The I Heart Revolution The Tasty Christmas Hamper Collection is part of the Revolution Christmas collection for 2021, and is just one of the offerings from I Heart Revolution. In addition to the hamper, there’s also the I Heart Revolution Cookie Tin Set, which I’ve already reviewed and swatched right here.
“A collection of new and exclusive I Heart Revolution Tasty makeup products and accessories in a keepsake box.The Tasty Hamper includes 2 Tasty shadow palettes, a mini highlighter palette, almond milk bubble bath, accessories and more!“
The I Heart Revolution The Tasty Christmas Hamper Collection is £55, and comes with a pink chest, with a faux wicker basket design. It looks really cute, but it’s nicely made, and can be easily reused for storage. It has ribbons inside, to keep the lid open.
Inside the ‘hamper’ the products are set out in a cardboard insert. My insert was a bit ripped and smashed up, with some shredded paper. Revolution have adapted a more eco-friendly approach for their Christmas collection this year.
So credit where it’s due, it’s nice to see no plastic, but if I’d received this as a gift, I’d be a little disappointed to see in the inside as it was a real mess.
I removed the insert to take the above photo, but I think they might need to a sturdier cardboard insert, to keep all of the products safe inside the chest.
Let’s take a look at the I Heart Revolution The Tasty Christmas Hamper Collection…
First up in the I Heart Revolution The Tasty Christmas Hamper Collection is a peach coloured, teardrop makeup blending sponge. It’s nice and soft, and is a great addition to the Christmas chest.
Next up is the I Heart Revolution Almond Bath Cream, which is shaped like a milk bottle. It contains 200ml of bath milk, which is a large size, and it’s even sealed with a foil seal to keep the bottle protected within the chest. It’s a thick bath cream, with a delicious almond scent.
The I Heart Revolution The Tasty Christmas Hamper Collection includes another bath product, and it’s the I Heart Revolution Gingerbread Bath Fizzer.
He’s really cute, with a gingerbread shape, but it doesn’t really have a scent. Which is a little disappointing considering how delicious the bath fizzers are in the I Heart Revolution Cookie Tin Set.
Next is the I Heart Revolution Cranberry Makeup Fixing Spray 50ml, which has a subtle fruity cranberry scent, and there’s lots of gold and silver shimmer particles to give the skin a shimmery effect to the skin.
The I Heart Revolution The Tasty Christmas Hamper Collection features two lip products, with the first product being the I Heart Revolution Gingerbread Lipstick. This lipstick has a cute gingerbread design on the lid, and is an oxblood shade, with a satin formula.
The second lip product in the chest is the I Heart Revolution Cranberry Lip Gloss. It’s almost the same shade as the lipstick, and is a deep oxblood shade, which does offer a decent amount of pigment, and can be worn layered over the lipstick within the chest.
The last three products in the I Heart Revolution The Tasty Christmas Hamper Collection are all palettes, with two large eyeshadow palettes and one face duo.
All three products are part of the I Heart Revolution Tasty Collection, with a raised 3D rubber palette design on the lids, and they’re all inspired by fall/autumn and winter foods.
The first of the three palettes is the I Heart Revolution Tasty Gingerbread Palette, featuring 18 shades inside a green plastic palette, and a festive gingerbread design on the lid. This palette is super, super pigmented, especially the first green shade (Cloves). It stains a lot, but every shade is very pigmented, and there’s a nice mix of colours and neutrals too.
Then the last eyeshadow palette in the I Heart Revolution The Tasty Christmas Hamper Collection is the I Heart Revolution Tasty Pumpkin Pie Eyeshadow Palette, which has an orange plastic design, with a 3D pumpkin pie on the front.
This palette is just amazing, the shadows are fantastic, and the pigmentation is great. I really like this colour story, and I wish this palette was part of their permanent range, as it’s one of the best I Heart Revolution palettes I’ve tried.
We have the final palette within the I Heart Revolution The Tasty Christmas Hamper Collection, which is the I Heart Revolution Tasty Cranberry Jelly Face Palette, with a cute jar of cranberry on the lid of the palette. In this face duo, we have two shimmery shades of highlighter / blusher or eyeshadows, depending on your skin.
They’re both smooth, and very pigmented, but the shades inside are very un-cranberry, and feel a bit random? Especially when the other two palettes carry decent themes, but it’s a nice face duo palette nonetheless.
So that’s the Tasty Christmas Hamper. It’s such a cute set, especially as it features a mix of makeup and also bath products too. I like that this set and the Cookie Tin set combines both the I Heart Revolution makeup and bath ranges.
Right now, this set is exclusive to Superdrug, but it’ll be launching on the Revolution UK / US websites in September, and I’ll be sure to update this post once this happens, and if you’re in the US, you can use promo code MUDDLE for 20% discount on the Revolution US website.
