Revolution aren’t a brand that does anything by halves. Most brands will launch one or two launches in one go, but Revolution launched 11 new products yesterday, including the Revolution Pro CC Perfecting Pressed Powder. The Revolution team have been teasing these new Revolution Pro launches for weeks now, and they finally appeared on the Revolution website yesterday.
Revolution Pro CC Perfecting Pressed Powder
The Revolution Pro CC Perfecting Pressed Powder is a pressed powder that promises zero flashback, and is infused with hyaluronic acid for a boost of hydration whilst skin-loving antioxidants help to leave the skin feeling nourished. Revolution claim the fine pressed powder will melt into your skin for a hint of coverage, whilst also setting your makeup in place too.

Revolution Pro CC Perfecting Pressed Powder Shades:
- Warm Ivory
- Warm Beige
- Warm Maple
- Cool Maple
- Warm Golden
- Rich Dark
The Revolution Pro CC Perfecting Pressed Powder is available in a Translucent shade, and twelve skin tone shades too. The powder is £9 and contains 5 grams of product. As the powders are part of the brand’s Pro range, the packaging is super luxe. With a gold metallic compact, with a textured cream coloured, faux snakeskin effect on the lid.
The compacts do look really sleek, but you aren’t getting a lot of product for your money. You are very obviously paying the money for the luxurious packaging, as most pressed powders contain considerably more. For example, the Revolution Pro New Neutral Translucent Pressed Powder which is also from the Pro range, is just £5 but you’re getting 7.5g of product – so it’s £4 cheaper, and contains 2.5g more product.
I really like the raised rippled designs on these powders, and it matches the pattern on the Pro Sculpt and Glow Duos, as well as their brand new quads. I am tempted to try the Translucent version of the powder as they look really silky, but I think the palest shade might be a touch too warm for my skintone but they’re definitely the most luxe powders I’ve ever seen within the drugstore.
