The I Heart Revolution x Dr Seuss Collection Review + Swatches

Wednesday 30 March 2022

 I adore Dr Seuss - it takes me back to when I would go to Orlando as they had a full Dr Seuss land at Universal Islands of Adventure and I really miss it at the moment. So when I discovered the I Heart Revolution x Dr Seuss collection, I was thrilled and instantly ordered the whole range! Here are my thoughts...

There are four eyeshadow palettes and two cheek palettes available, which you can buy separately for £7.00 each, but as I knew I wanted the whole collection I ordered the I Heart Revolution x Dr Seuss Palette Collection for £36.00 (a £6.00 saving) as it includes all six palettes. The four eyeshadow palettes include Green Eggs & Ham, a pretty spring mix of corals, light greens and browns, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, a jewel-toned full shimmer palette, Oh! The Places You'll Go!, a mix of shimmer and matte shadows with a unique colour story and The Cat In The Hat, which is mainly shimmers with a couple of matte neutrals thrown in there two. Without a doubt, Green Eggs & Ham is my current favourite palette, but I know I will use the rest throughout the year, as One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish will be amazing for party season! 

The palettes all come in a sweet little library style book case, and they are smaller than I imagined, but I actually prefer this as I aren't a fan of huge eyeshadow palettes and tend to always reach for smaller ones. There is a little kick back with the matte shadows, which I often find with Revolution branded shadows, but they are still very workable and give great colour payoff, and the shimmers are great, you cannot go wrong with a Revolution shimmer! I think individually, the palettes are slightly overpriced for the size, but then it is a brand collaboration, so they have to pay for that extra addition. All in all, I am super impressed and happy with this collection. 

The two cheek palettes include Horton Hears A Who!, a stripey pink nude cheek duo, and Fox In Socks, a warmer, bronzed cheek duo. You can absolutely mix and match with these palettes, and even use the shades individually as eyeshadows if you are travelling and have a lack of space. Overall, the formula works really well, and there is shimmer in both palettes, so if you prefer a matte finish to your cheek products, I would maybe skip over these, but if you like a glowy look, I would definitely try them out.

Next up is the I Heart Revolution x Dr Seuss Eye Crayon Collection, which retails for £12.00 for six crayons, so just £2.00 a crayon! They are also small, like the palettes, but again I have been opting for smaller makeup products recently as I never use up a full sized product due to my love for makeup. These are super cute and so easy to use - simply swipe on and go, or if you prefer a more natural look, you can blend them in using your fingertip or a makeup brush. The shades you receive include Fox in Socks - Soft Orange, Horton Hears A Who - Silver, Green Eggs & Ham - Light Green, The Cat in the Hat - Sky Blue, Oh!  The Places You'll Go - Blush Pink, and One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish - Yellow Gold. At just £12.00 for the set, I would definitely recommend picking these up as you can create endless amount of looks with the six colours provided.

Even though they aren't makeup items, my favourite thing from the collection is the I Heart Revolution x Dr Seuss Thing 1 & Thing 2 Brush Set. Thing 1 and Thing 2 are my favourites from Dr Seuss, and if you have been to Universal Studios, you will have seen a lot of people walking around in 'Thing' t-shirts, and yes I was one of them! This brush set instantly reminds me of the naughty pair, with the blue hair/brush hairs, and the red and white clothing/brush handle. I love them so much I bought two sets! The duo includes a soft powder brush which is great for applying setting powder, bronzer and blush, and a stippling brush perfect for buffing and blending cream products into the skin. I have been using the stippling brush to blend in my cream bronzer (current favourite product), and the bristles are so soft yet well-packed and they do such a great job!

Finally, are the lip glosses - the I Heart Revolution x Dr Seuss Horton Hears A Who Lip Gloss, the I Heart Revolution x Dr Seuss Fox in Socks Lip Gloss and the I Heart Revolution x Dr Seuss Oh! The Places You'll Go! Lip Gloss. Each retails at £6.00 and you get a good amount of product in each. The Lip Glosses have a large, soft, sponge-tipped applicator, which makes it super quick and easy to apply, and the formula isn't sticky or gloopy, just glossy on the lips. Horton Hears A Who is a pretty pink coral shade with shimmer, Fox in Socks has a beautiful ballerina pink shimmer to it and Oh! The Places You'll Go! is a peachy orange shimmer that will look amazing with a summer tan! Each one has sweet little colourful illustrations on the lid from the books which I fully appreciate!
