Now, I'm sure you're as eager to learn about it as I was when the phrase 'XX' started to be mysteriously thrown around the office a year ago, so without further ado here's the low down on our newest brand.
How XX Revolution came to be
As beauty fanatics, it's been clear to us for a while that the industry as we know it is changing. Five years ago, my beauty routine involved removing my makeup with a disposable face wipe (please don't come for me, it was a different time) and slathering on the cheapest moisturiser I could find, then finding the highest possible coverage foundation and concealer to cover-up the impact of my non-existent skincare. Now, it involves an intricate and ever-evolving 10 step skincare routine which I spend hours researching and mix up weekly, and my makeup and skincare work seamlessly together. I used makeup to try and create perfection and to cover up 'flaws' with makeup, today I use it to express myself and embrace my imperfections.
As the line between makeup and skincare becomes more blurred, we wanted to create a brand that reflects the changing way we use makeup. So, we created XX Revolution.
What is XX Revolution?
XX Revolution is beauty re-wired. We're talking the evolution of skincare and makeup into one, next-level makeup innovations infused with active skincare ingredients. We're talking formulations, pigments, textures, and packaging that is usually exclusive to prestige brands, now available for everyone. With XX Revolution your skin is front and centre. With XX Revolution, you're free to experiment, explore, to create looks with no limits.
“We had so much fun creating the products for XX Revolution, and there’s so much more to come! In creating this product line up, our aim was to create prestige products at affordable prices. The focus on skin x make up allowed us to create meaningful ingredient stories and experiment with new textures and finishes. We explored different formulas, and finishes through highly pigmented, powerful products in a vast range of shades and styles” – Adam Minto, co-founder of Revolution Beauty
How is XX Revolution different?
It’s no secret that at Revolution we launch a lot of products and have a lot of brands. As makeup fanatics ourselves, we can’t help ourselves when it comes to the latest formulations, packaging, colours, textures, and trends. We believe in the democratisation of beauty, in making the most incredible formulas and innovations available to all at an accessible price point. We know that not everyone does beauty the same way, so we create brands that make sure that everyone has something they'll love. XX Revolution is for the skincare fanatics, for the people who want premium formulations and caring ingredients, for people who want quality without the excessive price tag. The slightly higher (yet still affordable) price point allows us to explore ingredients, formulations, textures, and packaging that previously were unaffordable, and make them accessible to everyone. XX Revolution is about us innovating, experimenting, infusing makeup with skincare and paving the way for another revolution in beauty.
