Revolution Flawless Foils Unicorn Foil Review & Swatch

The flawless foils cost £5 each from Revolution Beauty. They have 2g of shadow and  2ml of primer and a 12-month shelf life once opened. It is not Vegan.


Back with a brand new formula, our cream-to-powder Flawless Foils create an incredible high-shine finish. Use these soft, bouncy shadows alone for a sheer shimmer look, or layer up for a bold metallic effect.

Every shade comes with an Intensifying Primer that works with Flawless Foils (and other eyeshadows) to create a long lasting finish and vivid colour.
Apply a drop of Intensifying Primer to your eyelid and tap until tacky. Gently press the Flawless Foil over the top using a flat synthetic brush or your finger.
The Intensifying Primer can also be mixed with Flawless Foil to create a buildable liquid shadow. Mix a small amount of each on a surface or the back of your hand and gently press onto bare eyelids or over eyeshadow.

Revolution-Flawless-Foils-Unicorn-Foil-CloseI chose just one of the foils from the range of flawless foils range, the unicorn one of course. Partly because I feel it is the most versatile of them. It’s bright white with purple glitter. Revolution calls it a violet duo-chrome.

It’s a creme to powder finish which can be applied with a finger or a flat brush. I find it’s much better applied with the finger and while it’s not opaque it’s great for a wash of colour or applying over a base.

Now it can be applied without the primer but the result won’t be as intense. The primer really makes it shine, bringing out the full foil effect and longevity of this product. I am almost certain the primer is Revolutions Aqua Seal.Revolution-Flawless-Foils-Unicorn-Foil-Swatch

Do I like it? Yes and no. It’s really a product that can be only be used with other foils or on its own. I’ve found that I can use it for a really intense inner corner highlight. However, if you’re into creme products and single colour eyeshadow looks you’ll probably love it.

If you’d like one, you can get yours from Superdrug or Revolution Beauty online or instore for £5.
