The Revolution Pro Creme Skin Perfector CC Skin Tint launched in May, and I wasn’t sure it was something I wanted to try. I’ve not had the best experiences when it comes to Revolution foundations and CC creams, but this particular product sounded really intriguing.
“Always wear your perfect shade with this revolutionary new soft-focus skincare-led makeup, the Revolution Pro CC Perfecting Skin Tint. An innovative and lightweight cream Skin Tint, that boasts a unique shade adapting formula and blends out to suit your skin tone. It’s magic in a tube!
The formulation initially appears white but when rubbed into the skin, tiny micro-encapsulated pigments burst, creating a foundation colour that matches to your skin with a 100% natural looking finish. Formulated with Vitamin E this product will keep your skin healthy as well as giving high-definition radiance.“
The Revolution Pro Creme Skin Perfector CC Skin Tint is £12.99 / $16, and contains 40ml of product within a gold coloured plastic tube. The tube looks long and thin, so I thought that it contained less product than the average foundation or skin tint, but it actually contains more with 40ml, when the majority of base products are 30ml.
When the Revolution Pro Creme Skin Perfector CC Skin Tint launched, there were a lot of negative comments on how limited the shade range was, but the brand explained the product features a shade adapting formula and blends out to suit your skin tone.
I eye roll whenever a brand claims to have shade adapting technology, as surely a shade matches your skintone, or it doesn’t?
I have never found a product to deliver on these claims in all my many years of wearing makeup, but curiosity got the better of me, and I decided to try the Revolution Pro Creme Skin Perfector CC Skin Tint.
I bought the palest shade from the five shades, which is called Light. Straight from the tube, the Revolution Pro Creme Skin Perfector CC Skin Tint is a white, thin cream, which when you start to blend, becomes to show the tint.
Many ‘skin adapting’ foundations or skin tints go bright orange as soon as you begin to work it into the skin. But the Revolution Pro Creme Skin Perfector CC Skin Tint doesn’t. It’s the only shade adapting product I’ve ever tried which hasn’t just turned bright orange, and I’m so surprised.
I never expected ‘Light’ to work for me, because it’s supposed to suit those that wear the shades 0.1, 0.2, 0.5 or 1 from their foundation ranges. I have 0.5 in their base range, but I didn’t expect Light to work as shade 1.0 of their foundations is bright orange on me, but it actually works.
This Revolution Pro skin tint gives very sheer coverage, and is ideal for days when I want *something* for my base, but nothing heavy or too full coverage. It really does give you the cliché ‘your skin but better’ effect, and it lasts for around five hours before touch-ups are needed.
I don’t think that’s too bad for a sheer coverage skin tint, and if you’ve been sceptical about the colour changing technology, you have to give it a try. I’m so impressed, and I’m happy to finally have found a Revolution foundation which works for my skintone, and skin type.
