I don't think I have ever bought anything as quickly as I did these brushes; somehow, without even thinking, I saw them, saw their offer, found an extra discount code, picked a couple of other items and then before I knew it, Make up Revolution were thanking me for my order. This all happened within minutes of getting home, as Jamie was telling me about his day - which I think we can gather, maybe I wasn't paying the most attention to. Make up Revolution had an offer on that you could buy all four brushes for £15, which for four brushes is a very good deal. I was most intrigued to the the contour powder, foundation and highlighting brush, which would have come to just over £16 anyway. If you sign up for the newsletter you can get 20% off of your first order, which meant I got all four brushes for £12 - if my maths is correct! 

Pro Curve Contour Powder Brush PRO-C FP01
Probably my favourite of the collection; it's lovely and soft, yet dense enough to create a neat, precise contoured look to the cheekbones. I mostly use it with powder products but it does work well with cream products too. It's amazing for the cheeks the cut and shape of the brush make it absolutely perfect as it just fits the cheekbone perfectly. I have also tried this brush with foundation and it does work well for that too as it's very dense but still soft so it's really comfortable to use all over the face. This was the brush that initially triggered my excitement to the collection as it looks like a dupe for the Estee Lauder Sculpting Foundation Brush. When I first saw that brush I was very intrigued as I had never seen anything like it but at £37 I wasn't going to buy it, just in case the shape of the brush wasn't that useful. I do really like this brush for foundation and I assume it must be a fairly good dupe for the Estee Lauder brush as they do look very alike. 

Pro Curve Contour Foundation Brush Pro-C FF01
I have tried to use this brush for foundation but it's just too small. It would work well as it is a great shape to fit all around the face, but due to it's size and stiffness, it would take a long time to cover the whole face. I do love this brush for concealer, as it's so easy to blend around all of the nooks and crannies around the nose, lips and jawline etc. It's also good for liquid or cream contouring as it's a good shape and the firmness of the brush does make it good for sculpting out the areas that need contouring. 

Pro Curve Contour Blush and Highlighting Brush PRO-C FH01
I love this brush for highlighting. I normally use a fan brush to highlight the tops of my cheekbones but sometimes I feel like I need a bigger brush to blend it in a little more, which this brush does. Likewise to the other brushes, the cut makes it fit the shape of the face so well and it blends so easily as it's really soft and fluffy. I tend to keep this brush for highlighter cream or liquid, but it does do a good job at blending out concealer too; as it's fluffy but dense enough and is the perfect shape. 

Pro Curve Contour Eye shadow Brush  PRO-C EE01
I like to use this brush for quick application of shadow along the lash line, as it's shape makes it ideal. I've tried it for a cut crease look too and it does work but I still feel that you need something a little finer. I think it would work for contouring the nose but I don't really know what to do with this brush as much as the others. It's nice to have but I probably wouldn't have bought this brush if it wasn't in the set offer with the other brushes. 

I would definitely recommend these brushes as they're really affordable, beautiful looking and really unique. I like the look and design of these brushes and they definitely look and feel a lot more expensive than they are. I haven't tried any other Make up Revolution brushes so I don't know how these compare but I am now interested to try some, so if you have any recommendations let me know!
