I Heart Revolution – Donut Tray – Review and Swatches

The I Heart Revolution Donut Tray was a limited edition set for Christmas 2019. It cost £30 at full price. It is vegan and cruelty-free.  It’s not currently available on the Revolution website but is still currently on sale at Superdrug.
I have seen it on sale for less, at £30 it’s not the best value, as the regular donut palettes cost £5 each. So let’s see what’s inside.

You DONUT want to miss this! A tray of delicious donuts good enough to eat, not edible, but wearable. Smell me, squeeze me, love me.
Featuring donut designed eyeshadow, blusher and bronzer palettes, a beauty blender. Yes you read that right. A donut beauty sponge – shut the front door! Not forgetting a highlighter that will give you a better glaze then Krispy Kreme.
This gift set will drive you glazy!

The set contains,

  • 2x new doughnut eyeshadow palettes
  • 1x new doughnut highlighter palette
  • 1x new doughnut blusher palette
  • 1x new doughnut bronzer palette
  • 1x new doughnut sponge

From here on out, I’m going to call them doughnuts because it’s the English spelling.

Doughnut Sponge

I-Heart-Revolution-Donut-Sponge

The doughnut sponge is simply a set of six white and pink sponges. It’s a nice little set of soft sponges but they’re incredibly cheap when bought separately.

Cinnamon Sugar Bronzer

This is a nice warm toned bronzer. It blends well and goes on smoothly. It’s suited more towards the light to medium end of the skin tone spectrum.
There’s 6.8g of product and has a 12-month shelf life once opened.

Vanilla Frosting Highlighter 

This is a shimmery beige highlighter that’s just a little too deep for me. It’s great for skin tones that are light to medium. It’s a nice glow that doesn’t really show off bold colour but has a good shine.
It has 6.8g of product and a 12-month shelf life once opened.

Pink Frosting Blush

This is a hot pink blusher with a lighter pink next to it. They’re both pretty shimmery blushes They’re actually a little cooler than the swatch appears when placed on my cheeks.
It has 2.4g of product and a 12-month shelf life once opened.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette

I-Heart-Revolution-Donut-Peanut-Butter-And-Jelly-Palette-Swatch

Of the two this one is my favourite. It’s warmer tones and has a nice lighter shade which I can use as under brow highlight. There’s only one matte in this and while it didn’t swatch particularly well it does blend on the eye fairly well. It’s not perfect but it’s a good palette.
It has 1.6g of product and 12-month shelf life after opening.

Chocolate Caramel Palette

I-Heart-Revolution-Chocolate-Caramel-Donut-Palette-Swatches

I like this one less, this is mainly because it’s not suited for my skin tone in-depth or undertone. This one is much better for medium to deep skin tone. Some of the shades pull a weird colour on my olive undertone too. Having said that I’m also not fond of the darkest shade in here because it’s hard to blend and the glitter disappears. The others are good for the price.
It has 1.6g of product and 12-month shelf life after opening.

Overall it’s a good buy if you can get it for £15 or lower.
