I am a big fan of the Revolution Pro Supreme Hold Finishing Spray which is the first Makeup Revolution makeup setting spray I’ve liked, so I decided to try their new Revolution Hyaluronic Fix Hydrating and Plumping Makeup Fixing Spray as I like a more hydrating setting spray. The Revolution Hyaluronic Fix is £6 and contains 100ml of product whilst the Revolution Pro Supreme Hold Finishing Spray is also £6 for 100ml. I was photographing the Revolution Hyaluronic Fix and happened to check the ingredients and thought I’d check the ingredients of the Revolution Pro Supreme Setting Spray to see how they compared. I was really surprised to discover their ingredients are identical except for one ingredient…
Revolution Hyaluronic Fix Hydrating and Plumping Makeup Fixing Spray:
Aqua, Alcohol Denat., Propylene Glycol, Benzyl Alcohol, Amp-Acrylates/Allyl Methacrylate Copolymer, Sodium Hyaluronate, Dehydroacetic Acid, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Retinyl Palmitate, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil, Panthenol, Sorbitol, Linseed Acid, Aesculus Hippocastanum Seed Extract, Sodium Benzoate, BHT.
“Plump, hydrate and set makeup in place all day with Revolution Hyaluronic Fixing Spray. Contains Sodium Hyaluronate, which has the ability to penetrate skin and hold onto water, resulting in hydrated and plump skin.“
Revolution Pro Supreme Hold Finishing Spray:
Aqua, Alcohol Denat., Propylene Glycol, Amp-Acrylates/Allyl Methacrylate Copolymer, Benzyl Alcohol, Dehydroacetic Acid, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Aesculus Hippocastanum Seed Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Retunyl Palmitate, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil, Panthenol, Sorbital, Linseed Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Tocopherol.
“For your longest wearing looks, set makeup with Revolution PRO Supreme Hold Finishing Spray. Spray from arms length to create a mist over the face that helps to lock down your look and prevent makeup slip.”
It really bothers me that a brand can put the same formula in two differently packaged bottles to take advantage of their fan base. It doesn’t matter if one is under their ‘pro’ name, and one under their main name, they’re the same product and sold as two separate products and that’s not OK. I have been a really big Revolution fan from day one but this doesn’t sit well with me, and I don’t think it’s acceptable to do this to their customers.
One ingredient extra doesn’t warrant a whole new product, and it’s unfair on their customers that purchase their new launches. This isn’t the first time Revolution have done this as they have THREE versions of an ABH Modern Renaissance dupe; Chocolate Elixir Palette, the Iconic Vitality and Revolution Pro Restoration Palette.
As far as setting sprays go, my review is exactly the same as its duplicate product which you can read here, but I can’t recommend it as I’m not OK with the marketing techniques involved in bottling the same product and selling it as two different products. I don’t know the legal implications of doing this, but it’s pretty shady behaviour.
