Keeping up with the new Revolution launches is quite the mission, but whenever they launch a new primer, I’m instantly intrigued. I know many people are lipstick addicts or foundation addicts, but my kryptonite has to be primers and eyeshadow palettes – I simply cannot resist them. R
evolution launched a whole new Glow sub brand a few weeks ago, which features body oils, body shimmers, an eyeshadow palette and more. The Revolution Glow Beam Dream Illuminating Primer is just one of the products in their Glow range, and I knew I had to try it.
Revolution Glow Beam Dream Illuminating Primer
The Revolution Glow Beam Dream Illuminating Primer is £6 and contains 18ml which really surprised me. Primers are never under 20ml, and typically they’re around the 30ml mark. So for a product marketed as being a primer for the face and body, and only containing 18ml is really stingy.
If a product is designed for use on the body, brands give you more product as you obviously have a much larger surface area to work with, but this tiny 18ml tube is not going to last for very long at all.
This Revolution Glow Beam Dream Illuminating Primer is described as being a brightening cream featuring a light pink iridescence to add an extra glow to the skin. The primer is packaged within a rose gold, metallic, squeezy plastic tube with a narrow nozzle.
It’s easy to squeeze primer from the tube, and the primer is a white cream that smells like sun cream. It’s obviously scented to resemble coconut, but it’s not an authentic coconut scent like you get with their Revolution Pro Prime and Hydrate Primer. After massaging the primer into the skin, it leaves behind pinky red glitter.
It’s supposed to feature ‘light pink iridescence’ but it’s a bright pinky red glitter. It’d be much prettier if it was a pale gold shimmer like most radiant primers, but it’s just not very flattering on the skin. It feels nice in terms of formula, but it’s just the pink glitter that’s so strange as it doesn’t look like it should be on the skin.
It looks as if I’ve had serious eyeshadow fall out or something. I couldn’t recommend this primer as I dislike how it looks on my skin, but Revolution do many other lovely primers, and most contains more ml for your money too.
