Revolution recently launched two primer serums; the Revolution Conceal and Define Oil Priming Serum and the Revolution Conceal and Define Blur Priming Serum.
Both of these primers launched a few weeks ago, but nobody is really talking about them, and I’m not entirely sure why.
Primer serums are really popular right now from the likes of Hourglass, Smashbox, Farsali and Laura Mercier, so it’s great that Revolution have stepped up with a more affordable version, or two.
Revolution Conceal and Define Blur Priming Serum
This priming serum has been created to give the skin a soft blur finish that evens out the skintone, and is said to be perfect to use with their bestselling Conceal and Define Foundation.
The two primer serums are called Conceal and Define, and the Conceal and Define collection keeps on growing. This week, Revolution launched a brush set to the range, as well as a setting spray.
The Revolution Conceal and Define Blur Priming Serum has been formulated with grape seed oil (although their website calls it ‘grade seed’ so I assume that’s a typo) for extra skin loving benefits.
As a priming serum, it’s said to be the perfect combination of skincare meets makeup. Many brands are creating makeup skincare hybrids right now
Aqua (Water, Eau), Cyclopentasiloxane, Propanediol, Vitis Vinifera Oil, Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone, Polyacrylamide, Xanthan Gum, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Sodium Benzoate, Polysilicone-11, Potassium Sorbate, Laureth-7, Citric Acid.
The Revolution Conceal and Define Blur Priming Serum is £10 and contains 30ml of product within a frosted glass bottle with a black pump allowing you to control how much product you dispense.
The packaging is absolutely identical to the Revolution Conceal and Define Oil Priming Serum, so if you own them both, you’d need to physically read the label as there’s no way to tell them apart.
So the Revolution Conceal and Define Blur Priming Serum is designed to blur and even out the skintone, and the Revolution Conceal and Define Oil Priming Serum is designed to nourish the skin whilst imparting a demi-matt finish.
Reading the ingredients and claims, it appears that this particular primer serum has less skin-friendly ingredients as there’s grape seed oil, whereas the Oil Priming Serum features rosehip oil, peach kernel oil and jojoba oil to nourish and create a silky base.
If I had to choose one over the other, I think I’d have to choose the Oil Priming Serum as it sounds more beneficial to the skin.
However, if you like the sound of the blurring effects of the Revolution Conceal and Define Blur Priming Serum, it might be better to use a blurring primer like the Blur Stick Primer as it’d have more noticeable effects on the skin.
