Wow, Revolution have just announced *the* collaboration of the year, and it’s the Revolution x Corpse Bride Collection.
We saw Revolution launch their The Nightmare Before Christmas Collection last year, as their Halloween collection.
I’ve never seen a Revolution collection sell out SO quickly. They’ve done multiple restocks since the initial launch, and this new collection is guaranteed to be even more popular than their original collection, and I am so excited. What’s more, they’ve just announced the Revolution x The Simpsons Halloween Collection too.
The Revolution x Corpse Bride Collection is a collaboration between Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride x Revolution, and I can’t imagine how much the licence cost for this collab, and it comes literally weeks after the launch of the DC Collection.
We’ve seen so many collabs from Revolution this year, and each of them have been well executed.
Revolution absolutely smashed it with their Nightmare Before Christmas Collection. There were makeup bags, makeup brushes, palettes, glosses, highlighters, and it all sold out insanely fast.
It was such an exciting collection, for such an accessible brand, and I am so excited that, instead of just copying the collab once more, a little like the just announced ColourPop Hocus Pocus collab, Revolution have changed it up a little, with another Tim Burton classic.
“You are all cordially invited to the wedding of the year ⚰️👰 Get ready to say ‘I do’ to a haunting collection that’s simply to die for… The Corpse Bride X Revolution is coming Friday 24th September!“
OK, so what is Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride? The Nightmare Before Christmas launched in 1993, and the Corpse Bride launched in 2005, (and then Frankenweenie came third in 2012).
The characters are different in Corpse Bride, compared to The Nightmare Before Christmas, which saw Jack and Sally collections in their Revolution collaboration.
So I fully anticipate that the Revolution x Corpse Bride Collection will feature a capsule collection for each character, just like they did with The Nightmare Before Christmas.
The Corpse Bride features several main characters;
- Victor Van Dort
- Victoria Everglot
- Emily The Corpse Bride
- Barkis Bitten
- Finis Everglot
The Revolution x Corpse Bride Collection has now been officially revealed, and it’s very exciting.
The first preview we had was this amazing butterfly shaped palette, and it looks incredible.
Emily had the ability to turn herself into a butterfly swarm, which symbolised her ascent into Heaven, so it’s fantastic it’s been included within the collection. We can see some of the shade names within the palette;
- Eternal Love
The Revolution x Corpse Bride Collection Butterfly Shadow Palette is $20 / £15, and is shaped like a blue butterfly (just like Emily), and contains sixteen powder shadows in the most ornate, beautiful packaging.
Inside the palette, there’s a colour story to complement the colours of the butterfly design on the lid of the palette.
With blues, pinks, purples, red, gold and some pastels too. Even the inside of the palette is decorated, and it’s cut out to look like the shape of a butterfly also.
Next up in the Revolution x Corpse Bride Collection is the Brush Set, which features four brushes, including two eye brushes and two face brushes.
The Revolution x Corpse Bride Collection next includes another range of eyeshadow palettes, in different sizes, and different packaging, with photo images of the movie on the packaging.
Everything looks amazing, and a lot more luxe than their Nightmare Before Christmas collection from last year.
I can’t believe how much effort has gone into producing and designing this collection, Revolution have nailed it.
The three other palettes on offer are;
- Revolution x Corpse Bride Collection The Newly Weds Shadow Palette $12 / £10
- Revolution x Corpse Bride Collection Grave Misunderstanding Shadow Palette $12 / £10
- Revolution x Corpse Bride Collection Upstairs Downstairs Shadow Palette $25 / £20
There are two nine-pan palettes, one of which is more neutral, and the other is a cool toned blue palette.
They’re in square tins, with stamps on the pans, with the neutral palette having bone embossing patterns on the pans, and the blue palette has skull patterns on the pans.
In addition to the two nine-pan palettes, and the big butterfly themed palette, there’s then the Upstairs Downstairs Shadow Palette featuring twenty four beautiful, colourful shades, all inspired by the movie.
There’s even quotes from the movie on the inside of the palette, and the inside of the palette is also patterned, just like the butterfly palette. Inside this palette, there are the following powder eyeshadows;
- The Rings
- Van Dort
- Lord Barkis
- Town Crier
- With This Hand
- Elder Gutknecht
- To Plan
- Pastor Galswells
- The Wedding
- True Love
It’s a monochrome mirror, with an image of the married couple. I can’t believe how amazing this mirror is.
The design on the back of the mirror, and the handle, looks incredible, and will be a must-have for the fans of the movie.
There appears to be just one makeup bag within the collection, and it’s a Revolution x Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride Scraps Makeup Bag, which is $12 / £8.
It’s a pale blue see-through makeup bag, with images of Scraps (the skeleton dachshund dog) all over the bag.
The very last pieces in the Revolution x Corpse Bride Collection, are three shades of lipstick.
The lipsticks have rectangular packaging, with blue chrome accents, and each of the lipsticks are named after three characters, with a skeleton skull embossed into each of the bullets.
We have the Revolution x Corpse Bride Victoria Lipstick, Revolution x Corpse Bride Victor Lipstick and the Revolution x Corpse Bride Emily Lipstick. The lipsticks are $7 / £5 each, with the coolest packaging.
The Victoria Lipstick is a pretty deep and dark red, the Victor Lipstick is a pretty peach and the Emily Lipstick is a pretty pink.
What an incredible Revolution collection, and if you want to get your hands on the collection, it is going to be launching right here on Friday the 24th of September.
I will of course update this post as soon as more information is shared, but I am very excited.
