Unpacking, Haul & Small Review: Makeup Revolution

Hello beautiful earthlings! (I wonder if this should be my thing now?) I have finally received my package from Makeup Revolution that I ordered on 26th December.  It took approximately 10 days for me to receive it from the UK. Though I think they normally ship faster than that since I ordered it during the busy holiday season.

The package came like this in a plastic packet with Medichem and my postal address written on it.

When I opened the packet, it had the items wrapped well in bubble wrap as well as my invoice.  The bubble wrapped items on the right was what I purchased and the one on the left was a free promotional gift during Boxing Day.
I have to say that I am quite impressed at how they bubble wrapped my purchase.  Every gap between the palettes was bubble wrapped.

This was what I purchased from the website. I purchased two of their Full Vamp Lipstick Collection (one for me and for a friend), Iconic 1 (first palette on the left), Iconic 2 (the palette next to Iconic 1 haha), two of Iconic 3 (the last two palettes on the right) and two of the Mermaids Vs Unicorns palette (two at the bottom).
The reason why I bought the Iconic palettes was because I can never afford any of the Naked palette. I would love to have one but I have to realistic with my money and I have a lot of saving up to do with college and whatnot. I have heard good reviews about the Iconic palettes being such very close dupes of the Naked palettes so why not give it a shot right? The palettes are priced at €5.05 EACH! And the lipstick collection was only €2.53! Talk about scoring such a deal.

This was the free Christmas gift I received with my purchase. I got three lipgloss tubes in Eye to Eye, Touch and Move A Little Closer. I also received the Vivid Blush Lacquer in Heat and the one that made me squeal out of excitement, the I  Makeup's I Heart Passion palette! 

I am looking forward to trying these products out and give a review. I know I always say that in every blog post but I am still waiting for the day that I will be getting my proper camera.
The only thing that made me a little sad was that the palettes (except the I Heart Passion) did not come in a box. I am really into the whole packaging and presentation of a product and that was the only thing that got me down.  I will be giving two of the palettes as presents and I hope my friends would not mind if it did not have a box with it even though it is still unopened.

That's it for now. I have to go back studying for my Management exam for tomorrow and I still have work later at 6 so forgive any grammatical and spelling mistakes since I don't have time to proofread!

Peace & Love.
