The XX Revolution Botanical Collection Review + Swatches

Tuesday 21 June 2022

 As soon as I saw the new XX Revolution Botanical Collection, I knew I had to have it! The products are beautiful, and of course with them being a part of Revolution Beauty, they are super affordable! Here is what I chose from the collection...

Firstly, the XX Revolution Botanical Accessories Set (£6.00) is just gorgeous! You get a pink mesh bag which contains 2 x Floral Hair Scrunchies, 2 x Floral Hair Clips with dried flowers inside and a Nail Sticker Sheet full of pretty blooms. I would have quite happily paid the £6.00 for the hair slides alone, as they are so pretty and I have been wanting some floral nail decals for a while. Maybe Revolution will start bringing out more accessories like this, as I would certainly buy them as they are really good quality too.

We then have the XX Revolution Botanical Wallflower Cream Blusher (£8.00 for 6.5g) which is available in three beautiful shades, of which I chose Foxhole Lane, a bright orange coral shade which is unique to other blush products I own. If you tend to stay away from cream blushers, then this one will be great for you as it dries down matte and so it isn't too sticky or hard to apply. The formula contains Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Macadamia and Argan Oil to keep the skin hydrated. You could also use this on the eyelids and lips too for a monochrome feel.

For the lips, there is the XX Revolution Botanical Lip Oil (£5.00 for 3.5ml), a clear lip oil that has a rollerball applicator and and actual pink flowers inside! This nourishing lip oil has a sweet berry scent to it and also contains Meadowfoam Seed Oil and Macadamia to keep the lips nourished and healthy looking. Even though it is an oil, it doesn't feel greasy on the lips and is very comfortable to wear, whether you want to wear it alone or over the top of a lipstick.

Finally for the eyes, you can pick up the XX Revolution Botanical Picnic Liquid Shadow Stick (£5.00 for 4ml), which come in clear tubes with pink dried flowers in the top of the cap. The applicator is a double sided flat sponge which makes it super easy to apply to the eyelids and there are three shades to choose from - Barley, a light nude, Fern, a baby blue and Flora, a pastel pink. All three give a lovely wash of colour to the eyelids and last on the lids throughout the day. The formula has a Fresh Meadow scent to it, which isn't overpowering and also contains those three key ingredients to nourish the lids - Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Macadamia and Shea Butter.

All the Loves,
