Revolution launched yet another sister brand back in June; XX Revolution. It was originally supposed to launch at the start of the year, but the brand decided to postpone the launch due to the global crisis. XX Revolution is super pricey compared to their main range, and is said to be the evolution of skincare and makeup into one.
The prices are off putting, but I decided to place an order, so I could see what the quality was like in order to write some reviews, but from the eight products I bought, I have to be honest I’m not wowed. The first product I bought was the XX Revolution ConcealXX Super Fixx Concealer, which is available in 55 shades, which is incredible.
XX Revolution ConcealXX Super Fixx Concealer
I know I’m not the only one that feels this way, but I hate the new brand’s name. Just this product alone has six X’s in it, and it’s ridiculous. Surely a brand name like Revolution X would be a lot more memorable? I don’t understand why the product name needs Xs in it too. It’s embarrassing to say aloud, and it’s not something that rolls off the tongue.
The XX Revolution ConcealXX Super Fixx Concealer is £10 which is expensive for a drugstore concealer, but it does contain way more product than any of the other Revolution concealers – 13.5ml to be exact. Which is almost double the size of the standard Conceal & Define Concealer.
I professed my love for the Revolution Conceal & Define Infinite Concealer, so I didn’t really need to try another Revolution concealer, but curiosity got the better of me, and I had to see what was so special about this expensive concealer.
“Let’s cut to the base, this concealer is a gotta-have for longwear, life proof coverage. The stretchable formula conceals and brightens skin, covering blemishes, dark circles and redness, with absolutely no flashback. The unique under-eye hugging flexible applicator gives one swipe impact for a flawless satin finish, so you can flex your complexion. Infused with Vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid to treat your skin.“
I bought the Revolution Conceal & Define Infinite Concealer in the shade CX0.5 as 0.5 is the shade I opt for in their base products. I would always try and swatch instore wherever possible, as the shades do differ from product to product and C0.5 isn’t the same in all of their concealers.
This XX Revolution ConcealXX Super Fixx Concealer offers very high coverage but it makes my skin look hideous. I included this close-up shot of the swatches on the back of my hand, so you can see how cakey and heavy it looks on my skin. It clings to every single line in my hand, and it’s even worse on the face. It makes my pores look like the surface of a golf ball. It’s such a terrible concealer and it’s extremely drying too.
I’m absolutely thrilled to have wasted £10 on this XX Revolution ConcealXX Super Fixx Concealer, but it’s easily the worst concealer Revolution have created to date, even more so than the £1 concealer sticks they started with. The only people raving about this concealer are those that were sent it in PR. If you look for reviews that bought it themselves, you’ll see similar negative reviews.
I’ve never tried a concealer that creates texture and flaws that don’t even exist. For a range that’s supposed to be Revolution’s best, I’ve found the whole range to be very disappointing, and I’ll share more reviews very soon.
