Revolution Pro is one of the more luxe Revolution sister brands, before XX Revolution was a thing, but all of the formulas and packaging designs are just so much prettier and chicer. So I was excited to see what’s inside the Rockstar calendar.
The Revolution Pro Rockstar 12 Days Advent Calendar has a very tiny description, which is such a shame, as it doesn’t sell the calendar or do it justice. All Revolution have on their website is;
“Unleash your inner Rockstar with the Revolution PRO Rockstar 12 Days Advent Calendar.“
Like, come on, get people excited about this beauty of a calendar. I think this is one of the most impressive calendars Revolution has available for 2021, so it really deserves a more detailed description to get people buying it.
The Revolution Pro Rockstar 12 Days Advent Calendar is a twelve-day calendar, and comes with a gold metallic box, with a lid, and under the lid there are twelve different sized cardboard boxes containing the products.
The lid has a raised studded design, just like the packaging on the entire Revolution Pro Rockstar collection, and it’s just a really chic and glam aesthetic.
Day 1 – Kicking off the Revolution Pro Rockstar 12 Days Advent Calendar, we have the Revolution Pro Rockstar Hydrating Shine Lipstick in the shade Stripped. I have already done a full review post on this exact lipstick (right here), but the packaging and formula is a spot-on dupe for Tom Ford lipsticks, and this is such a pretty pink shade.
Day 2 – We have another shade of the lipstick for day two, and it’s exactly the same formula as day one; the Hydrating Shine Lipstick, except this shade is Cashmere, which is a browny nude shade, and just like Stripped, it’s so lovely, pigmented and smooth on the lips.
Day 3 – We have the first accessory within the Revolution Pro Rockstar 12 Days Advent Calendar for day number three, and it’s a Luxurious Compact Mirror. It’s a gold metal mirror, with a quilted black faux leather coating on the lid. It features a normal mirror, and a magnified mirror, and it’s the best quality mirror I’ve ever seen in a Revolution advent calendar.
Day 4 – We have another accessory, and this time it’s the Revolution Pro Luxury Eyelash Curlers. We’ve never seen Revolution dabble in lash curlers before, so it’s exciting to see them inside this calendar. As far as lash curlers go, these are really luxe, and the lash curler pad had a ridge on it, to protect the lashes which shows how luxurious they are, as you never get that with drugstore lash curlers normally.
Day 5 – One of my favourite items in the calendar is for day five, and it’s the Revolution Pro Rockstar Eye Lustre Eyeshadow in the shade Golden Rose. Oh my gosh this is such a gorgeous cream eyeshadow.
I thought it would be firm in the frosted glass jar, like a MAC Paint Pot, but it’s actually spongy and soft, so you only need a light touch in the jar to pick up enough product. This particular shade is like an old bronze, and it looks foiled on the lids, it’s so stunning.
Day 6 – Day six of the Revolution Pro Rockstar 12 Days Advent Calendar is the Revolution Pro Rockstar Mini Pouch. It’s a mini, black faux leather zip-up pouch, with a raised stud design on the fabric. The pouch has gold hardware, and it is a mini pouch, but it’s usable, and you could keep your makeup essentials inside within your handbag.
Day 7 – Next in the Revolution Pro Rockstar 12 Days Advent Calendar we have the Revolution Pro Rockstar Eyeliner Pen, and wow this is an epic eyeliner. It actually gives me dupe vibes for the new Hindash Heroline Eyeliner, with the same kind of ribbed detailing on the lid, and the nibs look extremely similar too.
This Revolution Pro Liner is super pigmented, and opaque too. Each of these ‘lines’ are single swipes, and it’s so intense and impressive, with the perfect amount of flexibility in the nib for gliding over the eyelids.
Day 8 – The only slightly disappointing product in the calendar is for day eight, and it’s a Revolution Pro Glass Nail File. It is a pretty file, with gold sparkle on the handle, but it just feels so random for a makeup advent calendar. Unless this is a hint that Revolution Pro will be delving into nail products soon?
Day 9 – To go with the eyeliner, the calendar also features the Revolution Pro Rockstar Volume Mascara, which featured within the Seclusion Gift Set I featured last week. It’s a great, volumising mascara which not only adds length, but it separates the lashes beautifully too, and lasts all day long.
Day 10 – I don’t think the Revolution Pro Rockstar 12 Days Advent Calendar would be complete without some brushes, and there are two eye makeup brushes for day ten. They are beautiful brushes, with gold metal handles with tiny little studs all over them, and the bristles are insanely soft. You get a rounded brush for blending through the crease, and a fluffier blending brush, which are perfect for the next two products…
Day 11 – For day eleven of the Revolution Pro Rockstar 12 Days Advent Calendar, there’s the Hollywood Eye Quad, which has gold cardboard packaging, and contains four stunning shimmer shades. They’re extremely pigmented and beautiful, with a foiled finish on the eyelids – these are one swipe swatches, look how amazing they are?!
Day 12 – The very last day of the calendar features the Revolution Pro Rockstar Magical Eye Quad, which again has four shimmer shades inside a cardboard compact, except this compact is cream. The quality of these shades are just as impressive as the Hollywood Quad, and they again have a foil finish, which looks so sparkly and pretty on the eyes.
How good is the Revolution Pro Rockstar 12 Days Advent Calendar? I do wish they’d skipped the nail file, but I really love every other product in the calendar. The lipstick shades are universally flattering shades, and who doesn’t want a new black liquid liner and mascara? I love this calendar, and highly recommend it if you haven’t yet chosen your beauty advent calendar for 2021.
