XX Revolution launched last summer as a new Revolution sister brand. The XX Revolution Chromatixx Duochrome Pigment collection launched as part of the debut XX Revolution collection, and I really wanted to try them, but the price kinda put me off.
The XX Revolution Chromatixx Duochrome Pigment collection includes six different shades, and are £14 / $16, for a miniscule 0.4g of product. You get less than half of a gram of pigment, which has to be the smallest pigment I’ve ever seen.
In Revolution’s defence, multichrome pigments are notorious for being super expensive, so the small amount of product is to be expected, but £14 does sting a little, and is the reason I didn’t buy any upon the launch.
“XX Revolution Chromatixx Duo Chrome Pigment Pots are colour shifting loose eyeshadows for next level lewks.
Remember the viral colour changing dress? Well, these shade shifting pigments give it a run for its money. Each shade transforms to a different glistening colour depending on the lighting and angle. It’s legit so cool.”
The XX Revolution Chromatixx Duochrome Pigment is actually a multichrome collection, so them being called duochrome on the box is selling them short. Revolution has the three shades of the multichrome finishes for all six shades, and there’s definitely three shifts per shade.
I have the XX Revolution Chromatixx Duochrome Pigment in the shade Flip, which is described as being an amethyst purple, which shifts to green and pink depending on the angles and type of light. I really could only catch the amethyst purple and pink on camera, but the green shift is definitely there.
Each of the pigments comes in a tiny, circular jar with a sifter, and they’re best applied with a dampened brush to intensify the multichrome finish. Flip is beautiful, and I bought it discounted to £7, and I would buy more XX Revolution Chromatixx Duochrome Pigment shades on sale, as they are so pretty.
