I also got their Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner which they also claim to be "amazing". It was £1.50 so hey, why not? My current holygrail eyeliner is running out and if there is a cheaper alternative for that, then I am all for it.
There is 3ml of product in the tube and it comes with a stiff brush applicator. It does produce fine lines with precision and the color does not bleed. However, on the eyes, it's kinda painful to use because the brush really scratches your eyelids. Once dried, the eyeliner does not smudge or transfer. As for the waterproof claims, water will not cause it to slide or anything but if you rub it while wet then it is going to flake off.
Next, I got the HD Pro Scult & Contour gift set which was going at £12. This one comes in a pretty big box with the contour palette, a flat contour brush, a flat blending brush and a blending sponge. So, if you are intending to get this as a gift, it is a rather nice box to wrap.
I'm really impressed by the quality of the palette and the tools. There is a shimmery highlight shade, two matte highlights, a banana shade and four contour shades. The matte highlights don't really show up against my skin but they can be used to set your concealer or under eyes. All the powders are really creamy and easy to work with. The brushes are super soft and caress your face. The sponge is a dupe for the beauty blender. It is very dense and squishy and it does expand when damp. There is a good mix of warm and cool colors for the contours and a variety of shades to match different skintones. Honestly, you can just take a tiny bit of it and blend it out as desired so that all the shades work for you. The banana powder is used for correcting redness but I found it useful in blending out my contour when it's a bit too excessive because I am Asian and we have yellow skin.
Also picked out the HD Pro Eyes & Brows gift set that comes with an eyeshadow palette and three eye brushes. Again, it is £12 and comes in a similar box packaging.
The brushes are very soft and there are 32 shadows to choose from in the palette. According to the box, the first column is to be used as eye bases and the last column is for the brows, but you can totally use them as brown eyeshadows. This is a very neutral palette with a ton of browns, greys and pink plum tones so it is totally up my alley. The first two columns are kinda matte, third one has satin shadows and the fourth and fifth one have shimmer shadows.
I think they are quite famous for their 32 ultra professional eyeshadow palettes so I picked out the one in Flawless. I had wanted the Affirmation palette too but it was sold out and a whole bunch of others were sold out too. These are £8 and come with 16g of product so that is 0.5g per pan. This palette came in a very pretty reflective rose gold box with the shades printed on the back (but really, you can't tell anything from that).
There is a huge mirror inside and the shade names are printed on a separate sheet of plastic, but they seem pretty useless imo because they have so many palettes with so many shadows so who's keeping track of their names? The palette itself is not as big as it looks. It is about 1.5x the length of an iPhone 7 so it fits in my hand easily. It is also the same length as the chocolate bar palettes below.
The Iconic palettes are supposed to be dupes for the Urban Decay Naked palettes and they are £4 each so I had to grab them to try them out. I don't own any Naked palettes so I think these will make great alternatives. I've seen swatch comparisons on other pages and I think they are pretty close dupes! They probably don't sparkle as nicely as the urban decay ones but you can't complain for the price. The shadows are pretty pigmented and they spread very well. The matte shades are not patchy or chalky and the shimmers are intensely creamy and smooth.
You get 14g of product for 12 shades so that is a little over 1g for each pan. I definitely think these are must haves from MakeUp Revolution, especially if you do not own the naked palettes. The palettes have a good mix of matte, satins and metallic shades to create various looks. Plus, they are so easy to put in your purse and bring around.
I'm currently loving the Iconic 3 out of the trio because of all the pink and purple shades and I think pink is so easy to work with.
The Chocolate Bar palettes are from I Heart Makeup, which is another sister brand. This is the Death By Chocolate palette and it is supposed to be a dupe for Too Faced's chocolate bar palettes. They are £7.99 and they do smell like chocolate too and there is a very big mirror. The arrangement of the palette is very similar to that of Too Faced's and the colors are pretty close as well. The shadows in here are undoubtedly pigmented, smooth and creamy. They spread and blend easily and I did not press and rub my finger in the pans to swatch these. Just look at how intense that black is! This is a very neutral palette with some pinks, browns and cool toned colors.
