Out of all of the XX Revolution products, I feel like the XX Revolution Primers are the least spoken about, which is a shame as there’s loads of them!
The XX Revolution Hydra Fixx Hydrating Primer is just one of the primers, and in addition to the Hydra Fixx Primer, there’s also a Hydra Fixx Hydrating Setting Spray too.
“Stay snatched with XX Revolution Fixx Primers to illuminate, mattify, hydrate, give radiance or blur pores.
A choice of 5 primers so you can get your fix no matter the skin finish your going for. These primers are doing the most with a mix of natural AND active ingredients. Choose your skin finish, choose your solution, match to your Fixx Mist.“
The packaging looks so luxe for a drugstore primer, and whilst £12 is pricey for a ‘drugstore’ primer, when you compare it to the NYX Primers, which are £15, and their packaging isn’t remotely luxe.
The XX Revolution Hydra Fixx Hydrating Primer is a blue gel, with a thin viscous consistency which spreads easily over the skin, with a little going a long way.
This primer is specifically designed for a hydration boost, and the formula features Cactus, Aloe Water, Cherry Blossom & Hyaluronic Acid.
Once you’ve worked the primer into the skin, it does leave the skin slightly tacky which is what helps your makeup to adhere to the skin so well, but it’s not a primer I’d use on bare skin days as it is so tacky.
If I had to compare the formula of the XX Revolution Hydra Fixx Hydrating Primer to another brand’s formula, it would have to be the Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Primer, which Smashbox discontinued a couple of years ago which was a travesty as it was amazing.
So I’m extremely happy to have found a dupe in the XX Revolution Hydra Fixx Hydrating Primer, and I’d 100% repurchase once I’ve finished, and I’d love to try the other primers in the XX Revolution range.
