buttery, with very little fallout! They have some serious pigment on these shades so be prepared. Not only are they highly pigmented, but they are also extremely easy to blend!

Gravitate – This palette is for mid-toned, olive skin types who prefer a touchup to their already-tanned skin. It’s a flattering palette that will add a glow without overdoing it.

It contains a warm-toned chocolate bronzer, a cream-coloured shimmer highlighter, and a flushed coral blush.

Intrinsic – For the ultimate summer bronze look, this trio imitates the beach aura naturally achieved by spending some time under the sun. It has a warm-toned light tan bronzer, a deep golden coloured highlighter, and a shimmering peachy blush.

Dimension – This is a must-try shade for a defined contour on deep skin. It has a deep brown matte bronzer, a copper highlighter with pink undertones, and a bright pink, fuchsia blush.

Bronzer Powder 

These bronzers are bestsellers and it’s easy to see why! Available in 10 dreamy shades, they have the perfect coloured undertones for any skin. Not to mention the beautiful packaging!

The XX Revolution Bronzer Powder is a range of ultra-deep to super-fair bronzers to give instant warmth to any skin tone. They are vegan, very pigmented and buildable. You can use these bronzers on your face and body for the ultimate glowing tanned skin!

XX Revolution Bronzer Powder

These bronzers come in ten skin-true, creamy satin-matte shades:

  • Aphotic – Matte deep almond
  • Chaos – Matte caramel
  • Command – Matte cool brown
  • Demo – Matte chestnut
  • Morose – Matte golden bronze
  • Nocturnal – Matte deep brown
  • Phantom – Matte tan
  • Spectre – Matte warm russet
  • Vestige – Matte warm tawny
  • Vignette – Matte mocha

The shades, Demo, Morose, and Vignette suit my fair skin the most. Demo is a beautiful brown mauve that pairs well with my everyday neutral eye makeup. Morose gives me a cool-toned true tan bronze that doesn’t turn into an orange look.

The shade vignette I found to be THE bronzer colour to use all around my face and on my contour areas. It looks like a very natural shadow for my fair skin.

It leaves a lovely sheen to your face, not glowy like a highlighter, but more like a skin-finishing powder. Love it!

Skin Glow Tinted Booster Fever

This is the ultimate glow booster, and it reminds me a lot of the Elf Cosmetics Halo Glow Filter! Available in 5 shades, it is lightweight, yet buildable, giving you the option of how much coverage you want.

Infused with Niacinamide & Papaya extract, it has skincare benefits that help to balance and even out the skin.

The glow booster can be worn alone or under makeup for a bronzed glow. You can also wear it as a subtle highlighter. It has pearlescent particles giving it a gorgeous glow!

XXpress Quad Eyeshadow Palette XXcite

These quad eyeshadow palettes are available in 9 variations. Each one has a different color story.

The palettes are a dupe of the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Quads which are huge bestsellers but to be honest, so are these Quad Eyeshadow Palettes by XX Revolution.

Everything about these palettes is on point! The quality is great, the colour stories are gorgeous and the palettes are small enough to take with you on the go!

These palettes are also ideal for those who get overwhelmed by palettes with too many shades, which is apparently very common! I get it, too many shades can be confusing, but for makeup addicts like me, the more shades the better:)

XXact Eyeliner Pencil

Finding good-quality, colourful eyeliners that are also affordable is no easy feat. But once again, Revolution Beauty has managed it!

The XX Revolution XXact Eyeliner Pencils come in 8 shades with typical eyeliner shades as well as a few bold, out-there ones!

The liners are soft, creamy and highly pigmented. Use them for a hard eyeliner line or a soft, smudged line. Either way, they apply beautifully and smoothly.

The shades are:

  • Blazer – Cobalt Blue
  • Chalk – Pure White
  • Chestnut – Warm Brown
  • Dazed – Gunmetal Grey
  • Exposed – Luminous Pearl
  • Kohl – Classic Black
  • Camo – Moss Green
  • Regal – Metallic rust

Final Thoughts

I love the XX Collection by Makeup Revolution, it has a fun twist to the classic Makeup Revolution brand and is just as affordable! Check out their website to see the full range of makeup because it’s huge and has something for everyone!
