I have the most exciting review to share with you today, and it’s an unboxing, review and swatches post, featuring the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021.
It’s always exciting to see what Revolution have instore with their holiday/Christmas collections, and they really have pulled out all of the stops with their 2021 Christmas Collection.
I have another Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 to give away to one lucky Makeup Muddle reader, so if you’d like to find out what’s inside the calendar and/or enter my amazing giveaway, keep on reading (I’m also giving away the I Heart Revolution Cookie Tin Beauty Gift Set worth £40, right here)…
I’m so excited to be able to do an unboxing, contents reveal and give you swatches of everything within this calendar, and if you’d like to find out all about the incredible Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021, keep on reading…
Every Christmas, Revolution launches a number of advent calendars to suit all budgets. They also have a number of advent calendars with their different sister brands, with calendars under this main Revolution brand, I Heart Revolution brand and Makeup Obsession last year alone.
It’ll be interesting to see how many Makeup Revolution advent calendars there will be for 2021, and if there will be an XX Revolution Advent Calendar, maybe?
The Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 is the biggest, and most luxurious advent calendar offering this year, and you can sign up to the waiting list for the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 via the Revolution website right here.
When Revolution launched their Makeup Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 waiting list page, we could see that the calendar was going to have a monochrome marble design, with rose gold foil stars, which looked beautiful, and the calendar looks even more beautiful in person.
The Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 is shaped in a large, rounded box, which looks more luxe than their tree and star shaped designs from previous years.
The tree and star shaped calendars looked lovely, especially for an affordable brand, but I feel like the rounded box design of this calendar is something you could easily repurpose, and use for storage, once you’ve finished with the advent calendar, which is great!
Much of the Revolution holiday collection for 2021 feature tins, or reusable packaging, which is commendable, as they’re trying to create more eco-friendly designs. There’s no unnecessary plastic, with tissue paper and cardboard inners within all of the gift sets.
The Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 has a removable lid, and once you remove the lid, there’s twenty four boxes, which are one of two shapes, and have a segment design, with the first twelve days being in the centre of the calendar, and the other twelve are around the outside.
Once you open the individual boxes, the product/s are double wrapped in white tissue paper to keep them protected, and what’s particularly great about this calendar, is that some days you get more than one gift within the box, which is amazing.
The Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 features twenty four marble printed boxes, which look beautiful, and it does look very luxe. Its the most expensive advent calendar Revolution have on offer this year, and whilst it’s a drugstore calendar, it feels and looks luxurious. You could definitely reuse the giant black and rose gold hat box for beauty storage. I think it’d be great for storing your hot hair tools inside.
Let’s get on to unboxing and swatching every single product inside the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021.
*Spoiler Alert – please do not read any further than this point, if you don’t want to know which products are inside this advent calendar.*
The first item within the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 for day one, is the Revolution Lip Scrub. It’s a weighty, frosted glass jar with a black screw-on lid, featuring a marble foil design. The scrub smells incredible, with a delicious cherry scent, and it’s a nice and gritty sugar based lip scrub to prep the lips for your lip colours.
Next up in the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 is the Revolution Satin Kiss Lipstick in the shade Racer. The Satin Kiss Lipsticks are part of the brand’s permanent range, so it’s exciting to see the formula included within this calendar. Racer is the perfect vampy brown nude, and is super pigmented, creamy and long lasting on the lips.
The product hiding behind door number three in the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 is the Revolution Highlighter Powder in the shade Beam. This is a deep, chocolate brown shade, which is absolutely stunning. It is a deep shade, and people will moan about it, but it’s nice that Revolution have included an inclusive highlighter shade.
If they’d included a pale highlighter, deep skintones wouldn’t be able to use the highlighter for anything. However, with a deep highlighter, it can be used a bronzer on paler skintones, or as an eyeshadow, and I will for sure use it as an eyeshadow as it’s very pigmented, and almost foil in formula.
Day four of the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 is the Revolution Ultimate Eye Base Eye Primer in the shade Medium. This is a dupe for the PLouise Eye Bases, and is a super pigmented concealer-like primer, and is available as part of their permanent range.
Day five is the Revolution Beauty Sponge, and it’s a black, teardrop shaped beauty sponge with a lovely, soft texture. I’ve tried many Revolution blending sponges, and this is definitely the softest sponge they’ve ever created.
Next in the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021, is a product designed to go with day one’s product, and it’s the Revolution Cherry Lip Mask, which has the same scent as the scrub from day one. Like the scrub, the mask smells delicious.
Once you’ve used the scrub and lip mask, the next product is the Revolution Satin Kiss Lipstick in the shade Racer. This shade is the most perfect red, with a blue undertone, and is a spot-on dupe for MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick. It’s the perfect festive red, and will complement absolutely any skintone too.
Next in the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 is the Revolution Gloss Bomb Lip Gloss in the shade Glass, which is a clear plumping lip gloss. It has a strong minty scent, and subtle tingle on the lips, and will be great for layering over the two lipsticks in the calendar.
It wouldn’t a Revolution Advent Calendar without some brushes, and in day nine we get two makeup brushes. We get an angled brow brush, and a brow spoolie. Revolution brushes can be hit and miss, but these are weighty with metallic handles, and they’re pretty luxe. There’s also a matte black set of tweezers, giving you the three tools to fill in and perfect your brows.
Next in the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 is the Revolution Matte Bomb in the shade Chauffeur. It looks like this is a brand new formula for Revolution, as it’s a creme liquid lipstick, which has a satin finish for the first half an hour, before drying down to a matte finish.
For day eleven, the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 contains two more makeup brushes. This time it’s a tapered blending brush, and an angled shader brush, for applying, blending and diffusing eyeshadow.
To go with the brow tools we got in a previous box, the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 also includes a Revolution Brow Wax Pencil for helping you to set your brows in place. As it’s clear, it works for every brow colour, and is handy to have in your makeup bag for touch-ups on the go.
Next in the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 is the first palette of many, and is the Revolution Born For This Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette. I love the Reloaded palettes, but this purple themed palette is gorgeous.
However the quality, is absolutely fantastic. I can’t believe how beautiful this palette is, with no disappointing or poorly pigmented shadows. Revolution needs to make this palette permanent, it’s one of the best Reloaded Palettes I’ve tried.
The second eyeshadow palette in the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 is the Revolution Watching Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette. This is a green themed palette, and I was so excited to see this palette inside. Look how amazing these swatches are, the shadows are beautiful!
Day 15 in the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 is another palette, and it’s the Revolution Daytime Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette. This is a beautiful, warm toned orange themed palette, and has amazing quality like the other palettes in this calendar.
The fourth and final eyeshadow palette within the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 is the Revolution All Out Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette. This palette is more colourful and fun, and even with the brights, the formula is excellent with great pigmentation and colour payoff.
The next product inside the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 is one of three face palettes within the calendar. This is the Revolution Light It Up Highlighter Palette, featuring four very large (5g each) highlighter powders. This palette includes a yellow gold, pink champagne, champagne and bronze highlighter, and they’re all very pigmented and offer a high-shine finish.
Then we have the Revolution Blusher Palette, featuring eight blushers with six matte blusher shades, and two shimmer shades. The two shimmer shades can be worn as highlighters, or blush toppers depending on your skintone. They’re beautiful blushers, and there’s a great mix of shades with pinks, peaches, mauves and a berry too.
The third face palette within the Makeup Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 is the Revolution Contour Palette, featuring eight powders to bronze, contour and highlight the skin. I like that there is a mix of tones, with warm, cool and neutral shades, and they’re all nicely pigmented too.
Next up is the Revolution Illuminating Fixing Spray, which contains 100ml of product, and has a fresh aloe scent. It contains micro shimmer to help give your skin a glow, and it’s a nice formula, without feeling sticky or tight on the skin.
Day 21 of the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 is another highlighter, and it’s the Revolution Soft Light Highlighter Powder. This shade is more gold compared to the deep highlighter we got at the beginning of the calendar. This shade has almost a wet look effect on the skin – it’s beautiful.
The Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 next contains the Revolution Mascara. We don’t normally see mascaras inside the Revolution advent calendars, so it’s a nice change. It’s a product everyone uses, if they wear makeup, and it’s a natural bristled mascara in the colour black.
We get another two makeup brushes in day 23 of the Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021, and this time we get a flat shader brush, and a more precise liner brush which would also work for smudging shadow along the lashlines too.
On day 24, for Christmas Eve, the calendar gives us another Revolution gloss, and it’s the Revolution Shimmer Bomb Lip Gloss in the shade Shiner. It’s the prettiest clear gloss, with a very subtle pink tint, and lots of sparkly glitter, which is perfect for a festive gloss.
Wow! The Revolution Deluxe Advent Calendar 2021 is the best advent calendar I’ve ever seen from Revolution. The quality, pigmentation and formulas are fantastic, and nothing feels like a ‘filler’ gift. Even the brushes are amazing quality, and I so, so impressed with everything inside the calendar.
Not only are the products amazing, but the presentation is beautiful too. The boxes with the marble design are so pretty, and it’s so well made. I’m so glad I bought it, and I’m delighted to be able to give one of these calendars away.
