Hey loveliess, I hope you’re all warm and well.
Glitter makes everything a little better doesn’t it? That’s why I had to get my hands on these Revolution Pro glitters. I don’t actually own any pressed glitters so I was excited about that. I thought I’d give them a little try, have some fun and let you guys know how I get on.
So, when I got these, I didn’t realise they were magnetic. Great if you want to make your own custom palette I suppose. As I don’t have one, I’ve kept them in the less than great plastic container. The pan size is pretty good for the price. You get 5 pressed glitters for £6 which is decent. That’s all very well and good, but lets look at some swatches and see how they apply.
Let’s not lie, the colours are very pretty. The yellowy gold and copper glitters are right up my street. They swatched the best too. I did use a glitter primer underneath to help the glitter stick. I think without one, they glitter will just essentially fall off. To me, I feel like they swatched a little patchy. I didn’t so much drag them, rather pat them on and I feel that worked better. The red shade was particularly difficult to build up, but after moving it around a bit it kind of worked.
Applying the Revolution Pro glitters was a bit tricky. I found it easier to use my finger to tap the glitter on top of a primer. Using a brush just moved the glitter around. It looked patchy and got stuck on the brush. After a few tried I built up the glitter and it looked alright. But how did it feel? Did it last?
Did it last? How does it feel?
The lasting power was okay. I notice the glitter did flake away after a few hours but I’m not sure if that was the primer or not. When I had the glitter on my eyes, it was a little gritty. I definitely could feel there was glitter on my lids. It wasn’t scratchy or uncomfortable at all, but I was very aware it was there. I loved how pretty they glitter looked when applied. They really glammed up my makeup and I think they’d be amazing for festivals and special events.
Not gonna lie, I wasn’t blown away by these. Did they work? Yes, but with a lot of patience to get right. The price point is great. Six quid for 5 shades is very reasonable (some single glitter pots are double that) I do like that they’re magnetic, I just wish that was made clear on the packaging for those of us who don’t own palettes. I probably would buy more colours if and when they come out. As far as I know there’s only two packs at the moment. The shade range is pretty, however the two pinks are very similar in my opinion. I think they could have added something else.
There’s my very honest opinion on the Revolution Pro glitters. Not awful, not brilliant. A good middle ground which is okay by me. What glitters have you guys been using this summer? Any recommendations?
