If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ll know how much I love lip gloss so when Revolution launched their Lip Toppers, I knew I needed to try at least one. I’ve had a real love/hate relationship with the Revolution products I’ve tried in 2018 when I used to love almost everything. I don’t know if formulas or manufacturing methods have changed as they’ve gone more global but their products don’t always wow me so I don’t try as much as I used to as I don’t want to waste my money. The Revolution Jewel Collection Lip Topper was something I knew I’d wear even if I didn’t love it as you can’t go too wrong with a lip gloss in my opinion. Yes you can get sticky glosses, but sticky glosses last longer on the lips so I decided on the Revolution Jewel Collection Lip Topper in the shade Exquisite and it was only £4.
The Revolution Jewel Collection Lip Topper was launched as part of their Jewel Collection. They launched a Jewel Collection for Christmas 2017 but it was a limited edition collection and was discontinued shortly after Christmas so I hope they don’t do the same for the 2018 Jewel Collection.
The Jewel Collection featured Jewel Jelly Highlighters; one of which I reviewed and hated, so I didn’t have high hopes for the Revolution Jewel Collection Lip Topper in all honesty, incase the formula was similar to that of the jelly highlighter but luckily for me, the formula is amazing.
“Revolution Jewel Collection Lip Toppers bring bling to your lip look. In three transformative shades, these sheer, non-sticky glosses are packed with stunning shimmer to switch up your favourite lipstick.
Wear alone or layer over your favourite lipstick for a high shine finish and colour shifting duo chrome effect.”
There’s three different lip topper shades, just like there are three jelly highlighter shades with a gold shade called Luxurious, a rose gold shade called Exquisite and a silver shade called Fortune.
I decided upon Exquisite from the swatches I’d seen online, but they all looked quite similar with clear bases containing different coloured shimmer and sparkle particles. The packaging is nice for a £4 gloss with an elongated, pentagon clear plastic tube with a foil effect coloured lid to match the shade inside.
I’ve included swatches of the Revolution Jewel Collection Lip Topper with my normal lens, and my macro lens to hopefully show the different coloured sparkles. Revolution describe Exquisite as being a duochrome sheer pink with cool silver shimmer but I have to disagree as there’s absolutely no duochrome effect in the shimmer or base. Exquisite contains very pale pink shimmer particles, and iridescent lilac sparkle particles which don’t get me wrong, is very pretty but it’s not duochrome or silver.
I would be tempted to check the other two shades instore incase the photos don’t do them justice like they haven’t with Exquisite. I honestly think the formula of the lip topper is on par with the Jouer Lip Toppers which are £13+ each, and I like that they’re sparkly enough to show up on bare lips but they’re even prettier layered over lipstick or lip liner too. I love lip gloss anyway but even if you aren’t a lip gloss fan, I really recommend trying these lip toppers as they’re fab for £4.
