Review: Makeup Revolution Pro HD Amplified 35 Palette - Luxe

So Makeup Revolution got its place in one of our drugstores - Tuš Drogerija. On that occasion Ličila.si sent us bloggers a package of few Makeup Revolution products. I like that it's now available in physical stores, because I find it to be affordable brand with good quality. It's especially nice for those that can't shop online. Here is my first part of this review and it's of Makeup Revolution Pro HD Amplified 35 Palette in shade Luxe


The palette comes with a black paper box. The packaging of the palette is that shiny black plastic material. It's actually quite a huge palette. I expected it to be smaller. It also has a huge mirror inside which is a big plus. You can do whole face of makeup using just this mirror and I love it for that.

In it is 30 grams of product and it costs 19.99€. You can buy it on Ličila.si or in Tuš Drogerija. You can also buy it on their official online store for 16.80£.


In this palette you'll find 35 different colors of eyeshadows. Luxe shade range is neutral warm. It has lots of gold, brown, copper, purple and even some green colors. These are basically my go to colors. I love warm toned shadows. Most are shimmery, but the last row is all mattes. So you get a nice variety of finishes as well as shades.

Btw Cocoa came broken, that's why it looks different textured. But I fixed it with a bit of alcohol.

Some shades look really similar. There is some repetition going on and maybe that's due to the fact that they tried to put in one palette 35 shades. But then again I am also missing some shades. I miss more matte shades. One of the essentials shades for me is a bone colored matte shade that is in similar tone as my skin. I usually use this kind of matte shade to set a primer and make other shades blend better. It's also nice to highlight brow bone with it, if you don't like shimmery highlights. I also miss a darker matte brown shade. Cocoa is a medium shade, but I would like to have at least one darker. As far as shimmery shades goes, the selection is huge and there isn't really anything I miss.

The formula differs from shade to shade. Some are on the dry side, some are wet feeling and some even feel like a cream. Matte shades are actually very wet feeling, but they apply a bit chalky. Which is usual with matte shades. That doesn't mean the pigmentation is not there, because it is. It's just a different finish.

 A lot of the shades also have a fallout. Matte shades all have it and most shimmery shades too. So it's best to apply eye makeup first and then your base. Especially, if you're using darker shades. 

Pigmentation mostly depends on the formula. Those that are creamier and wetter, have better pigmentation. Dry textures have poorer pigmentation. In general, the pigmentation is actually good. You will need to build up the color and you loose intensity with blending, but it's a good quality nonetheless. They laso blend well with no problems. Just don't expect anything compared to Zoeva pigmentation for example or Too Faced palettes. 

They are long lasting, but fade a bit through the day. I always use them with eye primer and none of the shades creased on me, even when it was still sweaty outside.

Here are some of the looks I've worn. I've tried almost every shade by now, maybe I left out 4. But I think I got a good test out of these to give you my final thoughts.

I won't pretend that I don't have similar shades in my other eye palettes, because I do. I love the selection of colors, because those type of colors are the ones I love wearing the most. I especially like gold and bronze variations as well as purples. Some of my favorite shades from this palette are Savage, Sell Out, WCW, Bye Felicia, Damn Girl, Werk, DM Me, Player and Cocoa. I'm just a bit spoiled from using better formulas, so I probably won't get much use out of this one on daily basis. But it's in no way bad.

The formula and pigmentation is different with every shade. But in general pigmentation is much better than in the Makeup Revolution palettes that I own from before. I feel like they made an effort and made them creamier, which also means more pigmented. It's still not nearly as good as my Zoeva palettes. But for a drugstore brand this is actually good. They last well (tend to fade a bit through the day), you need to build the color up (so more work, but you'll get there) and they don't crease on the lids, if you use an eyeshadow primer. If you want descent quality eyeshadows, love warm neutral colors and are looking for something that you can buy in the drugstore value then you might just like this one. It's a descent palette for the price.

    1. Wow you are so right. It looks exactly like the 35F palette by Morphe. I didn't even think to look it up, because Makeup Revoluton often times "copies" other brands. Thanks for pointing that out. I'm sure it will help someone decide. :D

  4. I really loved your post!!! I had make so many research before buy this palettes... but i dont find many reviews from this kind of palettes (PRO HD)... the only thing i find is from the Flawless ones... I was looking to buy the Morphe 35F but it was sooo overpriced @Amazon from the regular price on the website as im not in the states right now and later on i find out MUR made a dupe of that one... if u have to make a suggest... would u recomend this one? or the flawless line of MUR... im sooo confuse... and i want to buy something worth it from MUR that has the best pigmentation...

    1. Thank you, I'm glad I could help :). I actually also have a review of the Flawless palette on the blog here:
      http://adjustingbeauty.blogspot.si/2015/03/review-makeup-revolution-ultra.html

      In my opinion the quality is similar. You have some shades that perform well and some less. The new Luxe palette also has some really creamy and pigmented shadows.

      I think it comes down to what kind of shades your like more. You get more product in the Luxe palette, but there is almost the same amount of shades. Luxe had 35 shades and Flawless has 32 shades. ;)
