XX Revolution is Revolution’s newest sister brand, and the brand launched last summer. It’s marketed as being a brand which combines makeup and skincare all-in-one, and the packaging is very luxe. It’s almost like another version of Revolution Pro, except it’s targeted at a younger demographic.
XX Revolution NeXXt Dew Glass Gloss Stixx
I’ve tried a few XX Revolution products, and they’re very hit and miss, but when I saw the XX Revolution NeXXt Dew Glass Gloss Stixx, I couldn’t wait to try it, as it’s marketed as being a translucent highlighter. I love the RMS Living Luminizer, which is a translucent cream highlighter, but it’s £36, so I’ve been on the hunt for a budget friendly alternative.
“It’s the dewy skin for us. Our XX Revolution Nexxt Dew collection is the next generation of dewy skin essentials, enhanced with Cloudberry, Cranberry Seed Oil and Rose Hip Seed Oil – meaning they feel as good as they look.
We obsessed over the ingredients for this range. Cloudberry, an artic berry known for being able to survive in freezing temperatures, helps to moisturise and soothe the skin (yes pls). Cranberry Extract is rich in antioxidants to help soften the skin, and Rose Hip Seed Oil is a dry and silky oil rich in Vitamin C, meaning it’s gr8 for helping leave the skin feeling balanced and G L O W I N G. Dream team.“
The XX Revolution NeXXt Dew Glass Gloss Stixx is £12, and is available in two different shades; ClimaXX and PerspeXX. I ordered the PerspeXX shade via the Boots website, and they sent me the wrong shade which is really annoying, especially as I knew this shade wouldn’t work for me, but that’s not Revolution’s fault.
The packaging is really pretty, with a metallic pink metal casing which features an iridescent shift. It’s a twist-up solid stick, which you can supposedly use before foundation, on the top of foundation or on bare skin.
The XX Revolution NeXXt Dew Glass Gloss Stixx has a greasy consistency, rather than being a dewy balm, and it doesn’t layer well over makeup at all. I’ve tried using a beauty sponge or fingertips, and it ends up breaking my foundation up almost instantly, which just gets worse whilst on the skin.
It’s also very glittery, which you can see in the photo above. It’s described as being shimmery, which it isn’t. It’s definitely glitter, and greasy, and sadly isn’t pleasant to use. I’m really surprised that it’s £12, and it performs as badly as it does, but my skin is extremely dry, and it’s too greasy for me, so I can’t imagine the XX Revolution NeXXt Dew Glass Gloss Stixx working at all for other skin types. You’d be better off using one of the tins of Vaseline instead, as it’ll give you the same effect for only £1.
