Planet Revolution is the newest Revolution sister brand, and the Planet Revolution Colour Pot Lip & Cheek Tint is just one of many new products which launched at the start of June.
Revolution has a lot of sister brands, but Planet Revolution is unique to the others, as it’s focused around eco-friendly, recyclable packaging and sustainable formulas. Keep on reading to find out more….
The Planet Revolution Colour Pot Lip & Cheek Tint launched as part of the brand’s makeup range, but there’s also skincare, beauty accessories and a lot more.
The prices are a little higher than say the standard Revolution range, but the packaging is going to be undeniably more expensive as they’re having to source recyclable components.
The Planet Revolution Colour Pot Lip & Cheek Tint is one of five different shades, and they’re £6 / $8 each for 12g / 0.42oz of product.
Each of the five tint shades are packaged within circular glass jars, so they can be fully recycled. Even the lids are made out of recycled PCR plastic, and the cardboard box the jars come with are also
made from FSC certified card.

I bought two shades of the Planet Revolution Colour Pot Lip & Cheek Tint, and this particular shade is called Blushed Cherry, which is a peculiar name for a peachy nude.
There’s no cherry or blush tones. It’s a straight-up peach, which I’m definitely not complaining about, as peach blushers are my favourite, but the stock images do look different to the ‘real’ shade in person.
For a drugstore blusher, I don’t think £6 is too bad at all. Especially as you’re getting 12g of product. I can’t recall using a cream blush with that much product, so for £6 it’s actually a really great price.
In the jar, the Planet Revolution Colour Pot Lip & Cheek Tint is a solid balm, and on contact with the skin, it melts into a cream ready for applying to the cheeks and/or lips.
It’s a very dewy product, which might be *too* dewy for oily or combination skin. It gives a wet look shine to the skin (rather than a subtle glow), and I like the wet-look shine effect, but the ‘wet’ formula means it can slide around on the face once applied, as it doesn’t fully set on the skin, and it’s not the kind of product you can set with powder.
I’ve found the less is more approach to be best when using the Planet Revolution Colour Pot Lip & Cheek Tint, as less product means less movement on the skin/lips once applied.
This formula does work well on the cheeks and lips, but it’s not the most long lasting, with only an hour for the lips, and three to four for the cheeks, before signs of fading.
Cream blushers tend to fade quicker than powder blushers, but that’s just down to the more emollient consistency, but it’s so quick and easy to apply, and you just tap the product into the skin, or the lips, and that’s it!
I bought another shade of the Planet Revolution Colour Pot Lip & Cheek Tint at the same time as Blushed Cherry, and I’ll be sure to post my review of the other shade very soon.
