The Revolution x Coca-Cola Creations Collaboration was officially announced by Revolution five days ago, as being the brand’s latest licensed collaboration.
We have seen a heck of a lot of collabs from Revolution this year, and we literally just saw their Love Island collab launch last week, so it’s surprising to see another collaboration so soon. If you’d like to find out all about this collab, keep on reading…
When the Revolution x Coca-Cola Creations Collaboration was announced on Instagram, Revolution described it as being a collection that will “quench your thirst”, and it’s the first time Revolution has collaborated with The Coca-Cola Company.
We’ve seen a lot of Coca-Cola themed beauty collaborations over the last few years, with Morphe both collaborating with Coca-Cola, and Cherry Coke. Whilst this collection won’t be for everyone, this collection is a little different, as it’s tapping into Coca-Cola Creations.
What Is Coca-Cola Creations?
Coca-Cola Creations is a ‘new platform which takes the iconic Coca‑Cola brand and lends it to new expressions, driven by collaboration, creativity and cultural connections’.
Through Coca‑Cola Creations, the brand will collaborate to create new flavours, designs and experiences with Coca‑Cola, reimagining their iconic product in time-limited edition flavours which take inspiration from relevant moments across culture, music and gaming.
So, the Revolution x Coca-Cola Creations Collaboration isn’t a straight up Coca-Cola collab, which makes it a little more interesting than the other Coca-Cola themed collabs we’ve seen from beauty brands. All of the products in this collection have a space / celestial theme, both in terms of packaging designs, but also shade names too.
So, let’s take a look at everything inside the Revolution x Coca-Cola Creations Collaboration.
The first item in the collection, is a Revolution x Coca-Cola Creations Space Makeup Bag, and it’s shaped to look like a Coke can, which gives me major retro vibes. I think everyone that grew up in the 90s had a Coke can shape pencil case for school, and now we can have a Coke can shape makeup bag, which is so super cute.
It looks to have a neoprene type material, with the space-themed pattern all over, and a hot pink zip. You could totally use it as a pencil case if you wanted to, but it is designed to be a cosmetics bag.
If you enjoy Revolution mascaras, the Revolution x Coca-Cola Creations Collaboration features a Starlight Mascara, containing 8g / 0.28 oz of product. It looks like it’s a special edition of an existing mascara, rather than being a completely new mascara.
Looking at the plastic, synthetic bristles, it looks like it’s their Big Lash Reloaded Mascara, and the tubes are the same shape too. Except, for the Revolution x Coca-Cola Creations Collaboration, it has matte black packaging, with hot pink foil writing.
This highlighter is housed within matte black cardboard packaging, with a colourful starburst design both on the outside of the packaging, and the inside too. The highlighter features a pattern on the pan, with a Coca-Cola bottle, with some planets, clouds and stars.
In terms of shade, the Revolution x Coca-Cola Creations Starlight Highlighter looks like a peachy rose gold shade. It’s rare for Revolution to launch just one highlighter shade, so perhaps there are other shades as well as this one, but this shade will work for medium to dark skintones.
The Revolution x Coca-Cola Creations Collaboration features not one, but three different lip glosses. They are the Revolution x Coca-Cola Creations Juicy Lip Glosses. The packaging is the same as their Revolution Pout Bomb Lip Glosses.
All three shades have clear plastic tubes, with black lids. On the lids, there’s a hot pink foil starburst design, and the foil effect features for the Coca-Cola branding on the tubes also. Let’s take a look at the three shades;
All three lip glosses are translucent, and have a sheer hint of colour. It’s hard to tell what each colour looks like on the lips, as the model has used a deep coloured lip liner for each swatch photo, with the liner faded into the centre of the lips. It’d be better to have arm swatches as well as these artistic swatches, so we get a true representation of the swatches.
The last two items in the Revolution x Coca-Cola Creations Collaboration are eyeshadow palettes. There are two palettes to choose from, one large eighteen-pan palette, and a smaller nine-pan palette.
First we have the Mini Starlight Palette, which appears to be completely shimmery and metallic, with no matte shades. On some of the pans, there’s a raised Coca-Cola bottle pattern, and the shades include;
- Shooting Star
The second palette in the Revolution x Coca-Cola Creations Collaboration, is the Starlight Palette, which again features only shimmery and metallic shades. It makes sense too, seeing as it’s a celestial, space-themed collaboration.
Inside this palette, the shades are;
- Falling Star
All of the shades inside the Mini Starlight Palette feature inside the larger, Starlight Palette, so you definitely don’t need two. It looks like Revolution have drawn inspiration from Beauty Bay, creating different sized palettes, of the same shades.
So, that’s everything inside the Revolution x Coca-Cola Creations Collaboration. I think the colours do a great job at representing the Creations line of Coca-Cola, and I think it’s better than the Coca-Cola collabs we’ve seen from Morphe. I’ll update this post once we get a launch date…
